We are experiencing issues with the Microsoft Tech Community Language Translation system which means that Translations will currently be unavailable for all users.


**Updated 04/23/2021 @ 5PM PDT**

We have deployed the fix and will continue to monitor the service over the weekend. Language translation maybe a little slower than normal while it catches up on all posts missed over the last week.

Hello Everyone. I use automatic translation in MTC all the time and I had often confusing messages that translation is not possible, but practically the operation was correct, I think the cache in Edge in this case causes the wrong flow and a message that does not confirm in fact!

Thanks for commenting, once the system is back up could you send us a screenshot of the error? you can email us here.

Hello. Yes I sent as you asked, but the translation with me is fine!

The translation service is unavailable for me today, should it be available?

Unfortunately not yet, the proposed fix threw up some issues we are working to fix before we roll it out, apologies for the delay. I am hoping we will have something before the end of the week

See my update.. let me know if you see any issues, however I wouldn't report delays in translations of up to 30 minutes at the moment, it has a backlog of posts to workthrough.

Previously it was definitely better do not know why it changed is difficult to translate without seeing all the written content I'll add screenshots later . But I think it's Bing translator works badly and there are problems in MTC. now I write and I have to guess what I wrote earlier!

Is it possible to deactivate the Languange Translation Service? 

It is a little confusing when I'm reading posts in Spanish (my mother tongue) and I feel I could understand it better without translating it so I change the language to Spanish but after seeing or replying to the post I return to the English language ^^' haha


Thank you in advance
