We wanted to create something functional for Cisco Spark, that could be of real use to people using Cisco Spark in a business context. We thought that people at large businesses, often with multiple offices, might need or want a quick way to translate text.
What it does
Leverages the Google Translate API to allow translation with the command @TranslatorBot [sentence/phrase] tr [language]
How we built it
With blood, sweat, and tears. We began basic bot implementations with Node.js and then built up to the integration of the Google Translate API.
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
It works pretty well with most languages!!

You can do anything you put your mind to.
