Russian Decoder solves the problems related to an incorrect display of Russian characters in the text submitted for translation. It identifies the encoding of a Russian text, and converts it, if needed, into the standard Cyrillic Windows encoding. Russian Decoder uses the transliteration module to convert the Russian text into the Latin characters (transliterate).
Text-to-Speech (text to voice) service converts any text into natural sounding voices in American English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian and European Spanish languages. You can listen to the text and follow the words on screen. The pronounced text segments are synchronously highlighted.
Back Translation automatically translates the target text back to its original language. Comparison of a back-translation to the original text is sometimes used as a quality check on the original translation. By checking the back translation result you can adjust the original text by using other wording and potentially get more comprehensible results.
