    This request is due to the large community of Nepalese in Hampshire and the translator being a key tool to support the Fire Service and other emergency services

  2. 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.

    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…

  11. I cannot set other language than English when I'm offline.

    I need to use Spanish when offline.
    It seems it is forced to english.
    How can I change it ?
    thanks

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…

    Thanks for your messages and comments on the Microsoft Translator forum.

    Please know that the app follows the language of your device. If your device is in the Arabic language the app will be as well.

    If this is not the case, please let us know and we’ll investigate further.

    Thanks for your messages and comments on the Microsoft Translator forum.

    Camera translations work as follows:
    - open Microsoft Translator
    - tap the camera icon
    - choose the from-language and the to-language
    - point the camera to the text you would like to translate and tap the camera icon

    To translate a photo please do the following:
    - open Microsoft Translator
    - tap the camera icon
    - choose the from-language and the to-language
    - tap the photo on the left of the camera icon.
    - select the photo you would like to translate.

    Camera translations work best when the camera is perfectly level and when there is enough contrast.

    Also please check if the from-language is available as a Camera Translations Language here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/translator/languages.aspx

  18. Eliminate the "OK" after "Clear History".

    After history is cleared, there's no choice but to hit "OK" if you want to proceed, so what's the point?

    Thank you for posting, commenting and voting on this forum post.

    This issue has been resolved. When you now delete a translation it is no longer necessary to tap “ok”.

  19. 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.

  20. 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
    Microsoft Translator Team
