  2. New feature needed to save the translated language text to an editable document format.

    I do a lot of Chinese to English translations.

    Is there a way to save the translated English from a voice, keyboard, or camera translation to an editable document format like Word for further refinement from inside the App?

    If not, then a feature to perform this would be a super addition to the App.

  3. The app will let me download languages for offline use, but not spanish!

    It starts to download and then stops once the circle is full. Easily let’s me download other languages for offline use.

  5. Fix Japanese text translations.

    99% of all Japanese text I have to work with is up and down. It’s not horizontal. Please add an option to work with text oriented in this way.

    If you want to see what I’m talking about look at any manga comic.

  6. Add feature to translate a whole page on Edge for iOS

    Translator doesn't work in Edge on iOS while it works in Safari on the same device.
    It works in both when translating a text selection but not in Edge for a whole page.

    These languages are prevalent in the Seattle area and would be useful to add into the app

  13. Translate last photo taken

    Perhaps the writers of this app don’t use it, but when living in a foreign country, much of what needs to be translated comes from an app, or a source which can be captured by a screen shot. It would be very convenient to translate the last picture in photos. Currently takes many clicks. Please implement this!

  15. Timeout problem

    I use MS Translator a lot on my travels and generally find it to be a great tool, both online and offline.

    However, I’ve found an issue today which would be great to get fixed. I’m currently in China and have put a Chinese SIM in my phone for 4G access. In China, access to some sites is restricted which I’m guessing might be causing the issue I’m experiencing. I have to put my phone into airplane mode for the Translator app to work now, if the data connection is active, the app just hangs in the home screen and…
