  2. In China Translation of pages is a must. The antispam caption input requirement

    It's maddening! The idea is... remove it. Really what spam threat am I posing translating pages I'm reading?

    If there is a logic explained to me for it, then I'll live with it. But the logic eludes me.

  7. Please add the ' Cancel text translation' option.

    After I select a sentence and press ' Text Translation ' I can translate the sentence. However, there is no option to cancel the translation. Please add the ' Cancel text ' option.

  8. Allow choosing the language to translate from.

    Allow choosing the language from which to translate.

  13. popup translate

    please check this chrome extention:TransOver. as an esl learner transover'S translate method is absolutly benefiticial.
    i like to read the text in English language. but people like me often struggle with word's meaning.

    instead disturbing the reading process with looking at the extentional dictionary program or website, I feel really comfortable with instant popup on text. so that I can keep going to read without any disturbing concentration things. I am insist about that you should add transover's concept in to the translator for edge.

  17. Translate text found in images

    When translating a web page, the Edge browser extension should also perform text recognition on images embedded on the page, extract the text, and then submit that to translation as well. That would make pages like this readable: https://www.okayzhihui.com/partner/125/183.html

  19. iF I MOVE BACK TO THE UK ....

    I live in Spain and have friends in France, Italy and Portugal.

    But if I move back to the UK I won't need the app. Will that solution satisfy Microsoft?
