Amazon Lex launches support for Austrian German
Today, Amazon Lex announces language support for Austrian German. [Amazon Lex](/lex/) is a service for building conversational interfaces into any application using voice and text.

Now you can deliver a robust and localized conversational experience that understands Austrian German. Amazon Lex can be applied to a diverse set of use cases such as virtual agents, interactive voice response systems, self-service chatbots, or application bots.
