  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. 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

  8. 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?

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. Implement a switch to turn Translator into offline mode!

    Please implement a switch to forcefully turn on the offline mode!
    I'm using a firewall to keep my PC mostly isolated from the internet, but i can't use the translator as i get a translation error every time i try to translate a word. I've downloaded the offline language but it doesn't work after all. I think it'ld be fixed with a switch to forcefully go into offline mode.

    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?

  19. 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.
