Google Translate for Translators (GT4T)


It works a charm! I really believe this is a correct use of MT, and applaud your inventiveness.

Google Translate for Translators (GT4T) is a translator’s productivity tool that seamlessly integrates Google Translate into all text applications. It can help you translate faster by replacing selected source text of your choice with translations from Google.

GT4T pro works in all applications. GT4T pro is an unobstrusive stand-alone Windows application. After running it in the system tray, you can then use the system hot keys it provides in Word, Trados, Wordfast, notpad, webpages, etc. In fact, the hot keys work anywhere you can type text.

Select and hit the hot key. Whenever and where-ever you select some text (Always use CTRL+SHIFT+Right or Left Arrow to select texts. It will be much faster than using the mouse!) and hit the hot key (CTRL+J by default), the text will be replaced by its translation from Google Translate.

Special hot keys for various CAT tools. If you are using TagEditor, Translator’s Workbench, Trados 2009, Wordfast pro and SDLX, Hit CTRL+ALT+J, the current segment will be automatically translated and hit CTRL+ALT+K, the next segment will be automatically translated.

Many Language pairs: Google Translate translates between 52 languages and GT4T supports all languages pairs that GT works with! Check Google Translate website for a complete list of available languages.

GT4T never expires! GT4T is not a freeware, but you can use the trial version as long as you wish. A nag screen will appear occasionally after you use it 500 times but you don’t have to pay – if you don’t mind being nagged:)

Google Dictionary & Plain Text Pasting: Select a word anywhere and press down CTRL+SHIFT+D to check the word in Google multilingual dictionary instantly. Press CTRL+SHIFT+V to paste text without format information (font, size, color, etc). These functions are free: you will never get nag screens when using them.

GT4T is available in two versions: Word Edition and Professional Edition. Word Edition is an word add-on that works within Microsoft Word and Professional Edition Works in all applications. The two versions can coexist on one computer. If you buy the license for the pro edition, the Word edition will also be licensed.

Hot keys Summary:

Word Edition Professional Edition Action
CTRL+ALT+H CTRL+J Replace selected text with its translation from Google Translate
CTRL+SHIFT+V CTRL+J Copy some text and paste the translation elsewhere.

Replace with translation followed by source text in bracket,e.g.

“love” is replaced by “爱 (love)”

CTRL+ALT+D CTRL+SHIFT+D Check Google on-line dictionary
CTRL+SHIFT+V CTRL+SHIFT+V Paste plain text (text with no format information)

Translate current segment (Workbench, Tageditor, Trados2009, SDLX,

Wordfast pro)

    Hi Dallas,
    I liked your tool very much, so I bought the Pro version. There’s a little problem that’s bugging me.. If there’s a period in the middle of the sentence like in e.g. or i.e. the whole translation is not returned.
    Es gibt drei Module z.B. A, B und C.
    There are three modules e.g.

    Any fix for this?

    Hi Shana,

    I am sorry that the installer doesn’t work out on your computer. I have prepared two files that you can use to manually install GT4T. It is very easy too.

    First you need to click on the following links to download two files:


    To use GT4T_pro, copy the file gt4t.exe anywhere and run.

    To install GT4T_Word, copy the file gt4word.dot to:

    C:\Documents and Settings\your windows user name\Application Data\Microsoft\Word\Startup (in Windows xp)

    C:\Users\Your windows user name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP (in Windows Vista or Windows 7).

    And restart your word.

    After installing and running gt4t.exe, click on the green arrow on your system tray (bottom right) or press down CTRL+ALT+G for help.

    I hope this helps! Thank you Shana

    Hi Joss,

    If you are using Word 2003, go to Tools -> Macro ->Macros –> find “SetupLanguagePair” in the macro list and click run.

    Hi Dallas
    I just downloaded the version for Word and it says I need to set the language pair.
    Ctl + alt + g doesn’t do anything here – is there another way to set the language pair?

  • Dallas

    Thank thas Betsy. Replacing all instances of a document is a wonderful idea. I will add that to the next version.

  • Betsy

    Do you plan a shortcut key combo that would allow us to translate all instances of a word in a document? In other words, in addition to ctl + alt + H that translates one selection only, could you make another shortcut that would include both the translation and also find and replace all instances?


  • Betsy

    But can you or anyone here suggest a good way of using GT4T with Wordfast Anywhere?
    I am impressed with Wordfast Anywhere, especially its $0 price and high speed, but I don’t like the automatic MT it gives me, which is always bad and I have to erase it before translating. I end up just referring to the google MT to confirm terms. That’s why I love your GT4T.
    Any ideas? My pair is Japanese to English.
