Translation API Advanced can translate business documents across 100+ languages

Translation is critical to many developers and localization providers, whether you’re releasing a document, a piece of software, training materials, or a website in multiple languages. Companies acquire and share content in many languages and formats, and scaling translation to meet this need is a tall order, due to multiple document formats, integrations with OCR, and correcting for domain terminology.

Google Cloud: AI & Machine Learning

This feature allows customers to directly translate documents in 100+ languages and formats such as Docx, PPTx, XLSx, and PDF while preserving document formatting. Read more.

Congrats, you bought Anthos! Now what?

What’s the first thing you do when you get something new? It depends, right? When I bought a new mobile phone, I jumped in to reload my favorite apps and explore the new features. After I got the kitchen remodeled, I looked around and wondered what to do next. Organize things? Cook something?

Google Cloud: Anthos

Buying Anthos is more like the latter than the former—there are so many possibilities that it can be hard to know where to start. But once you have your new application platform in place, there are some things you can do to immediately get value and gain momentum. Here are six things to get you started.  Read more.

Introduction to a modern application platform for enterprises

Enterprises' needs are evolving in parallel with the evolution of technology. While technology is catching up to meet business needs, businesses are also catching up with technology and thereby adding more opportunities. Traditional enterprises are adapting to tectonic changes and constantly reinventing themselves. In the context of so many changes, it is important to revisit the state of the art needs of an enterprise for a modern application platform and how that would look in the current context.

Google Cloud: Application Modernization

Google also addresses wider needs of enterprise transformation as enterprises evolve people, processes, and applications to adopt a modern application platform. Read more.

New this month: Data lakes, speed at scale, and SAP data

As you’ve probably noticed by now, our team is all about our customers.

Reinventing the future with a transformation cloud

Looking back on the past year, I see challenges—but also reinvention. Reinvention in how children are educated. Reinvention in how medical professionals provide care. Reinvention in how customers purchase products. This reinvention was made possible by all of the IT leaders around the world who had a vision about what could be possible with technology.

Google Cloud: Data Analytics

Technology has allowed people to work and complete critical activities safely outside of their standard locations. But, it has also enabled transformation in ways we have not seen before: in how people collaborate, in how businesses operate, and most important to me, in how organizations innovate. Read more.

Google Cloud brings this expertise in data and software together for businesses of all sizes so that you can gain an advantage from your data. We call this the data cloud. Read More.
