The best of all I tried. But please add “hide” option.

This translator is the best one of all I tired, and I tried many of them (both free and not free). TranslateTab does not only provide translations; it also includes synonyms and examples of sentences. There is one little thing, however, that I find annoying: there is no “hide after start” option when "start automatically” is selected. So, every time the computer starts, the window opens, and it stays open unless is closed manually. This is just one minor issue - not so important - this is why I am giving 5 stars. It would be great, though, if “hide after start" option was added. Besides that, TranslateTab is perfect.


Works Well With Minor Flaw

Translate Tab works well and seems to translate individual words and short phrases accurately. There is only one annoying aspect to it: When you set the Preferences to start Translate Tab automatically upon powering up your Mac, the drop-down menu automatically opens when the Mac has awakened. Not a big deal; you can click anywhere on screen to close the window. But why have the app do that at all? Plus, it's useless for the app to do that because before I can use Translate Tab, I have to open other apps, and this is an action that will close the Translate Tab window.



No ability to resize the window. This is a problem on language selection as you cannot see all the languages thus you have to guess which language you are picking if your language is below the main window height. Makes no sense in using this if you can’t even select a language. The only way to fix this is to open the preferences dialog so that the window stretches longer, and then go back to the language selection area. Please fix.

Also, does not keep language settings. They randomly revert back to “Detect Language” at times.

Last but not least, clicking the star icon to save a translation for the first time ends up opening a webpage of google translate from WITHIN the app, totally making a mess out of the popup window. Once logged in, there is no way to revert other than reloading the app. From this point, you can star a translation, but you cannot interact with those saved translations.

Unfortunately, Translatium was a way better implementation of GTranslate, but as of today, has been shut down.
