  1. 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,

        • 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, 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.

                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/

                          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.

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

                          • Set default language translations, i.e. Chinese and English, and have button to switch the first language

                            Be able to set the two base languages, i.e. Chinese and English, and have on button option to switch the initial language. This is common in translators
