Yet another jailbreak widget for iOS 5 has surfaced. This time, Google Translate functionality can now be added to the Notification Center. Developed by the same person that made QuickComposer, weeTranslate lets you translate a word or phrase through Google Translate – all from the Notification Center.

For those of us that interact with multiple languages on a daily basis, this widget could prove invaluable.

weeTranslate features:

  • Translates to a 5-languages (English, Italian, Spanish, German, French).
  • Uses the translation engine in the world’s most famous (Google Translate).
  • Free, fast, convenient, low-bandwidth data.

More language support would be nice, but weeTranslate is still a great, first version widget for iOS 5 Beta 1. A big thanks to Simone and the other jailbreak devs that have been cranking these widgets out so early in the iOS 5 testing process.

To install weeTranslate on your jailbroken device running the iOS 5 developer beta, you need this repo in Cydia: http://russello.me/repo/

What do you think of weeTranslate? Useful for you?

    the tweak itself is a pretty great idea. But from the Video, it seems very painful to switch the language.
