This API may be called in a number of ways, including an HTTP REST Service, an AJAX-callable service and a SOAP Web Service. 53 The Microsoft Translator API, an online service, is available directly from the Windows Azure Marketplace. The Microsoft Translator API is sold as a monthly subscription based on the number of characters of text passed to the API. The API is available for FREE for usage up to 2 million characters per month. 54 55 '''Speaklite Translate API''' 54 56 some kind of mammal, with hair 55 WebServiceX Translate API:: 56 some kind of reptile, without hair 57 (can you spot the typo?) 57 58 '''WebServiceX Translate API''' 59 58 60 === Thoughts about server-side implementation === 59 61 Another idea that came up is, that it would be nice if a user could search for something by using his or her language specific letters. For example, a user wants to search for "Aspirin" in Arabic letters. Currently, he won't find anything, as the UTF-8 encodings of roman letters are different from the Arabic letters ("Aspirin" == "أسبرين" would fail). The idea is to reverse transliterate the non-roman string into roman letters on server-side and perform the search with the reverse-transliterated string.
