Name Description Default Type

accessKey (producer)

Amazon AWS Access Key

String

autodetectSourceLanguage (producer)

Being able to autodetect the source language

false

boolean

lazyStartProducer (producer)

Whether the producer should be started lazy (on the first message). By starting lazy you can use this to allow CamelContext and routes to startup in situations where a producer may otherwise fail during starting and cause the route to fail being started. By deferring this startup to be lazy then the startup failure can be handled during routing messages via Camel’s routing error handlers. Beware that when the first message is processed then creating and starting the producer may take a little time and prolong the total processing time of the processing.

false

boolean

operation (producer)

Required The operation to perform

TranslateOperations

proxyHost (producer)

To define a proxy host when instantiating the Translate client

String

proxyPort (producer)

To define a proxy port when instantiating the Translate client

Integer

region (producer)

The region in which Translate client needs to work. When using this parameter, the configuration will expect the capitalized name of the region (for example AP_EAST_1) You’ll need to use the name Regions.EU_WEST_1.name()

String

secretKey (producer)

Amazon AWS Secret Key

String

translateClient (producer)

To use a existing configured AWS Translate as client

AmazonTranslate

basicPropertyBinding (advanced)

Whether the endpoint should use basic property binding (Camel 2.x) or the newer property binding with additional capabilities

false

boolean

camel.component.aws-translate.configuration.proxy-port

To define a proxy port when instantiating the Translate client

Integer

camel.component.aws-translate.configuration.region

The region in which Translate client needs to work. When using this parameter, the configuration will expect the capitalized name of the region (for example AP_EAST_1) You’ll need to use the name Regions.EU_WEST_1.name()

String

camel.component.aws-translate.configuration.secret-key

Amazon AWS Secret Key

String

Boolean

camel.component.aws-translate.region

The region in which Translate client needs to work

String

camel.component.aws-translate.secret-key

Amazon AWS Secret Key

String

Required EKS component options

You have to provide the amazonTranslateClient in the Registry or your accessKey and secretKey to access the Amazon Translate service.

Usage

Message headers evaluated by the Translate producer

Header Type Description

CamelAwsTranslateSourceLanguage

String

The text source language

CamelAwsTranslateTargetLanguage

String

The text target language

CamelAwsTranslateOperation

String

The operation to perform

Translate Producer operations

Camel-AWS Translate component provides the following operation on the producer side:

  • translateText

Automatic detection of AmazonTranslate client in registry

The component is capable of detecting the presence of an AmazonTranslate bean into the registry. If it’s the only instance of that type it will be used as client and you won’t have to define it as uri parameter. This may be really useful for smarter configuration of the endpoint.

Translate Text example

from("direct:start")
  .setHeader(TranslateConstants.SOURCE_LANGUAGE, TranslateLanguageEnum.ITALIAN)
  .setHeader(TranslateConstants.TARGET_LANGUAGE, TranslateLanguageEnum.GERMAN)
  .setBody("Ciao")
  .to("aws-translate://test?translateClient=#amazonTranslateClient&operation=translateText");

As result you’ll get an exchange containing the translated text.

Dependencies

Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml.

pom.xml

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.camel</groupId>
    <artifactId>camel-aws-translate</artifactId>
    <version>${camel-version}</version>
</dependency>

where ${camel-version} must be replaced by the actual version of Camel.
