Example of Python code that translates the website into other languages, with BeautifulSoup and googletrans libraries

June 20, 2021, in Leadership and Attitude, by Neculai Fantanaru

You can view the full code here: https://pastebin.com/7p27PPQ6

Install Python. Then install the following two libraries using the Command Prompt (cmd) interpreter in Windows10:

Python will automatically translate the following html tags with the googletrans library:

py -m pip install "googletrans"
py -m pip install googletrans==4.0.0rc1
py -m pip install beautifulsoup4

Also, Python code will also automatically translate the contents of the following tags (Your Text), but only if these tags are framed by <!-- ARTICOL START --> and <!-- ARTICOL START --> html comments. Of course, you will need to replace these tags with your own tags.

<!-- ARTICOL START -->

<h1 class="den_articol" itemprop="name">Your Text</h1>
<p class="text_obisnuit">Your Text</p>
<p class="text_obisnuit2">Your Text</p>
<span class="text_obisnuit2">Your Text</span>
<span class="text_obisnuit">Your Text</span>
<li class="text_obisnuit">Your Text</li>
<a class="linkMare" href="https://neculaifantanaru.com/en/">Your Text</a>
<h4 class="text_obisnuit2>Your Text</h4>
<h3 class="text_obisnuit2>Your Text</h3>
<h5 class="text_obisnuit2>Your Text</h5>

<!-- ARTICOL FINAL -->
              

THE CODE: Copy and run the code below in any interpreter program (I use pyScripter) . Don't forget to change the path in the "files_from_folder" line. And here is the list of languages that can be translated: LANG.

from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
from bs4.formatter import HTMLFormatter
from googletrans import Translator
import requests

translator = Translator()

class UnsortedAttributes(HTMLFormatter):
    def attributes(self, tag):
        for k, v in tag.attrs.items():
            yield k, v

files_from_folder = r"e:\Carte\BB\17 - Site Leadership\Principal"

use_translate_folder = False

destination_language = 'ceb'

extension_file = ".html"

import os

directory = os.fsencode(files_from_folder)

def recursively_translate(node):
    for x in range(len(node.contents)):
        if isinstance(node.contents[x], str):
            if node.contents[x].strip() != '':
                try:
                    node.contents[x].replaceWith(translator.translate(node.contents[x], dest=destination_language).text)
                except:
                    pass
        elif node.contents[x] != None:
            recursively_translate(node.contents[x])

for file in os.listdir(directory):
    filename = os.fsdecode(file)
    print(filename)
    if filename == 'y_key_e479323ce281e459.html' or filename == 'TS_4fg4_tr78.html': #ignore this 2 files
        continue
    if filename.endswith(extension_file):
        with open(os.path.join(files_from_folder, filename), encoding='utf-8') as html:
            soup = BeautifulSoup('<pre>' + html.read() + '</pre>', 'html.parser')
            for title in soup.findAll('title'):
                recursively_translate(title)

            for meta in soup.findAll('meta', {'name':'description'}):
                try:
                    meta['content'] = translator.translate(meta['content'], dest=destination_language).text
                except:
                    pass

            for h1 in soup.findAll('h1', {'itemprop':'name'}, class_='den_articol'):

                end_comment = str(soup).index('<!-- ARTICOL FINAL -->')
                if begin_comment < str(soup).index(str(h1)) < end_comment:

                if begin_comment < str(soup).index(str(p)) < end_comment:
                    recursively_translate(p)

            for p in soup.findAll('p', class_='text_obisnuit2'):
                begin_comment = str(soup).index('<!-- ARTICOL START -->')
                end_comment = str(soup).index('<!-- ARTICOL FINAL -->')
                if begin_comment < str(soup).index(str(p)) < end_comment:
                    recursively_translate(p)

            for span in soup.findAll('span', class_='text_obisnuit2'):
                begin_comment = str(soup).index('<!-- ARTICOL START -->')
                end_comment = str(soup).index('<!-- ARTICOL FINAL -->')

                if begin_comment < str(soup).index(str(li)) < end_comment:

                if begin_comment < str(soup).index(str(h5)) < end_comment:
                    recursively_translate(h5)

        print(f'{filename} translated')
        soup = soup.encode(formatter=UnsortedAttributes()).decode('utf-8')
        new_filename = f'{filename.split(".")[0]}.html'
        if use_translate_folder:
            try:

                    new_html.write(soup[5:-6])

That's all folks.

If you like my code, then make me a favor: translate your website into Romanian, "ro".

Also, there is a VERSION 2 of this code or VERSION 3 or VERSION 4 or VERSION 5
