Amazon Translate Now Supports Customized Translations

Posted on: Nov 27, 2018

Amazon Translate is a fully managed neural-network based machine translation service that delivers high-quality, real-time, and affordable language translation. Today, we are introducing Custom Terminology, a feature that lets you customize Amazon Translate’s output to use company and domain-specific vocabulary. By uploading and invoking Custom Terminology with translation requests, you can ensure that your brand names, character names, model names, and other unique content get translated exactly the way you define it.  

Get started with Custom Terminology by reviewing the documentation pages to understand the formatting requirements to ensure your files are readable. After that, you can create and upload your terminology using the AWS Console or supported SDKs. Once your terminology file is accepted, you can make translation requests to the service coupled with Custom Terminology. When matches are found, the translation results will automatically replace applicable content with terminology entries.
