  2. Stuck on English. Can't change source language.

    https://github.com/notepad-plus-plus/notepad-plus-plus/commit/f4460075e6fe6400a7d595fa82bab54693d01929

    If select a bit of russian text. then translation does not happen.
    If choose translator icon in address bar and try to change source language to Russian. The Source language is stuck on English, and the Desitnation language is changeable, but in this instance it should be the other way round, because the extension has incorrectly identified the source language.

  6. Translate image should be an option when right clicking on an image in a web page

    When selecting text in Edge and right clicking, Translate text is added to the context menu. When right clicking on an image, Translate image should be added to the menu and trigger the image translation feature like that in the Microsoft Translator apps.

  14. Allow choosing the language to translate from.

    Allow choosing the language from which to translate.

    Currently, if the wrong language is detected, cannot translate the page.

  15. show original text when click on translated text, like using on iPad

    when surfing Internet by using Microsoft translator on iPad, I find it's so convenient that I can click on the translated text to see the original text. however, I can‘t do that on Edge, what a pity!

  16. 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.

  20. Deliver an undo functionality

    For me it's very important to look up for a few or specific words. Using the app the original word is exchanged by the translation but I can't undo it. That means there is no possibility to take a view on the original text. It's a wild mix of the two languages selected for translation
