    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,

    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:

    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 autocorrected in Spanish.

    Android:
    You can resolve this issue by…

  5. 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.

    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. 

    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.

  18. 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!!!
