Inspiration

The theme is help those in poverty. With education being a top component in person's life, we wanted to create something that would help people with the language barrier and improve teacher's knowledge on what they can teach to improve the lives of children.

What it does

SMS Translation Service translates word or a phrase texted to a specific number which then texts back with the result.

A web component saves all the requests in the database as well, to analyze the incoming requests help teachers what to teach kids.

How I built it

SMS Translation Service was built using Twilio API along with Google Translate API using PHP. All the translated words are then stored on a mySQL database to analyze which words are translated the most.

Challenges I ran into

We ran into challenges connecting Twilio API with Google Translate API using PHP with Twilio and jQuery with Google Translate. We ended up using PHP for both APIs.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Able to connect multiple APIs in one application.

What I learned

We learned how to use Twilio API and building an SMS app.

What's next for SMS Translation Service

SMS Translation can improve by adding the website into other languages along with text alerts and more data.
