TxtToSL API Wrapper for NodeJS


By using Promises, translation is asynchronous so it doesn't take up the main thread, allowing other things to happen in the background whilst translating.

"I wanted to make a Google Translate-like translator. Not always 100% accurate but still alright, as well as easy and simple to use."

Development is led by Oojmed, a non-profit software development organisation. However, all of our code (including this site) except the API / server is open source on our GitHub profile.
