  5. Transliteration into English/Latin alphabet

    What is your name? tranalates to तुम्हारा नाम क्या है? in Hindi. This is useful only if I know how to read Hindi. The usefulness of the app can be multiplied by many times if the transliteration for तुम्हारा नाम क्या है? which is "tumhara naam kya hai" is also shown.

    This is true for any non-English translations.

  6. Enable External Keyboard Support

    With the new iPad Pros coming out, more and more people will be using iPad's with external keyboards. Having support for keyboard with shortcuts as well would be great!

  8. Southern and Northern Vietnamese Dialects

    I have not found any app or online translator that features a Southern Vietnamese dialect. All translators that I have found use the northern dialect, which is the more formal, but less-commonly spoken dialect for many Vietnamese communities outside of Vietnam, especially those in the U.S. An option for the southern dialect would be immensely helpful.

  9. Improve please

    Translation is not even accurate, you disappoint me. For such a big company with such failure of translation, not even 75% accurate. Your iTranslate app is much better in terms of accuracy but can’t take pictures for translation. Yet powered by the same company, both apps for translation I use is from Microsoft but definitely there’s a gap between the pro and the non-pro.

    Also another thing for improvement is the app. When I take the picture for translation there are words in picture and it says it can’t find anything??? Like you need to test the app before it…

  10. Upload commonly used words

    I’d like to upload commonly used words at my job. For example, as a software architect, I would upload commonly used words and acronyms in the field so Translator may pick it out and use it rather than it picking something else. As a deaf person, this will benefit me greatly!

  12. Cambodia!!!

    I have been traveling the world with the help of your app. I landed in Cambodia, looked up Khmer on your app and was shocked to find that your app has fake languages like Klingon but does not have a real language like Khmer. Cambodia is a lovely country and it would be easier to navigate if your app had the language.

  13. Apple Watch bug fix needed

    The Apple Watch app stops displaying pinned translations or even translate altogether after a while. I have to constantly uninstall and reinstall the app on my phone for the Watch app to start working again.

  14. Ideia que vale milhões

    Criar uma tradução específica para área de saúde, muitos termos estão errôneos. Acredito que esta ideia irá alavancar o translator entre a classe médica.

    - utilizar termos médicos, desde doenças até tratamento com drogas;
    - utilizar fotos para traduzir qual doença está acometida;
    - Criar um suporte online para médicos - poderá ser para outras áreas também. Seria um "Tira dúvidas"
    - Criar um software que ao tirar uma foto de um eletrocardiograma ou Rx, por exemplo, o tradutor indique o problema;
    - vocês ganharão milhões com essas ideias.

    Atenciosamente,

    Leonardo Vieira da Rosa
    Médico clínico - cardiologista - Brasileiro

  18. suggestion photo a traduire

    la traduction sur une photo texte :

    plutot que de faire un appuie au doigt pour faire apparaître la photo d’origine et enlever la traduction, faire ceci :

    —)) rester appuyer sur la photo, cache la traduction et dès qu’on relâche, la traduction réapparaît. cela permet de mieux lire le texte d’origine de la photo. ou alors, jouer sur la transparence pour lire plus facilement le texte d’origine de la photo a traduire.
