    • 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

        • iF I MOVE BACK TO THE UK ....

          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?

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                                    • 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.
