      Downloading a language pack should not take longer than a minute or two.

      Take the following steps to resolve this issue:

      - Cancel the current download of languages
      - Make sure your device is not in battery saving mode and that you are on a Wi-Fi connection
      - Reboot your device
      - Download the language again.

        Thanks for posting on the Microsoft Translator forum.

        The app itself does not have an option to shut the sound off. However in the audio settings for your device, you will probably have 3 or 4 different sliders for the volume and one of them should affect the shutter sound.

          Camera translations can translate photos but not screenshots

          AdminGwenda (Admin, Microsoft Translator) commented  · 

          suggest support PNG pictures in camera mode.

          since the default screenshot​ format is png

            Translations on WeChat are indeed limited.

            You can translate a message that is in a different language to you device language.

            The other way around it does not work. You cannot share a message you have translated directly to WeChat as it will give you an error message.

            The workaround is to select the text and use copy and paste.

            Best regards, Gwenda, Microsoft Translator Team

              provide gender of the translated words

              AdminGwenda (Admin, Microsoft Translator) commented  · 

              Peace: May I ask whether you update the version can be improved, to increase some of the personal use of text storage dictionary features, to facilitate the voice input function, the display is the use of personal text, such as: some names, some professional nouns, some less familiar with the text, can be used in the personal use of text storage dictionary, after the voice input allows to apply their own text storage dictionary, so that is not the voice input is not the correct text of our request, thank you for your understanding and reference to improve

              AdminGwenda (Admin, Microsoft Translator) commented  · 

              Please make the offline dictionaries available offline so I can see more translations for every word

              AdminGwenda (Admin, Microsoft Translator) commented  · 

              The app has no syntax protocals. It also offers only one translation of a word. A dictionary might have 6 meanings for one word. The Yucatec Maya is unforgiving with spelling. Most Mayas cannot write it. Therefore, it is hard to search a word when you are not sure of accents or long vowels...

                    I have a suggestion for a better experience with Microsoft translation app for iOS. To copy a text today there are at least 2 press on the screen. Share button and copy. Or mark the text and copy. I like a way to long press the text and the app copy everything. Short press is for mark some words and then copy.

                    So my suggestion is long press over the translated text for copy everything. This means the user could work faster and the experience will be better.

                    AdminGwenda (Admin, Microsoft Translator) commented  · 

                    about not being able to copy and
                    paste the translated text. After some experimentation I discovered that
                    the text is indeed copied however the app doesn't tell you or give any
                    clues that anything had happened. I discovered that the text is indeed
                    copied by going into another app and pressing on the screen and I got a
                    prompt to paste. When I selected paste the translated text was shown.
                    Perhaps on future versions you can add something that lets you know that
                    the text is copied.

                    Hi, I see you haven't received a response yet and apologize for that. Please explain a little bit more about the issue you are having? If I need to translate a text in a Word document I select the text and right-click. I can then select Translate from the list that appears.

                        Allow users to change the camera translations from white text on black background to black text on white background.

                          This way you'll find your pinned translations and your translation history when you open the app on another device.

                          From user comments such as:
                          - Pinned translations should be backup either by Google or Microsoft account. It's very difficult when you reinstall the app and there is no pinned translations.

                          - I translate on my iPhone and I wish I had access to these translations on my iPad. My suggestion is that you allow users to tie their Microsoft Account to the Translator app.

                          - backup pinned translations

                              In translator popup there is no speaker icon next to word to be translated,
                              there is only speaker icon for translated word. Why you don't allow users
                              to hear translate from word? If I translate from English to my native
                              Polish, I would like to hear pronunciation of an English word I don't know
                              and thus need to look up. I think it is quite natural. Google translate got
                              it really well (not trying to offend but rather to prove my point)

                                    Microsoft Translator on Android and Android Wear now supports transliteration for Chinese (Simplified), which means you can get Pinyin characters for Mandarin translations. Please download the latest version and try it out.

                                          To be able to save the translations you have made by using camera translations with your Android device.

                                          Why pictures translation text cannot be copied. And why not voice broadcast?

                                          Would like to see some improvements with picture translations. The ability to copy translated pictures and to have voice after translating picture.

                                            1) Will you enable Sort and Search capabilities on History? It would facilitate users to find their saved translation much easier;
