Alibaba Cloud empowers the user experience with a neural network translation (NMT) system through the Machine Translation service during online real-time events like conference videos, training courses, and more.
Alibaba Cloud has developed a deep neural network translation (NMT) system based on the attention mechanism called Machine Translation. It can decode a single sentence and translate the result. The service is available in e-commerce and universal edition. The e-commerce-linked services with basic data fields provide high-quality e-commerce translation between English and Chinese, Spanish, Russian, French, Portuguese, Arabic, Thai, Turkish, Vietnamese, Indonesian, and other languages. This includes SEO, searches, product titles, product details, product comments, instant messaging, and risk control. The universal edition provides high-quality translation between Chinese and English. It adopts Alibaba's advanced neural network translation model and works for daily communication, traveling abroad, and more.
Machine translation eliminates language barriers in most scenarios. It supports up to 243 translation language pairs and offers some benefits and advantages:
Machine translation can be used in various scenarios:

Two services are now available. This means you can use them without worrying about extra billing:
You can go to the Test Center menu to try the translation process. You can select the General Edition or Professional Engine for the e-commerce edition. In our case, we made a test with the General Edition. The input language was English, and the output language was French. After a test, you can see that the statistic has also changed:
Let's explore the OpenAPI environment to learn more about the API used for machine translation:
The OpenAPI page will open. Select Artificial Intelligence and then _Machine translate_:
This will bring you to the machine translate API homepage:
