Amazon Translate users can tap 22 new languages and variants from a total of 54 languages and dialects, with 2,804 language pairs supported
(Tech) Translate users can tap 22 new languages and variants from a total of 54 languages and dialects, with 2,804 language pairs supported. That’s up from 417 supported pairs in November 2018 and 987 pairs in October (across 25 languages), putting Translate ahead of rival offerings like Baidu Translate (which supports 16 languages) and nearly on par with Google Cloud Translation (over 100 languages and thousands of language pairs) and Microsoft Translator (over 60 languages).
The new languages are: Afrikaans, Albanian, Amharic, Azerbaijani, Bengali, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Dari, Estonian, Canadian French, Georgian, Hausa, Latvian, Pashto, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Somali, Swahili, Tagalog, and Tamil.
Additionally, Translate this morning expanded to six new AWS server regions, bringing the total number of regions to 17 from three regions two years ago. Now customers can use it in U.S. West (Northern California), Europe (London, Stockholm, and Paris), and Asia Pacific (Hong Kong and Sydney) to translate data in the location where it’s stored, without having to invoke Translate in another region.
More recently, Amazon launched Textract - a cloud-hosted and fully managed service that uses machine learning to parse data tables, forms, and whole pages for text and data - in general availability. And Amazon Transcribe, Amazon’s automatic speech recognition service that lets developers add speech-to-text capabilities to their applications, added 7 additional languages.
