This app is handy for short translations. I use it quite frequently for Swedish French Spanish and the Czech Language. My only real complaint is when I'm trying to verify something in those languages it doesn't convert to English; it just repeats in the same spellings of those languages.

Must pay to use certain features
by Jetty2003 on 2021/10/15 07:27
I got this app for the camera feature since I couldn't just google translate. I opened the app and it already hit me at a paywall, the X button was hidden so it took me a good min to close it. After doing that I clicked on the camera option to learn that it was hidden behind a paywall. Don’t advertise a camera feature if you have to pay for it since that's is a scummy thing to do

If your app requires you to pay in order to use it, it is not a free app with in-app purchases. It’s a paid app advertising itself as free.

No Free Version Anymore
by LynOnNorthCoast on 2021/10/11 17:56
I’ve used the “free” version of the app for a number of years. Today, I tried to use it to translate one word, and up pops a page which I cannot override that insists I buy it at a monthly fee, or try their paid version on a subscription basis (after a free week). No thanks. I’m done. I honestly didn’t mind the ads, and sometimes clicked on good offers. But if I’m looking at ads, it’s NOT “free.”

by Yozgoat on 2021/10/09 22:55
I have spoken to many friends using various languages on this app and usually when using translation online or on other apps a lot of times the person im talking to doesn’t understand some words but on this app I haven’t had that issue once. I see people saying it’s a scam, how? It gives you the option to pay for the full version of the app but if you don’t want to you can simply click the X button on the too right and enjoy the free version which does pretty much anything you need to begin with. I rarely write reviews on applications but I give credit when it’s due and especially for this app because I have family and friends all around the world. Thank you for creating this app!

Great Specific Country
by Monalisa911 on 2021/10/09 18:28
I wanted an Arabic translator to give me a specific country dialect. This app does that..I love that you can hear how a word u it S pronounced. I do wish the voice could be chosen male or female. UPDATE: received a nice message from developers explaining that I actually can choose the voice AND slow down/speed up speech! Elated that it has UAE specific translation! I’m learning the language but by bit with this app help!

poor, indisclosed data ethics
by Boll Weevill on 2021/10/06 12:21
So for some reason my last iTranslate review has been deleted; so in response to itranslate’s response to me wrt data integrity… here is what i can monitor when using this app to translate one word, “hello” from english to Korean; there are 26 instances of data sent to facebook dot com; 3 instances sent to adjust dot com, and 3 sent to measurement dot. All are 3rd party data collectors, and NOT in control nor permision by the user (me). So i repeat my review comment, that this developer is not maintaining good data ethics by disclosing what data and potentially private info is being exchanged to the likes of facebook, a known abuser. (ref eff dot org to learn about these 3rd party practices) —- i really like this app, except for the 3rd party data sharing without my permission. especially to facebook to whom i want nothing sent.

Very good app. Even though I speak Spanish, which is always the one I translate, I have found that it sometimes has trouble with Caribbean Spanish. It works great with European Spanish which is the proper " book'" Spanish. If they expand their data base to include Caribbean dialect, it would be unbeatable.
So helpful

This app saved my husband and I much grief. After sustaining damage to our vacation home in Mexico we spent several months with local workers and at the local Home Depot. My husband would type in to the app what he wanted to convey and then show it to the Mexicans. They would say "Oh, OK!" and then all of us would laugh. Progress!

