When following the directions it is rather simple to setup. It is rather limited in functionality in as far as only having 53 languages it's capable of translating, and not having a copy paste function that I've found as of yet. It also is lacking a "detect language" feature. I'm not aware of any advantage over Google Translate at this time, especially with Microsoft Edge now having the capability to basically make an api for sites like Google Translate so that anyone can "create an app" from pretty much any website for free. I can appreciate having another translation source from IBM that I probably wouldn't be aware of without your app but I've yet to need Google Translate and it be unavailable to me.

My Batch Translate program is registered, but for the third day I can't use it because I can't register in Cloud IBM !?

Meticulously followed all steps described above but Batch Translator failed to produce translation by generating the following error message: Error sending data (12175) A security error has occurred.

Hi Lou. We apologize for the inconvenience. It is a Windows 7 error message. Please install Windows updates in order to fix the problem, specifically this update.

Thank you Vovsoft Support for your feedback and the solution to the problem I faced with the software. You should make this explanation available to all since many are probably facing similar issues.

How to copy the translated text without having to generate a CSV file. Copying the translated text from the CSV file is laborious because instead of showing all the original text and then the translated text, the program shows sentence by sentence, original text and translated text.
