Free and Open Source Machine Translation API. 100% self-hosted, no limits, no ties to proprietary services. Run your own API server in just a few minutes.

I always used translation applications on my phone, when I still used google services the oblivious choice was google translate, but after learning what google does, I traded one evil for the other and turned to the Microsoft app.

I tried several app’s open source but none were 100% effective, when I saw a post on this site, open source, the first thing I did was put an icon for the site on my phone, I gave up all applications.

It is very good this project and everyone should support, good initiatives like this are worth a lot in the days running away from BigTech.

Very happy to learn about this!

One issue I found, it doesn’t accept single words in french

Cat -> Cat

If I use multiple words it’s fine

the cat -> le chat

try without an uppercase letter at the beginning. Maybe it doesn’t translate “Cat” because, with the capital C, it thinks it’s a proper name.

I’m using Deepl right now. Good to know that there is a true FLOSS translator, so I will use this instead of Deepl. Thanks :D

This is actually a pretty good improvement compared to google translate. I made a couple of tries from english to portuguese and got results in european portuguese. Google always defaults to brazilian portuguese and it sticks out like a sore thumb while reading it in Europe, even from short simple sentences.
