Amazon Translate – a fully managed neural machine translation service that delivers high-quality, and affordable language translation in fifty-five languages – is now supporting translation of Office open XML documents in docx, pptx, and xlsx format. Amazon Translate also increased the file size limit for each document in Batch Translation from 1 MB to 20 MB. Starting today, customers have the option to translate a large collection of docx, pptx, xlsx, HTML and plain text 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 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).
Our asynchronous Batch Translation service accepts a batch of up to 5 GB in size per API call with each document not exceeding 20 MB in size, number of characters in each document not exceeding 1 million, and the number of documents in the S3 bucket folder not exceeding 1 million per batch. See Guidelines and Limits for more details.
