Getting started

Install the package

Install the Azure Document Translation client library for .NET with NuGet:

dotnet add package Azure.AI.Translation.Document --prerelease

Note: This version of the client library defaults to the v1.0 version of the service.

Prerequisites

Create a Translator resource

Document Translation supports single-service access only. To access the service, create a Translator resource.

You can create either resource using:

Option 1: Azure Portal.

Option 2: Azure CLI.

Below is an example of how you can create a Translator resource using the CLI:

# Create a new resource group to hold the Translator resource -
# if using an existing resource group, skip this step
az group create --name <your-resource-name> --location <location>
# Create Translator
az cognitiveservices account create \
    --name <your-resource-name> \
    --custom-domain <your-resource-name> \
    --resource-group <your-resource-group-name> \
    --kind TextTranslation \
    --sku S1 \
    --location <location> \
    --yes

For more information about creating the resource or how to get the location information see here.

Authenticate the client

In order to interact with the Document Translation service, you'll need to create an instance of the DocumentTranslationClient class. You will need an endpoint, and either an API key or TokenCredential to instantiate a client object. For more information regarding authenticating with cognitive services, see Authenticate requests to Azure Cognitive Services.

Looking up the endpoint

For Document Translation you will need to use a Custom Domain Endpoint using the name of you Translator resource.

Get API Key

You can get the API key from the Translator resource information in the Azure Portal.

Alternatively, use the Azure CLI snippet below to get the API key from the Translator resource.

az cognitiveservices account keys list --resource-group <your-resource-group-name> --name <your-resource-name>
Create DocumentTranslationClient with API Key Credential

Once you have the value for the API key, create an AzureKeyCredential. This will allow you to update the API key without creating a new client.

With the value of the endpoint and an AzureKeyCredential, you can create the DocumentTranslationClient:

string endpoint = "<Document Translator Resource Endpoint>";
string apiKey = "<Document Translator Resource API Key>";
var client = new DocumentTranslationClient(new Uri(endpoint), new AzureKeyCredential(apiKey));
Create DocumentTranslationClient with Azure Active Directory Credential

Client API key authentication is used in most of the examples in this getting started guide, but you can also authenticate with Azure Active Directory using the Azure Identity library. Note that regional endpoints do not support AAD authentication.

Create a custom subdomain for your resource in order to use this type of authentication.

To use the DefaultAzureCredential provider shown below, or other credential providers provided with the Azure SDK, please install the Azure.Identity package:

Install-Package Azure.Identity

You will also need to register a new AAD application and grant access to your Translator resource by assigning the "Cognitive Services User" role to your service principal.

Set the values of the client ID, tenant ID, and client secret of the AAD application as environment variables: AZURE_CLIENT_ID, AZURE_TENANT_ID, AZURE_CLIENT_SECRET.

string endpoint = "<Document Translator Resource Endpoint>";
var client = new DocumentTranslationClient(new Uri(endpoint), new DefaultAzureCredential());

Key concepts

The Document Translation service requires that you upload your files to an Azure Blob Storage source container and provide a target container where the translated documents can be written. SAS tokens to the containers (or files) are used to access the documents and create the translated documents in the target container. Additional information about setting this up can be found in the service documentation:

DocumentTranslationClient

A DocumentTranslationClient is the primary interface for developers using the Document Translation client library. It provides both synchronous and asynchronous methods to perform the following operations:

  • Creating a translation operation to translate documents in your source container(s) and write results to you target container(s).
  • Enumerating all past and current translation operations.
  • Identifying supported glossary and document formats.

Translation Input

To start a translation operation you need to create one instance or a list of DocumentTranslationInput.

A single source URL to documents can be translated to many different languages:

Uri sourceSasUri = new Uri("<source SAS URI>");
Uri frenchTargetSasUri = new Uri("<french target SAS URI>");
var input = new DocumentTranslationInput(sourceSasUri, frenchTargetSasUri, "fr");

Or multiple different sources can be provided each with their own targets.

