  3. Give students a way to save live translations from class

    I have students who attend in-person classes. It would be tremendously helpful for me to allow them to save the live translations/transcripts from class directly to their devices for study purposes. As this may not be desired by all faculty, perhaps a checkbox giving us the option to allow the audience to save the transcript would be possible?

  8. Türkçe dilinde mikrofon desteği yok

    Mükemmel bir program. Ancak türkçe olarak mikrofonu desteklemiyor. Bu bir sorun mu? Yoksa bizim tarafta eksik birşey mi var?

  9. How can I get translator to work on text in a table.

    I am required to respond to email in very short time frame, and the answer must be in a template that has a table format, and it must be in Spanish and English.

    When I use translator with Word I can select an entire table and click Translate | Translate Selection.

    However when I copy the same table in an Outlook message, and I select the table the Translate Selection option is greyed out.
