Launched on Zapier May 3, 2016
Zapier combines Triggers (like "New Subscriber") and Actions (like "Translate Text") to complete an action in one app when a trigger occurs in another app. These combos—called "Zaps"—complete your tasks automatically.
The following Translate Triggers, Searches, and Actions are supported by Zapier:
Translates text you provide into another language. Text is capped at 1000 characters.
Tries to detect the language used for the provided text.
Translate new RSS feed items and post them to a custom feed
Great content comes in all languages. Broaden your reading selection by using automation and machine translation to convert an RSS feed from one language to another.

Note: Zapier Translation can auto-detect the source language, or this can be forced (useful if there may be multiple languages used in the content.
