Weird Pubmed translator quirk

I just had trouble recording the reference to this :

I can record it with the "Embedded Metadata" translator, but trying to record it with the "Pubmed" translator fails mysteriously (nothing specific in the error box).

IIRC, that's the first problem I ever had with the Pubmed translator.

Any hint ?
  • Try again now, works for me.
    The PubMed API that Zotero uses is less reliable than one would hope. When it's down, you get exactly what you're seeing.
  • Thanks. I could indeed register it.
    It might be interesting to intercept this case and mention this in the error message box ; something like "this can be caused by transient source conditions on some translators ; please try again in a few moments".
    What do you think ?
