Multilingual VAs: Components & Feature Support

In the case of multilingual VAs, while much of the assistant’s behavior does not change with the language, the semantics does impose some restrictions. In this document we will list out the different behaviors that would be language-dependent, so you can cater for such scenarios.

This article discusses language-specific components for multilingual VAs, as well as feature support and behavior, as compared to single language assistants. 

This article lists the VA elements for which you can provide language-specific values. You need not translate Standard Responses as the Platform automatically translates them when you enable a language.

Pattern Support

We have seen in this document, how Patterns can be used for Intent detection and Entity extraction. These rules are for VAs in the English language. In other languages, there may be differences. 

Patterns can be used in Small Talk (while defining queries), Knowledge Graph (using alternate question fields), and Trait identification but their behavior might differ slightly. The table below provides an overview of how this may occur.
