    • Improve documentation for the Hub API

      The only documentation I can find for it is: https://hub.microsofttranslator.com/swagger

      Unfortunately this isn't very helpful as it doesn't give proper request examples, and the "Try it out" buttons don't work as they require a WorkspaceIdentifierHeader, but don't give a way to enter it.

      Is there proper documentation for this API?

      Thanks,
      Alex.

        • Azure Metric monitoring grayed

          I would like to ask you for a favor – we are now using the MS Translator inside Azure portal and having difficulties displaying the Metric Monitoring report. The problem is that the filtering fields are grayed, so I can’t start to use it. See the snapshot.

          According to the https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/monitoring-and-diagnostics/monitoring-supported-metrics, cognitive services should have some basic metric available (see the Microsoft.CognitiveServices/accounts section).

          Could you please point me the best way to seek for help?

          Thank you,

          • Document the 'category' translation option

            The closest thing I can find to a list of categories that can be passed into Translate/TranslateArray calls in this StackOverflow answer: http://stackoverflow.com/a/24825467/567249

            It would be nice if an official list was included the API documentation.

            • How will free subscription tier work after Azure Free 30-day trial expires?

              I am a regular user of the Translator free 2,000,000 chars per month service. To continue, I signed up, as required, for a new Azure account. But Azure says that is only a 30-day Free Trial.

              What happens to the free Translator after the 30-day Azure trial has expired?

              Thanks.

                Hello and thanks for using Microsoft Translator.

                You have subscribed to the 30 day free trial for Azure.

                After 30 days you need to continue the Azure subscription before you can continue using an Azure service such as Microsoft Translator text API.

                As soon as you have signed up for an Azure subscription you may consider the pay as you go. As of then the Microsoft Translator “free up to 2 mio characters per month” is available.

                Please find more information here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/free/free-account-faq/

                Best regards,

              • Where in the Azure Portal can we see the current character usage?

                It was easy to see how many characters had been used within the DataMarket, but I cannot find where this information is within the Azure Portal.

                    Thanks for using Microsoft Translator

                    When you are ready to deploy your custom dictionary from the Microsoft Translator Hub you need to move your Microsoft Text API subscription to a paid tier as S1 pay as you go.

                    Please find more information on how to create a dictionary here: https://cognitive.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/1166938-hub-building-a-custom-system-using-a-dictionary-o

                        • I want to customize Microsoft Translator (neural) using Microsoft Translator Hub

                          Hi,
                          I have never used a Microsoft Translator hub.
                          Can I use Microsoft Translator hub to tune the output of a Microsoft Translator (neural)?
                          If you read the next sentence in this URL, you can interpret it that way.

                          https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/translator/translatorapi.aspx
                          'Microsoft Translator can be customized both pre-publishing, with the Microsoft Translator Hub, and post-publishing, with the Collaborative Translation Framework (CTF).'

                          Thank you.

                                Hi Team

                                We've just switched to Azure. However, after a few hours, we got error msg "Out of call volume quota".

                                A post on stackoverflow.com mentioned Azure now add restrictions on number of calls can be made (100?) for free tier users.

                                Is that true?

                                Thanks
                                Davis

                                • How can I use neural machine translation API?

                                  Hi,
                                  I am trying to use python to access microsoft text translation API and my pricing tier is F0 free. The translated results are generated by statistical machine model. I was wondering how can I use the new model (neural machine model) instead of the old one? Thanks!!

                                    • Microsoft/Cognitive-Speech-TTS Java sample not working

                                      I tried the Microsoft/Cognitive-Speech-TTS Java sample on GitHub. It gets a new access token, using my Cognitive TranslatorSpeech api key. However, the example fails with this error:
                                      java.io.IOException: Server returned HTTP response code: 403 for URL: https://speech.platform.bing.com/synthesize

                                      The GitHub example is here:
                                      https://github.com/Microsoft/Cognitive-Speech-TTS/tree/master/Samples-Http/Java/TTSSample/src/com/microsoft/cognitiveservices/ttssample

                                      Can anyone suggest what the problem may be?

                                          Hi Adarsh,

                                          it is expected that the first few requests succeed. Translator lets your request pass before it has verified your account status.
                                          Please visit https://portal.azure.com and create a subscription to Microsoft Translator – Text API, copy the key to your application.

                                        • 1008 - Too many binary messages.

                                          hi
                                          in some case we are getting 1008 error code on websocket.

                                          in the documentation (http://docs.microsofttranslator.com/speech-translate.html), there are some error codes, like 1001, 1011, but not 1008.

                                          it seems for us that Azure closes the websocket connection, with this error code, in certain cases. the question is why this happens?

                                          thanks

                                            Translator closes the websocket connection after a period of inactivity. You will want to silently recreate the websocket connection when you receive this error.

                                            That is generally a good thing, because you won’t be charged for the time the connection is not open.

                                            The docs could be better in documenting the techniques for keeping the connection alive and the associated messaging. I’ll see to making that happen.
