How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Allow Translate option for Teams' Guests

As a guest on a Team, I would like to have the Translate option available to me when it's turned on for the Tenant. I believe this is a common use-case when a Guest joins a Team in another Tenant where they all speak a different language.

        I don't know why its available for internal users but not guests? Someone would have had to actually write the logic to exclude guests and that makes no sense. Guests could possibly be even more likely to require translation.

        This would be really useful when joining multi-lingual teams as a guest. Currently a guest cannot translate posts, as per internal members.

        This would be a great feature. Also allowing the ability to translate when the message is sent from Skype to Teams would be another good feature.
