  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

      Unfortunately we had a bug in our Translator. The good news is that
      the bug has been fixed and that we will update the Translator in the
      online store soon.

      As soon as I have confirmation that the updated app is available for download I will contact you again.

      Best regards,

      It is inconvenient with the new version. It always shows updating when i open this app.

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

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

          • Update

            When I start the application, it goes in update mode, I need to work it at once to translate, when I meet people, Google translate doesn't, and it works fine

                        Mandarin was supported before 2017/01/29 but now is not. Please restore Mandarin to supported language status and fix bug. Thanks.

                        • Constantly updating

                          It updates every time I open it and it's embarrassing and awkward for myself and the other party waiting for it to load so we can understand each other.

                                  Your system translates nicely from english to czech and czech to english, but your system does not allow for me to hear the translation in czech, only in english, WHY?

                                    • Wrong translations

                                      You translate 旧友 as "the old ones" when native Mandarin speakers say it means "old friend."
