    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?

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  11. Application hotkeys

  12. 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…

  13. 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?

  16. Show me the pin yin for Chinese I paste

    In Microsoft Translator, when I translate from English to Chinese it will show me the Chinese translation and also show me the pin yin pronunciation below. This is fantastic!

    Now I want to see the pin yin when I translate from Chinese to English.

  19. 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
