  3. Result does not start a newline correctly.

    When we translate a sentence consisted of 100+ lines, 100th line ignore line break.

    Repro steps:
    1. Write "test" 105 lines.
    2. Translate input into Japanese.

    Result : 100th line of output is "テストテスト". And result consisted of 104 lines.

    Expected : 100th line of output is "テスト". And result consisted of 105 lines.

  5. Black frame around the words in Live Tile

    Live Tile is great!, but I suggest that you put a small black frame around the words, because sometimes they are difficult to read due to a light background, thank you.

  6. Word wrap text in the wide live tile (or fix padding)

    I've got the Translator live tile turned on, set to go from English to Chinese Simplified. Today, the English phrase shown is "The ski slope is dangerous."

    When I set the tile size to "wide" the English text is not word-wrapped. Instead, it appears truncated: "The ski slope is dangero..."

    Yet, there's plenty of room in the wide tile to word-wrap the English phrase.

    I think the problem is that there is too much padding on the left of the text on the wide tile. I noticed that when I set the tile size to "large" the tile takes up…

  7. Spanish translation thinks última (adj.) and ultima (verb ultimar, 3rd per. pres.) are the same word

    For example, the sentence "Escribiendo la palabra última ultima mi mensaje." was translated as "Writing the Last word I last my message." which is nonsensical. The correct meaning is "Writing the last word brings my message to an end."

  8. Include spoken Cantonese, which is used by the majority of Chinatowns in the West (e.g. US, Canada, UK and Australia) and Latin America.

    Having spoken Cantonese would be helpful to those of us who have Chinese clients (patients) in the US. Many do not speak Mandarin. Because of immigration from Hong Kong and Guangdong, Cantonese is the language used by most Chinatowns throughout the West (e.g. US, Canada, UK and Australia) and Latin America.

  9. Since this update to use Cortana, I have not gotten the app to even start up successfully.

    Since this update to use Cortana, I have not gotten the app to even start up successfully.

    I LOVED and USED the previous version often. I can't use the current version at all. I have given up trying to find a solution... :'(

  15. How can I force Microsoft Translator to work offline?

    Locking down Translator in firewall rules doesn't work. Just produces an error. Physically disabling the internet port then allows it to run offline. I just want the tool to run offline, while allowing other tools to work online with out having to visualize it.
