Why BingTranslate instead of GoogleTranslate?
Microsoft has a less known history of providing computer-based translations, but in effect both Google as Microsoft do a good job. However, the GoogleTranslate API is fee-based - it costs about 5 dollarcents per product. The BingTranslate API is free when using a maximum of 2 million characters per month. If you have a couple of 1000 products to translate with few languages, charges could be kept at zero.
To learn more about the BingTranslate pricing, go to the Microsoft Azure Marketplace and search for Microsoft Translator.
