  1. 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... :'(

  11. Have a default or starting translation key

    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

  20. Show what language was detected when using detect to another language

    Once detected show something that tells which language was detected as its not always obvious (for example Spanish and Portuguese)
