Machine Translation Service Applicatrion and the MicroSoft Translator Hub RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    So we are looking at setting up Machine Translation SA and the steps according to TechNet appear to be

    1 - Create the Service App

    2 - Configure it

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj553772.aspx

    I can't see in the configuration any reference to where it goes to on the internet to do the translations. Does this have to be configured separately? Does it go somewhere by default unless otherwise configured?

    At the bottom of the article it states "You can configure the Machine Translation Service to use the custom translation system by passing the category ID in the MachineTranslationCategory parameter."

    What does the Machine Translation service use if you don't configure a custom translation system using the Translation hub?

    Thanks

  • Hi Jon,

    If you use the cloud-hosted machine translation service, then you do not need the Microsoft Translator Hub.

    If you use Microsoft Translator Hub instead, then you can build your own machine translation system using your preferred terminology and style specific to your industry, linguistic, domain, or organizational needs.

  • Hi Jon,

    If you set the Machine Translation Service Application to use “Use default internet settings” in Online Translation Connection section, then the requests will be sent to the cloud-hosted machine translation service.

    http://blogs.technet.com/b/wbaer/archive/2012/11/12/introduction-to-machine-translation-services-in-sharepoint-2013.aspx

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj163145%28v=office.15%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

    When the Machine Translation Service application processes a translation request, it forwards the request to the Microsoft Translator cloud-hosted machine translation service, where the actual translation work is performed.

    And the Microsoft Translator service has its own translation systems to do the translation work.

    Thanks,

    Victoria Xia

  • Thank you for the response

    So we have a global deployment with a large user base and they want to start using machine translation to translate docs and sites - are you saying that they don't need an account on translation hub at all to use this service? - They could be using it intensively...

    Also - what is the benefit then of having an account on Translation hub and of creating a custom translation system?

    Thanks again
