  4. Ensure there is a disable feature on top as the paranoia protect feature is simply absolutely foolish. Has no one vetted this????

    "We've detected higher than normal traffic from your computer or network. Please type in the characters you see below to continue translating." continues to interfer with the ability to simply view pages. Exactly what form of security threat is imagined when viewers simply translate pages as offered by the tool? Absolutely pointless, disturbing, and foolish. Microsoft??

  7. 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.

  12. Stop harassing translate users

    I live in South Korea but English is my native language. So I use Edge's translate capability to view Korean websites. However, after a couple minutes, you shut down my access with "We've detected higher than normal traffic...." Stop doing that and let me use the service as it was intended! This is why people hate edge and internet explorer. I'm giving edge a chance, but will gladly switch back to Firefox and never use your browser again.

  20. 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.
