  1. Transliteration for Cantonese to Western (Roman) lettering, (Jyutping?)

    Can we soon get Transliteration for Cantonese to Western (Roman) lettering, (Jyutping or Cantonese Pinyin.) I understand Mandarin, but the majority of my friends speak Cantonese, and I would like to know how to say something to them.

  4. 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.

  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.

  16. 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!

  17. Ahmad

    I suggest in the offline translation to have pronunciation and Synonyms for each word.
