gengo 0.1.6

Official Python library for interfacing with the Gengo API.

Latest Version: 0.1.28

[![Build Status](](

Gengo Python Library (for the [Gengo API](
Translating your tools and products helps people all over the world access them; this is, of course, a
somewhat tricky problem to solve. **[Gengo](** is a service that offers human-translation
(which is often a higher quality than machine translation), and an API to manage sending in work and watching
jobs. This is a Python interface to make using the API simpler.

Installation & Requirements
Installing the library is fairly simple:

Get the repo:

git clone git://

And then install the library:

sudo python install

This will also install the `requests` package. If you're running on a version of Python prior to 2.6, you'll need to install simplejson as well:

sudo pip install simplejson

Tests - Running Them, etc
Gengo has a full suite of unit tests. To run them, export your public and private keys in the shell like so:

export GENGO_PUBKEY='your public key here'
export GENGO_PRIVKEY='your private key here'

Then grab the source, then from the parent directory execute the tests file like so:

python gengo/

Note that some of the tests rely on some deferred actions so there are timeouts (sleep) which you might have to adjust.

To run a single test, such as TestTranslationJobFlowFileUpload:

python -m unittest -v gengo.tests.TestTranslationJobFlowFileUpload

Question, Comments, Complaints, Praise?

Full documentation can be found [here](, but anyone should be able to get a working script with the following:

from gengo import Gengo

gengo = Gengo(

print gengo.getAccountBalance()

All function definitions can be found inside gengo/ as a dictionary: the key of the dictionary entry is the function name, and the parameters
are exactly the same as specified in the [Gengo API docs](
