Reminder: Move Translator API subscriptions from DataMarket to Azure before April 30, 2017

Please move your DataMarket Microsoft Translator API subscriptions and CTF translations to the Azure portal before April 30, 2017, to avoid service disruption.

Service access to Microsoft Translator in DataMarket ends on April 30, 2017. To avoid service disruption, Microsoft Translator, part of the Microsoft Cognitive Services collection of APIs, is now available in the Azure portal.

Below is a summary of the changes to your subscription:

Regardless of your monthly subscription’s billing period, your Translator API subscription will be disabled on April 30, 2017.
If your subscription’s monthly billing period starts on any day in April 2017, you will be charged for the full month in DataMarket.

We recommend that you take these steps to migrate:

1. Subscribe to Azure if you haven’t done so already.
2. With a minor code update, migrate existing applications that are using the Microsoft Translator API. For more information on how to do this, visit the Announcements: Action Required before April 30, 2017 – Microsoft Translator Moves to Azure webpage.


Your Azure account uses a different identity than your Azure DataMarket account. The corrections you have collected using the AddTranslation function will not be available until you migrate them, which needs to be completed before April 30, 2017. To access the simple tool to make your corrections available under your old and new identities, please visit the CTF: Migrate your collaborative translations before April 30, 2017, from Azure DataMarket to Azure webpage.
