  3. thumb-drive version for both translotor and language packs

    I am travelling to a remote area with no internet. I want to install MS-Transltor on a machine there with English-Chinese translation capabilities. Is there a way of having the application, and the two language packs on an external drive, like a thumb drive? Please email me as I will miss a forum-based answer.

  4. Image translator disappeared suddenly

    I installed Microsoft Translator in the morning, since morning it worked well, but by the time the Image, Voice translator options are not there, only Text conversion is there. What has been done in the background by you guys?

  5. 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. numbers

    I have noticed that translations of numbers from English to PT (European) are useless in Translator for Windows 10. If I try to translate "twenty four" from English to PT the translation is "24" (not spelled out as words). Translator for Android works correctly. English to PT (Brasil) seems to work fine.

  7. 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.

  8. 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 🤔😎

  10. to upload more vocabularly word combinations Russian-English

    Translator is very simple and translation is incorrect sometimes. Online dictionary www.multitran.ru is far more advanced.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  18. App is always in offline mode, if my F-Secure Freedome VPN is on. No other app has this problem.

    Connection method of Translator needs to be fixed so it works even with VPN on. Now I always have to turn off VPN to download language packages and online use is not normally possible.

  20. 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.
