phonetic transliteration
When I'm translating from english to russian, there is a russian translitiration. What for do I need it? It should be english phonetic translitiration. And it shows the opposite. Completely useless feature :( Other stuff is pretty good!

The speed of the translation is too fast. I hope to be able to set the function to adjust the speed of speech.

Excellent instant translation tool
Of all the tools I have used for translation the quality of Mate is unbeatable, much better than other tools available. In most cases the translations can be used practically without retouching. Great help, well worth it.
