    • 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.

      • pronunciation (Text to speech) is not available for the unknown world which is necessary but it's available for the translated word

        pronunciation (Text to speech) is not available for the unknown world which is necessary to improve pronunciation and listening skills about a new language, but it's available for the translated word in user's language of choice (usually user's mother tongue) which is pointless.

          • 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.

              • 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…

                • 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."

                  • Have a "listen" icon on both ends of the traslation.

                    have a "listen" icon on both ends of the translation. We do not always know how to pronounce what we want to be translated

                    • 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.

                        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... :'(

                          • Falta a pronúncia no idioma de origem, não apenas no idioma traduzido

                            Tão importante quanto a tradução, é ouvir a pronúncia da palavra, frase ou texto que se está traduzindo no idioma de origem e não consegui localizar essa função no app.

                            • Show me the pin yin for Chinese I paste

                              In Microsoft Translator, when I translate from English to Chinese it will show me the Chinese translation and also show me the pin yin pronunciation below. This is fantastic!

                              Now I want to see the pin yin when I translate from Chinese to English.
