Help build a script to use google translate with multiple files

Hey there,

I run an active message board in Portuguese. I'd like to find a way to automatically translate posts from Portuguese to English.

The file structure is all pretty simple. Posts are saved in flat files with pipe delimiters for fields (username | subject | datestamp | IP | message). One post per line. Each topic is saved as a new file that's ordered numerically... like [url removed, login to view], then [url removed, login to view] etc.

All I need translated is the subject and the message.

I'd like a system for going back and translating older topics as well as a cron system for checking for new posts and translating them as well.

The result would be the same file structure, but in a new folder.

Let me know if you have any other questions with this one.



I'm ok doing this with another translation tool outside of google as well. Just let me know what you're thinking.
