      Two month ago, We move to Azure following this article https://translatorbusiness.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/1078534-microsoft-translator-on-azure

      We made the change to Azure and made a few test and it was working fine the first days. But few days ago we found that we can't use the service anymore.

      If i try to get an Access Token (http://docs.microsofttranslator.com/oauth-token.html), I have an error "QuotaExceeded": "Out of call volume quota. Quota will be…

        Dear admin,

        I inserted the key to start translating a document, integrated the document in the browser window and yet it doesn't seem to be processing as i cannot choose language nor press go.

              The app keeps saying I am off-line, and will not do speech recognition translation. I am online. I deleted and reinstalled the app, it's still the same. What can I do?

                            I like the fact that for many languages like Arabic translator had better features than the google translate. Also I got to use Cantonese recently which is absent in the google translate app. But unfortunately this app doesn't support Telugu, my native tongue. While using Telugu as a language for Bing search engine I found it's usage to be way more accurate that on Telugu version of Google search. Telugu on Google translate sucks.

                              When I sign up, after my Account Name i see two keys
                              Key 1
                              Key 2

                              So far I am using Key 1 successfully with header Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key for issueToken.
                              Key 2 works as well.

                              What is the difference?

                                Hi,

                                There’s no difference. After you subscribe to the Microsoft Translator API, you receive two keys – primary and secondary. You can specify either key.
                                The reason for two keys is so you can give one out (such as giving the secondary key to a 3rd-party company) and you can invalidate it by changing the key, without impacting your application (assuming you’re using the primary key for yourself).

                                Best regards,
                                Gwenda

                                  • 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?

                                        • 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...
