Microsoft Translator Moves to the Azure portal

The Microsoft Translator service has moved to Azure. An update to MAT’s Microsoft Translator provider and user provided Azure account subscription is required to continue accessing Microsoft's machine Based translations. Without the update, you will see the following message:

“TranslateApiException: Invalid authentication token. Microsoft DataMarket is retired. Please subscribe to Microsoft Translator, in the Cognitive Services section at Please visit to find detailed instructions. : ID=0824.V2_Soap.GetTranslations.4EEAF6E3”

MAT v4.0.1810.0 (VS 2015 / VS 2013) and v4.0.6810.0 (VS 2017)* contain the required provider update. With this update the Microsoft Translator provider needs to be configured to use your Cognitive Services subscription for proper operation.**

* MAT for VS 2017 installation does not include the editor. Be sure to install the editor from MAT v4.0.1810 if not already installed / upgraded.
** The Microsoft Translator provider no longer provides unlimited access to machine translations.  The free subscription tier continues to be offered for monthly use up to 2 million characters.  See Cognitive Services Pricing for more information about pricing
