About our translator

Chinese is one of the most spoken language in the World. It is spoken by over 1.35 billion people worldwide both as first and second language.

Those services can either be expensive or if it is free the quality of translation is often poor and unreliable.

But the good news is you can make unlimited requests.

While the translation result is not always 100% accurate - with a few modifications it can be pretty accurate. We have also integrated a Google Input tool which can be used to easily edit or modify the translated Chinese Traditional text. Besides, this software is evolving and improving every day and shortly we hope it can produce near to perfect translation.

We have also integrated functionality with which you can download or copy the translated text and either share them on social media or use on Word Processing software (such as Microsoft Word) for further formatting.
