    • Add a tap to translate option

      I mean, an option which translates content from clipboard with a touch, it will be very handy.

      • Merge with Skype instant vocal translation, so two persons can talk face to face, with instant translation in their Bluetooth earphones.

        Two persons would meet, start their translator apps, join phones for nfc connection/interlinking, and they could start conversing in their own languages. Each would have a Bluetooth wireless headphone in their ear, so when one would talk into its own earphone, the other would receive a simultaneous translation in his own earphone. A viable universal translator already today. That would be nice, Mabel.

        • Android Wear - Smartwatch

          most devices are made Specifically to Support single language like some Chinese fones etc. I Recently bought Motorola Moto 360 Smart Watch and it came out to be Chinese only version and now i can't use my smart watch. apps like this should Support Android Wear platform and Should have Option to translate on screen text or something like language changer. this is what world needs and expects from you right now.

              seria bueno incorporar la traducción fotográfica o de scaner, a través de la cámara fotográfica del telefono. Fabio.

                              Merci de l’idée, C’est la première fois que quelqu’un propose ce type de besoin donc nous devrons regarder à la fois la complexité d’implémentation et l’utilité pour le plus grand nombre.

                              Pour nous aider, pouvez-vous nous en dire plus au sujet du scenario? Pourquoi un tel besoin?

                            • add Cortana integration

                              continuous listening doesnot work properly. i have to continuously press the button. add a feature like "hi cortana" or voice detectimprove continuos listening

                                        On an Android phone, I want to be able to translate a whole web page using Microsoft Translator. I know Chrome has this function already, but here in China Google Translate is blocked so the feature doesn't work.