by PWFTKING on 2020/07/11 17:23
I don’t speak Spanish at all but met a Latino guy who needed help taking some classes at the community college I work at. We only used the free part and within two minutes of us opening it we were communicating, not just talking. We were able to ask each other any questions we had and give detailed answers. Think about that...this app allowed me, an English speaker to help a Spanish speaking man come up with a plan to get him an education and improve his life. The look on his face as it became clear that this app worked and he wasn’t going to have to struggle to find the words to say what he wanted and try to understand the answers he was getting...within a few minutes!!!! This man came in knowing it was going to be difficult to get the info he needed but he didn’t care because an education was that important to him. He left and his feet barely touched the ground because this app put the American Dream within his reach and as an American who was able to help him take the first steps towards that I couldn’t be more proud!!!! So in case you are wondering I give this app ten million stars👌🌈🌈🌈.
Scam, forces you into a subscription
by [N7]NobodyCats on 2020/11/27 17:17
If you don’t believe me download it, you can’t use anything but the bare minimum of translating by typing it in manually, If you want to use a translator app just use google translate app completely free and has a camera translator function, you have to pay actual money to even use the camera function on this app, heck you can’t do anything but the bare minimum with this the rest of the stuff they force you to do a monthly subscription or do the free trial, that also forces you into a subscription. When you try to use anything but the minimum it brings up a window telling you to pay a 5.99 monthly fee, or do the 7 day free trial with a subscription. It’ll forcefully subscribe you if you do the free trial. But regardless paying for this is pointless when google translate app is completely free and has the camera function. This is just a scam to get as much money as possible which is why they have a subscription system so they can keep taking in money instead of a one time purchase. Basically unless you like spending or losing money for an app you likely won’t use more than 1-2x a month don’t get it. Besides with how accessible the internet and what not is, why would you bother paying for something like this that is literally free everywhere. Anything that has access to the web can be used to get to a translator website. Now try imagine paying $50-$75 a month or year for this?
So easy to use!
by rolling_adventures on 2018/12/17 00:12
I love iTranslate and use it frequently! My sister-in-law is Italian and I am American. She speaks and writes in English without issue, but most of her family and friends back home don't speak or write in English or feel more comfortable in Italian. iTranslate helps me understand Facebook comments about my sister-in-law or niece that I would otherwise be unable to read/translate (my Italian isn't that advanced). It also allows me to look at foreign websites and translate from the source language into English. My parents enjoy international travel and like to stay in small bed and breakfast type places instead of large multi-national hotel chains. Often these small B&B's website doesn't have an English version, so iTranslate comes to the rescue! I usually know what language I am translating from, but from time to time I will want to translate a tweet or FB comment that is written in a language I don't recognize. When that happens, it definitely comes in handy that iTranslate has the "Detect Language" function and can automatically translate it to English or another language of your choosing. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND using iTranslate!
I half accidentally paid for this app
by kat8478493 on 2021/04/11 01:03
Truly I wanted to forget to cancel it because I I really want to learn Spanish and other languages. Omg. Just now I’ve finally let go of the guilt of spending the money, plus so much has been happening lately, stopping to learn anything new has been a luxury. So I just now checked out the features of this app. Omg. Lol. It’s pretty much amazing. I just found one feature where I can speak to my phone in English, and then press play it will translate to whomever in idk, 30 languages? Not sure how many the speaking feature covers. Taking pictures of objects, besides it being useful to learn new languages is honestly just really fun, to see how well it can guess what’s in the picture from the limited area of space you’ve given it. Now that I’ve reallly looked, I’m thinking I might pay for it again when the year runs out. I have not checked with native Spanish speakers or anyone else to verify the translations are perfectly accurate. I will do that. But so far this thing is amazing. I’ve been sitting here at the gas station not getting gas for an hour playing with it.
LOVED this app initially & would have paid for it, BUT...
by GoodStuffHappens on 2018/05/30 13:59
Initially this app would have gotten 5 stars. It beat google translate and a tu ally did a decent job translating English to German & vise versa; especially for a free app. But of late the app consistently crashes immediately after is finishes the cycle of translation; and before I have time to even verify it’s accuracy so not sure if it’s still as correct as it used to be I read in a some reviews that it isn’t anymore; i.e. Korean for example, but I wouldn’t know since it keeps crashing. Wrote to Support and will see what happens. Also asked me to upgrade which I strongly considered but not with some of the small print in permissions. Beware that it requires access to any past translations as well & beware that anything you type it paste into it to translate will be accessed by this app; so you might wish to leave out financial or sensitive Information, etc.; like if you’re translating a contract. Also, the premium (paid) version price tag seems rather steep to a lot of the reviewers here as well as to me the way it is organized now. I’d say it’s a bit of “carrot” app; “Lookie what I got here! Okay now come and get it!” ...Once you start chasing it, it eludes you. ... If they make improvements and adjustments, I’ll alter my review, but for I’ll say, sadly, I’d pass!
A Very Good Language Tool
by Rocky33Now on 2021/09/10 21:09
I use this app a great deal, at least once a week, most the time way more. With social media I find people from all over the world posting content from other countries. People from other countries sending messages in their native language. I come across something written in another language I’m not familiar with. This app helps me a lot, without spending so much time trying to learn the languages. This app helps me figure things out quickly, and move on. I’ve actually written long letters in French to some people. They seem to understand what I’m wiring. No one ever tells me I miss spelled anything. And no one ever tells me I used the wrong word, or said something wrong. I don’t even know what I’m doing. Then when the people write me back, this app helps me figure out what they wrote me. This app translates every word I want to say, or read. I copy paste away in both directions; depending on whether I want to compose, or read in another language. It takes a little thinking sometimes, this app does most the work. Try this app out to close the communication gap with different languages.
Fantastic
by samueljlor on 2018/12/25 19:17
I do not understand all of the negative reviews. Translating any language perfectly requires near mastery of the language so take the time to learn whichever one or more languages you choose. In the meantime I challenge you to find a better app than this one. I have used it throughout Europe and it has been invaluable well beyond the $40 I spent to upgrade to the pro version. Translating restaurant menus was worth that price alone. The app continues to evolve and improve. Tens of thousands of people are using the app. I don't find the responses to complaints caustic but merely informative. Don't let the negative reviews prevent a purchase that can be very valuable. And if you want to use a free trial it may make sense to have a need for the program during that time period to fully test it. And no I do not work for the company, only a happy customer that is realistic and understands limitations of any language program. I think translating "get a life" from English to any language might miss the intended meaning.
I can’t even 🤦🏾‍♀️🤯
by Katybaggs on 2017/12/30 22:57
Ok, look /listen...When I first got this app I thought it would be amazing and such a big help, and the possibility using it on my Apple Watch was a bonus; I was really looking forward to paying for it after my trial, buuut then I started getting wrong translations all over the place. I want to know who is providing the translations for these words...cause this is nonsense. I’m learning Korean and it kind of defeats the purpose of having a translator app, that provides the WRONG translations a lot of the time; I stopped using google translate for that same reason. I get tired of having to look up the word online just to get the correct meaning, it’s frustrating. When I look up words in the translator I am not typing in American letters, I am typing in 한글 (Hangul), just to make sure that I get the correct translation. I have even provided the corrected translations for some of the words I have looked up through the app, and surprise, surprise they are STILL wrong and haven’t been corrected; why have “wrong?” A feature in the app if you are not going to take advantage of it, and correct what is effectively wrong...SMH. Either way my money will stay in my pocket when it comes to even thinking about purchasing this app 🙅🏾‍♀️. Move on there’s nothing to see here.
Very Good App.
by RJ2544 on 2021/03/11 01:11
I’ve used this app quite a lot now, maybe a little expensive, but it’s worth the price to me. I just pay monthly so I can stop when I don’t need it. I translate French which I’m learning (very slowly) and Filipino called Tagalog which only translates in written form not speaking sounds. I give it 5 stars ‘cause it’s worth it to me. Maybe it’s not perfect, but it’s one heck of a lot better than nothing. I’m not sure, but I would say it’s probably the best translator available. I’ve used a couple of others a long time ago and they were not near this good. Most people who give this one a low star rating are probably low star themselves! I talked to a woman over 20 years ago that was working on this very thing, well, machine translation at the University of Illinois. I think it’s very difficult so many variables.
It will help you get by...
by Alupinya on 2020/02/05 12:40
Please note, I’m asking a lot from it. American living in Germany and using it in/for a German language course. My wife is German and also a English and German teacher. It’s been pointed out on more than one occasion “that doesn’t mean (xyz) at all...” when using or quoting this app. If you’re using it just to get around for a vacation, sure. Plus (at least in Germany) they’re very polite and (almost) everyone speaks English so they won’t point out this app has missed the mark. If you just want to find a the bathroom or get food and a beer, I’ve used a free app that is a lot better for communicating. (if this is now free absolutely download it, but if not...). Remember I need to know “Wie spät ist es?”- is not - “what time is it” (the app translation) but what it truly says which is “How late is it?” so... For when you’re listening to someone speak or building sentences on your own later you’ll think wie means “what” and spät means time (what/was - time/zeit). It’s not always wrong, but it’s not always 100% right for everyday/conversational usage. If you do download, remember wie may not be what.
Used to be a great Application...
by Ericathebeast on 2018/07/04 21:56
It’s so sad to see how this app has gone downhill when it used to be fantastic. They now charge an exorbitant amount comparatively (4.99 per month), and compared to other services it’s just not worth it. Not only that, but “updates” have mislead many subscribers to sign up for a paid account, when it looks like a normal update, I’m surprised Apple hasn’t put a stop to that? Also, many mistakes in translations can be found, and if you read replies from other users, you will see that this company either expects its users to find and fix its own software issues, and/or rudely denies complaints, and calls people liars. Also, adds that used to be silent banners are now frequent, loud and disruptive; especially when you are trying to concentrate on translating. Also, now that I’ve read how poorly this company has been treating other people with critiques is honestly shocking! I’m not sure if this app is under new ownership or management, but it’s not something I want to rely on with all the incorrect translations, newly added loud commercials and combative and disrespectful treatment of subscribers. After having this app for years, I’m now of to find something better. Too bad.
Conflicted Feelings
by Peytonhk47 on 2018/01/04 03:59
I would like to start this review by saying that the idea is really great. I would totally subscribe for the verb conjugations and the layout is very clean. However I noticed another review noting that the Korean translations are incorrect, something I also noticed when using the app. 갈게 does not translate to “LL” at all. 徒然 didn’t even have a translation and was just romanized in English to “Tozenn” which is an incorrect romanization... Although I do see the option to input correct translations if they are wrong and I am not a developer, I feel that if you are trying to get people to use this as a translating app, you might want to hold off on some languages until they are fully developed and correct. As for the people who are saying iTranslate “automatically charges” and that the developer is accusing users of lying, I understand where you come from. But most apps do the same thing, advertising a free trial. They will charge you after the free trial, which I think is wrong and should be verified with the user before they assume you bought the PRO version, but you can always say you do not want to start a free trial. It’s a good idea to read everything before you just click next.
Never got to use it
by Phoenix1887 on 2018/06/08 16:17
I really dislike apps that puts such a huge wall around their features they want you to pay before you get to use them. They make it seem like they are such gold you can’t even taste without paying. People don’t pay until they’re hooked they need to get you hooked on it first. And this apps’ metric for measuring use in order to get you hooked is very weakly implemented. I signed up for the free trial when I downloaded the app so that I could use the features but I did not need them at the time so I never used the app until the trial expired. So in the end I never even tried it one time. That is a really dumb trial. The app needs to measure the use of the app and give you a trial based on actual use not some finite amount of time. Especially when translation is something you use when you need it not just on demand when the app tells you to use it. You don’t have something to translate until you have something you need translated! Bad design when it comes to trial. Focus more on user experience. Sadly I can’t even use the app so what can I do? Uninstall
Not free, planned obsolescence
by bordyafromthestern on 2020/11/05 20:18
