Nico Nico Douga (ニコニコ動画) Comment Translator
Quick start using Docker
The official Docker image is provided:
$ docker pull dahlia/nicovideo-translator
You need to provide a required environment variable
to use Google Translate API, and may want to set an optional environment
LANG which means the target language. The exposed port number is
$ docker run \ -e GOOGLE_TRANSLATE_API_KEY=EiP3NSgLid81OjSwpOMkgV0rzD9SLHRqwqUwx2r \ -e LANG=ko \ -p 80:8080 \ dahlia/nicovideo-translator
You can install it using
$ cabal install nicovideo-translator
nmsg.nicovideo.jp to localhost
To make the translator to intercept comments from Nico Nico comment server,
you have to alias Nico Nico comment server domain (
your localhost (
127.0.0.1). Open your hosts file using text editor
(you probably need administrator permission), and then add the following line:
The translator behaves as a proxy server, so it has to be running while you watch Nico Nico videos. You can invoke the proxy server using CLI (you probably need administrator permission to listen 80 port):
$ nicovideo-translator EiP3NSgLid81OjSwpOMkgV0rzD9SLHRqwqUwx2r Running on http://0.0.0.0:80/ (Press ^C to quit) Upstream: nmsg.nicovideo.jp (18.104.22.168)
Note that it takes a Google Translate API key as its first argument.
You can terminate the server by pressing Ctrl-C.
It can optionally take the target language which is a two-letter
$ nicovideo-translator -l ko
$ git clone git://github.com/dahlia/nicovideo-translator
