Cloud & apps go bilingual with Bluemix translation

News: Open source software includes machine translation.

By James Nunns

Developers are being given a helping hand to make it easier to expand their apps to international markets.

The IBM Globalisation Pipeline, which is available on the company’s cloud platform, is designed to allow developers to automatically translate cloud and mobile apps into nine languages.

The service which is now available in beta on Bluemix will support English as the base language with nine others including; French, German, Spanish, Brazilian, Portuguese, Italian, Japanese, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, and Korean.

Features of the service include machine translation combined with human post-editing capabilities, and open source software development kits. These kits are designed to allow developers to update translations without having to rebuild or deploy the apps.

The service will integrate into a company’s app building and design processes and will automatically translate all text seen by an app’s user.

Bluemix was launched in 2014 with a $1bn investment and contains over 120 tools and services.
