Everything is stored to the local history, where you can later find translations using embedded search, delete and manage your translations.
History can be also disabled in settings.
Almost any translation can be played back with the correct pronunciation.
There is a huge amount of languages that are a bit tricky to read correctly for an English-speaker, for example. Therefore, for such languages we provide transliteration along with translation. E.g., if you will be translating "Hello" into Chinese, Instant Translate will yield "你好" as translation and "Nǐ hǎo" as transliteration to get you rid of a conundrum how to read it.
Transliteration can be also disabled in settings.
DICTIONARY, I.E. A LOT OF SYNONYMS:
For majority of translations, Instant Translate will also show a lot of possibilities—divided by parts of speech—how the word can be substituted with analogs.
On almost any page (except Chrome Web Store, iframes and PDF files) you are able to select text and press Shift+T to see a tooltip with the translation. Moreover, in settings, you can create up to 9 shortcuts for different languages.
In addition to translation with a shortcut, we can add corresponding items to the context menu of the browser (when you select text and press the right button of your mouse). By clicking on them, you will also get the translated text in a tooltip.
Instant Translate is a cross-platform app which is available for almost all major platforms. Check out our site for more information: http://insttranslate.com
Please, note that Instant Translate requires the Internet connection to translate something new what’s not saved in the history.
