Single purpose API
Sorry, No followers
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.
With the launch of Appy Pie's Location based Directory API, developers can now create Store Finder, Restaurant Locator and City Guide Apps for both Android and iOS.
Systran's API automates projects that can use machine translation. Based on traditional TCP/IP architecture, the API and its software rely on statistical techniques to learn from existing and validated translations. According to Systran's API webpage, the API is used wordwide for everything from website translation to interactive chat, from email solutioms to database translation and desktop uses.
