Include Google Translate
Posted 05 August 2010 - 02:35 PM
Since Google Translate has a rather easy to use REST API, a neat feature could be to both let the client select it's native language (automatically detected from the browser language by default) and let LiveZilla translate forth and back to the prefered language of the operator.
I recently did include Google Translate in a free application of mine, Zeta Resource Editor, which also comes with full source code, to possible serve as an example (C#).

I really like the idea.

It seems to be very fast, easy to program (REST request, Json reponse) and since Google is constantly improving their quality, the translation of the application improves, too.
One user recently suggested to also implement Bing Translations:
I will probably do this, soon, too.
A thing to note is that the call to the translation service should be performed on the client side (i.e. the operator side), not the PHP server side. If too many request come from one IP address, Google may likely block that IP address. If each client (with different IP addresses) make the requests, this is much less likely.

We will give it a try next week and we will also consider to also offer bing as an option.
