This service uses the Google Translate API to translate text. Google Translate is a paid service.





Character limit


This service has a 2000 character limit for every translation request. When translating documents, the service submits the content of every field and editable region as a separate unit, so the total number of characters per document is not restricted.



Configuring the Google Translate service


To set up the Google Translate service on your website:


1. Sign in to the Google APIs console using a Google account.


2. Create a new project and activate the Translate API service.


3. Obtain your project's API key on API Access pane.


4. Open Kentico CMS and go to Site Manager -> Settings -> Content -> Translation services.


5. Copy the API Key into the corresponding setting in the Google Translator section. Click Save Save.


You can now translate documents and localization strings using the Google Translate service.
