The web, more than anything else, showcases Content. And Content is produced in one language, but often, consumed in many. Hence, one of the most popular web services categories is Language Translation.
There are 3,339 sites on the web that provide some sort of language translation services, according to Alexa. It is a heavily manual task, and if you have experience with Google’s translation service, you probably know that automated translation produces garbage.
The most visited sites in all ‘Translation’ categories, just to give you a flavor of the popularity of these services, which, presumably, confirms demand, are:
