  1. Fix how it decides what the page original language is

    Currently it appears to decide the original page language using either meta-tags or by reading some of the top text on the page. This doesn't work well on forums where the page heading is English but the posts are in Spanish (or another language). It decides the page is in English and won't let you override it and tell it to translate from the other language to English. It should either scan the entire page looking for non-default language text or at least let us tell it the original language.

  5. Uniqly stupid idea is the HIP page

    It simply doesn't work at all. It doesn't matter what you've entered it is always wrong. Tried 10 times in a row. So either make it work every single time correctly or just remove it. Any way it just makes translator useless.

  6. You can improve MS Translator for Edge by sorting out the problem that most people are complaining about. See below for further detail.

    "We've detected higher than normal traffic from your computer or network. Please type in the characters you see below to continue translating." At the very least make it clear whether a letter is upper case or lower case.

  8. This Microsoft translator is good. But with a big flaw. After a while, he changes to ask for numbers and letters. And that is a great defect

    Improve elductor. Do not enter at any time and request the numbers and letters you request. Well, it does not stop working well because it interrupts. I hope it gets better.

  9. How about you just let me read the french craft sites and stop giving me a hard time about it?

    I'm tired of the hassle of trying to translate French craft sites. Don't you have anything better to do??? Higher than normal activity??? maybe if Microsoft hadn't blocked their emails in the first place it wouldn't be Higher than normal activity. I don't need your monitoring or your ******** hassles.

    under review  ·  Gwenda responded

    Thank you for posting on the forum.

    The Edge Translator Add-in uses auto-detect as the from language. You can only select the to-language. If a page has several languages then please select the text you’d like to translate and use right-click to translate the text.

    If you still think it should be seen as a different language please copy the text and paste it in https://www.bing.com/translator/.

    Kind regards,
    Gwenda
