  1. Add Somali and Amharic

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

  2. Support for split screen

    So this app is really awesome and for the iPhones is just perfect but for IPad is missing 2 features. I am talking as a guy who reads a lot in other languages than my native one so all the time I have 2 apps opened one of them being an translator. So the features that I am talking are landscape mode and split screen support for IPad.

  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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  11. Keep the mic on

    It would be a lot more helpful if the app wouldn’t auto stop the microphone. After maybe 10 seconds it will stop listening and play what they have said so far. I guess it’ll detect a slight pause but it would be better if we determined when to stop the recording.

  16. 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.

  17. Please provide the pronunciation for the original word as well, not only the translated word.

  18. Cantonese Offline Language

    One advantage this app has over other translator apps is support for cantonese Chinese. It would be good if we could offline download the language for use in Hong Kong instead of relying on constant data transfer.

  19. 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!

  20. 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
