Language identification and translation

The Watson Language Translation service provides domain-specific translation for several domains that provide translation for different languages. The current domains are:

  • News
    Translates English news articles and transcripts to and from Arabic, Brazilian Portuguese, French, Italian, or Spanish. It also translates Spanish to and from French.
  • Conversational
    Translates English conversational colloquialisms to and from Arabic, Brazilian Portuguese, French, Italian, or Spanish.
  • Patent
    Translates technical and legal terminology from Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, Korean, or Spanish to English.

Check the IBM Watson documentation for a current list of domains and languages.

In the lab for this section, you’ll add a simple translation service that’s not related to a specific domain.
