Hi,

I liked the Instant Translate addon because when reading a document with the occasional word say in German, I can have have NVDA translate it immediately without the hassle of going to the internet. I will be great if someone with the expertise can write another translation addon.

Thanks.

As a temperary solution go to blindaudiogames.com
Ian reed has written the jgt addon which works for japanese games, you will need a username and password on his site as he is paying for the translations for these games and the translations are cached on his server.
He eventually hopes to have all the translated japanese games at least on his server making as little requests to google as he can.
Its not an official nvda addon but it works, another unofficial addon which is on the jeff.tdrealms.com nvda site with all the others is if interpriters by nick stockman or is it stockton.
This handles glulx and a few other interpriters this one is not official and has not had updates for a while but its good.
The only thing one needs to do with winfrotz is to start the program first before opening a game with glulx this is fine.
Sadly google translate will not work by addon but you should still be able to translate webpages, there is a user limit on it to.

Hi! Yes you are right! The addon has stopped working because of
following reason:
The instant translate addon uses Google Translate API to translate text
across language. Now Google has changed the API and the addon can't use it.
The addon can't work until Google change the API again or the addon
author find another translate API.

I don't think that there is an alternative addon available at this time.
I suggest you to use other translation software such as QTranslate.
Hope that will help!

Best Regards!

Hi,

I used to use the Instant Translate NVDA addon to translate the
occasional
work in a foreign into English when using NVDA. This addon does not
seem to
work any more. Can anyone tell me what I can use to translate foreign
words
when in NVDA.

Thank you.