You cannot use the app unless you subscribe, and get 7 days before you get charged. After reading the reviews & more importantly the responses from the developer, it is obvious that there is not much in the way of quality control, as in every response I read, the developer blames the user or device for the problem. This is no doubt possible, it is highly unlikely that it is every cause, not to mention the bait & switch of being a free download, but not a free app, I suspect a lot of the reviews are fake, & the app is crap because the problems people have are the same issues, & the developer always blames the user. That is seems to sink of planned obsolescence. Developers respond with a cut & paste of, “The free version is free & the pro version is paid”...this is completely true. So I will revise, there are no available translation features in the free version, you have to pay for that. In the free version, the only feature is seeing what you may be able to translate if you pay, just hope it is correct/works. DO NOT BOTHER
100% positive feedback!
by BC0092 on 2021/06/12 20:54
Wow. I have yet to try all of the features. It isn’t that the features are not beneficial... I am currently working to increase screen time (yes, increase). I didn’t like translation apps because of the undesired results. I guess this would be something I’ll just state vaguely because I’d rather be doing something else but I encourage anyone interested in translation apps to try this one and buy the pro in-app version. That will make all of the apps in the bundle available with pro features. The user interface is simple, elegant and easy to use. The experience started out being very satisfied and continues to fuel the thirst for knowledge and provide the perfect amount of pleasure to be very ally with the product and want even more. I just found more so I’m going back in to nerdify my life. More is more.
Started to Download it
by Einsteinetts on 2017/11/12 07:03
I was going to download this app bc we were spending a month in Europe, but after reading the reviews, Didn’t download. The reason wasn’t mainly bc so many people were unhappy about too many & too loud of ads (altho that was a small part of he reason). The main reason was the defensive, rude responses the people who gave reviews got from the developers! I am appalled that they would be called liars. Developers: Why on earth do you think so many people would say the same thing? Why do you think they would make that up? Do you think you are endearing yourselves to customers (where you get your $ from) by being so caustic? I will tell you I believe your customers, not you. And so will virtually every body else. And I also noticed that absolutely nothing is a glitch in YOUR program. It’s all the customer’s problem., or someone else’s ‘fault.’ Wow! Smart enough to create (what could be) a cool app, but too immature to know how to handle customer service courteously. Old saying: “You can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar.”
Excellent App
by Climbergirl2002 on 2021/04/24 20:40
We used this app all over southwestern France which is way more rural and has fewer people that speak English! we were able to travel on our own without a tour service or a tour guide. we didn’t have too many barriers language wise. The few times we had an issue was pronunciation. Those times we were in a situation where we could not play the audible of what one of us was trying to say. For that $20 per year charge for verbal translation and being able to take a photo of something to translate, it can’t be beat! Because we cannot always play the sound, it would really be nice if there was a phonetic pronunciation included. I grew up speaking Spanish and tended to lapse into a Spanish pronunciation to an unfamiliar French word when I could not hear it or see how to pronounce it!
Fair at best
by SukiTD on 2021/09/26 18:38
The app is good for some things. I do love the verb conjugations and the ease of use. The problem is the translations are inconsistent often literally word translations vs concept or translations of simple phrases. As much as I want to like this app, I can never trust it and ALWAYS have to go to a second app to verify. For example today I came across the word “sobrecargos” in the phrase “la amabilidad de los sobrecargos”. Your app translated that as “overcharges” even in translating the entire phrase. Since “the kindness of the overcharges” (the translation provided by iTranslate) didn’t make sense I knew there had to be another definition. I had to go to another app to get the phrase “the kindness of the flight attendants”. To check if this was an extremely obscure definition I googled sobrecargos and all of top hits were regarding flight attendants. This occurs so often that I cannot trust iTranslate translations on their own. MOST of the time it’s fine but sometimes it can be catastrophic, so I ALWAYS double check in another app.
Interesting...
by Abccvb on 2018/10/11 09:32
The app is of great value and allows for practice for those who put in the time reading, saying, and listening. I like having access to the phrasebook necessity of languages. Traveling, class, and communicating personably or professional with this app is a plus. In writing this it was now time to pay monthly again, not having realizing 30 days had past. I had not used the app yet, but tested to see if it updated. The price it worth it depending upon usage. I did think 4.99 per month was pricey. Again usage determines the price. For me, based upon my usage I may subscribe periodically throughout the year, realizing the initial update fee was not for the entirety or year. The app is a “diamond in the rough”, when you are somewhere needing to access the necessities within the ventures of travel.
pretty solid translator...but could use some tweaking
by reganhk on 2019/02/21 06:09
The app is pretty good. I haven’t seen any bugs or significant negative points. The interface is neat and easy to navigate. There’s no ads at the bottom of the screen but the pop-up ads could be less. Instead of pop-up ads, place the ads on the Phrasebook tab as an “Additional features” kinda promo section. It can still be seen but it’s not an interference that’s shoved into your face while you’re in the middle of typing a sentence. Also, an option to make a personalized added phrases list in the Phrasebook tab would be great. I have commonly used phrases that I’m sure are different from others’ commonly used phrases. Being able to have those ready at hand will save time and efficiency, which are important when you’re lost or confused or need to give directions immediately.
A great translator
by Tarona on 2020/09/09 18:04
I am from the U.S. Living in Quebec Canada and have the need to use this app constantly. I have used it for over a year now and it is by far the best that I have found so far.......and I have tried many. For the most part, I have found it to be fast, efficient, and accurate. It's not perfect because of the difficulty in communicating ones exact thoughts to another vocally, let alone expecting an app to do it, but it does a very good job and I highly recommend it to everyone, especially to those who are struggling with the French language. I believe the developers listen to the users suggestions and are constantly working on, developing, and upgrading the app to be even more accurate and efficient. I give it the full five stars.
Easy to use with a simple format.
by Yozgoat on 2021/10/09 22:55
I have spoken to many friends using various languages on this app and usually when using translation online or on other apps a lot of times the person im talking to doesn’t understand some words but on this app I haven’t had that issue once. I see people saying it’s a scam, how? It gives you the option to pay for the full version of the app but if you don’t want to you can simply click the X button on the too right and enjoy the free version which does pretty much anything you need to begin with. I rarely write reviews on applications but I give credit when it’s due and especially for this app because I have family and friends all around the world. Thank you for creating this app!
Used to love it Now ads are ruining it.
by auntiegramma on 2017/09/20 22:49
Brief review-- This translate app was always fantastic. Little by little my free version has been adding more and more ads. I fully support the need for ads, and usually get the paid version when I can. Tonight was the last straw and I've deleted the app. I'm trying to look up a simple phrase, lying beside my mate, who is fast asleep, and suddenly (without warning or giving me any choice , a LOUD video ad starts blaring. I nearly jumped out of my skin. No more iTranslate for me... It'll have to be Google for me. Sad to have to leave, but I *never* want that to happen again. Update: Developer says more ads isn't true, but... I haven’t tried reinstalling, but I have to tell you that the kicker for me was this: I was using iTranslate while lying up in bed with my partner fast asleep next to me… SUDDENLY and very loud and jarring there was a VIDEO ad… which made me jump out of my skin… and woke my partner. I have NEVER before seen a video ad in your app. Ever. So, you may not have increased the occurrence of ads, but this (video ads) is most definitely new to me - and I’ve had your app for years. Was it just my luck that this never occurred before? And I think you folks need to fix those videos so users have an option to mute. Until I know that this could never happen again, I don’t think I’ll be using iTranslate. It really was rather dramatic.
Add more languages please.
by Brandon Ryder on 2020/04/28 16:26
i have a Peruvian related family where my mother and I has a similar bloodline to them. there was a Facebook post my cousin made and she’s Peruvian. So I end up using Mexican language to translate but I couldn’t find her language 😟. Instead I brought myself to the usual Mexican translation. I wanted to comment on her but I want to make sure I’m fluent in their language so they can understand. So, I typed my words to translation of what I wanted to comment, which is a little joke. So I thought it could go well! WRONG. my mother had told me that the comment came out as an insult, not a joke. I tried to say it the way I want it to be said but instead I had to go back to her post and delete my comment. ☹️ Mainly it was my fault, I wish to respect your app but I am really disappointed that this app does not have any additional Hispanic languages. Not saying this app is uncultured, but I would wish more for it to adapt to change. I’m just saying.
Very helpful app
by Long-time birder on 2020/01/25 22:03
I used this app while visiting Colombia a few months ago. I was able to have a conversation with several people who spoke no English just by passing my phone around and letting it do the talking. I used it to read menus in restaurants, to order room service, and to give directions to taxi drivers. The people I interacted with really appreciated my attempts at communicating with them in their language, and it was so much easier to understand directions after they appeared in writing, rather than trying to keep up with rapid fire Spanish. Best of all, I could keep a record of the conversation for reference. No more, “here’s the church where we are supposed to turn, but I forgot whether she said to turn left or right”.
Not too accurate...
by ImTheAngryBirdRightNow on 2018/10/26 00:27
I may not be fluent in too many languages, though I do know enough to get through small talk. It seems pretty difficult to find a good online translator that can actually distinguish the usage of nouns and conjugations in actual conversation or even just sentence usage. These apps need to reprogrammed by those who are fluent in these languages to properly give those of us still learning a better understanding of how to say what we wish to say. I tested some things I know in languages such as German, Gaelic, Italian, and even Latin to see just how accurate this and other apps are and so far they are to quite a degree incorrect. These apps seem too focused on a literal dictionary translation instead of how the words are actually formed together in a true spoken sentence. I’d like to be able to better use this app to translate phrases and conversation I don’t yet know so hopefully sometime soon the administration of this app catch on to the lack of real life accuracy and fix this.
In Japan
by JRocFL on 2018/10/01 00:33
I was excited to get the app initially. It did help make some translations. I translated a few phrases (while on WiFi) and screenshot the display so that it could be used as we were out. Of course the issue was that I could not predict what conversations would come about. So I did the trial for “Off-Line” Translations. When I used it out and off line, the Japanese did not understand it; could not read it, and expressed “it made no sense”. Therefore, the off-line version did NOT work. As I used the same pre-recorded phases (when in WiFi) there was no problem. The Japanese laughed as they understood my punchlines effortlessly. Another issue was that the app did NOT recognize Japanese symbols. It displays that it only works when on WiFi- and yet when I used it; still no progress. Surely it was a let down for I needed it the most. Gotta cancel this app as soon as I get back home. It helped, but did not perform as designed.
Duolingo holds my attention better than any program I have tried
by Cat43 on 2021/06/06 21:09
I like the interactive lessons. I also like the graded repetition. I have been doing daily lessons for 2 1/2 years and just recently upgraded to Duolingo Plus. It is nice not having to watch ads or worry about having to refill my hearts if I make too many mistake or typos. I do all of my lessons on my iPhone so typos and auto correct are a common source of errors. I don’t always catch errors if I am in a hurry. I have seen a lot of improvement in the program in the 2 1/2 years that I have been using it. I love the stories, but I have finished all of them. I’m looking forward to more. Keep up the good work Duolingo Team!
Not What I Expected
by EverlyBaine on 2018/07/31 14:05
I downloaded this app because I read that it can be integrated with iMessages so I figured it would make things easier for me to translate languages directly from the iMessage app instead of copying and pasting into a separate translation app or website however, that is not the case. Yes, this app is integrated with iMessages and allows YOUR message to be easily translated within the iMessage app before sending but when someone responds to you in a language you wish to translate you will still have to copy and paste to know what they are saying, and you can do that for free with Google Translate instead of $4.99 a month. Suggestion: It would be better if the app was designed to automatically translate the other person’s text message without having to copy/paste or click on a bunch of buttons that apparently don’t work (the chat bubble button on bottom of keyboard).
Great fluent intigration!
by JamesOsbornee on 2018/03/02 05:24
I would love to give this amazing app a 5 star review. The fact that it auto translates what you type pretty accurately compare-able to fluent speakers of translated language. I’m also very fond of the bubble that pops up when you copy text. Not having to leave the app to open another app just to do the translation, makes having conversations in two languages much smoother and fluid. However the reason I am doing s 4 star is because I’m currently experiencing a bug that I hope to bring light too or find out if it’s something that is being targeted currently. When you type too fast on the keyboard it will crash and reload the original Apple keyboard. It freezes as you type quite often as well. Again great app but just this one thing for now!
