Response time Extremely slow on MS Translator API RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am now using Translator API to translate input data from users in real time.

    But I found that the response time from the API is sometimes extremely slow.

    --- It takes 1 to 2 minute to translate only 5 to 6 characters and it certainly slow down my application

         (it normally takes only a few seconds)

    --- I am sure that I have enough quota.

    I wonder if there is request limit in a minute and if so, how can I upgrade the limit so 

    I can keep my service work perfectly? 

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    This is totally unsusual. For strings in the two to three thousands characters it should not take more than a few 100ms. Can you try again and tell us if you still see this behavior?

    Our service is up and running (just go to bing.com/translator and you'll be able to test for yourself the speed of translation for a several hundreds characters sentence) so I'm not sure how to help you out here if it is still the case and your internet connection is working fine.
