  • Amazon Translate uses a Translation Model that consists of two (2) components:
    • Encoder
      • Read a source text one word at a time.
      • Creates a semantic representation of each word.
    • Decoder
      • Uses the constructed semantic representation of the encoded text and translates it to the target language one word at a time.

  • When Automatic Language Detection is enabled, Amazon Translate uses Amazon Comprehend on the backend to automatically detect the language used in the source text.
