Translaboob is a console application to get translation of a text from supported websites.
It supports the following websites:
You can run Translaboob without any parameter to get an interactive prompt, or specify a command to run it directly and exit just after.
In this page we will use the interactive mode:

The first time you launch translaboob, it will ask you what backends you want to add and configure.
You can also use the
backends command to manage them, and to enable only specific backends.
Get a translation
To translate a text, you may use this command:
translaboob> translate FROM TO [TEXT]
- FROM — the original language
- TO — to destination language
- TEXT — text to translate. If missing, a text editor will be launched
translaboob> translate fr en J'aime le chocolat * googletranslate I love chocolate
You can also load several backends to compare translations from different sources:
translaboob> translate en fr dick * wordreference bite * googletranslate queue
