Hi all,

I wanted to test Google Translate in Studio. So, I've chosen Free Trial for Google Translate and got my API key. I used this key to activate Google Translate in Studio (in the list of TMs). Google Translate appeared in my TM list. "Enabled" and "Lookup" are checked. But when I try to work with a document, I get the following error message "An error has occurred whilst using the translation provider Google Translate: The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden." What could be the problem?

Maybe I use the wrong API key, but no available option seems to suit Studio. The options of API key are: Server key, Browser key, Adroid key and iOS key.

Thanks,

Boris

Free trial? Dec 11, 2014

Since when is there a "free trial" for Google Translate? AFAIK, there's no such thing. At least, it's not mentioned in their FAQ:

https://cloud.google.com/translate/v2/faq

Google Translate is a pay-as-you-go service and trying it will only cost you a few cents, but you have to sign up (again, AFAIK).

I believe the 403 error you got indicates you don't have a valid API key.

"Free" trial = bogus trial? Dec 11, 2014

My guess is that it's a bogus offer you have responded to, since, as others have said, there apparently is no such thing as a "free trial offer". I would run a check of my machine if it has resulted in some unpleasant visitors on my machine.

Guys, here the page where you can see Free Trial buttons: https://cloud.google.com/translate/#pricing.

Activating the paid plan resolved the problem. Thank you!

Yes, it suddenly struck me that even if it was a free trial, you probably had to activate the paid plan, though you should not be charge anything for the free period.

Did you manage to use the USD300 credit in the end? Oct 21, 2015

Hi Boris,
I've opened an account but my balance is still zero but I can see the 300 in the credits of my billing account...
Or you had to make a payment with CC to activate it?
