A question about free subscription RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am new here, I'm using the free Microsoft Translator (2million characters / month) plan.

    I was wondering what happens if I run out of my allowed limit, i.e. 2 million characters in one month. Will all the requests return an error or will I be automatically upgraded to the next available plan?

    I want to know this before integrating this into something that I am working on.

    Thanks!

  • Hello Suttit,

    after you run out of characters on a free subscription, the API will respond with an error. You will get another 2 million at next month's anniversary of your subscription: the same day you subscribed, next month.

    You can avoid running our of characters by subscribing to the lowest level of the paid subscription, for US$40 per month, and choose auto-renew. With auto-renew, you are automatically re-subscribed when you run out of credit, at the same volume, starting a new subscription month that day. You'll have another 30 days to use up the subscribed volume.

    Let us know if this makes sense,
