FAQ about Abstract's
Language Translation API

What is API translation?

An API translation service is a way of enabling ‘machine’ translation of text. It enables you to incorporate real-time translation of text into their products. This can be vital in enabling you to serve global markets.

How does a translation API work?

By using an API, you’re able to connect in real time to a dedicated translation service. This means that no data needs to be stored locally which releases you from ensuring that the data is up to date. The API will always be sourcing up to date data.

What are the features of the Translation API?

The key features are real time bi-directional translation of text in more than 80 languages. Abstract’s Translation API is a REST API. It can be implemented in languages including Python, JAVA and more.

Is it difficult to implement the Translation API?

Not at all. Clients have found that our API is so easy to implement that they can go live in just 24 hours.

What does the Translation API do?

Abstract's Language Translation API provides developers with a fast and reliable translation API that can be accessed through a REST API. The API takes a given text and returns its translation in over 80+ languages.

Where does the data for the Translation API come from?

Abstract works with a variety of public and private data sources. These data are constantly processed to feed a translation ML model that provides a best-in-class, fast and accurate translation technology. It connects to sources combined with a proprietary machine learning translation model to ensure accurate bi-directional translation in more than 80 languages.

Is there a free translation API?

Yes, our free translation API can serve 500 API requests per month at a maximum of one per second. This means that you’ll be able to implement services that depend upon translation without bearing any cost. It may also be possible to serve some light, non-commercial use cases at this tier.

But is it expensive if my needs scale above the free API limits?

No. For just $9 per month, Abstract’s Translation API can support up to 55,000 API requests per month at up to 500 per second. This means that you’ll be able to focus on scaling your business without worrying about excessive additional costs.
