Change Google Translate URL to Auto & New Icon

It would be nice if the included translate keyword went to the auto url instead of whatever state Google Translate was last in. I've made a new Web Search keyword to replace it on my machine, but I assume the vast majority of users would want the same functionality.

So my main feature request is as simple as...

Change this: https://translate.google.com/?text=old

To this: https://translate.google.com/#auto/en/new

 

 

 

I also found a Google Translate icon to replace the generic Google icon:

As you noticed, Alfred's default translate URL will remember the last settings you had in Google translate e.g. 'Detect Language' to 'French', or 'French' to 'English'... which is much better for all Alfred users around the world. Your URL forces the translation scheme, so you are better off creating the custom search as you did.

 

I do like that icon though! I'll add a ticket :)

 

Cheers,

Andrew

That's a good point. I translate a lot of languages, pretty often so it's rarely already on the one I want. Google is right 9/10 times which is way more times in a row than I'm likely to translate a single language. I mostly wanted to share it but since it's not a workflow specifically, I lumped it in here with the icon.
