Well, still one of best and useful translator add-ons, faster, it's working now but most of times it won't and keep showing the message "Service Unavailable" on addonbar (folks you need to have 'The Addon Bar (restored)' cause translate text will show and fast but only over that bar. I like the addon, pls keep it up and fix that error
A useless translator that translates in a new Google Translator page window. No hoover effects, no translation within own add-on window.
EXTREMELY useless add-on. I would even give it ZERO star.
This add-on is quite handy! The recent Firefox versions don't come with a status bar anymore, I had to install status-bar-4eva to bring it back.
Is there a way to display the translated text inside a popup bubble (like the way how FF displays URL when you mouse-over a link)? Would love to use this without the status bar to save the screen space.
Great add-on, works with a trackpad too (on a laptop). Unobtrusive, doesn't get the translation in the way of your text.
It translates your text as you go, on-the-fly and doesn't interrupt your browsing journey. Great work!
I really like the way this add-on works, but the gesture is really hard to do (maybe for me) and its not working in most conditions. I wish there was a way to customize the gesture or replace it with a simple one.
Nice !!! It is simply shown the answer in the corner of the window. No need to click any button is the feature!!!
But sometimes I draw many many circles, it just not show the translate...
It works! It is simple to use! Thank you!
But I have one small proposal.
Usually the user uses Auto -> Some_Language. Therefore it is worth to define two languages (from_Language1 -> to_Language2) and if there is no aplicable word in Lanuage1 - to use Auto.
In this case it is possible to use a smart trick: if Auto recognised that from_Language is the same as target (Language2) - to make reverse translation (from Language2 to Language1) without language redefining.
I can't believe it's working so well. Simply amazing.
However, the "open dictionary" option only opens a blank tab/page.
one of best translate addon. easy and simple. but 'open dictionary' menu doesn't work?!
This extension is exactly right: it is very easy to use, and greatly helps me when interacting with users from around the world through our web-based application: the language barrier is simply gone!
Nice addon. Can you update all the languages which supports Google Translator)?
Hey rko, thanks for the review. I'm not currently supporting new features for Gesture Translate. I'm waiting a good soul to send me a pull request (Gesture Translate is open sourced at GitHub) with these updates.
Great ! I have changed over from gTranslator to this one ;-)
Works as said..!! Thanks for it..!! :)
It needs a click to open the status bar to use the function, and then another click to collapse the status bar afterwards. These 2 extra clicks is rather inconvenient. It would be better if the status bar could open automatically by the gesture and then collapse by itself after a certain period of inactivity. Other than these 2 extra clicks, the idea itself is perfect.
Hey stephentsang2000! Which version of FF are you using it? Gesture Translate was developed when FF had a fixed status bar, with the new versions of FF, I recommend to keep the status bar always visible. Cheers, Pablo Cantero
Could you add clickable icon for Google's voice pronunciation for selected text? Or make right click - open Google page with selected text (as it is made now), and left click - pronounce the voice selected text
but at the moment it works only once, and then shows an "suspected terms of service abuse" and links to an API error. Could you have a look on it, im using FF7.01.
I fixed it in the version 0.5.8. Thanks for your feedback.
Pablo, this is a great addon but it doesn't work in FF7.
Could you fix it?
Thanks a lot!
Hi Tiago! Tks for the feedback. I updated the extension! :)
I think it'd be great if you could add an option for the text colour that appears in the Add-on Bar. I had a persona that made the bar black and, as a result, I couldn't see the text. What made this worse is that I was testing the add-on and half the time it wouldn't work, so not being able to see that it did, when it did, added to my confusion.I like the idea, but I feel like it's very unresponsive.
Hi calmblythe, thank you for the review. I added a functionality to change the font color. Please, update your version of Gesture Translate. I'm working to improve the "unresponsive" problem. Best, Pablo Cantero
Thank you. : )
Look forward to the new version.
