Why do I need this?

Think of all the files on your computer, around your office, at your company. As your company expands globally, your organization must be able to transfer knowledge across regions by translating information into regional languages. Human translation alone can be expensive and time-consuming. That is why organizations today are beginning to adopt machine translation capabilities; however, other translation services require developers to build in functions for generating new documents for business professionals.

Document Translation (Beta) with Watson Language Translator reduces your development time and complexity. Instead of focusing on how to seamlessly format documents once they are translated, let Watson do it. Now you can get translated documents into the hands of professionals more rapidly, improving the translation process and business efficiency.
