Gimmick free Freebie from Microsoft Translator Preview service

with one comment

 

I was busy writing the TranslateMaid Addin for Visual Studio and learned so many things in so many ways. One of the many quirks I noticed with the Microsoft Translator Preview service was, when you send an XML element or simply put some text or character enclosed with < and > and some text or character following it, you get a freebie. And what’s that?

For instance, when you send <summary>a as the sourceText parameter to be translated, then the result you yield is <summary>a</summary>. And that’s the freebie.

If this was an expected behaviour, then there is a mistake. If this was a mistake, then there is a mistake in that mistake! I will explain why.

You try with <summary>a, <seealso>a, <returns>a, <Jey>a, <maran>a, <a>a, <sometext>a and for almost everything it returns a free end tag. But when you pass <param>a or <input>a, you don’t get a freebie. They may be many more such examples.

In the below samples, %3C and %3E denote < and > in when URL encoded.
