Known issues in ChatGPT

ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence (AI) language-based tool that can understand the structure of language commands and respond through text. According to its official website, ChatGPT is capable of translating languages, revising texts, processing data, and creating articles. If used correctly, ChatGPT can achieve high accuracy in translation because it can assume gender, understand the context of the text being translated, or incorporate specific requests into the translation output.

However, there are some limitations to ChatGPT, as also explained on its official website. At the time of writing this article, the ChatGPT model being used is ChatGPT 3.5-turbo. If you are a free user, you will have a low priority in response time, and too many requests can result in a penalty of one hour. ChatGPT has limitations in processing a large number of words, which is why there may be no response when batch translating.

Since ChatGPT is not a machine translator, its translation response is much slower compared to other machine translators, even for simple words. The results of ChatGPT’s translations can be categorized as inconsistent, even for the same input.

It is important to keep in mind that ChatGPT is a tool that can assist in language translation and other language-based tasks, but it is not a substitute for human translation and interpretation. Additionally, users should be aware of the limitations and guidelines for using ChatGPT to optimize its performance.

Although ChatGPT can provide accurate translations, it is not perfect and has limitations. One of the limitations is its inability to understand the nuances of language, especially in situations where cultural context is necessary. Additionally, ChatGPT’s translations are heavily influenced by the training data it was exposed to, which can result in biases and inaccuracies. Therefore, it is important to use ChatGPT translations with caution and to double-check them with a human translator when accuracy is critical.


If you are facing trouble with your ChatGPT add-on, then it might have run out of free tokens.

the main reason to minimize the use of ChatGPT Translator is that ChatGPT is not free. when you create an account you get token points equivalent to 18$. ChatGPT API contains its pricing, which costs about $0.002 per 1000 tokens, about 750 words. However, once your free credit expires, you must purchase tokens for further use.


The OpenAI API is powered by a diverse set of models with different capabilities and price points. You can also make limited customizations base models for your specific use case with fine-tuning.

Changing the model will change the ChatGPT response style.

We recommend using gpt-3.5-turbo over the other GPT-3.5 models because of its lower cost.

Change ChatGPT API model

In nutshell

if you experience blank cells using ChatGPT,

if you experience schrödinger cell which you do not know, your chatGPT is busy or timeout,

you have been warned.

Also there is a possibility that you run out of your free tokens.
