The service provides localization functions to translate web pages, documents, and other text between European languages. Applications can specify both source and output languages from a comprehensive list and choose preferred translation sources.
API methods support submission of a text selection along with source language and target (or output) language. Requests can also specify the minimum and maximum number of alternative translations to be provided, giving control of the balance between accuracy and performance where large translation sets are available. Requests can also specify the knowledge or activity domain of the text selection, helping to target translations relevant to those areas.
