            • Many arabic words have awful wrong translation to french

              Many arabic words have awful wrong translation to french in first time to try your application I know the Arabic language is distinguished . But at least correctly translate the words if we go to sentences it can kill someone the change of meaning
              For example manger =مدير exact translation is أكل eat
              Manque=منع>>>>>>>exact نقص نقصان فقدان

              • Add translation "to" more than one languages at the same time

                Add translation "to" more than one languages at the same time. It would be a very useful feature for those who speak/learn more than one languages at the same time.

                          • Credit Interest is wrongly translated to "Πιστωτικό Ενδιαφέρον"

                            This is a translation correction.
                            When translating "Credit Interest" (financial terms) to Greek the output is "Πιστωτικό (credit) ενδιαφέρον (interest)".
                            There is a subtle difference in greek because we use singlurar or plural to express this phrase, also the singular is male.
                            The financial term of "interest" is "Τόκος" in Greek singular and "Τόκοι" in plural.
                            So the correct and formal translation should be in plural form:
                            "Πιστωτικοί (credit) Τόκοι (interest)".

                            • Keyboard shortcut to speak translation.

                              For use with accessibility software this app needs to be keyboard accessible. I can paste text into the box and type {enter} to translate, but I either need a keyboard shortcut to click the speak button. Ideally it would be fully keyboard accessible. Please contact me if you need more details.

                              • Copy&Paste function

                                Copy&Paste is missing!

                                Suppose to enter a long text and then translate, but you discover to have typed an error (i.e "male" instead of "make"): now you cannot copy the text and modify one letter only, but you have to re-enter the complete text.
