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

@Erick Out of curiosity, which version of Alfred are you using and what error are you seeing? The translate default web search seems to work fine but I'd be interested to hear if anyone has issues with it. :)

 

Cheers,
Vero

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 🐘💨
