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, after its use, to my preset favorite languages? Also, is it possible to set four buttons instead of three?
I'll appreciate your help!
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.

I would say show the most used ones first
I speak 5 languages and it is annoying when I have to change to another language because I have to scroll through all of them when i could easily have these 5 as "favorites languages". Like the recent ones but recents are only 3, I need more please. Excuse me for my England
hi, can you add the Yoruba language
Just want an option to only show chinese english and spanish
typed language to language translation
when i want to translate and i want to choose deferent language if you put my favorite language to appears at the top instead of recently used this will be way better
I need to use this app for translating between 3 languages, it is anoying to find them in a very long list .
Maybe you could represent top downloaded languages in the list. Then must you not always scroll when translated 2 languages at the same time. For example, German in English and Spanish.
translation into 2 languages helps understand the meaning of the word and helps people learning new language, its very important feature .
adding favorite language would reduce the time u need to find the language u r tranalating into .
At the top of the alphabetical list of languages, add the most recently used languages for quicker switching
