A Must for anyone who even occasionally uses Google Translate

Ok, I’m the first reviewer, and have no relation to the developers — just an ordinary user of Google translate — who was tired of going to a tab on my browser and then back and forth to either whatsapp or email with a copied translation. Tried the trial version then bought it right away -- and give it 5 stars cause it’s everything one needs to end the switching screens (it can either hover over everything or just be in the corner). This is an excellent app that makes Google Translate an even more magical experience, particularly if you’re living in a foreign land, not fluent in the language, yet need to communicate clearly.

A great way to use Google Translate

Convenience says it all: a great way to get Google Translate off-line and with a lot of bells and whistles as well. The developer is very, very reactive to any comments or suggestions and that is the main reason I’m sure this program is bound to get better and better !

Can’t wait to see what further improvements will come from this add-on program to the basic Google Translate application itself. Kudos to the programmer of Myna: keep up the great work.

add option to put window in background

I love this app and use it daily to study French. It’s easy to use, and provides very useful info.

I can’t get the auto-hide window to work, and wonder if you can offer an option where the window is not always on top of others? Or offer a choice of font sizes to reduce the overall window size?

Thanks so much for a wonderful study aid.
