Amazon Translate – a fully managed neural machine translation service that delivers high-quality, and affordable language translation in fifty-four languages – is now introducing Batch Translation. Starting today, customers have the option to translate a large collection of text or HTML documents stored in a folder in Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) bucket using the new asynchronous Batch Translation service. This is in addition to the real-time (synchronous) translation service that is already available, giving you options that best fit your needs.
Batch Translation is now available in six regions - US East 1 (Northern Virginia), US East 2 (Ohio), US West 2 (Oregon), EU West 1 (Ireland), EU Central 1 (Frankfurt), and Asia Pacific North East 2 (Seoul).
Asynchronous batch operations are particularly useful for translating very large collection of texts or HTML documents with one API call, when the application doesn't need a real-time response.
Our asynchronous Batch Translation service accepts a batch of up to 5 GB in size per API call with each document not exceeding 1 MB in size and the number of documents in the S3 bucket folder not exceeding 1 million per batch. See Guidelines and Limits for more details.
