Languages supported for translation

Sendbird’s message auto-translation and on-demand features are powered by Google Cloud Translation API recognition engine. The following table shows the languages and codes that Google Cloud engine supports.

Note: Message translation through the Microsoft Translator engine is no longer available. All Sendbird applications that used the engine have been migrated and are now supported by Google Cloud Translation engine.
