What to look for in translation software?

Discover some of the minimal features that a good translation software should have to make your website multilingual.

Are you looking for a translation software solution to translate your website, but you are uncertain about which one is the best?  This blog post might be for you.

We have compiled a list of suggestions about the elements and qualities to watch out for in a translations software. 


1. User-friendly interface.

It’s strongly advised to choose a translation software that provides a user-friendly and easy-to-navigate interface to create projects, add new languages or edit translations. 

 2. Ensure you can invite other people.

For example, you may want to work with external translation agencies to ensure a consistently high level of translation quality.

 3. Quality check: Check the accuracy of the machine translations

Machine translation saves indeed time, but only when they are accurate. Use translation software that uses advanced machine learning and reliable automatic translations.

 4. Make sure you can search for translated content 

Ideally, the translation software should provide a way to search for translated content on a specific page on the website or the whole website. 

 5. Check you can manually edit translations

The software should offer an initial automatic machine translation and provide the possibility to review and edit all translations. 

 6. Supported languages 

You might want to check whether the languages you need for your multilingual website  are supported by the translation software.

 7. Nice to have: Customisable language switcher

Make sure the translation software provides an easy-to-configure and customisable language switcher so you can tailor it to your needs.

 8. Affordable cost

Very important to compare different plans and choose the one that you need and that you  can afford. 

 Still not sure? Ask for a Demo

We suggest you get started with a free plan or ask for a free demo if you are unsure about using the translation software.

We hope this list will make it easier for you to choose the best solution to translate your website. Dilingual is a translation software solution that has been built having all the features listed above in mind.
