10KWEB Offers Google Translator to Members Around the World

10KWEB announces the addition of the Google Translator to its many tools and resources. The application became necessary with the site’s expansion into countries where English is not the first or even second language. Currently, 10KWEB operates within eight foreign countries around the world.

The Google Translator is a free translation service offered by Google, Inc that has been in operation since April 2006. The system is based on a method called statistical machine translation. It doesn’t apply grammatical rules to translations and uses algorithms based on statistical analysis, not traditional rule-based analysis. The system does not translate from one foreign language to another but, rather, first to English then to the target language.

The Google Translator is not without its flaws, nor is it a quick fix in bridging languages. But for 10KWEB Co-Founder, Anthony Martins, it is definitely a step in the right direction. He said, “The Internet has brought the entire world closer together. Language looks to be the last barrier for people to overcome. With the Google Translator so readily available, that barrier no longer appears so daunting.”

Over fifty languages are available for translation on the Google Translator, including traditional Chinese, Arabic and Latin. Other features include phonetic typing, spell check of foreign languages and a text-to-speech option.

10KWEB was created January 2012 by Anthony Martins and Thomas Bang as an online resource for aspiring blog writers and small business owners. Their website launched on March 5th, 2012 and is currently used in the United States, Mexico, Great Britain, Germany, China, Morocco, Tunisia, Italy and New Zealand with more markets in development.
