Project description


translatify is a fun command line tool for translating text through different languages using Google Translate, usually for some amusing results.


translatify can be installed from PyPI using pip:

Autodetect the language of the original text and run it through all languages on Google Translate:

$ translatify "Google Translate is not always accurate"
[English -> Afrikaans]
Google Translate is nie altyd akkuraat nie
[Afrikaans -> Albanian]
Google Translate nuk është gjithmonë i saktë


[Yiddish -> Yoruba]

[English -> Danish]
Google Translate er ikke altid korrekt
[Danish -> Chinese (Simplified)]
[Chinese (Simplified) -> German]
Google-Übersetzung ist nicht immer richtig
[German -> English]

You can specify all as a target language to include all the languages in alphabetical order:

$ translatify -t de,all,de,en "Google Translate is not always accurate"
[English -> German]
Google Translate ist nicht immer richtig
[German -> Afrikaans]
