When you are subscribed to the S1 pricing tier, Pay As You Go, for either the Microsoft Translator Text API or Translator Speech API in the Azure portal, you receive a day-by-day report of your consumption in a.csv file in the Azure billing portal. To view the report, follow the steps below.
There is a 24-hour delay between the actual consumption and when it is displayed in the report. To see the Microsoft Translator API consumption, filter by Meter Category = Cognitive Services. The report will display one line per day per service.
Consumption reporting for all other tiers, F0, S2, S3 and S4, will be available this summer 2017. The S2, S3 and S4 pricing tiers are monthly commitment tiers and when you reach the monthly commitment volume for those tiers during a subscription month, your usage goes into Overage. Generally, you will see a quantity of "1" in the Daily Units column in the .csv file. You'll know you're in Overage when you see in the "Daily Units' column a Quantity greater than "1".
To view the report (.csv file):
1) Visit https://account.windowsazure.com/Subscriptions
2) Choose the name of your Azure subscription
3) Choose the "Download usage details" link, on the right side of the page
4) Choose "Download usage"
You can also get a graph for the current billing period, in the Overview section.
