Get Better Translations

Use your previously translated documents to build a translation system that respects your domain-specific terminology and style, better than a generic translation system. Hub supports TMX, XLIFF, TXT, HTML, DOCX, XLSX and PDF document formats. Make use of Microsoft's vast language knowledge in addition to your own documents.

Securely translate anytime, anywhere

Translation systems built with Hub are available through a cloud-based, high performance, highly scalable translation service that powers billions of translations every day. Your system can be seamlessly accessed and integrated into any product or business workflow, and on any device, via the Microsoft Translator API, which is available in SOAP, REST, AJAX, and OData flavors.

Tap into the wisdom of your crowd

Hub is integrated with Microsoft Translator’s Collaborative Translation Framework (CTF). Corrections, approvals, and votes are immediately fed into the Hub to continually improve your customized translation engines. Feedback and corrections submitted via the Translator Widget hosted on your website also feed the Hub, seamlessly improving the quality of your translations.

Build a system that knows your business lingo

Enterprises and language service providers can build translation systems that understand the terminology used in their own business and industry. This will enable more appropriate and better translation than generic translation systems can provide. Your customized system will then easily integrate into your existing applications, workflows and websites, across multiple types of devices, using the regular Microsoft Translator API, by using the category parameter.

Build translation systems for native and endangered languages

Governments, universities and language preservation communities can use the Hub to build translation systems between any pair of languages, including languages not yet supported by Microsoft Translator, and reduce communication barriers. With communications gaps removed, communities are empowered and business can serve their people. A new language can be easily kick-started and then improved over time with the support of an involved community regularly contributing to enriching the translation system.

Seamless integration across your organization’s workflows

Seamless integration of the Microsoft Translator API and CTF improves document translation workflow and enables immediate user feedback resulting in continuous improvements to the quality of translations. Translations from your custom translation systems built in Hub can be securely used in your organization workflows via Microsoft Translator APIs across any number of products and services, from Microsoft, 3rd parties, or your own custom development.

Global web presence

Drive your business, your brand and your customer communications globally with a secure, scalable and reliable machine translation service.

Made available through the cloud-based, high-performance, machine translation service, Microsoft Translator powers billions of translations every day while keeping your data private.
