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

    have a "listen" icon on both ends of the translation. We do not always know how to pronounce what we want to be translated

  3. pronunciation (Text to speech) is not available for the unknown world which is necessary but it's available for the translated word

    pronunciation (Text to speech) is not available for the unknown world which is necessary to improve pronunciation and listening skills about a new language, but it's available for the translated word in user's language of choice (usually user's mother tongue) which is pointless.

  4. Have a default or starting translation key

    Have a bottom to set the default setting - example detect > English. Currently if I get into translation and have to change languages I have to reset this up every time if I do not know the origin language

  7. Show what language was detected when using detect to another language

    Once detected show something that tells which language was detected as its not always obvious (for example Spanish and Portuguese)

  15. Can't copy text from input field in Translator 5.2.4

    I can highlight and copy translated text, and there's even a button to copy the entire translation.

    Why can't this be done for the ORIGINAL, untranslated text?

    There are many scenarios where a user would want to retain the original text - I frequently use translator to ensure my intent will translate well from one language to another, and after fine-tuning the input text to achieve an acceptable translation, it would be convenient to be able to retain that original text instead of re-typing it!

  18. Correct translation errors

    Installed latest version of Translator for Windows 10. Norwegian -> English "Unable to translate" error message when trying to translate lots of words; other words is translated wrong: Norwegian word for "vise" is translated to "clock". lots of other words also translate wrong. Only words that is equal or almost equal in Norwegian and English is translated correct.
    Synonyms get only one of the possible translation (has been a problem for a long time). This is giving strange results when a whole sentence is typed.

  19. Personal names and company names should not be translated

    Nombres propios y marcas comerciales no deberían ser traducidas.

    En Español, los nombres propios y las marcas comerciales, no se traducen, se escriben tal cual estén en el idioma de origen. Esto debería ser tenido en cuenta de algún modo, para evitar confusiones. Ej.: traducir General Electric como "eléctrico general" o John como "Juan" es absolutamente incorrecto.
