My Google Translate API suddenly stopped working. When I tried to use it, this error message came up: server returned http code 403( "daily limit exceeded"...)

Did anybody come across the same issue? How did you get it resolved? Thanks!

That's odd... I was not aware of a daily limit. But log in to your API account and check your usage.

Credit card change? May 10, 2016

It happened to me recently, too (not that I use GT too often.)

It had been caused by an apparent bank SNAFU, which had just sent me a new credit card with the same expiration date as the one I had reported lost.

I could not be sure, though, because of the impossibly complicated way to update/change a credit card in the Google Developers nonsensical UI. Also, no other merchant reported a problem with using the reissued credit card.

In the end, I was able to register a different credit card altogether, and the problem disappeared. However, I can't even be sure of the relationship between cause and solution, because I haven't used GT much since then.

Why do you need it? May 11, 2016

If you're using that much GT, something is wrong.
