How to Translate Text with JavaScript?

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use Automatic Translation API in 5 minutes using JavaScript. Eden AI provides an easy and developer-friendly API that allows you to translate your texts.

What is Automatic Translation?

Machine Translation, also known as Automatic Translation, is the process of translating text from one language to another without human involvement.

Translation is becoming increasingly important for businesses that have products or applications used by a global audience. These translated texts are often used with other Natural Language Processing tools such as Sentiment Analysis, Keyword Extraction, or Text Summarization.

Developers often need to create websites that can translate text into multiple languages. Eden AI's Automatic Translation API allows for quick translation of a text into another language, with a simple interface for dynamic translation of any supported language. It can also be used to identify the language of a text when the source language is unknown.
