  1. 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?

  6. Can't copy text from input field in Translator 5.2.4

    I can highlight and copy translated text, and there's even a button to copy the entire translation.

    Why can't this be done for the ORIGINAL, untranslated text?

    There are many scenarios where a user would want to retain the original text - I frequently use translator to ensure my intent will translate well from one language to another, and after fine-tuning the input text to achieve an acceptable translation, it would be convenient to be able to retain that original text instead of re-typing it!

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. Fix application language, or add option to choose it

    OS language pack: Polish. Translator interface is in English, which is fine.
    Then I add German keyboard as I need to enter German text from time to time.
    With German keyboard added, Translator interface is in German, which is unwelcomed outcome.
    Either let user choose language, or stop setting app language basing on secondary/tertiary keyboard setup.

  17. 一个极其荒谬的翻译

    A neocortex party ensued. Neocortexes—fine—neocortices shared everything with each other—stories from their past, funny jokes they had thought of, opinions they had formed, plans for the future
    ——
    翻译成
    ——
    随后是一个新的大脑皮层派对。新的, 好的--新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的, 新的,
    这显然是出bug了吧?
