Google Now Translates Uploaded Documents

Google Now Translates Uploaded Documents

Google Translate could previously take pasted text or web URLs for translation, and the Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer was offering on-the-fly translation. Now Google’s made it easy to put desktop documents through its multi-language processing.

Hit “Upload a document” on the Translate main page, and you’ll be prompted to upload Word documents, PowerPoint presentation files, PDFs, HTML files or straight-up text files. All of them are transformed into HTML and translated to your language of choice. That means you lose any special formatting, of course, but you get a fairly speedy turn-around to get a grasp on what’s being said in a foreign language file.
