Hi all,

(Hope I didn't accidentally just send this -- was writing and it disappeared.)

I often use the translation widget on my Dashboard but a week or so ago it quit working. Now when I try to translate anything, I get this:

Suspected Terms of Service Abuse. Please see API Access Notice - Google Code

I went to that URL but wasn't able to figure out how to fix the problem. Does anyone have any experience to share on this little mystery?

Thanks in advance,
G. Alson
