TAO Translator uses online translation services to provide translations.
Currently supported services:
- Google Translate: supports translation, language detection, dictionary and reverse translations for single words.
- Microsoft Translator (a.k.a. Bing Translator): supports translation only.
- Yandex.Translate: supports translation and language detection.
- Yandex.Dictionaries: supports dictionary with synonyms and reverse translations.
More services might be added in future.
Originally, TAO was written BlackBerry 10 and then ported to other platforms, thanks to Qt
At the time I wrote this app BlackBerry 10 platform was new and there were no apps that would allow you to use several translation services in one app + none of existing translation apps would show dictionary and reverse translations provided by Google Translate service.
One not apparent “feature” is available UI languages (selected based on the phone language): Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Russian, Turkish, and Ukrainian + Czech and Danish pending for next release.
There are plans to make TAO Translator available on desktop systems and Android and iOS versions are also in the plans.Go back
