A Translation Service is coming to your Site & App from Amazon

    Well, Amazon is going-one-on-one with Google and Microsoft Translation Service. Following the little success with their Home Assistant!

    According to CNBC, Amazon is working on an offering that would allow developers building apps and websites using AWS to translate their content to multiple languages.

    Amazon kicked off a competition in partnership with Heidelberg University in Germany to encourage the development of machine translation platforms that can respond and adapt to user feedback correcting mistakes in their translation results.

    Amazon already uses its own translation tech in-house to offer product documentation in various languages. The effort to build this out for developers is being led by Aron Levie, the co-founder of translation software firm Safaba

    The machine translation tech used to provide the multi-lingual versions of client products would be based on tech Amazon uses across its own products, the report claims.
