Changes to the machine translation and support for Bing Translator API

Posted by Edouard on October 11, 2011

There was a lot of chatter about Google closing its Google Translate API recently. In fact, Google won’t shut down their API but will turn it as a paying service on the first of December.

It doesn’t make a financial sense for me to keep supporting this API for all WebTranslateIt customers, so I decided to make this machine translation service optional, and to add another optional machine translation service: Bing Translator, which as this time, remains entirely free.

Setting up Google Translate and Bing Translator

Starting today, you won’t get any machine translation suggestions when you edit a segment. However, you will find in your project settings two new fields for your Google Translate API and Bing Translator API tokens.

This is really easy to set up:

  1. Go to your project settings.
  2. Scroll down to the “Machine Translation” section and get your API tokens using the links provided and paste them in the respective fields.
  3. Save your project settings, and that’s it!

Don’t hesitate to contact support if you have any troubles setting this up. Thank you for using WebTranslateIt.
