Hi Lucia,

Disable in Preferences > Machine Translation under each MT engine. Go to Google Translate and de-select Enable Google Translator, similarly for Microsoft and WorldLingo.

Default is disabled and you have to add API key to enable Google and MS MT engines. WorldLingo does not need API Key but it is limited with few language pairs.

Thank you,

John

Hi Lucia,

On WF Pro 3 there is no option to disable it, only not to use it, which is the same:
Edit > Preferences > Machine Translation > clik on the option: Perform MT manually (Default)
You can then enable the option you prefer if you will use MT.

Cheers!

It is not related to this topic but three years ago, a big New York translation agency claimed that I used MT or Google Translate with their JP-EN urgent job, which was prohibited upfront. I declined and challenged them to proof of it. I used Trados Studio 2011 at that time. They kept silence since they know that I am a Ph.D. graduate related to software engineering from a Japanese university. I wonder how people can understand one's use or not use of MT in any CAT tools?
In fact, most JP-EN pair MTs is still not efficient as we know until now.
