  1. 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.

  2. Comparing Google Translate to Microsoft Translator on iPad

    Two basic features which make Google’s app better:
    Automatic spell check is disabled and this is very necessary.
    Google’s iPad application works in landscape and portrait mode.

  4. zoom in photo translation does not work anymore

    Zooming in a translated photo does not work properly anymore.

    I used to take a photo of a text, the translator would translate it, and then I would zoom into the photo to see the translation of the text.

    NOW, the superimposed translated text is not complete and if I zoom into the translated text, the translated text stays at the same size and only the original text is zoomed.

    This happens with the latest version of the app: 3.2.6 on the latest version of iOS. This problem appeared recently.

  6. 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.

  10. Camera translation

    The problem with the camera translator is that it gives different answers or says can translate. Was doing it with Chinese to english and took same picture multiple times and each time said something different. Even with english into english couldnt read whats in pic even though its clearly legible

  16. Apple watch

    Latest version 3.2.6 that's supposed to have "significantly improved support for Apple Watch" doesn't even show up as an app that can be installed on the watch! (I'm on watch OS 5.1)

  18. Classical Portuguese rather than Brazilian

    I noticed that the Portuguese translation goes into Brazilian/South American Portuguese rather than European/Classical Portuguese. It would be good to have both as an option.

  20. The share -translate on iOS doesn't work

    I'm translating many screenshots of Chinese apps from Chinese to English but the share - translate function on iOS doesn't translate. The loading circle just keeps turning around. Last time I checked it was also automatically setting the translate language Afrikaans - English

    Would love for this to be fixed because after using share - translate, iOS asks me to delete the print screen instead of saving the image into my photo album and uploading it to my iCloud
