  1. Most of the Arabic translation is a disaster!

    I can tell this Arabic translation memory was done by an Egyptian-Arabic speaking person with no knowledge of grammar and doing all kind of mistakes!!!

      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.

        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. As automatic translations use statistical machine learning to translate from one language to another it works best when translating full sentences. It can make errors, especially when the phrase lacks context.

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

          • to have the pinyin translation along the Chinese characters

            It would be very useful to have the pinyin translation along with the Chinese characters. So, it would be easy to read it back

              Hi,
              Please know that Pinyin is still there. Once you have translated the text to Chinese you can swipe from right to left on your screen and see the text in Pinyin.
              Thanks,

                      Hi, This is indeed a very annoying issue which you can resolve as follows: When you look at the keyboard there is a little gear lever. Once you choose the gear lever you can choose the “Add input languages” which gives you the option to choose the keyboard you would like.

                    • Jewish quarter in Arabic becomes Ghetto

                      Translating حارة اليهود (Jewish Quarter) from Arabic to English yields the term Ghetto.

                        Please know that this issue has been resolved. حارة اليهود now translates as Jewish lane.

                      • 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

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

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

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

                                      You can see your recent translation history on both your phone and watch. You can also “pin” translations to keep them around until you unpin them.

                                          Hi,

                                          We have added Bangla as one of our supported languages!

                                          With this new text translation language available, locals and travelers can communicate from and to Bangla throughout Bangladesh, the Indian subcontinent and around the globe by using the Microsoft Translator apps on their preferred device (Windows, Android, Kindle, or iOS).

                                          Please find more info on our blog: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/translation/2017/03/28/microsoft-announces-bangla-the-latest-language-supported-by-microsoft-translator/

                                          Best regards,
                                          Gwenda
                                          Microsoft Translator Team
