@garry
If there isn't a language in the list I linked, I think Google Translate does not support this language.

Re: Using Google Translate to automate text translation

Hi all,

I adapted the script to my needs. I made the following changes based on Garrys version:
  • Auto-translate to native language or to second language if selected text is in native language already
  • Replace selected text with translation and restore Clipboard
  • Show a tooltip menu which let you choose between all alternative translations for a single word and replace selected text (or copy it to clipboard if Shift key is pressed)

Code: Select all

Re: Using Google Translate to automate text translation

Hey very nice CyberKlabauter!

I'm seeing several horizontal lines... Not sure if that's by design(?)
Image

Hey, is it possible to move the 'language picker drop-list' and the 'read button' to be on this menu?

It's interesting to note that this (and of course Garry's that this is based on, and Teadrinker's main code) have good potential as a language-learning tool.

=> You could create a submenu to choose/change the language and then reload the menu. But I think it wouldn't an intuitive and fast way. I would recommend to create a second ot third shortcut with your third and fourth language.

Note every language is automatically translated to your native langaguage (no action needed). Only in case you want to translate from your native language to third and fourth langugage you need the menu.

By the way: Many thanks to Teadrinker, Garry', Osprey, rommmcek and all others who supported something. Incredible helpful tool!

@rommmcek
Are your improvements incooperated in teatrinkers version in the first post. It is a bit hard to compare the changes of the different versions.

Your script is amazing, but there are two issues:

(1) There are some weird characters appearing, sometimes.
(2) There's no way to interact with the translation--I'm going to try to fix this, myself, potentially.... Basically, that's why I'm looking at the script.
(3) This script isn't well-enough known. Hahahaha. It's super amazing and nice. I really appreciate it. You know, I spend so much of my time trying to figure out how to read characters, and I don't want to take the malware that comes with other softwares that do this. Thank you so much.

If you'd like to help me, I might bump TeaDrinker on this, also. Way back in 2014 or so, he was trying to simply output translations into a messagebox. I'd like to interact with tidy examples of how to separate different components of the translation: direct translation, phonetic version, senses, examples...

The reason I'm trying to do this is basically for personal learning and to better interact with some developers on a Fiction-writing project.

Thee must be some kind of misunderstanding. The script in your link does not contain any MsgBox.
Run the script, click with the left mouse button at the start of the desired text to translate and hold the button, drag the mouse to the end of the desired text to translate and release the left mouse button. The translation is displayed in the ToolTip. Then press Esc to delete the ToolTip. Still works for me, however script is now a bit obsolete and you should edit it at least at this line.

I was just looking at the various submissions to try to find a way to get translations to a variable/msgbox/clipboard and when I ran the code I got this: 今日の天気はとても良いです

@rommmcek
I've also noticed that this will automagically convert highlighted English to Japanese. I can't find how this works by reading your script. It just says "auto" to "en", but it doesn't say "en" to "jp" anywhere!

I'd like to be able to go from English to Chinese, Russian, Spanish, or Japanese, depending on what work I'm doing. Can you please tell me what part of the code I need to change? I'm hoping that if I can get figure out how to switch target languages, somehow, I'll be able to create a pop-up HUD or a hotkey that will allow the user to rapidly swap languages without closing the script and re-starting it.

@CyberKlabauter: I wouldn't call it improvements. teadrinker's function afaik captures all the GoogleTranlsate data. He made just an example how to use it and I made my own. If you have any ideas start your own example and if needed I'm sure you'll get help...

... to get translations to a variable/msgbox/clipboard and when I ran the code I got this: 今日の天気はとても良いです

in notepad save your script > as ... UTF-8 with BOM

( Note : I used teadrinker's script , just added a GUI or a HotKey )

short example save to clipboard , show in msgbox the result : ( mark text and use hotkey alt+h )
example , see the last script here :
https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=76&t=71993

or see at first page , a GUI example here , to select language , contains also google translator list : https://cloud.google.com/translate/docs/languages
https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=63835

or :

Code: Select all

run,https://translate.google.com/?sl=auto&tl=zh-TW&text=Girl&op=translate

I see what you've done, and I think it's fantastic. Even though it significantly diverges from what I am trying to accomplish, a lot of what is done is useful towards it.

