••• Notice to users upgrading from "Translate Safari Extension" •••
It is highly recommended that user upgrading from the older "Translate Safari Extension" manually backup the legacy settings before upgrading, so the settings can be imported in a future release.
How to backup settings from "Translate Safari Extension":
( 1 ) Go to Safari > Preferences > Extensions > Translate > Click the checkbox labeled "click here to open settings"
( 2 ) At the "Translate Safari Extension" settings page, go to the Advanced section, and click "Export Settings", save the settings in a safe place for future use
"TranslateMe for Safari" is a major rewrite of Side Tree's older "Translate Safari Extension". Future releases will strive to implement more of the legacy feature set, including importing of the settings.

Ratings and Reviews
Why am I stuck with Bing?
I just bought the translate me app for $9.99 and used it to translate a German webpage, but the only translator is Bing, which is the worst of the lot out there. Is there a better translator you can supply?

Sorry to hear you're disappointed by the quality of the translation.
Within the TranslateMe app, on the Settings tab you can change the Service used for Full Page translation.
Snippet translations are sourced from multiple providers and will try to pick the best provider available for a given language pair.
This version doesn't have a settings page. It defaults to Bing Translate you can't change. It didn't pick up the settings from the old version. Needs work!

Thank you for the feedback. There is an ongoing process of rewriting to bring the old features over incrementally. TranslateMe 3.1 brings the ability to select the translation service. After you update, open the TranslateMe app and go to the Settings tab to select the service you prefer.
Unfortunately new "Safari App Extensions" can not directly import settings from the previous "Safari Extensions" system. Instructions are at https://sidetree.com/translateme for exporting the old settings for import into a future TranslateMe release.
Update reduced features while increasing price
Had the free version. Updated to Movaje and needed to install from the mac app store. Paid 7 bucks for the same app. The only differences include the extension appearing in launchpad (yuck) and it uses bing translate instead of google. Hugely disapointed and hope it gets fixed.

Appreciate your feedback Mike. Work is ongoing to rewrite and bring the old features over incrementally. TranslateMe 3.1 bring over the ability to select the translation service. After you update, open the TranslateMe app and go to the Settings tab to select the service you prefer.
As for Launchpad, Apple's approach with the new Safari App Extensions is to deliver them inside a standalone app for the Mac App Store. You may wish to create a folder in Launchpad for your Safari App Extensions.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
