  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  7. 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?
