Opera 12.14, Instant-Dictionary extension stopped working today.

  • Greetings everyone,

    Does anyone else have the problem with Instant-Dictionary extension for Opera 12, created by DoTheEvo? It was working perfectly a couple of days ago and I still have it installed, but any configuration changes do not help at all.

    It also became unavailable at its official link for some reason:
    I use it in everyday interactions with the browser, so it is very important for me to have this extension working.

    The only place where I can still find it at is Google extension archive:

    If someone knows how to fix it, please let me know in this thread.

    Are there any other extensions that allow instant translation from English to various languages by just selecting the word/phrase with the mouse? The important note is that I need to be able to install it in opera 12.14 (opera presto).

  • The extension has gone almost 2 years without an update and the creator has dropped off the face of the earth. Its likely that whatever backend was being used to perform the translations has simply failed or been turned off.
