Translating murals using the MURAL API and IBM Watson Language Translator

Hi, everybody.

I've been enjoying the new MURAL API, this year! A recent project involved translating English sticky notes into French. The basic flow is straightforward:

  1. Read the widgets from the mural using the MURAL API
  2. Translate the text using Language Translator (an IBM Cloud service)
  3. For each English sticky note in the mural, post a French version using the MURAL API

Sample Python notebook: Translating sticky notes

Here's a link to a more complete description, plus a video explaining the steps: Multilingual MURAL

Is anyone else translating murals too? I'd be interested to hear about other translation use cases - so I can make up some more samples. 😀



  • Hi Spackows,

    thanks a lot for this great tool. I have two similar usecases.

    1. I'd be interested in translating mindmaps.
    2. I'd be interested in using an adapted version of the tool for spell-checking.

    Do you have any advise?

    If you are interested in further developing your tool, I´d be glad to provide sample worksheets.

    Kind regards
