Free Google Translate API for Python. Translates totally free of charge.
aiogoogletrans is a [googletrans](https://github.com/ssut/py-googletrans) fork with asyncio support.
Compatible with Python 3.6+
- Fast and reliable - it uses the same servers that translate.google.com uses
- Auto language detection
- Bulk translations
- Customizable service URL
To install, either use things like pip with the package “aiogoogletrans” or download the package and put the “aiogoogletrans” directory into your python path. Anyway, it is noteworthy that, this just requires two modules: requests and future.
$ pip install aiogoogletrans
If source language is not given, google translate attempts to detect the source language.
>>> from aiogoogletrans import Translator >>> translator = Translator() >>> import asyncio >>> loop = asyncio.get_event_loop() >>> loop.run_until_complete(translator.translate('안녕하세요.')) # <Translated src=ko confidence=1.0 dest=en text=Good evening. pronunciation=Good evening.> >>> loop.run_until_complete(translator.translate('안녕하세요.', dest='ja')) # <Translated src=ko confidence=1.0 dest=ja text=こんにちは。 pronunciation=Kon'nichiwa.> >>> loop.run_until_complete(translator.translate('veritas lux mea', src='la')) # <Translated src=la confidence=1.0 dest=en text=The truth is my light pronunciation=The truth is my light>
Customize service URL
You can use another google translate domain for translation. If multiple URLs are provided it then randomly chooses a domain.
>>> from aiogoogletrans import Translator >>> translator = Translator(service_urls=[ 'translate.google.com', 'translate.google.co.kr', ])
Advanced Usage (Bulk)
Array can be used to translate a batch of strings in a single method call and a single HTTP session. The exact same method shown above work for arrays as well.
>>> translations = await translator.translate(['The quick brown fox', 'jumps over', 'the lazy dog'], dest='ko') >>> for translation in translations: ... print(translation.origin, ' -> ', translation.text) # The quick brown fox -> 빠른 갈색 여우 # jumps over -> 이상 점프 # the lazy dog -> 게으른 개
GoogleTrans as a command line application
$ translate -h usage: translate [-h] [-d DEST] [-s SRC] [-c] text Python Google Translator as a command-line tool positional arguments: text The text you want to translate. optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -d DEST, --dest DEST The destination language you want to translate. (Default: en) -s SRC, --src SRC The source language you want to translate. (Default: auto) -c, --detect $ translate "veritas lux mea" -s la -d en [veritas] veritas lux mea -> [en] The truth is my light [pron.] The truth is my light $ translate -c "안녕하세요." [ko, 1] 안녕하세요.
Note on library usage
- The maximum character limit on a single text is 15k.
- Due to limitations of the web version of google translate, this API does not guarantee that the library would work properly at all times. (so please use this library if you don’t care about stability.)
- If you want to use a stable API, I highly recommend you to use Google’s official translate API.
- If you get HTTP 5xx error or errors like #6, it’s probably because Google has banned your client IP address.
This library follows Semantic Versioning from v2.0.0. Any release versioned 0.x.y is subject to backwards incompatible changes at any time.
