.. contents:: Table of Contents :depth: 3

| |

========== Motivation

I needed to translate a text using python. It was hard to find a simple way to do it. There are other libraries that can be used for this task, but most of them are buggy, not free, limited, not supported anymore or complex to use.

Therefore, I decided to build this simple tool. It is 100% free, unlimited, easy to use and provide support for all languages.

Basically, my goal was to integrate support for multiple famous translators in this tool.

====================== When you should use it

  • If you want to translate text using python
  • If you want to translate from a file
  • If you want to get translations from many sources and not only one
  • If you want to automate translations

============= Installation

Install the stable release:

.. code-block:: console

$ pip install -U deep_translator

take a look at the docs if you want to install from source.

============ Quick Start

.. code-block:: python

from deep_translator import GoogleTranslator
translated = GoogleTranslator(source='auto', target='de').translate("keep it up, you are awesome")  # output -> Weiter so, du bist großartig

or using proxies:

.. code-block:: python

from deep_translator import GoogleTranslator

proxies_example = {
    "https": "34.195.196.27:8080",
    "http": "34.195.196.27:8080"
}
translated = GoogleTranslator(source='auto', target='de', proxies=proxies_example).translate("keep it up, you are awesome")  # output -> Weiter so, du bist großartig

or even directly from terminal:

.. code-block:: console

$ deep_translator -trans "google" -src "en" -tg "de" -txt "keep it up, you are awesome"

===== Usage

In this section, demos on how to use all different integrated translators in this tool are provided.

.. note::

You can always pass the languages by the name or by abbreviation.

*Example*: If you want to use english as a source or target language, you can pass **english** or **en** as an argument

Imports

.. code-block:: python

from deep_translator import (GoogleTranslator,
                             MicrosoftTranslator,
                             PonsTranslator,
                             LingueeTranslator,
                             MyMemoryTranslator,
                             YandexTranslator,
                             PapagoTranslator,
                             DeepL,
                             QCRI,
                             single_detection,
                             batch_detection)

Check Supported Languages

.. note::

You can check the supported languages of each translator by calling the
get_supported_languages function as a static method.

.. code-block:: python

# default return type is a list
langs_list = GoogleTranslator.get_supported_languages()  # output: [arabic, french, english etc...]

# alternatively, you can the dictionary containing languages mapped to their abbreviation
langs_dict = GoogleTranslator.get_supported_languages(as_dict=True)  # output: {arabic: ar, french: fr, english:en etc...}

Language Detection

.. note::

You can also detect language automatically. Notice that this package is free and my goal is to keep it free.
Therefore, you will need to get your own api_key if you want to use the language detection function.
I figured out you can get one for free here: https://detectlanguage.com/documentation
  • Single Text Detection

.. code-block:: python

lang = single_detection('bonjour la vie', api_key='your_api_key')
print(lang) # output: fr
  • Batch Detection

.. code-block:: python

lang = batch_detection(['bonjour la vie', 'hello world'], api_key='your_api_key')
print(lang) # output: [fr, en]

Google Translate

.. code-block:: python

text = 'happy coding'
  • You can use automatic language detection to detect the source language:

.. code-block:: python

translated = GoogleTranslator(source='auto', target='de').translate(text=text)
  • You can pass languages by name or by abbreviation:

.. code-block:: python

translated = GoogleTranslator(source='auto', target='german').translate(text=text)

# Alternatively, you can pass languages by their abbreviation:
translated = GoogleTranslator(source='en', target='de').translate(text=text)
  • Translate batch of texts

.. code-block:: python

texts = ["hallo welt", "guten morgen"]

# the translate_sentences function is deprecated, use the translate_batch function instead
translated = GoogleTranslator('de', 'en').translate_batch(texts)
  • Translate from a file:

.. code-block:: python

translated = GoogleTranslator(source='auto', target='german').translate_file('path/to/file')

Mymemory Translator

.. note::

As in google translate, you can use the automatic language detection with mymemory by using "auto" as an
argument for the source language. However, this feature in the mymemory translator is not so powerful as
in google translate.
  • Simple translation

.. code-block:: python

text = 'Keep it up. You are awesome'

translated = MyMemoryTranslator(source='auto', target='french').translate(text)
  • Translate batch of texts

.. code-block:: python

texts = ["hallo welt", "guten morgen"]

# the translate_sentences function is deprecated, use the translate_batch function instead
translated = MyMemoryTranslator('de', 'en').translate_batch(texts)
  • Translate from file

.. code-block:: python

path = "your_file.txt"

translated = MyMemoryTranslator(source='en', target='fr').translate_file(path)

DeepL Translator

.. note::

In order to use the DeepL translator, you need to generate an api key. Deepl offers a Pro and a free API.
deep-translator supports both Pro and free APIs. Just check the examples below.
Visit https://www.deepl.com/en/docs-api/ for more information on how to generate your Deepl api key
  • Simple translation

.. code-block:: python

text = 'Keep it up. You are awesome'

translated = DeepL(api_key="your_api_key", source="en", target="en", use_free_api=True).translate(text)

.. note:: deep-translator uses free deepl api by default. If you have the pro version then simply set the use_free_api to false.

