So I just installed SharePoint 2013 SP1 and got this error, here is how to solve this.
- Verify that the user account that is performing this procedure is a member of the Farm Administrators group.
- On the Central Administration website, click Monitoring.
- On the Job Definitions page, in the list of timer jobs, click Machine Translation Service Timer Job.
- On the Edit Timer Job page, in the Recurring Schedule section, specify when you want the timer job to run, and then click Enable.