What I primarily was concerned about involves this line:

Code: Select all

r:= GoogleTranslate(clipboard,, ja)
. I changed ja to myLang. I added hotkeys at the top of the file to change the language.

Code: Select all

^+`::MsgBox, 0, , Press Ctrl+1 for Japanese-English. Press Ctrl+1 for Chinese-English.  Press Ctrl+3 for Russian-English.  More languages coming soon.`nHighlight text and wait patiently to see a translation.  Press Esc to close the translation.  `nPress Ctrl+0 to suspend the script.  More features coming soon!, 7
^0::suspend
^1::myLang := "ja"
^2::myLang := "zh-CN"
^3::myLang := "ru"
Along with a friend, we are working to re-create the GUI you made in your post. Probably we'll draw from it a lot. I love the tooltip option, honestly. I feel like it is a good idea to have the ability to make it so that a key (such as F1) causes a translation to occur because I don't want to flood Google Translate. Until I can figure out how to make translations happen less frequently, I'll use the script very sparingly.

Kind of out-of-character, but I think it may have caused some 'are you a robot' stuff to occur more often when I used it a lot. Another good reason to limit attempts, besides obviously not wanting to be totally banned by Google Translate, or see the code somehow break.

Anyway, I'd love to continue to correspond and let you know if I make more updates towards my slightly tweaked version.

Talk to you soon. Thanks for responding! :happybday:

Global Hotkeys:
F1, F5: Copy marked text and traslate it
- if there is no marked text attempts to auto-mark a word and then copy it - should work I text editors.
- if there is no marked text and IE active in youtube and subtitles visible attempts to capture them (working as of jan 26 2021)
- if there is no marked text and mpc-hc active and srt subtitles on attempts to capture them (if present in the specified path)
F2: Show Last Gui

Context sensitive Hotkeys (Main Gui Active):
Esc: Stop Google speech if it is running otherwise Hide Gui (Click on Minimize Gui Hides it too - not Minimize)
!Left and XButton1: History Back
!Right and XButton2: History Forward
^Del and !x: Delete History Item (Click on Close Gui Deletes History item too - not Close)
!Up and !Down: Expand/Shrink History capacity
F2: Show Select Language Gui
F3: Replay last speech
F4: Pause/Unpause current speech
F5: Stop the current speech
F9:: Start Speech Input
F10: Start Speech Output
^!#Esc: ExitApp

Context sensitive Hotkeys (Select Language Gui Active):
^Enter: Close Select Language Gui and set chosen settings (Click on Close Gui does the same - not just Close Gui)
Esc:: Close Select Language Gui w/o changing lang. settings

P.s.: As ever: Big thanks to teadrinker!

Oh wow, I only just now tried out Rommmcek's Google Translate json_History 2.56.ahk. It is indeed very cool! Kudos.

[...] The only problem is, the collected translation is NOT same as the translation provided by the Google translate webpage (https://translate.google.com/#view=home&op=translate&sl=en&tl=bn&text=Hello%20world) which is of much higher quality than the translation collected by this script. Is there any way to modify this script so that it collects the same translation provided by the Google translate webpage?
@teadrinker - I've used your script a minute ago (and now it looks that I've got blocked :shh:) so, time to ask ...
Has your updated script taken the before mentioned condition already into account? I thought about to translate the transcription of YouTube videos so people from abroad will have a chance to better follow its (German) speaker. Higher translation quality would shrink the time of necessarry corrections.

Stupid question of the day - can this script be used/reconfigured for other online translation services (bing/deepL/...) as well? :silent:
Feature request: split input in (to be specified) chunks allowing to pass Googles' 5K-char per session limit.

Nope, each service has its unique algorithm for receiving and sending data.

Yeah, my script retuns exactly the same as the Google Translate webpage.
