  1. The Translator for Edge developers should commit suicide

    There is no good reason why the browser should stop me from translating websites I need to read. Yes its high traffic because I'm doing a lot of work. Get out of my way or slit your wrists you incompetent morons

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  6. 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
    Microsoft Translator Team

  20. no aparece la opcion de traducir en windows 10 1903

    Al actualizar a Windows 10 (1903) en Microsoft Edge el traductor no aparece al darle clic derecho sobre el texto a traducir, ni en la barra de direcciones para traducir toda la pagina, ya he activado el plugin y nada. Lo desinstale y volví a descargarlo, continua igual no aparece. En la pestaña de extensiones aparece activo, pero no se puede usar.
