Azure Cognitive Services Updates

New capabilities for document translation and text analytics have been added to Azure Cognitive Services, a family of AI services and cognitive APIs to help build intelligent apps.

Document Translation, a Translator feature in Azure Cognitive Services, is now generally available after being announced in preview in February. It allows developers to quickly translate documents while preserving the structure and format of the original documents. Use cases include enterprises and translation agencies that need to translate complex documents into one or more languages.

Text Analytics for health, which launched last July as a preview feature of Text Analytics in Azure Cognitive Services, is now generally available. Developers can use it to process and extract insights from unstructured medical data, including doctors’ notes, medical journals, electronic health records and clinical trial protocols.

Question Answering, another new Text Analytics feature, is now in preview. It helps users find answers from a passage of text without saving or managing data in Azure.
