Amazon Translate is a neural machine translation service that delivers fast, high-quality, and affordable language translation. Today, we are announcing that Amazon Translate Batch Translation is now available in EU West 2 (London). Now, 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 in EU West 2 (London). 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 seven regions - US East 1 (Northern Virginia), US East 2 (Ohio), US West 2 (Oregon), EU West 1 (Ireland), EU West 2 (London), EU Central 1 (Frankfurt), and Asia Pacific North East 2 (Seoul). Now, AWS customers can reach a wider set of users in many geographies that are increasingly expecting to consume media and interact with organizations in the language of their choice. For a full list of regions Amazon Translate supports, refer to Global Infrastructure page.

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. 

Read the Amazon Translate documentation for more information on Command Line Interface (CLI) and AWS SDKs, particularly read the documentation on Asynchronous batch processing and get started on Batch Translation on Amazon Translate console.
