To use V3 Advanced Translation in Trados Studio, a user must have direct access to a valid JSON file.
JSON files are dependent on:
- A specific Google Cloud Project
- A Service Account
Service Accounts could be linked to a bucket. Buckets that manage your AutoML and glossaries. You can access your bucket by accessing your Cloud Storage
If you want to access your custom AutoML’s and glossaries in Trados Studio, you need to authenticate using JSON files
Generating JSON files
To download a JSON file, follow these steps:
- Locate API and Services
- Ensure you have the correct project – Example Google Translate V3
- See list of Service Accounts
- Click on your chosen service account email
