Hi Pals, 

 

I don't know if somebody notice the web-search translate function it doesn't work. Well, in my case on Catalina the url translate function return a error, well, for that, I share with you a way to fix it with a own websearch function.

 

You can add a custom search with the next parameters:

  • Search URL: https://translate.google.com/?sl=en&tl=es&text={query} // this is the new url where translate english to spanish 
  • Title: any text
  • Keyword: your keyword to enable the translation

 

And save. Now when enable your search and write you keyword is possible to get the translation.

 

PD: you can add all the web search function you want, in my case I have two for each translation.

 

 

  • Search URL: https://translate.google.com/?sl=es&tl=en&text={query} // this is the new url where translate spanish to english 
  • Title: any text
  • Keyword: tse

 

  • Search URL: https://translate.google.com/?sl=en&tl=es&text={query} // this is the new url where translate english to spanish 
  • Title: any text
  • Keyword: tes

I experienced the same issue and I know the solution.

 

This is what Alfred currently does:

https://www.google.com/translate_t?text=elephant

 

And this is what it should do:

https://translate.google.co.uk/?text=elephant

 

Looks like Google changed the URL and query params schema. Should be a quick fix on your end :)

 

Thanks 🐘💨
