Hi, does anyone know what the limits are on the size of a file that Google Translate can handle and also whether they get annoyed with repeated calls to the API?
Does anyone have a good strategy for translating large files (10 mb)?

Thanks.

Hi. Thanks! Can you tell me how I can verify that this is ok? Is it written somewhere? And do you know what kind of limitations google puts on access?

Also, I was told that there are just two protocols: REST and Javascript and that in both of these all the information has to be appended to the URL. This seems absolutely impossible for 50 mb.

Thanks again.

Thanks again.
Translations and glossaries each have a maximum size of 1MB.
Documents can be uploaded in most common file formats.
Translation memories have a maximum size of 50MB per upload.

What is the difference between Translations and Glossaries and Translation memories?
I have csv files that have several fields which I would like to translate. Each file is anywhere from 3 to 10 mb. Would I have to break them up and send the parts separately as 1 mb files do you think?

Look it out for glossarie: http://translate.google.com/support/toolkit/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=147859

I think u need to break files. Best you may use win rar for this. It automatically split file and merge it again

again, thanks. Can I ask, or do you know, if it is really true that all the text to be translated is appended to the URL? That seems impossible.
