The Bing Translator App for Windows is your companion when you need to quickly translate what you are looking at. Use your camera or just type the text you want to translate. Text and camera translation work offline with downloadable language packs, so you can get the power of Bing Translator on-the-go, even when you don't have an Internet connection.
Best on the store currently!
Good translator with many common languages, but there are many areas that need work. First, there seems to be no option to display translations to languages with their own alphabet in a phonetic roman alphabet script, making my "phrase of the day" live tile near useless as I don't already know Japanese. Second, while downloadable translation dictionaries are a plus, many are missing (such as Japanese) and camera translations of text don't work for all languages... such as Japanese. Hey, I'm planning a trip to Japan. That's why I noticed these things. Despite this, the program is still a very clean, easy to use tool for translation. Adding at least the option to show roman letters along with Chinese, Japanese, Korean or Cyrillic would be a big help.. as would greater language support.
It's good dictionary specially its offline mode. but unfortunately it does not support offline mode in Persian to English or reverse of it Please add it Although it does not support offline mode In Persian , it can got 5Star, its good one ;-)
The only reason I downloaded this was to translate Skype conversations - but if I select text and press the share button it doesn't even give me the option to share with Bing Translater. Makes no sense as Skype is owned by Microsoft. Sad that their own apps don't even work right with each other.
This app works better than lot's of dictionary on the market! You'll really Like it!
no hindi offline package. Hindi is the top10 languages of the world then also it isn't there
this is an awesome app in windows-8 and more helpful also in translation
Good look and feel and translates very good. But in the share charm sometimes is not shown as an option. My RSS reader can't have words translated with Bing because it is not shown in share charms.
Precisa melhorar muito
Attractive, simple interface but voice search - after working the first few times - now just gives the error "we can't access the network right now". This would be a great app if it integrated well (e.g. with Office) and reliably did voice translation.

Thanks for updates... keep on..
melhor que o google.
I am going to be learning multiple languages throughout this year and next, this app helps greatly with translation, pronunciation and it it very quick to use. It stored what you have used allowing you to keep track of multiple translations, something A LOT of translators refuse to do. It allows quick swapping, offline translation, image / sound translation and holds an enormous amount of languages. Great translator, the best one I have seen so far
Wow! I just moved from an iPad 3 to a Dell venue pro and discovered This app. Microsoft is really getting better and better!!
Works good with my surface tablet.. camera translator is a bit slow...
It's good enough but it takes 3-4 seconds to translate unlike the google's translator
I have only really used the camera function, but it has worked more than well enough for everything I've needed to translate.
The ui needs some serious attention here. It manages to make what should be a very simple activity quite confusing. Also, the lack of automatic language detection means I'll always have to go to the web anyway as I rarely know the language I want to translate. It would also be great to have this as a share target for text snippets. Could be great but falls short unfortunately.

Ottimo come traduttore, specialmente per il fatto di poter scaricare i pacchetti offline.
In my opinion better translations than Google. Also use it in Lumia 620. It has my seal of approval.
Change is permanent
JE SUIS BIEN CONTENTE CAR J'AI TOUJOURS MÉLANGER 3 LANGUE VOILA...
useless for me
I HAVE A NEW SAMSUNG TABLET....AND THE PHOTO TRANSLATE TELLS ME THAT MY WEB-CAM DOES NOT MEET BING TRANSLATE REQUIREMENTS.....THAT SUCKS !
Ditto, it doesn't seem to work on an Asus Windows 8 tablet. (error message that the camera is not suitable.)
Camera translation does not work, simply says 'please install updates from windows update before using camera translation', but there are no updates available for either the application or my surface. Would not recommend.
Simple et efficace, pas de pub !!
Not so great on my ThinkPad Tablet 2. While I can do text input, it says my camera is not supported. That is the feature I was looking most forward to!
trying to transfer French to English on my pc.
Camera option is blocked out even after enabling it in Options. :( I own a Surface Pro. Would have thought Microsoft would support their own device.
well done Microsoft, this app is really useful in some cases.
"Your camera does not meet the requirments for camera translation." Still cannot use camera translation after update samsung 500t
Need better support for Japanese.
