details of some limitations of Azure translation

Suri 0 Reputation points

I met some unclear issue when I was using the azure translations api with c#:

  1. How to calculate the char precisely? for example, a letter in English is always a byte, i.e., a char, but a character in Chinese will be 2 bytes in unicode, and more in utf8, how could I calculate the char for a Chinese sentence?
  2. It seems there is some limitation on request speed. and if you request too fast you will get a too much request error. So how much is the limitation, for example, the chars per second?
  3. I saw the price document said, there is 2m char per month for free instance, so is it also available for s1 instance?

Thank you so much.
