    mako is a Wayland notification daemon from one of the principal Sway/wlroots devs, and is currently provided with openSUSEway. It's pretty minimalist, but so are most things in the Sway/wlroots ecosystem.

    # Details I'm an English speaker living abroad, and while I'm trying to learn the local language it's real hard. I found myself popping open a browser to use deepl quite frequently, or trying to find translator plugins for several different applications. To make this process easier, I wrote a script (bound to a hotkey) which will screenshot a selected area, OCR it, translate it to english, and show a notification with the translated text. It also copies the translated text to the clipboard. Why screenshot + OCR rather than just selecting and copying text? Images and screen-sharing, mostly. I think this is just a really cool way to show how the hard parts have usually been done for you, and all you need to do is put the blocks together. ## Implementation I'm running sway, so the several of the tools are Wayland specific. You could easily swap them out for xorg compatible variants if you like. The script is [here](\_translate). The toolchain is: * [Slurp]( - select an area * [Grim]( - screenshot that area * [Tesseract]( - OCR * [Translate Shell]( - Translation CLI * [Mako]( - Notification window Mako needed a little configuration to show long form text: [category=translation] width=900 height=1200 Edit: added details and links for the tools used.
