Frequently Asked Questions


Can Firefly read/translate text in other languages?

In order to translate text, highlight the passage you want translated. Click the “Translation” button in the top right-hand corner of your screen and choose the desired language from the drop-down menu. Firefly can translate to and from:

  • English
  • Spanish
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Portuguese
  • Finnish

While the text translations seem accurate, only Spanish can be read proficiently by Firefly. If translating text into languages other than Spanish, we recommend using the desktop PC version of Kurzweil, which can both translate and read foreign languages much more fluently.
