  • Hi Tokach,

    Tbot is online.  http://blogs.msdn.com/b/translation/archive/2010/05/06/bot.aspx provides some details on the Tbot commands.  Make sure that you sign off Messenger and re-sign in next time you try.  Let me know how it goes.  Takako (Microsoft Translator Team)

  • this is wrong.  I also am clicking on tbot and it does not join the conversation.  the icon is not showing and also no translator.  But if you click on it again, it says "tbot is already in this conversation"  but nothing.  no icon. no words.  nothing.  I am needing it.  I began to plan a trip to latin america, speaking many weeks with someone and finalizing this trip for the next two to three weeks.  This is serious timing.  Do you have another translator that is automatic when tbot is down?  copy and pasting conversations into google is killing my eyes.  every word, theirs and mine.  wooow.  I need tbot or something similar.  This is microsoft, larger than God in tech, someone tell me what this would take days or weeks.

  • My God,,,,,,,    You saved me !!  I almost lost a future girlfriend since she was not getting an understanding of what i tried to tell her short notice from my phone.  (old phone, won't open google translator)   This was killing me.  I am new here, can you tell me,  how often does this happen and why was there no messages here since April of old issues?  I am happy you fixed it (who ever you are ) and THANKS

    Now tell me for the future.  Wasn't at one time when the 'tbot' would not work, you had an alternate name?  I have no idea what a bot means anyways.
