The first place to look for help in translating to English is the internet. There are many websites that offer free English translation. One website to check out is http://translation2.paralink.com.

Once the translation has happened the website gives you the option of emailing, editing, printing, or typing changes into the text. A second source to check into is the site http://www.free-translator.com. This site is easy to use. Simply type what you want translated into the dialog box, select the way you want it translated and hit enter. If you need a website translated, copy the browser address and copy it in the web browser dialogue box and within a few seconds the page is translated into the language you have selected.
Another option for English translation available online is software downloads. There is software available online that people can download and use on their computers.

One final way to translate a text or work into English for free is to have someone you know assist in the translation process. Usually a family member or a friend is a likely candidate to help. This process may take more time to complete than a computer or website but you may even become closer by spending time together. One thing to remember in a translation process is to proof read the results. Sometimes a word may have been translated wrong or misspelled. If you can’t read it yourself have someone else proof read it for you to check for consistency.
