Pairaphrase Saves you Time and Money

It has been a good and positive experience overall.

Pros

It does a very good translation. It does not fully substitute the "must have" dominion of the language and variations of the language that I am translating into, instead Pairaphrase saves me time specially if I have a substantial amount of documents to translate. It is quick and easy to use.

Cons

I believe it would help even more if translates the document full page by page instead of line by line per page.

Frustrating

Used Other for 1+ year
Reviewed on 2020/04/21
Review Source: Capterra

Frustrating and a feeling that simple google translate would be easier and faster and often times more accurate - caused by problems with the software's ability to correctly input words and phrases and the software's tenancy to apply bold and italic when it is not in the original without the prompt or ability to correct.

Pros

it runs the translation while i work on other things and it remembers (sometimes to a fault - see below) the inputs from previous translations.

Cons

Worst - the software is very poor when the original document contains bullet points, numbered lists, alphabitized lists, etc.

it is also quite frustrating that if I have an italicized or bold word in an early document, the software will almost always translate that word (or sentence) in the future to an italicized or bold translation, even if the original input was not italicized or bold.

Which leads to the next problem. The prompt to change the text size, italicize, bold, etc in each box (when reviewing the translation and manually changing the result) comes up very inconsistently and often not at all. Meaning the end-translation document is littered with paragraphs and random words which are italicized or bold when they should not be, or certain words or numbers become size 6 font in the middle of a pragraph because they were once used as size 6 font and are not in the translation memory (ability to change hardly ever comes up).

Further - spacing. This software struggles mightily with spacing. For example, if the original document has the following:

Erik R - "I wrote a review of Pairaphrase".

the software will input this as:

Erik R-"I wrote a review of Pairaphrase".

This causes the software to translate ' R-"I ' as one word, which it cannot do of course, causing the rest of the translated paragraph or sentence to become worthless. The problem with spacing changes the input 'word' and ruins the translation.

Also, whole sentences are simply missed inside paragraphs.

Pros

The software does having a learning curve and feels like it is going to be missing some function but after the learning how to use it become much better and has all the functions needed

Cons

Is a bit slow to run the app could use a bit of optimise there. The app has slight learning curve which could be removed with simplicity

Great Translation Software

Used Monthly for 1+ year

Pairaphrase is easy to use and provides great value for businesses with global team members.

Pros

Pairaphrase works so much better than free options (like Google Translate). The free software will usually just transfer everything literally, but Pairaphrase is a little better about translating in a way that's much more easily understood. You can also change specific words or phrases throughout the document you're translating.

Cons

It works well with word documents but sometimes the formatting on PowerPoint will change after the translation.

Pros

I love how I can simply submit an entire PowerPoint file and have the native file automatically translated by Pairaphrase. It's a HUGE time saver!

Cons

It would be easier to have your most used languages accessible through a shortcut so I don't have to scroll down all the way to find them.

Excellent and very satisfactory to translate French-English. As for the cost value, I put 5 stars but I have no idea of what it cost to my company.

Pros

User friendly and the communications you send us are not too much and very pertinent in helping using the program to the best. I am learning gradually without spending too much time on trials!

Keeping up a library on our own excel program, which I still have to save in pairaphrase and test its efficiency. Seems a great plus value!

Cons

A reference file to be able to click on in order to learn about features that we may not know. I was registered by my employer, no information given - no training. So, self-learning if easy but I am sure I would learn about other features I might not even know you have.
