Bing translator: Can you move domains but keep community translations in place? RRS feed

  • Question

  • The problem is that a large website is changing domain names. We have yet to install the bing translate widget and set up the collaborative translation framework. As far as I know, this isn't possible. On the widget page you are asked for your email (microsoft ID) and website URL, and bing spits out the widget code.

    Is this possible? I want to say no but wanted to double check.

  • Hi bmac84,

    Yes, you can keep community translations in place. The element that ties them together between your old domain and your new domain is a common API account. If you use the same Translator API subscription, your edits are shared between the two domains. 

    Let us know how it goes,

  • Interesting, thanks for the help Chris.

    Quick add-on question: The client is a company that has control of 3 smaller entities and we want to use bing translate on each. Will there need to be three accounts, one API subscription per site?

    Thanks!

  • You can use the same subscription on multiple sites.
