Hello,

with the inminent launch of the new google translate API (V2) and the problems related to use of the old one in Ubiquity ("Suspected Terms of Service Abuse. Please
see http://code.google.com/apis/errors"), is anyone thinking about an upgrade?

I hope it will be easy, fast and painless. My encouragement for the brave person who's going to make it \o/ 

Best,

g0to

Unlike the old google translate, the new google translate API (V2)
isn't free.

I guess we'll have to switch to Bing Translator...

oops I didn't see that. This Bing/Ubiquity is still working tho:

The only drawback is that it doesn't replace the text when hitting
return.

Awesome, kman!

I hacked it a bit to change default "translate to" language from French to Spanish and it works like a charm. I hope it lasts long.

Thank you ;)
