If you want something translated in an easy and fast manner, then you could fire up your Mozilla Firefox browser and use Google’s Translate feature; we’ve even covered a tutorial on how to maximize Google translations use in Firefox. But what if you are not a Firefox user, or you simply do not want to open the browser you currently have installed on you machine? In that case you use Fried Babelfish.

Fried Babelfish is a simple desktop application that can be used to translate text from one language to another language. It takes the browser out of the equation, and by using the resources provided by Google Translate it allows you to achieve your task swiftly and effortlessly.

“When you are using online translators in your web browser, it's not that convenient to have to keep switching the languages back & forth to translate an ongoing conversation between 2 people. It is also kind of clunky to have a full browser window with toolbars and extensions getting in your way. And most browsers lack a feature to keep the window on top of all others. Originally, Fried Babelfish was powered by Babelfish and served as mini ad free version of their translator,” explain the software’s developers.

Fried Babelfish is extremely simple to use. All you have to do is download the freeware program, unzip, and run the .exe file (no installation required). When you get tired of it, all you have to do is delete it (no installation means that there is no uninstall). When you fire up the app you will notice two tabs: one is designed to translate the foreign language into English for example, and the second tab is meant to translate English into the foreign language. When you need something translated, just type in the text and click “Translate”; switch between the two tabs according to your needs (if you need to understand what your conversation partner is telling you or if you need to tell them something.
