  3. 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.

  6. 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?

  8. multiple screens

    Presentation translator is great if you are displaying using mirrored screens, however it does not display when using presenter view and dual screens. Many presenters use presenter view, and it would be useful to still be able to use presenter view and translator at the same time

  11. Part of translation text is masked by *** in Conversation function

    I feel very convinient about Conversation function in Microsoft Translator Apps.
    But sometimes I have problems when using conversation feature.
    Part of translation text is masked by *** in Conversation feature when translate Japanese to Vietnamese.

    For example, Conversation master posted 肉(It means "meat" in Japanese language) in Microsoft Translator(Windows Store App).
    It become display "***" in participant devices.

    It seems 肉 is NG Word in Conversation feature.
    Other some word become same problems.

  14. 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.
