  1. Issue in Croatian phrasebook

    Languages are not capitalised in Croatian, so "I don't speak Croatian." should be translated as "Ne govorim hrvatski.", not "Ne govorim Hrvatski.", and "I speak English." should be translated as "Govorim engleski.", not "Govorim Engleski."

    • Issue in French phrasebook

      Languages are not capitalised in French, so "I don't speak French." should be translated as "Je ne parle pas français.", not "Je ne parle pas Français.", and "I speak English." should be translated as "Je parle anglais.", not "Je parle Anglais."
      This issue also exists in the Croatian phrasebook, so you might want to check other languages for it as well.

      • Instead of having to paste text why can by using 1 click transulate a whole page.

        Now I have to highlight and paste text to translate why can't I do one click and the whole web page at once without copy paste

          • Phonetic Translation!

            I think this concept will beat-out Google and others... Have a checkbox to display a third text frame that will show a phonetic version for the target language. The goal being to help the user (learn how to) say the phrase. It would be best if it showed along with the normal text so the user can correlate the two. There are also potentially two kinds of "phonetic". The primary (initial effort) would be the standards used in dictionaries. The other "seriously cool" version is to use syllables from words in the user's own language. This second approach is "out…

            • kurdish support language

              There are more than 15 million Kurds in the world, but Microsoft does not support Kurdish language in its applications. We would like to state that we are deeply saddened by the Kurds. Please include the Kurdish language in the most recent time.

                Is there any option to have word-to-word translation i.e. without the addition of punctuation marks, capitalization etc. in the result?

                            翻译成

                              It would be helpful to be able to add "custom phrases" to the phrasebook so that they can be assigned as a Favorite. There are phrases that, while not globally common, are common to an area and activity.

                              • pinyin

                                Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but we desperately need a pinyin translation feature when making mandarin translations.

                                Basically, if you can't read hanzi (Chinese calligraphic symbols) then the app is essentially useless for you. You would need a second app/ dictionary to translate from hanzi to English. And essentiall ALL BEGINNERS CAN'T READ HANZI! sooooo.... pls guys? pretty pls? A pinyin button that toggles on and off pls?

                                  On my computer, I am able to download the Chinese language packs, but when I try to do it on my friend's computer, they won't download. I can download the Vietnamese language pack on his, but neither of the Chinese language packs will download. I'm not sure why one downloads but others don't.

                                        • Translator Extension for Edge: translate text in images

                                          There's a Translator Edge browser extension available on the Store. It's great!

                                          However, it would be really cool if that could not only translate text on a web page, but run OCR on any images and translate any text it finds there.

                                          For example, web pages like this are currently untranslatable: https://www.okayzhihui.com/partner/125/183.html
