Another feature that it would be useful (at least for me) is a button in the UI to quicky swap the currently selected source and destination languages (as often you just need to translate to-and-from between your native language and a specific foreign language)

Hi ! Tks for your work. Deepl is the best in my mind. Really better than google. And I want to avoid google. Good luck for implementing deepl.

Wow so quick and solved very well! thank you very much!
Is it normal that I can not select yandex and deepl? XA2@

Yes. They're not implemented yet. Both translators need API keys and I don't want to use them. I am trying to figure out how to avoid the usage of API keys while continuing to provide a good translation service.

Thanks for the app :) one suggestion: can you add an copy button for the translatet text?

dgrr's picture

Added. Now you can copy to the clipboard just by clicking the translated text

Just wanted to say that I like the app. It works well, has a nice name and icon and a even a little animation when switching languages. On the functional side of things I also really appreciate the fact that recently used languages are at the top. Good job :)

BTW, TAO Translator performs these tasks nicely for long.
It is Free Software hosted at Github, supports multiple mobile platforms and is available for SailfishOS at OpenRepos and in the Jolla Store.

Specifically displaying recently used languages at the top of the language selector, as suggested by @simosagi for Translator, is also discussed for TAO Translator.
Hence it might make sense to combine efforts (e.g. by contributing to it), instead of reimplementing the same functionality again.

Thanks for your reply, I didn't know about that application. Anyway, I made this app because I didn't found anything similar and also I wanted to learn how to make SailfishOS apps. It's my first time using Qt. Also, `tao` uses API keys for Yandex and MS, I want to avoid the usage of API keys.

About the suggestion, I am working on that and maybe the new version will be available today.

Again, thanks for your reply and suggestions. I am new in Qt and in Sailfish, so maybe I am doing another app that already exists with no new features, but really, I am doing that for learning purposes.

That is absolutely understandable, it was just an idea.

I accept suggestions here

objectifnul's picture

Nice. Maybe the choice of languages could be sorted better.

dgrr's picture

Any suggestion to sort that list?

simosagi's picture

I have a suggestion on that: start e.g. with an alphabetical list of languages, but then as the user select translation languages, put the used ones on top of the list (i.e. it will be quicker to find them and select them next times). You may need to provide also a 'reset sorting' button or menu option to return to default order. 

dgrr's picture

Ok. That's a good feature. Will do.
