hi, this is my first post so please be gentle. 

i have switched from a S8 to A70. The A70 can capture a screen but does not have the functionality to pin a portion to my screen so i can open another app like google translate. Then I can enter text that requires translating without having to switch back and fourth.  

The app i used in my S8 was EDGE CAPTURE and i have been unsuccessful in locating a similar app.

any suggestions???

Sounds like a feature exclusive to phones with an Edge display. Not sure why you downgraded to a midrange A70 from a premium S8 though. You should have expected that the lower-end device would be less versatile

Woops forgot I was doing it on a computer

Forget the mouse button stuff and just highlight the info and copy and paste

To highlight on your phone hold your finger on the info and then select all and then copy and paste

You can check out an app from the Play Store called Screen Master - I use it all the time as my default app for Screen Shots.

The A70 is a downgrade. Worse screen, worse speakers, worse camera, worse build quality, worse processor... But if you're happy, then that's that.

PS this bigger is better theory ihas been proven incorrect in this case

I don't have an A70 to try but should still work.

Hold down on the left mouse button and drag it over the info you want to translate highlighting it. Let the button up and pick copy and then paste your info into your translate program. Sometimes you are offered to translate without copy and paste.
