Mashups using the same API (10)
If you've ever wanted to programmatically translate text from one language to another directly from code, there's a new web service from Microsoft Research you might want to try. It's the recently announced new Microsoft Translator AJAX API and web widget. The API provides automated translation of web pages and portions of web pages into 12 different languages including Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Polish, and Russian. The Microsoft Research team plans to add more languages over time.
As a translation service powered by human translators and accessed via an API, Gengo has a fairly unique business model—an API-as-product that uses the API to engage a human workforce to carry out sophisticated business processes.
Every once in awhile we stumble across an API that is “watercooler talk” worthy. Often these APIs are revolutionary in the way that they affect how an industry operates, other times they are just really cool and waste a lot of our time. This past weeks addiction was the Yoda Speak API. This API, from the providers of the Yoda-Speak Generator, takes any text (after formatting it properly) and converts it into something you could imagine Yoda saying to Luke. Just think of the mashup possibilities! I am thinking Yoda-Speak + Twitter = awesome.
