sounds good to me Aug 5, 2011

That seems fair enough to me.
100,000 characters free-of-charge per day is ample for a translator.
Depending on language combination, this is can be be over 10,000 words per day, right?

I wonder how this will be implemented by SDL in Studio...

Per user of the API, or per user of the user of the API? Aug 5, 2011

Yes, but if CAT Tool X uses Google Translate, do all users of the tool count up to the single "user" that Google identifies in its 100k character limit?

It combines Google translator and SDL's own MT solutions.