Conflicting Translations
by AlwaysForgotten on 2019/11/28 13:52
I purchased this app because I’m traveling Latin America for the next 6 months and was looking to use this as a tool while I’m learning Spanish. The voice recognition is frustrating, it takes a few tries to recognize the correct thing being said for English and Spanish. It also gives a different translation when spoken vs typed even though the spoken words show up exactly as typed. Unfortunately I didn’t notice these errors during the week trial period and when I reached out to the developer they responded with rudeness and was very argumentative. They said that someone would need to speak punctuations for it to translate properly. This is absurd. I have found another app that functions with accuracy when one is in a real life conversation. I’m ticked that I wasted $50 bucks on this crap and trying to figure out how to get a refund is proving to be worse than unraveling a spiderweb. Do NOT waste your money!
Good idea, needs polish
by DrWurm on 2018/01/23 00:36
So a couple of things I immediately noticed. The iMessage app keyboard is broken. You can’t type alternate characters (like “ç”) because the menu disappears when you move your finger to select them. It works if you install the actual iMessage keyboard, but not in the iMessage app. I would really like to have the 3D touch cursor control enabled in the keyboard (firm press turns keyboard area into trackpad to move cursor in text field). I speak english and the person I use this with speaks Portuguese. A lot of her messages to me are mixed language. If she sends me one that starts in English and then ends in Portuguese, then the copied message button performs an english->portuguese translation, which means I get no help from it. It would help to be able to reverse the translation direction so that the part I need translated actually translates.
One Suggestion
by DebanPro on 2019/02/16 07:32
The update make it more easier to translate on keyboard version but one suggestion I wanted an easy way to change language in keyboard for example I speak Japanese and my friend is speaking English I will translate it to Japanese To english right? And if I wanna understand my friends language I gotta go scroll and scroll to change the language so maybe you could add the swap button so more easier to swap but only that 2 specific language you chosed and also 2 buttons to remove all types words and one button to bring back the deleted words I hope this helped many people including me thank you devs a big credit for you all!.
Wrong Translation
by GAMERGEEKPLAYS on 2019/06/25 01:40
I heard about the app from a few friends and they told me to try it out. As a friend, I decided to check it out. Of course, I know two languages, English and Japanese. So, I was thinking I could find out if the translation are right. Even find a few new words myself. So I typed in some stuff in English. Guess what? They even got the simple ‘Hello’ in Japanese wrong! I mean, if you are learning Japanese, that is the first thing you learn. And yet, some people may think the is simply correct. They got others wrong, too. My friend has a trip overseas and so she tried getting a good translate app to learn a couple of words. Poor girl thinks that the words are correct. Even I know. Who is running it? Make a app that actually works. Not give me and others half way. Thank you for reading this.
Been using this (and only this) for years
by Jacks LC on 2018/07/20 15:46
I don’t ever write reviews, and I don’t even have the upgraded version of this app, but it has helped me immensely over the years. From translating French while taking a course at uni to Portuguese when I forget words in my own language. I love that the app doesn’t charge for the pronunciation feature. You can choose a female or male voice and even edit the speed at which each language is pronounced. That’s gotta be the coolest feature I’ve personally seen on a translation app. The whole app is so smooth and easy to use, and it’s aesthetically simple and pleasing. To everyone who had a part in creating and releasing it, merci beaucoup!
Amazing app but works best if you know a little about Spanish.
by Marijuana_Primadonna on 2019/10/17 18:37
I took Spanish classes for almost 15 years. Now that I’m not in school anymore, I’ve become a little rusty. I don’t want to mess up my ability to speak fluent Spanish and the apps help tremendously. I use DuoLingo as a way to practice daily and level up. But sometimes I’ll forget a word or phrase and the iTranslate app is nothing short of a blessing. I regularly converse with people in Spanish (as an attempt to maintain my skill) and it comes in VERY handy if you’re trying to use some level of American “slang”. So it teaches you the correct terminology so that it makes sense in their language. LOVE THIS APP. 100% recommend.
Nice app, but missing spoken Bulgarian.
by Celtic Valley on 2019/06/11 08:57
I saw the advertisement for iTranslate where one could speak in one language and the app would speak it in a target language, and vice versa. That looked very cool to me so I downloaded iTranslate and paid for the trial to try this feature. It really does work. I tried it for English to Chinese. Wow. Unfortunately, I downloaded iTranslate because I am visiting Bulgaria. It turns out that Bulgarian is not a spoken language yet for iTranslate. This is the only reason I am giving this app four stars. I have no complaints about the app otherwise, and I fully understand that it takes time to build a large library of spoken languages. So take my four stars with a grain of salt. This could be the five star app you were looking for.
It WAS great..
by Oralia820 on 2019/01/20 05:19
I only downloaded this app because of a college course Spanish class. When i got the app it had barely been released on the app store & honestly the translations were pretty spot on! It WAS , WAS a good translator app, but now i don't I DO NOT recommend downloading this to only pay for it to work! This app never needed a subscription to work! Recently ive been noticing that every time i try to translate anything, The App SHUTS-DOWN PURPOSELY after every time a word or phrase is to be translated to the preferred language. For that i am removing this app after 6 yrs of having it on my phone. It was a great! WAS! Ridiculous how it shuts down now when i never had that problem. Now if i want a translation i have to pay!? Nope. Sorry, removed from my phone. I loved the app i honestly did just the whole having to pay for it to MAYBE work. Nah. Im good, ill stick to google.
DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THE FREE TRIAL
by psalber on 2019/12/15 23:28
Not only is this a terrible app with many mistakes (for example beets translates into beets in Spanish), but there is no way to cancel during the free trial. (No cancel button). Nor is there a way to send a message to the developer (no “send” button.) you cannot cancel until you receive the receipt for the $49 subscription and then it is too late. You have been charged and attempts to request a refund are futile. Both my husband (who also signed up for the trial) and I filled out the request with a description of what happened. Immediately, within seconds of clicking the “send” button, we got a response saying that our request had been reviewed and didn’t qualify for a refund. This would be laughable if we weren’t already tearing our hair out in utter frustration. Btw, earlier today my husband filled out a review with similar concerns. It has not been published. Not good.
😟
by Peanut D. on 2019/02/06 00:16
I loved it when I first got it but it got annoying because you have to pay for ALMOST EVERYTHING! If your in a different country and your trying to talk to someone who doesn’t speak the same language as you, you can’t use the app unless you have WiFi so if your in a part of town with no WiFi, then your just out of luck and you can’t communicate because you have to PAY just to use the app out of WiFi! Also if your in a different country and there’s a sign not in your language you have to pay to use the camera that translates words from signs and papers and stuff. So if something says danger and you don’t speak the language of the sign then the sign doesn’t really matter to you even though it is important because you just have to pay.
Should not be charged before trying
by GrainAcier on 2019/01/08 07:18
I hate when you guys do that. How am I trying it if I have to pay for it in advance? What if I don’t have the money available at the time I want to try it? You should let the app be tested for free as a Free Trial version, as you mention. I don’t even know if I am going to like and then first thing I encounter when opening the App for the first time is a payment of $4.99/mo. Come on. That doesn’t make any sense. What if I forget to cancel the free trial if I don’t like it for some reasons or if there is a problem where I am unable to do the cancellation for any unexpected emergency reason. The developer should give us, the user, some time to try it and then block the free trial to give users an option to either pay for it or give it up. In my opinion, it’s tricky the way you do it. I can’t even rate it because I never had a chance to try the Trial Version.
no issues, amazing app
by Another Friend of Shep on 2020/07/02 06:00
I’ve had nothing but satisfaction from this clean interface, multi-function app. Having traveled to places where human translators are not a given, this app can be a lifesaver. Using speech, voice and speaker, you can have a “conversation” in a foreign language with only a minimal delay. Also great if you’re just interested in language, or learning a language. (As for paid upgrade - it’s fabulous - I activate my subscription when I’m traveling, and sometimes suspend it when I’m not, whatever the case, it is worth every penny of the modest cost for the major upgrades!) My go-to translator - give it a try.
Make more languages available offline
by Frapp Lover on 2018/08/28 18:15
I really love this app, it’s easy to use and extremely helpful when I travel. However I am disappointed that ONLY one (Arabic, -Egypt) language from the continent of Africa is available offline and has the voice feature. The other for the languages from the continent of Africa (< than 10 languages) do not have the offline availability or voice feature. In the next upgrade can the languages of Igbo, Swahili, Sudanese, Yoruba & Zulu be given additional features that some of the other languages have? This definitely would increase my usage of your app/recommendations to others who are also world travelers and have me purchase the pro feature again.
Previously Purchased Old App, Not Repurchasing in New
by TransRapid on 2017/11/24 17:11
Offers a + version which is paid, then makes it unavailable to download and tries to charge you twice by IAP in this version. Other developers in a similar situation have given the + features in the unified version if you already purchased them in the standalone +. NOT THESE GUYS! *Reply to developer response. Thanks for the reply, but that’s entirely not the case. I can’t access the pro features I paid for. I tried restoring purchases but your team must have changed the list of purchases available, removing the option I had paid for, even if it was recreated; as my purchases which do show in iTunes cannot be restored in your app.
So disappointed
by AyanaJean on 2019/11/23 15:21
I used to swear by this app, I found myself using it more than google translate. I live and travel a rod roughy 9 months straight out of very year so I always need help with translation. The app was very handy and had features that I loved so much I’d recommend the app to every friend I have. Now, however, the translations are ALWAYS wrong. The widget copy/paste feature is awful as well and customer service was no help in trying to solve the problem. Customer service tried to suggest that I had done something to mess with the settings in my app, and that is why it wasn’t working. I’ve never changed my settings or the way that I use the app, it’s 100% the developers problem and I’m beyond disappointed that this has gone on for so long. It’s been months that this has been happening and it doesn’t appear that they’re going to fix it.
Beware!
by ajc 7 on 2018/10/31 16:23
I initially would have rated this app higher. I bought it some time ago and used it, then paid to purchase the Premium version. Now when I try to use it I cannot access the app. Instead I get a drop down menu pushing the purchase of the “Pro” version for $4.99/month. There is a note that says “ restore purchases” which I assumed would restore my already paid for “Premium” version. It does not! Instead the buy- the- Pro version drop down menu continues and I cannot access the Premium version. I have contacted developer on various occasions about the problem. They tell that yes I have the Premium version but they do nothing to give me access to it. The buy- the- Pro at $4.99 that is automatically renewable forever continues. Beware of what your are getting into with this app!
Poor translations when it works
by NonParloItaliano on 2020/04/27 08:39
I am using this app to translate from Italian to English and 1/3 times it won’t translate the word at all, instead it just repeats the same word I typed in English in the Italian box. I’m typing things like “lemon cake recipe” and “woke up” that got zero translation. It also shows me a list of the English verb conjugations not the Italian ones. It seems more like a basic dictionary than a smart translator. I checked my settings to confirm it understands I know English and am learning Italian - all the settings are right. It’s also no longer working with my microphone and I’ve had the app three weeks - just enough time for me to have paid for it. This is very disappointing for the price. I would recommend looking for another app if you want to translate anything complex like a recipe :)
Limited offline functionality, and inaccurate
by Bodiddly21 on 2018/07/29 13:00
I bought this app, to have short, off-line exchanges in Japanese. It has only confused those with whom I have attempted to converse. The app is befuddled by plural nouns, verbs in past or future tense, commas, and many simple words, such as triple. Sentences are re-arranged, often rendering the opposite meaning. In order to say anything, I have to repeatedly translate my statement or question from English to Japanese, and back again, tweaking and simplifying it each time. To make matters worse, many of the most attractive features do not function without an internet connection, and voice translations are sent to Apple. They do not need any of my biometric data. In short, this app is useless to me, and the subscription based model makes it expensive. I do not recommend it.
They are stealing from us.
by Jolizkem on 2018/04/23 23:53
I’ve bought this app the pro version long time ago, and it was like 3.99 and now the change the price and I can’t use the pro version because they trying to charge me 4.99 a month. Why? If I’ve already or purchased the pro version, it’s is fair? If you guys changed the prices that’s not our problems, us who bought the pro version when it was cheaper have the right to have all the benefits of the pro version because that’s what we paid for long time ago. How you guys think we’re gonna trust you? We can’t, we won’t. That’s stealing and forcing people to pay 2 times for something already pay. How’s is that you can’t find my account? You guys have everything on file, but is not convenient for you guys to find my previous purchase because a y’all want me to pay another time.👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽

