This information refers to Version 3 (V3) of the Translator Text API and Translator Speech API.
Microsoft Translator is served out of multiple datacenter locations. Currently they are located in 6 Azure regions
- Americas: West US 2 and West Central US
- Asia Pacific: Southeast Asia and Korea South
- Europe: North Europe and West Europe
Requests to the Microsoft Translator Text API are in most cases handled by the datacenter that is closest to where the request originated. In case of a datacenter failure, the request may be routed outside of the region.
To force the request to be handled by a European datacenter, change the API calls to the European regional endpoint:
- api-eur.cognitive.microsofttranslator.com, instead of api.cognitive.microsofttranslator.com.
