My translation widget is not working

I noticed that a few days ago when I typed something into my translation widget I get a message that "data unavailable'. I check today on my other computer and get the same message. I tried one of the plist deletion methods and it did create a new one but still the same. I checked other widgets and it seems like any widget that needs to pull information from the internet (a server maybe) stopped working. Is this an Apple thing where they try to make you fix things with an upgrade? Has anybody got this thing to work?

[doublepost=1500039860][/doublepost]I'm chiming in with the same problem, July 2017. I've deleted the translation widget and reinstalled. No luck.

I have exactly the same problem on Sierra 10.12.5. I recently updated from Mavericks to Sierra, machine: Mac mini (2012-2013).

Sorry for not getting back to this thread but what happened was I got 2 answers from Systran. The first was saying that Apple may have let their subscription lapse which I figured, well that's that. Then out of the blue I get a messenger message from someone else at Systran saying that it should be back up and running. Which it is. So, for those who deleted it, you can install it again.