This app is handy for short translations. I use it quite frequently for Swedish French Spanish and the Czech Language. My only real complaint is when I'm trying to verify something in those languages it doesn't convert to English; it just repeats in the same spellings of those languages.

Must pay to use certain features
by Jetty2003 on 2021/10/15 07:27
I got this app for the camera feature since I couldn't just google translate. I opened the app and it already hit me at a paywall, the X button was hidden so it took me a good min to close it. After doing that I clicked on the camera option to learn that it was hidden behind a paywall. Don’t advertise a camera feature if you have to pay for it since that's is a scummy thing to do

No Free Version Anymore
by LynOnNorthCoast on 2021/10/11 17:56
I’ve used the “free” version of the app for a number of years. Today, I tried to use it to translate one word, and up pops a page which I cannot override that insists I buy it at a monthly fee, or try their paid version on a subscription basis (after a free week). No thanks. I’m done. I honestly didn’t mind the ads, and sometimes clicked on good offers. But if I’m looking at ads, it’s NOT “free.”

by Yozgoat on 2021/10/09 22:55
I have spoken to many friends using various languages on this app and usually when using translation online or on other apps a lot of times the person im talking to doesn’t understand some words but on this app I haven’t had that issue once. I see people saying it’s a scam, how? It gives you the option to pay for the full version of the app but if you don’t want to you can simply click the X button on the too right and enjoy the free version which does pretty much anything you need to begin with. I rarely write reviews on applications but I give credit when it’s due and especially for this app because I have family and friends all around the world. Thank you for creating this app!

I wanted an Arabic translator to give me a specific country dialect. This app does that..I love that you can hear how a word u it S pronounced. I do wish the voice could be chosen male or female. UPDATE: received a nice message from developers explaining that I actually can choose the voice AND slow down/speed up speech! Elated that it has UAE specific translation! I’m learning the language but by bit with this app help!

poor, indisclosed data ethics
by Boll Weevill on 2021/10/06 12:21
So for some reason my last iTranslate review has been deleted; so in response to itranslate’s response to me wrt data integrity… here is what i can monitor when using this app to translate one word, “hello” from english to Korean; there are 26 instances of data sent to facebook dot com; 3 instances sent to adjust dot com, and 3 sent to measurement dot. All are 3rd party data collectors, and NOT in control nor permision by the user (me). So i repeat my review comment, that this developer is not maintaining good data ethics by disclosing what data and potentially private info is being exchanged to the likes of facebook, a known abuser. (ref eff dot org to learn about these 3rd party practices) —- i really like this app, except for the 3rd party data sharing without my permission. especially to facebook to whom i want nothing sent.

I hear good things… I do not currently understand the app but I got an immediate response from developers, so that’s encouraging. If I work a little harder maybe I can figure out all the features.
I really like it

Very good app

Very good app. Even though I speak Spanish, which is always the one I translate, I have found that it sometimes has trouble with Caribbean Spanish. It works great with European Spanish which is the proper " book'" Spanish. If they expand their data base to include Caribbean dialect, it would be unbeatable.
So helpful

This app saved my husband and I much grief. After sustaining damage to our vacation home in Mexico we spent several months with local workers and at the local Home Depot. My husband would type in to the app what he wanted to convey and then show it to the Mexicans. They would say "Oh, OK!" and then all of us would laugh. Progress!

This app is so helpful until a random interrupts. It's so annoying and that's why I rate it three stars.

I don’t speak Spanish at all but met a Latino guy who needed help taking some classes at the community college I work at. We only used the free part and within two minutes of us opening it we were communicating, not just talking. We were able to ask each other any questions we had and give detailed answers. Think about that...this app allowed me, an English speaker to help a Spanish speaking man come up with a plan to get him an education and improve his life. The look on his face as it became clear that this app worked and he wasn’t going to have to struggle to find the words to say what he wanted and try to understand the answers he was getting...within a few minutes!!!! This man came in knowing it was going to be difficult to get the info he needed but he didn’t care because an education was that important to him. He left and his feet barely touched the ground because this app put the American Dream within his reach and as an American who was able to help him take the first steps towards that I couldn’t be more proud!!!! So in case you are wondering I give this app ten million stars👌🌈🌈🌈.
Scam, forces you into a subscription
by [N7]NobodyCats on 2020/11/27 17:17
If you don’t believe me download it, you can’t use anything but the bare minimum of translating by typing it in manually, If you want to use a translator app just use google translate app completely free and has a camera translator function, you have to pay actual money to even use the camera function on this app, heck you can’t do anything but the bare minimum with this the rest of the stuff they force you to do a monthly subscription or do the free trial, that also forces you into a subscription. When you try to use anything but the minimum it brings up a window telling you to pay a 5.99 monthly fee, or do the 7 day free trial with a subscription. It’ll forcefully subscribe you if you do the free trial. But regardless paying for this is pointless when google translate app is completely free and has the camera function. This is just a scam to get as much money as possible which is why they have a subscription system so they can keep taking in money instead of a one time purchase. Basically unless you like spending or losing money for an app you likely won’t use more than 1-2x a month don’t get it. Besides with how accessible the internet and what not is, why would you bother paying for something like this that is literally free everywhere. Anything that has access to the web can be used to get to a translator website. Now try imagine paying $50-$75 a month or year for this?
So easy to use!

