  1. 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.

        • Windows 10 Mobile update

          Release the Translator app update also for ARM devices like Windows 10 Mobile (although as operating system is on the way to decline).

          Thank you

            • voice playback in both languages

              example: I'm Chinese like to learn English, translate English to Chinese, but the voice playback just for Chinese! this is Not reasonable! because I'm Chinese of cause i know how to pronounce in Chinese! important for me is the English pronunciation, is this make sense Microsoft?

                  • How can I force Microsoft Translator to work offline?

                    Locking down Translator in firewall rules doesn't work. Just produces an error. Physically disabling the internet port then allows it to run offline. I just want the tool to run offline, while allowing other tools to work online with out having to visualize it.

                      • Provide articles for single words

                        Supply word articles which shows different translations, meanings and different forms (e.g. Past, Perfect) such as Abby Lingvo has.
                        Also within a text translation several word translations should be offered

                          Have a bottom to set the default setting - example detect > English. Currently if I get into translation and have to change languages I have to reset this up every time if I do not know the origin language
