Can I link a local file to a google translate document query?


Recommended Posts

I would like to use Alfred's builtin `Translate '{query}'`, which uses google translate, to translate local PDF documents in addition to text strings.

 

I know that a link to an online PDF file can be passed to a google translate query in the following way:

 

http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=nl&u=`<URL to any online PDF file>`

 

to translate an online PDF file.

 

This works as expected if I pass the URL to the online file as the query part in Alfred.

 

But that does not seem to work for local files. Is there a way to link local files?

I've searched for Alfred workflows that do that but could only find more variations of the builtin translate functionality.
