Background

Machine Translation is a language service project that Alibaba launched in 2011, with the objectives of building a world-leading e-commerce machine translation engine and providing multi-language technological infrastructure for enterprises’ multi-language services. The cross-border trade within Alibaba involves a large number of cross-language issues. The requirements of cost, efficiency, and real-time performance cannot be met if the vast amount of information is simply dependent on artificial translation. In this context, machine translation is particularly important. Alibaba Cloud Machine Translation provides excellent service capabilities throughout the entire e-commerce link, including a comprehensive real-time translation service capability in the basic data fields of e-commerce, such as search engine optimization (SEO), search, product titles, product details (categories, attributes, and descriptions), commodity review, real-time communication, and review risk control. It addresses the basic information access requirements of users in various countries, and offers nearly 1 billion online translation services every day, together with the sentence translation capability reaching tens of thousands of queries per second (QPS). After years of experience accumulation and with the cutting-edge natural language processing technology and massive Internet data, Alibaba successfully launched its attention-based deep neural machine translation (NMT), helping users cross the language divide, share and access information smoothly, and achieve barrier-free communication. With massive data accumulation and key technological innovation, Alibaba Cloud Machine Translation achieves superior quality in the e-commerce field.If you buy resource packages now, you can enjoy a quantity discount and a free monthly quota of 1 million characters.
