Babylon 9 Reviews
When Babylon 9 was first released in March 2012 it held the promise of quality software package in line with all the previous versions of Babylon. Users of previous versions knew the creator of the software, Babylon Ltd., had a reputation around the world for high-quality translation products. They were expecting nothing but the very best from version 9.
Babylon 9 reviews love the new features
According to most of the Babylon 9 reviews out there users got what they were expecting. The latest incarnation provides all the same functionality as previous versions but also includes a host of new features that continue pushing the envelope for translation software.
For example, Babylon 9 offers a pronunciation function that will provide an audio pronunciation of a given word in either a male or female voice. The software also offers:
- one click dictionary definitions
- translation of words, phrases, or entire blocks of text
- access to Wikipedia information in multiple languages
- integration with the other software on the computer
- integration with word processors and PDF readers
- dictionaries for more than 75 different languages
Babylon 9 software versus search toolbar
There aren't many criticisms of the Babylon 9 software, but the most often voiced is also the biggest complaint. Users across the web complain about the Babylon search toolbar that attaches itself to Internet Explorer, Firefox, and most other mainline browsers. This toolbar is recognized by computer security experts as malware that takes over browser functionality and uses it for various reasons.
The thing to know about the browser toolbar is that it's not part of the Babylon 9 software. It is a third-party add-on the company has, unfortunately, decided to bundle with the main software package. Users can avoid the pitfalls of this search toolbar by un-checking it as an option during the installation process. Failing to do so results in the toolbar being installed; it is very difficult to get rid of if that happens.
As a side note, the Babylon 9 installation process offers several third-party options to choose from. Unless a user specifically knows what each of those options does, it's best to leave them all unchecked to avoid future problems. They can always be installed later on if the need arises.
Positive comments from Babylon 9 reviews
If you look past the issue with the search toolbar it turns out there are lots of positive comments you can glean from Babylon 9 reviews. One of the things people comment about quite frequently is the "one click translation" feature. Here's how it works:
- place your cursor over any given word in the text and hold down the Ctrl key
- while holding the Ctrl key right-click your mouse
- a window will pop up giving you the definition in your own language and translations for all the other languages you've chosen
One click translation works regardless of where it's used. In other words, you can use it in a text document, a PDF document, a website, or in your e-mail. The only time it doesn't work is with text that's been embedded in graphic images.
As for other positive comments users speak highly of the program's speed, its low resource requirements, and advanced features like multi-language spell-check and correction support. No piece of software is perfect by any means. But for the most comprehensive translation tools for Windows or Mac computers, Babylon line is hard to beat.
