  1. 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 -
        KeysPropertiesPart
        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);
          ======================================================

          • Too many TranslateArray requests

            We have a bunch of huge files to translate and our calls are timing out. Wondering what is the throttling limit? Appreciate your guidance

                            Hello, I would like to use your API for my application. However, how can we do if I have millions of users with billions and billion characters.

                            It is a social network with the translation but even 1 000 000 000 of characters will not be sufficient.
                            is €4564 / month for 1 000 000 000 of characters the maximum?

                            There is t - it is not an unlimited supply for example? Or t - it is not an offer for the social network?

                            Because if I have millions of users via the social network your API is not correct…

                              My server has recently gotten a weird thing that i just cant figure out.

                              Until yesterday i was successfully using Microsoft Translator API via SOAP WSDL services (PHP SoapClient) and suddenly without notice (nor change on our end) it has stopped working.. the reason? Simple as i can fathom but cant figure out why nor how to fix it:

                              SoapClient is changing/switching the URI on it's own.. either as a result of the api or soemthing on my end resulting on :

                              Warning: SoapClient::SoapClient() [soapclient.soapclient]: php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known.

                              The code:

                              $obj= new SoapClient('http://api.microsofttranslator.com/V2/SOAP.svc');

                                I suggest no one cancel Microsoft Market until this is clear.

                                    • https://datamarket.azure.com/account no longer provides my client id and secret

                                      This is a blocking issue. A couple months ago I created a data market account and successfully signed up for the microsoft translator text translator. I even successfully used the translator before. However, now I need to get my clientId and clientSecret, but the data market website fails when I click on the link to get my secret.

                                      http://imgur.com/a/BZgIR Here is a screenshot. I click on the "use" button but it returns a HTTP 500 error with no real explanation of what happened. I've reproduced this issue on several machines with several IP addresses. I've also reproduced this issue on…

                                      • Quality of Alternative translations

                                        So I hope I'm posting this at the right place. If not, please let me know.
                                        When I use the online interface for Bing Translator to see the alternative translations, I get the feeling that I'm in the future where translation is downright magical and the world is perfect. See here for the tranlations of 允许: http://imgur.com/a/mjGPW . I get the following translations: Array [ "allow", "permitted", "enables", "let", "permission", "allowable", "permissible" ]

                                        However, when I use the API to get alternative translations for 允许 using the following request:

                                        <GetTranslationsArrayRequest>
                                        <AppId/>
