Crow Translate is a very useful translation utility. It offers a choice of engines, a simple to use interface, and has a very small memory footprint.
If you prefer a console interface, you’ll be pleased there’s a console interface for Crow Translate. There’s a good range of options too.
I’m not a fan that the software starts minimized by default, although that’s easy to rectify in the Settings section.
One of Google Translate’s useful features is it translates web pages. Paste a URL into the service, and it’s translated to the language of your choice. Sadly, Crow Translate doesn’t offer the ability to translate web pages.
