Once you understand the basics of PyGTK, you can make some neat apps just by drawing upon some of the incredible APIs that are available from well-known companies such as Facebook, Twitter and Yahoo. In this video tutorial you'll learn how to work with Google's Translate API, which can translate a huge range of languages on the fly, then back up your knowledge with a simple PyGTK user interface that puts a pretty face on it all.
This tutorial is dedicated to Casey, who donated at least $50 to support free software - if you want to see more video tutorials like this one, all you have to do is donate to support the Libre Graphics Meeting. Easy!
Important: If you missed parts one and two of this tutorial series, you should watch them first because they cover many fundamental coding techniques that we'll be re-using here: Part One: Python + PyGTK + WebKit in 20 minutes and Build a PyGTK RSS reader.
(NB: if you plan to make a real application with the Google Translate API, you should credit Google in the UI somewhere.)
