As a native English speaker working in Spain, I'm a big fan of Babylon's desktop translation software. So, when I heard the developer had released a PDA version of its app I was naturally intrigued.

This pocket-sized version of Babylon is designed to help you perform translations on the go, and boasts support for more than 20 languages.

After installing the program through the . exe and restarting your device, you'll be presented with a window at the foot of your screen where you can get cracking with your translating.

You just need to enter a word or phrase into the box and click on 'Go' to translate it into your desired language. Languages can be set up through the options menu by ticking those that you want to translate into, and the order you want to translate in.

You can perform translations into up to five languages at a time. The options menu is also home to a setting for full text translation, if you're entering whole sentences.

The translation process is carried out via the Internet rather than through an internal database, meaning that the procedure can be a slow one depending on the speed of your data connection.

The translations themselves are pretty accurate from what I can make out, although the grammar isn't always spot-on when you ask Babylon to decipher whole paragraphs.

There's also a neat option where you can quickly translate words on a web page just by dragging the Babylon icon onto them from its position at the top of your screen.

If you need to work in more than one language on a regular basis, Babylon Mobile Edition provides a reliable way to do this without the need to be at a computer.

Babylon Mobile, a new version of Babylon designed for Windows Mobile powered devices, now offers you translation on the go in more than 20 languages, from a variety of authoritative sources.

Reliable translation is at your fingertips - all you have to do is type the text you want to translate and then click "Enter" to get the results.
