Translate Bubble Android Status

Translate Bubble for Android

Translate Bubble is an application that facilitates the translation of text on your cell phone. You only has to copy any text to clipboard and immediately you will see a bubble appear on your screen with your translation. You don't even need to to leave your current application.

Scala on Android

This application is written entirely in Scala on Android. We are excited to make the application open source and share the code with you. We have used the macroid library extensively in this project. In addition we have contributed our own Macroid extenions to this application, that can be found here: macroid-extras.


You can compile this project and contribute improvements. To compile the project:

  • Download Activator and install it
  • Configure the Android SDK on your computer
  • Clone this GitHub project to your computer
  • From project root directory run:
$ ./activator
  • Connect your phone and execute:

You can use your favorite IDE. At 47 Degrees we use IntelliJ with the Scala plugin. If you want to run this project from IntelliJ you only need to import the project.


You can download Translate Bubble from Google Play. If you enjoy the application, please take a moment and rate it in the Google Play store :-)


You can contribute to this application and we will do our best to upload your changes to Google Play. We are also in need of people to contribute additional translations of the application. If you have the desire to translate the application and unsure how to go about it, please email us at
