Translator Dictionary API returns wrong result for 吗

Basti 1 Reputation point

When I am using the Translator 3.0 Dictionary API, I will get a wrong result for 吗. I am translating from Chinese to English. The result should be "what" or "question particle for "yes-no" questions". However it returns "you". Is there anything I can do about it? "you" as a translation for 吗 does not make any sense at all. When using the Bing Dictionary, the result is correct:

    Hi @Basti

    I am using Chinese simplified translation from Chinese to French, From Chinese to English the definition is not the same. Try using Chinese translation, to French then you can switch it up to English. This is a Quick fix for now. From a formal language to another results are not constant. You can also try to update your language packs. There is two place where you can do this, in your main computer settings and language packs, and inside 365 suite.

    You can also get new language packs, and this will probably help you.

    I hope this help.
