Translate & search Twitter
What is this?
Twasebook is a web application aimed at language learners. Using the Microsoft Translator and Twitter Search APIs, it allows you to discover how particular words in your target language are used "in context" by displaying the latest Twitter posts containing those words, and a translation of each post into your own language (currently set to English, but more languages are coming soon).
Hints & Tips
- Search for common words/phrases - the more common the word or phrase you are searching for, the more likely it is that people are using it on Twitter.
- Keep search terms down to single words or very short phrases.
Twasebook is currently a personal project, and therefore I need to pay hosting/general running costs out of my own pocket. So, if you like using the app enough to chip in a few quid, bucks, or euros, feel free to do so using the Paypal donation button below. If not, that's fine!
