Amazon Translate is a neural machine translation service that delivers fast, high-quality, and affordable language translation. The Translate API is now an AWS HIPAA Eligible Service. If you have a Business Associate Addendum (BAA) in place with AWS, you can immediately start using Amazon Translate to translate texts containing protected health information (PHI). If you do not have a BAA in place with AWS or have any other questions about running HIPAA-regulated workloads on AWS, please contact us.

HIPAA Eligibility applies to all AWS Regions where Amazon Translate is available. See the Architecting for HIPAA Security and Compliance on Amazon Web Services Whitepaper for information and best practices about how to configure AWS HIPAA Eligible Services to store, process, and transmit PHI.
