Amazon Translate – a fully managed neural machine translation service that delivers high-quality, affordable, and customizable language translation in 71 languages and variants –now supports translation of XML Localization Interchange File Format – XLIFF documents. Starting today, customers can submit their XLIFF documents for batch processing by Amazon Translate. Amazon Translate only translates sections where the target segment is empty. If the target section contains non-empty strings or pre-translated strings, Amazon Translate will not modify or overwrite the translation. You only pay for what you translate. This feature allows customers to continue using Translation Memory to translate content prior to machine translation and keep the machine translation costs low.

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).
