  1. Select a text and show translation in another little window

    This way I can select the specific text and I can see the translation in another little window.
    It can keep the whole page without any change.

      • Select text -> Right click -> Translate

        Select text -> Right click -> Translate

        Sometimes I don't want to translate the whole page, I just want to see the translation of a word or a sentence.

          • Better translation in all languages

            The translation from any language to English is good. But the translation from any language to my native language Dutch is poor. Probably to same problem for other smaller languages.

            It's not that the words aren't translated, it's just that the sentence is very bad. You can't understand what it means.

                  • Need for Various Translation Display Options

                    The addition of multiple display options for translated pages will increase the convenience for users and accessibility for different languages.

                    First, it would be better if a translated article is allowed to be juxtaposed below its original aritice paragraph by paragraph. The juxtaposition will allow users to figure out the flow of the article with increased clarity.

                    Second, another hopeful impovement to the current version of the MS Translator is about the window for translation.

                    Presently, a translated article is exhibited on the same page in which its original page is shown prior to the translation's appearance. By allowing users…

                    • 不能快速切换原始网页和翻译后的网页

                      将网页翻译后,再显示原始网页,网页会重新加载。这样不仅原始网页和翻译后网页之间的切换很慢,为保存的资料也会丢失。如果能实现无缝快速切换原始网页和翻译后网页会更好。
                      如果 Translator for Edge 能在已加载的网页将需翻译部分文本替换为译文,而非将整个网页替换,这样应该能实现无缝快速切换原始网页和翻译后网页。此外也能实现 Bing Translator 中的 translation with hover original 等功能

                                  • 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.