Uri arabicTargetSasUri = new Uri("<arabic target SAS URI>");
Uri spanishTargetSasUri = new Uri("<spanish target SAS URI>");
Uri source1SasUri = new Uri("<source1 SAS URI>");
Uri source2SasUri = new Uri("<source2 SAS URI>");

var inputs = new List<DocumentTranslationInput>
{
    new DocumentTranslationInput(source1SasUri, spanishTargetSasUri, "es"),
    new DocumentTranslationInput(
        source: new TranslationSource(source2SasUri),
        targets: new List<TranslationTarget>
        {
            new TranslationTarget(frenchTargetSasUri, "fr"),
            new TranslationTarget(arabicTargetSasUri, "ar")
        }),
};

Note that documents written to a target container must have unique names. So you can't translate a source container into a target container twice or have sources with the same documents translated into the same target container.

Long-Running Operations

Document Translation is implemented as a long-running operation. Long-running operations consist of an initial request sent to the service to start an operation, followed by polling the service at intervals to determine whether the operation has completed successfully or failed.

For long running operations in the Azure SDK, the client exposes a Start<operation-name> method that returns a PageableOperation<T>. You can use the extension method WaitForCompletionAsync() to wait for the operation to complete and obtain its result. A sample code snippet is provided to illustrate using long-running operations below.

Thread safety

We guarantee that all client instance methods are thread-safe and independent of each other (guideline). This ensures that the recommendation of reusing client instances is always safe, even across threads.

Async Examples

Sync Examples

Note: our DocumentTranslationClient provides both synchronous and asynchronous methods.

Start Translation Asynchronously

Start a translation operation to translate documents in the source container and write the translated files to the target container. DocumentTranslationOperation allows you to poll the status of the translation operation and get the status of the individual documents.

Uri sourceUri = new Uri("<source SAS URI>");
Uri targetUri = new Uri("<target SAS URI>");
var input = new DocumentTranslationInput(sourceUri, targetUri, "es");

DocumentTranslationOperation operation = await client.StartTranslationAsync(input);

await operation.WaitForCompletionAsync();

Console.WriteLine($"  Status: {operation.Status}");
Console.WriteLine($"  Created on: {operation.CreatedOn}");
Console.WriteLine($"  Last modified: {operation.LastModified}");
Console.WriteLine($"  Total documents: {operation.DocumentsTotal}");
Console.WriteLine($"    Succeeded: {operation.DocumentsSucceeded}");
Console.WriteLine($"    Failed: {operation.DocumentsFailed}");
Console.WriteLine($"    In Progress: {operation.DocumentsInProgress}");
Console.WriteLine($"    Not started: {operation.DocumentsNotStarted}");

await foreach (DocumentStatusResult document in operation.Value)
{
    Console.WriteLine($"Document with Id: {document.Id}");
    Console.WriteLine($"  Status:{document.Status}");
    if (document.Status == DocumentTranslationStatus.Succeeded)
    {
        Console.WriteLine($"  Translated Document Uri: {document.TranslatedDocumentUri}");
        Console.WriteLine($"  Translated to language code: {document.TranslatedToLanguageCode}.");
        Console.WriteLine($"  Document source Uri: {document.SourceDocumentUri}");
    }
    else
    {
        Console.WriteLine($"  Error Code: {document.Error.ErrorCode}");
        Console.WriteLine($"  Message: {document.Error.Message}");
    }
}

Get Operations History Asynchronously

Get History of submitted translation operations from the last 7 days. The options parameter can be ommitted if the user would like to return all submitted operations.

int operationsCount = 0;
int totalDocs = 0;
int docsCanceled = 0;
int docsSucceeded = 0;
int docsFailed = 0;

DateTimeOffset lastWeekTimestamp = DateTimeOffset.Now.AddDays(-7);

var options = new GetTranslationStatusesOptions
{
    CreatedAfter = lastWeekTimestamp
};

await foreach (TranslationStatusResult translationStatus in client.GetTranslationStatusesAsync(options))
{
    if (translationStatus.Status == DocumentTranslationStatus.NotStarted ||
        translationStatus.Status == DocumentTranslationStatus.Running)
    {
        DocumentTranslationOperation operation = new DocumentTranslationOperation(translationStatus.Id, client);
        await operation.WaitForCompletionAsync();
    }

    operationsCount++;
    totalDocs += translationStatus.DocumentsTotal;
    docsCanceled += translationStatus.DocumentsCanceled;
    docsSucceeded += translationStatus.DocumentsSucceeded;
    docsFailed += translationStatus.DocumentsFailed;
}

Console.WriteLine($"# of operations: {operationsCount}");
Console.WriteLine($"Total Documents: {totalDocs}");
Console.WriteLine($"Succeeded Document: {docsSucceeded}");
Console.WriteLine($"Failed Document: {docsFailed}");
Console.WriteLine($"Canceled Documents: {docsCanceled}");

Start Translation with Multiple Inputs Asynchronously

Start a translation operation to translate documents in multiple source containers to multiple target containers in different languages. DocumentTranslationOperation allows you to poll the status of the translation operation and get the status of the individual documents.

