Why not supporting Chinese Traditional?


#1

I have tried the trail pack of systran platform api.

But found that it does have support ** Chinese Traditional.**

we are already using the old version of systran which supports the Chinese Traditional language.

Why updated version of API is not supporting the above language?

And also in Systran site under reference, they have mentioned that we also support these additional language as per in the below image .

But when I tried the zh-Hant code , it does not work.

Let me know whether systran will support this language with any different codes.

Hi,

Could you please let me know your request or the service you would you to use ?

We do support the traditional Chinese, for instance:

With the translation service:

GET /translation/text/translate?source=en&target=zh-Hans&input=this+is+a+test&key=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx HTTP/1.1
Accept: */*
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
Connection: keep-alive
Host: api-platform.systran.net
User-Agent: HTTPie/0.9.3



HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Access-Control-Allow-Headers: X-Requested-With,Content-Type,X-HTTP-METHOD-OVERRIDE
Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *
Connection: keep-alive
Content-Length: 39
Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8

{
    "outputs": [
        {
            "output": "这是测试"
        }
    ]
}

Or:

GET /translation/text/translate?source=en&target=zh-Hant&input=this+is+a+test&key=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx HTTP/1.1
Accept: */*
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
Connection: keep-alive
Host: api-platform.systran.net
User-Agent: HTTPie/0.9.3



HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Access-Control-Allow-Headers: X-Requested-With,Content-Type,X-HTTP-METHOD-OVERRIDE
Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *
Connection: keep-alive
Content-Length: 39
Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8
Date: Fri, 05 Feb 2016 14:28:28 GMT

{
    "outputs": [
        {
            "output": "這是測試"
        }
    ]
}

Or with the language detection:

GET /nlp/lid/detectLanguage/document?input=%E6%AD%A3%E9%AB%94%E5%AD%97%2F%E7%B9%81%E9%AB%94%E5%AD%97&key=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx HTTP/1.1

{
    "detectedLanguages": [
        {
            "confidence": 0.699999988079071, 
            "lang": "zh-Hant"
        }
    ]
}

Thanks

Thanks a lot for investigating the issue.

Actually before I faced the issue with Chinese Traditional.

And also in the site reference I found only Chinese Simplified as below

But Now its totally fine. Now I can able to translate a sentence from English -> Chinese Traditional and Vise versa …

Thanks a lot for your valuable support.

We are again facing issue with this language.

Kindly update me as soon as poosible.
