            • alternatives

              every word we use has a different meaning depending on its statement.
              why i just can't find other alternatives "meanings" to the same word every time i don't feel like this the meaning that iam looking for, now the statement make sense thanks to SDL.
              "just saying

              • Speed of reading text

                Sir/Madam,
                It would indeed be helpful if there was a mechanism to change the speed of the reading text so that beginners will be able to easily follow the pronunciation which they cannot do now. The speed is too fast for a beginner to grasp what is being said. Besides, the translations are not always correct, either grammatically or even in local parlance. Could you do something about this please. It could be of great help to many people who are interested in learning to speak this beautiful and romantic language

                • Do translations from phonetically written words as well as correctly spelled words, espacially where alphabets are very different.

                  Let users enter words with phonetic spelling and give the correct translation.

                  You're not the only ones with this problem, as I can't find the correct translation anywhere on the web for the word "chernozhopi" which from the context of the book I gather is a Russian insult. I can only get the Russian spelling of the word, but not its meaning. What's worse, the book I'm reading, which was otherwise written in English has other Russian phrases and idioms throughout, and it seems all these words were written in phonetic Russian, but using the English alphabet.

                    • Slow down the speech

                      Playing back the vocal phrases is so fast it is very difficult to separate and recognize the words.

                        • More space

                          I tried to translate a piece of text and found the resulting textbox is far too small to conatin the translated text. Tip: make the outbox large enough to contain the FULL translated text, not just the first so many words. This is useless

                            I suggest changing "enables" to "provides".

                            • Check if your system is working. I entered 6 male names in English to be translated to French. Each result came back in English.

                              I know that all 6 English names I inserted into your “translation box” have different French name equivalents; e.g. Peter in English is Pierre in French. But your system said that Peter in English is also Peter in French. Perhaps your “FreeTranslation.com” site is not really free and that in order to get a correct answer the user must pay something. However, on your home page to this site, I did not see any indication that I needed to pay to get a translation. I did notice a large ad for “SDL” that said this site is “From the leader…

                                Hi Adrian,

                                Thank you for the feedback. Your suggestion for translating names is a good one and we will take it under consideration for upcoming updates to our machine translation engines.

                                As for the free and paying features, we kept it pretty simple; on demand, real-time automated translation on the homepage is all free.
                                We charge only for professional human translation, available here: http://www.freetranslation.com/professional-translation.html

                                Thanks again!

                                          Hi. :-) I had the need for translating Arabic to English and did not like the bad results I mostly got with the extensions I was able to find, so went and looked for a better translator and found yours. Consistently, it provides the most accurate and precise translation of the text and I use it all the time. I would love to see you develop an extension for Firefox, chrome etc, where you can install the translator and have it work in real time, within the Facebook chat windows would be amazing.
