Google released a “Google Translator Toolkit Data API,” a powerful but easy-to-use editor that enables translators to bring a human touch to machine translation through translation search, bilingual dictionaries, and custom terminology databases. Using Toolkit, you can translate HTML, Word, AdWords, Wikipedia, and other documents in a WYSIWYG ("what-you-see-is-what-you-get") editor, share them with other users, and download their translations onto your desktop. Here’re few things you can do with Toolkit: Automatically connect your content management system (CMS) with Translator Toolkit. Transform your content into HTML files, protect sections of HTML from translation through class="notranslate" attribute, upload HTML files, share files with your translators, download translated HTML, and then transform and upload documents back into your CMS • Automatically connect your file system with Translator Toolkit. Create a cron job to upload files into Translator Toolkit, shares files with your translators, then downloads completed files back to file system. API is available in labs, check documentation, where you'll find Java client library and a developer guide to get you started.