Uri source1SasUri = new Uri("<source1 SAS URI>");
Uri source2SasUri = new Uri("<source2 SAS URI>");
Uri frenchTargetSasUri = new Uri("<french target SAS URI>");
Uri arabicTargetSasUri = new Uri("<arabic target SAS URI>");
Uri spanishTargetSasUri = new Uri("<spanish target SAS URI>");
Uri frenchGlossarySasUri = new Uri("<french glossary SAS URI>");

var glossaryFormat = "TSV";

var input1 = new DocumentTranslationInput(source1SasUri, frenchTargetSasUri, "fr", new TranslationGlossary(frenchGlossarySasUri, glossaryFormat));
input1.AddTarget(spanishTargetSasUri, "es");

var input2 = new DocumentTranslationInput(source2SasUri, arabicTargetSasUri, "ar");
input2.AddTarget(frenchTargetSasUri, "fr", new TranslationGlossary(frenchGlossarySasUri, glossaryFormat));

var inputs = new List<DocumentTranslationInput>()
    {
        input1,
        input2
    };

DocumentTranslationOperation operation = await client.StartTranslationAsync(inputs);

await operation.WaitForCompletionAsync();

await foreach (DocumentStatusResult document in operation.GetValuesAsync())
{
    Console.WriteLine($"Document with Id: {document.Id}");
    Console.WriteLine($"  Status:{document.Status}");
    if (document.Status == DocumentTranslationStatus.Succeeded)
    {
        Console.WriteLine($"  Translated Document Uri: {document.TranslatedDocumentUri}");
        Console.WriteLine($"  Translated to language code: {document.TranslatedToLanguageCode}.");
        Console.WriteLine($"  Document source Uri: {document.SourceDocumentUri}");
    }
    else
    {
        Console.WriteLine($"  Document source Uri: {document.SourceDocumentUri}");
        Console.WriteLine($"  Error Code: {document.Error.ErrorCode}");
        Console.WriteLine($"  Message: {document.Error.Message}");
    }
}

Start Translation

Start a translation operation to translate documents in the source container and write the translated files to the target container. DocumentTranslationOperation allows you to poll the status of the translation operation and get the status of the individual documents.

Uri sourceUri = new Uri("<source SAS URI>");
Uri targetUri = new Uri("<target SAS URI>");
var input = new DocumentTranslationInput(sourceUri, targetUri, "es");

DocumentTranslationOperation operation = client.StartTranslation(input);

TimeSpan pollingInterval = new(1000);

while (true)
{
    operation.UpdateStatus();

    Console.WriteLine($"  Status: {operation.Status}");
    Console.WriteLine($"  Created on: {operation.CreatedOn}");
    Console.WriteLine($"  Last modified: {operation.LastModified}");
    Console.WriteLine($"  Total documents: {operation.DocumentsTotal}");
    Console.WriteLine($"    Succeeded: {operation.DocumentsSucceeded}");
    Console.WriteLine($"    Failed: {operation.DocumentsFailed}");
    Console.WriteLine($"    In Progress: {operation.DocumentsInProgress}");
    Console.WriteLine($"    Not started: {operation.DocumentsNotStarted}");

    if (operation.HasCompleted)
    {
        break;
    }
    else
    {
        if (operation.GetRawResponse().Headers.TryGetValue("Retry-After", out string value))
        {
            pollingInterval = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(Convert.ToInt32(value));
        }
        Thread.Sleep(pollingInterval);
    }
}

foreach (DocumentStatusResult document in operation.GetValues())
{
    Console.WriteLine($"Document with Id: {document.Id}");
    Console.WriteLine($"  Status:{document.Status}");
    if (document.Status == DocumentTranslationStatus.Succeeded)
    {
        Console.WriteLine($"  Translated Document Uri: {document.TranslatedDocumentUri}");
        Console.WriteLine($"  Translated to language code: {document.TranslatedToLanguageCode}.");
        Console.WriteLine($"  Document source Uri: {document.SourceDocumentUri}");
    }
    else
    {
        Console.WriteLine($"  Document source Uri: {document.SourceDocumentUri}");
        Console.WriteLine($"  Error Code: {document.Error.ErrorCode}");
        Console.WriteLine($"  Message: {document.Error.Message}");
    }
}

Troubleshooting

General

When you interact with the Cognitive Services Document Translation client library using the .NET SDK, errors returned by the service correspond to the same HTTP status codes returned for REST API requests.

