    • Camera

      Camera translator worked great until I did the June 22 upgrade. Now it only work about 10% of the time. What changes or adjustments can be made to restore camera translator functionality ?

      • New feature needed to save the translated language text to an editable document format.

        I do a lot of Chinese to English translations.

        Is there a way to save the translated English from a voice, keyboard, or camera translation to an editable document format like Word for further refinement from inside the App?

        If not, then a feature to perform this would be a super addition to the App.

                • Add feature to translate a whole page on Edge for iOS

                  Translator doesn't work in Edge on iOS while it works in Safari on the same device.
                  It works in both when translating a text selection but not in Edge for a whole page.

                  • Landscape Mode for iPad

                    I don’t understand why there is no landscape mode for the iPad version where it is only logical that most people use the iPad in landscape mode most of the time since it’s a productivity and entertainment device.

                    Please allow the app to work on landscape. It is also better when using it on split screen.

                        • Screenshot auto suggest

                          Hi. Please add the function to auto suggest the latest screenshot. Meaning, if you take a screenshot and then switching to translator, the latest screenshot is popping up in right corner as suggestion to be translated.

                            • Option to display ‘romaji’ when translating into Japanese.

                              Many people who can speak a little bit of Japanese are functionally illiterate when it comes to reading. Having the option to display a romanized version of translations would help.
