Very high quality

Great app! Works well on and offline. I have used it since Windows 8, I found the Win10 version to be even better. Primarily using it for Arabic translation. Some issues in translation, but they are acceptable because of Arabic's fluidity. Very fast response times and I would say 95% accuracy compared with native speakers. Conjugations of past tense forms don't always match up with correct forms, but some could be attributed to dialects/preference/colloquialism. Overall would definitely recommend for anyone learning a new language or putting together phrases in a different language than their own. Great job Microsoft!

It's pretty good! The camera gets a little buggy, but it was expected. Other than that, it's easy to use and great.

Great app, not perfect but lots of fun and also quite useful. Translations are quite reasonable for everyday expressions; your mileage may vary with very technical or otherwise specialized vocabulary.

Some Key Features Missing or Crippled

Great start but seems unfinished. Camera translation works well often. Translation from English to Chinese needs pinyin to be useful, word of the day live tile does not take you to the word/phrase, you have to manually enter. They added crippled pinyin (transliteration), but can't enter a phrase in pinyin to get Chinese translation. Can't set microphone for oral input.

Fast, accurate and easy to use. Try to avoid strong background noise though.

Helpful multilingual translator. Actually The Chinese - English helps me a lot. The camera text scan needs some improvements. Must have

Very powerful

I constantly use bing Spanish to English and English to Spanish translations on my PC and mobile phone. This works great both online or offline and both for words and phrases. It also helps with character accents used in Spanish and allows copy and paste of the source or translated text.

Decent app (the offline packs are essential when traveling), but needs some streamlining of the UI. Most especially, I want to be able to type in a word, see multiple possible translations, and then with one tap, see a reverse translation, to confirm that I've really selected the appropriate word.

Does the design team quit or something?!

[Excuse my bad English] Good app for quick translation, works fine and smoothly on my PC, i didn't notice any bugs or functionality issues. Design is awful, actually this isn't even a design, and a lot of users who tried the beta version said so, and i just hoped that this will change in the final version .. but nothing. PLZ, PLZ, PLZ, again, add some REAL design and colors.
