Neat! I like that you put both the word and the translation at the
top. Maybe pressing Enter would speak both words, then you could use
it with just the keyboard.
Also, lots of language learning audio programs will use a male voice
for one language and a female voice for another language to help you
differentiate them. At the moment espeak doesn't come with any female
voices, buy you could use the pitch adjustment (espeak -p) instead.

How about "Translate" ?
By the way, I like the icon a lot.
