I want to create a adaptive language teaching program that translates between two languages without using API but using google n-gram. Any ideas how to go about that?

Good look with that one!

I think it will be quite hard to do in a standalone application, especially if you are a single developer.

It's not to be a pessimist, but Google Translate and Bing Translation both have large (enormous?) companies behind them.

But IF you want to try, the easiest at first would probably be to have some kind of substitution dictionary between the languages. This however does not take into account, phrases specific to each language and simple things like pluralis, singularis and so on. "Inversion" is also going to be quite a problem quite fast with this approach.

My 5. I would add that the present-day quality of translation is ridiculous, at least for some languages. No teaching can rely upon it. The quality strongly vary by language though.
