  3. Correction Mode/ correction Offer

    As I use the translator mostly in my relationship to learn the language we can see some translations are wrong or not naturally.
    Same for the other way around
    It would be nice when we can offer a correction mode. That would makes the translation more persistent

  9. Reclamações!

    Gostaria de saber, porque que não a dedicação na tradução correta da língua polonesa, o porque que o tradutor não consegue traduzir nem 10% a língua, pois a língua polonesa é equação, e a muitas coisas que sai absurdamente erradas! Ou seja, o português brasileiro já contém muitas coisas erradas que não são entendidas em outros países, coisas viciosas que não existe em outros países, que precisa literalmente serem jogadas fora , E a falta de dedicação em fazer uma intermediação de uma tradução quase 100% correta é complicado, essa é a minha reclamação quanto essa falta de dedicação, agora…

  10. Broken as of today’s update

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

  11. Language choice

    When changing a language the text to be translated is automatically erased. That should not happen. If I want I should be able to.
    Sometimes I would start typing and then realize I need to change source and or target. And then I have to retype again

  12. 建议完善各种语言数据库

    app的语言数据包越来越小、越来越精简,以致于不少翻译结果不准确或不完整!在完善语言数据库的同时提升离线数据包的下载效率。

  16. Copy translations / start new translation

    Tap and hold to copy would be very helpful. Now you have to tap, hold, select all, copy.

    Also, being able to start a new translation without having to x it and start again would be much more convenient.

  19. The translation is not smart when the sentence split into two line in camera mode

    The translation is not smart when the sentence split into two line in camera mode. The Mr.Translator has a”Join” function for this. I’ve tested it using English to Chinese.

  20. Frequent issues in China

    I frequently have issues translating photos while in China. It will state the service is unavailable. Sometimes, using a VPN or restarting the app will fix it. But it is very challenging!
