Mate + PopClip
Two powerful productivity apps team up. Mate works with PopClip, a beautiful little pane that pops up when you select text on Mac.
When I'm translating from english to russian, there is a russian translitiration. What for do I need it? It should be english phonetic translitiration. And it shows the opposite. Completely useless feature :(
Other stuff is pretty good!
Of all the tools I have used for translation the quality of Mate is unbeatable, much better than other tools available. In most cases the translations can be used practically without retouching. Great help, well worth it.
