    Please add offline translation for Hindi language. :(

    Good and robust. For live tile, genders of nouns should be added. For example door in German should be "die Tür" not "Tür". Similarly, French card should be "la porte", etc.

    App works very well. I love that I can grab a snapshot of some text and read it translated later from my saved photos.

    Very good app but can you add more offline dictionary such as Japanese to English ? I very need that one, thank you
  • by Paul 12/13/2014
    Why do I have to install a third party app in order to copy/paste my translations to a txt or message? Especially when I could use the native WP copy/paste function with Amber & Black, this is a big set back.

    I've given this app 1 Star. You might think that's too harsh. But I really need Tamil language in this!!
