Kempelton Reloaded Large

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've always been very averse to change, so much so that only yesterday i started used FF 13 coming from a very long standing with FF 3.
However i was disheartened when i found my favorite skin was not compatible.
I always used Kempleton Large.
Now, this Reloaded skin is not yet compatible with FF 13, but the regular Reloaded is, so it will tidy me up until Reloaded Large is updated.

Believe me, i'm very grateful for these Kempleton Reloaded skins.
I just don't feel comfortable using anything else.

Google Translator for Firefox

Near perfect, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This addon works well, however i wish it would keep the original format structure of phrases, instead of huddling everything into a single paragraph when doing highlighted translations.

If i highlight three individual phrases, that's exactly how i want to read it, not as a single paragraph.

For example, the following text is an excerpt of a Portuguese poem, comprised of four lines:

------------------------------------------------
"Amor é fogo que arde sem se ver,
é ferida que dói, e não se sente,
é um contentamento descontente,
é dor que desatina sem doer."
------------------------------------------------

Four very distinct lines, right?
However, this is what the translator does when highlighting the text.

------------------------------------------------
"Amor é fogo que arde sem se ver,é ferida que dói,e não se sente, é um contentamento descontente,é dor que desatina sem doer."
------------------------------------------------

The content is the same, however it now reads like prose instead of poetry, because it looses its line structure.

That was merely an example
It's really my only complaint, otherwise it's a perfect translation addon, and i believe it's the same for all translation addons, however full page translation doesn't do this, so it may be possible to get a work around this problem, and i believe that would be a veritable step forward for translation addons.

Beyond this, i very much enjoy the way this addon works, and it's the one i'm keeping unless some other addon works as well as this one, while addressing my only complaint.
Until then i will give a high mark to this addon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.0.1).

So simple, but so useful.
