Translate Text is an operation that provides access to Google Translate inside Dcipher Analytics for the purpose of machine translating text.

Step-by-step guide

1. Open the operation configuration window

Select the field with the text that you want to machine translate and click the "Add operation" button at the top of the workspace.

Search for "Translate text" or find the operation under "Content enrichment" and click it.

2. Name the output field

Under "Output field name", type the name of the output field.

3. Select the source language

In the "Source language" drop-down, select the language that you want to translate from. If your data consists of multiple languages, select "Auto-detect".

4. Select the target language

In the "Target language" drop-down, select the language that you want to translate to.

5. Estimate the cost

Google applies a fee based on text volume. This fee is calculated when clicking the "Estimate cost" button.

To reduce the cost, consider using the Preprocessing Wizard to remove duplicates and filter out long texts; the Sample operation to create a smaller dataset with a sample of data; or the Translate Words operation to translate extracted tokens, keywords, topics, etc rather than the entire body of the text.

6. Run the operation

Click "Apply" to run the operation. The machine-translated text is inserted into the output field.
