Lingohub's machine translation feature combines three robust engines - DeepL, Google Translate, and Amazon Translate; altogether, they cover over one hundred languages. You can see which engines were used for your translation by hovering on the gears icon.
How to use Machine Translation in the Editor to translate your text segments?
With a Focus view, you can select the segment, and machine translation will provide the translation for the target language. The machine translation results will be updated depending on the source text when switching between segments. Add the translation to the row by clicking on the translated text in the editor context panel or using the shortcut Ctrl+1.
Find the entire list of shortcuts on the interface's bottom-left side, as shown in the image below.
You can change source and target languages by clicking the gear icon (1). The target also will be automatically adjusted if you switch to another language by clicking the arrow near the language title (2).
You can easily switch between the machine translation languages in the table view by clicking on the appropriate cell. Lingohub automatically detects which language this cell relates to and adjusts the settings. You can manage the languages by yourself as well as inside the focus view.
How to use Machine Translation for custom search?
Use the Lingohub machine translation feature for custom translations.
Note: this action doesn't affect text segments by itself, but you can add the translation results to the segment by clicking on it or using shortcut Ctrl+1
The custom search will activate if you change the source language for translation or type any text in the machine translation field. To come back to the standard machine translation click on "Clear custom search."
How can the Style Guides feature affect the Machine Translation suggestions?
Machine translation suggestions are also based on your style guide's formality requirements. Connecting the style guide to your project gives you access to a more detailed and tailored machine translation service with more concrete and accurate recommendations.
Note: You can use MT with the Prefill feature to automatically fill empty text segments. Read our article about Prefill to learn how to start the process.
