Is anyone having problems with what appears to be Google Translate interacting with WordFast? I have WF Classic 6.03 and MS Office 365 (MS Word 2013). When I Start Translation/Next segment, I get a message box from WordFast reading “Make sure your Google credential is correct.” Then I get the usual box to enter the segment translation, but below it immediately appears another box populated with something along the lines of:

GT ▸ { “error”: { “errors”: [ { "domain": "usageLimits", "reason": "keyInvalid", "message": "Bad Request" } ], “code”: 400, “message”: “Bad Request” }}
MS ▸ Argument ExceptionMethod: Translate()Parameter: Message: The Web Token must have a signature at the end. The incoming token did not have a signature at the end of the token.message id=3802.V2_Rest.Translate.2F07F821
WL ▸ TEXTS FOR TRANSLATION CONTINUATION

where the last line (“WL”) is a machine translation of the original segment.

Any idea why this happens and how I can make it stop?

Thanks!

I had a similar problem in wfp 3.1.5 about invalid credentials- I now understand that GT works only with licensed version and not with demo.

To clarify Oct 18, 2013

What I want is to be able to STOP Google Translate from volunteering. I just want WordFast to function as before, giving me a blank segment to fill in.

Hi Phoebe,

Go to Edit > Preferences > Machine Translation. Then, go to Google Translate and make sure Enable Google Translate is unchecked.

Please let me know if this solves your issue.

Sincerely,

Kristyna

Go to preferences and uncheck Google. MT is optional, so you can check/uncheck whenever you want.

In WordFast, I went to the MT tab and unchecked the "use web-based MT" option. Success!

Thank you Kristyna and Srini!
