Those are clipboard managers. The first on only works till 2.3 android, and others are not the text selectors.
Maybe I expressed myself incorrectly. What I really miss from old desire is that quick text selection with separate magnifier button (lookup in wikipedia, word define, translate) demo can bee seen :
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8AcxgLyk2A#t=52

Because now when I want to translate or define a world I have to select text select share search for translate app select that app. Previously on sense UI it was: select text click magnifier and vualia.

But anyway thanks for trying to help.

Ok I understand and I've just found (and tried) Finger Translate.
Select a text then copy it and you will have a pop-up (or toast notification) with 2 options: Copy or Translate. It works on KitKat 4.4.2.

It's almost the same feature as the youtube video. Does it suit you?
You could also try this other app: Touch Translator

Not as good as it was on Sense, but I will give it a try and test in in daily use.
BTW selecting only toast (I don't need dialog every time I select copy) is not working. It shows dialog. Well if it will not annoys me in future I will stick with it

Thank you!
