Agreed David, noting that the Translate feature still fails for all languages when the Subject text = target translation language selected in the dropdown menu, but the body text still needs translating.
The Translation script needs to check the body text as well as the subject before stopping. Until recently an error message appeared when the script stopped prematurely due to the subject being in English (or very close to English).
Now nothing happens when you click Translate and Subject language = target translation language.
I often find it quicker and easier to just copy and paste the text into Google Translate.
