import-terminology

Description

Creates or updates a custom terminology, depending on whether one already exists for the given terminology name. Importing a terminology with the same name as an existing one will merge the terminologies based on the chosen merge strategy. The only supported merge strategy is OVERWRITE, where the imported terminology overwrites the existing terminology of the same name.

If you import a terminology that overwrites an existing one, the new terminology takes up to 10 minutes to fully propagate. After that, translations have access to the new terminology.

Options

--name (string)

The name of the custom terminology being imported.

--merge-strategy (string)

The merge strategy of the custom terminology being imported. Currently, only the OVERWRITE merge strategy is supported. In this case, the imported terminology will overwrite an existing terminology of the same name.

Possible values:

  • OVERWRITE

--description (string)

The description of the custom terminology being imported.

--terminology-data (structure)

The terminology data for the custom terminology being imported.

Format -> (string)

The data format of the custom terminology.

Directionality -> (string)

The directionality of your terminology resource indicates whether it has one source language (uni-directional) or multiple (multi-directional).

UNI

The terminology resource has one source language (for example, the first column in a CSV file), and all of its other languages are target languages.

MULTI

Any language in the terminology resource can be the source language or a target language. A single multi-directional terminology resource can be used for jobs that translate different language pairs. For example, if the terminology contains English and Spanish terms, it can be used for jobs that translate English to Spanish and Spanish to English.

When you create a custom terminology resource without specifying the directionality, it behaves as uni-directional terminology, although this parameter will have a null value.

Shorthand Syntax:

Format=string,Directionality=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "Format": "CSV"|"TMX"|"TSV",
  "Directionality": "UNI"|"MULTI"
}

--encryption-key (structure)

The encryption key for the custom terminology being imported.

Type -> (string)

The type of encryption key used by Amazon Translate to encrypt this object.

Id -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the encryption key being used to encrypt this object.

Shorthand Syntax:

Type=string,Id=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "Type": "KMS",
  "Id": "string"
}

--tags (list) (structure)

Key -> (string)

Value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--data-file (blob)

The path to the file of the code you are uploading. Example: fileb://data.csv

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To import a custom terminology from a file

The following import-terminology example creates a terminology called MyTestTerminology from the test-terminology.csv file:

aws translate import-terminology \
    --name MyTestTerminology \
    --description "Creating a test terminology in AWS Translate" \
    --merge-strategy OVERWRITE \
    --data-file fileb://test-terminology.csv \
    --terminology-data Format=CSV

Contents of test-terminology.csv:

en,fr,es,zh Hello world!,Bonjour tout le monde!,Hola Mundo!,???? Amazon,Amazon,Amazon,Amazon

Output:

{
    "TerminologyProperties": {
        "SourceLanguageCode": "en",
        "Name": "MyTestTerminology",
        "TargetLanguageCodes": [
            "fr",
            "es",
            "zh"
        ],
        "SizeBytes": 97,
        "LastUpdatedAt": 1571089500.851,
        "CreatedAt": 1571089500.851,

Warning

Amazon Translate doesn't scan all input files for the risk of CSV injection attacks.

CSV injection occurs when a .csv or .tsv file is altered so that a record contains malicious code. The record begins with a special character, such as =, +, -, or @. When the file is opened in a spreadsheet program, the program might interpret the record as a formula and run the code within it.

Before you download an input file from Amazon S3, ensure that you recognize the file and trust its creator.
