  2. Image translation from Chinese signs (hanzi) to romanization (pinyin)

    For many Chinese-Students it would be incredibly helpful to get an image translation from Chinese signs (hanzi) to romanization (pinyin).
    When translating from simplified Chinese to traditional Chinese the app already provides the romanization, but only in a separate text-box. Especially for Chinese workbooks it would be very helpful if the romanization could be displayed in the image, just like English would.
    To me it seems like the technology is already there, but the option is not

  3. Add "Did you mean?"

    I often use a translator when I write in a language new to me. I write it in, say, Spanish, and want to know if I wrote it properly.

    In google translator, they offer "Did you mean..." which in effect corrects my errors. Helps me a lot.

    Please add this feature.

    I much prefer to use Microsoft, but Google translate has this feature. So, Google translator is my go-to translator now.

  4. Add option to see the translated text in your window

    It would be nice if you could see the translated text along with the original text. Similar to the show original text feature.

    This would allow you to see if there might be mistakes in the translation that is sent.

    I know Microsoft Translator for Windows 10 is for personal use, but If there is a function to set "Category ID" on this app to call custom model that deployed on Cognitive Services Custom Translator Portal, that would be great. Is there any chance to get the function in near future?

  6. In Game

    Ce serait bien s'il y aurait une touche rapide permettant, lorsqu'on est dans un jeu vidéo, de pouvoir traduire en direct sur l'écran, ce qui est affiché.

  8. Implement a switch to turn Translator into offline mode!

    Please implement a switch to forcefully turn on the offline mode!
    I'm using a firewall to keep my PC mostly isolated from the internet, but i can't use the translator as i get a translation error every time i try to translate a word. I've downloaded the offline language but it doesn't work after all. I think it'ld be fixed with a switch to forcefully go into offline mode.

  9. Give it the ability to monitor your clipboard

    The App would be way cooler if it could monitor the clipboard.

    Then I wouldn't have to copy and paste every time I want a line of text translated. Just copy.

    Even better, when I play foreign video games, it is sometimes possible to have the game automatically send text to the clipboard.

    So, if the translator could monitor the clipboard, the whole process would be entirely automatic.

    It has an offline mode, right? So I'm not going to overburden somebody's server with requests.

  10. On the LISTEN Feature, ADD a REPEAT!

    Let's say that I am listening to several sentences. It would be extremely helpful to be able to HIGHLIGHT a word, phrase or sentence and then be able to listen to that hard part several times.

  11. On the LISTEN icon, ADD a PAUSE button!!

    I am learning (struggling to learn) German. I type in 8-10 sentences in English. Then I LISTEN to the translation over and over. It would be great to have a PAUSE button.

  12. Return the "use camera to translate text instantly" feature

    In older versions of Microsoft Translator UWP, you can use camera to translate text instantly and overlay the text with translation in realtime. This is very convenient and helpful in many scenarios. In 5.2.0.0 this feature is gone. Please bring it back!

  16. Maori Language Pack

    As Maori is an official language of New Zealand and is making a strong revival it is about time Translator included it. Google has a Maori translator. This language is important to our culture and encourage the uptake of will mean the language will stay alive

  18. 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…

  20. Perfect word-to-word translation option

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