Free text translation has been gaining more and more popularity over the years. An online text translation service enables you to translate from and to common languages. Babylon has recently lauched a number of such services – all FREE OF CHARGE:

1 – Oversattning – Swedish translation to and from 26 languages.

2 – Tlumacz – Polish language translation of texts.

3 – Online çeviri – Turkish text translator to and from 26 languages.

4 – Vertalen – Translation to and from Dutch.

5 – Переводчик – Russian full translation

6 – 日本語翻訳 – Japanese translation of words, phrases and texts.

Before the advancement of the Internet, and its ability to offer prime services, translation of texts free of charge could have been something inconceivable, but today you have at your disposal an array of online dictionary sites and text translation tools free and easy to use: Babylon.

Babylon is certainly the best known company when it comes to translation and dictionary software but what many still don’t realize is that it also offers hundreds of free sites where users can achieve instant translations of single words, full phrases and even whole texts! Granted that the service is provided by an automatic translation tool, but one of the many advantages of using Babylon’s service is that all you have to do is a little editing work to have a high quality translation for free and without wasting any precious time.

The City of Spires

I guess that my love affair with the Oxford Dictionary started after I first visited Oxford as a undergraduate student in History specializing in family history and genealogical research: its exquisite architecture, quaint shops and cafes, lovely sun light (well, when there is sun) and friendly people. Ever since that first visit, I’ve been to Oxford many times, and it never ceases to amaze me the peace of mind and spirit I feel each time.

As you probably already know, Oxford means the “Ford of the Ox” which was a name given by the area’s first inhabitants, the Saxons.

Only on the 12th century the city of Oxford began having a great deal of notoriety due to the establishment of the world’s famous Oxford University, which is today’s one of the world’s oldest, if not famous, universities.
