  1. 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

  3. 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…

  4. Text to speech should have a reading speed adjustment

    Just did some English<-->French testing. The French text-to-speech was stilted/choppy and the speed made it very difficult to follow. There should be a speaking speed adjustment right on the main window so the user can easily select a comfortable speed using the current translation as a sample over and over.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  9. Words with multiple meanings aren't properly displayed

    There is always only one meaning displayed for any word, including a word with multiple meanings. Try translating "content" from English to Chinese, and we get "內容" - when in fact it means "內容", "含量", or "滿足". Maybe displaying "內容; 含量; 滿足" would be better than just "內容".

  14. 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

  16. Add phrase to phrasebook

    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.

  17. 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?

  18. 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.
