Language Translation Middleware Support

Posted on by 11


I wanted to know, if we can do some kind of text preprocessing before initiating the power va nlu to recognise the topic.

I tried creating a message received activity trigger, but couldn't call the nlu to recognise the topic from utterance further, it remained in this activity for every message. 

So I was wondering if we can add middlewares, like a normal bot composer bot, to translate any utterance to english (if detected input text language is not equal to english).

Can anyone help me with this?

It would be helpful if you also commented on what's wrong with my first approach.

    Currently, you can do this via Bot Framework skills and calling PVA as a skill, but it's a bit complex. We are exploring ways to streamline this process as this request comes up frequently. If you can filter this request via your sales support it can help raise the priority of the request.