I love iTranslate and use it frequently! My sister-in-law is Italian and I am American. She speaks and writes in English without issue, but most of her family and friends back home don't speak or write in English or feel more comfortable in Italian. iTranslate helps me understand Facebook comments about my sister-in-law or niece that I would otherwise be unable to read/translate (my Italian isn't that advanced). It also allows me to look at foreign websites and translate from the source language into English. My parents enjoy international travel and like to stay in small bed and breakfast type places instead of large multi-national hotel chains. Often these small B&B's website doesn't have an English version, so iTranslate comes to the rescue! I usually know what language I am translating from, but from time to time I will want to translate a tweet or FB comment that is written in a language I don't recognize. When that happens, it definitely comes in handy that iTranslate has the "Detect Language" function and can automatically translate it to English or another language of your choosing. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND using iTranslate!
I half accidentally paid for this app
by kat8478493 on 2021/04/11 01:03
Truly I wanted to forget to cancel it because I I really want to learn Spanish and other languages. Omg. Just now I’ve finally let go of the guilt of spending the money, plus so much has been happening lately, stopping to learn anything new has been a luxury. So I just now checked out the features of this app. Omg. Lol. It’s pretty much amazing. I just found one feature where I can speak to my phone in English, and then press play it will translate to whomever in idk, 30 languages? Not sure how many the speaking feature covers. Taking pictures of objects, besides it being useful to learn new languages is honestly just really fun, to see how well it can guess what’s in the picture from the limited area of space you’ve given it. Now that I’ve reallly looked, I’m thinking I might pay for it again when the year runs out. I have not checked with native Spanish speakers or anyone else to verify the translations are perfectly accurate. I will do that. But so far this thing is amazing. I’ve been sitting here at the gas station not getting gas for an hour playing with it.
LOVED this app initially & would have paid for it, BUT...
by GoodStuffHappens on 2018/05/30 13:59
Initially this app would have gotten 5 stars. It beat google translate and a tu ally did a decent job translating English to German & vise versa; especially for a free app. But of late the app consistently crashes immediately after is finishes the cycle of translation; and before I have time to even verify it’s accuracy so not sure if it’s still as correct as it used to be I read in a some reviews that it isn’t anymore; i.e. Korean for example, but I wouldn’t know since it keeps crashing. Wrote to Support and will see what happens. Also asked me to upgrade which I strongly considered but not with some of the small print in permissions. Beware that it requires access to any past translations as well & beware that anything you type it paste into it to translate will be accessed by this app; so you might wish to leave out financial or sensitive Information, etc.; like if you’re translating a contract. Also, the premium (paid) version price tag seems rather steep to a lot of the reviewers here as well as to me the way it is organized now. I’d say it’s a bit of “carrot” app; “Lookie what I got here! Okay now come and get it!” ...Once you start chasing it, it eludes you. ... If they make improvements and adjustments, I’ll alter my review, but for I’ll say, sadly, I’d pass!
A Very Good Language Tool
by Rocky33Now on 2021/09/10 21:09
I use this app a great deal, at least once a week, most the time way more. With social media I find people from all over the world posting content from other countries. People from other countries sending messages in their native language. I come across something written in another language I’m not familiar with. This app helps me a lot, without spending so much time trying to learn the languages. This app helps me figure things out quickly, and move on. I’ve actually written long letters in French to some people. They seem to understand what I’m wiring. No one ever tells me I miss spelled anything. And no one ever tells me I used the wrong word, or said something wrong. I don’t even know what I’m doing. Then when the people write me back, this app helps me figure out what they wrote me. This app translates every word I want to say, or read. I copy paste away in both directions; depending on whether I want to compose, or read in another language. It takes a little thinking sometimes, this app does most the work. Try this app out to close the communication gap with different languages.
Fantastic
by samueljlor on 2018/12/25 19:17
I do not understand all of the negative reviews. Translating any language perfectly requires near mastery of the language so take the time to learn whichever one or more languages you choose. In the meantime I challenge you to find a better app than this one. I have used it throughout Europe and it has been invaluable well beyond the $40 I spent to upgrade to the pro version. Translating restaurant menus was worth that price alone. The app continues to evolve and improve. Tens of thousands of people are using the app. I don't find the responses to complaints caustic but merely informative. Don't let the negative reviews prevent a purchase that can be very valuable. And if you want to use a free trial it may make sense to have a need for the program during that time period to fully test it. And no I do not work for the company, only a happy customer that is realistic and understands limitations of any language program. I think translating "get a life" from English to any language might miss the intended meaning.
I can’t even 🤦🏾‍♀️🤯
by Katybaggs on 2017/12/30 22:57
Ok, look /listen...When I first got this app I thought it would be amazing and such a big help, and the possibility using it on my Apple Watch was a bonus; I was really looking forward to paying for it after my trial, buuut then I started getting wrong translations all over the place. I want to know who is providing the translations for these words...cause this is nonsense. I’m learning Korean and it kind of defeats the purpose of having a translator app, that provides the WRONG translations a lot of the time; I stopped using google translate for that same reason. I get tired of having to look up the word online just to get the correct meaning, it’s frustrating. When I look up words in the translator I am not typing in American letters, I am typing in 한글 (Hangul), just to make sure that I get the correct translation. I have even provided the corrected translations for some of the words I have looked up through the app, and surprise, surprise they are STILL wrong and haven’t been corrected; why have “wrong?” A feature in the app if you are not going to take advantage of it, and correct what is effectively wrong...SMH. Either way my money will stay in my pocket when it comes to even thinking about purchasing this app 🙅🏾‍♀️. Move on there’s nothing to see here.
Very Good App.
by RJ2544 on 2021/03/11 01:11
I’ve used this app quite a lot now, maybe a little expensive, but it’s worth the price to me. I just pay monthly so I can stop when I don’t need it. I translate French which I’m learning (very slowly) and Filipino called Tagalog which only translates in written form not speaking sounds. I give it 5 stars ‘cause it’s worth it to me. Maybe it’s not perfect, but it’s one heck of a lot better than nothing. I’m not sure, but I would say it’s probably the best translator available. I’ve used a couple of others a long time ago and they were not near this good. Most people who give this one a low star rating are probably low star themselves! I talked to a woman over 20 years ago that was working on this very thing, well, machine translation at the University of Illinois. I think it’s very difficult so many variables.
It will help you get by...
by Alupinya on 2020/02/05 12:40
Please note, I’m asking a lot from it. American living in Germany and using it in/for a German language course. My wife is German and also a English and German teacher. It’s been pointed out on more than one occasion “that doesn’t mean (xyz) at all...” when using or quoting this app. If you’re using it just to get around for a vacation, sure. Plus (at least in Germany) they’re very polite and (almost) everyone speaks English so they won’t point out this app has missed the mark. If you just want to find a the bathroom or get food and a beer, I’ve used a free app that is a lot better for communicating. (if this is now free absolutely download it, but if not...). Remember I need to know “Wie spät ist es?”- is not - “what time is it” (the app translation) but what it truly says which is “How late is it?” so... For when you’re listening to someone speak or building sentences on your own later you’ll think wie means “what” and spät means time (what/was - time/zeit). It’s not always wrong, but it’s not always 100% right for everyday/conversational usage. If you do download, remember wie may not be what.
Used to be a great Application...
by Ericathebeast on 2018/07/04 21:56
It’s so sad to see how this app has gone downhill when it used to be fantastic. They now charge an exorbitant amount comparatively (4.99 per month), and compared to other services it’s just not worth it. Not only that, but “updates” have mislead many subscribers to sign up for a paid account, when it looks like a normal update, I’m surprised Apple hasn’t put a stop to that? Also, many mistakes in translations can be found, and if you read replies from other users, you will see that this company either expects its users to find and fix its own software issues, and/or rudely denies complaints, and calls people liars. Also, adds that used to be silent banners are now frequent, loud and disruptive; especially when you are trying to concentrate on translating. Also, now that I’ve read how poorly this company has been treating other people with critiques is honestly shocking! I’m not sure if this app is under new ownership or management, but it’s not something I want to rely on with all the incorrect translations, newly added loud commercials and combative and disrespectful treatment of subscribers. After having this app for years, I’m now of to find something better. Too bad.
Conflicted Feelings
by Peytonhk47 on 2018/01/04 03:59
I would like to start this review by saying that the idea is really great. I would totally subscribe for the verb conjugations and the layout is very clean. However I noticed another review noting that the Korean translations are incorrect, something I also noticed when using the app. 갈게 does not translate to “LL” at all. 徒然 didn’t even have a translation and was just romanized in English to “Tozenn” which is an incorrect romanization... Although I do see the option to input correct translations if they are wrong and I am not a developer, I feel that if you are trying to get people to use this as a translating app, you might want to hold off on some languages until they are fully developed and correct. As for the people who are saying iTranslate “automatically charges” and that the developer is accusing users of lying, I understand where you come from. But most apps do the same thing, advertising a free trial. They will charge you after the free trial, which I think is wrong and should be verified with the user before they assume you bought the PRO version, but you can always say you do not want to start a free trial. It’s a good idea to read everything before you just click next.
Never got to use it
by Phoenix1887 on 2018/06/08 16:17
I really dislike apps that puts such a huge wall around their features they want you to pay before you get to use them. They make it seem like they are such gold you can’t even taste without paying. People don’t pay until they’re hooked they need to get you hooked on it first. And this apps’ metric for measuring use in order to get you hooked is very weakly implemented. I signed up for the free trial when I downloaded the app so that I could use the features but I did not need them at the time so I never used the app until the trial expired. So in the end I never even tried it one time. That is a really dumb trial. The app needs to measure the use of the app and give you a trial based on actual use not some finite amount of time. Especially when translation is something you use when you need it not just on demand when the app tells you to use it. You don’t have something to translate until you have something you need translated! Bad design when it comes to trial. Focus more on user experience. Sadly I can’t even use the app so what can I do? Uninstall
