PointFire Power Translator – v18.104.22.168 beta
Posted by Martin Laplante on 20 December 2019 04:36 PM
This is an unsupported beta release. Thank you for testing it. Please provide feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org
This version of PointFire Power Translator includes a command-line tool a web interface, and an app interface. After it is installed on a shared server using the "single sign on" procedure, the PointFire Translator app, also v22.214.171.124 beta, supports connecting to this server and translating using the user's own credential. It can also be backward-compatible with installation of the server on the local workstation like previous versions of Power Translator.
The installer will give you the option to start PointFire Power Translator either in console mode, or to install it as a Windows service which can be always on. It will then open the browser interface on the local machine so that you can enter license keys and API keys, and optionally set credentials that it will store. In most cases, these credentials only need to be entered once, even if you are prompted for them later on.
If you install it as a Windows service, then we recommend that you open services.msc, find the PointFire Power Translator service, right-click to select Properties, then under the Log On tab, make sure that Allow service to interact with desktop is checked. Also, in Microsoft Word, click File > Options > Advanced under the "General" heading, and please make sure that "Confirm file format conversion on open" option is disabled.
You need to get a Translator Text API key from Azure
The installation will prompt you for the following information:
If you do not choose Single Sign on, you can use stored credentials, in which case it may also require:
You may skip these prompts, but you will have to issue the SetCredentials command later. If you are using Multi-Factor Authentication, then the Username and Password may not be required, however a dialog box will open to let you log in, and a new login may be required in later sessions.
PointFire Power Translator can be used from the command line using the TXFIRE exe, or from PowerShell, using scripts like the sample scripts that are provided. However it is easier to use it from PointFire Translator, and app that runs on SharePoint. More details are here http://pointfire.com/products/add-ins/TranslatorManual.aspx
To install PointFire Translator, drag and drop the file PFT-Addin.app to your app catalog and add it to your site, the carry out the configuration steps described in the Power Translator Installation Manual.
