Using the Microsoft Translation APIs from Java, Clojure, and JRuby

I wrote last July about my small bit of code on github that wrapped the Microsoft Bing Search APIs. I recently extended this to also wrap the Translation APIs using the open source project microsoft-translator-java-api project on Google Code. I just provide a little wrapper for the microsoft-translator-java-api project and if you are working in Java you should just use their library directly.

Hopefully this will save you some time if you need to use the translation services. The free tier for the translation services is currently 2 million characters translated per month.

thank you very much for your informative blogs.
I would like to read your thoughts/opnions about Google's GO programming language (GOLANG). I am surprised / curious that there is not a single mention about this language, although it exists since 2009. Is it worthwhile learning this language?

Hello Neil, I have played with the Go language, but I have never done any serious work with it - so, I can't really offer any useful opinions on Go.
