the address in the example code is not working, any one knows the new service address ?

B4X:
 Error: java.net.UnknownHostException: Unable to resolve host "translate.googleapis.com": No address associated with hostname

still don't know how to make it work.. where to put the api key??

B4X:
Sub Translate (jobnamekey As String,sourcelang As String,destlang As String)
    
    Dim job As HttpJob
    job.Initialize(jobnamekey,Me)
    job.Tag = counttrans

    'Use Google Free google API translate
     job.PostString($"https://Translate.googleapis.com/translate_a/single?client=gtx&sl=${sourcelangname}&tl=${destlangname}&dt=t&q=${jobnamekey}"$,"")

    job.GetRequest.SetHeader("Content-Type", "application/json")
    job.GetRequest.SetHeader("User-Agent", "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; rv:36.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/36.0")
    job.GetRequest.SetContentType("application/json")
    job.GetRequest.SetContentEncoding("text/plain")

End Sub

Based on https://cloud.google.com/translate/docs/quickstart you need to use a AccessToken (which you get using OAuth2) in a Authorisationheader.
No key is used it seems.

Edit to add: Rest reference.
https://cloud.google.com/translate/docs/translating-text#translate_translate_text-cli-curl
curl is a good one to see how it works. It can be easily translated into okhttputils calls.

As written above you need to get an Accesstoken using OAuth2 Class to get an AccessToken. You need to create a OAuthclient in your Google Cloud Console and add the correct Api to use to this Client.

enabled the cloud translation Api and I only got an API key and downloaded a .json file which it describes for accessing the private key.. but I don't know where to find the client ID which is required for the oauth2. may I ask where the client ID can be found?

This API no longer works correctly. You can use Google's Cloud Translation Beta3. You can also use the API Explorer: https://cloud.google.com/translate/docs/reference/rest/v3beta1/projects/translateText

Generate an API key ad described here: https://translatepress.com/docs/settings/generate-google-api-key


This is a sample code for B4x (not tested):

B4X:
Sub Trans(srclang As String, dstlang As String, transtr As String)
    'https://cloud.google.com/translate/docs/reference/rest/v3beta1/projects/translateText
    Dim mapReq As Map:mapReq.Initialize
        
    mapReq.Put("sourceLanguageCode",srclang)
    mapReq.Put("targetLanguageCode", dstlang)
    Dim lstContent As List:lstContent.Initialize:lstContent.Add("transtr")
    mapReq.Put("contents", transtr)
    
    Dim json As JSONGenerator:json.Initialize(mapReq)

    Dim job As HttpJob:job.Initialize("xlate", Me)
    
    Dim Parent As String="{parent=projects/*}"
'    Parent: Required. Project Or location To make a call. Must refer To a caller's project.
'    Format: projects/{project-id} Or projects/{project-id}/locations/{location-id}.
'    For global calls, use projects/{project-id}/locations/global Or projects/{project-id}.
'    Non-global location Is required For requests using AutoML models Or custom glossaries.
'    Models And glossaries must be within the same region (have same location-id), otherwise an INVALID_ARGUMENT (400) error Is returned.

    Dim API_KEY As String="YOUR API KEY HERE"

    Dim poststr As String = "https://translation.googleapis.com/v3beta1/"&Parent&":translateText?key="&API_KEY
    job.PostString(poststr, json.ToString)
    job.GetRequest.SetContentType("application/json; charset=utf-8")
 
    Wait For (job) JobDone(job As HttpJob)
    Try
        If job.Success Then
            Try
                Dim jsonParser As JSONParser
                jsonParser.Initialize(job.GetString)
                Dim lstTranslations As List=jsonParser.NextObject.Get("translations")
                Dim mapTranslatedText As Map=lstTranslations.Get(0)
                Dim strTranslatedText As String=mapTranslatedText.Get("translatedText")
                Log("Tranlated Text: "&strTranslatedText)
                
            Catch
                Log(LastException)
            End Try
        Else
            Log(job.ErrorMessage)
        End If
    Catch
        ToastMessageShow(LastException.Message,False)
    End Try
End Sub

I will test the code in a few days and make sure it works

Not quite understand about the project-id part, I.e. the parent string. May I have more hints about that?

Although I made the old code work, have a look:


B4X:
Sub bnTrans_Click
    Dim job As HttpJob

    Dim transtr As String = edIn.Text
    Dim jobname As String = "xlate"
    Dim jobtag As String = "french"

    job.Initialize(jobname, Me)
    job.Tag = jobtag

    ' Use Google Free google API translate
    Dim srclang As String = "en"
    Dim dstlang As String = "hi"

    Dim poststr As String = "https://Translate.googleapis.com/translate_a/single?client=gtx&sl=" & _
    srclang & "&tl=" & dstlang & "&dt=t&q=" & transtr

    job.Download(poststr)
    lbOut.Text = ""
End Sub

Sub JobDone (Job As HttpJob)
    Log("JobName = " & Job.JobName & ", Success = " & Job.Success)

    If (Job.Success = True) Then
    Dim trans As String = Job.GetString
    Log(trans)
    
    '========Modified code to take only the first "Double quote Value"
    Dim count=0, i=0 As Int
    Do While i<2
        If trans.SubString2(count, count+1)=$"""$ Then i=i+1
        count=count+1
    Loop
    trans=trans.SubString2(0, count)
    '========Modified code Over to take only the first "Double quote Value"

    Log(trans)
    Dim rlst As List = MyParser(trans)

    Log(rlst.Size)

    For Each sa() As String In rlst
        If (sa.Length > 0) Then
            If (lbOut.Text <> "") Then lbOut.Text = lbOut.Text & CRLF
            lbOut.Text = lbOut.Text & sa(0)
        End If
    Next

    Else
    Log("Error: " & Job.ErrorMessage)
    ToastMessageShow("Error: " & Job.ErrorMessage, True)
    End If

    Job.Release
End Sub

Sub MyParser(js As String) As List ' returns list of string arrays
  Dim rlst As List
    Dim sa1(), str As String
    Dim p As Int

    rlst.Initialize

    sa1 = Regex.Split("]", js)

    For Each s1 As String In sa1
        p = s1.LastIndexOf("[")
        If (p < 0) Then Continue

        str = s1.SubString2(p + 1, s1.Length)
        str = str.Replace(QUOTE, "")

        Dim sa2() As String = Regex.Split(",", str)
        rlst.Add(sa2)
    Next

    Return(rlst)
End Sub
