In App Translator Lets You Conveniently Translate Text in Nearly Any Application without Leaving the App

These days, it’s relatively simple to take something in one language and translate to another. Whether it’s via a dedicated translation site, mobile application, or through your browser, we rarely find ourselves struggling to discern the meaning of an unfamiliar language these days. However, it can still be a little cumbersome to find a translation when using a phone or tablet, as this often requires you to switch back and forth between applications. In App Translator by XDA Forum Member YaziAndroid looks to change that.

In App Translator is a handy little tool that allows you to select and copy text from a wide selection of Android applications and get a translation, without leaving the application itself. It works by monitoring your clipboard and automatically translating to the target language. This also makes it possible to simply translate something you have just written on the fly without switching applications.

The app is based on Microsoft Translator, and therefore it supports 45 of the most commonly used languages with the option to auto detect unknown text. In theory, this should work from any application that allows the user to copy text to the clipboard, making it a very useful little utility for anyone often dealing with multiple languages. Check out the application thread for more information.

The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
