About googletrans

Googletrans is a free and unlimited python library that implemented Google Translate API. This uses the Google Translate Ajax API to make calls to such methods as detecting and translate.


Now, let’s understand the code using comments.

from googletrans import Translator

# taking some text from our website in french language
text = '''Python est un langage de programmation interprété et de haut
            niveau qui a été créé à la fin des années 1980, mais il a été implémenté
            en décembre 1989 par Guido Van Rossum . Le mot Python vient du serpent.
            Selon la récente enquête de StackOverflow , Python a dépassé la popularité de Java'''

# Creating an instance of Translator to use
# Google Translate ajax API
translator = Translator()

# detect- auto detects language of the input text
dt = translator.detect(text)

# translate()-translates the text from source language to destination language
# translate(self, text, dest='en', src='auto', **kwargs)
# if we don't specify the dest(destination language) then
# it translates to english
translated = translator.translate(text)
