    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.

  4. In Game

    Ce serait bien s'il y aurait une touche rapide permettant, lorsqu'on est dans un jeu vidéo, de pouvoir traduire en direct sur l'écran, ce qui est affiché.

  8. 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.

  14. On the LISTEN Feature, ADD a REPEAT!

    Let's say that I am listening to several sentences. It would be extremely helpful to be able to HIGHLIGHT a word, phrase or sentence and then be able to listen to that hard part several times.

  15. On the LISTEN icon, ADD a PAUSE button!!

    I am learning (struggling to learn) German. I type in 8-10 sentences in English. Then I LISTEN to the translation over and over. It would be great to have a PAUSE button.

  17. The word "Danish" is incorrectly translated into "English"

    The language name for Danish (Dansk) is not recognized as a language-name, and gets translated as well.
    If you replace "Dansk" with "Tysk" (German), the translator does not make this issue.

    The following sentence, translated from Danish to English, defeats the meaning of the original message leading to a misinterpretation of the described problem - which is bad.

    "Sprogcommunity tror et tekstområde i Edge er US-EN, selv om teksten, der vises, er på sproget Dansk"

    Turns into the following:

    Language Community believes a text area in Edge is US-EN, although the text that appears is in the language English (Not…

  18. Fix Right-Click Context Menu Text Blacked Out

    When using light-mode, the text on the right-click menu (example: copy, paste) is not readable. The text box is solid black, so I cannot see the black text. If I switch to dark-mode, I can see the white lettering. It only started doing this after a recent update.

  20. Fix application language, or add option to choose it

    OS language pack: Polish. Translator interface is in English, which is fine.
    Then I add German keyboard as I need to enter German text from time to time.
    With German keyboard added, Translator interface is in German, which is unwelcomed outcome.
    Either let user choose language, or stop setting app language basing on secondary/tertiary keyboard setup.
