Detecting language please wait for.......
I experienced strange behavior from the ModernMT plugin after adding it later on in a project: WHenever I opened a file in the editor, I would be informed that there was a problem with the ModernMT translation provider and it would not work. To make it work, I had to open its settings, change some settings, apply, then open settings again, revert back to how it should be, and then it would work fine. Until I closed the file and opened another one, which would require the whole thing again.
Does anybody else experience that, too? Maybe Daniel McCosh ?
The quality of the translations from MMT is really good if you have custom terminology and a certain language style - it manages to "learn" that well and training the system could not be easier. The plugin feels a little bit shaky at times.
Have you tried contacting the developers of the plugin?
Off-topic, but that's a nice feature:
Which MT engine?

SDL Machine Translation Cloud.
Good, I like the feature, but it is very dominant in the layout of the page. Once people know it's available, is there a way to make it less eye-catching? Maybe include it in the "More" list of options ("Show available translations" or so)? Or have it in a regular font, in dark grey instead of bold and black?

Agreed... I have dropped an email to the community team already as I had the same thoughts on it. I wondered if it could be moved to the lower right and made smaller, maybe inline with the "Cancel - More" menu.
It seems Mats Linder also had a problem which was solved by reinstalling the plugin. https://community.sdl.com/product-groups/translationproductivity/f/openexchange_applications/27729/modernmt---can-t-add-it-in-the-tm-list. I'm in early stages of testing at the moment and haven't noticed this issue yet.
Hi Daniel McCosh
Mats issue was different. Mine is more specific. On the whole, the plugin works and I use it the whole time.
