How to Use Translation Comparison

Select a text on a webpage and:

  • click Translation Comparison icon translation-comparison-icon on the browser's toolbar
  • open the context menu and choose translation-comparison-icon "Translate selection to & Compare"
  • use the shortcuts Alt+2 (Ctrl+Alt+2 for Opera)

The Translation Comparison application displays the selected text and its translations aligned side-by-side with up to three windows. Each window corresponds to a different translation provider .



The number of windows depends on the language pair selected for translation, because the translation providers support different number of languages. If a translation provider doesn't support some of the languages, the number of translation windows may switch from three to two, and the list of translation providers may change based on supported languages. 



The number of translation windows and the providers priority order can be set up in Translation Comparison Settings.  

The providers priority order is very useful when the number of windows set in View is less than the number of available translation providers for a particular language pair.  In this case the Translation Comparison windows will display the first providers from the priority list.

You can swap the translation providers on the fly using the "Replace with" icon Replace-icon.  Click on the icon to choose a different translator.  The new providers priority order will be in effect until the browser's restart, then the Translation Comparison settings will be restored.



You can also alter the View of the application on the fly to 2-window or even 1-window mode using the corresponding icon on the toolbar compare-trannslation-icon.  The new appearance will be in effect until the browser's restart, then the Translation Comparison settings will be restored.
