Update to Translator app for BlackBerry 10 to include geolocated Wikipedia articles

By Simon Sage on 7 Oct 2013 05:30 pm EDT

An incoming update to MMMOOO's Translator app will include quick reference to geolocated Wikipedia articles thanks to some fresh BlackBerry Maps integration. The idea here is that folks using a translator are already traveling somewhere foreign, so more information about nearby spots is clearly useful. 

As always, Translator also lets you translate text between 50 languages with one of four engines, and even using audio input and speech output if you like. There are some especially sweet features like traveler mode, which will automatically understand and read out loud the other language, and share framework invocation, so you can easily pull in content from elsewhere on your device to translate. 

Hit up BlackBerry World to get Translator now, and keep an eye out for the location update in the next two weeks.

Not sure that this update should be taking up any space on crackberry..

For me translator can't translate using bing and dictionary tabs.
The message says that license has expired. Waiting for them to renew the licenses.

The OCR is expensive and you have to pay before the successful translation... often you pay credits and he can't translate anything :(

The support is great and fast, but I hope Google translate OCR feature will run soon without network error.

this is interesting. Could be merged with the ARKick app.

Decent translator and I agree....OCR is crazy expensive. if it were cheaper I'd buy it.

Why not just use Navita Translator? :/ it works amazing and have used it since BBOS 5... completely free and at one point was the number one translation app out there!
