  • Hi Ruben,

    to achieve this, set the Boolean flag IncludeMultipleMTAlterneratives in the options parameter of the GetTranslations method.

    Key to ratings:

    5: MT's 1-best response

    0: Artificial rating (generated from MT's n-best list)

    1: Anonymous entry

    Anything else: Human rating on your own account, added via the widget or the AddTranslation() method.

    Let us know if this makes sense,

  • GonzaloSP,

    The documentation for the Translator API is here: http://api.microsofttranslator.com. There is an interactive SDK available here: http://sdk.microsofttranslator.com

    Hope this helps!

  • Hi Vikram

    I've been trying to get hold of the sdk, but it doesn't seem to be available on link above or elsewhere... Has it been discontinued? Thanks.

  • Hi Ruben,

    indeed the interactive SDK doesn't exist anymore, but the traditional SDK documentation with sample code is here: http://aka.ms/translatormsdn.

    Can we help with a specific pointer to something?

  • Hi Chris,

    Thanks for your answer. I'd like to use the n-best translations and word align features to investigate cases where the MT output does not turn out as expected. Any tip on the best way to do it will be greatly appreciated. Cheers,
