Yandex Translate workflow for Alfred (powered by Alfy).

Install

$ npm install -g alfred-yandex-translate

In addition you need to set your Yandex Translate API keys and Yandex Dictionary API key in the workflow environment variables.

Yandex Translate

You can follow an official Getting Started guide to setup your pair of OAuth Token and Folder ID: English, Russian. Here are the steps how to configure the keys in Alfred:

  • Setup your billing account on the Billing Settings page. Its status should be ACTIVE or TRIAL_ACTIVE.
  • Get your OAuth Token. Save the generated key.
  • Get your Folder ID. You may want to use default which should already exist or create a new one. Save the ID.
  • In the Users and Roles Settings make sure your user has a role editor or higher for the folder from the previous step. To see the current role click on the ... icon and select "Configure Roles".
  • Open Alfred preferences.
  • Click on the Workflows tab.
  • Select the Yandex Translate workflow.
  • Open the environment variables panel.
  • Paste your OAuth Token in the YANDEX_OAUTH_TOKEN variable.
  • Paste your Folder ID in the YANDEX_FOLDER_ID variable.

Yandex Dictionary

To setup both keys do the following:

  • Generate new Yandex Dictionary API key here or use existing one from My Keys page.
  • Open Alfred preferences.
  • Click on the Workflows tab.
  • Select the Yandex Translate workflow.
  • Open the environment variables panel.
  • Paste your Yandex Dictionary API key in the YANDEX_DICT_API_KEY variable.

Usage

There are two commands available:

  • ytc - configures translation direction. Shows all available options to select from. Default is en-ru.
  • yt - translates input query using current translation direction. Outputs translation. Use Enter to copy the translation in the clipboard. Use ⌘ Cmd + Enter to enlarge the translation text.

You can also setup shortcuts for often used translators. To do this, open the workflow editor and do the following:

  • Copy yt script filter.
  • Paste it and connect with the Copy to Clipboard and Large Type the same way as original yt script filter.
  • Open edit dialog for new script filter.
  • In the Script field add translation direction you wish to use to the end of the command. For example, ./node_modules/.bin/run-node scripts/translate.js "$1" it-ru.
  • Change Keyword and Placeholder Title to something more meaningful for you.
