Microsoft Translator API Service Announcement for Bing AppID

Postby alt_f4 » Fri Mar 02, 2012 2:53 pm

Received a mail from Microsoft today:

Dear Translator Partner,
You are receiving this communication because you are using a Bing AppID to call the Microsoft Translator API service.
This service announcement is to inform you that Microsoft Translator is deprecating the Bing AppID mechanism and replacing it with an access token which supports a more secure standards-based authentication (OAuth). If you already made this switch, you may disregard this announcement.
To continue using the Microsoft Translator API service without interruptions, you must obtain an access token by April 1, 2012.

To use our service with an access token, please follow the steps below:
1. Subscribe to the service through Windows Azure Marketplace. Free service is still available at a volume usage limit of 2 million characters per month.
2. Register your application on Marketplace (keep your Client ID and Client Secret confidential).
3. Obtain an access token here.

Will I need to do anything else with my application when I migrate?
Yes, you will need to make slight modifications to your application by following the instructions here.

What happens if I don’t migrate from a Bing AppID to an access token?
When the Bing Translator AppID is deprecated, it will no longer be valid and you will not have access to the service.

I guess, GTranslate has to be migrated to the new Service (Google is no option cause of $$$ for Translation-API)?
Am I right?

You may still use Google with no problems, there is no need to migrate.

However there will be a need to update your Pro version before April 1st if you are using Bing currently. The new version will be announced when ready.
