GroupDocs.Translation offers real-time machine translation for texts, documents, images and resources. Powerful machine learning algorithms and sophisticated neural networks provide a quality close to that of a professional human translator, but much faster and more cost-effective. Running on a high-performance cloud server hosted by GroupDocs, it can translate PDF, Microsoft Office and OpenOffice documents, Markdown files, images and .NET resources into 46 European, Middle East and Asian languages (across 128 language pairs). The API not only translates text, but also accurately preserves metadata, structure, styles, and layout of documents.

The service provides a versatile and easy-to-use REST API, which can be accessed without installing any software. Just use cURL commands and combine them into scripts for complex tasks. You can also use third party REST API tools like Postman. This allows you to use GroupDocs.Translation on any platform with an internet connection, even those not yet covered by the SDK.
