The service provides both synchronous and asynchronous translation of submitted text samples, either via machine algorithms or human translators. It includes functions to integrate with other translation services for comparison and selection of the best result. In addition to direct document translation, the service facilitates machine-to-machine exchanges for multilingual interactions across systems.
API methods support submission of a translation order with the text passage included or referenced via URL, TMX file, or plain text file. A request also gives the input language, desired output language, and requested schedule. Methods can return machine translation directly or initiate a human translation workflow. Methods also support status summaries and checks to determine the point in a process that a specific request has reached.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at email@example.com
So far, we don't have a record of any changes to this API
