Word Magic Review

By Business.com Editorial StaffLast Modified: December 18, 2017

Word Magic provides a translator for the Spanish to English and English to Spanish market. While only offering one language pair is unusual, Word Magic Translator Professional Plus has an extremely robust feature set in this convenient and powerful limited-language translation software. The combination of just Spanish and English may sound like a narrow field, but Word Magic translates International, Mexican and European Spanish to and from American and British English. This degree of language specificity helps you communicate in the most appropriate language style for the areas of the world you are doing business with.

Other features of the Word Magic Translator Professional Plus that you find less often in translation applications include a list of 50,000 first names, cities and countries in each language, with the corresponding gender designations. Like many other translation programs, Word Magic pronounces words or sentences for you so you can become more fluent in your chosen language. But, it takes voice recognition one step farther and allows you to speak your translation tasks to your computer without a mouse or a keyboard. This voice-command feature is not found in any other translation software we reviewed. Word Magic also automatically recognizes the language in front of it. This sounds as if it would be a common feature, but in fact it can only be found a just a few of our top-ranked programs. Another of Word Magic’s more unusual features is a context-style dictionary or interactive translation that shows you several pictures for each of your key words. This is really helpful if you are looking for the word for a large ship rather than a small boat because a photograph goes a long way toward helping you define a precise meaning and making a better word choice.

Despite its many better-than-average components, Word Magic Translator Professional Plus also comes with the features standard to most translation software, like spell checking, translation memory, specialized dictionaries and the ability to specify a text string that should not be translated.

Because of its niche focus on Spanish, Word Magic’s translation software is not an application that works well for businesses with global needs. However, if Spanish and English are the languages your company focuses on, you’ll find both robust and unusual features, like automatic language recognition, picture dictionaries, and localized Spanish and English, as well as convenient voice commands in Word Magic’s Translator Professional Plus.
