I am trying to activate Google Translate in Wordfast 3.2.2. I saw the video "How to obtain a Google Translate API v2 key", by Dominique Pivard. Unfortunately, the video refers to the old version of Google Cloud Console. I managed to activate the Translation API and entered my billing details. But when I click the API access tab, I do not see my API key. What should I do to obtain one?
Thanks as always for your help, AT

API & auth > Credentials Jan 16, 2014

Go to your Console, then select API & auth > Credentials. You should see your existing key, and be able to regenerate a new key if needed:

MT does not work automatically Jan 17, 2014

To see Google translations I have to click on the MT button on the toolbar, each time I change to a new segment. What should I do so that it works automatically? Regards, At

How do you move through segments? Jan 18, 2014

When you move through segments by using commit & move to next segment, WFP should automatically fill that segment with a google translation if the API has been activated.

In WFP settings, you should have enabled google translate, and select the proper settings for machine translation.

If you just click in a target segment, WFP will not automatically use machine translation. You will have to use the "next segment" button or keyboard shortcut, either of those, if I am correct.
