Magic Translator is a multilingual online translator and word processor for Windows. This application can perform translation of documents of any size, to and from English, French, Portuguese, German, Spanish, Dutch, Italian, Russian, Korean, Japanese, and Chinese. The user interface is quite simple to operate. All we need to do is enter a piece of text, select the input language and the output language.
The programs uses external translation services, so we must have an Internet connection, and be online. We can also choose one of the three servers available (Systran, Yahoo! Babel Fish, and Dictionary.com). This program features a word processor, which makes it very easy to manage both the original text and the translated text: open plain and rich text files, save translation, translate text, clear, undo, select font (type, style, size, bold, italic, underline, and color), and print, swap languages, access the Unicode viewer and web translator. We are allowed to switch the interface language from English (default) into French, Italian, German, Portuguese, Japanese, and Spanish. We can try the free evaluation version for a 15-day period. The new version 8.02 of Magic Translator now supports Windows Vista OS.
