  5. Direct action to translate last taken screenshot

    Exactly that.

    Just on the launch page of the app.
    Offer a button to automatically translate (should use the same translation language as the safari translation or latest used)

    An additional scenarios would be to be able to do a share of a picture from album view into translate app (which will then do the same as above, but with that picture instead of the last taken one)

  9. 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?

  10. 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!!!

  11. Daylight Saving Time

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

  14. Not registering full sentences when using Speech translations

    The voice recording on the 1-1 translator requires the green button to be held down long after the words are spoken or else the last part of the sentence is cut off. It is not functioning intuitively

  15. In App Help

    For example, checking a Spanish to English translation for school, some of the words are underlined in red. Does this mean they are incorrect, even though the translation makes sense?

  19. Camera translation

    The problem with the camera translator is that it gives different answers or says can translate. Was doing it with Chinese to english and took same picture multiple times and each time said something different. Even with english into english couldnt read whats in pic even though its clearly legible
