Caution: The Google Translate API is not free of charge: Google charges after the number of characters translated. Please check the prices with Google.

If you already have a Google Translation v2.0 subscription but are wondering how to use it with memoQ, jump directly to Step 7.

To get started with Google Translate API in memoQ, follow the steps below.


Step 1: Visit Google, and sign in with your Google account (Gmail works fine).

Step 2: Open, and, under Use Google APIs, click the Enable and manage APIs link

Step 3: If you have not yet created a project, Google will automatically start creating one.

Step 4: After the project is created, Google will open the API library page. In the Overview category, find and click the Translate API link.

Step 5: The Translate API page appears. Click Enable.

Step 6: Google will prompt you to create credentials for the API. Click the Go to Credentials button that appears.

Step 7: The Add credentials to your project page appears. Under Where will you be calling this API from?, choose Other UI (e.g. Windows, CLI tool), and then click What credentials do I need?

Step 8: The Create API key page appears. Click Create API key. Google will create the API key, and display it. Select the key, and copy it to the clipboard.

Step 9: Open memoQ. On the Quick access toolbar, click the Resource Console icon. Select the Machine Translation category and there, pick the settings that your wish to edit. Under GoogleMT machine translation plugin, click Configure Plugin.

Step 10: Paste the API key you copied from the Google page in the Key for API v2.0 field, and leave the Referer box as it is. Click OK, and then check the Enable plugin check box in the list of machine translation plugins. Click OK again to close the Options dialog.

Step 11: If you have entered a valid billing information you should now begin receiving hits in your Translation results pane.

Note: Google will charge you after the number of characters you translate using the API.
