  1. Customize the phrasebook

    We need the option to create a personalized phrasebook. It would be very convenient to add this as an option when clicking the "share" icon. (Unfortunately, at this time, the only option is to "pin" questions that are routinely asked.)

    It would be helpful to schools, for example, when asking parents/guardians a series of specific questions to enroll a new student.

  2. Add Auto Rotate

    The application does not auto rotate to landscape mode. This is an issue on any device that uses a keyboard like an iPad. It’s awfully hard to read and write sideways.

  3. Provide phonic translations

    Please provide translations with phonics so users can try to speak the translation. For example many English speakers don’t know how to read/say Chinese characters.

  5. Http links

    Would be good if this could translate screenshots of unworkable & uncopyable links (such as Instagram!) into working links.

  6. The translator translates for a few seconds, then one has to tap the mic again. Why can't it simply continue?

    The translator translates for a few seconds, then one has to tap the mic again. Very annoying. Why can't it simply continue? Or did I overlook some setting?

  7. Presenter Mode, but Mic randomly turns off

    Running Translator in Chrome (91.0.4472.114) on macOS 10.14.6. Presenter Mode works great for a time, and then mutes Host mic at random. Only one other participant in the Conversation, and they are muted. Is there a setting to leave the mic open for 60+ min?

  8. Offline real-time continuous translation.

    Can offline real-time continuous translation of a long speech in a different language happen anytime soon in the Microsoft Translator for iOS, at the press of a single button?

  9. Why can’t the translator be shown in landscape mode instead of only portrait mode.

    Why can’t the translator be shown in landscape mode instead of only portrait mode? This would be great for Ipad users that use a keyboard with a case because it is difficult to hold the pad in the portrait mode.

  18. Save Transcript from conversation iPad app

    Is there a way to save the transcript of a Microsoft Translator Conversation on the iOS app? I know when a conversation ends on the web version, it gives you the ability to save the transcript once a conversation ends, but I am not finding any such option on the iOS app

  19. Make end of speech detection time adjustable

    While learning a new language I am speaking slowly and with pauses between words. The app takes my pauses as being the end of my speaking and thus cuts me off in mid sentence. Very very frustrating. Please make this time interval adjustable.
