Every time I've needed a quick translation, I've never been able to find a freeware application that would give me the phrase, pronunciation, etc, in a timely and finger-friendly manner. Now, thanks to chargedRam on XDA Developers, we now have this solution. Anuvadak is a Google translator app for Windows Mobile that features the following (quote):
1. Attractive UI.
2. Text to speech translation enabled (Not for all languages but for all which Google supports) . The voice is same as used on Google's translation portal.
3. Romanization of the all the supported languages. (Beta)
4. Copy translation
5. Send translation by SMS
And at last
6.) Google like instant translation. This feature is still in development but I am ready to release with beta version. The instant translation feature works awesome with wifi but does reasonably ok with 3g also.
You can click on any past translated texts also and then re-translate them using the sub menus.
So all in all... Whatever Google offers on their website, Anuvadak does it. (Except for auto-detect language. This feature was intentionally excluded. Will be included in the next minor release)
The interface is completely finger-friendly, and shows a lot of promise in future versions. Also, the developer noted that he is working on a Speech-to-Text solution for this app, which is a feature the Android application supports.
