  3. pinyin

    Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but we desperately need a pinyin translation feature when making mandarin translations.

    Basically, if you can't read hanzi (Chinese calligraphic symbols) then the app is essentially useless for you. You would need a second app/ dictionary to translate from hanzi to English. And essentiall ALL BEGINNERS CAN'T READ HANZI! sooooo.... pls guys? pretty pls? A pinyin button that toggles on and off pls?

  7. Translator Extension for Edge: translate text in images

    There's a Translator Edge browser extension available on the Store. It's great!

    However, it would be really cool if that could not only translate text on a web page, but run OCR on any images and translate any text it finds there.

    For example, web pages like this are currently untranslatable: https://www.okayzhihui.com/partner/125/183.html

  14. 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

  15. 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.
