Translation Character Limit: 2 million characters

Is that 2 million characters regardless of language? I.e. I can have 2 million multi-byte characters? Or is it a memory limit, i.e. 2 million bytes. I just want to double check because I have run into issues in different products with this distinction. Thanks.

  • Hi Kevin, 

    SDL Machine Translation's character count is based on characters being represented by unicode codepoints, rather than on bytes.  So this means our 2 million characters limit on an asynchronous translation request is the same across all supported languages, regardless of whether the language utilize a single byte or double byte character set.
