Great Plugin! I like how you can set the text color of the translated text.. is there any method or any plans to change the original text color? I ask this for the sake of easier readability - being able to have black text for the translation while the original language is grey or a faded color would help me read the content easier without being tripped up.

how to resume fixing automatic translation mistakes ?

Hello

When working on a large book, and manually fixing the automatic translation mistakes, it clearly appears that this is not possible in a single session.

So, is it possible, ( and how ?) to interrupt the correcting job, then resume it for example the next day, while retaining the modifications made manually the day before and to carry on from last page done...

Thanks a lot

Thanks for your suggestion. The plugin just added the support for two columns reading for original and translation content. You can find this new feature in latest version v2.3.1.

It would be great to have a border between the original text and the translated text (like a rectangular frame around the translated text). Alternatively, splitting the book page into two sides (left for the original text and right for the translated text) with a dividing line would be helpful. Another suggestion is to provide a quick way to switch between the original and translated text. Once again, thanks to the developers of this plugin, and have a great day, everyone!

An example of a bilingual book has a border in the middle separating the original paragraph from the translated paragraph:



An example of borders is that if we use the method of surrounding translated paragraphs with rectangles, we can customize the borders of those shapes to look beautiful and easily distinguishable from the original paragraph. Translated paragraphs will be added to one of those rectangles depending on your preference:

The translate engine I selected is DeepL (Free) and the engine API error kinda confuses me

@Gil_Bates

If you enabled the cache during translation (default as enabled), all translation data including manual modifications will be saved in cache files. This will make sure no previous work get lost after reopen the plugin.

The cache setting locates at Setting -> General -> Cache. You can also change the path of the cache files in Cache Manager (via the Manage link aside) in case data get cleared from the default path by system.

Thanks for all your concern. We just released the new version v2.3.2. It now supports two columns (left/right) reading for original and translation content, and you can also customize the original context color now. For more new features, please find release note on GitHub.

Wow. Just... wow!

It looks incredibly good and in sync as the book gets scrolled through. I've set a justified alignment custom CSS in the ebook viewer, just to see how it looked - probably not a good idea when text is in german, yet it works really fine:

The options to append target language to title metadata and target language code to language field are also awesome additions! I remember I had to add some 'translated' tags manually when I first used the plugin. By the way I noticed that the author name gets duplicated for some reason:

Also, this version seems unbelievably faster.

@Comfy.n

I'm glad that the new version gives you a better experience!

The issue of duplicated author names is caused by the metadata translation feature. I have fixed the issue you pointed out by not applying translations if they are the same as the original text.

You can install the Rolling Release version for this fix or wait for the next release version.

Please feel free to share any feedback with me if you encounter any issues.
