Google Translate API – GTranslate PHP Library

Just finished a PHP Library that implements Google Translate API.

 

How it works ?

The Library allows you to translate any phrase from one original language to another.

Usage

GTranslate library allows you to translate any language to another, the usage is fairly simple.

  1. You just need to require the library
    1. require(“GTranslate.php”);
  2. Instantiate the GTranslate Object
    1. $gt = new Gtranslate;
  3. Request for a translation
    1. $gt->it_to_en(“Ciao mondo”);

How to

You can call the translation with any country you want, altough there are an available list of translatable coutries, on the languages.ini file. You can tanslate using the abreviation of the country or the full name.

$gt->english_to_german(“Hello”);

or

$gt->en_to_de(“Hello”);

Wil give you the same result.

Download

You can download the GTranslate PHP library at Google Code Page
