How to translate Greek to English online

Not so long ago, machine translation from Greek to English on the internet resulted in something that was neither Greek nor English and therefore of little help to the average traveler.

But now the machine translation from Greek to English is good enough to be very useful if your trip planning takes you away from the usual tourist destinations.

In most cases, machine translation will be sufficient to plan your itinerary. But while it may be tempting to use important documents, it is best to hire a professional translator, especially if some legal weight depends on your understanding of a translated document.

Automated translations will also generally not be accepted for commercial purposes and other uses, such as obtaining permission to marry in Greece.

Google translator

A popular online web translator is Google Translate. It works in two ways: you can cut and paste Greek material into the translation window, or you can just copy the URL and Google will create a translated page. For most purposes, the latter is the quickest and easiest way.

To use Google Translate, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Greek website you want to translate.
  2. Copy the URL (the web address).
  3. Go to Google.
  4. In the upper right corner of the Google home page, click the small boxes icon – these are the Google apps. Once they appear, you will see a picture and the word “Translate” at the bottom. Click on that.
  5. In the large box on the left, paste the URL.
  6. Click the “Translate” button just above the translation box on the right.
  7. Enjoy your newly translated page.
  8. Depending on the length of the page, not everything can be translated. In this case, just copy the remaining text and paste it directly into the “translate” box and click “translate”.

Google also gives you the option to automatically translate websites that are in Greek into English. In the results of the Google search page, below the URL title, you will see the link “translate this page”. Click on that to view the website in English.


One of the original machine translation programs, Babelfish, is still worth using. It is part of Yahoo now Yahoo! Babel Fish was a free, web-based multilingual translation application.

In May 2012 it was replaced by Bing Translator, to which queries were redirected. Although Yahoo! has switched its translation services from Babel Fish to Bing Translator, it did not sell its translation app to Microsoft directly. As the oldest free online language translator, the service translated text or web pages in 36 pairs of 13 languages, [4] including English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean , Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. And it uses an interface similar to Google Translate.

Translation results may differ from other translation services. The Babelfish website is fairly easy to navigate – it has been broken down into three easy-to-follow steps.


Another option is a site called Systranet. At the top of the shaded box, there are tabs labeled “Text,” “Web Page,” “RSS,” “Archive,” “Dictionary,” and “My Dictionary.” After clicking on a tab, you will need to choose the ‘From’ and ‘To’ languages using the drop-down menus. Then paste the Greek text into the white box, click “Translate” above and the English translation will appear in the light blue box.
