Wanted to show off a small example of my Baserow plugin, which introduces language translation capability. It’s a very small example but it took me a while to get there, many thanks to @nigel and @petrs
Besides translation, other functionality such as dictionary lookup will be supported. My plan is to eventually have a full featured app which can be described as a “spreadsheet for language learning”. There will be a free tier, and a paid tier (which unlocks access to premium translation service such as DeepL).
While it’s easy to get a one-off translation on the web or on mobile using google translate, people who are learning languages need to be able to build and maintain lists of vocabulary and sentences and annotate them in various way. They need import/export functionality, some users may want to import into flashcard software. Language teachers who work online will also benefit from having such a tool.
