    • 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。

        • Auto correct

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

              • Chinese Characters and Pinyin juxtapose in one page

                Hi, I believe it will be more handy for learners to juxtapose the Pinyin with the Chinese characters in one page, ideally below the characters, rather than having to slide to the next slide. This allows the user and for learners to easily identify the pinyin with the associated characters.
                Thanks!

                      • Classical Portuguese rather than Brazilian

                        I noticed that the Portuguese translation goes into Brazilian/South American Portuguese rather than European/Classical Portuguese. It would be good to have both as an option.

                                      • FAILURE TO CONVERT WORD NUMBERS

                                        When 'two hundred and twenty' typed in English to be translated to Italian, a figure is wrongly given '220'. The word equivalent should be given as in the Google Translate, for the Italian. This is essential, as these numbers are used for invoicing purposes. The omission is therefore bad!
