What is Microsoft Bing MT?

Bing Translator is the free version of Microsoft’s MT engine available to the public. This is available as a plugin from memoQ. As with Google it is important to be cautious when sending material to Microsoft MT. Microsoft MT is a statistical machine translation platform and web service, developed by Microsoft Research.

How it works with memoQ?

memoQ sends text to this machine translation engine one segment at a time. The results are then displayed in the translation results and the translator can decide whether or not to use it.

What do you do if you want to use this service?

In order to integrate Microsoft MT with memoQ you need to enable it in Options | Machine translation. You must then enter your Azure Client ID and Client secret.
