Sendbird's auto-translation feature lets you send text messages in different languages. When sending a text message, set an array of language codes to the
UserMessageCreateParams object, then pass the object as an argument to a parameter in the
sendUserMessage() method to request messages to be translated into the desired languages. With this, you can add a real-time translation feature to your app. To enable this feature, contact our sales team.
Note: Sendbird's message auto-translation feature is powered by Google Cloud Translation API recognition engine. You can find the language codes supported by the engine in the translation engine page. You can also visit the language Support page in Google Cloud Translation.
To show the translated messages, use the
userMessage.translations property, which has a
Map object containing the language codes and translations as shown in the code below.
