How to Use Batch Translator

Vovsoft Batch Translator requires IBM Cloud Language Translator API which can translate up to 1,000,000 characters per month for free.

Please be aware: IBM Cloud has started to require credit card information for newly opened accounts.


How to get API Key and API URL

In order to get your API key and API URL, please follow the steps:

  1. Go to https://cloud.ibm.com/registration and create your IBM Cloud account for free.
    Please Note: If you get this error message "Your account cannot be created at this time", use your Gmail email address. It seems like IBM Watson doesn't like some email providers. So, if you have any such problems, just use another email address.
     
  2. Go to https://cloud.ibm.com/catalog/services/language-translator and create your Language Translator Lite Plan instance.
     
  3. Go to https://cloud.ibm.com/resources; under Services and software tab, click on your Language Translator instance. Your credentials (API key and URL) will be displayed in Manage page.

IBM Cloud Credentials

Enter your API key and URL into the Settings panel inside Vovsoft Batch Translator. The software is now ready to translate multiple texts at once.

This program can't be used without to be a professional of IBM service I followed the steps but I can't create "Language Translator Lite Plan" IBM say me thing that I can't understand... You're software can't be used by a normal human. Won't download this except if you are a god of the TI

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.

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.
