Reviews

  1. Todero says:

    Excelent! Just perfect. Works very good and very fast. Maybe include theme compatibility (colored bubble according selected google theme) will it be fine 🙂

  2. Sam says:

    Very nice extension, but I don’t like toolstrips…
    I modded this version (0.3) to hide the toolstrips. Much better:D

    Just change the extension manifest to:
    “background_page”: “BubbleTranslate.html”
    and add a shortcut to the prefences;)

  3. Jason says:

    Fantastic extension but, like Sam, I don’t like the toolstrip and only wish I understood his mod.
    What is more irksome is there’s a “hide toolstrip” check-box in the preferences, but it is uncheckable.

  4. Screenwords says:

    Awww man. I can’t work out how to change the language. Useless! Help?

  5. Sam says:

    Screenwords:
    Click the Preferences button in the bottom-left (in the toolbar). A menu appears.. Change the language in the dropdown menu.. 😀

  6. JBuiza says:

    Is it possible to change preferences? I filled out the first time, but I can’t find how to change later.
    Thanks,

  7. DinhPhuc says:

    I agree with you. I can’t change preferences….

  8. v1c1ous says:

    Ctrl+Click in Toolstrip icon open Preferences Tab when “Toolstrip click Translate Text” preference is selected.

    In the next release be added “Hide Toolstrip” and Preferences Shortcut options probably, are waiting for improvements APIs to control extensions preferences and Toolstrip control.

  9. JBuiza says:

    ok, works!! Great extension, very useful.

  10. DinhPhuc says:

    “Hide Toolstrip” doesn’t work >”<

  11. Medyx says:

    Great!
    But some languages not working, (Arabic, Persian, Hebrew)

  12. Mieng says:

    Perfect work!,

  13. very nice!!!! I like it

  14. Vinaya Wagh says:

    Ammmazing! At first I was trying to figure out how it works.. and within no time I was able to read texts of different languages. Very cool & really fast! Great work 🙂

  15. foolo says:

    excellent extension.
    is it possible to translate to a nother language rather than english?

  16. Very impressive work v1c1ous. Eagerly awaiting your improvements.

    A features to consider (API willing) would be an addition to the right-click context menu to translate highlighted text in your language (e.g. English) to another (e.g. German).

  17. Ennio Princi says:

    sarebe molto bello poter utilizza questo straordinario strumento di traduzione facendo come su ubiquity
    rimpiazzando il testo sopra quello che hai selezionato oggetto della traduzione stessa.

    would be very nice to use this extraordinary tool for doing such translation on Ubiquity replacing the text above what you have selected the subject of translation itself.

  18. Amit says:

    Hi,
    It seems the translation to Hebrew doesn’t work. Bug or non-yet-developed-feature?

  19. Due to recent changes in Chromium in the next release will implement all necessary changes.
    Probably will in the coming days, be patient, I working on it.

  20. Dima says:

    Really useful extension! Thank you for the work.

  21. paco says:

    I f******* loving it! Just what I was looking for. Thanks a lot! Just a little thing: I’d love the toolbar icon follow the guidelines of the paper and bench icon. Sorry I’m so perfectionist.

  22. Nedialko says:

    Why is the option “Hide Icon” not active? I’ve set the extension to work with hot-keys and the icon (as pretty as it is) is not needed any more.

  23. Aleksandr says:

    Please add the ability to copy translated.
    Спасибо!

  24. MyBux says:

    In the new version [4.0.228.0 (30421)] does not show the icon 、、could you repair it? and can we hide icon to control …
    ……….The picture like this .http://piczasso.com/i/o63kuw.png

  25. Ofer says:

    Fantastic plugin. Please make the Hebrew work 🙂

  26. Humpparitari says:

    @ Ofer – Hebrew does work? At least when I tried it on Wikipedia. 🙂

    +1 on copying translated text.

    Also, would it be possible to show what language (or languages) the text was translated from?

  27. v1c1ous says:

    @ Humpparitari

    Good idea, maybe in the next releases I will implement it.

  28. shooker says:

    Ofer ment translation to Hebrew.
    Translation from Hebrew works.
    Translation to Hebrew doesn’t work.

  29. freeek says:

    please add max bloob width in options and enable hide-button already! thanks

  30. Jack_Neithen says:

    @v1c1ous

    Maybe, add a option that show a Chromified* icon in ActionBrowser instead actual, will be fine 🙂 (just fashion)

    *Chromified: Term used by DestructBOT in his GmailChecker extension and refers to an image drawed only with outlines, similar to default Chrome buttons.

    I know, it is a non functional option, but will be fine

  31. Todero says:

    Hey Jack, just change your “16.png” file saved in the extension folder. For example: http://piczasso.com/i/16r0lx.png

  32. Humpparitari says:

    @Ofer & shooker – Sorry, I misunderstood. 😛

    One more thing (not that important), would it be possible to preserve links? It’s not that big a deal, since you can click the links in the original text, but it would be nice.

  33. nobicycle says:

    The install-time warning caused me to cancel the install:

    “This extension will have access to your browsing history and private data on all websites.”

    How come such an extension gets such a high rating?

    All I want it to do is translate some selected text. How come it needs ALL browsing history and ALL private data on ALL websites?

    Weird and suspicious.

  34. Todero says:

    @nobicycle, ALL EXTENSIONS have this warning. Is a default warning from Chrome, it is not a particular warning for Bubble Translate extension.

    If you be scare with this, you can see the code of all extensions in your personal Chrome folder.

    Regards

  35. Razr says:

    As I can see, your extension is using Google Translate. Few hours ago Google Translate changed design and your extension stopped working.

    Please fix ASAP

  36. Armstrong says:

    What happen with this extension?

  37. v1c1ous says:

    What happen in what way?

    The extension work perfectly and in the next releases I implemented new functions.

  38. Armstrong says:

    I don’t see the button to install the last version.

  39. cccpmynk says:

    me too, what is wrong?

  40. v1c1ous says:

    I don’t know, is a problem with this page, I not had noticed.

    For download and support go to the original website of Bubble Translate:

    http://code.google.com/p/bubble-translate/

  41. Armstrong says:

    Nice, finally I can hide the icon =P

    Thanks a lot!

  42. Sweny says:

    My browser crashing with this extension esecially when iam shearching something on google, when i was disable this ext. everything was fine again..

    Any ideas ?

  43. Majento says:

    Very useful, well done!

  44. DaVince says:

    Very nice! However, for languages with special character sets, it would be nice to see the pronunciation too. For an example check out Firefox’s Rikaichan extension (translates Japanese with phonetics shown).

  45. Peninsula says:

    nice!!!

  46. mitya says:

    thank you, even in its current condition it is an excellent extension!;]

  47. korzeniow says:

    @v1c1ous, you are my God now! this extension is simply great – so useful, so simply, so helpful 🙂 I have a lot to translate every day and this saves me a lot of time, again: thank you very much!

  48. Armstrong says:

    Real-time is very useful, well done =)

  49. onlyme says:

    amazing! but the icon should be hidden..or .it seemed my chrome doesn’t work when I refresh the page….

  50. azheng says:
