Derick Rethans' Blog:
Translating Twitter
January 05, 2011 @ 10:05:46

In a new post to his blog Derick Rethans shows how to implement something very handy for those wanting to read all of the posts in their twitter stream, regardless of the language. Using Google web services, he's put together a twitter translation for his twitter client Haunt.

As the author of Xdebug I am interested in finding out what people think of it, and whether they have problems or compliments. I've set-up a twitter account for Xdebug, @xdebug, and my twitter client Haunt also shows me all tweets with the search term xdebug. However, sometimes I get tweets in a language I can't read.

Since there's no language information associated with tweets, Derick used Google's Language Detect web service to get the language code for the text. Another quick call to the Translate service and a suable translation is returned. You can see how it looks in his screenshot. You can find the code for it here.
