Google Translate API will be shut off completely on 01.12

Postby TimVen » Fri Jun 03, 2011 9:36 pm

Hello!
Some information from http://code.google.com/p/jquery-translate/

"...Since the Google Translate API will be shut off completely on December 1, 2011 this plugin will use the Microsoft Translator service..."

So the question is: Will GTranslate still work after 01.12.2011 ? :(

Best regards,
TimVen

Of course it will work.

P.S. I think Google is going to offer a paid version of Translation service.

Google API closing soon, what will happen?

Postby Janz » Mon Jun 06, 2011 2:32 pm

Hi,

I have bought the lovely translation only few days ago and I soon after that I found that Google is planning to CLOSE DOWN the TRANSLATION API from December 2011.
You could read it here:
http://code.google.com/apis/language/tr ... rview.html

What will happen with our translations after that?

What are the plans for the gtranslate?

Thanks a lot!
Regards
Jan

Google Drops Translation API?

Postby miamiman » Mon Jun 06, 2011 5:38 pm

Hello Edvard,

I am sure you are aware of this.

http://www.searchenginejournal.com/goog ... ate/30198/
http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-200688 ... d-version/

Having recently purchased ~ 12 gtranslate pro licenses, I am wondering if that was a premature decision as Google is making changes?

Do you have an official position re: Gtranslate Pro and Google's Translation API.

Thanks,
miamiman

I have just announced new v3.14159 which supports Bing Translator along with Google Translate. After Dec 1 it will seamlessly migrate to Bing Translator. You just need to get a Bing Translator API key from http://www.bing.com/developers/createapp.aspx and insert it into config.php file.

If you turn on the USE_BING_TRANSLATOR option now, it will use Bing from now, otherwise it will start using Bing after Dec 1.

i have installed the ioncube to use GTRANSLATE with my PHP version, BUT i can NOT install SOAP, which is NEEDED for gtranslate using BING.

My question is: there will be a way to use BING without installing SOAP?
There will be SOAP installation service for the ones that cant do this automatically (i am on DREAMHOST)

IS it possible o use BING without isntalling SOAP?

SOAP installation service can be done by your hosting provider. There are some other ways to use Bing without SOAP, but it is not implemented currently.

Impact of Google Translate shut down

Postby arif » Wed Aug 03, 2011 11:59 pm

Hi,
I just saw (http://code.google.com/apis/language/tr ... rview.html) that the Google Translate API will be officially shut off as of 12/1/2011.

I'm not exactly sure how reliant GTranslate is on the API, but what impact will this have on GTranslate?

Thanks,
Ari

If you read in this forum accurately you can find that it will be not a problem.

See http://googlecode.blogspot.com/2011/08/ ... e-api.html

Google launched the indefinite paid API version this week meaning that if you enable billing, the service will still work for you after 1 December when the free service is disabled.

Translation costs $20 per million (M) characters of text translated (or approximately $0.05/page, assuming 500 words/page).

Thanks for the info! I think that it should be acceptable for many clients. You can just disable the languages you are not interested in to save traffic.

P.S. We always rely on "free" services like Google search, etc...
