A front-end to Google Translate
Traduisons! (French for “Let’s Translate!”) is a front-end for google translate, allowing translation of words and sentences without opening the browser. It is written in python and optionally uses a gtk-based gui.
Traduisons! is focused on being as streamlined and fast as possible. It is designed to be a quick, reference tool, not a large-scale document translator.
Traduisons! itself is not a translator. It works by sending a query string to Google’s web-based translation service and copying the result to the clipboard and screen.
All operations are performed with keyboard shortcuts or specific input characters such as ‘/’ and ‘.’.
Internet access is required to use Traduisons!.
As of version 0.4.1, traduisons is distributed as a standard python package. To install it, unzip and run
python setup.py install
To avoid having to type the full path every time, place a link to traduisons.py in your system path. For example:
- ln -s /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/traduisons/traduisons.py
