With Amazon Translate, you pay-as-you-go based on the number of characters of text that you processed. It’s easy to get started with the Amazon Translate Free Tier. Translate up to 2M characters monthly - free for the first 12 months, starting from your first translation request.


Free Tier

2 million characters per month for 12 months

The Free Tier is available to you for 12 months, starting from the date on which you create your first translation request. When your free usage expires, or if your application use exceeds the free usage tier, you simply pay standard, pay-as-you-go service rates.
