              • Return the "use camera to translate text instantly" feature

                In older versions of Microsoft Translator UWP, you can use camera to translate text instantly and overlay the text with translation in realtime. This is very convenient and helpful in many scenarios. In 5.2.0.0 this feature is gone. Please bring it back!

                  • Phrasebook

                    In TRANSLATE mode, the app provides the user excellent TRANSLITERATIONS of the sounds of the foreign word into English letters.

                    Just want that same TRANSLITERATION feature for the PHRASEBOOK, in addition to the "listen to the word" feature

                    Please just copy the TRANSLITERATIONS from the TRANSLATE tab over to the PHRASEBOOK tab, too

                    • Round Trip Translation for Confirmation

                      There is ALWAYS a concern about whether the translation was accurate. Having an option where a third text box automatically provides a translation back into the source language would be very useful. Example: English -> Italian -> English.

                      • Phonetic Translation!

                        I think this concept will beat-out Google and others... Have a checkbox to display a third text frame that will show a phonetic version for the target language. The goal being to help the user (learn how to) say the phrase. It would be best if it showed along with the normal text so the user can correlate the two. There are also potentially two kinds of "phonetic". The primary (initial effort) would be the standards used in dictionaries. The other "seriously cool" version is to use syllables from words in the user's own language. This second approach is "out…

                            • To be able to listen to the source language

                              I liked these new features, its icon, colors and others things, but one of the most important thinks is you could hear the other language.
                              For example, I'm brasilian and when I write an English word, I would like to listen the pronunciation, but now I can't do this.
                              Please, bring back, or show me how do this.

                              • 翻訳した後にコピーした時の確認ダイアログは必要ない

                                原文をテキスト翻訳したあと、それをコピーすると「翻訳がクリップボードにコピーされました。」というダイアログが表示されますが、これは必要ないと思います。それを消すためにOKボタンを押す手間が面倒です。確認表示するなら、ダイアログを使わずに、アプリの画面上のどこかが一番良いと思います。要望としては翻訳した文が表示される右側のテキストボックス上部。改良して欲しいです。

                                    • 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