Not free, planned obsolescence
by bordyafromthestern on 2020/11/05 20:18
You cannot use the app unless you subscribe, and get 7 days before you get charged. After reading the reviews & more importantly the responses from the developer, it is obvious that there is not much in the way of quality control, as in every response I read, the developer blames the user or device for the problem. This is no doubt possible, it is highly unlikely that it is every cause, not to mention the bait & switch of being a free download, but not a free app, I suspect a lot of the reviews are fake, & the app is crap because the problems people have are the same issues, & the developer always blames the user. That is seems to sink of planned obsolescence. Developers respond with a cut & paste of, “The free version is free & the pro version is paid”...this is completely true. So I will revise, there are no available translation features in the free version, you have to pay for that. In the free version, the only feature is seeing what you may be able to translate if you pay, just hope it is correct/works. DO NOT BOTHER
100% positive feedback!
by BC0092 on 2021/06/12 20:54
Wow. I have yet to try all of the features. It isn’t that the features are not beneficial... I am currently working to increase screen time (yes, increase). I didn’t like translation apps because of the undesired results. I guess this would be something I’ll just state vaguely because I’d rather be doing something else but I encourage anyone interested in translation apps to try this one and buy the pro in-app version. That will make all of the apps in the bundle available with pro features. The user interface is simple, elegant and easy to use. The experience started out being very satisfied and continues to fuel the thirst for knowledge and provide the perfect amount of pleasure to be very ally with the product and want even more. I just found more so I’m going back in to nerdify my life. More is more.
Started to Download it
by Einsteinetts on 2017/11/12 07:03
I was going to download this app bc we were spending a month in Europe, but after reading the reviews, Didn’t download. The reason wasn’t mainly bc so many people were unhappy about too many & too loud of ads (altho that was a small part of he reason). The main reason was the defensive, rude responses the people who gave reviews got from the developers! I am appalled that they would be called liars. Developers: Why on earth do you think so many people would say the same thing? Why do you think they would make that up? Do you think you are endearing yourselves to customers (where you get your $ from) by being so caustic? I will tell you I believe your customers, not you. And so will virtually every body else. And I also noticed that absolutely nothing is a glitch in YOUR program. It’s all the customer’s problem., or someone else’s ‘fault.’ Wow! Smart enough to create (what could be) a cool app, but too immature to know how to handle customer service courteously. Old saying: “You can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar.”
Excellent App
by Climbergirl2002 on 2021/04/24 20:40
We used this app all over southwestern France which is way more rural and has fewer people that speak English! we were able to travel on our own without a tour service or a tour guide. we didn’t have too many barriers language wise. The few times we had an issue was pronunciation. Those times we were in a situation where we could not play the audible of what one of us was trying to say. For that $20 per year charge for verbal translation and being able to take a photo of something to translate, it can’t be beat! Because we cannot always play the sound, it would really be nice if there was a phonetic pronunciation included. I grew up speaking Spanish and tended to lapse into a Spanish pronunciation to an unfamiliar French word when I could not hear it or see how to pronounce it!
Fair at best
by SukiTD on 2021/09/26 18:38
The app is good for some things. I do love the verb conjugations and the ease of use. The problem is the translations are inconsistent often literally word translations vs concept or translations of simple phrases. As much as I want to like this app, I can never trust it and ALWAYS have to go to a second app to verify. For example today I came across the word “sobrecargos” in the phrase “la amabilidad de los sobrecargos”. Your app translated that as “overcharges” even in translating the entire phrase. Since “the kindness of the overcharges” (the translation provided by iTranslate) didn’t make sense I knew there had to be another definition. I had to go to another app to get the phrase “the kindness of the flight attendants”. To check if this was an extremely obscure definition I googled sobrecargos and all of top hits were regarding flight attendants. This occurs so often that I cannot trust iTranslate translations on their own. MOST of the time it’s fine but sometimes it can be catastrophic, so I ALWAYS double check in another app.
Interesting...
by Abccvb on 2018/10/11 09:32
The app is of great value and allows for practice for those who put in the time reading, saying, and listening. I like having access to the phrasebook necessity of languages. Traveling, class, and communicating personably or professional with this app is a plus. In writing this it was now time to pay monthly again, not having realizing 30 days had past. I had not used the app yet, but tested to see if it updated. The price it worth it depending upon usage. I did think 4.99 per month was pricey. Again usage determines the price. For me, based upon my usage I may subscribe periodically throughout the year, realizing the initial update fee was not for the entirety or year. The app is a “diamond in the rough”, when you are somewhere needing to access the necessities within the ventures of travel.
pretty solid translator...but could use some tweaking
by reganhk on 2019/02/21 06:09
The app is pretty good. I haven’t seen any bugs or significant negative points. The interface is neat and easy to navigate. There’s no ads at the bottom of the screen but the pop-up ads could be less. Instead of pop-up ads, place the ads on the Phrasebook tab as an “Additional features” kinda promo section. It can still be seen but it’s not an interference that’s shoved into your face while you’re in the middle of typing a sentence. Also, an option to make a personalized added phrases list in the Phrasebook tab would be great. I have commonly used phrases that I’m sure are different from others’ commonly used phrases. Being able to have those ready at hand will save time and efficiency, which are important when you’re lost or confused or need to give directions immediately.
A great translator
by Tarona on 2020/09/09 18:04
I am from the U.S. Living in Quebec Canada and have the need to use this app constantly. I have used it for over a year now and it is by far the best that I have found so far.......and I have tried many. For the most part, I have found it to be fast, efficient, and accurate. It's not perfect because of the difficulty in communicating ones exact thoughts to another vocally, let alone expecting an app to do it, but it does a very good job and I highly recommend it to everyone, especially to those who are struggling with the French language. I believe the developers listen to the users suggestions and are constantly working on, developing, and upgrading the app to be even more accurate and efficient. I give it the full five stars.
Easy to use with a simple format.
by Yozgoat on 2021/10/09 22:55
I have spoken to many friends using various languages on this app and usually when using translation online or on other apps a lot of times the person im talking to doesn’t understand some words but on this app I haven’t had that issue once. I see people saying it’s a scam, how? It gives you the option to pay for the full version of the app but if you don’t want to you can simply click the X button on the too right and enjoy the free version which does pretty much anything you need to begin with. I rarely write reviews on applications but I give credit when it’s due and especially for this app because I have family and friends all around the world. Thank you for creating this app!
Used to love it Now ads are ruining it.
by auntiegramma on 2017/09/20 22:49
Brief review-- This translate app was always fantastic. Little by little my free version has been adding more and more ads. I fully support the need for ads, and usually get the paid version when I can. Tonight was the last straw and I've deleted the app. I'm trying to look up a simple phrase, lying beside my mate, who is fast asleep, and suddenly (without warning or giving me any choice , a LOUD video ad starts blaring. I nearly jumped out of my skin. No more iTranslate for me... It'll have to be Google for me. Sad to have to leave, but I *never* want that to happen again. Update: Developer says more ads isn't true, but... I haven’t tried reinstalling, but I have to tell you that the kicker for me was this: I was using iTranslate while lying up in bed with my partner fast asleep next to me… SUDDENLY and very loud and jarring there was a VIDEO ad… which made me jump out of my skin… and woke my partner. I have NEVER before seen a video ad in your app. Ever. So, you may not have increased the occurrence of ads, but this (video ads) is most definitely new to me - and I’ve had your app for years. Was it just my luck that this never occurred before? And I think you folks need to fix those videos so users have an option to mute. Until I know that this could never happen again, I don’t think I’ll be using iTranslate. It really was rather dramatic.
Add more languages please.
by Brandon Ryder on 2020/04/28 16:26
i have a Peruvian related family where my mother and I has a similar bloodline to them. there was a Facebook post my cousin made and she’s Peruvian. So I end up using Mexican language to translate but I couldn’t find her language 😟. Instead I brought myself to the usual Mexican translation. I wanted to comment on her but I want to make sure I’m fluent in their language so they can understand. So, I typed my words to translation of what I wanted to comment, which is a little joke. So I thought it could go well! WRONG. my mother had told me that the comment came out as an insult, not a joke. I tried to say it the way I want it to be said but instead I had to go back to her post and delete my comment. ☹️ Mainly it was my fault, I wish to respect your app but I am really disappointed that this app does not have any additional Hispanic languages. Not saying this app is uncultured, but I would wish more for it to adapt to change. I’m just saying.
Very helpful app
by Long-time birder on 2020/01/25 22:03
I used this app while visiting Colombia a few months ago. I was able to have a conversation with several people who spoke no English just by passing my phone around and letting it do the talking. I used it to read menus in restaurants, to order room service, and to give directions to taxi drivers. The people I interacted with really appreciated my attempts at communicating with them in their language, and it was so much easier to understand directions after they appeared in writing, rather than trying to keep up with rapid fire Spanish. Best of all, I could keep a record of the conversation for reference. No more, “here’s the church where we are supposed to turn, but I forgot whether she said to turn left or right”.
Not too accurate...
by ImTheAngryBirdRightNow on 2018/10/26 00:27
I may not be fluent in too many languages, though I do know enough to get through small talk. It seems pretty difficult to find a good online translator that can actually distinguish the usage of nouns and conjugations in actual conversation or even just sentence usage. These apps need to reprogrammed by those who are fluent in these languages to properly give those of us still learning a better understanding of how to say what we wish to say. I tested some things I know in languages such as German, Gaelic, Italian, and even Latin to see just how accurate this and other apps are and so far they are to quite a degree incorrect. These apps seem too focused on a literal dictionary translation instead of how the words are actually formed together in a true spoken sentence. I’d like to be able to better use this app to translate phrases and conversation I don’t yet know so hopefully sometime soon the administration of this app catch on to the lack of real life accuracy and fix this.

