  3. 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.

  7. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.
