Alternative In-line translation tools than Google Translator

Status : Merged
over 1 year ago

Within SMAX Application settings, you can enable the builtin Google Translator.

Unfortunately, some companies do not allow usage of the Google Translator service for various reasons.

Is it possible to link a different translation engine?


  • Thank you for sharing your idea! It’s open for comments and kudos, and we’re looking forward to input from the community. Once there is enough community traction, it will be further reviewed by the product team.

  • Hey Steve,

    I got your point. Maybe it is possible to design the inline translation functionality more generic, so that customers can switch their preferred translation API.

    However, in our case we are focusing on the Azure-hosted translation service named "Azure Cognitive Services -Microsoft Translator Text API".

  • Each additional translation service would require dedicated effort to support.  If you have a particular translation service you would like supported please update the description to specify it. 

    If this is a general request to support 'other' translation services, then I would decline the Idea.  We will not support any translation service.
