Are you aware there is a translation program called Universal Translator
2000? It has 40 languages and includes those that do not use Roman Alphabet.
While my daughter taught in Japan, I sent her letters in Japanese. She said,
in Japanese at least, it more or less translated word for word, was easy to
understand, but was very bad grammar. Once you install it, it works on [my
computer] Microsoft Word and AOL. You type it in English and it sends it in the
language you choose. I have never used it to translate. Has anyone else? I
purchase mine at Staples, and I do not remember the cost, but am sure it is less
than $100. I have purchased others for European languages, and language
programs for much less. It is worth looking in the bins for old programs, I have
bought them for a few dollars. They are also great to teach yourself a
language, or to backup your child at school.
This might be a cheaper way because translators are few and expensive.
Also, you can take your time.
