Microsoft Translator Updates
Today we’re rolling out an update to our machine translation functionality. We are replacing the old and deprecated Bing AppIDs with Windows Azure Marketplace authentication tokens, which, since recently, is the recommended way to use Microsoft’s machine translation API.
This means that all projects currently using Bing Translator as a machine translation backend will have to get new credentials and update their settings.
To enable the service, all you need to do is the following:
- Get a Windows Live account and sign in.
- Go to the Azure Marketplace Developer site and register your project.
- You will obtain a unique Client ID and Client Secret which you will use to update the settings of your project.
People translating your project using the online editor will be now able to use the functionality exactly as before.
