I'm trying to help someone who wants to get a reg key for Bing Translator, following the instructions here:

New Microsoft Translator API with Client ID and Client Secret

http://wordfast.fi/blog/cat-tools/2012/05/01/new-microsoft-translator-api-with-client-id-and-client-secret/

He's stuck at the point where he has to 'enter a redirect URL'. What could this mean?

Are the instructions still valid?

Dominique, if you are reading this. It took some time until I found the article on your great CATguru site. Would it be possible that you add a search field for the article titles?

redirect url not important Dec 22, 2015

the last I checked, the OAuth flow that MS is using for the Translator API doesn't make use of this value, although for some reason it is a required field on the form. You can just put any valid website in there. In fact, depending on how they've programmed the auth API you might be able to enter any validly-formed url, even if it isn't a real website, but I've never tried that.
