Hi,

I represent an enterprise that is interested in utilizing the Microsoft Azure Translate API in python for our language translation needs. However, upon initial exploration, we have encountered certain inaccuracies in the translations from Spanish to English. We are particularly concerned with the translation of the Spanish word "zapatillas," which is being translated as "slippers" instead of the desired "sneakers. Is there a method to enforce specific translations for certain words? In this case, we aim to ensure that "zapatillas" consistently translates to "sneakers". Although we understand that we can use a custom translator and train it with our own data, this seems like a significant task for addressing just a few translations

We would greatly appreciate any guidance or solutions to address this issue. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
