The Translator component provides an interface for translation services like Google Translate or Bing Translate.
Installation and Usage¶
Install the translator component with Composer
composer require php-translation/translator
require "vendor/autoload.php"; $translator = new Translator(); $translator->addTranslatorService(new GoogleTranslator('api_key')); echo $translator->translate('apple', 'en', 'sv'); // "äpple"
Translator class could be considered a “chain translator” it asks the first
translation service to translate the string. If the translation fails it asks the
second service until a translation is found. If no translation is found a
value will be returned.
Translator class is SOLID so you can easily add your custom translator into
Since most translator services are paid services you probably want to add aggressive caching on the responses. See Configure HTTPlug for more information.
