  3. Translate screenshots (.png files).

    Add support for screenshots on Android devices (.png image files)

    The workaround is to convert the .png file to a .jpg file and then translate it.

  7. Romanization of translated text.

    It would be better if the tranlated text or voice are romanized (transliteration). In this way we can also learn their language by reading it. Thank you

  11. Please give the option for the user to copy and share the log file and history for both ASR ( Automatic Speech Recognition) and translation.

    Please give the option for the user to copy and share the log file and history for both ASR ( Automatic Speech Recognition) and translation. This is very helpful for users who want to review and verify the speech recognition and compare it to the translation.

  13. Extra options.

    What about extra translations and voice pronunciation for the word that you are translated from? Those are basic features from Google Translate.

  15. Option for formal vs informal

    It would be great if there was an option to change whether we want translations to be formal or informal.
    For example in French, Vous/Tu, Nous/On etc.

    Sometimes translations use vous, and other times tu.
    It would be great to be able to choose.

  17. Translation with example ssntences

    Hello
    I am using the dictionary and i thank you for this product . I just have one suggestion : couldn't there be an option to give the translation of a word within a phrase/sentence, and even several examples of sentence not necessarily one.
    Actually like other dictionaries have, "reverso context" for example.
    Sincerely

  18. If Hindi,Bangla and Tamil are in translator, Marathi must be added,it's 4th most spoken language in India after these three,Please add.

    People speaking Marathi covers around 7-8% of Population of India.Maharashtra, which is one of the most populated states of India, also being most developed, attracts people from all over India for trade, business, education, work and tourism. It also attracts considerable number of foreigner s too.Marathi, being a local language of Maharashtra is often used by the people for all sorts of work, officially and as a day to day work, normal conversations' language.
    So Marathi must be a part of Google Translator.So that all these people are benefitted from the same.
