Mobile Phone Online Translator

Support for 12 languages, near 30 directions of translation of not only individual words, but also sentences - do you think it is possible to fit all this into a small Java midlet, only 24 Kbytes in size? It turns out, of course.

The secret of "preparing" such a polyglot program is ridiculously simple: it is enough to put the text translation process on the shoulders of a specialized Internet server and thereby achieve maximum efficiency with a small midlet size. It is in this way that the Translator + cellular translator also works , also known as Jamba, also known as MsPolyglot! Translator

Downloading the application to your phone is allowed when the computer is supported (using a suitable USB cable, infrared or Bluetooth) or through the wap-site wap.shapeservices.com. I think that for regular readers of our mobile column "RTFM", this procedure will not cause any special difficulties. Take a look how pretty Madame meets us when loading the midlet. Apparently, this is the very Mrs. Polyglot, who acts as a virtual translator in our device ...

Through the use of a GPRS connection to the server, MsPolyglot knows Russian, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish and Chinese. Able to translate texts in one of the 30 available directions, in addition to everything - free of charge.

We summarize. Developers from the company SHAPE Services, abandoning the idea of ​​storing dictionaries in the phone’s memory, were able to create a truly useful application, the use of which will find not only beginner polyglots, but also true connoisseurs of foreign languages. We use, test, admire.
