Press Alt-Shift-F7 to translate between two languages via the Google API. Choose the source and result languages from the listboxes. Enter the source content in the edit box. It may be a line of up to 500 characters. Press Enter for the default, Translate button. The result is copied to the clipboard and spoken.
Use the Detect button to guess the language of the content instead. The best guess is given, along with its confidence level. At the time of this writing, about 35 languages may be translated, and about 90 languages may be detected.
The Original button sets the content to the line of text that had focus before the dialog was invoked. It remembers the languages and content chosen the previous time.
The script calls a utility, TranLang.exe, which is written in Perl. The package includes the source code in TranLang.pl, and command-line syntax in TranLang.txt. It may be necessary to initially run the utility at the command line to authorize it for Internet access with antivirus software.
