Google Translator 411 Error [Length Required]

9 posts in this topic

Hey I searched code on autoit forum and modify it according to my needs and try to translate text from Russian to English in return I'm getting error such as "Error 411 (Length Required)!!1"

Both my autoit codes and error I got are given below, please help me to solve this issue, Thanks

Autoit codes to translate text form Russian to English;

#include <urlencode.au3>
$File1 = @ScriptDir & "\russian_text.txt"
$txt = FileRead($File1)
; Try to convert line breaks with .....so final URL looks simpler
$txt = StringReplace($txt, @CRLF, '...........')
$txt = StringReplace($txt, @LF, '.............')
$txt = StringReplace($txt, @CR, '.............')
FileWrite (@scriptdir & '\russian_text2.txt', $txt)
$openfile = @ScriptDir & "\russian_text2.txt"
$mytext = FileRead ($openfile)
$encoding = urlencode ($mytext)
FileWrite (@scriptdir & '\enooding.txt', $encoding)
$from = "ru"
$to = "en"
$url = "https://translate.googleapis.com/translate_a/single?client=gtx"
$url &= "&sl=" & $from & "&tl=" & $to & "&dt=t&q=" & $encoding
$oHTTP = ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
$oHTTP.Open("POST", $url, False)
$oHTTP.Send()
$sData = $oHTTP.ResponseText
$sData = StringRegExpReplace($sData, '.*?\["(.*?)(?<!\\)"[^\[]*', "$1" & @crlf)
FileWrite (@scriptdir & '\errorcode.txt', $sData)
Msgbox(0,"", $sData)

In response of above codes, I'm getting below error;

Interesting.

Try this:

$oHttp.SetRequestHeader('Content-Length', $nValue)

Thanks for guidance but where to put it even i put it after below code

$oHTTP = ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")

it give me error $nValue not declared like you can say that variable used without defining it

If i put $nValue = "0" then i got following error;

The script work on my side:

$sString = "This is a test phrase. Translate me. I'll write al very long phrase for see if there is an error based on the text lenght but it doesn't on my side, i don't know. Well good luck, see you soon on Autoit thread!"
$sFrom = "en"
$sTo = "ru"
$sURL = "https://translate.googleapis.com/translate_a/single?client=gtx&sl=" & $sFrom & "&tl=" & $sTo & "&dt=t&q=" & $sString

$oHTTP = ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
$oHTTP.Open("GET", $sURL, False)
$oHTTP.Send()
$sData = $oHTTP.ResponseText
$sData = StringRegExpReplace($sData, '.*?\["(.*?)(?<!\\)"[^\[]*', "$1" & @CRLF)
MsgBox(0, 0, $sData)

Probably there is some mistake when you read and decode the file?

EDIT: Replace POST with GET, better the second one.

You must to set proper value.

 


What is the problem with reverse translation ?

    Local $sFrom = "en"
    Local $sTo = "ru"

    Local $sData = _Google_Translate($sFrom, $sTo, $sString)
    $sData = _Google_Translate($sTo, $sFrom, $sData)
    MsgBox(0, 0, $sData)
EndFunc   ;==>_Example


Func _Google_Translate($sFrom, $sTo, $sString)
    Local $sURL = "https://translate.googleapis.com/translate_a/single?client=gtx&sl=" & $sFrom & "&tl=" & $sTo & "&dt=t&q=" & $sString

    Local $oHTTP = ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
    $oHTTP.Open("POST", $sURL, False)
    $oHTTP.Send()
    Local $sData = $oHTTP.ResponseText
    $sData = StringRegExpReplace($sData, '.*?\["(.*?)(?<!\\)"[^\[]*', "$1" & @CRLF)
    Return $sData

      Hi all,
      I have a bit of code that works on my old Win10 PC, that fails on my new Win10 PC, and I think the only significant difference is the version of Autoit - old PC has 3.3.12, new has 3.3.14.
      I couldn't find anything mentioned in the change logs though, so perhaps I'm wrong.
      Anyway, the code to replicate my issue is:
      Test('username', 'DOMAIN') ; THIS ERRORS: ;Test('localun', 'DOMAIN') ; THIS ERRORS: ;Test(' ', ' ') ; THIS ERRORS: ;Test('', '') ; THIS ERRORS: ;Test('localun', '') ; THIS ERRORS: ;Test('', 'DOMAIN') Func Test($un, $dom) $compName = 'PCNAME' $FullName = '.' $Description = '.' ; get the WIM object $objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & $compName & "\root\cimv2") ; get default user full name and description $objAccount = $objWMIService.Get("Win32_UserAccount.Name='" & $un & "',Domain='" & $dom & "'") If IsObj($objAccount) Then $FullName = $objAccount.FullName $Description = $objAccount.Description EndIf ConsoleWrite($FullName & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite($Description & @CRLF) Return EndFunc  
      On my old PC this code will output just . and . for each of those line currently commented out. Which is fine.
      On my new PC any of those commented out lines of code cause an error, and the script won't even compile.
      $objAccount = $objWMIService.Get("Win32_UserAccount.Name='" & $un & "',Domain='" & $dom & "'") $objAccount = $objWMIService^ ERROR I'm very much a newb with the WMI stuff and objects, but it looks like the .Get property is failing when either $un or $dom aren't valid in v3.3.14, whereas in 3.3.12 the .Get would fail to return an object, which is then caught by the If statement.
      Am I on track with this? Is there some new/better way to code the example so that 3.3.14 will compile it?

