  5. Cannot insert text

    On iOS when going back to insert a word you can only add one letter before the cursor automatically jumps back to the end of the full text. Can this be fixed so that words can be inserted more easily

  6. 建议完善各种语言数据库

    app的语言数据包越来越小、越来越精简,以致于不少翻译结果不准确或不完整!在完善语言数据库的同时提升离线数据包的下载效率。

  7. Correction Mode/ correction Offer

    As I use the translator mostly in my relationship to learn the language we can see some translations are wrong or not naturally.
    Same for the other way around
    It would be nice when we can offer a correction mode. That would makes the translation more persistent

  9. App doesn’t translate any longer when there are multiple languages on one page.

    Have to crop the screen dump now to filter texts. Eg one word English in Chinese text, and the translation to English stops. What has changed? Used to work smoothly.

  11. 离线模式翻译句子速度很慢

    离线模式翻译句子速度的快慢与句子长度并不成正比,复制句子后即使删去大部分也还是翻译慢

  12. French numerals

    Why, when I want to translate numbers and I enter, for example, thirty five, does the app so intelligently come up with the numerals 35 instead of trent cinque? The same thing applies to just about any number that requires more than one word as a reply. This is not a translation. I haven’t tried any other language for this, I just reverted to the google app on another device. I really want to avoid anything google on my new iPhone, their apps are designed to bypass the app restrictions that iPhones provide and work in the background and invade…
