youdaotranslate forfree

Project description


Youdao translate for free -- local cache and throttling (averag 1.5 calls/s, first 1000 calls exempted). Let's hope it lasts.


Maximum of 50 characters per query -- you'll have to do some processing if you want to handle longer text.


pip install youdao-tr-free


  • Install (pip or whatever) necessary requirements, e.g. pip install requests_cache`` or pip install -r requirements.txt```
  • Drop the file in any folder in your PYTHONPATH (check with import sys; print(sys.path)
  • or clone the repo (e.g., git clone or download and unzip) and change to the youdao-tr-free folder and do a python develop


from youdao_tr import youdao_tr
print(youdao_tr('hello world'))  # ->'你好,世界'
print(youdao_tr('hello world', to_lang='de'))  # ->'Hallo Welt'
print(youdao_tr('hello world', to_lang='fr'))  # ->'Bonjour le monde'
print(youdao_tr('hello world', to_lang='ja'))  # ->'こんにちは世界'

Consult the official website for language pairs supported.
