  1. Language choice

    When changing a language the text to be translated is automatically erased. That should not happen. If I want I should be able to.
    Sometimes I would start typing and then realize I need to change source and or target. And then I have to retype again

  2. 为什么忽略阿拉伯数字的翻译?

    做为翻译软件,不管什么样的文字,只要符合语言翻译的条件,无论多么简单,都应该系统地按照用户要求进行转换和翻译。

  5. 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!

  12. When trying to change the text you’re translating from, the cursor jumps to the end of the phrase

    When trying to change the text you’re translating from, the cursor jumps to the end of the phrase every single character you try to enter in new.

  14. Why the whole window must be vertical way?

    This is very inconvenient for iPad user, especially when you need to tap with Smart Keyboard!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And there is no setting preference for this, the design is a bug! How to use when you want to type!

  19. Translate in keyboard

    It is necessary that there was a built-in keyboard that can be downloaded but iOS for example you type in the native language keyboards are automatically translated into the language that you need so the same when you have a message and including that club

  20. 增加翻译后可播放单词功能

    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
