What Does the App Solve?

Context

Currently, I live in the country whose language I only know the basics.

Problem

Most of the things are in local language. So, it is necessary to adapt quickly by searching for the meanings of the words or the sentences in various applications (WEB based, desktop based).

Solution to the Problem

Desktop application that is able to translate the content of web pages and dekstop-based applications in the app by clicking on the desired button.

Turn On Logs

In this project gflags library isn't used. That is why environment variable GLOG_logtostderr has to be set in order to see logs.

GLOG_logtostderr=1 ./instant_translator

Translate by Pressing the Keyboard

Currently, it's made that when clipboard (copy or cut operation) is changed then the app translates the text.
