==============================================
   Microsoft Translator script for Asterisk
==============================================

This script makes use of Microsoft Translator to translate
text strings and return them as channel variables.

------------
Requirements
------------
Perl         The Perl Programming Language
perl-libwww  The World-Wide Web library for Perl
perl-Crypt-SSLeay or perl-IO-Socket-SSL for use of SSL/TLS encryption
Internet access in order to contact MS and get the language data.

To use this script you have to subscribe to the Microsoft Translator API on Azure Marketplace:

https://datamarket.azure.com/developer/applications/

------------
Installation
------------
To install copy mstrasnlate.agi to your agi-bin directory.
Usually this is /var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin/
To make sure check your /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf file

-----
Usage
-----
agi(mstranslate.agi,"text",[target language],[source language]):
 The text string will be send to MS Translator for translation to target language.
 The translated text will be stored as a channel variable named 'mstranslation'.
 The setting of source language is optional, if not set the tranlator engine
 will try to auto detect it.
 If both target language and source language are omitted the script performs language
 detection on the given text string and returns the two-character language code
 as the value of the channel variable 'mslang'

--------
