Extend your application’s reach
Translate text in your mobile, desktop and web applications to and from 60+ supported languages through the open REST interface of Translator API.
Automatically detect languages
Detect the language of any text string easily and accurately, simplifying development processes and allowing you to quickly send it for translation or serve localised content.
Transliterate into different alphabets
Display text in different alphabets to make it easier to read – Translate from Chinese characters to PinYin, display any of the supported transliteration languages in the Latin alphabet, and even show words written in the Latin alphabet in non-Latin characters such as Japanese, Hindi or Arabic.
Look up words with the bilingual dictionary
Find alternative translations for words from or to English and examples of the words in context to help your app users choose the most appropriate translation. Provide context for alternative word translations by giving examples of human translated sentences using the word.
Add online and offline translation support into your Android app
With the Microsoft Translator local feature, easily add on- and offline neural translation to your Android apps. Instead of calling the cloud API directly, perform a simple call to the Translator app to easily integrate text translation capabilities to your app. The app will then use the Translator cloud service when connected to the Internet or offline packs when disconnected, all using your existing Azure subscription for billing.
Build customised translation systems
Customise Microsoft Translator neural translation models to improve translation quality. Use your existing human-translated content to build a custom translation system that can better handle your writing style and industry expressions and vocabulary.
