Lingva Translate is an alternative front-end for Google Translate, serving as a Free and Open Source translator with over a hundred languages available. Inspired by projects like Piped, Nitter, Invidious or Bibliogram, Lingva scrapes through Google Translate and retrieves the translation without directly accessing any Google-related service, preventing them from tracking. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Lingva Translate on your Synology NAS using Docker & Portainer.
Install Portainer using my step by step guide. If you already have Portainer installed on your Synology NAS, skip this STEP. Attention: Make sure you have installed the latest Portainer version.
Make sure you have a synology.me Wildcard Certificate. Follow my guide to get a Wildcard Certificate. If you already have a synology.me Wildcard certificate, skip this STEP.
Go to Control Panel / Login Portal / Advanced Tab / click Reverse Proxy. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Now click the “Create” button. Follow the instructions in the image below.
After you click the Create button, the window below will open. Follow the instructions in the image below.
On the General area, set the Reverse Proxy Name description: type in Lingva. After that, add the following instructions:
Check Enable HSTS
On the Reverse Proxy Rules click the Custom Header tab. Click Create and then, from the drop-down menu, click WebSocket. After you click on WebSocket, two Header Names and two Values will be automatically added. Click Save. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Go to Control Panel / Network / Connectivity tab/ Check Enable HTTP/2 then click Apply. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Go to Control Panel / Security / Advanced tab/ Check Enable HTTP Compression then click Apply. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Log into Portainer using your username and password. On the left sidebar in Portainer, click on Stacks then + Add stack. Follow the instructions in the image below.
In the Name field type in lingva. Follow the instructions in the image below.
version: "3.9" services: lingva: image: thedaviddelta/lingva-translate:latest container_name: Lingva-Translate hostname: lingva mem_limit: 2g cpu_shares: 768 security_opt: - no-new-privileges:true ports: - 6455:3000 environment: site_domain: lingva.yourname.synology.me force_default_theme: dark default_source_lang: auto default_target_lang: en restart: on-failure:5
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Web editor area below, change the value for site_domain and type in your own synology.me DDNS that you have previously created at STEP 6 without https:// at the beginning.
Scroll down on the page until you see a button named Deploy the stack. Click on it. Follow the instructions in the image below. The installation process can take up to a few minutes. It will depend on your Internet speed connection.
If everything goes right, you will see this message at the top right of your screen: “Success Stack successfully deployed“.
Go back to STEP 1 or you will deal with karma 🙂.
Now open your browser and type in your HTTPS/SSL certificate like this https://lingva.yourname.synology.me that you have previously created at STEP 6. In my case it’s https://lingva.mariushosting.synology.me Type in a text and choose the language in which you would like to translate it, then click the lightning button. Follow the instructions in the image below.
A hundred languages available!
Enjoy Lingva Translate!
