API and Customization: Confidentiality

Now available: Customize neural and speech translation with the new Custom Translator (Preview)

Custom Translator allows you to customize Microsoft Translator’s neural machine translation when translating text using the Microsoft Translator Text API v3, and speech translation using the preview of the new unified Speech services.

When used with Speech, you can also use the Custom Speech portal to customize speech transcription to better understand the user’s voice, subject matter, or work better in noisy environments, and the Custom Voice portal to customize the text to speech voice output.

Microsoft Translator Text API and Translator Speech API:
Microsoft does not share the data or audio you submit for translation with anybody. Microsoft does not take any samples of any text or audio submitted for translation using the Translator Text API or Translator Speech API. More information is outlined in the No-Trace webpage.

The material you use for training using Translator Hub and Custom Translator is stored encrypted in your workspace. Microsoft will not share the data with anyone else. Custom Translator uses submitted documents in full to provide your personalized translation system and does not use it to improve the Translator service.

For Translator Hub users, you may invite whoever you like into the workspace, identified by an email address and authenticated with a Microsoft Account. You are responsible for initiating and controlling any such sharing. The people you designate as co-owner have access to your training material and training runs the same way you have. Microsoft may use the data in your workspace to improve Microsoft Translator only if the "Keep data private" box in the Settings tab on the Translator Hub is unchecked.

Copyright and Intellectual Property:
Translation, or use of a document for training on the Microsoft Translator Hub and on Custom Translator, does not alter the ownership of the intellectual property contained therein.
