  1. Chinese is no longer supported offline even after I have downloaded it before and used it offline with no problems

    I was using Chinese translations offline and it suddenly stopped working. It says Chinese is not an offline language but I was using it before now

    • Open App shows "updating...." everytime

      When we open app it shows "Updating" it's waste of time. It should not be update in start.

            • It's taking too long to open the app.. used to be more fast

              It's not working well.. need to update it in association with a new iOS. It's being impossible to use it

              • Make Translator App compatible with split-screen

                It would be amazing to use other apps using Split-Screen while using Microsoft Translator.

                  • Fix the landscape orientation bugs in latest version

                    The latest version 3.0 has bugs in landscape mode on the iPad that didn't exist in the previous version. The keyboard opens in portrait mode, even when you're in landscape, and also, when you tap a language name on the screen to change it, the menu of languages opens up in portrait mode, even though the orientation is in landscape. It's so weird that the app behaves like this having some parts of the interface in landscape while other parts buggily open up in portrait mode *over* the parts of the interface are properly oriented in landscape. The app is…

                    • In the new conversation feature, when using the keyboard, it doesn't capitalize the letter of the first word by default.

                      In the new conversation feature, when using the keyboard, it doesn't capitalize the letter of the first word by default.
                      The iOS keyboard should show upper cap letters for the first letter.

                        Hi!
                        When I "contact the translator team" I cannot see what I am typing! (I have an Iphone 5S.) Are you aware of this?
                        (I'm able to write but I can't see what I am typing, I'm stuck on a blank screen.)
                        (I can only see when I've pressed Ok but that's not fun...)
                        The problem doesn't appear in the box here.

                        I was writing because it is very difficult to contact the translator team if a translation is wrong. It should be much much easier. (Is this because I'm on IOS? On the application? Or does this occur with…
