Something to keep in mind when using ChatGPT via API key

While utilizing ChatGPT via API, it is important to consider the following points:

1. Stability and processing time: Please be aware that ChatGPT may not provide the same level of stability as traditional machine translation services. It may take longer for ChatGPT to process the source texts compared to specialized translation systems.

2. Connection timeouts: Occasionally, you may encounter missing target texts after the translation process due to the limited capacity of ChatGPT servers and face a timeout issue. If you experience this issue, simply place your cursor in the target text area to query the translation again. This will prompt ChatGPT to generate a response and fill in the missing target text.

3. Proper Segments: It is important to ensure that your source file's segments are properly managed. In some cases, if the punctuations in the source file are not handled carefully, certain segments may become excessively long and increase the likelihood of encountering timeouts. Therefore, always maintain well-structured segments for optimal results.

4. Feature for Paid Users: Kindly note that accessing ChatGPT on Termsoup is a feature exclusively available for Termsoup paid users. To utilize ChatGPT via an API key, you will need to have an active paid plan.

5. Security: It is worth mentioning that currently ChatGPT may not possess the same level of security and safety measures as large-scale, paid machine translation services. However, as ChatGPT improves its security and its user base continues to grow, it is becoming increasingly reliable. Please exercise discretion while using ChatGPT and ensure that sensitive information is handled appropriately.

Please bear in mind that the availability and performance of ChatGPT may vary, and we encourage you to prioritize security throughout your usage.
