From what language to what language are you looking to translate?

Cheers,

I like coding too... I never stop kind of doing sh (for cross platform)
( I usually try to avoid bash, and prefer sh for wider compatibility)

Well before I decide to actually do it, I dug around a bit, and came across this - https://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/twandgtw/
What do you think of that?

I found this on the Arch forums; it basically sends off $1 to Google Translate, GT translates the phrase/word/whatever (from the language you specify as $2; autodetect otherwise), then it snips out the actual translated word(s) from the wget'd page.

Code:
#!/bin/bash
wget -qO- "http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/services/language/translate?v=1.0&q=$1&langpair=$2|${3:-en}" | sed 's/.*"translatedText":"\([^"]*\)".*}/\1\n/';
The post I got it from

Hope this helps.

I think I read that Google is planning on removing the Google Translate API.

Hmmm... I'm going to check out how many languages google supports. Maybe I can add some to your code?

Err…how exactly do you mean? Do you mean somehow adding language support on the server end, or do you just mean giving some hints as to what languages are available (and maybe forcibly restricting the options to those languages)?

Anyway, as to your "one-up": you can just pipe the output of my blog script to espeak and have it speak out the translation.

Actually, I thought of something else dude....
Code:
#!/bin/bash
if [ "$1" = "--languages" ]; then
        echo ""
        echo "Supported languages:"
        echo ""
        echo "English - EN              Afrikaans - AF"
        echo "Albanian - SQ             Arabic - AR"
        echo "Armenian - HY             Azerbaijani - AZ"
        echo "Basque - EU               Belarusian - BE"

        echo "Croatian - HR             Czech - CS"
        echo "Danish - DA               Dutch - NL"
        echo "Estonian - ET             Filipino - FIL (NOT TESTED)"

        echo "Slovenian - SL            Spanish - ES"

        echo "Type $0 --languages for a list of supported languages."
        exit
