  1. Fix Apple Watch App

    Fix the Apple Watch app. It STILL crashes with any attempted translation, recognizing English, then crashing returning to home screen before any translation.

    This error has been fixed. We apologize for the mistranslation. Errors like this can happen with automatic translation due to incorrect training data.

  3. Audio speed!!

    Thanks for posting, commenting and voting on the Microsoft Translator Forum. Your request to slow down the speed at which a translation is spoken is now available on both Microsoft Translator for Android (app version 3.1.252 and higher) and Microsoft Translator for iOS (app version 3.0.8 and higher).

    You can now translate a sentence from any of our supported languages (Find a list here: http://www.aka.ms/translatorlanguages) to one of the following languages and slow down the audio speed:

    o Arabic
    o Catalan
    o Chinese Mandarin
    o Danish
    o Dutch
    o English
    o Finnish
    o French
    o German
    o Italian
    o Japanese
    o Korean
    o Norwegian
    o Polish
    o Portuguese
    o Russian
    o Spanish
    o Swedish

    It works as follows:
    - Type (or speak) the phrase you want to translate
    - Tap the Speaker icon and wait for the translation to be spoken
    - You’ll notice a play icon (a small…

    Hello,

    Thank you for your interest in Microsoft Translator.

    Nepali is now a text translation language in the Microsoft Translator service!

    Please see the announcement in the Microsoft Translator blog article. microsoft.com/translator/blog/2021/02/22/mi..

  5. Please add option for favorite languages

    I normally work with English, German, Polish, French and Spanish (the languages I speak which I call "my languages") and very seldom I need finding a translation from other language. One day I needed to translate something to Portuguese and another day, something from Turkish, and now I cannot find the way to get rid of them from the language buttons, where I'd like to always see "my languages". How can I do to set the buttons to show only my favorite languages? (and whenever required, and only then, show another language that I might need occasionally to later return,…

    Hi,

    Thanks for your vote on the “Favorite languages” forum post.

    The favorite languages feature in the Microsoft Translator app works as follows: When you open the text translation part of your app you will see that the last languages you translated from and to is on your screen. Also, when you tap on e.g. the from-language you will see the Recent languages you used at the top of the list.

    This works the same for Speech and Camera translations.

    Please let us know if this works for the way you use Translator.

    Sincerely,
    Gwenda

  6. The discoverability of your web service is bad.

    The main reason I am using google translate is because it is easier to find that service on the web.

    I just type translate and it comes as a suggestion as opposed to translator which never comes as a suggestion.

    translate.google.com

    as opposed to
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/translator/default.aspx

    or http://www.bing.com/translator

    Thanks for pointing this out to us.

    When you search Translate on Google they put their own translator on top.

    When you search Translate on Bing you will find both services.

    Hi,

    Several of our users have asked us to auto-correct in the language that they are using as a source language even though their phone “speaks” a different language.

    There is a way to solve this issue and I’ve added the how-to for iPhone/iPad and Android below:

    iPhone:
    - Go to the Settings app on your iPhone
    - Tap General
    - Tap Dictionary
    - Tap the language you would like to have the dictionary of e.g. Spanish and Spanish-English

    Then go back the General Settings
    - Tap Keyboard
    - Tap keyboards
    - Tap add New Keyboard
    - Tap the language of your choice e.g. Spanish

    Now, go to Microsoft Translator app.
    - Tap the keyboard icon
    - You will see a small globe on the left of your space bar
    - tap and hold the globe and you will see list of languages appear. If you choose Spanish you’ll get…

    Thanks for your feedback. It is much appreciated!

    Please know that automatic Translations are usually of a lower quality than professionally translated texts, however the software learns from corrections and constantly improves its output. It can make errors, especially when the phrase lacks context.

    You can learn more about the changes we made in translating Arabic as a neural translation language here https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/translator/mt.aspx#nnt

    Thanks for your posts, messages and votes on the Microsoft Translator forum.

    You can use the Microsoft Translator app while offline in 40+ languages. Please find the list of available languages here: aka.ms/translatorlanguages

    To be able to use the app while offline you need to prepare by downloading a language pack. e.g. if you want to translate from Japanese to French you will need to download both French and Japanese language packs while on a Wi-Fi connection. You can find the how-to here: https://microsofttranslator.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/1101838-how-to-download-languages-for-offline-use

  20. Auto-detect persistence

    It would be nice if the system just stayed in auto-detect instead of defaulting to the new language after auto-detecting for those of us that translate a lot of different languages.
