  • Pros: 

    Well designed UI


    utopian price

    30€ for a Google Translate in you menubar? Well you should overthink your price design.

Hola hunters! I am more than grateful to @_jacksmith for a chance to share our updated product with you. This posting is a very special one because it includes all the experience and knowledge we gained during our previous work on Instant Translate that we want to share with you in a form of this awesome update. Perhaps, some of you still remember us as Instant Translate. Mate is a very massive update of Instant Translate. We literally changed and improved almost everything. New name, new design, our vision, all the apps became better and lighter, their user interface — more perceptible, user-friendly and understandable. I hope you will like it! It’s a well-known fact that the first after-launch week is for fixes and improvements, so we would be happy to hear what do you think about Mate. And thanks for all of your support! <3 P.S.: also thanks to @t55 for hunting us previously.

Vlad Korobov@vladkorobov · Product Manager
@alex_chernikov I don't remember, on what does it depend?
Alexey ChernikovMaker@alex_chernikov · CEO at Twopeople Software
@vladkorobov no, it normally just doesn't work on Chrome Web Store pages and in PDF files. Those are all Chrome API restrictions we cannot bypass...

I've been using Instant Translate for many months now answering support requests that are in a foreign language. Now I'm enjoying the new Mate Translate just as much. It is quick and easy enough for me to live chat in a user's native language with little to no miscommunications. I copy the text, hit the shortcut, and the menu item grabs it from my clipboard and translates it automatically. I would love another shortcut to stick the translated text into my clipboard, but even without that, it is streamlining my workflow in these cases. Best new feature (though maybe it was there before in IT but I just recently noticed it?) is the Pin to keep the menu item open if I need to click back and forth between windows. Thanks for the great work Alex!

@macupdatepromo thanks a lot for your detailed feedback! Glad to hear that Mate helps you a lot. We will definitely add a shortcut for quick copying a translation!
