Amazon Translate is a neural machine translation service that delivers fast, high-quality, affordable, and customizable language translation. Today, we are announcing the general availability of real time document translation feature that allows customers to translate HTML and Text documents in real time. Until today, to translate documents in real time, customers had to extract the text, translate the text into the target language, and post-process the translated text to convert it into the original file format. With the new real time document translation feature there is no need for any pre-processing or post-processing steps. Customers can use APIs or the AWS console to submit a translation request and receive documents back with source formatting intact.

At launch this feature will support HTML and Text file formats, with English as the source or target language, and document size up to 100KB. This feature is available in 16 commercial AWS regions at launch. To learn more, please read the Amazon Translate documentation on synchronous document translation
