Check it out

Add translateplease@sparkbot.io and give it a command in the form [sentence/phrase] tr [language]

Inspiration

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

None of us had ever used an API, or Node.js, or javascript in general. It was a very steep learning curve that never really flattened out.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

It works pretty well with most languages!!

What we learned

You can do anything you put your mind to.

What's next for Translator Bot

We wanted to use Google Natural Language Processing API in order to check the accuracy of sentiment of translations
