Machine Translation (MT) is a cost-effective way of translating content at a rapid speed. Traditionally, MT has been a mechanical, rule-based substitution of words in a source language to a target, but advances in deep learning and machine learning have yielded more advanced, high-quality translation performance.
MT Providers and Support Languages
Smartling integrates with the following Machine Translation engines:
- Amazon Translate | Supported Languages

To connect your Smartling account to an MT engine, you will first need to activate an account with one of the above providers. Please contact your CSM for more details.
MT Profiles are a collection of configurations for your MT engines used in Smartling. You can create an MT Profile to store a key, then assign that profile to different workflows. You can also use your MT credentials in the CAT Tool by designating an MT Profile. Furthermore, you can add an MT optimized glossary to any MT Profile, so that your glossary terms are used in your machine translations.
