Amazon Translate cost saving tips Optimize your Amazon Translate costs with these tips


Use Custom Terminology

Provide Amazon Translate with custom terms and phrases translated as per your needs. This will produce more accurate translations reducing manual post-editing and repetition costs.

Brevity reduces the length of output for most translations which can help lower character counts and translation costs. This is generally supported for real-time text translations.


Leverage Advanced Features

Refer to the documentation for details on advanced features like do-not-translate tags, profanity filtering, and formality levels. These can optimize translation quality reducing the number of necessary revisions.

About Alex I am your AWS cost saving guru, ready to slash your AWS costs!

As a CTO at various start-ups and scale-ups, I've seen too often how AWS costs can sneak up on you. It used to be something we'd only think about when there was a problem—either it wasn't working like we needed it to, or the expenses were through the roof. I took my know-how in AWS and made it my goal to change that. Now, I use a simple rule to make a big impact: focus on the few changes that make the biggest difference in cutting costs.

I look at your AWS bills with a fine-tooth comb and find where you can save money without losing performance. It's about being smart with your resources and making sure AWS works for you, not against you. By doing this, I help your teams do more with less, and make sure we keep your cloud spending in check.
