Machine translation - Google Translate

This service uses the Google Translate API to translate text. Google Translate is a paid service.

Character limit

This service has a 2000 character limit for every translation request. When translating pages, the service submits the content of every field and editable region as a separate unit, so the total number of characters per page is not restricted.

  1. Sign in to the Google APIs console using a Google account.
  2. Create a new project and activate the Translate API service.
