Unable to sign up for a free account! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am a developer. I want to use Bing text translator API for my own purpose. The docs state that I need to sign up for a free azure account and get an app key. I go to the signup page and it asks for my CC information which is not a big problem. But the real problem is that the state list only lists USA states whereas I live in China.

    I switched website language to Chinese, I then got a red banner notice that I could go to azure.cn for China region. But when I try to login using this account, I am greeted with an error page.

    Thanks for any help.

    Ignorance is blissful

  • The Azure free account is available in 140 countries where Azure is commercially available but does not include sovereign cloud products in US Government, Azure China and Azure Germany regions. Refer: Azure Free Account FAQ
