Windows 11 Pro for Workstations
I did a clean install of Windows 11 on my workstation and my laptop when it was released. Win 11 Pro for Workstations on the WS and Win 11 Home on the laptop.

I installed the Microsoft Translator app on the WS directly and wanted to install it on the laptop yesterday but it is nowhere to be found in the MS Store. I first thought that this may be a Pro v.s Home issue but when i search in the MS Store on my WS today i cannot find MS Translator and a Google search gave me this: Buy Translator - Microsoft Store

Win 11 Version 22000.434 on both computers.

Does anyone know why MS Translator is discontinued for the public, or made aviable only if you have a 25-digit code? :)

Yes, MS Account on both computers.

Plenty of good free A.I translators available these days -- even GOOGLE Translate has greatly improved over the years into something quite passable, OK you won't get a 1st class Honours degree in linguistics using that app but it's certainly 90% OK for typical documents which you can easily fix manually. If you need specialized services e,g for medicine, complex engineering specs etc then you are better off in any case using professional (paid for) specialist services.

It is not free for android either as far as I know. There are plenty of other free apps to choose from

It's free: Microsoft Translator - Apps on Google Play.

Microsoft Translator is a free, personal translation app for more than 70 languages, to translate text, voice, conversations, camera photos and screenshots. You can also download languages for offline translation for free to use when you travel.

I did, but how long is soon with MS? I was suggesting other apps while the OP was waiting for it. Also It is not that straightforward using android apps in 11, not just download and use.
