Looking for free alternatives to google translation APIs.
Google translation service is great but it’s a paid service. Today I am looking for free alternatives.
Yandex.ru. Easy to integrate, functional. However this service supports limited set of languages and some languages don’t work and for some languages I encountered exceptions on translating some words, not very complex words.
Extended info on google translate
echo GoogleTranslate::staticTranslate("Hello again", "en", "ka");
Found a post on stackoverflow recommending to look into these, no info if they are free or functional.
Alternatives to Google Translate API:
Microsoft Translator APIs this guy is talking about it with a bit of incomplete example: http://web.archive.org/web/20110720142541/http://basharkokash.com/post/2010/04/19/Bin g-Translator-for-developers.aspx
MyGengo – http://gengo.com/pricing-languages/ This is super expensive. priced per word, no free nothing.
http://www.translatorbox.com/google-text-translator-alternative-for-wordpress/ – nonsense. exposes a box for use in web apps.
You can find the API docs here: http://mymemory.translated.net/doc/spec.php Free use is limited to 100 requests/day.
Summary: no good. will have to pay google translation or pre-build my cache.
