I am trying to post a word to get its translated version but i keep getting a 400 error and when i try same code here on test endpoint button, it works perfectly, what might be the reason for the 400 error

I was able to fix the issue using request

var request = require(‘request’);

use this to make request to the API , axios has some issues with making request to this API

Not working. Receiving this in postman, where obviously I xxxx out my key. In fact, none of the endpoints are working as of 11:42 EST.

GET https://google-translate1.p.rapidapi.com/language/translate/v2/languages?target=en
Error: incorrect header check

Hey kizito917, it looks like there’s an issue with how the axios code snippet is being generated. If you alter that snippet to send the data as URL encoded parameters as expected, it will work through axios! https://share.getcloudapp.com/WnuGXryo I’ll reach out to RapidAPI to investigate why this is happening.
