  1. Make phrasebooks shareable

    If you go to a lot of work making a phrasebook for a certain topic, you should be able to share it or get one from someone else. I like how there is an area in the app where there are phrases by topic, but why can't I make my own phrases by topic or get phrases from someone else by topic.

    Think about language classes... I can share out to students or students can share out to each other! The adoption rate of the app could potentially go up if suddenly vocab lists by topic were a shareable thing!

  8. Multi Window

    Can the Microsoft Translator app include the feature multi window for Android? It would be nice to be able to translate parallel to using another app.

  9. 单词翻译

    建议在输入一个英语单词时,能现实其所有意思:名字,动词,并且显示英语单词的音标。有道词典这方面就做的不错,常用词组,分词,过去式都有。

  16. 增加一个悬浮按钮,在其它应用上可控制的显示翻译!!!

    很多国外软件都需要翻译,但不能一张张去截图,所以建议增加在其它应用上可以控制的显示翻译内容

  17. Automatically translate

    Add automatic page translation. Chrome for Android automatically translates Japanese and other language pages I visit. Great feature I hope Edge for mobile adopts.

    Thank you for your message on the Translator forum. We appreciate your feedback.

    The translation system is constantly learning, making corrections, and improving its output.
    Automatic translations use statistical machine learning to translate from one language to another, and it works best when translating full sentences. In some instances, it can create 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

    Thanks again for your feedback to improve our translation service.
