Google Translate is a popular service that allows anyone to translate text between two languages.

The original Google Translate service is made available on a Google site.

It is also possible to use the Google Translate service on another site by calling the Google Translate API.

This package provides an alternative to making Google Translate available on another site that uses JavaScript to call Google Translate service using Google JavaScript libraries to call the service.
