WorldLingo language translation offered by Microsoft

WorldLingo's unique combination of machine and human translation services are available on Microsoft's Office Update website, the popular companion website for Microsoft Office.

Visitors to Microsoft's Office Update Website can now access WorldLingo's 10 machine translation languages, and its extensive database of professional translators.

Microsoft General Manager Jeff Olund said WorldLingo's machine translation languages will bring many benefits to their worldwide customers.

"WorldLingo's translation services will enable Office customers to translate their documents and websites into over 40 languages," Mr. Olund said. "We're constantly looking for ways to offer additional value and opportunities to our Office customers, and this service is a great addition to our Office Update Website."

WorldLingo's machine translator provides quick and easy translations of email, web pages and documents into Asian and European languages.

Over 90% of the languages of Internet users will be available through WorldLingo's machine translation service.

Other key features of the service include subject dictionaries, special character input and an automated quote for human translations.

WorldLingo Chairman Phil Scanlan said his company is the only online translator to offer an instant human translation quote with each machine translation.

"The machine translations offer the gist of the text, allowing the user to quickly ascertain the importance of the information," Mr. Scanlan said.

"The instant quote then allows people to promptly send through a professional translation request to WorldLingo," he said.

WorldLingo provides Office Update visitors with a form through which they can upload a document to be professionally translated.

"Our native language translators can translate your documents and websites into over 40 languages."

Specialist translators are available in many fields including legal, medical, engineering and computers.

Customers can also upload any documents to receive an instant quote, without the use of the machine translator.
