After one and a half year since last release, a new version of TAO Translator arrives. This is a bugfix release, dedicated mainly to SSL handshake error with Google Translate service on some platforms. However, there are few additional fixes. Here’s a full ChangeLog:
A new version of TAO Translator was released today. While BlackBerry 10 and Sailfish OS versions are awaiting approval in their corresponding app stores (usually takes up to several days), Nokia N9 and Symbian users can already download it.
The main reason for v1.3.4 was Microsoft’s plans to shutdown DataMarket API on 20.04.2017. TAO Translator now uses Azure Cognitive Services API. Also, some UI localizations were updated.
A new version of TAO Transator was released just before the Christmas. Today it was approved in all relevant app stores. The only purpose of this release is to fix “server replied: Forbidden” error in Google Translate service. However it also includes two new languages, which were submitted after v1.3.0 release: Hungrian and Portuguese.
A new version of TAO Translator was released yesterday and today it was approved in all relevant app stores. This is mainly a bugfix relese, but because it introduces in-app analytics, I decided to bump the version to 1.3.0.
This morning TAO Translator v1.2.0 was released. The main highlight of this release is transliteration support - one of the most requested features. Transliterations are provided by Google Translate for most non-Latin scripts. It also brings an option to start translation by pressing Enter / Return key, transcription support in Yandex.Dictionaries (provided at least for English language), and enables longer text to be translated with Google Translate. Also, on BlackBerry 10 you can make donations directly from the app.
After a bit more than a year since last release, version 1.1.0 of TAO Translator was released last Friday. Builds for Symbian and Nokia N9 were available immediately, builds for BlackBerry 10 and Sailfish OS were approved in the corresponding app stores today. So feel free to go and update TAO Translator if you didn’t do it yet.
TAO Translator uses online translation services to provide translations. It supports Google Translate, Microsoft Translator (a.k.a. Bing Translator), Yandex.Translate, and Yandex.Dictionaries services. More services might be added in future.
