        • 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.

                        • Text to speech should have a reading speed adjustment

                          Just did some English<-->French testing. The French text-to-speech was stilted/choppy and the speed made it very difficult to follow. There should be a speaking speed adjustment right on the main window so the user can easily select a comfortable speed using the current translation as a sample over and over.

                              • 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。

                                          Enable sync of win10 pc app history | pinned items with win10 mobile app favorite items. I realize the latter is not the mainstream android and ios targets but there are those of us still using win10 mobile with no desire to change.
