Amazon Lex launches support for Hindi and Dutch
We are excited to announce that Amazon Lex now supports Hindi and Dutch. [Amazon Lex](/lex/) is a service for building conversational interfaces into any application using voice and text. Amazon Lex provides deep learning powered automatic speech recognition (ASR) for converting speech to text, and natural language understanding (NLU) to recognize the intent of the text, to enable you to build applications with highly engaging user experiences and lifelike conversational interactions. With these new languages, you can build and expand your conversational experiences to better understand and engage your customer base. 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. Language support for Hindi and Dutch is available in [AWS Regions](/about-aws/global-infrastructure/regional-product-services/) where [Amazon Lex](/lex/) operates.
