Listen to Translations
The Dictionary includes the speech functionality. This feature is currently available for 30 languages .
Click the Speaker icon to turn on the voice.
You can listen to the pronunciation of the original word and its translations.
In the Advanced Options you can choose which TTS service to use: ImTranslator TTS or an alternative TTS service.
Next to each dictionary translation, there is a set of reverse translations back to the original language. Clicking on the reserve translation word will change the original word and show its own set of translations with corresponding reverse translations.
There may be cases when the language detection tool doesn't identify the language of a source word correctly. This may happen to the words of the same language group (Slavic languages), or to the loan-words.
If you know the language of a word, select the known language (i.e. Russian) and lock it by checking the "Lock-in language" checkbox. This will disable the auto language detection and secure the chosen language.
Translation History keeps track of all your translation activity and stores translation records in the Translation History.
To add records to the translation history, you need to "Enable Translation history" either in the Translation History panel or in the corresponding application panel.
After you enabled the Translation History, all of the translations will be recorded and stored along with the source text.
