  1. The word "Danish" is incorrectly translated into "English"

    The language name for Danish (Dansk) is not recognized as a language-name, and gets translated as well.
    If you replace "Dansk" with "Tysk" (German), the translator does not make this issue.

    The following sentence, translated from Danish to English, defeats the meaning of the original message leading to a misinterpretation of the described problem - which is bad.

    "Sprogcommunity tror et tekstområde i Edge er US-EN, selv om teksten, der vises, er på sproget Dansk"

    Turns into the following:

    Language Community believes a text area in Edge is US-EN, although the text that appears is in the language English (Not…

  4. Issue in French phrasebook

    Languages are not capitalised in French, so "I don't speak French." should be translated as "Je ne parle pas français.", not "Je ne parle pas Français.", and "I speak English." should be translated as "Je parle anglais.", not "Je parle Anglais."
    This issue also exists in the Croatian phrasebook, so you might want to check other languages for it as well.

  5. 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.

  6. On the LISTEN Feature, ADD a REPEAT!

    Let's say that I am listening to several sentences. It would be extremely helpful to be able to HIGHLIGHT a word, phrase or sentence and then be able to listen to that hard part several times.

  7. On the LISTEN icon, ADD a PAUSE button!!

    I am learning (struggling to learn) German. I type in 8-10 sentences in English. Then I LISTEN to the translation over and over. It would be great to have a PAUSE button.

  11. 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!

  17. Some language packs won't download on a particular computer

    On my computer, I am able to download the Chinese language packs, but when I try to do it on my friend's computer, they won't download. I can download the Vietnamese language pack on his, but neither of the Chinese language packs will download. I'm not sure why one downloads but others don't.

  19. Fix Right-Click Context Menu Text Blacked Out

    When using light-mode, the text on the right-click menu (example: copy, paste) is not readable. The text box is solid black, so I cannot see the black text. If I switch to dark-mode, I can see the white lettering. It only started doing this after a recent update.

  20. Fix application language, or add option to choose it

    OS language pack: Polish. Translator interface is in English, which is fine.
    Then I add German keyboard as I need to enter German text from time to time.
    With German keyboard added, Translator interface is in German, which is unwelcomed outcome.
    Either let user choose language, or stop setting app language basing on secondary/tertiary keyboard setup.
