Microsoft provides a translator service in its in-house Azure Cloud, which is free for low to moderate usage. REST interfaces provided there can be used to deliver content in any language and to obtain translate a custom text into a selected target language. This service can be particularly useful when multilingually providing content, for example on a blog-like website.
In order to be able to use the Translator Service, some programming work is required. I have developed a plugin for the popular framework CakePHP 4, which is freely accessible to everyone.
I published my developed plugin as a source code on my GitHub page https://github.com/jjoswig/cakephp-azuretranslator. It is also available as a ready-made package on Packagist under https://packagist.org/packages/jjoswig/azure-translator.
What is the content of this blog, you may ask? My name is Julian Joswig and I am a big fan of IT and technology (mainly Linux, servers, networks and all related topics). Sometimes I almost bite my teeth on difficult issues. But if I have found a solution, I want to share it with the world. Professionally, I work as a management consultant in Germany with a focus on IT and business.
