  3. Direct action to translate last taken screenshot

    Exactly that.

    Just on the launch page of the app.
    Offer a button to automatically translate (should use the same translation language as the safari translation or latest used)

    An additional scenarios would be to be able to do a share of a picture from album view into translate app (which will then do the same as above, but with that picture instead of the last taken one)

  4. 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.

  6. 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

  11. Offer the possibility to save the conversation when using the conversation feature in Speech Translations

    I love the use of Dual Microphones! The only downside is that I cannot see in history the translations from Dual Microphone use! Would you please please add it in!!!

  12. Kannada language translation required

    Hello
    I could not see Kannada language translation option available. They are nearly 60 million Kannada speakers. I hope Kannada option would be available soon.

  13. Support for split screen

    So this app is really awesome and for the iPhones is just perfect but for IPad is missing 2 features. I am talking as a guy who reads a lot in other languages than my native one so all the time I have 2 apps opened one of them being an translator. So the features that I am talking are landscape mode and split screen support for IPad.

  14. 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.

  15. Full Blown IM

    While I can have conversations, they appear to close when using different parts of the app. Is there a way to have multiple permanent conversations (like in WhatsApp) with the different members connected in their own languages?

  18. Not registering full sentences when using Speech translations

    The voice recording on the 1-1 translator requires the green button to be held down long after the words are spoken or else the last part of the sentence is cut off. It is not functioning intuitively
