Using Composer, add to composer.json:

    "require": {
        "matthiasnoback/microsoft-translator-bundle": "dev-master"

Then using the Composer binary:

php composer.phar install

Register the bundle in /app/AppKernel.php:


class AppKernel extends Kernel
    public function registerBundles()
        $bundles = array(
            // ...
            new MatthiasNoback\MicrosoftTranslatorBundle\MatthiasNobackMicrosoftTranslatorBundle(),


This bundle wraps the corresponding Microsoft Translator V2 API PHP library and adds the translator as the service microsoft_translator to your service container.

You need to register your application at the Azure DataMarket and thereby retrieve a "client id" and a "client secret". Copy these values to the right keys in config.yml:

        client_id: "YOUR-CLIENT-ID"
        client_secret: "YOUR-CLIENT-SECRET"

Making calls

Translate a string

// in your controller

$translatedString = $this->get('microsoft_translator')->translate('This is a test', 'nl', 'en');

// $translatedString will be 'Dit is een test', which is Dutch for...

Detect the language of a string

$text = 'This is a test';

$detectedLanguage = $this->get('microsoft_translator')->detect($text);

// $detectedLanguage will be 'en'

Get a spoken version of a string

$text = 'My name is Matthias';

$spoken = $this->get('microsoft_translator')->speak($text, 'en', 'audio/mp3', 'MaxQuality');

// $spoken will be the raw MP3 data, which you can save for instance as a file
