    I have a text that I want to make unique, so I decided to use some translator service with API. Imagine my surprise when I found that Google Translate API is actually paid. :D

    Anyway, I saw that Bing offers up to 2M words per month, but I need more than that. I thought about automating the browser to use Google Translate, but I am pretty sure after some time some Captcha is going to pop up.

    I know that the quality will be awful, but I am fine with that.

    you could always use proxies to get around the rate limits?

    Yes, but with bing I'd have to register and ask for API App ID which takes time and I prefer to do nothing while my robots are working.

    I could use proxies to avoid google's captchas, but that will slow me down, so I prefer to avoid that. :D
