CT-L1 - ChatGPT

Hi Igor,

I am trying to test your new CT-L1, but am getting:

"ChatGPT service is not available - Server returned HTTP response code: 429 for URL:"

I have entered a working API key.


Hi Micheal,

During the tests, I got this message a few times. The HTTP 429  code - too many requests response status code indicates the user has sent too many requests in a given amount of time.

Interestingly, I seem to always have the same problem when using ChatGPT with GT4T: if I try to use my own API key, it never works, and I am shown some kind of error indicating that I have sent too many requests (even though this is not the case). However, if I then switched to GT4T's built in ChatGPT, it does work. In a nutshell, I have never been able to use my own API key in GT4T.

Here testing it on Mac, Windows and Linux, the error code appeared only 3 or 4 times during the testing period. I even suspected it might be related to their server overload or similar. However, if you did not tweak default settings (eg. by changing the model), it is puzzling why you get this error response all the time. 

Same here (Linux Ubuntu 22.04 LTS). "ChatGPT service is not available - Server returned HTTP response code: 429 for URL:"
I've added billing information and tried again, but this error keeps coming up.

 Scratch that. It works now.

I've been searching the web for the similar cases. Please, see some suggestions in the comments here:





Can ChatGPT add the tags?


Yet another pane to look at for suggestions. Would be good if ChatGPT could be integrated into the stack of MT engines pane.


Some ideas / suggestions / wishes:

  • Make the big buttons in the ChatGPT subpane optional. Enable them via Modifier key+click or the context menu.
  • Store the selected glossary in the project template.
  • Align the text in the ChatGPT subpane at the top of the pane instead at the bottom.
  • Assign a keyboard shortcut for easy transfer of the content of the ChatGPT subpane to the target segment editor (just like the MT systems).

Igor, can you make the font of ChatGPT the same as that of the other MT systems?

And can you place the names of at the MT engines at the bottom, when Tab bottom placement is chosen? Les distraction from the content of the Target Segment Editor...


Suggestion for a collapsed button bar for the ChatGPT pane:


This morning I read a boasting story of an agency or CAT developer who claimed that AI determined the correct grammatical gender, based on context.

Would be interesting to see if ChatGPT can determine singular and plural too, when German words don't differ here: Bolzen, Korken, etc.

I'll keep my eye on it.

This is perhaps a little overasking, Igor, but could you turn this purple a little down, please:


It is actually screaming for my attention constantly
