Excellent Translator App

Best on the store currently!


Decker

Very handy with a few kinks

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.


elyas

no offline in Persian..

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 ;-)


Thomas

Select and Share Does Not Work With Skype

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.


Hefeng

Excellent!! I use it as an universal dictionary.

This app works better than lot's of dictionary on the market! You'll really Like it!


Apoorva Raj

Very less offline packages

no hindi offline package. Hindi is the top10 languages of the world then also it isn't there


vishal

Bing translator

this is an awesome app in windows-8 and more helpful also in translation


Vitor

Needs improvements

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


Tom

Voice search doesn't work

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.


Paul

Simple and easy

Choose languages Choose input type Input required message Job done


Shahab

Good app

Thanks for updates... keep on..


Edigezyr

ótimo

melhor que o google.


Maestro

Great app

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


Jean-Michel

Excellent

Wow! I just moved from an iPad 3 to a Dell venue pro and discovered This app. Microsoft is really getting better and better!!


Naeem

Very good app

Excellent app


John

Pretty impressive

Works good with my surface tablet.. camera translator is a bit slow...


Constantinos

Good but slow

It's good enough but it takes 3-4 seconds to translate unlike the google's translator


Benedict

Amazing!

I have only really used the camera function, but it has worked more than well enough for everything I've needed to translate.


Martin

Weird ui and no auto language detection

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.

Molto buona

Ottimo come traduttore, specialmente per il fatto di poter scaricare i pacchetti offline.

PHOTO TRANSLATE

I HAVE A NEW SAMSUNG TABLET....AND THE PHOTO TRANSLATE TELLS ME THAT MY WEB-CAM DOES NOT MEET BING TRANSLATE REQUIREMENTS.....THAT SUCKS !


Matthew

Matthew

Ditto, it doesn't seem to work on an Asus Windows 8 tablet. (error message that the camera is not suitable.)


Rory

Would not recommend

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.


Jean-Sebastien

Très pratique !

Simple et efficace, pas de pub !!


John Paul

Great on Windows Phone but...

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!


terri

language translation

trying to transfer French to English on my pc.


Brad

Camera doesn't work

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.


Ariyan

Great App

well done Microsoft, this app is really useful in some cases.


jeffrey

good...but...

"Your camera does not meet the requirments for camera translation." Still cannot use camera translation after update samsung 500t


Bernie

Improved support for Japanese

Need better support for Japanese.
