Today, we are excited to announce the addition of German and Latin American Spanish language support to Amazon Lex. Amazon Lex is a service for building conversational interfaces into any application using voice and text. Amazon Lex provides deep learning powered automatic speech recognition (ASR) for converting speech to text, and natural language understanding (NLU) to recognize the intent of the text, to enable you to build applications with highly engaging user experiences and lifelike conversational interactions.  

With these new languages, you can build and expand your conversational experiences to better understand and engage your customer base. Amazon Lex can be applied to a diverse set of use cases such as virtual agents, interactive voice response systems, self-service chatbots, or application bots.  

With these additional languages, Amazon Lex now supports ten languages including US English, Australian English, British English, French, Canadian French, German, Italian, Spanish, Latin American Spanish and US Spanish. To learn more, visit the Amazon Lex documentation page.
