I've been successfully using GT AutoSuggest for quite a long time. A few days ago, it stopped working - no suggestions are offered. The same happened on both my computers (desktop/laptop), and I've seen other users complaining about the same, so I guess something must have changed.
Is there a way to get GT AutoSuggest working as it did before (which was great)?
Thanks a lot in advance!
XingZeng said: "I will do the corresponding update shortly." Be patient, I'm sure there will soon be an updated version of the plugin. (It hasn't resumed working for me either.)
I spoke with the developer and it seems the reason it does not work anymore is because Google added CAPTCHA to the translation service used for this feature. The solution to this problem is for him to add to the UI so it asks the user to fill in the response for each Studio startup.
I don't have timescales on this but I know he's working on it.
Until then, or even instead of, you have the MT AutoSuggest. This can also use Google but of course you have to pay for that service. SDL Language Cloud would be free and perhaps a useful alternative if the support for your language pairs is there.
Thanks Paul, I may try MT AutoSuggest for the time being. Unfortunately Language Cloud does not support the language pairs I use (English-Greek, German-Greek) :(
It works again! Don't really know what happened, I didn't do anything, it just works again. Thanks so much! I really really missed it.
Edit: And now it has stopped working again. Sigh.
The developer has created one that requires you to enter a captcha every time Studio starts but we have not published it yet. There is a discussion going on about the legalities of the way it works and until this is resolved it won't be getting placed back on the openexchange.
You can of course use Google MT and then MT AutoSuggest if you find this gives you language pairs you can't get elsewhere or you think the quality is better. This is exactly the same result with the difference you need an API key from Google and have to pay for the translations.
