  8. Translate Entire PPT Presentation

    Is the Microsoft Translator able to translate all slides at once and keep the formatting of the slides? If not, can this be on the roadmap for enhancement?

  16. Türkçe dilinde mikrofon desteği yok

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

  19. Fix Japanese to English Translation

    I have been using English to Japanese and Japanese to English subtitles during presentations and the translation is very poor with not even 10% accuracy of what is being spoken.

    Especially from Japanese to English translation, you see a lot of profane words and unrelated content which is not even remotely connected to what is being spoken about.

    This needs fixing ASAP. Same for Traditional Chinese.