For example, if you submit a request with an empty targets list, a 400 error is returned, indicating "Bad Request".

var invalidInput = new DocumentTranslationInput(new TranslationSource(new Uri(endpoint)), new List<TranslationTarget>());

try
{
    DocumentTranslationOperation operation = client.StartTranslation(invalidInput);
}
catch (RequestFailedException e)
{
    Console.WriteLine(e.ToString());
}

You will notice that additional information is logged, like the client request ID of the operation.

Message:
    Azure.RequestFailedException: Service request failed.
    Status: 400 (Bad Request)

Content:
    {"error":{"code":"InvalidRequest","message":"No translation target found.","target":"TargetInput","innerError":{"code":"NoTranslationTargetFound","message":"No translation target found."}}}

Headers:
    Transfer-Encoding: chunked
    X-RequestId: REDACTED
    Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8
    Set-Cookie: REDACTED
    X-Powered-By: REDACTED

    Strict-Transport-Security: REDACTED
    x-content-type-options: REDACTED
    Date: Mon, 22 Mar 2021 11:54:58 GMT

Setting up console logging

The simplest way to see the logs is to enable the console logging. To create an Azure SDK log listener that outputs messages to console use AzureEventSourceListener.CreateConsoleLogger method.

// Setup a listener to monitor logged events.
using AzureEventSourceListener listener = AzureEventSourceListener.CreateConsoleLogger();

To learn more about other logging mechanisms see here.

Getting started

Install the package

Install the Azure Document Translation client library for .NET with NuGet:

dotnet add package Azure.AI.Translation.Document --prerelease

Note: This version of the client library defaults to the v1.0 version of the service.

Prerequisites

Create a Translator resource

Document Translation supports single-service access only. To access the service, create a Translator resource.

You can create either resource using:

Option 1: Azure Portal.

Option 2: Azure CLI.

Below is an example of how you can create a Translator resource using the CLI:

# Create a new resource group to hold the Translator resource -
# if using an existing resource group, skip this step
az group create --name <your-resource-name> --location <location>
# Create Translator
az cognitiveservices account create \
    --name <your-resource-name> \
    --custom-domain <your-resource-name> \
    --resource-group <your-resource-group-name> \
    --kind TextTranslation \
    --sku S1 \
    --location <location> \
    --yes

For more information about creating the resource or how to get the location information see here.

Authenticate the client

In order to interact with the Document Translation service, you'll need to create an instance of the DocumentTranslationClient class. You will need an endpoint, and either an API key or TokenCredential to instantiate a client object. For more information regarding authenticating with cognitive services, see Authenticate requests to Azure Cognitive Services.

Looking up the endpoint

For Document Translation you will need to use a Custom Domain Endpoint using the name of you Translator resource.

Get API Key

You can get the API key from the Translator resource information in the Azure Portal.

Alternatively, use the Azure CLI snippet below to get the API key from the Translator resource.

az cognitiveservices account keys list --resource-group <your-resource-group-name> --name <your-resource-name>
Create DocumentTranslationClient with API Key Credential

Once you have the value for the API key, create an AzureKeyCredential. This will allow you to update the API key without creating a new client.

With the value of the endpoint and an AzureKeyCredential, you can create the DocumentTranslationClient:

string endpoint = "<Document Translator Resource Endpoint>";
string apiKey = "<Document Translator Resource API Key>";
var client = new DocumentTranslationClient(new Uri(endpoint), new AzureKeyCredential(apiKey));
Create DocumentTranslationClient with Azure Active Directory Credential

Client API key authentication is used in most of the examples in this getting started guide, but you can also authenticate with Azure Active Directory using the Azure Identity library. Note that regional endpoints do not support AAD authentication.

