  4. Auto correct

    When translating from say Spanish auto correct automatically replaces words with English. Example esta becomes eats.

  12. More than a translated word

    When a single word is translated, we need to see more than translation of the word, because some words have more than a meaning in the other language, like how google translate does it.

  13. Cantonese Transliteration and pronunciation

    Regarding Cantonese, how about someone add transliteration (romanization of characters) and text to speech pronunciation? If I copy and paste an unfamiliar Cantonese phrase, the best way to learn it would be to read a romanized version and hear the pronunciation. This is definitely needed from Cantonese to English translations and vice versa.

    Also how about being able to draw a character to transliterate/translate it?

  14. 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!!!
