I'm looking for:
I'm searching for Android app that allows user to read texts in foreign language. The main feature I look for is ability to click on word / sentence and get translation for this in my main language. Translation have to be prepared and validated (not auto-translation by Google or similar software).
Why it would be useful:
I would like to learn foreing language (German). I think that reading (and watching) in new language is a great way to learn new words and sentences that are often used. But at the beginning there is problem that you don't know many words and you have to stop very often to check unknown words in some other source (dictionary/translator). It can be exhausting and limit your joy of reading. Using app that I'm looking for would allow you to check word or sentence in context without need of losing focus on text.
I would appreciate following features (not required):
- support for English, German and maybe Polish (but other languages would be great),
- classic texts (maybe Doyle, Verne, Orwell, Geothe), I would prefer some more known novels than texts prepared for this app. It could be novels, short stories, tales.
- ability to see translation for word and sentence (e.g. longer press would show sentence translation, tap would show world translation).
If something like ths doesn't exist on Android, maybe some PC, Web or iOS version is available?
Budget: I'm looking for Google Play app (or similar source), not custom solution. I'll be interested in paying per resource (book / text) or subscription (preferably per resource). I suspect that prices should be accessible to consumer (similar to price of book in bookstore or subscription similar to other media services - like VODs).
