There might be some trouble when switching to the
new Microsoft API that comes with the newest build. Here is a short How-to.
Did I forget something?
When the trial period ends, the subscription is disabled.
To fix this, I'm copying from MS email support:
Please follow the below Steps to remove the spending limit:
Further this will renew the subscription into a regular Pay-As-You-Go offer.
Microsoft making our lives difficult again ;).
I still get this :( I'm so so mad right now...
This is really really weird... I've been using this for years and it's the first time it happens :S Thanks for the comment tre!
Judging from Google translate invoices, the MT server must be queried each time you move to a new segment. If you go through your segments again, it queries them once more... So I guess you can reach the limit without actually translating as many characters/words.
I usually stop MT after the first run, pressing Ctrl+Shift+F9 when I want to use MT on something.
Another solution can be to Create a TMX memory...
For now, you can use MyMemory. It usually uses Microsoft Translate (sometimes Google) for the primary result. It has a shorter limit though...
Register to MyMemory with your email (there is a 10000 words limit I think per day, and 500 characters per query or something like that) or try to use Cafetran's: https://mymemory.translated.net/doc/cafetran.php
Actually yes, I pretranslated a Trados project into trados to get those matches in the sdlxliff for translation into cafetran and it seems trados uses TM for pretranslation (as long as I know...) so all of my free characters gone away without use... By know, I just discovered we can get a free Google MT API for a year (with $300, that are $20 for every 1Million characters) so I'm using that by the time I get my free Microsoft MT characters again.
Thanks for the SO QUICK replies!
You're amazing :)
By the way, tre, I tried to re-open a new account and it's kind of hard, you need a new Profile (no same phone number, no same credit card and no same billing details, so you just need to be another person hehe).
