  1. Suggest another translation

    It would be nice to be able to suggest another translation instead of just choosing between two that may be wrong.

      • You can't translate Russian XML in Notepad++? Isn't this 2017?

        Wasted too much time already, Cya in the "real" future.

          • It would be nice to isolate a particular word within a sentence that is incorrect, and have a thesaurus search of other closer meanings.

            It would be nice to isolate a particular word within a sentence that is incorrect, and have a thesaurus search of other closer meanings be presented to the user. If you could then pick from those meanings, you could help train the neural network about context. (ie, the difference between "to train" and "a train" in the previous sentence.)

            • Interactive text.

              At one point, Google Translate gave users the option to mouse over text in one box to highlight the equivalent words or word groupings in the other, as well as replace the word used with other definitions or replace it with your own translation. Unfortunately they've ditched this approach in favor of increasingly more nonsensical (for Japanese anyway) translations. This would awesome as a learning tool for the user, and could also help gather more meaningful data (especially for languages like Japanese, which are drastically structurally different from English). Especially if the user could also re-position words or break up…

              • Accuracy percentage.

                In response to earlier feedback asking for a "both are wrong" option you mentioned that "less wrong" was more useful to the ongoing development. I'd like to suggest that you also add the option to include an accuracy percentage rating, or a scale of 1 to 10 for both options. I think this would generate much more useful data than the vague "this one is less wrong" option we have now.

                • We need a button "both translations are wrong".

                  I can't choose better translation if both of them are completely incorrect.

                    Hello and thanks for your feedback.

                    We use this data to measure the overall improvement – as neural models are updated – of these new systems.

                    Week over week this allows us to have a quantitative and objective measure of improvement (or lack of it) of our systems so your feedback is very important even when the feedback ends up representing a “less worse” than a “better” choice.

                    Best regards,

                    Gwenda
                    Microsoft Translator Team

                    .

                        • 2 word expressions don't get picked up.

                          It often translates "teething" to "Kinderkrankheiten" (child illness!) when it should be "zahnen". It can mean both, but in the context of "teething toy" the two-word.expression doesn't seem to be recognized,

                          It also struggles with "quarterly earnings", which the old translator could do well.

                              • Auto-detect persistence

                                It would be nice if the system just stayed in auto-detect instead of defaulting to the new language after auto-detecting for those of us that translate a lot of different languages.

                                  • take the best of each translation

                                    since each translation mechanisem is stronger on some parts and weaker on others, you might allow for results scrambling: translator should recognize parts of the translated sentences and allow the user to take parts from one translation or the other to make up a better translation to be suggested. This way the translator can better learn in a focused way.

                                        • [Russian] Past Tense Gender Verb Endings

                                          In Russian, there are typically three endings for verbs in the past-tense: -л, -ла, and -ли. These are for masculine, feminine, and plural. The translator seems not to be consistent in its assignment of gender to the first person speaker. It works fine saying "He did this" or "She did this" but when you say "I did [insert here]" it seems to be random whether it assigns a female or male ending.
