The Translation Comparison application displays the selected text and its translations aligned side-by-side with up to three windows. Each window corresponds to a different translation provider .
The number of windows depends on the language pair selected for translation, because not all translation providers support all languages. In this case the number of translation windows may switch from three to two, and the list of translation providers may change based on supported languages.
You can change the View of the application to 2-window or even 1-window mode, if desired. Use the corresponding icon on the toolbar, or use Settings to change the View.