      Good morning,
      I am struggling to find a way to force a ControlClick on a particular hidden element within a Google Slides window. Using Au3Info doesn't work as the hidden text won't appear when attempting to gather the data. Using inspect element will show the class/title of the button, but using the class in the ControlClick function doesn't seem to do anything. Since this script is going to be running on multiple machines with different resolutions, MouseClick isn't a good option either. Can someone help me figure out how to click this full screen button?
      One more note - It says "Ctrl + Shift + F" for full screen, however sending that combo doesn't work - nor does actually using those keys on the keyboard. Possible conflict with AutoIT hotkeys? 
      Here's some sample code / screenshots to help:
      ControlClick($Title, "", "[CLASS:punch-viewer-icon punch-viewer-full-screen goog-inline-block]")

      CodeCrypter enables you to encrypt scripts without placing the key inside the script.
      This is because this key is extracted from the user environment at runtime by, for example:
      password user query any macro (e.g., @username) any AutoIt function call any UDF call some permanent environment variable on a specific machine (and not created by your script) a server response a device response anything else you can think of, as long as it's not stored in the script any combination of the above You need several scripts to get this to work, and they are scattered over several threads, so here's a single bundle that contains them all (including a patched version of Ward's AES.au3; with many thanks to Ward for allowing me to include this script here):
      CodeScannerCrypter.bundle.v2.2.7z
      Note: if you experience issues under Win8/8.1 (as some users have reported), please upgrade to Win10 (or use Win7) if you can; as far as I can tell, the scripts in the bundle all work under Win7 & Win10 (and XP). Moreover, I have no access to a Win8 box, so these issues will not be fixed, at least not by yours truly.
       
      How the bits and pieces fit together:
      CodeCrypter is a front-end for the MCF UDF library (you need version 1.3 or later). Its thread is here:
      '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>
      The MCF package (also contained in the CodeScannerCrypter bundle) contains MCF.au3 (the library itself) plus a little include file called MCFinclude.au3. The latter you have to include in any script you wish to encrypt. Any code preceding it will not be encrypted, any code following it will be encrypted. You define the dynamic key inside MCFinclude.au3, in the UDF: _MCFCC_Init().
      From the same post you can download an MCF Tutorial which I heartily recommend, because encrypting a script requires a number of steps in the right order, namely:
      In MCFinclude.au3, define and/or choose your dynamic key(s) (skip this step = use default setting) include MCFinclude.au3 in your target script Run CodeScanner (version 2.3+) on your target script, with setting WriteMetaCode=True (see '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>), then close CodeScanner. Start CodeCrypter press the Source button to load your target file enable Write MCF0 (tick the first option in Main Settings) Enable "Encrypt" (last option in the Main Settings) Go to the Tab Encrypt and set up the encryption the way you want (skip this = use default settings) Return to Main Tab and press "Run" if all goes well, a new script called MCF0test.au3 is created in the same directory as your target. It has no includes and no redundant parts. Please check that it works as normal. (see Remarks if not) It all sounds far more complicated than it is, really.
      Not convinced? Check out this updated and extended Q & A pdf (FAQ, also included in the bundle) to help you get started:
      CodeCrypterFAQ.pdf
       
      BackTranslation is a test to check that the MetaCode translation worked. Skip it at your peril. It also turns your multi-include composite script into a single portable file without redundant parts (you can opt to leave the redundant parts in, if you want).
      CodeCrypter can also obfuscate (vars and UDF names) and replace strings, variable names and UDF names with anything else you provide, for  example, for language translation). After CodeScanner separates your target's structure from its contents, CodeCrypter (actually MCF, under the hood) can change any part, and then generate a new script from whichever pieces you define. See the MCF Tutorial for more explanation and examples.
       
      Important!
      You need the following additional scripts to get anything to work (now all included in the bundle):
      CodeScanner.au3 version 2.9+ (in the CodeScanner zip in the CodeScanner thread, link above) readCSdatadump.au3 (version 1.1+, in the CodeScanner zip) MCF.au3 (version 1.3+, in the MCF zip in the MCF thread, link above) MCFinclude.au3 (version 1.1+, in the MCF zip) AES.au3, by Ward (now also included in bundle, thanks to Ward), see '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> As you can see, encryption currently relies on Ward excellent AES UDF, but you can replace this with any other algorithm you like; just edit MCFinclude.au3 UDF _MCFCC(), and MCF.au3 UDF _EncryptEntry().
      Going to lie down now...
