I'm already looking for a way to uninstall it and never use it again - though I tried contacting the developer and see what he says.Another bad point to it: can't uninstall, hard to delete.I had to go through many files, using few apps I luckly had, and manually delete them - all spread around. I wish I didn't need to give such a bad review for [email protected] There aren't that many solutions that I could find for you.
You need to see the translation as you're typing in your own language? The faster the better, but it'd be ok if it was a translation as I hit return.
Or it does the translation between the time you hit return and the time the message gets sent? Mostly it should translate text I've receive first of all - just like google site translate works on websites.
I did a minor edit, hopefully it's clearer now.
That link to "another option" (ULRTMT) seems to be made in Active X (non Mac friendly) and looks to be old and outdated and I just couldn't make it work.
While, Skype Extender is ugly in many ways (installation, running instance, shortcuts, interface, etc) and I couldn't find any way to enable/disable the translator...
Other than that, it's precisely what I'm looking for! I not only can not turn it off at all, its translation is sent back (is not local only) to the person who I'm talking to and sometimes it's completely wrong...Plus let's say I'm talking in english, it will try to translate english to english and build up a cumbersome clustering chat.If you're looking for MSN and / or Windows, just go here.I'm looking for Real-Time chat translation tools for Mac, and preferably using Adium, but it could be for Skype, i Chat or maybe another option if it's really good.So far I could only easily find a plugin for Adium, simply called translator, that uses google, dicts and babelfish, but you have to type commands in and paste the words or sentences, and it's currently not even working on Snow Leopard.Even if it did, it's still not quite as automatic as we'd expect (or see in other platforms as indicated).
