Hi,

I have searched the forum before posting this. Almost all of them about using Google Translate.

My question is this. Is it possible to use Trados to work on files in my Google Translator Toolkit account?

Out of many considerations, I could not really adapt to Google Translator Toolkit interface and usage.

Reading about using Google Translate from TM section, I wondered if this is possible at all.

Thank you

Hakan

Google Translator Toolkit Oct 22, 2011

Now Google Translate API on Trados 2009 does not work smoothly (due to its policy change into paid service into API2 now). I use Google Translator Toolkit as supplements to Google 2009 and Google Translate API by copying and paste of each segment when Google says "Object reference not set to an instance of an object," a error message. When it recovers in a few seconds or minutes, I may not do copying and paste from Google Translator Toolkit to Trados 2009 Editor (*.sdlxliff file format). But the error message appears frequently and I need to rely on Google Translator Toolkit now and then. The most file type I use with Google Translator Toolkit is MS Word but other few formats are also OK.

Thank you for your reply.

I could not be that fast and efficient with Google Translator Toolkit. Therefore, I had to give up on one of the good rated jobs.

Seen a couple posting, I have thought for a moment that I can translate the files assigned to me in my Google Translator Toolkit account in Trados 2009 interface.

Thanks

Hakan
