    • Crashing

      When I open the app it automatically closes. I have deleted the app and reinstalled it, but the issue keeps happening.

              微软翻译相对来讲还是准确的,但是翻译完之后没有任何播放单词的功能,所以建议添加

                      • Persistent conversation mode

                        Make conversation a bit more like whatsapp with translation, stay in background with notifications. Useful when spanish friends stay for a few days! Also if only two languages being used when sending the message would like the translation to help my spanish!

                                    • 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?

                                          The translation from Italian to English says “Daylight Savings Time” but should be “.....Saving....” (ie without the second “s”).
