  7. Timeout problem

    I use MS Translator a lot on my travels and generally find it to be a great tool, both online and offline.

    However, I’ve found an issue today which would be great to get fixed. I’m currently in China and have put a Chinese SIM in my phone for 4G access. In China, access to some sites is restricted which I’m guessing might be causing the issue I’m experiencing. I have to put my phone into airplane mode for the Translator app to work now, if the data connection is active, the app just hangs in the home screen and…

  11. Textbox for “Join to conversation” is too narrow

    On iOS 12, Screen layout of conversation feature is broken.
    Textbox for “Join to conversation” is too narrow.
    So if we try to input conversation code and tap textbox, QR code button react very often.
    It’s difficult to focus on conversation code textbox.

  13. 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
