Default [APP][4.0+] Floating Translator BETA [v0.5.2]

This app is a floating translator and dictionary.
It supports Arabic, Catalan, Chinese, German, English, French, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish and Vietnamese. More languages will be added in next versions.

Link to Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ife.translator

Having the interface in a resizable floating window, you can translate without leaving the app you are using, so that you have the text in front of you the whole time.
Furthermore, when you touch out of the window, it becomes a little ball so that it doesn't interfere with the reading/writing, and you can open it again with a tap. In a similar way to facebook messenger.

Features:
  • Floating window.
  • Translate without leaving current app.
  • Dictionary and synonyms.
  • Bubble mode to take up less screen.
  • Notification mode.
  • Bubble size can be changed.
  • Resizable and movable window.
  • Posiblity to lock it if you want it always there.
  • It remembers the position and size, so that you always have the same experience.


We haven't translated the interface of those languages we can't make sure the translation is acceptable (we don't trust google translate for that) so if anyone would like to translate it to his own language, we would really appreciate it.

It is our first app, and we want it to be as good as possible. Therefore we would appreciate your feedback, bug reporting, suggestions, and anything to improve it!

Special thanks to:
@pingpongboss for his awesome StandOut library.
Pere-Lluis for finding several bugs, for his ideas to improve the app and being always there to test alfa versions.
@omarainea for translating the app to arabic, and suggesting ways to improve the app.
Christian Orjeda for improving the german translation of the app.

looks good..
i will check and report back later..

Btw instead of a bubble, if theres a persistent notification in status bar, that will be better ... Like clicking minimize will send it as notification and we can click it to get it back onscreen ..

We are working on that. We have done that but it doesn't work well enough, yet. When we figure out how to do it properly it will be added. Thanks for your feedback!!

That would be great! apk attached
We are working on a couple extra features that should be added to the app in a couple days, if we work out a couple difficulties.

@lotdrops ,I think adding Arabic language to this app would make it really popular,
I can help you with that if you need any, I'm familiar with translating app, although I think translating this app would be different.

Anyway thank you for the incredible app, and keep up

It's one of the next languages to be added. And it souldn't take a lot of time stay around! it might be added in a week or so, if we don't encounter much trouble with the different characters...
