pyGtranslator 0.6

I've just updated pyGtranslator. Looks like google online translator changed few things, thats why pyGtranslator wasn't working anymore. It's using a google api now. Hope we will not exceed 100,000 characters/day limit :) 

I've build just 64 deb, because i don't have any 32bit system running any more. pygtranslator_0.6-1_amd64.deb 


To be honest, I'm rather using online version, so i don't know if I will continue updating it in the future. But if you find it useful, drop me a line and will fix it, if i can.

pyGtranslator 0.2 (new version)

Here is a new version of pyGtranslator (GUI tool for Google translate) with many fixes and some new features. I think now works as it should.

what's new:
  • utf-8 characters works properly now
  • showing new lines fixed
  • added languages swap button
  • settings are now saved on exit
  • better connection error handling

happy translating and a happy new year :)

pyGtranslator - GUI tool for Google translate

Update:new version pyGtranslator 0.5 avalible
I've been playing with python these days. I made a small GUI tool that brings Google translate to your desktop. Application was easy to code, although I use python occasionally  (wish I could more and learn it better), but want it to make it run on both linux and windows. That took me quite more time. I almost gave up with py2exe and building windows executable, but after hours of googling and trying I figure out that I have to set environmental path to GTK runtime libs. I also made packages for two my favourite linux distros Zenwalk and Ubuntu. pyGtranslator can be improved and also "suggest a better translation" is missing, but that's maybe for late updates, if the need shows. I hope it works for you, otherwise let me know.
