Babylon is a comprehensive set of tools for translating among 75 languages. From the program's interface you can search for the translation of any word to the language that you want. The program includes an updated package of dictionaries and 17 new Wikipedia titles. So, when you perform a search, you will get translations and definitions from different dictionaries at the same time.

A peculiar feature of the program is that it allows you to translate any word just by pressing "ctrl" and the right mouse button over any word in any Windows program. Of course, these hot key combinations can be changed at will.

A new feature included in this version is the translation of web pages. You only need to type or paste a URL into a small window, choose the source and target languages, and voilà.

Another new feature is the translation of documents. That is, you can open any text document (MS Word, PDF, Text, etc.) and the program will automatically translate it to the language selected. It is worth noting also that now the program can automatically detect the source language.

Finally, this application brings other services, as a units converter, a speller, human translation service, etc. All these tools make Babylon one of the best programs for language translations.
