  1. 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!!!

  2. Hello I am faizan

    You prefer not giving Urdu language other languages, but Urdu 600 to 700 million people have a spoken language.

  4. 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.

  10. App doesn’t translate any longer when there are multiple languages on one page.

    Have to crop the screen dump now to filter texts. Eg one word English in Chinese text, and the translation to English stops. What has changed? Used to work smoothly.

  14. English to Chinese bug found

    I clicked on a essential phrase such I am sick, clicked on speaker to play the phrase and the playback was correct. Then I switched to a different phrase and clicked on speaker and it play-backed the First phrase. Switched to another phrase but still the first phrase was play backed. Please fix

  18. Option to capture image without pressing camera button

    日本で売られているiPhoneは、国の規制により、シャッター音が出るようになっており、はずすことができません。
    画像イメージから翻訳させたいケースが、特に会議などで多いですが、シャッター音を出すわけにはいかないので、使えなくてこまっています。
    以前のベータ版にはシャッターボタンを押さなくてもイメージをキャプションして翻訳出来ていましたが、オプションでもいいのでその機能を戻していただきたいです。

  20. Overheating while using camera translation

    I have a problem with this app on my iPhone. It drains my battery while using camera translation and the iPhone is overheating. This is not something that happens while using other apps... Please see to it. Thank you. :)
