  2. the output voice is at a fast-forwarded speed

    I am using the app in windows 10. When I press the 'Listen' button, the output voice is at a fast-forwarded speed. I don't understand what it is saying even in my mother language.

    This problem is appearing in my 2nd use of this app. Please, how to fix it?

  3. arm64 Version for Windows on ARM

    Hey,
    Since Microsoft already released a second version of their Surface Pro X running Windows on ARM. I would really appreciate it to use this app natively and in a new brilliant Fluent Design on my Surface Pro X.
    Greeting!

  4. Live tile no longer working

    Since perhaps a couple of months ago, the Translator's app live tile doesn't show words or phrases; it just shows the app icon. Please bring back the word/phrase of the day.

  5. There is a bug in the Hebrew translator.

    The Hebrew phrase:
    שבת שלום וחג שמח!

    (which literally means Good Sabbath and Happy Holiday)

    is translated to

    Shabbat Shalom and Merry Christmas!

    Obviously, it is not correct 🤔😎

  8. Phrasebook crashes

    I use Translator for Windows 10 to translate from English to German.
    When I click the Phrasebook icon the categorized phrases screen appears. If I then click a category, a new window opens and for a few seconds I can see that the translation setting is from English to Spain and than the program crashes without any notice.
    I am not able to change the translation setting from English to German or clicking on anything. The program crashes immediately when a Phrasebook category is clicked.

  18. The word "Danish" is incorrectly translated into "English"

    The language name for Danish (Dansk) is not recognized as a language-name, and gets translated as well.
    If you replace "Dansk" with "Tysk" (German), the translator does not make this issue.

    The following sentence, translated from Danish to English, defeats the meaning of the original message leading to a misinterpretation of the described problem - which is bad.

    "Sprogcommunity tror et tekstområde i Edge er US-EN, selv om teksten, der vises, er på sproget Dansk"

    Turns into the following:

    Language Community believes a text area in Edge is US-EN, although the text that appears is in the language English (Not…

  19. 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.
