If Google Translate is one of the most popular tools of the Mountain View firm, Translator Toolkit is much less. Unfortunately, the few diehards who continued to use Google Translator Toolkit, the service will be closed in a few days.
Indeed, from Wednesday, December 4, Google Translator Toolkit will join the Google graveyard and will definitely close its doors, such as Google Plus, Google URL Shortener, or YouTube Gaming.

The Google firm took the opportunity to cite other alternatives available.
As reflected in its interface, Translator Toolkit has not been updated for some time. Google announced this closure for the first time last September, emailing users who were actively using this service. Obviously, Google Translate is not affected by this decision.
In its official statement, the Mountain View firm explains: “The Google Translator Toolkit was launched more than a decade ago to help our users, translators and the world to create and share translations. When we launched our site, there were few web-based options for translation publishers, but now there are many excellent tools available, including Google Translate, which will continue to be available and which will not be available. is not affected by this. As a result, the use of Translator Toolkit has decreased in recent years. So now, after many years and billions of words translated, we say goodbye to Translator Toolkit. Many thanks to our users around the world. “
Google Translate will continue to exist and help millions of people around the world. The instant translation tool has long had a bad reputation for its reliability, however the progress made is incredible.
