Sometimes while browsing through various websites, we unexpectedly come across a topic of interest, but find hard to comprehend the meaning of words or sentences as the texts are mostly written in a foreign language.
Being unable to manage this problem independently we usually turn towards the Bing or the Google Translation service! You have to select a text, right-click and then select “Translate with …”. This will open the results in a new window. But what if the whole process could be cut short using a simple utility, and the results could appear as a pop up on the same webpage?
DualClip Translator software does exactly this. The program when downloaded and installed provides translation of selected text or clipboard contents with Google/Microsoft Translator. The translated strings of texts appear either in the System Tray Balloon or in a pop-up window. Let’s see how it works?
How DualClip Translator works
