ImTranslator

ImTranslator is the translation application that translates words, phrases and text between more than 100 languages using multiple translation providers: Google Translate, Microsoft Bing Translator, and Translator.

 

ImTranslator application can be run in two modes:

  • from the browser's toolbar
  • as a standalone application

 

Running ImTranslator from the Browser's Toolbar

  • select text with the mouse, then click  imtranslator-small ImTranslator button on the Chrome toolbar.
    The selected text will be transferred to the original text window, and the translation appears in the translation pane.

Chrome-ImTranslator-Toolbar-app

 

  • click   imtranslator-smallImTranslator button on the Chrome toolbar without selecting text with the mouse.
    If you have "Save recent work" option enabled in Options, your last input text will be retrieved and displayed in the original text window.
    Otherwise, an empty text window will open.  Type in or paste your text to translate.

With any movement of the mouse, or click outside of the translation window, the translation application closes.

If you want to keep the translation application open, use ImTranslator as a standalone application. It will stay open on your screen until you close it manually.

 

Running ImTranslator as a Standalone Application

 
Translate Selected Text
  • choose "ImTranslator: Translate selection" from the context menu  imtranslator-smallImTranslator: Translation, Dictionary, TTS
  • or use the shortcut keys: Ctrl+Alt+Z (default)

ImTranslator standalone application opens with the selected text and its translation.

Chrome-Back-Translation

 

By default the back translation window is closed. It's available as a tab on the bottom of the translation window.  Learn more about the Back Translation.

 
Translate Input Text
  • choose ImTranslator from the context menu  imtranslator-smallImTranslator: Translation, Dictionary, TTS
  • or use the shortcut keys: Alt+Z (default)

Type in, paste or drag-n-drop your text to the upper text window. Choose the target language, then the translation provider, and click Translate (Alt+Ctrl+A). 

Each translation provider supports a different number of languages. If you choose the language pair not supported by some of the providers, the provider's tab(s) will be dimmed (not available).  Learn more about Choosing Translation Provider.

To close the application use the X (Close) button.  If you click the mouse outside of the translation window, the translation application will be hidden behind the browser window.  Use Alt+Z shortcuts to bring it back up.

 

Translator and Dictionary Tabs

ImTranslator application switches between the Translator and Dictionary modes using corresponding tabs.
