    • Maori Language Pack

      As Maori is an official language of New Zealand and is making a strong revival it is about time Translator included it. Google has a Maori translator. This language is important to our culture and encourage the uptake of will mean the language will stay alive

        • FAVORITE languages

          I use the translator for several languages. Switching between them takes a lot of time - because of a long list of languages.
          Can you, please, introduce "last used" or "most used" languages as first items of the languages list. Or add some "quick" buttons (English-German, Spanish-Italian, etc.), which the user can have as favorites?

          Not a lot of work for you, but a huge time saver for users.

              • kurdish support language

                There are more than 15 million Kurds in the world, but Microsoft does not support Kurdish language in its applications. We would like to state that we are deeply saddened by the Kurds. Please include the Kurdish language in the most recent time.

                        • 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

                                • Che senso ha mettere 10000 caratteri disponibili quando dopo averne fatti non so 1500 NON ESISTE UN SELEZIONA TUTTO???

                                  Possibile che le nuove app siano peggiori di quelle vecchie? Su w8.1 il sistema era quasi perfetto, si poteva copiare tutte e due le lingue o solo una, non c'era se mi ricordo bene nessun limite di caratteri, ma quello che fa rabbia a me personalmente è che sulla traduzione con il tastod estro NON ESISTA SELEZIONA TUTTO!!!! SE PROVO A evidenziare tutto con il mouse si evidenzia solo 10 righe (!!!!!!!) Risultato? Seleziono tutto dall'italiano a sinistra apro google traduttore, copia e incolla e finalmente ho la traduzione INTERA da poter inviare a email o whatsapp o come voglio!!!…

                                      • 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.
