One of these solutions is a new translation system deploying neural machine translation technology (through AWS Translate models) that aims to support high-quality, real-time translations for up to 39 languages. By applying automated translations to text-based customer service channels (e-mail, chat, and Message Us), the product’s vision is to remove language as a barrier and enable flexibility in the CS labor force. Ultimately, Amazon will be capable of supporting customers anywhere around the world, irrespective of the language the CSA is speaking.