I was excited to get the app initially. It did help make some translations. I translated a few phrases (while on WiFi) and screenshot the display so that it could be used as we were out. Of course the issue was that I could not predict what conversations would come about. So I did the trial for “Off-Line” Translations. When I used it out and off line, the Japanese did not understand it; could not read it, and expressed “it made no sense”. Therefore, the off-line version did NOT work. As I used the same pre-recorded phases (when in WiFi) there was no problem. The Japanese laughed as they understood my punchlines effortlessly. Another issue was that the app did NOT recognize Japanese symbols. It displays that it only works when on WiFi- and yet when I used it; still no progress. Surely it was a let down for I needed it the most. Gotta cancel this app as soon as I get back home. It helped, but did not perform as designed.
Duolingo holds my attention better than any program I have tried
by Cat43 on 2021/06/06 21:09
I like the interactive lessons. I also like the graded repetition. I have been doing daily lessons for 2 1/2 years and just recently upgraded to Duolingo Plus. It is nice not having to watch ads or worry about having to refill my hearts if I make too many mistake or typos. I do all of my lessons on my iPhone so typos and auto correct are a common source of errors. I don’t always catch errors if I am in a hurry. I have seen a lot of improvement in the program in the 2 1/2 years that I have been using it. I love the stories, but I have finished all of them. I’m looking forward to more. Keep up the good work Duolingo Team!
Not What I Expected
by EverlyBaine on 2018/07/31 14:05
I downloaded this app because I read that it can be integrated with iMessages so I figured it would make things easier for me to translate languages directly from the iMessage app instead of copying and pasting into a separate translation app or website however, that is not the case. Yes, this app is integrated with iMessages and allows YOUR message to be easily translated within the iMessage app before sending but when someone responds to you in a language you wish to translate you will still have to copy and paste to know what they are saying, and you can do that for free with Google Translate instead of $4.99 a month. Suggestion: It would be better if the app was designed to automatically translate the other person’s text message without having to copy/paste or click on a bunch of buttons that apparently don’t work (the chat bubble button on bottom of keyboard).
Great fluent intigration!
by JamesOsbornee on 2018/03/02 05:24
I would love to give this amazing app a 5 star review. The fact that it auto translates what you type pretty accurately compare-able to fluent speakers of translated language. I’m also very fond of the bubble that pops up when you copy text. Not having to leave the app to open another app just to do the translation, makes having conversations in two languages much smoother and fluid. However the reason I am doing s 4 star is because I’m currently experiencing a bug that I hope to bring light too or find out if it’s something that is being targeted currently. When you type too fast on the keyboard it will crash and reload the original Apple keyboard. It freezes as you type quite often as well. Again great app but just this one thing for now!
Conflicting Translations
by AlwaysForgotten on 2019/11/28 13:52
I purchased this app because I’m traveling Latin America for the next 6 months and was looking to use this as a tool while I’m learning Spanish. The voice recognition is frustrating, it takes a few tries to recognize the correct thing being said for English and Spanish. It also gives a different translation when spoken vs typed even though the spoken words show up exactly as typed. Unfortunately I didn’t notice these errors during the week trial period and when I reached out to the developer they responded with rudeness and was very argumentative. They said that someone would need to speak punctuations for it to translate properly. This is absurd. I have found another app that functions with accuracy when one is in a real life conversation. I’m ticked that I wasted $50 bucks on this crap and trying to figure out how to get a refund is proving to be worse than unraveling a spiderweb. Do NOT waste your money!
Good idea, needs polish
by DrWurm on 2018/01/23 00:36
So a couple of things I immediately noticed. The iMessage app keyboard is broken. You can’t type alternate characters (like “ç”) because the menu disappears when you move your finger to select them. It works if you install the actual iMessage keyboard, but not in the iMessage app. I would really like to have the 3D touch cursor control enabled in the keyboard (firm press turns keyboard area into trackpad to move cursor in text field). I speak english and the person I use this with speaks Portuguese. A lot of her messages to me are mixed language. If she sends me one that starts in English and then ends in Portuguese, then the copied message button performs an english->portuguese translation, which means I get no help from it. It would help to be able to reverse the translation direction so that the part I need translated actually translates.
One Suggestion
by DebanPro on 2019/02/16 07:32
The update make it more easier to translate on keyboard version but one suggestion I wanted an easy way to change language in keyboard for example I speak Japanese and my friend is speaking English I will translate it to Japanese To english right? And if I wanna understand my friends language I gotta go scroll and scroll to change the language so maybe you could add the swap button so more easier to swap but only that 2 specific language you chosed and also 2 buttons to remove all types words and one button to bring back the deleted words I hope this helped many people including me thank you devs a big credit for you all!.
Wrong Translation
by GAMERGEEKPLAYS on 2019/06/25 01:40
I heard about the app from a few friends and they told me to try it out. As a friend, I decided to check it out. Of course, I know two languages, English and Japanese. So, I was thinking I could find out if the translation are right. Even find a few new words myself. So I typed in some stuff in English. Guess what? They even got the simple ‘Hello’ in Japanese wrong! I mean, if you are learning Japanese, that is the first thing you learn. And yet, some people may think the is simply correct. They got others wrong, too. My friend has a trip overseas and so she tried getting a good translate app to learn a couple of words. Poor girl thinks that the words are correct. Even I know. Who is running it? Make a app that actually works. Not give me and others half way. Thank you for reading this.
Been using this (and only this) for years
by Jacks LC on 2018/07/20 15:46
I don’t ever write reviews, and I don’t even have the upgraded version of this app, but it has helped me immensely over the years. From translating French while taking a course at uni to Portuguese when I forget words in my own language. I love that the app doesn’t charge for the pronunciation feature. You can choose a female or male voice and even edit the speed at which each language is pronounced. That’s gotta be the coolest feature I’ve personally seen on a translation app. The whole app is so smooth and easy to use, and it’s aesthetically simple and pleasing. To everyone who had a part in creating and releasing it, merci beaucoup!
Amazing app but works best if you know a little about Spanish.
by Marijuana_Primadonna on 2019/10/17 18:37
I took Spanish classes for almost 15 years. Now that I’m not in school anymore, I’ve become a little rusty. I don’t want to mess up my ability to speak fluent Spanish and the apps help tremendously. I use DuoLingo as a way to practice daily and level up. But sometimes I’ll forget a word or phrase and the iTranslate app is nothing short of a blessing. I regularly converse with people in Spanish (as an attempt to maintain my skill) and it comes in VERY handy if you’re trying to use some level of American “slang”. So it teaches you the correct terminology so that it makes sense in their language. LOVE THIS APP. 100% recommend.
Nice app, but missing spoken Bulgarian.
by Celtic Valley on 2019/06/11 08:57
I saw the advertisement for iTranslate where one could speak in one language and the app would speak it in a target language, and vice versa. That looked very cool to me so I downloaded iTranslate and paid for the trial to try this feature. It really does work. I tried it for English to Chinese. Wow. Unfortunately, I downloaded iTranslate because I am visiting Bulgaria. It turns out that Bulgarian is not a spoken language yet for iTranslate. This is the only reason I am giving this app four stars. I have no complaints about the app otherwise, and I fully understand that it takes time to build a large library of spoken languages. So take my four stars with a grain of salt. This could be the five star app you were looking for.
It WAS great..
by Oralia820 on 2019/01/20 05:19
I only downloaded this app because of a college course Spanish class. When i got the app it had barely been released on the app store & honestly the translations were pretty spot on! It WAS , WAS a good translator app, but now i don't I DO NOT recommend downloading this to only pay for it to work! This app never needed a subscription to work! Recently ive been noticing that every time i try to translate anything, The App SHUTS-DOWN PURPOSELY after every time a word or phrase is to be translated to the preferred language. For that i am removing this app after 6 yrs of having it on my phone. It was a great! WAS! Ridiculous how it shuts down now when i never had that problem. Now if i want a translation i have to pay!? Nope. Sorry, removed from my phone. I loved the app i honestly did just the whole having to pay for it to MAYBE work. Nah. Im good, ill stick to google.
DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THE FREE TRIAL
by psalber on 2019/12/15 23:28
Not only is this a terrible app with many mistakes (for example beets translates into beets in Spanish), but there is no way to cancel during the free trial. (No cancel button). Nor is there a way to send a message to the developer (no “send” button.) you cannot cancel until you receive the receipt for the $49 subscription and then it is too late. You have been charged and attempts to request a refund are futile. Both my husband (who also signed up for the trial) and I filled out the request with a description of what happened. Immediately, within seconds of clicking the “send” button, we got a response saying that our request had been reviewed and didn’t qualify for a refund. This would be laughable if we weren’t already tearing our hair out in utter frustration. Btw, earlier today my husband filled out a review with similar concerns. It has not been published. Not good.
😟
by Peanut D. on 2019/02/06 00:16
I loved it when I first got it but it got annoying because you have to pay for ALMOST EVERYTHING! If your in a different country and your trying to talk to someone who doesn’t speak the same language as you, you can’t use the app unless you have WiFi so if your in a part of town with no WiFi, then your just out of luck and you can’t communicate because you have to PAY just to use the app out of WiFi! Also if your in a different country and there’s a sign not in your language you have to pay to use the camera that translates words from signs and papers and stuff. So if something says danger and you don’t speak the language of the sign then the sign doesn’t really matter to you even though it is important because you just have to pay.
Should not be charged before trying
by GrainAcier on 2019/01/08 07:18
I hate when you guys do that. How am I trying it if I have to pay for it in advance? What if I don’t have the money available at the time I want to try it? You should let the app be tested for free as a Free Trial version, as you mention. I don’t even know if I am going to like and then first thing I encounter when opening the App for the first time is a payment of $4.99/mo. Come on. That doesn’t make any sense. What if I forget to cancel the free trial if I don’t like it for some reasons or if there is a problem where I am unable to do the cancellation for any unexpected emergency reason. The developer should give us, the user, some time to try it and then block the free trial to give users an option to either pay for it or give it up. In my opinion, it’s tricky the way you do it. I can’t even rate it because I never had a chance to try the Trial Version.
no issues, amazing app
by Another Friend of Shep on 2020/07/02 06:00
I’ve had nothing but satisfaction from this clean interface, multi-function app. Having traveled to places where human translators are not a given, this app can be a lifesaver. Using speech, voice and speaker, you can have a “conversation” in a foreign language with only a minimal delay. Also great if you’re just interested in language, or learning a language. (As for paid upgrade - it’s fabulous - I activate my subscription when I’m traveling, and sometimes suspend it when I’m not, whatever the case, it is worth every penny of the modest cost for the major upgrades!) My go-to translator - give it a try.
Make more languages available offline
by Frapp Lover on 2018/08/28 18:15
I really love this app, it’s easy to use and extremely helpful when I travel. However I am disappointed that ONLY one (Arabic, -Egypt) language from the continent of Africa is available offline and has the voice feature. The other for the languages from the continent of Africa (< than 10 languages) do not have the offline availability or voice feature. In the next upgrade can the languages of Igbo, Swahili, Sudanese, Yoruba & Zulu be given additional features that some of the other languages have? This definitely would increase my usage of your app/recommendations to others who are also world travelers and have me purchase the pro feature again.
Previously Purchased Old App, Not Repurchasing in New
by TransRapid on 2017/11/24 17:11
Offers a + version which is paid, then makes it unavailable to download and tries to charge you twice by IAP in this version. Other developers in a similar situation have given the + features in the unified version if you already purchased them in the standalone +. NOT THESE GUYS! *Reply to developer response. Thanks for the reply, but that’s entirely not the case. I can’t access the pro features I paid for. I tried restoring purchases but your team must have changed the list of purchases available, removing the option I had paid for, even if it was recreated; as my purchases which do show in iTunes cannot be restored in your app.
So disappointed
by AyanaJean on 2019/11/23 15:21
I used to swear by this app, I found myself using it more than google translate. I live and travel a rod roughy 9 months straight out of very year so I always need help with translation. The app was very handy and had features that I loved so much I’d recommend the app to every friend I have. Now, however, the translations are ALWAYS wrong. The widget copy/paste feature is awful as well and customer service was no help in trying to solve the problem. Customer service tried to suggest that I had done something to mess with the settings in my app, and that is why it wasn’t working. I’ve never changed my settings or the way that I use the app, it’s 100% the developers problem and I’m beyond disappointed that this has gone on for so long. It’s been months that this has been happening and it doesn’t appear that they’re going to fix it.
Beware!
by ajc 7 on 2018/10/31 16:23
I initially would have rated this app higher. I bought it some time ago and used it, then paid to purchase the Premium version. Now when I try to use it I cannot access the app. Instead I get a drop down menu pushing the purchase of the “Pro” version for $4.99/month. There is a note that says “ restore purchases” which I assumed would restore my already paid for “Premium” version. It does not! Instead the buy- the- Pro version drop down menu continues and I cannot access the Premium version. I have contacted developer on various occasions about the problem. They tell that yes I have the Premium version but they do nothing to give me access to it. The buy- the- Pro at $4.99 that is automatically renewable forever continues. Beware of what your are getting into with this app!
Poor translations when it works
by NonParloItaliano on 2020/04/27 08:39
I am using this app to translate from Italian to English and 1/3 times it won’t translate the word at all, instead it just repeats the same word I typed in English in the Italian box. I’m typing things like “lemon cake recipe” and “woke up” that got zero translation. It also shows me a list of the English verb conjugations not the Italian ones. It seems more like a basic dictionary than a smart translator. I checked my settings to confirm it understands I know English and am learning Italian - all the settings are right. It’s also no longer working with my microphone and I’ve had the app three weeks - just enough time for me to have paid for it. This is very disappointing for the price. I would recommend looking for another app if you want to translate anything complex like a recipe :)
Limited offline functionality, and inaccurate
by Bodiddly21 on 2018/07/29 13:00
I bought this app, to have short, off-line exchanges in Japanese. It has only confused those with whom I have attempted to converse. The app is befuddled by plural nouns, verbs in past or future tense, commas, and many simple words, such as triple. Sentences are re-arranged, often rendering the opposite meaning. In order to say anything, I have to repeatedly translate my statement or question from English to Japanese, and back again, tweaking and simplifying it each time. To make matters worse, many of the most attractive features do not function without an internet connection, and voice translations are sent to Apple. They do not need any of my biometric data. In short, this app is useless to me, and the subscription based model makes it expensive. I do not recommend it.
They are stealing from us.
by Jolizkem on 2018/04/23 23:53
I’ve bought this app the pro version long time ago, and it was like 3.99 and now the change the price and I can’t use the pro version because they trying to charge me 4.99 a month. Why? If I’ve already or purchased the pro version, it’s is fair? If you guys changed the prices that’s not our problems, us who bought the pro version when it was cheaper have the right to have all the benefits of the pro version because that’s what we paid for long time ago. How you guys think we’re gonna trust you? We can’t, we won’t. That’s stealing and forcing people to pay 2 times for something already pay. How’s is that you can’t find my account? You guys have everything on file, but is not convenient for you guys to find my previous purchase because a y’all want me to pay another time.👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽
