Hi Everyone,

I would like to install the above. Can you help me please?
I know there is a plug-in that allows trados to check the google translate machine translation results, and that can even populate the target segment.

Where do I get it from? Any help appreciated.

First you have to get an API key from Google.
You can't do this from within Trados, you have to get out and go to Google.

It;s been a while since I did it, but I think you can get an API key from here-

This is a paid service - you'll need your credit card to hand.

Then they give you this long key - 20 or 30 random characters.
Then go back to Trados and try to start the Google Translate plug-in.
You simply paste the API key in when asked for it, and off you go.

The last time I looked at my card bill I think it was like 4 or 5 dollars.
I use Google Translate on Trados pretty much all the time.

Sorry to be so vague, but I think this is all you need to get started.
