What's new in this version

Incremented to 1.5. Now all file types are supported, not just HTML and Java. Now the lists are in their own new toolbar, called Translate, instead of in the Edit toolbar. Added "to" between the two lists. Added display text for the Plugin Manager.

Verifications for NetBeans versions

Plugin is not subject to any verification



  1. Install the two modules.
  2. Look in the Translate toolbar (View > Toolbars > Translate, if it is closed) where you should see two lists of languages.
  3. Choose two languages, first is "from", second is "to".
  4. Open any kind of file.
  5. Select text.
  6. Right-click and choose Translate.
  7. Text changes from "from" language to "to" language.
  8. If a problem occurs, message is printed in status bar. For example, Google translation service doesn't support all from/to combinations.

re: Unicode is not working in my IDE Editor

Thanks Mr. Geertjan for your support, i believe too it may be a problem in the RC2 release.

re: Unicode is not working in my IDE Editor

I've looked at it some more. Sometimes the Arabic text looks a bit faded, somehow. I don't know why this is the case. I can't reproduce this consistently. If you continue getting this problem, please file an issue in Issuezilla. Thanks!

re: Unicode is not working in my IDE Editor

I'm not sure why you are copying and pasting. You're supposed to select some text. Then right-click and choose Translate. The from/to languages determine from which to which language the text will be translated. Copying and pasting has nothing to do with this module.

Strange. It should be working. It works for me, no problem, look here for an example that shows Arabic:
