Backing up data in Google Workspace is very important for businesses…
Translation is an important function for many industries, whether it is a news media organization or a software company to ensure its documents are understood in a variety of languages. Therefore, many businesses are using it machine learning to help them translate faster and more effectively than ever before. Today, we are pleased to announce updates to our Cloud AI translation services, including the official release of AutoML Translation and enhanced features on the Translation API.
How customers use AutoML Translation
Since published AutoML Translation In beta in 2018, we saw customers using technology to build domain-specific translations into their workflows. One such example is Bloomberg, who are using it to give their analysts a competitive edge in a fast-growing industry. “It is extremely important for our customers to access information from anywhere,” said Ted Merz, global news product manager at Bloomberg LP. “We decided to add the ability for people around the world to see news translated into the language that is most helpful to them. Google's AutoML Translation has helped us improve translation fluency for financial terms and jargon, ensuring that stories about Bloomberg's First Word service can be delivered in real time.”
New Updates for Translation API
In addition to the general availability of AutoML Translation, we are also expanding how our customers can use our Translation API, by introducing advanced and basic versions of the API. By offering two versions, we give our customers the flexibility to choose the functionality that best serves their business needs.
The first version, Translation API Advanced, includes our latest feature updates for the Translation API. We will continue to build advanced features for this API such as Glossary (see image below) and model selection that have been launched this year. This API version is our Translation API v3 which debuted at Google Cloud Next and is now live.
Translation API Advanced will only support Service Accounts for authentication, so that client-managed resources can be protected with secure authentication. For a more detailed tutorial on developing with Translation API Advanced, check out the above post this blog.
One customer who reviewed Translation APIs is AllTrail, which helps people explore the outside world with a curated collection of detailed, curated trail maps as well as trail reviews and community images from over 10 million users. Now that Translation API Advanced is out, they're excited to bring it to production in their organization. “Trail and trail names can have multiple translations that can be correct in different contexts, and an incorrect translation can lead to a bad day on the road,” says James Graham, Head of Engineering at AllTrails. trail. We aim to use the Terminology feature on the Advanced Translation API to allow us to control the names of places in the translation results provided by Google's excellent machine translations.
The second version, Translation API Basic, is designed for customers integrating translation services into chat, social media, and gaming applications and makes our API as easy to use as possible. . Translation API Basic, the new name of the translation API v2, includes support for API keys and the simplicity and quality of the known API, and we will continue to deliver quality improvements to the translation API to support support our customers.
With this announcement, Translation API Advanced has joined Translation API Basic as the officially released service.
