Welcome to Thunkable. It seems you are using the DnD version of the designer. In this case the translator would be in the blocks page not the design page.

Here are 2 translation components:

  1. Use Yandex translation component
  2. Use webapi component with google translation api :+1:
  • Google Translation api url:<Translated language code>&q=<The text you want to translate >

sl=auto It means to automatically detect the language! So you don’t need to set the native language yourself (you can set it yourself!)

  1. Get object from Json
  2. The value obtained by the key: “sentences”
  3. The value obtained by the key: 0
  4. The value obtained by the key: “trans”

And the problem is with the column values in the DB I guess because in the list viewer it is Spanish but in the translator it is Spanish(es). I guess i need to change my DB columns.

Is there any other version of thunkable available so that i can use the table from Yandex translator without modifying the DB.


Thank u so much will try that and let u know :+1:

The Translator uses the short codes not the names. Names are there to be easier for us but the actual translator component will use the code so for Spanish it will uses es and for Greek it will use el.

You will need to have two columns in your table. One to display to users (which has the full name) and one to use in the app (which has the code). This is standard for all translators.

Thank u so much …Will try this and let u know

Wow! that’s a great reply i have added a new column to my DB table and it works fine.

I am just working on speech recognizer block. Here is my piece of code.


I want it to listen to the speech and convert it to text.

But this doesn’t work. Should I change anything.

This is a new question now. Your post was about translator. I would appreciate if you mark it solved and open a new post for the speech recognizer.

These are two different subjects, If any other member will want to search about speech recognizer, the user will not type translator in the search field.
