Text Element Translation

Help 2 minutes

Easily translate any Text element into 70 languages on the Agency and Enterprise plan. Create multi-lingual multi-resolution images in one API call.

Switchboard Canvas allows text elements to be dynamically translated on the fly, using the API.

Users on the Agency and Enterprise plans can translate text in Text elements in 70+ languages.

To translate text, use the translateTo property when overriding any Text element. This example translates a text field called quote to German:

{
template: "custom-quote",
sizes: [
{
width: 1080,
height: 1080,
elements: {
quote: {
translateTo: "de"
}
}
}
]
}

You can also use the API to generate multiple images with translations into different languages by repeating the sizes elements as necessary.

{
template: "custom-quote",
sizes: [
{
width: 1080,
height: 1080,
elements: {
quote: {
translateTo: "de"
}
}
},
{
width: 1080,
height: 1080,
elements: {
quote: {
translateTo: "fr"
}
}
}
]
}

This would produce two images, both sizes at 1080x1080, but one whose quote text is translated into German and the other into French.
