- Can translated text be copied?
- Yes, from Ver. 1.0.2. Hold your finger on the translation output to select the text to be copied.
- There is something wrong with the translation result.
- This service is provided on the assumption that conversational phrases such as "How much is it to Tokyo by taxi?" or "Where are the check-in counters?" are translated one sentence at a time. The application cannot process short and long phrases that do not constitute a word or a sentence, nor does it accept local dialects.
- What does "This is the meaning that others will hear" mean?
- When translating from English to Japanese, for example, the English text displayed in the "This is the meaning that others will hear" section is the back-translation of the Japanese which resulted from the translation of your spoken phrase (this is called reverse translation). The purpose of this is to allow you to compare the translation with your original input. If the reverse translation result is different to what you had intended to say, please rephrase the sentence and try again.
