I designed a new icon for Traduko's Translate Professional, and helped pick a color scheme for the app.
We wanted to find a simple glyph that would communicate the essence of the app. It can be used to speak translations and therefore it makes sense to use speech bubbles. Having them overlap signifies the translation aspect and make for an interesting shape.

Loving the icon and design. Good work.
Love the idea and the shape is interesting but I'm death tired of that blue (probably better tomorrow or the day after that) ;)
The glyph in itself does the trick wonderfully, and clearly communicates the app's premise. However, and I do hope you don't mind me saying this or hold it against me, I feel the implementation of the icon as a whole leaves a bit to be desired. I perfectly understand (and applaud) if you want to keep it as simple as possible regarding colour and details: that's a good thing. I just feel it's a bit harsh (for the lack of a better word) at the moment, and I'm not quite getting the lighting implied by the shadows/embossing (whichever it is you used). Oh, and I agree with @Mikael Eidenberg about the blue. I hope you're not offended by my criticism. If so, my apologies.
@Mikael Eidenberg The blue was part of the app color scheme already, so it was kept to not completely brake rom the past. I know a lot of icons use it, but I like it still.
@Max Steenbergen Given this is a larger size compared to the phone, that could make it look more harsh. The idea was to keep it bold and simple, think Reeder.
fwiw not knowing anything about this app or this project, at first glance while I was flicking through dribbble, I assumed it was for a Facebook chat client.
