Bing error message RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am new with Bing translate App but I can't use it. It keeps sending me this error message:

    Argument ExceptionMethod : Translate ()Parameter:Message:The Web token must have a signature at the end.The incoming token did not have a signature at the end of the token.message id=5005.V2_Rest.Translate.2BB8C9DC

    I registered my application and get both the client ID and client secret.

    Please help me to resolve it.
    Thanks in advance

  • Hi Marci,

    The Bing Translator App that is available in the Windows Store and Windows Phone store does not require users to register for a client ID and secret, it uses its own.

    If you are developing your own application using the API, please follow the documentation at http://aka.ms/translatormsdn. The most likely issue is that the token you are passing in the appid parameter does not conform to the expected format, possible due to double URL encoding, or a missing URL encoding. Best is to define a client ID and secret that do not require URL encoding.

    If you are using an application that requires you to input a client ID and secret, you may want to contact the application developer. Using a client ID and secret that are plain us-ascii characters without space or punctuation may help. In any case, please let us know what application that is.

    Thanks for your use of Microsoft Translator,

  • Hi Chris, 

    Thanks for your reply.

    I am using the Bing Translator with a toolbar app which requires the client ID and secret. I use the application  Terminotix Toolbar from http://www.terminotix.com/ with MS Word 2010.

    As I said before I used the client ID and secret I followed all the steps required by the terminotix toolbar but it still does not work. This is the error message that I get:

    Argument ExceptionMethod: Translate()Parameter: Message: The Web Token must have a signature at the end. The incoming token did not have a signature at the end of the token.message id=5641.V2_Rest.Translate.34143CA0

    I am a translator, not very tech-savvy I must admit, so that is why I am at a loss now.

    Hope you can help me.

    Thanks again,
