Back Translation

Websites that are trying to help you with your language problem are in abundance on the Web, but there are none that allow you to compare your translation with the original text to see if your translation is accurate and understandable.

We have implemented the back translation functionality, which translates the already translated text back to the original language, in all our online translation services: ImTranslator extensions (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Yandex), ImTranslator Compare Translations, ImTranslator Translation, and many other services.

Comparison of a back translation to the original text or reconciliation, is sometimes used as a quality check on the original translation.  A back translation allows you to compare translations with the original text for quality and accuracy. Back translations help to evaluate equivalence of meaning between the source and target texts.

If you write a message or a letter to a foreign friend or college, you can check the back translation result and adjust the original text by using other wording and potentially get more comprehensible results.


Don't forget to mark the BACK TRANSLATION checkbox to enable the Back Translation feature.

For your convenience, you can choose your native Interface Language (GUI) to enjoy the translator to the fullest: English, Čeština, Deutsch, Español, ελληνικά, Français, Italiano, Lietuvių, Nederlands, Polski, Português, Română, Русский, Svenska, Türkçe, Українська, 日本語, 한국어, 中文, العربية, עִברִית, हिंदी

It should be noted that the back translation doesn't always generate the exact original text due to the asymmetric sentence structure and word meaning in different languages. The probability of imprecise translation increases when translation is done from one language to another and back and forth.
However, this feature may give you additional benefits to identify any confusion, ambiguities or errors that may arise from the nuances of language and to make sure your text is understandable.

But what make this service terrific is that you don’t have to know anything about translation to actually translate something. You just enter your source text in the original text window, select the translation direction, and press the TRANSLATE button. That’s it! The translation, which is now your product, pops up in the window below. If you know something about the target language, go ahead and scrutinize the result. If you don’t, there is a third window in the bottom that provides you the back translation. If you have pre-selected this back translation option, it is done automatically.
