Faster Than Learning a New Language

What do you like best?

This product translates texts on sites quickly and accurately. The technology also recognizes texts and languages if you don't know exactly what language is shown - which is especially helpful for some of the image-based languages.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes slang isn't picked up appropriately, so the phrase becomes misconstrued, however it isn't necessarily that negative of an aspect when considering the overall sentiment is generally correct.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely give it a try! It's a great tool for breaking down language barriers, and will help connect you with others who are interested in your product or in your area of business, yet don't have the language to back it up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to communicate with other countries and employees with language barriers has been especially helpful utilizing Cloud Translation API. Becoming more personally connected to other employees and being able to connect with other businesses has been influential on our overall business.

Google Translate 2.0 API is way better than the Google Translate you remember.

What do you like best?

Updated to use TensorFlow Recurrent neural networks for translation, so you get Machine Translation with very competitive BLEU scores for select (mostly European) languages.

What do you dislike?

Customer support for Google Cloud (much like all Google products) is absolute garbage. It seems like there are a lot of well-meaning people, but they're stuck in rigid processes and terrible / slow email support patterns which make it impossible to actually help solve customer issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try out Google translate with large samples in the language pair(s) you're looking to use using the web interface (same engine that powers translate.google.com). Evaluate this to see if it meets your needs. Fails for most languages with technical vocabulary, or long / articulate passages. Passable for some use-cases.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Website translation for dynamic content / intermediate translation for pending translation items (programmatically via API)

What Natural Language Processing (NLP) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Cloud Translation helps tremendously while working with clients.

What do you like best?

I like how easy the platform is to use and how many options there are! It is as easy as a click of a button and scrolling. I used it with a client recently to translate a document for their personal paperwork.

What do you dislike?

It might take a while to find the language you need to use. There is a lot of scrolling and words that sometimes it hard to find what you need right away.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used it while working with clients from all over. Helps me connect with clients and get them what they need quicker. Lots of translating documents so the process with clients can be faster.

Works fine for translating simple words but not for translating complete sentences

What do you like best?

What I like most about this software is that I am able to pull it up on my phone or on my laptop within a few seconds. I also love the fact that words appear in the target language while you are still typing the the words from the source language.

I also like it how the program would list more than word in the target language as a possible solution.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the fact that sometimes the program seems to be inaccurate / incomplete. I work as a professional over the phone interpreter and many times i would use Google Translate.

This is especially true for medical translations. Many of the medical terminology is simply missing from Google Translate. For medical translations I would much rather make use of medical dictionaries that seem to be more accurate.

Also, I know that many would try using this program for translating full sentences. This might work for some languages, however due to the complexity of my language (Hungarian) this task seems to be near impossible for this program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

None

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As for problem solving it an inexpensive way of having words translated. The program offers great solutions for simple words or even phases. No need to call an interpreter or a translator to have your documents translated. At the same time you would need to keep in mind that this is only a partial solution and that for any major projects or even for official documents, such as certificates this cannot be an option.

Cloud Translation API

What do you like best?

What I like the most in the rapid response and platform integration. It works! dynamic translation in real time. Capable of translation in many languages conveniently in Spanish and French as well. Easy to deploy, program and execute.

What do you dislike?

It needs a some time for users to understand how it works and there is a learning curve for end users to acclimate with the products and develop a trust factor to what this product can do for them. trust is a very important factor.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Cloud Translation API to any organization looking to implement a source code solution that improve language translation and cloud infrastructure.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

High level of communication between end users and vendors, directors and customers. It is intuitive easy to code and leverage until different level platforms and applications. Worked with engineers to to write configuration to be used in the remote global locations.

Fully featured; does everything you need it to

What do you like best?

Does language detection and translation for pretty much every language you'd need.

What do you dislike?

Literally the only issue I've run into is with the terms of service. I wanted to use it to translate select phrases on my site into another language and it technically requires me to credit all those translations to Google. This restriction can by bypassed if I manually proof each translation (which is what I do), but it'd be easier if I could skip that for short phrases/incomplete sentences.

Recommendations to others considering the product

None. Easy to use and self explanatory.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Needed website content translated.
