  1. 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.

    • 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?

      • 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!!!
