Crow Translate (online language utility)

#1 Post by Midas » Sat May 11, 2019 7:19 am

Crow Translate (https://crow-translate.github.io/) is a FOSS multi-platform (Windows and Linux) translation program, distributed under a GPL license.

I haven't tested Crow Translate portability yet but I don't expect it to be natively portable given it's Qt based -- expect the usual Trolltech registry traces -- and absence of mention in the homepage. It is, nevertheless, an interesting software that relies on reputable online engines for translation and, as it claims being able to work from the CLI, it adds something that QTranslate does not.

Crow Translate: a simple and lightweight translator that allows to translate and speak text using Google, Yandex and Bing.

Crow Translate 64-bit only latest release (currently v2.1.0) can be downloaded from github.com/crow-translate/crow-translate/releases.

Great post thanks. Does this require an Internet connection? Meaning does any of it function offline, such as text-to-speech?

There is already version 2.7.1 and it seems to be portable.
In the program settings you need to check the box: 'Portable mode'

You can browse on GitHub the excellent post of smaragdus:

By The Way

Added to the database:

I was pleasantly surprised by how well it worked, to be honest. The OCR recognized the region I threw at it 100% after I downloaded the required Tesseract OCR model for English.

Yes, the speech synthesis requires Internet connection. I tested that. It uses one of the web engines (Google, Bing etc.) to perform the text-to-speech.

Surprisingly, I couldn't find any Trolltech registry traces, so it's pretty clean.
