Hi,

I got the API key since November 29. The billing is 0.00 USD.
There is the message 'An error has occurred whilst using the translation provider Google Translate: The remote server returned an error (403) forbidden.'

I have already checked all the AutoUpdate and Check for update.


1. In Billing page of google APIs console, I got the following information.

Billing
Billing is not enabled Learn more
Your billing information may take a few minutes to update. Please refresh this page for updates.
Enable billing

Unbilled usage (estimate, updated daily)
Start date Nov 29, 2011
Total (before taxes) 0.00 USD


2. So I clicked for check out. It directed me to google wallet
The message was,
Item
Price
Google APIs - Enable automatic monthly billing for project: xxxxxx
You will be automatically charged at the end of each monthly billing cycle.
$0.00
Tax has not been calculated yet.


3. I returned to Billing page. there was the same above message
Billing
Billing is not enabled Learn more
Your billing information may take a few minutes to update. Please refresh this page for updates.

I have never used google wallet, so google have no information about my credit card.

Thank you.

You have to click on Google Checkout and enter your credit card information into Google Wallet for billing purposes (GT is no longer free - there is a per-character fee) and then wait (48-72 hours) for your order to be processed by Google. Once your order is processed, your billing will be enabled and your key will function in your CAT tool and your credit card will be billed every month based on your usage. If you do not enter billing information, you cannot use GT in your CAT tool.

Not true. Wallet is updated almost instantly; I was able to use GT immediately after payment.
