  1. 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.

  4. Translations must be made to fit the live tile in the start menu

    It's very frustrating when you can't read the full translation of the live tile. This is especially an issue with the Medium size, because making the tile larger results in another word of the day! And there's no way to see the words of the day in the app itself or something either...

    For example, I have English -> Romanian on a live tile of Medium size. The word of the day is "record store", but I can't fully see the translation in Romanian, only "magazin de di". And when I type "record store" in the app, I get "magazin…

  8. How can I force Microsoft Translator to work offline?

    Locking down Translator in firewall rules doesn't work. Just produces an error. Physically disabling the internet port then allows it to run offline. I just want the tool to run offline, while allowing other tools to work online with out having to visualize it.

  10. Provide articles for single words

    Supply word articles which shows different translations, meanings and different forms (e.g. Past, Perfect) such as Abby Lingvo has.
    Also within a text translation several word translations should be offered

  13. 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".

  17. Sería bueno que se agregara a la Traducción de cualquier idioma los fonemas de las palabras.

    Los fonemas en muchas de las ocasiones sirven como guia para el aprendizaje de un idioma pues permiten identificar la correcta pronunciación de las palabras. En ese sentido debajo de las palabras debería aparecer el fonema, esto en cuanto textos cortos o palabras. Cuando se trate de textos largos se podría agregar una opcion para que apareciera o no con los fonemas.

  20. Have a "listen" icon on both ends of the traslation.
