          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 on the Microsoft Translator forum. 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. 

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

            You can learn more about how automatic translation works at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/translator/mt.aspx

                - Tap Enter
                - Tap the Speaker icon and wait for the translation to be spoken
                - You’ll notice a play icon (a small triangle) appear in the speaker icon.

                  • 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 ?

                      Hi,

                      Thanks for posting on the Translator forum. Please find the explanation on how to download languages for offline use here: https://microsofttranslator.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/1101838-how-to-download-languages-for-offline-use

                      Note that you’ll need to download both the from-language and the to-language if you’d like to translate between them.

                      Also, offline works for text and camera translations.

                              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

                              Best regards,

                                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.

                              • 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!!!

                                      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.

                                    • "Try and compare" has stopped translating.

                                      I have been using https://translator.microsoft.com/neural for a few months on an almost daily basis, but today it has stopped translating. I input a text, click "Translate & Compare!", the page seems to be loading, but then nothing happens, there is no translation.

                                        Thanks for your post and votes on the Microsoft Translator forum.

                                        Translate.ai is now a page to showcase our Chinese to
                                        English Human Parity work. Read the story here: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/translation/2018/03/14/human-parity-for-chinese-to-english-translations/ Our team has taken what we’ve learned from this specific project and placed it
                                        in our Translate.ai environment for people to test.

                                        The best way to now use Translator while online
                                        is to go to https://www.bing.com/translator/ where the translations are neural when available and statistical
                                        when not. You can find the list of available languages here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/translator/languages.aspx

                                      • 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”.
