Wordfast Classic custom MT 319 error when trying to run it
Thread poster: Wojciech Brożek
Mar 17

Hey,
I'm trying to integrate a custom MT for my Wordfast Classic. The example provided by the docs is not working though, when I try to run it by clicking "Test":

[name=1-CU:wojtek]url=http://www.worldlingo.com/S000.1/api?wl_data=Hello%20world&wl_srclang=en&wl_trglang=fr&wl_password=secret

I get error message saying "319" and nothing else. Is there a way to fix this? I would really like to use a simple translation tool my son wrote for me. Thanks

Which version of WFC and which version of Word are you using?

Hey guys, thanks for replying. this is latest office 365 + latest wordfast classic (8 is it?) + windows 10 with all updates so pretty standard I guess

1. Tell us: what happens when you click this link or paste this link in your browser's address field?
http://www.worldlingo.com/S000.1/api?wl_data=Hello%20world&wl_srclang=en&wl_trglang=fr&wl_password=secret

2. Secondly, the string to use in WFC itself is not the same as the string that is used in the browser's address field. The string above is simply meant for testing the engine in a browser.

I don't have WFC8 myself, but the user manual says:
wfc mt setup
Is that what you've done?

I would assume that you can also use this string:
url=http://www.worldlingo.com/S000.1/api?wl_data={ss}&wl_srclang=en&wl_trglang=fr&wl_password=secret{jsonkey=}
...if you want to force the MT engine to always assume the source language is English and the target language is French, regardless of the project's actual settings.

3. Where does the "[name=1-CU:wojtek]" come from? Sorry, I don't use this feature myself, so that's why I'm asking.

yeah so the link works fine, (0 "Mundo") is being displayed.

the ""[name=1-CU:wojtek]"" part is automatically appended when I click on anything so I assume it's something that the macro expects. Even if I hardcode everything it still fails with "319" error, I assume it's something deeper than just an invalid URL schema. Maybe a developer could have a look.
best regards
