    Translation engine

    Sendbird’s message auto-translation and on-demand features are powered by Google Cloud Translation API's recognition engine. The recognition engine supports a wide variety of languages for the Neural Machine Translation (NMT) model.

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