This error pops up for ~20 seconds when I first open the application I have created through the Powerapps app on my mobile.
"MicrosoftTranslator.Translate failed: The Method 'Translate' has an invalid value for parameter 'languageTo'"
The error only shows right when the app is opened. I do not have any issues with anything being translated, and there are no issues when in Dev mode. There is no error in the App Checker.
I have a combobox where the default value is English but the user can choose any of the languages provides though the MicrosoftTranslate connector. My formula on the items being translated is:
If( lang.Code = "en", [Translate Text Goes Here], MicrosoftTranslator.Translate( [Translate Text Goes Here], lang.Code ) )
I am not sure why this error is showing when nothing seems to be wrong.
It seems to be related to this issue which never received a solution.
Solved! Go to Solution.
What do you have on the "OnStart" property for your app? Is there any situation, where a call is made to the Translator when the app is opened?
Hope this Helps!

I do not have anything in the OnStart, but I do have an OnVisible on the home page, that sets "English" as the default via a global variable.
I tried moving that to the OnStart section and it has not changed anything.
OnStart = Set(GV_Language, "English")
I guess I am not sure what kind of call needs to be made to the translator to initialize it?
Hi @tperry ,
Could you show me your formula about MicrosoftTranslator.Translate?
I've made a similar test , use "English" in this function will not work.
Please try this:
MicrosoftTranslator.Translate(text that you want to translate,"en")
Here's a doc about this connector for your reference:
It's a conditional value based on the language the user is selecting in the dropdown.
If(dd_languages.Selected.Code="en","Text I want to translate",MicrosoftTranslator.Translate("Text I want to translate",dd_languages.Selected.Code))
