  1. Translate text found in images

    When translating a web page, the Edge browser extension should also perform text recognition on images embedded on the page, extract the text, and then submit that to translation as well. That would make pages like this readable: https://www.okayzhihui.com/partner/125/183.html

    I live in Spain and have friends in France, Italy and Portugal.

    But if I move back to the UK I won't need the app. Will that solution satisfy Microsoft?

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  15. Suggestion

    Can make a window style? Instead of replacing the text with the language which want to translator, so that I can compare the two languages.

  16. 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!

  18. 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

  19. translate parts of the screen

    Add a function that allows the user to highlight a part of the screen (while the app is in the background), and then have it translated in the app. It would essentially be the equivalent of the camera-based translation feature except that it would translate a 'picture' of what is on the screen.

  20. 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.
