Translating Text Using the AWS SDK for Python (Boto)

The following example demonstrates using the TranslateText operation in Python. To run it, you must first install Amazon Translate via the AWS CLI. For instructions, see Step 2: Set Up the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI).

Copy
import boto3 translate = boto3.client(service_name='translate', region_name='region', endpoint_url='endpoint', use_ssl=True) result = translate.translate_text(Text="Hello, World", SourceLanguageCode="en", TargetLanguageCode="de") print('TranslatedText: ' + result.get('TranslatedText')) print('SourceLanguageCode: ' + result.get('SourceLanguageCode')) print('TargetLanguageCode: ' + result.get('TargetLanguageCode'))

You can change the source and target languages subject to the following constraints:

  • If the source language is English, you can translate the source text to any of the other supported languages. For a list of supported languages, see How It Works.

  • If the source language is not English, the target language must be English.
