Bing Microsoft Translator
Rating

A big name in free online translation websites is Bing, which uses Microsoft Translator. You can select your input language or have the site automatically detect it as you type. If you have your microphone enabled, you can speak the text you want to be translated, which seems quite convenient if you ask us.

After you receive the translation, you have options to hear it aloud in a male or female voice, share it, or search Bing with it. Moreover, you can also give the translation a thumbs-up or thumbs-down if you would like to provide a little feedback. The free translator offers over 60 languages.
