Re: AI Infused
I have used "AI" API calls to do reasonable translations to output language (& unlike the stand-alone language translation APIs that required me to specify to / from languages*, AI would "recognise" input language and translate to output language.
So that was quite useful.
Except that sometimes it failed to manage a translation as it could not identify input language (though, TBF, this was only when text was a relatively small snippet, with more words it was fine).
So, for that odd, flexibility on handling "unspecified" input language, use case, "AI" was good... But not exactly a compelling use case, as generally when you get enquiries in a "different" language to the one you use, there are normally "metadata clues" to what the input language is (be it address, country code in email address or phone number) and always chance of recognising enough vocab yourself to "guess" the language and so normally typical translation tool APIs can be used, without needing "AI" APIs. Only use case when the "text" missing any metadata & a hard to ID language for the person who receives it (e.g. I can ID French, German, Spanish, Italian reasonably accurately from received text (& so know the translation call to make) but beyond that I struggle on language ID wthout "metadata hints")
* There may be non "AI" language APIs that auto identify source language - I just have not seen / used any.
