PDF Reader Sumatra 3.4: new command palette and support for translations​

Sumatra 3.4 adds a number of new features and improvements to the PDF reader. Users find the new text translate feature under Menu > Selection. The initial version supports Google Translate and DeepL, but it is possible to add custom translation services to the application.

All it takes is to select text, and then one of the available translate options. Sumatra opens the translated text on the service's website.

I tried it and liked how fast it is but for some reason it can't print any PDF I open and I need physical copies of a PDF file sometimes. I searched their forums and the web but couldn't find anything about it so I returned to Foxit.

Strange. I had a chance to check it out yesterday. I printed some pdfs from this program and everything was ok. 👌
