The Name Translation REST endpoint is:
The name translation endpoint transliterates the name of an entity (Person, Location, or Organization) from English to another language, or to English from another language.
When you are converting from English to another language, the endpoint is optimized to convert the English version of a person’s name back to the native language of that name. For example, you can translate Vladimir Nabokov into Russian (
rus) and the endpoint returns
"translation": "Владимир Набоков".
You must specify the
name and the
targetLanguage for the translation when you submit a request to the /name-translation endpoint.
For example, to translate “بدر شاكر السياب” from Arabic to English, “Badr Shakir al-Sayyab”, you would use the values in the Example column.
|Name to translate
||“بدر شاكر السياب”
|Translate name into this language
||3-letter language code
