Hello Jolla Enthusiasts. As you may know, The Advanced Online Translator is an online translation application, that has support for the most important translating services: Google Translate, Bing Translator, Yandex.Translate and Yandex.Dictionaries.
The latest version available is The Advanced Online Translator 0.3.2, which has been released, coming with the following improvements:
- Moved busy indicator on top of Translate button.
- Shortened icon label to TAO Translator.
- Updated copyright years.
- Localization: Chinese, Dutch and Turkish translations.
- Sailfish OS: enabled landscape and inverted landscape orientations.
- Sailfish OS: added display of source and translated text to the cover.
- Nokia N9, Symbian: Removed notice about Nokia Store freeze.
In this article I will show you how to install The Advanced Online Translator 0.3.2 on Jolla’s Sailfish OS smartphone.
There are two installation methods, one from the GUI and one from the command line interface. I like the terminal method better, because I find it easier to update the apps, this was. And because I am a CLI Linux maniac. : )
Installation method 1: From the GUI.
Since The Advanced Online Translator is available via OpenRepos.net, you can easily download the app and install it directly from the file manager.

Installation method 2: In the geek way, via zypper.
Since Sailfish OS is pure openSUSE, you have to switch to developer mode, install zypper, add the repository and key, update the system and install The Advanced Online Translator. Like this:
# pkcon install zypper
# zypper ar -f http://sailfish.openrepos.net/leppa/personal-main.repo
# rpm --import http://sailfish.openrepos.net/openrepos.key
# zypper refresh
# zypper install harbour-taot
To uninstall The Advanced Online Translator, you have to install zypper (if you haven’t installed it already) and uninstall the app via zypper :
# pkcon install zypper
# zypper remove harbour-taot
For those who don’t know yet, Jolla is a project developed by former Nokia employees. The first Jolla smartphone is running on Sailfish OS, a modified Megoo Linux system, which is Android compatible, uses Wayland as the default display server , uses Nokia N9′s Maliit touchscreen keyboard and comes with interchangeable covers, allowing the users to easily switch them, in order to change the color/model of the phone and comes with impressive hardware specifications.
While apps with native Sailfish OS support can be installed via the Jolla Store and OpenRepos.net, Android apps can be installed via the same Jolla Store, or via F-Droid, Yandex Store, Amazon App Store, Aptoide and 1Mobile Android Market.
