@Amire80 has volunteered to look into this, I think?

In practice, I can only volunteer to check some things around and see if what we have on other sites can also be applied here, but I can't promise anything will actually be installed because it's not trivial.

Translate itself does not provide an API for this, but if you are using Translate extension you can configure it to use any of the supported services. The most useful is going to be the CXServer module which will provide machine translation suggestions with Apertium using the Wikimedia hosted cxserver API. The other supported services in Translate either just support only a few language pairs or are paid APIs.
