Hi,
The translation is not working.
thanks in advance,

In [1]: from textblob import TextBlob

In [2]: en_blob = TextBlob(u'Simple is better than complex.')

In [3]: en_blob.translate(to='es')

The problem is that this API has changed it's output format. See http://stackoverflow.com/questions/35420602/python-textblob-not-translating/35421116#35421116.

Use this:
Step (1) pip install goslate

Step (2)
import goslate

text = "Hello World"

gs = goslate.Goslate()
translatedText = gs.translate(text,'hi')

print(translatedText)

@sanjaydeo96

can you please tell me how to apply this into a pandas dataframe ?
I have a column df['Text'] which contain text from differen languages and I want to translate it into an new column called df['Text transalted']

You can do something like this:

from textblob import TextBlob

for index, row in df.iterrows():
    zh_blob = df.iloc[index]['Text']
    translation = TextBlob(zh_blob)
    en_blob = translation.translate(from_lang='zh', to='en')
    df.at[index, str('Text translated')] = str(en_blob )
df.head()

it gave me error :

NotTranslated: Translation API returned the input string unchanged.

any comment on how to fix it ?!
and in your code :
en_blob = translation.translate(from_lang='zh', to='en')
how to make it translate from any language to en not only from zh ?
again, thanks for your answer

Basically, you only need to remove from_lang='zh', and TextBlob will attempt to detect the language
en_blob = translation.translate(to='en')

You can see more information here: https://textblob.readthedocs.io/en/dev/quickstart.html#translation-and-language-detection

try:

except:
print ("Same translation so skipping")
