  3. Special characters gets encoded after translation

    I'm using the text translator api to auto translate text. However some characters could get encoded when comes back from the api, which is surprising. For example, if I need to translate this text "> 12 days" into different languages. "fr" and "es" would encode ">" to "&gt" while "nl", "de" wouldn't change it.

    Correct result from en to nl:
    https://api.microsofttranslator.com/v2/ajax.svc/TranslateArray?appId=%22Tqu9huv-RrHgQf20iMFrVx1L5GOPE22QQHdlrcbnpI8M*%22&texts=[%22%3E+14+days%22]&from=%22%22&to=%22nl%22

    Encoded result from en to fr:
    https://api.microsofttranslator.com/v2/ajax.svc/TranslateArray?appId=%22Tqu9huv-RrHgQf20iMFrVx1L5GOPE22QQHdlrcbnpI8M*%22&texts=[%22%3E+14+days%22]&from=%22%22&to=%22fr%22

    You cannot currently pass carriage return in the URL string to Translator on Bing, but this feature is on the list of planned updates to the site. Thanks for your comment!
