  1. Document Translator Settings

    Why I receive in SETTINGS ACCOUNT Key: ***************************
    the response "Key is invalid"
    "Please visit the Azure Portal to obtain a subscription key."

    I have this already done. A Javascript example works with my Azure subscription key. Why not the Document Translator?

    • Why is   removed during a translation?

      I'm using the Microsoft Translator Text API to translate parts of a webpage. The platform we use, inserts   in the HTML to render empty lines. So a part of the webpage can be:

      <p>
      <span>This is a dummy text</span>
      </p>
      <p>
      <span>&nbsp;</span>
      </p>
      When I send this to the Microsoft Translator Text API, it returns the following HTML:

      <p>
      <span>Il s’agit d’un texte factice</span>
      </p>
      <p>
      <span></span>
      </p>
      I've set the content type to text/html, and escape the HTML characters to be able to send it to the API (so &nbsp; will be replaced with &amp;nbsp;). But the text…

          • API GET requests Not Working?

            Using http://docs.microsofttranslator.com/text-translate.html#!/default/get_Translate, I am able to get a token fine from both of my Keys.
            I am unable to actually translate anything. Everything returns back with:

            {
            "error": "no response from server"
            }

            In Fiddler I'm get a 307 redirect:
            There is no operation listening for https://api.microsofttranslator.com/v2/http.svc/Translate?text=Hello%20dsdsd&to=ja, but there is an operation listening for https://api.microsofttranslator.com/v2/http.svc/Translate/?text=Hello%20dsdsd&to=ja, so you are being redirected there.

            • TranslateArray method returns no response from server - is this broken?

              The TranslateArray method is returning 'no response from server' for every request when testing using http://docs.microsofttranslator.com/text-translate.html.

              The 'Translate' method works fine though - I'm using exactly the same appid for both tests...

              • Quality of Alternative translations

                This is a continuation of https://translatorbusiness.uservoice.com/forums/328299-api-text-translation/suggestions/16685995-quality-of-alternative-translations after taking into account the recent doc/api changes.

                I am posting here again worded slightly differently for clarity.

                TLDR: translate.bing.com shows magical alternative translations but the API returns only one or two.

                Long version:
                When you go to translate.bing.com and enter, say, 允许 you get a long list of alternative translations which is fabulous. In this case it looks like- http://imgur.com/a/mjGPW which, with the scores is very right from my knowledge of Chinese. However, if you do the same using the API- you get a single result- "Admit" with rating 5 and matchDegree 100.

                • Unable to get subscription keys from Azure portal

                  I subscribed to Text Translation API on Azure Portal following the steps here - https://translatorbusiness.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/1078534-action-required-before-april-30-2017-microsoft-t

                  However I am unable to get the subscription keys from Azure Portal, instead it displays the following error -

                  MICROSOFT_AZURE_PROJECTOXFORD

                  Can you tell me if there are any alternative ways of getting my subscription keys?

                  • PHP for Microsoft Translator Text Translation

                    Hi,

                    The code below is from the "old" API which relies on ClientID and Client Secret. Can anybody help me get started with perhaps a few clues as to what changes I need for the "new" system which uses KEY?

                    ======================================================
                    $grantType = 'client_credentials';
                    $scopeUrl = 'http://api.microsofttranslator.com';
                    $authUrl = 'https://datamarket.accesscontrol.windows.net/v2/OAuth2-13/';
                    $clientID = 'translation';
                    $clientSecret = 'translation-server';

                    $ch = curl_init();
                    $paramArr = array (
                    'grant_type' => $grantType,
                    'scope' => $scopeUrl,
                    'client_id' => $clientID,
                    'client_secret' => $clientSecret
                    );
                    $paramArr = http_build_query($paramArr);
                    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $authUrl);
                    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, TRUE);
                    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $paramArr);
                    curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, TRUE);
                    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);

                    • API to get alternative meanings

                      Hello, when I enter 允许 in the bing translator, I get the following in the bottom right-

                      http://imgur.com/a/mjGPW

                      These are alternative meanings with their likelihood.

                      Is there an API to get them?

                                  • Translator API and Translator Hub language codes

                                    There is no such language as Chinese Hakka in Translator API and it returns error when I send 'hak' as language prefix. But I can build model for Chinese Hakka with Translator Hub. What language should I send for Translator API in this case?
