R package to translate text.


The polyglotr package is a language translation tool for the R programming language. It provides convenient functions to translate text using different (free) translation services. This vignette will guide you through the usage of the package and demonstrate how to translate text and files in various languages.

Currently, the package has functions to communicate with the following services:


To see which functions are available, please refer to the reference page of the polyglotr package. The reference page provides a comprehensive list of functions available in the package, organized by category.

Additionally, the package includes vignettes that provide more detailed information on how to use the functions in the package.


To install the package:

```{r} # The easiest way is to get polyglotr from CRAN install.packages(“polyglotr”)

Alternatively, install the development version from GitHub



# Usage

To demonstrate the usage of the `polyglotr` package, let's consider an example where we translate a list of texts into multiple languages using the `create_translation_table` function.

texts <- c("Hello, how are you?", 
           "I love programming!", 
           "This is a test.")

languages <- c("es", 

create_translation_table(texts, languages)

#>        Original_word                     es
#> 1 Hello, how are you?     ¿Hola, cómo estás?
#> 2 I love programming! ¡Me encanta programar!
#> 3     This is a test.    Esto es una prueba.
#>                           fr                       de
#> 1 Bonjour comment allez-vous?   Hallo, wie geht's dir?
#> 2        J'adore programmer ! Ich liebe Programmieren!
#> 3              C'est un test.        Das ist ein Test.
