Fast, Dynamic Translation

Translation API provides a simple programmatic interface for translating an arbitrary string into any supported language using state-of-the-art Neural Machine Translation. Translation API is highly responsive, so websites and applications can integrate with Translation API for fast, dynamic translation of source text from the source language to a target language (e.g., French to English). Language detection is also available in cases where the source language is unknown. The underlying technology pushes the boundary of Machine Translation and is updated constantly to seamlessly improve translations and introduce new languages and language pairs.

Translate Many Languages

Translation API supports more than one hundred different languages, from Afrikaans to Zulu. Used in combination, this enables translation between thousands of language pairs.

Language Detection

Sometimes you don’t know your source text language in advance. For example, user generated content might not contain a language code. Translation API can automatically identify languages with high accuracy.

Simple Integration

Translation API is an easy to use Google REST API. You don’t have to extract text from your document, just send it HTML documents and get back translated text.

Highly Scalable

Translation API can seamlessly scale with almost any volume. We provide a generous daily quota and allow you to set limits below that amount. If a higher quota is needed, you can simply request an increase.

Simple, Affordable Pricing

Translation API charges on a per character basis, even if the character is multiple bytes. Our prices are affordable, making Translation API a low cost localization solution compared to alternative methods.
