= Translate

Translate provides an easy to translate word or expression into another, 
using wordreference. This website does'nt provide API yet so I decided 
to create this script which make GET requests and parse results using Hpricot.

Default translation is english to french but it can be overriden by 
providing command line options or config file.
Translate can be used directly in command line or inside an other program.

== Installation

=== Gem installation

Download and install translate with the following:

	gem install wrtranslate

=== Common installation

Checkout the source code on github: git clone git://github.com/fuse/translate.git

	# ruby install.rb

It will ask you where you want to install the translate library and binary in 
your path.

_Warning_: 
Be carefull to *NOT* install translate with the both way.

== Usage

=== From command line
	
	translate world
Will translate world from english to french.

	translate casa -f it -t en
Will translate casa from italian to english.

If you want to know which language can be used :
	translate -l
 
If you want to know all options of translate :
	translate -h

=== From another program
	
You only have to create a new instance or the translation class by giving 
the expression to translate and your options and explicitly call translate.

	translation = Translation.new("maison", { :from => :fr, :to => :en, :more => true })
	translation.translate
 
Results are directly available through translation.items

=== Setup default options

If you don't want to retype options each time you're using translate, just 
create a yaml config file into your home named translate.yml using this syntax :
	translate:
		from: fr
		to: en
		width: 100	
		more: true

Priority is given to command line options, config file options and finally 
default options.
