    • It would be good to be able copy from words in translated history

      After a translation it is not possible to marqee and copy the word shown in translated history. Make the translated word copiable and it will speed up correction of typo errors, especially on long words

          • copy the translation right clicking on the translated text (and not only from the bottom menu)

            It is not so friendly to use the bottom menu Copy item to get a copy of the translated text: much better to have a visible button and/or a right click option

            • Binary Language

              The App is fantastic! If I could I would only add that it would be nice if the App and the site could also translate binary language to text.
              Thanks folks. Best regards!

              • I wish that Translator could transform English punctuation into Chinese punctuation as well as the rules of punctuation

                For example, ", (with a blank)" into ",", and ". (with a blank)" into "。"

                    • Turn the green bar with "new Intoducing Conversations:..." off

                      after seeing like 100 times the green bar with "new Intoducing Conversations:..." in the app, it's getting quite annoying. And each time you close it, it will pop up again. Pls turn it off

                                        *** Avoir le droit de copier le texte original pour traduire dans une autre langue sans avoir à tout saisir de nouveau au clavier ***
                                        Actuellement il faut que je saisisse mon texte original AUPARAVANT dans bloc note car si je me suis trompé de langue je devrais tout recommencer la saisie, une machine qui vous oblige à faire des choses imbéciles et inutiles, c'est très frustrant.
