REST::Google::Translate - OO interface to Google Translate (aka Languages) API

SYNOPSIS ^

        use REST::Google::Translate;

        REST::Google::Translate->http_referer('http://example.com');

        my $res = REST::Google::Translate->new(
                q => 'hello world',
                langpair => 'en|it'
        );

        die "response status failure" if $res->responseStatus != 200;

        my $translated = $res->responseData->translatedText;

DESCRIPTION ^

REST::Google::Translate provides OO interface to Google REST (aka AJAX) API for languages translation.

METHODS ^

__PACKAGE__->http_referer()

Get/set HTTP Referer header.

Note: Google says that you should supply a valid HTTP referer header each time you perform a request to their AJAX API, so new() raises warning unless referer is specified.

__PACKAGE__->new()

q argument should contain a phrase for translation. langpair is used to specify translation languages.

According to Google API documentation the langpair languages should be separated by "|" (pipe) sign. For complete list of language pairs and other arguments please refer to 'Google Translate AJAX API' documentation. E.g.:

        my $res = REST::Google::Translate->new(
                q => 'hello world',
                langpair => 'en|it'
        );

The code above will perform a following HTTP GET request:

        http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/services/language/translate?v=1.0&q=hello%20world&langpair=en%7Cit

Note: You can left protocol version number unspecified while making your searches since v=1.0 is passed by default.

responseData

To access translated text you should use responseData method as follows

        $translated_text = $res->responseData->translatedText
