A Translation Tool For Humans

Translate Lewis Carroll: Alice in Wonderland

Through command line arguments, file descriptors or pipes generating translated output that can be piped to a file or displayed on the terminal.

Features

  • Fast! Translate an entire book in less than 5 seconds.
  • Made for Python 3 but still works on Python 2
  • Fast and easy to install, easy to use
  • Supports translation from any language
  • Highly composable interface, the power of Unix pipes and filters.
  • Simple API and documentation

Installation

From PyPI with pip (easy)

$ pip install py-translate

From Source at Github

  • Clone the repository
$ git clone https://github.com/jjangsangy/py-translate.git
  • Install with setup.py
$ python setup.py install

Examples

Hello World from English to Traditional Chinese

Hello, how are you?

Smart Language Detection

Omitting the source language will try to detect it based on the text content

$ translate fr <<< 'I think therefore I am'
Je pense donc je suis

Romanified Transliteration

$ translate --translit en ko <<< 'Want to fight!'
ssaugo sip-eo!

$ translate --translit en zh-TW <<< 'Kidding, we should be friends'
Kāiwánxiào, wǒmen yīnggāi shì péngyǒu

Redirect from File

$ translate zh-TW < 'alice.txt'

阿麗思道:「你不是說你要告訴你的歷史嗎?告訴我你為甚麼恨—那個—那些—C和D,」
她末了兩個字母輕輕兒地說的,怕回來又得罪了牠。

那老鼠對著阿麗思嘆了一口氣道,「唉﹗我的身世說來可真是又長又苦又委屈呀—」

阿麗思聽了,瞧著那老鼠的尾巴說,「你這尾是曲啊﹗可是為甚麼又叫它苦呢﹗」
她就一頭聽著那老鼠說話,一頭在在心上納悶,所以她聽的那老鼠講的「尾曲」
的歷史是差不多像這個樣了的
....
