Get Familiar with Foreign Languages with Floating Translator

Cześć! Co słychać? If you wonder what any of that means, I’ll answer your question. That means “Hi! How are you!” in Polish, and most of you would never understand it or even be able to read correctly without a translator. Knowing more than 2-3 languages isn’t common, hence the popularity of Google Translate and other online services that translate text from one language to another.

Google Translator is very popular, but to open it you need to make a shortcut or go to the application drawer, find it, open it, and input the text to translate. Needless to say,  that this takes time. That’s why an application by XDA Forum Member lotdrops is quite interesting.

Floating Translator, as its name suggests, is a online translating service available as a small floating window on your screen. You can input text in this window or minimize it, so it becomes a small icon available to open from every work space. You can use it while browsing the web, playing games, or chatting with friends. Currently the app supports English, Spanish, Catalan, Polish, German, French, Italian, and Portuguese, but more languages will be added with future releases.

If you’re not afraid of learning new languages and use a translator as a part of your learning curve, don’t hesitate to visit the application thread and give Floating Translator a go.
