Casper, WY (PRWEB) September 11, 2009
It's now easier to find a book you want to read in your native tongue and it's free. Imagine walking into a library with every single book on the shelves available in 21 different languages. Thousands of digital books, called ebooks, can now be downloaded for free and instantly be translated into the language of your choice. Authors benefit too. They can now serve a huge global audience via the Internet and reach hundreds of millions of potential readers. Readers simply and conveniently download their favorite ebooks from anywhere in the world via any internet browser.
Hundreds of thousands of pages of knowledge, wisdom, humor and fiction captured digitally can now be translated with the user-friendly Google Translation tool. Recently, Paradise Publishers, the company behind one of the world's largest online ebook libraries, at http://www.Free-Ebooks.net, converted all of its content from Adobe's popular Portable Document Format (PDF) to the more convenient and efficient HTML, the underlying software code for websites. To many writers and readers it's technical computer-speak but what it means in everyday language is both increased distribution and availability to all.
As Paradise Publishers' President Martin Wales explains, "It's amazing and liberating to see the Google Translation tool work. Readers can potentially view each of our books with a choice of 21 different languages - free of charge! Authors whose books are submitted to our site enjoy the pleasure and excitement of having their own creative works available in languages that appeal to readers all over the world rather than only in their native country or region."
While computerized translations have not been perfected, they are certainly adequate - and they are improving in accuracy all the time. Any ebook writer, who wants to see their material read in multiple languages, simply submits their titles to Free-Ebooks.net. Those seeking translated works - perhaps studying and practicing by reading books and stories in new languages - can go to the site, download as many ebooks as they want at no cost and start reading.
"We offer the Google language translation tool on all HTML books and on every page of our site," adds Wales. "Each visitor to the site has the ability to use a translation button on top of every page. All you have to do is click on it to get instant translations of all our ebooks."
