What is translation service?
Knowledge Center can use 3rd-party translation APIs to enable authors with a capability to automatically translate the content of knowledge documents from one language to another.
Authors can translate the whole document or just particular fields of the document. Automated translation allows using state-of-the-art Neural Machine Translation (NMT) to simplify an authors work by avoiding routine translation done by computer. The Author is able to review and edit pre-translated content before saving.
