  4. Problem using forum with voiceover

    When the results of a search in the feedback forum are displayed, if the text is long you can only see part of the text with an ellipsis at the end, followed by a ‘more’ button.
    When using voiceover, double tapping on the ‘more’ button does nothing, i.e. does not display all the text of the post.

  6. The Detect Function is Infuriating

    When using the photo function, it‘ll detect the language, override the language I’ve chosen, and then produce untranslated words!!! It keeps detecting German menus as Polish, and then doesn’t translate any of the words BECAUSE ITS NOT POLISH- ITS GERMAN!!! Literally makes the app worthless to me

  7. 拍照翻译建议用回更新前的版本或者修改

    以前拍照翻译特别强大,基本都可以翻译出来,出行也很方便。不管是标示牌还是菜单都可以基本翻译出来,更新之后基本上属于鸡肋功能。菜单就不用说了,连网上的截图也没办法翻译,希望尽快重视并修改。

  8. watch app stopped reading pinned translation

    The watch app stopped reading the translation after a few plays. Removing the app from my brand new series 4 watch and reinstalling it seems to get it working again but only temporarily.

  9. UI not intuitive

    The app is great, but the UI is not intuitive:

    eg I am not sure when it’s actually working on the translation since there is no progress/wait info. I need to wait a couple of seconds and suddenly the translation is there. As a result, I often click several times...

  10. Accept language choice

    When using the OCR photo translation it correctly recognizes the text (using OcR). However it tags the German text as French. When I manually change it, it immediately jumps back to French. As a result, nothing is translated.

  11. Screenshot auto suggest

    Hi. Please add the function to auto suggest the latest screenshot. Meaning, if you take a screenshot and then switching to translator, the latest screenshot is popping up in right corner as suggestion to be translated.

  12. Not an idea but correction

    The English word DISABUSE is incorrectly translated in Norwegian to «MISBRUK» which means abuse. The correct Norwegian word would be «FRIGJØRE» or «LØSLATE»

  13. 翻译声音不够大

    Microsoft translation is very good spp very human, many unexpected functions, the only regret is that the translation of voice is too small, the highest volume is also very light advice optimization.

  14. Reclamações!

    Gostaria de saber, porque que não a dedicação na tradução correta da língua polonesa, o porque que o tradutor não consegue traduzir nem 10% a língua, pois a língua polonesa é equação, e a muitas coisas que sai absurdamente erradas! Ou seja, o português brasileiro já contém muitas coisas erradas que não são entendidas em outros países, coisas viciosas que não existe em outros países, que precisa literalmente serem jogadas fora , E a falta de dedicação em fazer uma intermediação de uma tradução quase 100% correta é complicado, essa é a minha reclamação quanto essa falta de dedicação, agora…

  18. Copy translations / start new translation

    Tap and hold to copy would be very helpful. Now you have to tap, hold, select all, copy.

    Also, being able to start a new translation without having to x it and start again would be much more convenient.
