  2. 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.

    What would you like to see on the Widget? Shortcut to specific language pairs and ways of entering information ?

  6. 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.

  7. Extra options.

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

  9. 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.

  13. Downloadable package outside the program

    Can you add the ability to DL package from somewhere else, then transfer/install it offline ?

    Right now, i'm having hard time to have a stable Wifi connection with my phone, but i'd be able to download that package in my computer...

    I think that would help in some cases, to be able to install packages offline..

  14. 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.

  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.
