Last night, I came across a Google program that I believe to be a nifty writers tool, especially when your stories contain different languages. Google Translate. It’s simple to use – type in word/sentence/paragraph, choose language to convert to, and click translate.
The only problem with Google Translate is that it translates languages that use different characters than us to those characters rather than converting to normal characters (A, B, C). For example, if translating to Japanese, it translates using Japanese characters.
But, I’m still looking at it. You can check it out at http://translate.google.com/
