Hello all,

Am I the only one who has integration problem with Google translate MT on Mac OS X Lion with WFP latest version ?

For some reasons it seems MT can pull only a few segments at a time before failing (current count is one segment) ! which results in a lot a lost time !

Thanks in advance !

MT Google Nov 3, 2011

It seems that Google MT is not functioning for free as a part of Wordfast Classic. I read somewhere that since the 1st December their MT will be available only as a paid service. Very courageous... and uninteresting!

See the beta list Nov 3, 2011

The current beta contains a PB command which maintains free GT integration through MSIE, using what Yves Champollion states is called "scraping", ie. basic copy/paste through the MSIE window.

It works, although there are occasional hiccups which can be solved by either disabling MT in the MT tab, or closing/relaunching Word.

I don't think copying that PB command in an earlier version of Wf would work, since the MT tab was recoded a few beta releases ago.

However, WRT to loss of time, this whole GT process is slow.

FWIW, the current beta (6.02h) seem to have issues with serving TM matches.

Just get a Google Translate API v2 key, see http://youtu.be/-KHq094SeWU?hd=1

Once you have your key, you can use it in memoQ, Wordfast Anywhere (http://youtu.be/19gBOO5xT58?hd=1) or Wordfast Classic (with the latest beta version). For Wordfast Pro, you'll have to wait a little. In the meantime, you can use Microsoft Translator with the AutoHotKey script posted by Yasmin.

Everybody is getting the problem with Google Translation API v1 Nov 3, 2011

No, everybody using API v1 is having the problem (see http://www.wordfast.net/?kb=188-32). You can upgrade to API v2 (see my other post) and use it in Classic or Anywhere. With Pro, you'll have to wait a little (the AutoHotKey script I mentioned in my other post won't work in OS X, since it's a Windows application).

GT API v2 is fast and reliable. And it's not expensive (I was charged $0.39 for my use of it in Oct-2011).

6.02i is out, seems like it fixed the issue.

6.02i came out AFTER my post. You and I were alerted by Yves' message to that effect.

Sorry, since you're known as "JL01" here, I have no idea who you are and whether you take part in discussions on the WFC beta list.
