About Translation APIs

Translation APIs allow developers to add beneficial cloud translation services into their applications without the need to store massive amounts of data. This capability reduces web and application file sizes and opens up apps for client bases that do not speak or read the native language in which it is built.

What is a Translation API?

Translation APIs allow for the translation of text between applications and on web pages. These APIs break down language barriers and open up new markets for apps.

How does a Translation API work?

A translation API has two endpoints. One of these detects while the other translates. Some APIs are simple in that they focus on one-word translations. At the same time, other more robust APIs have the ability to translate entire pages of texts or bodies of work into upwards of 100 different languages from the source.

Who can benefit from Translation APIs?

Any developer that wishes to expand the market base of their application, site, or project can benefit by offering translation capabilities.

Likewise, consumers have more options available to them when resources that are not in their native language can be translated from the source language into one they understand.

Finally, translation APIs power applications that help people learn a new language.

Why are Translation APIs necessary?

The world is a diverse place. Currently, there are over 6,500 spoken languages. Even though around 2,000 of them only have approximately 1,000 people that use them regularly, that still leaves well over four thousand in use today. Mandarin leads the world in native speakers, while English tops the charts when factoring in second, third, and higher language speakers.

Many popular translator APIs can handle translating into the top 100 languages, which breaks down the communication barriers for most of the world’s population.

What can you expect from a Translation API?

A translation API should be cleanly coded and provide fast and accurate interpretations from one language to the next. If it is meant to translate phrases or larger bodies of text, the original text’s context should translate cleanly to the requested language without a loss of meaning.
