    I'm about to go on a very long trip in China and I'd like to have an offline Chinese-English translation app: Bing Translate works fine while I'm connected, but when I try to donwload a language pack - every language pack - it always says:
    Impossibile connettersi. Attualmente non possibile eseguire il download. Riprova pi tardi.

    Which is the italian for:
    It is impossibile to establish a connection. Can't download new, try again later.
    I'm using a Nokia Lumia 800 updated to Windows Phone 7.8
    Is there a way to manually download a language pack? Are there any others alternative apps for offline translating?

    Probably not. It connects to the server for that.

    Microsoft has a Translator app, which can translate some languages offline if you download the languages. Languages include: simplified Chinese, German, Italian, French, Spanish and Portuguese. The offline translation works for text input and images, but not for voice input.

    Check out "Translator" for Windows Phone http://windowsphone.com/s?appid=2cb7...4-00237de2db9e

    Edit: I corrected the link to the store.

    That's the app I'm trying to get to work right now. I know his name is "Translator", but Bing is written in the app logo so I guessed the complete name was Bing Translator.
    Anyway, I'm talking about Translator

    Ah, sorry. I thought you were using the built in Bing vision translate which needs internet.

    I had trouble downloading language packs: for some strange reason, I couldn't download when battery saver was on. So I started downloading languages when my phone was charging. Im using a lumia 800 on WP 7.8 too.

    IT WORKS!
    I just disabled battery saver and tried once again: I'm now finally downloading Chinese-English offline dictionary.
    Thanks a lot mpt15
