Translation Cloud API is now available on the much talked about website, Mashape. Mashape has recently been featured on websites like TechCrunch, Mashable, and Forbes as a website designed to consume, distribute and monetize private and public APIs.
Mashape makes it easy to distribute, monetize, manage and consume cloud APIs. Mashape is in the process of building a world-class marketplace for cloud APIs, driven by a passionate community of developers from all over the world. For a programmer, Mashape is like the virtual mall for APIs and open-source platforms.
Their goal is to become the “Assembly Line” of Software; to unlock and facilitate the distribution and consumption of data and services. This is a perfect match for Translation Cloud API, which also compares itself to an assembly line for translation.
Translation Cloud API allows programmers to incorporate their proprietary crowdsourcing technology into their own applications. By doing so, they can create a fast and easy platform to submit text to be translated by a community of human translators, which is checked and verified throughout the process in order to provide fast, reliable, and more accurate translations.
The great part about Translation Cloud API being a part of Mashape’s community, is that you can try out the API on Mashape’s site before downloading and coding it into your program. Since understanding how a particular API works can be time-consuming, being able to experience an API without commitment is an ideal solution.
But that’s not the only benefit to using Mashape. Mashape also provides:
