Urgent! remedy for server error

Dear users,

If you received an error when using GT4T, please go to download the updated version and install again.

The error goes:

“error”: {
“errors”: [
“domain”: “usageLimits”,
“reason”: “accessNotConfigured”,
“message”: “Access Not Configured”
“code”: 403,
“message”: “Access Not Configured”

Wordfast Pro tags now can be handled properly.

Inside Wordfast Pro, when a segment containing a tag “{ut1}, {ut2}”, Google Translate cannot handle the tags properly: GT will add unnecessary spaces before and after the tags and tags are capitalized.

GT4T has been updated addressing this issue. Now the resulting will have spaces around the tags just as the source text!

GT4T, more than machine translation.

NO Worries. GT4T will stay after December 1st

Dear GT4T users,

Many of you have heard of the deprecation of Google Translate API. But please don’t worry about GT4T. It will definitely work after December 1st and all current and future GT4T users do not have to pay extra to Google. In fact I have already started to pay Google.

GT4T has been updated to cope with the Google policy change. Please update to version 4.25 and enjoy the time saved!


Please update your gt4t to version 4.25

Dear GT4T users,

As Google API v1.0 will be out of service starting from December 1st, GT4T has updated to switch to Google API v2.0. I tried to remove all the dependencies on API v1.0 to ensure a smooth transition.

But expect some bump in this transition period! Feel free to contact whenever you need help.



GT4T license price will rise starting from November

Starting from November, 2011, GT4T license prices will double and the no-time-limit licenses will stop selling.
Google Translate is now a paid service and I pay for all the usages by GT4T users, including trial version users.

I have already paid my first alarming bill to Google and I have to raise the price of GT4T licenses to keep the project going.

The price change will not affect current users owning an no-time-limit license.

Set press CTRL or SHIFT twice as the hotkeys!

With GT4T version 4.22, you can select some source text and press CTRL twice quickly as the hot key! I find it much more convenient than the usual CTRL+J. Do try it!

It’s quicker because after your left hand are pressing the CTRL and SHIFT key while your right hand are pressing the LEFT or RIGHT arrow to make a selection, you can immediately hit CTRL button twice again to get the translation and you don’t need to use your right hand to get the J button.

Yes, always use keyboards to make a selection (CTRL+SHIFT+LEFT or RIGHT arrow), not the mouse!

To use the new hot keys, go to Hot Keys -> Redefine and then check the boxes before “Press CTRL twice” and “Press SHIFT twice”

Use Microsoft Terminology (Microsoft Glossaries) with GT4T

Besides Google Dictionary, you can also use Microsoft Terminology (Microsoft Glossaries) with GT4T Dictionary feature. To use Microsoft Terminology:

1. Double click the icon in your system tray to bring out GT4T setup screen.

2. In the “Dictionary Options” section, choose “Microsoft Terminology” as the engine and click OK.

3. Select a term in any application, and press down “CTRL+D” and a pop-up appears where you are typing.

4. To insert a translation to where you are typing, simply press the Space Bar.

How to transfer GT4T license (deprecated)

NOTE: License transfer is replaced by a more convenient “Retrieve License” feature.

Take the following steps to transfer GT4T license from com A to com B:

1. On com A, click the GT4T icon in your system tray and then run license information.
2. Write down the hardware identifier on com A.
2. Click Transfer License and then click “I am transferring OUT…”.
3. Start com B, and run License Information of GT4T.
4. Click Transfer License and then click “I am transferring IN…”.
5. Input the hardware identifier of com A and click OK.

Warning: To simplify the process, license transfer is not password protected. By clicking “I am transferring OUT…”, you are allowing your license to be transferred to any computer by someone who knows your hardware identifier. To cancel the license transfer process, simply run License Information on com A and click “License transfer in process. Click here to cancel.”
