  5. HELP

    HELP! I am having trouble with the latest update for Microsoft 365 Office ProPLUS. Before the update, I was able to use Translator for live captioning with no issues. However, ever since the school district update to ProPLUS, I can't see the Subtitle icon under Slide Show ribbon. Please help!

  6. Provide canned alignment for canned translations

    According to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/translator/reference/v3-0-translate#obtain-alignment-information, the user 'will not receive alignment if the sentence is a canned translation. Example of a canned translation is 'This is a test', 'I love you' and other high frequency sentences.'

    Could you please be consistent and provide a 'canned alignment' for canned sentences?

    Always getting alignment information is quite critical for our integration of the Translator Text API.

    Thanks.

  7. English to modified English grammar

    I'm working on a solution to convert between English and textual ASL (i.e. English with different grammar). I've organized the data but the translation pairs are extremely restrictive.

  8. Wrong automatic language detection with Microsoft Translator


    1. I'm using this api to translate text: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/cognitive-services/translator/reference/v3-0-translate


    2. When user key in the keyword "tidak", it gets English as detected language, which is wrong, because there is no such word in English. It is a Malay word which means "No".


    3. It is also the same when I tried manually in Bing Translator.


    Thanks.

  9. Translating text in Microsoft translator removes //(special chars)

    Hello

    I have been using cognitive paid service for translating text and I have been facing issue while translating text.


    1. When there are // or operators in bold, the // are deleted from the text . This has been observed with Bing translator too.


    2. Where there are japanese charachter the service is unable to translate the text. This happens when there are multiple languages and my cognitive service is already choosing the sorce language as auto-detect.


    Can you please suggest what can be done in such cases and how can I resolve this?

  11. Issue with EN-FR translation

    Hello,

    We have had an issue when using the Microsoft Translator Text API for EN-FR translation.

    In several instances (but not every instance) where a tag appears in the target (e.g. [1] or [2]) the tag is followed by the text "Je n'ai pas" even though the source doesn't make any mention of this. The random insertion of "Je n'ai pas" next to tags is creating non-sensical translations. We have only noticed this issue today but we have noticed it on a few EN-FR jobs across a range of text types.

    Many thanks in advance for your help.

    Kind regards,

  12. normalization of complete sentences

    The dictionary endpoint is translating words, but the translate endpoint doesn't know the word.
    I wanted to ask for 'Flugzeug' but made a typo 'FLugzeug' (capital L). Maybe we can normalize the words in translate as well.

    $URLDICTDEEN="https://api-eur.cognitive.microsofttranslator.com/dictionary/lookup?api-version=3.0&from=de&to=en";

    $URL

  15. Clearly identify special characters that are not supported in translation

    When using the translate endpoint, text sent with special characters ends up generating a 400 return with no details as to what input was causing the issue.

    So far, I have seen this problem with text containing ®, ™ and a non-breaking space.

    It would be nice to either have guidelines on which characters are allowed and which are not (documentation), or to have a debug flag on the service that would allow us to get more information on which characters are failing to be processed so that we can easily work around the problem.

  17. Please, send a notification and release notes with each new version of the translation engine

    We regularly (once a week) monitor the translation outputs of Microsoft Translator API with test set of 500 sentences. We have observed that the translation outputs change quite frequently, but just very seldom we get a notification from Microsoft regarding changes to the translation framework or the translation models that can explain the changes. It would really help to have regular notes with an explanation of what changes and what should be the expectations in the translation differences.

    Thanks.

  18. Request for a NoTranslate tag for publishers

    I don't know what category this belongs to and I just picked any old category. This is a general request for a feature for web publishers. It would be a big help if you could establish a standard tag for MS Translator that disallows translation of specific phrases, or offer publishers the ability to provide a translation glossary of some sort.

    For example, our organizational name King County can be mistranslated to mean some permutation of "Monarchy County" in some languages -- and we'd like it to default to its real name, as we would with other place names and…

  19. Bug - Translator Text API 3.0 error to translate documento in Markdown sintaxe

    I did some tests with in a simple app that I created, which uses the Translator Text API 3.0.
    But when I try to translate documents with the markdown syntax, the translation return adds spaces between the ###, which results in the text formatting problem.
    I would like to know how to make api ignore these spaces between the #.
    Thanks.

  20. BUG - values from dictionary lookup are incorrect.

    I'm using Microsoft's Translator Text API 3.0 dictionary lookup. It successfully provides a response but some of the numerical values are incorrect. It is responding with:

    confidence: 0.99, numExamples: 0 and frequencyCount: 0

    I'm sure this is incorrect! Here's my question I posted on stackoverflow hoping the 'Mircrosoft Translator' stackoverflow account would reply and help me out:
