  1. Bing Translator Widget keeps reopening after I close it.

    The Bing Translator Widget will always reopen after I try to close it. When using the widget on manual mode and translate the page to say Spanish from English. When I close the widget it will go back to English, but if I move to another page it automatically tries to translate the page to Spanish, There is no way to close the widget once it is opened, each time you visit a new page it will reopen itself. Is there any solution to this? When I close the widget I would like it to stay closed until I decide…

    • Translate certain parts of the page only with Bing translator web widget

      Our website is offered in 10 different languages with all static content already translated by external vendors. We have a requirement to translate certain parts of the page we do not have in advance.

      The Translator Web Widget translates the whole page instead of only certain parts of the page. As a POC, I tried loading the translation API code in a hidden iframe, set the text to translate in a div element, and then called the Translate method and it worked. I was able to extract the translation and use it in my web page.

      I would like to…

      • siteData parameter

        Is the siteData parameter provided here (http://www.bing.com/widget/translator) public and same for everyone or should I generate one using an API account to add translator widgets to webpages in my site? I don't seem to find any documentation related to this parameter.

          • Is ctf suggestion feature experiencing an outage?

            When i set this property "true" the widget does not translate and the service responds with error 500. This started happening around 1:30 PM EST sep-30-2016. is there a known issue with the=is part of the widget's service? if i set to false, all is well and widget translates as expected.

            for example, this works:
            <div id='MicrosoftTranslatorWidget' class='Dark' style='color:white;background-color:#555555'></div><script type='text/javascript'>setTimeout(function(){{var s=document.createElement('script');s.type='text/javascript';s.charset='UTF-8';s.src=((location && location.href && location.href.indexOf('https') == 0)?'https://ssl.microsofttranslator.com':'http://www.microsofttranslator.com')+'/ajax/v3/WidgetV3.ashx?siteData=ueOIGRSKkd965FeEGM5JtQ**&ctf=False&ui=true&settings=Manual&from=';var p=document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0]||document.documentElement;p.insertBefore(s,p.firstChild); }},0);</script>

            and this dos not:

            <div id='MicrosoftTranslatorWidget' class='Dark' style='color:white;background-color:#555555'></div><script type='text/javascript'>setTimeout(function(){{var s=document.createElement('script');s.type='text/javascript';s.charset='UTF-8';s.src=((location && location.href && location.href.indexOf('https') == 0)?'https://ssl.microsofttranslator.com':'http://www.microsofttranslator.com')+'/ajax/v3/WidgetV3.ashx?siteData=ueOIGRSKkd965FeEGM5JtQ**&ctf=true&ui=true&settings=Manual&from=';var p=document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0]||document.documentElement;p.insertBefore(s,p.firstChild); }},0);</script>

            please advise

            thank you

              • How to get the Widget to NOT translate when you return to the site?

                Hello wondering if we could get hand with something

                Your widget works, great, but wondering if there was a way that when you return to the site, the widget does not automatically populate the translation on a return visit?

                It seems like the widget will cookie page so when you return it's translated already for you.

                Is it possible to turn that feature off?

                  • No option for specifying account when creating widget

                    When I try to generate code for the Translation Widget (here: http://www.bing.com/widget/translator) I no longer have an option for linking it to my API subscription. This option existed recently so I am wondering if it moved? The only code that I am able to generate contains the default siteData code (ueOIGRSKkd965FeEGM5JtQ**)

                      Linking to the API was previously available to enable CTF access. This feature is not currently available to new widget users. If you have used a CTF-enabled widget in the past, you should still be able to use it on new pages by copying the script from the widget you hosted in the past.

                      When I click "sign in" link on the translator widget on my development website I am directed to a blank page. I was able to log in successfully two weeks ago. Is this a recent bug?

                      • Switch manual translation off again? If the user chooses so

                        Hi,
                        I am using the Bing widget in my website. I have chosen 'manual' translation.
                        In part, it works fine; nothing happens until the user clicks 'translate'. When the user browses to other pages on the site it also automatically translates it; also wanted behaviour.

                        However, if the user switches translation off, and then browses to a new page, translation kicks back in again. This i don't want. There does not seem to be any way to stop automatic translation if the user has clicked 'translate' once.
                        Is there a way to fix this?
