Translate Integrations

Translate Integration Details

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:

Translate Text

Translates text you provide into another language. Text is capped at 1000 characters.

Detect Language

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. This integration has three steps: It will trigger whenever a new item is posted to an RSS feed, sending the content through Zapier's translation app. This will translate it into the language you indicate during setup and then post the content to a custom RSS feed for you to read and share.

    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.
