Google Translator

By: rrao

Under the Hood Features:

  1. Allows people to translate from 54 languages to 53 other languages (~2900 combination!).

  2. Automatically scales to 109 x108(~11,800 combination). Google continuously adds support for newer languages and the Zimlet is designed to automatically include them when they become available.

User-level Features:

1. 1-click in-body translation:

When a user gets an email in a language other than what the Zimbra is set to, they can now press "Translate" button to instantly translate it. Google's new api automatically figures out the from-language and the Zimlet automatically passes the to-language based on what is set in Zimbra's Preferences. The result of the translation swaps the email-body with new text.

2. "Read Side-By-Side" Button

By pressing the Read Side-By-Side button in the Translation-toolbar, user can read both original and translated emails side-by-side!!

3. From and To language menus:

If you change the language in these menus, they will automatically run a new translation.

4. Reply, Reply-all Forward Translated email:

As long as the translation widget is active or open, reply/replyAll/Forward all automatically include(prepend) the translated text to the email being composed.

 

 

PS: Version 4.0 uses Google's V2 API as Google has made this paid API starting Dec 1st. To use this, you need to specify Google API KEY.

 

To purchase Google API key:

  Login to Gmail


  To understand billing: go to  http://code.google.com/apis/language/translate/v2/pricing.html 


  To pay, go to https://code.google.com/apis/console#:billing  (this is the "billing" link in the pricing.html page)


  .. this will take you to their billing console. Use credit card and pay & enable Billing.


  Click on API Access tab & you will see API KEY 

PS: It looks like this API key could be used for many paid-apps (not sure).

 

Steps to update Zimlet:

    Unzip the Zimlet say to ~/tmp/com_zimbra_gtranslator


    Open config_template.xml


    Enter your Google API here: <property name="GOOGLE_TRANSLATE_API_KEY"></property>





    Zip the Zimlet back..

        ~/tmp/com_zimbra_gtranslator/zip -r com_zimbra_gtranslator.zip *





    Install the Zimlet

  • cannot get working on 8.7.4 

    By: Xardas999 on on 3/8/17 for version 4.1

    configured as advised, but the zimlet says "Cannot translate. Ask your system administrator" . System administrator is me, so I'm asking myself, but without success. The error messages should contain more essential information about what's wrong. Placed the bug to bugzilla, no response so far.

  • Has a different performance 

    By: Frankcolombus on on 7/1/15 for version 3.0.1

    It has different performance, in other translating i usually had a problem with their work. I mean they didn't work well, the translating often misinterpret the words. But Google translator is different, it has 99% accuracy in interpreting the words. Lovely!Frank - Casement windows

  • The Best Translation Web Application 

    By: woodman0072 on on 7/1/15 for version 3.0.1

    What I like about google translation is ability to detect language so when we find some web news but we don't really know what the language is, we just copy some paragraph and see the language and start translation for the whole article John - How to clean hardwood floors

  • Very useful.

  • Google Translate - Simply Awasome 

    By: tileman on on 7/1/15 for version 4.0

    In my opinion Google Translate is one of their best online tools. I use it on daily basis and it's working really effectively. It has function of automatic language detection, so you don't have to worry if you don't know which language it may be. Addationaly it looks like it have learning curve, becouse I see translations are becoming better and better.Tommy - how to clean hardwood floors

  • Switch to MSN 

    By: marcweb on on 11/7/11 for version 3.0.1

    I've used Google Translate over two years for many websites. Currently I am providing content in over six languages and therefore this addon was quite handy. 5 stars!Unfortunately Google now wants us to pay money for accessing their translation api. My advise: switch to MSN. It might not be that powerful but we really need a free api solution for translating web content.A connection between this extension and the MSN translator would be awesome.Marc from Browsergames Liste

  • Keep it going!! 

    By: nivekmai on on 11/4/11 for version 3.0.1

    Someone please make this work again. Since google has now abandoned their translation API, this should be remade with the bing translator. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff512404.aspx Please make this work again! I desperately need the functionality.

  • This tool is very helpful 

    By: Tom Tyler on on 10/11/11 for version 3.0.1

    As an event planning jobs, I often do co-operation with people overseas and of course different languages. for it, this tool is very helpful to me.

  • Keep it alive 

    By: stephenjudge on on 9/11/11 for version 3.0.1

    I love this tool, it is invaluable to me. Now that Google is switching to a paid version of there API does this mean this tool is dead for good. Is it economically feasible for VMware to pay for a license to offer this tool to it's users. Or are there alternative API's out there that are just as good and are free.

  • VERY NICE WORK 

    By: ghpink on on 6/17/11 for version 3.3

    I have installed this and its works great.  Is there any way I can install this on my website at: http://www.frynge.com I want to offer my site in many different languages.  Thanks!

  • ehh..

  • Great work! waiting for compatibility with version 7 

    By: bernd on on 4/13/11 for version 3.3

    I use the zimlet on zDesktop and it works great! But most of the time I'am working with the webclient of Zimbra Network 7.0.1 and here we have no function of the Google Translator?!Any new for an update?Thanks for your work on this.

  • Excellent Tool 

    By: dipeshmehta on on 11/1/10 for version 3.2

    This zimlet is an excellent tool for some of our users who receive their mails from all over the world in different languages.However, this zimlet works best with web client, it's not compatible with ZD 2.0, please make it compatible with ZD. 

  • Very handy! 

    By: rromei on on 10/7/10 for version 3.0.1

    This zimlet is very handy (3.0.1).I had it not working at first because some of my users don't use the default COS. So I had to use zmprov and add the proper domains proxies to that COS.After that it works fine.Thanks rrao

      Replied on 2/3/11

  • Excellent 

    By: xxlGuru on on 9/6/10 for version 3.3

    Great tool, very useful in my work. Found one minor glitch, the combo boxes do not function correctly when you are trying to change the languages. The new language you select does not get actioned and it reverts to what it had before. (You can work round it by selecting the combo box and rolling the mouse wheel to change the language). Can you add this functionality to emails you open in a new window too? Great app anyway, a real timesaver. 

  • Brillliant!! 

    By: mailman.33 on on 8/2/10 for version 3.0

    Awesome work zimbra ... I just love this feature .. just wondering if we can click the translate button, write a word and get it translated ... besides translating the whole mail.

  • Really nice... 

    By: j2b on on 7/1/10 for version 2.0

    Can you please give additional info on translation pair settings? Google does translations in more languages, that available in Zimlet. Can we do it by ourselves?

  • nice tool very handy

  2. Automatically scales to 109 x108(~11,800 combination). Google continuously adds support for newer languages and the Zimlet is designed to automatically include them when they become available.

User-level Features:

1. 1-click in-body translation:

When a user gets an email in a language other than what the Zimbra is set to, they can now press "Translate" button to instantly translate it. Google's new api automatically figures out the from-language and the Zimlet automatically passes the to-language based on what is set in Zimbra's Preferences. The result of the translation swaps the email-body with new text.

2. From and To language menus:

If you change the language in these menus, they will automatically run a new translation.

3. "Read Side-By-Side" Button

By pressing the Read Side-By-Side button in the Translation-toolbar, user can read both original and translated emails side-by-side!!

4. Reply, Reply-all Forward Translated email:

As long as the translation widget is active or open, reply/replyAll/Forward all automatically include(prepend) the translated text to the email being composed.

Release Notes:
