Yandex Translate

Non-Visible component
Category Requires Version
Media API 19, Android 4.4 - 4.4.4 KitKat 2

Overview

Use this component to translate words and sentences between different languages. This component needs Internet access, as it will request translations to the Yandex.Translate service. Specify the source and target language in the form source-target using two letter language codes. So"en-es" will translate from English to Spanish while "es-ru" will translate from Spanish to Russian. If you leave out the source language, the service will attempt to detect the source language. So providing just "es" will attempt to detect the source language and translate it to Spanish.

This component is powered by the Yandex translation service. See http://api.yandex.com/translate/ for more information, including the list of available languages and the meanings of the language codes and status codes.

Note: Translation happens asynchronously in the background. When the translation is complete, the "GotTranslation" event is triggered.
