          • 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.

            • 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.

                            • When trying to change the text you’re translating from, the cursor jumps to the end of the phrase

                              When trying to change the text you’re translating from, the cursor jumps to the end of the phrase every single character you try to enter in new.
