PointFire Power Translator is Released
Posted by Martin Laplante on 18 September 2018 01:17 PM

After nearly a year in Beta, PointFire Power Translator (formerly called Batch Translator) is available.

PointFire Power Translator can translate individual items or entire libraries or lists in SharePoint Online.  It handles modern pages as well as classic ones.  It also handles several other file types.  It differs from PointFire Translator in several respects

  • It is command line, using CMD or PowerShell, not a SharePoint add-in
  • It uses the Microsoft Cognitive Services Translator Text API, not the now-deprecated SharePoint Translator Service
  • It requires a Translator Text API key
  • It defaults to using the latest neural network translation models, but can use a variety of machine translation engines, including ones that you train using your own documents.
  • It translates modern pages and many modern webparts, including Hero webparts
  • It translates Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF files, anong others
  • It can translate entire libraries and lists
  • It is not free, and neither is the translation engine
  • It is much faster and the accuracy of translation is much greater.

A graphical interface that is integrated with the SharePoint Online user interface will be added in a few weeks.  If you are using PointFire Translator, we recommend that you plan to migrate in the next year, since it relies on an API that has been partly deprecated.

Many thanks to the beta testers who helped us get the product to this state.
