Specification for Translate Service

Check out the specification below to see how easy it is to integrate translation into your solutions.


Each request to a feedzon web service requires a number of parameters, all listed below. All requests require an Service Key which was generated when you activated a key for that service. You can create multiple keys for each service, if required.

feedzon methods and parameters names are all case sensitive,e.g. ConvertText will work but convertText will not; ServiceKey=abc123 will work and SERVICEKEY=abc123 will not.

Convert Text

Translate text to a specified language.

Request Format
