  1. Chinese to English translation should also translate to Pinyin.

    Your Traditional Chinese to English translation is very good, much better than Google. Please also display the English to Pinyin translation just like Google does.

    • 英語と日本語の間での翻訳で、全く逆の意味になる文がありました。

      'This is the original software, not a port of "foo".'
      この日本語訳が
      「これは、オリジナルのソフトウェアではなく、"foo" のポートです。」
      になります。
      逆方向の翻訳でも同じです。
      このような全く逆の意味になってしまう例を見てしまうと、怖くてとても使う気にはなれません。

        • Chinese comma ocuupies 2 letter characters, not an English comma + 1 letter character.

          Chinese comma is different from English comma, would you please change that in Bing Translator for transtlating English into Chinese? Thank you.

            • Russian sorely lacking, here is but one example... Царь words

              I always like to give a new-to-me translator something like this just to see what it will give back. So I simply put in the first lines to the classic song Боже, Царя храни! and it spit out a pretty mangled up piece of work. This isn't an exceptionally difficult text. It had a lot of difficulty with царь oriented words.

              Text:

              Сильный, Державный,
              Царствуй на славу,
              На славу нам!
              Царствуй на страх врагам,
              Царь Православный;
              Боже, Царя храни!

              Bing translation:

              God bless you!
              Strong, Power,
              Reign on fame,
              To us!
              Reign on the fear of the enemy,
              King of…

                • dictionary from english to arabic doesn't translate plural

                  translation from English to Arabic doesn't provide translation for the plural words in most of the cases.

                      • Add pause botton for listening

                        Hi, I would appreciate if you add a "pause bottom" when one wants to listen the words to translate. The translator reads very fast.

                        • Improve hungarian, it's currently rubbish!

                          There aren't many hungarian speakers in the world, so it's probably not a priority, but please, please, please improve the quality of translation, otherwise I won't be able to speak to my in-laws!!

                          Thanks

                          David

                          • Bug: Translating from Norwegian

                            I tried to translate the phrase: "stå ikke bare der" which should mean something like "don't just stand there"

                            The english translation was just one word "do" and other languages also had the same wrong translation. This is obviously wrong.

                            (Also, I could not find any proper place to report bugs, so I'm posting here, even though this doesn't seem like the best place)

                            • please provide an english-Pinyin translation.

                              Many expats in China can read and understand Pinyin but not the traditional or simplified Chinese writing.

                              • "Programme" auto-detected as FRENCH Language!

                                I have a script to translate all input into English Language (if not English). So first the language has to be detected, before translating into English.

                                But then when users input "Programme", because the translator detected it as "FRENCH". And hence the text was translated into "Program" in English. That made things went wrong badly, and i got puzzled for a few days.

                                    • Oui mais il faudrait être capable de modifier la grandeur et la grosseur des caractères de la partie traduite. Ca prendrait un genre d'édit

                                      Ca prendrait un éditeur de texte pour la traduction et des facilités à l'exportation de la partie traduite pour pouvoir grossir et réarranger le texte.

                                      • Wrong translation from English to Hebrew

                                        the word miscegenation is translated as הודעות דחופות which means "urgent messages", and NOT the actual meaning "the interbreeding of people considered to be of different racial types" - it should be נישואי תערובת
