Polyglot

Build Status

Swift wrapper around the Microsoft Translator API. By default, it translates to English from whatever language is detected.

Installation

The easiest way to get started is to use CocoaPods. Just add the following line to your Podfile:

pod 'Polyglot', '~> 0.5'

Otherwise, just include the contents of the Polyglot directory manually to your project.

Basic Usage

Create a new Polyglot instance.

let translator = Polyglot(clientId: "YOUR_CLIENT_ID", clientSecret: "YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET")

You can optionally specify to & from language codes.

translator.fromLanguage = Language.Dutch // It will automatically detect the language if you don't set this.
translator.toLanguage = Language.English // English. This is the default.

Start translating.

let dutch = "Ik weet het niet."
translator.translate(dutch) { translation in
    print("\"\(dutch)\" means \"\(translation)\"")
}

Check out the sample project for a quick demo.

Setting up an account for Microsoft Translator

  1. Subscribe to the Microsoft Translator service here. You’ll probably need to set up a new account first. Good luck. :trollface:
  2. Create a new application here. This is where you will be given a client ID and client secret (which you will need for using Polyglot).
