Amazon Translate is a fully managed, neural machine translation service that delivers real-time, high-quality, affordable and customizable language translation. Today, we are announcing that Amazon Translate has increased the size limit of parallel data (PD) from 1 GB to 5 GB. PD is used in Active Custom Translation (ACT), a feature that gives you more control over your machine translation output. You create PD by simply providing your translation examples in TMX, TSV, or CSV format. Then Amazon Translate uses your PD along with your batch translation job to customize the translation output at runtime. With the increase in PD size, you can use more data to customize your ACT output.

ACT is available in Europe West (Ireland), US East (Northern Virginia), and US West (Oregon). You can find step-by-step instructions in this “How to use Amazon Translate’s Active Custom Translation” post. For more information on Amazon Translate ACT, see Amazon Translate documentation.
