EasyTranslate is a Ruby binding for the Google translate/detect APIs (Documentation). Its different than other libraries that do the same for a few reasons:
- Only Ruby binding to have support for Bulk Translations
- Only Ruby binding to offer POST support for long translations
- Supports every option in the API, especially API keys and user_ip, which most Ruby bindings skip over.
- Has an extremely clean syntax
# woah, really? EasyTranslate.translate('Hello, world', :to => :spanish) => "Hola, mundo" # what about batch translation? EasyTranslate.translate(['Hello', 'Goodbye'], :to => :spanish) => ["Hola", "Despedida"] # what if you're even crazier? EasyTranslate.translate(['Hello', 'Goodbye'], :to => [:es, :it]) => [['Hola', 'Despedida'], ['Ciao', 'Addio']] # translate something into every language in Google Translate # WITH A SINGLE CALL TO THE API EasyTranslate.translate('hello', :to => EasyTranslate.LANGUAGES.keys)
