  1. I found that the translator hub is still using SMT. So I wonder if there is any plan to move it to NMT?

    I post these questions as I found the translation quality is poorer when using the hub than only using the base microsoft translator. it now confuses me and I do not know how to choose between the 2 systems. So I think if they can combine together, that would be great

    • I want a function in excel similar to google sheets = GoogleTranslate - so MS translator can be copied for all rows rather than 1 by 1

      I can't find a way to copy the translation down so it performs the same operation for every row in a spreadsheet. You have to do it 1 row at a time following the process to translate. It would be great if a function existed like Google has =GoogleTranslate(cell,"from language","to language") - or am I missing a method to do this? Thanks.

      • How can I detect multiple candidate languages?

        If I submit Ginea Ekwatorjali, the Maltese name for Equatorial Guinea, it is detected as "eu" = Euskadi. "eu" is not supported but "mt" is.
        Is there or will there or can there be a service which will return the possible candidates for a language code for a given text, so if there is more than one we can pick one that works?

              • HTTP Error 413 on seemingly normal TranslateArray request

                I am posting the following XML requests to http://api.microsofttranslator.com/V2/Http.svc/TranslateArray endpoint

                https://bitbucket.org/snippets/juskrey/96Mzr

                Which is exactly 349 "Hello" strings in the attempt of translating to French.

                Works if we leave only 348 strings..
                Both files are attached to the aforementioned snippet

                • wordbee

                  Wordbee API

                  I use Wordbee, an online translation tool. When I choose Microsoft MT to pre-translate the source text, the numbers with brackets (e.g. [12,000] or [1.23]) will be translated into brackets with numbers (e.g., [] 12,000 or [] 1.23). It is so strange. Segments such as [20.2%] will also be translated into [] 20.2%.

                  I also asked this question a couple of days ago. https://microsofttranslator.uservoice.com/forums/291942-general/suggestions/15815941-wordbee-api
