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.

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