Create a custom subdomain for your resource in order to use this type of authentication.

To use the DefaultAzureCredential provider shown below, or other credential providers provided with the Azure SDK, please install the Azure.Identity package:

Install-Package Azure.Identity

You will also need to register a new AAD application and grant access to your Translator resource by assigning the "Cognitive Services User" role to your service principal.

Set the values of the client ID, tenant ID, and client secret of the AAD application as environment variables: AZURE_CLIENT_ID, AZURE_TENANT_ID, AZURE_CLIENT_SECRET.

string endpoint = "<Document Translator Resource Endpoint>";
var client = new DocumentTranslationClient(new Uri(endpoint), new DefaultAzureCredential());

Start Translation

Start a translation operation to translate documents in the source container and write the translated files to the target container. DocumentTranslationOperation allows you to poll the status of the translation operation and get the status of the individual documents.

Uri sourceUri = new Uri("<source SAS URI>");
Uri targetUri = new Uri("<target SAS URI>");
var input = new DocumentTranslationInput(sourceUri, targetUri, "es");

DocumentTranslationOperation operation = client.StartTranslation(input);

TimeSpan pollingInterval = new(1000);

while (true)
{
    operation.UpdateStatus();

    Console.WriteLine($"  Status: {operation.Status}");
    Console.WriteLine($"  Created on: {operation.CreatedOn}");
    Console.WriteLine($"  Last modified: {operation.LastModified}");
    Console.WriteLine($"  Total documents: {operation.DocumentsTotal}");
    Console.WriteLine($"    Succeeded: {operation.DocumentsSucceeded}");
    Console.WriteLine($"    Failed: {operation.DocumentsFailed}");
    Console.WriteLine($"    In Progress: {operation.DocumentsInProgress}");
    Console.WriteLine($"    Not started: {operation.DocumentsNotStarted}");

    if (operation.HasCompleted)
    {
        break;
    }
    else
    {
        if (operation.GetRawResponse().Headers.TryGetValue("Retry-After", out string value))
        {
            pollingInterval = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(Convert.ToInt32(value));
        }
        Thread.Sleep(pollingInterval);
    }
}

foreach (DocumentStatusResult document in operation.GetValues())
{
    Console.WriteLine($"Document with Id: {document.Id}");
    Console.WriteLine($"  Status:{document.Status}");
    if (document.Status == DocumentTranslationStatus.Succeeded)
    {
        Console.WriteLine($"  Translated Document Uri: {document.TranslatedDocumentUri}");
        Console.WriteLine($"  Translated to language code: {document.TranslatedToLanguageCode}.");
        Console.WriteLine($"  Document source Uri: {document.SourceDocumentUri}");
    }
    else
    {
        Console.WriteLine($"  Document source Uri: {document.SourceDocumentUri}");
        Console.WriteLine($"  Error Code: {document.Error.ErrorCode}");
        Console.WriteLine($"  Message: {document.Error.Message}");
    }
}

Troubleshooting

General

When you interact with the Cognitive Services Document Translation client library using the .NET SDK, errors returned by the service correspond to the same HTTP status codes returned for REST API requests.

For example, if you submit a request with an empty targets list, a 400 error is returned, indicating "Bad Request".

var invalidInput = new DocumentTranslationInput(new TranslationSource(new Uri(endpoint)), new List<TranslationTarget>());

try
{
    DocumentTranslationOperation operation = client.StartTranslation(invalidInput);
}
catch (RequestFailedException e)
{
    Console.WriteLine(e.ToString());
}

You will notice that additional information is logged, like the client request ID of the operation.

Message:
    Azure.RequestFailedException: Service request failed.
    Status: 400 (Bad Request)

Content:
    {"error":{"code":"InvalidRequest","message":"No translation target found.","target":"TargetInput","innerError":{"code":"NoTranslationTargetFound","message":"No translation target found."}}}

Headers:
    Transfer-Encoding: chunked

Setting up console logging

The simplest way to see the logs is to enable the console logging. To create an Azure SDK log listener that outputs messages to console use AzureEventSourceListener.CreateConsoleLogger method.

// Setup a listener to monitor logged events.
using AzureEventSourceListener listener = AzureEventSourceListener.CreateConsoleLogger();

To learn more about other logging mechanisms see here.
