Android Translator no longer working in China
1
Hello,

Thanks so much for this wonderful translator tool!

I am located in China, and I understand Google is blocked here. I have been using Translator on Android for years without a proxy at all.

But recently Translator can not work at all directly without a proxy software such as VPN. I have enabled proxy on Android, and other programs such as YouTube and Twitter can work behind the proxy. So the proxy should be working. The app (Translator) can translate what I said without any issues, but the phonetic can not display when I typing a word. For example, I type word lake, the phonetic /leik/ can not display as before. When I press the word lake, I have to wait a few seconds to hear the sound pronunciation too. It is very inconvenient now.

Again, my problem is that when I type a word for translation, the phonetic can not display, and I have to wait for a few seconds to hear the sound pronunciation.  I understand this should be something with the network connection. Maybe Google or GFW did some change recently. Anyone know how to resolve this problem?

Thanks so much!

Correct;
This is a clear connection issue; Nothing to do with translate

Hi Moshe,

Thank you for your reply!

Is there an alternative way to fix this issue? I really want to keep Google translator as other ones are not that good as Google translator.

Thanks!
