MS Translator Bookmarklet Gone?

    Question

  • I am not sure which Forum Category this belongs in. I guess MS thinks we are all internet experts.

    I had a bookmarklet in my toolbar that allowed me to translate webpages with one easy click of the button. It has recently been disabled within the past month or two. And, I can not find it anywhere online to reinstall it. I do not like having to copy and paste the address all the time for every webpage I am viewing. It was quite useful to me.

    Can anyone tell me if this still exists? Where can I find it again? Or, is there an equal substitute someplace?

    It was a one click translation program from MS that sat in my toolbar for easy use. It was not Bing or Google Translate. Any ideas on a replacement for it?

  • Yes the OP does mean that bookmarklet that you linked to...

    However, to be of any help to either of us whatsoever, please tell us if Microsoft link you posted works for you, because it certainly does not for me, & I doubt it does for the OP either....

    OP, thankyou for being the seemingly only other person in the world to be aware of my favorite bookmarklet's tragic end, though lets hope it's only temporary....

    If you had read the OP's post closely, they mentioned it had been disabled... Which seems to be the case, & frustratingly enough for months now I have been unable to find any tidbit of information in relation to it, be it either official or unofficial...

    To compound this frustration, I find this post, & in response I find not only an unhelpful answer, but also someone attempting to shutdown the OP completely by directing them to another site & proposing said response as an answer, get out of town. Sure, it may not be the right place to ask this, but the OP stated that...

    Sorry to vent these frustrations but please anyone with any info on this, please feel most welcome to post it here...

  • Thanks for chipping in...

    Uservoice forum is not related to this thread's topic, & contains nothing in any way to do with said bookmarklet...

    I am therefore thinking I may have misunderstood your post, what exactly has been retired and moved?

  • Hi Dave,

    That forum is also closed and the announcement clearly tells people to use the UserVoice site which you suggested multiple times:

    Do you have questions or feedback about the Microsoft Translator API service, the Translator Hub, or the Translator Web Widget? You can now submit them to our new UserVoice site at translatorbusiness.uservoice.com

    Just like this MSDN forum, UserVoice lets you report any issues and get answers to your questions. You can now also vote on new ideas to help guide our product features and developments, and stay up to date on new product features.  The transition to this more modern and flexible platform will help us be more reactive to your needs, because it quickly makes visible to us, and everyone else, what is important for you and other partners using Microsoft Translator.

    Please post any new issues to translatorbusiness.uservoice.com. After March 1st, this page will be read-only-- you will no longer be able to add new questions or comments, and you will not be able to receive further comments from other users.

    As always, you can read more about all Microsoft Translator product updates on our blog, or by following us on Twitter, LinkedIn, as well as Facebook for our consumer offerings such as our apps.

    Well no actually, the questions were solely about the Microsoft Translator Bookmarklet, something your link & post say nothing about.... Sadly :(

    Appears it has been discontinued.
