Google API charging every time Lingo is Accessed

Postby Stark_22 on Thu Sep 21, 2017 3:13 am

I don't know if anyone else has experienced this, but after using the Google API to Machine Translate a project ONCE, I'm now being charged EVERY TIME I open Lingo, even though I haven't done any more translation using the Machine Translation function.

We've spoken to Google and they don't seem to know what is going on.

Is there a way to use the API once, then turn it off?

In the Machine Translation settings, I have ticked the "Cache MT results as XLIFF alternates" checkbox in the hope that it will cache the initial Machine Translation, so Lingo shouldn't HAVE to access the API least, that's my logic.

If anyone can correct me/advise, please do. It's getting a bit daft (and expensive).

Thank you! :)
