The method 'Translate' has an invalid value for parameter 'LanguageTo'

MicrosoftTranslator.Translate failed


Hi guys,  I've been trying to figure out how to fix this error. When I test it on my desktop this does not show up, only when I publish it to mobile. I have several languages on different screens and each time I select a new screen this message shows up. 


Any ideas on what needs to be done to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @Courtney 



Check to see if you have passed value to languageto param

The translate frunction requires the languageto value to translate


example : MicrosoftTranslator.Translate("hello","fr")

Thanks for your response. I'm still new to the platform so i'm not quite sure how/where to implement this change. Is there any chance you could simplifiy it for me?

It only seems to happen once when the screen is first made visible and once the error box is closed down, it works as normal until the app is closed. Its just really annoying when it pops us each time and gives the impression that the app in broken when accessed form a mobie device.
