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
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.

Pinyin is provided by the app ONLY when online. Downloading Chinese for *offline* use only shows characters.
For anyone traveling in China without an internet connection, pinyin translation is absolutely essential for offline mode. Please include pinyin for Chinese in offline mode!
I am sorry, but pinyin is not working in mainland China. It only works in Taiwan. Please can you make sure that pinyin is enabled when accessing from mainland China. Best of all would be offline support.

Hey is not working is keeping asking me to download language for offline so I can't not translate during my trip but I have enough internet
Pinyin doesn't seem to be available on the website
I don't see simplified Chinese anymore as an offline language. What happened ?
