    Microsoft is dropping support for bing translator. Microsoft translator in Windows Azure MarketPlace is the new kid in the block. It's still free for 2.000.000 characteres/month. Also i think there is a new limit for a valid token: 10 minutes. Is there a plan to support this service in quick chat?

    Hello,
    I've hesitated about using any outside service, especially one from Microsoft because, well because of this. MS will probably remove 2.000.000 ch/month limit soon and eliminate free service. The whole thing has been free to attract developers so they could pick their pockets once they cut free service. Also renewing tokens would considerably complicate Quick Chat code. Thanks for informing me about this, I'll think about this and make my decision in time to release new version reflecting this change. Deadline is 1.5.2012. if I'm not mistaken?

    I'm talking funny, not sure about exact deadline but it looks like it has already passed. Service still works on my site but I need to tackle this as soon as possible.

    MS site says "Developers with existing AppIDs can continue using Bing Search API 2.0 until August 1, 2012.". Business with Microsoft is like business with the devil so I will probably have to remove translation feature from upcoming versions.
