Translate Small App_2If you regularly need to translate text whilst on the move, then the “Translate Small App” may be just what you are looking for. It comes from serial Small App developer hansip87 and provides a small window that can translate using three different engines including Google, Bing and SDL.

    Hi mate,
    Let me give you facts:
    1. Google Voice will almost always move your activity down. So when you want to translate more than once you will be annoyed fast.
    2. To say something to Google or even type it will require you to speak the whole words plus the command. It will add some words to it everytime.
    3. Google is not the only service and certainly not always the best. So having Bing and SDL is better to help.

    Hi mate,
    Yes it might be as not versatile as the other one but first, don’t know the reason why the old app is removed but translation is paid service at least from Google and SDL. The only way to get it free is via web service.

  • so where

    There is no more worthless set of apps in this world than small apps. Have zero use.

  • hansip

    Hi ellis,
    Well WebView based program is not all bad. You need to consider these:
    1. Translation service from at least Google and SDL is actually a paid service. The only legal way is to use WebView to use it as free.
    2. Offline translation requires a big dictionary from my part or even i need to create paid service so every letter is recorded. It will certainly doesn’t comes as free.
    3 even with WebView structure your text can be translated automatically upon copy command. So it will be much faster and seamless.

    Hi there,
    Just FYI:
    1. Icons for this app is grabbed from Google Material Design resources.
    2. I need Sony to update their Small App SDK first in order to apply all Material Design resources.

  • hansip

    Well for some single tasking people then yes.

  • dex

    You don’t need to add ‘Small App’ to the name.

    [APK][1.1.1] Translate Small App – More Compact Mini View!

  • Khillo81

    That’s your opinion. I for one use them a lot. Better than split screen option from Samsung which has zero use on a small screen. So there…

  • hansip

    Well i will consider to change the name especially on small app launcher. Thanks.

  • HNet