  • Translate batch of texts

.. code-block:: python

texts = ["hallo welt", "guten morgen"]

# the translate_sentences function is deprecated, use the translate_batch function instead
translated = DeepL("your_api_key").translate_batch(texts)

QCRI Translator

.. note::

In order to use the QCRI translator, you need to generate a free api key. Visit https://mt.qcri.org/api/
for more information
  • Check languages

.. code-block:: python

# as a property
print("language pairs: ", QCRI("your_api_key").languages)
  • Check domains

.. code-block:: python

# as a property
print("domains: ", QCRI("your_api_key").domains)
  • Text translation

.. code-block:: python

text = 'Education is great'

translated = QCRI("your_api_key").translate(source='en', target='ar', domain="news", text=text)
# output -> التعليم هو عظيم

# see docs for batch translation and more.

Linguee Translator

.. code-block:: python

word = 'good'
  • Simple Translation

.. code-block:: python

translated_word = LingueeTranslator(source='english', target='french').translate(word)

# pass language by their abbreviation
translated_word = LingueeTranslator(source='en', target='fr').translate(word)
  • Return all synonyms or words that matches

.. code-block:: python

# set the argument return_all to True if you want to get all synonyms of the word to translate
translated_word = LingueeTranslator(source='english', target='french').translate(word, return_all=True)
  • Translate a batch of words

.. code-block:: python

translated_words = LingueeTranslator(source='english', target='french').translate_words(["good", "awesome"])

PONS Translator

.. note::

You can pass the languages by the name or by abbreviation just like
previous examples using GoogleTranslate

.. code-block:: python

word = 'awesome'
  • Simple Translation

.. code-block:: python

translated_word = PonsTranslator(source='english', target='french').translate(word)

# pass language by their abbreviation
translated_word = PonsTranslator(source='en', target='fr').translate(word)
  • Return all synonyms or words that matches

.. code-block:: python

# set the argument return_all to True if you want to get all synonyms of the word to translate
translated_word = PonsTranslator(source='english', target='french').translate(word, return_all=True)
  • Translate a batch of words

.. code-block:: python

translated_words = LingueeTranslator(source='english', target='french').translate_words(["good", "awesome"])

# with auto detection | meaning provide only the target language and let yandex detect the source
translated = YandexTranslator('your_api_key').translate(source="auto", target="en", text='Hallo, Welt')
print(f"translated text: {translated}")  # output -> translated text: Hello world

# provide source and target language explicitly
translated = YandexTranslator('your_api_key').translate(source="de", target="en", text='Hallo, Welt')
print(f"translated text: {translated}")  # output -> translated text: Hello world

text = 'happy coding'
translated = PapagoTranslator(client_id='your_client_id', secret_key='your_secret_key', source='en', target='ko').translate(text=text)  # output: 행복한 부호화

Proxy usage

deep-translator provide out of the box usage of proxies. Just define your proxies config as a dictionary and pass it to the corresponding translator. Below is an example using the GoogleTranslator but this feature can be used with all supported translators.

.. code-block:: python

from deep_translator import GoogleTranslator

# define your proxy configs:
proxies_example = {
    "https": "your https proxy",  # example: 34.195.196.27:8080
    "http": "your http proxy if available"
}
translated = GoogleTranslator(source='auto', target='de', proxies=proxies_example).translate("this package is awesome")

Usage from Terminal

For a quick access, you can use the deep_translator from terminal. For this to work, you need to provide the right arguments, which are the translator you want to use, source language, target language and the text you want to translate.

For example, provide "google" as an argument to use the google translator. Alternatively you can use the other supported translators. Just read the documentation to have an overview about the supported translators in this library.

.. code-block:: console

$ deep_translator --translator "google" --source "english" --target "german" --text "happy coding"

Or you can go for the short version:

.. code-block:: console

$ deep_translator -trans "google" -src "english" -tg "german" -txt "happy coding"

If you want, you can also pass the source and target language by their abbreviation

.. code-block:: console

$ deep_translator -trans "google" -src "en" -tg "de" -txt "happy coding"

If you want the list of languages supported by a translator service, just pass the translator service as an argument to the -trans flag followed by the -lang/--languages flag. For example:

.. code-block:: console

$ deep_translator -trans "google" -lang

====== Tests

  • Install dev requirements

.. code-block:: console

$ pip install -r requirements_dev.txt
  • Or just install pytest

.. code-block:: console

$ pip install pytest
  • you can run tests individually for each translator by passing the prefix test_ followed by the translator name as an argument to pytest.

.. code-block:: console

$ pytest test_google_trans
$ pytest test_linguee
$ pytest test_mymemory
$ pytest test_pons
  • Alternatively, you can run the test suite

.. code-block:: console

$ pytest -ra

=========================== The Translator++ mobile app

.. image:: assets/app-icon.png :width: 100 :alt: Icon of the app

After developing the deep_translator, I realised how cool this would be if I can use it as an app on my mobile phone. Sure, there is google translate, pons and linguee apps etc.. but isn't it cooler to make an app where all these translators are integrated?

Long story short, I started working on the app. I decided to use the kivy framework <https://kivy.org/#home/>_ since I wanted to code in python and to develop a cross platform app. I open sourced the Translator++ app <https://github.com/nidhaloff/deep-translator-app/>_ on my github too. Feel free to take a look at the code or make a pull request ;)

.. note:: The Translator++ app is based on the deep_translator package. I just built the app to prove the capabilities of the deep_translator package ;)

I published the first release on google play store on 02-08-2020
