    Tap2Trans Browser, my first (public) app for WP7, has been made available in the Marketplace as of today. Tap2Trans Browser is a web browser with integrated translation capabilities to make reading foreign language websites much easier.

    When browsing pages using the app, you can select a word (you select text the same way you would select text to copy/paste) and then press the "translate" (magnifying glass) button. The translation of the selected text will then be displayed. Also, when no text is selected, you can press the "translate" button and a search box appears where you can type in a word/phrase to look up.

    The app's translation capability is powered by the Bing Translate API, so all languages that the Bing Translate API supports are supported.

    I made the app because I am currently learning Portuguese and wanted an easy way to translate words that I don't know when reading web sites in Portuguese. Switching back and forth between a dictionary app and Internet Explorer was tedious and detracted from reading. I hope that other language learners can take advantage of the app.

    Version 1.2 has been released. The app now stores recent translations for later review (perfect for memorizing vocabulary that you encounter).
