How to get started and receive credentials

All you need to get started with MotaWord Translations connector is a MotaWord account and an API application. Follow the steps below and come chat with us anytime on our website.

  1. Register as a developer in our Developer Portal.
  2. Create a new application in your developer dashboard.
  3. Choose "Microsoft Power Automate (Flow)" as your application type.
  4. Click "View Keys" in application sidebar menu.

You can also reset this token whenever you want and use the new token in your connector configuration. This is an extended access token, exclusive to our Microsoft integrations.

Known limitations

WhenTranslationProjectCompleted trigger is having a parameter conflict between our Swagger definition and Microsoft Power Automate configuration UI. We are actively resolving this.

For now, you can always build your own webhook flow with our MotaWord API:

  1. Simply create a new trigger for "When an HTTP request is received"
  2. This trigger component will give you a generated URL.
  3. When you are initializing a project with MotaWord connector, put this URL in callback_url parameter of our "Initialize Translation Project" action.

We also expect to increase number of actions and triggers in our connector. We are analyzing the connector usage to bring you with the most useful actions and triggers. Please do let us know!
