Amazon Translate

Natural and fluent language translation

Amazon Translate is a neural machine translation service that delivers fast, high-quality, and affordable language translation. Neural machine translation is a form of language translation automation that uses machine learning and deep learning models to deliver more accurate and more natural sounding translation than traditional statistical and rule-based translation algorithms. Amazon Translate allows you to easily translate large volumes of text efficiently, and to localize websites and applications for international users. 

AWS re:Invent 2017 Introducing Amazon Translate


Highly Accurate & Constantly Learning

Amazon Translate is the only service that offers 100% neural machine translation for all supported languages. The translation engine is always learning from new and expanded datasets to produce more accurate and fluent translations for a wide range of use cases.

Easy to Integrate into Your Applications

Amazon Translate removes the complexity of building real-time and batch translation capabilities into your applications with a simple API call. This makes it easy to localize an application or web site, or process multilingual data within your existing workflows.


Whether it’s just a few words or large volumes of text, Amazon Translate scales easily as your translation needs grow. The service provides consistently fast and reliable translations, regardless of the volume of translation requests you make.

Machine Translation Use Cases

Accelerate web localization efforts

Provide just-in-time translation of user-generated content

Add real-time translation for communications applications

Amazon Translate can help fast-track your web localization projects. Starting the localization workflow with automated translation, linguists can focus their time on validating and refining the content for technical accuracy and cultural sensitivity. By applying Amazon Translate with human post-editing, you can achieve greater efficiency and scale at reduced costs.

It’s very difficult for human translation teams to keep up with dynamic or real-time content. With Amazon Translate, you can easily translate massive volumes of user-generated content in real-time. Social networks can automatically translate content such as feed stories, profile descriptions, and comments posted in different languages to the user's preferred language with a click of the “translate” button.

Amazon Translate can provide on-demand translation for your applications to enable cross-lingual communications between users. By adding real-time translation to chat, email, helpdesk, and ticketing applications, an English-speaking agent or employee can communicate with customers across multiple languages.
