                • 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

                  • 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.

                          • Phrasebook customization

                            The iOS phrasebook is easier to use because you can change part of the phrase which is convenient. The Android phrasebook is less user friendly. Please change the Android phrasebook so that it resembles the iOS one.
