Changelog Anuvadak 1.1

+ Added QVGA, WQVGA and HVGA support
+ Improved Instant translation but still in alpha
+ Added paste support with a dedicated paste button. No more long press to select paste option
+ Added dictionary items with translation
  • * Nouns
  • * Pronouns
  • * Adjectives
  • * Interjection
  • * Conjunction
  • * Verb
  • * Adverb
  • * Abbreviation
+ Added check for update option
+ Added user-selectable option to show number of items in history - This is major memory improvement. Devices with low memory choose less than 5 items
+ Added support for saving a language pair as favorite or save it as default
+ Added new awesome application icon for Anuvadak - Many thanks to tnyynt
+ Added support to show all indic and Asian languages. Shown in the video
The last enhancement was difficult to add but it happened.

There is a trick to it.
Anuvadak now uses Arial Unicode MS font to show all languages. Unfortunately I cannot pack the font with the application as it would be illegal. Also the font file is around 28 MB. But no problem.
The font is packed with all the versions of Microsoft office 2007 onwards. It is located in Windows> Fonts directory by name Arial Unicode MS. Download the font from the windows (PC) directory and copy it your windows phone > Windows > Fonts directory. Install the app, Restart the phone and bingo!! all languages show up now :D

For people who don't have access to Arial Font, I am attaching a another Unicode font (free). Download that font and repeat the copying instructions as above and it should show up nicely. One thing to remember, when using the alternate font remember to change settings from the application menu to choose Bitstream cyberbit.


The drawback of using this (Bitstream cyberbit) font is that it doesn't show every character in every language. Some characters from Arabic, Persian and Chinese are missing. Hindi is completely missing.

If anybody has any problem, let me know and I will try to help you as much as I can.

I am open for positive and constructive criticism. As I mentioned before I am working on Speech to Text feature as a major release but I will be taking note of the current bugs and will be releasing minor fixes as versions.

Please test it out and let me know of any requests, bugs...

Also I would like to thank everybody for their suggestions and specially to the beta testers for testing Anuvadak 1.1

At last a very sincere thanks to people who have donated to Anuvadak

Works great on my HD2. A quick comment, however:
I normally use Google translator for looking up how to say Chinese phrases. And, of course, Chinese uses a character system. While the characters show up just fine in the app, I do not have the option to view the Romanization of the characters (how they would be pronounced), though this is offered on Google's website.
Any plans to implement this?
Edit: Nevermind, Romanization is evidently supported, I guess Chinese just isn't working for it.

Other than that, beautiful app, defiantly keeping it on my must-have list.

Great app, but might I suggest...

... Let me know the bugs, features wanted.. and I will update it.

Now working on Speech to text... might take some time.. so hang on :)

... Some kind of app memory. It's a li'l tedious to have to choose your langs on every launch. Maybe a config file in the app dir, or a few reg entries.
And, by "Speech to text" do you mean speech recognition? 'Cause, that'd be purrty bitchin'. :D

This app is great i just tried it and it worked perfectly!
This is probably a little bit off topic... but The onscreen keyboard you have in the screen shots looks amazing. Where can i find that skin if you dont mind me asking?

This app is really fantastic. And so useful. :)

The UI is nice. Text to Speech (or speech recognition) is a great feature and works very well with respect to the main languages (French, English, Italian, etc.)

Ability to copy and send via SMS is cool also.

So.... Thank you very much :)


Some things could maybe be improved:

- Could you kindly add the ability to PASTE some selected text in order to translate it.
This would be an important and useful feature. For instance if ever you wanted to translate part of a sentence taken from a webpage...
- Improve the icon of the app.
- It seems that some special characters are not supported for some languages (e.g. Vietnamese, Japanese, Greek).
- Memorize the last selected languages once you exit the soft (instead of English/Spanish by default)
- Ability to send via Email also?

    Hi, chargedRam!

    Now I have translated user interface of your program with changing program code. If you enable NET cultures, localization of your program will be easier.
