How to Use Subtitle Translator

Date Last updated 3 months ago
Rated 3.8 / 5 (5 reviews)

Vovsoft Subtitle 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

You have your IBM Cloud credentials for Language Translator service now. You can run Vovsoft Subtitle Translator and enter your API key and API URL into the Settings. After these steps, Vovsoft Subtitle Translator should be ready to translate subtitles.

Hello. I'm trying to account for IBM for API. Everything goes well to the point where the card must be checked for payment. I enter the details, it shows that it is checking, I do the certification from the bank but there it stops and tells me that it is not accepted. the bank accepts it. I tried it with a second account at IBM. There is the same problem. What should I do? If I can not proceed with the procedure with IBM then the program is useless to me. IBM must have a problem at this point. Best Regards Pana

1. Where can i find url api key? Because I copied the url and the translator doesn't work! Please help in more detail! 2. To translate a subtitled file {*.srt} (multiple text on multiple lines) do I need to have a paid plan in IBM Cloud? Because your software doesn't translate anything. I mean, it's useless.

Hi Teodoru. Our software requires an API key. You can get it without having a paid plan. Please follow the steps described above. IBM Cloud's interface seems complicated but it is worth the effort.

I agree. It’s easier to throw the text into Google translator and translate.
