Machine translation in all three Wordfast clients

This video shows how to use machine translation (MT) in all three Wordfast clients: Anywhere, Professional and Classic. Wordfast Anywhere and Wordfast Classic support up to three different MT providers: Google Translate, Microsoft Translator and Worldlingo. For the time being, Wordfast Professional only supports Google Translate and Microsoft Translator.

    Since mid April, the Bing API key is not working anymore.

    How do you obtain a Microsoft translator API Key now?

      Unfortunately, it appears Microsoft has changed their policy:

      Bing AppID mechanism is deprecated and is no longer supported. As mentioned above, you must obtain an access token to use the Microsoft Translator API. The access token is more secure, OAuth standard compliant, and more flexible. Users who are using Bing AppID are strongly recommended to get an access token as soon as possible.

      Wordfast (and other CAT tool vendors) need to implement the new mechanism promoted by Microsoft. This requires using a “Client ID” and a “Client Secret”. The process of obtaining them is well-documented on the MemSource wiki and in a video of mine. MemSource already supports the new authentication method based on access tokens. Hopefully Wordfast will follow suit.
