  5. Fix Japanese text translations.

    99% of all Japanese text I have to work with is up and down. It’s not horizontal. Please add an option to work with text oriented in this way.

    If you want to see what I’m talking about look at any manga comic.

  6. Improve please

    Translation is not even accurate, you disappoint me. For such a big company with such failure of translation, not even 75% accurate. Your iTranslate app is much better in terms of accuracy but can’t take pictures for translation. Yet powered by the same company, both apps for translation I use is from Microsoft but definitely there’s a gap between the pro and the non-pro.

    Also another thing for improvement is the app. When I take the picture for translation there are words in picture and it says it can’t find anything??? Like you need to test the app before it…

  7. 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.

  12. Cambodia!!!

    I have been traveling the world with the help of your app. I landed in Cambodia, looked up Khmer on your app and was shocked to find that your app has fake languages like Klingon but does not have a real language like Khmer. Cambodia is a lovely country and it would be easier to navigate if your app had the language.

  13. Please provide the pronunciation for the original word as well, not only the translated word.

  14. Cantonese Offline Language

    One advantage this app has over other translator apps is support for cantonese Chinese. It would be good if we could offline download the language for use in Hong Kong instead of relying on constant data transfer.

  16. Translate last photo taken

    Perhaps the writers of this app don’t use it, but when living in a foreign country, much of what needs to be translated comes from an app, or a source which can be captured by a screen shot. It would be very convenient to translate the last picture in photos. Currently takes many clicks. Please implement this!

  18. Timeout problem

    I use MS Translator a lot on my travels and generally find it to be a great tool, both online and offline.

    However, I’ve found an issue today which would be great to get fixed. I’m currently in China and have put a Chinese SIM in my phone for 4G access. In China, access to some sites is restricted which I’m guessing might be causing the issue I’m experiencing. I have to put my phone into airplane mode for the Translator app to work now, if the data connection is active, the app just hangs in the home screen and…

  19. Broken as of today’s update

    Today’s update broke translator. App opens but buttons don’t do anything. Restart doesn’t resolve.

  20. Transliteration into English/Latin alphabet

    What is your name? tranalates to तुम्हारा नाम क्या है? in Hindi. This is useful only if I know how to read Hindi. The usefulness of the app can be multiplied by many times if the transliteration for तुम्हारा नाम क्या है? which is "tumhara naam kya hai" is also shown.

    This is true for any non-English translations.
