  • Hi  Chris!

    Hmm, my "gut feeling" said something similar and I'm glad that you confirmed it;) So far I've just tested it through HTTP-requests through the web-browser. As soon as I get the time to make a quick C#-hack I'll let you know about my findings.

    Many thanks!

  • Peter,

    using C#, the SOAP interface is more appropriate for you. Just add http://api.microsofttranslator.com/v2/soap.svp as a web reference, and programming against the API is as easy as pie.

  • Hi @kodo65,

    Not sure if its a good idea to disclose appid. Trying above url worked, so appears to be valid even now...

  • That's right, it is not a good practice to publish your account credentials.

    Also note that appids are deprecated. The Microsoft Translator service is using Azure Marketplace credentials, which are much safer than appids. Until you publish your credentials on a public forum.
