Support for Google Translate NMT

Posted by Estelle Alexandre on May 16, 2017

We just added support for the new Google Translate NMT API in WebTranslateIt.

The Google Translate NMT API is a new machine translation API released by Google using a Neural Network. We find it gives better suggestions for textual segments, but is not as precise as the original Google Translate API for text containing variables, so we found it useful to be able to get suggestions from both the original Google Translate API and the new Google Translate NMT API at the same time.

If you would like to use this new API, just add your Google Translate API token in your project settings.

I hope you will find this improvement useful. Thank you for using WebTranslateIt.

New in WebTranslateIt: Public Organizations

Posted by Estelle Alexandre on May 4, 2017

Do you have many public projects? If you do, you can now provide your translators with a list of all your public projects by setting your organization as public too.

Organization owners can set the organization as public in the organization settings (by clicking on “Account” and then “Settings”.

Public Organizations are visible to people who don’t belong to the organization, and display a list of the public projects they can join.

Here’s an example:

Introducing Teams and Language Coordinators

Posted by Edouard Brière on April 24, 2017

Today we’d like to introduce you to one of our biggest features so far: Teams. It includes the creation of a new role within an organization: Language Coordinator.

Teams

Teams is a completely new feature which will only be available to organizations on our new plans. It isn’t available to organizations on our “Legacy” plans.

Teams simplifies user permission management across projects. It lets you define a team of people with its permissions under one organization.

While you can also invite users directly to a project, Teams lets you create a group of people on the organization level, which means it will be possible to re-use this team on all the projects on your organization.

Once created, the Team can be assigned to as many projects as you want.

This feature is unavailable to organizations on a “Legacy” plan. It is only available for organizations on a Free Trial, or on the Micro, Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large plans and onwards.
You can upgrade your organization from a “Legacy” plan to the one of the new plans on the organization Billing page.

You can learn more about Teams in our documentation.

Teams are also available through the API using the Team and TeamMember APIs.

Language Coordinators

Since we were busy building Teams, we tackled another important feature request: Language Coordinators.

A language coordinator is a person on a project who has the same permissions as a translator, but also has the permission to add or remove translators in his language on a Team or Project. This is useful for translating projects with very large teams.

You can learn more about the role of Language Coordinators and other roles in WebTranslateIt in our documentation.

We hope you will find these improvements useful. Thank you for using WebTranslateIt.

Machine Translation: Update to the Microsoft Azure Translator API

Posted by Estelle Alexandre on March 24, 2017

If you are using machine translation from Bing Translator, please note that Microsoft is deprecating its current Microsoft Translator API found on the Azure DataMarket in favor of a new Microsoft Translator Text API that you can find on the Azure Portal.

Starting on March 31st, the legacy Translator API won’t serve translations anymore. It means that in order to keep using translation suggestions from Microsoft Translator you will need to sign up to the Azure Portal and get a new API token. Old tokens aren’t compatible with the legacy implementation of Microsoft Azure Translator.

We released an update to WebTranslateIt to support the new Microsoft Translator API, so you can now use the new Microsoft Azure Translator credentials delivered on the Azure Portal with WebTranslateIt.

How to upgrade?

First, head over to WebTranslateIt’s documentation on Machine Translation to learn how to get your new Microsoft Azure Translator API credentials.

Once you have your new key, go to your project settings and paste it to the Microsoft Translator API field and that should be it.

Should you have any questions, please visit the support site and we will get right back to you.
