Hello all
I need to translate a document with the following language combination: German to Italian.
I tried to add a translation memory from the Add list "SDL BeGlobal Community", I get an error, there is no support for this language combination! (Is this correct?)
Then I tried to add SDLBeGlobal Enterprise, and I get into a wizard widow that, redirects me to SDL BeGlobal Online, then it is asking me account ID etc... Any Idea what this is?
So then I tried to add the SDL automated translation service, and again the system tells me there is no support for this language combination. Come on!
Then I tried to add the Google Translate option, I created my API key account, however when starting to translate the first row of my document, SDL Trados returns an error through the messages window: "The remote server returned an error: (403) forbidden."
So at the end I still wasn't able translate a single word from German into Italian with SDL Trados? Is this correct or did I miss something?!
I'll appreciate any help

On the BeGlobal message... Aug 18, 2013

... I think the free BeGlobal baselines support German to English/French/Spanish at the moment so this is probably why you receive the message about an unsupported language pair.

The Enterprise Account is there for users who are connecting to a BeGlobal facility that has been set up specifically for a particular Company. So the engines will have been trained for their material and it will be there for their use only... so you need the login credentials for that.

The 403 error message when you tried to use Google...not sure on that one. Maybe you are behind a firewall blocking access to Google Translate? Not sure... I just tested this combination with Google and it worked fine for me:

You can of course translate in this language pair without Machine Translation, but I guess it's a less common requirement so not so freely available.

Thanks! Aug 18, 2013

I'll check the firewall and the BeGlobal.
