Hello experts,
 I am looking for a clean way to :
- retrieve google search results
- translate texts with google translation tool

I know I can do it the "dirty way": parsing results (and parsing will have to be changed in case google modifies his tagsà , but is there a ready to go interface ? like APIs ?

    As for searching, if found this after a little googling:

    Usage is free for all users, up to 100 queries per day.

    So, should you plan to go beyond that, probably it is not in Google's interests to provide your application with the same search capability unless it gets paid.

    And, from a personal experience, sometimes google redirects a search attempt made via the web interface to some captcha based human identification to ensure it is not a "program" that makes the actual search. But maybe it only applies in case of frequent downloads, I came upon this one while searching for a bug, and it was like that then.
