    Usage

    From automatic language detection to Chinese:

    const {translate} = require('@paiva/translation-google');
     
    translate('This is Google Translate', {to: 'zh-cn'}).then(res => {
        console.log(res.text);
        //=> 这是Google翻译
        console.log(res.from.language.iso);
        //=> en
    }).catch(err => {
        console.error(err);
    });

    For Chinese user, try this:

    const {translate} = require('@paiva/translation-google');
     
    translate('This is Google Translate', {to: 'zh-cn', suffix: 'cn'}).then(res => {
        console.log(res.text);
        //=> 这是Google翻译
        console.log(res.from.language.iso);
        //=> en
    }).catch(err => {
        console.error(err);
    });

    Sometimes, the API will not use the auto corrected text in the translation:

    translate('This is Google Translat', {from: 'en', to: 'zh-cn'}).then(res => {
        console.log(res);
        console.log(res.text);
        //=> 这是Google翻译
        console.log(res.from.text.autoCorrected);
        //=> false
        console.log(res.from.text.value);
        //=> This is Google [Translate]
        console.log(res.from.text.didYouMean);
        //=> true
    }).catch(err => {
        console.error(err);
    });

    Proxying requests through Tor rotator to overcome quota limit:

    # use docker image for Tor cluster
    docker run -d -p 5566:5566 -p 4444:4444 --env tors=25 mattes/rotating-proxy
    const {translate} = require('@paiva/translation-google');
    const {HttpsProxyAgent} = require('https-proxy-agent');
     
    translate('This is Google Translate', {
        to: 'zh-cn',
        agent: new HttpsProxyAgent('http://localhost:8118')
    }).then(res => {
        console.log(res.text);
        //=> 这是Google翻译
        console.log(res.from.language.iso);
        //=> en
    }).catch(err => {
        console.error(err);
    });

    options

    Type: object

    suffix

    If true, the returned object will have a raw property with the raw response (string) from Google Translate.

    agent

    Type: object Default: undefined

    An object representing http, https and http2 keys for http.Agent, https.Agent and http2wrapper.Agent instance. This allows to proxy the requests.

    Returns an object:

    • text (string) – The translated text.
    • from (object)
      • language (object)
        • didYouMean (boolean) - true if the API suggest a correction in the source language
        • iso (string) - The code of the language that the API has recognized in the text
      • text (object)
        • autoCorrected (boolean)true if the API has auto corrected the text
        • value (string) – The auto corrected text or the text with suggested corrections
        • didYouMean (booelan)true if the API has suggested corrections to the text
    • raw (string) - If options.raw is true, the raw response from Google Translate servers. Otherwise, ''.

    Note that res.from.text will only be returned if from.text.autoCorrected or from.text.didYouMean equals to true. In this case, it will have the corrections delimited with brackets ([ ]):

    translate('This is Google Translat').then(res => {
        console.log(res.from.text.value);
        //=> This is [Google Translate]
    }).catch(err => {
        console.error(err);
    });

    Otherwise, it will be an empty string ('').
