What is new about the Custom Translator v2?
The new version comes with a big upgrade to the neural machine translation (NMT) architecture used for the translator:
Custom Translator v2 ups the quality game by upgrading to the newest version of Microsoft Translator’s state-of-the-art neural machine translation (NMT) architecture. These standard, general domain NMT models power Microsoft products such as Office 365, Speech Services, Teams, Bing.com/Translator, and more.
Actually, according to the chart provided by Microsoft, the new NMT architecture comes with huge quality improvements for languages like Korean, Hindi, French, and even Japanese.
The company also outlines the fact that running the Custom Translator simplifies the translation process and it also has a low maintenance cost.
We expect more than 40% of our customers who train dictionary only models would immediately reap the quality improvement of Custom Translator v2 models.
