Translate from english to german

Here is a simple example where we use the GoogleTranslator class to translate a text into german.

from deep_translator import GoogleTranslator
translated = GoogleTranslator(source='auto', target='de').translate("keep it up, you are awesome")  # output -> Weiter so, du bist gro├čartig

Batch translation

You could also do batch translations by adding a list of words/phrases or by adding a whole file. In this example we translate a list of words.

from deep_translator import (GoogleTranslator,

texts = ["hallo welt", "guten morgen"]
translated = GoogleTranslator('de', 'en').translate_batch(texts)
