  1. Overall needed improvements

    The translation quality is good which is the most important thing in any translator, but there is also quite important things need to be added.

    1- the voice translation is slowly and confusing, there should be a beep sound that tells you when to talk, and also I don't know why it does not get what am saying correctly even though I used many other voice translators apps and it woked fine.

    2- the keyboard translation doesn't provide QuickType, and also why does it start reading the text when I press the translate button! And why I can't stop it…

    • Improve word dictionary. Many words I enter in an input language is translated out with the same word. This gives a meaningless translation.

      • Add Latin. How can you have Klingon, a fictional language, but not Latin, centuries old and still used by scholars and the Vatican? Why?

          How do I add specific, hard to pronounce words to the word bank so that the translation will be accurate?

            • Fix problem with selecting "translate from" language

              I cannot change the "translate from" language, it is stuck on simplified Chinese regardless of which language I select, or if I try to swap the from/to languages.

                    • Fix Chinese language offline files removed from iOS app

                      Most recent update of Translator has somehow removed my saved offline Chinese langauge. I cannot re-download it. It was most useful for travelling with.

                        Unfortunately we had a bug in our Translator. The good news is that
                        the bug has been fixed and that we will update the Translator in the
                        online store soon.

                        As soon as I have confirmation that the updated app is available for download I will contact you again.

                        Best regards,

                      • Add pinyin to Chinese translation

                        You have to see pinyin with Chinese characters to be able to pronounce them. Take a look at Google translate which has to be used if you want to speak Chinese.

                            This is another poor Micrsoft product. After one or two sentences the app gets stuck and does not respond. I have to kill the app and start over.

                                • The translator API change the content of tags in txt/html mode.

                                  Using the method “TranslateArray” of Microsoft Translator Text API with option “ContentType” mode “text/html”, changes content of some tags extracting part of “important” text out of the tag.
                                  The actual version of the method sometimes changes text it’s included on a tag (for example “strong”), extracting part of the text out of the tag.

                                  There is any way to force the api to respect the tags?

                                  • it does not translate certain languages in to English

                                    Translator doesn't even translate certain languages, such as Hebrew or French, into English, even though those languages are included in the list of available languages. Google Translate works better!! I've had better success with Google!!!!!
