Could not perform basic Spanish-English translation.
Not free

Only 3 day free, and not better then free google translator.
Rip off
by Brooklyn Farmer on 2020/01/18 22:15
Used the app for a short period of time and tried to cancel app several times and the company continues to charge my credit card without my authorization. I emailed the company 2 times and they make it very difficult to figure out how to cancel the subscription, so they can keep charging you. Stay away!!!

by Lily8975 on 2020/01/16 15:10
This app makes its money by tricking people into thinking it’s a free download but when you download you’re automatically subscribed for an annual subscription that costs about $40. When you ask for a refund you won’t get it.

Free version
by Rfarley77 on 2020/01/11 08:17
I didn’t pay the $6.99 per month which gives you more but so far it’s a pretty good app. There’s things that could be better but like I said, there’s a bunch more you’d get more.

Subscription swapping app
by WMarxist on 2019/12/31 08:37
I don’t write this type of review. I usually am applauding devs when others don’t. Not here. I agreed to a month to month subscription. One month later I find the subscription charged for a year. I own up if I make those type of mistakes and pay the piper. This is crap. Boot this app. Refund people.

Deleted after 5 minutes
by Alissa Marie on 2019/12/24 19:30
Can’t stand it! The moment you open it and every time you attempt to use the app after that, it harasses you to pay for a trial. The app is very confusing to use. It’s inaccurate and can’t translate a good amount of words / phrases. No idea how this has more than a 3 star rating. Absolutely horrible and a waste of time.
Mediocre at best

Subscription Fee beware
by vincynick on 2019/12/21 12:37
Didn’t realize that this app automatically charge you $39. for subscription without any notice. I just tried it and used it once, then bam $39. fee. This is crazy.

Wrong translations
by emberburns on 2019/12/18 04:42
This app has very wrong translations. I used it for Kurdish and Welsh. The Welsh translations were completely wrong. There are way better apps out there with the correct translations and pronunciations
HORRIBLE
by NIAH R. on 2019/12/17 19:07
I downloaded this app thinking that it was free, but then woke up to a $39.99 charge to my bank account that I DID NOT authorize. I could maybe see if the charged me like $3-5 but $40? No ma’am, make sure you read the fine print guys!

This is a trap. They will charge you automatically after a free session without any announcement. Its sad how people trying to steal your money in this way.
Not worth it
by Conduit6 on 2019/12/14 12:49
Absolute trash. No explanation once the app is downloaded and only gives you 7-8 translations before it forces the “buy premium now” page back up. Use google translate or the other one on top. There’s a reason this one is third on search list.

Used to be one of my favorite apps

There must have been a pretty radical update. This used to be my favorite app. Easy to use, intuitive, simple. Not any more. And as I try and figure it out, “upgrade to premium adds keep popping up over and over and over and over...

Always one star
by tomacsh on 2019/12/11 09:00
Could not use. If it’s a free trial do not ask to OK an in-app purchase then say it can be cancelled anytime after the supposed free trial. Any app that does this doesn’t deserve more than 1 star even if it’s the greatest app ever, I’d give it 0 stars if I could. It’s an easy fix, give it a 1 month free trial then ask for in-app purchase after or put in ads.

Shady billing of almost $100 a year
by noshitaloud on 2019/12/09 23:11
I was paying for this app at a monthly basis without it being super clear, I was under the impression that this was a one time transaction of $7 to purchase the app. Be aware!

Well driving to the airport a bump in the road literally deleted my whole history. Was planning on using that for my trip to France. Very inconvenient as there should be a way to either a retrieve it or make it not that easy to delete by just pulling it up and if it bounces you lose everything
Just imagine...
by SirGeorge8600 on 2019/11/26 05:02
Imagine if I sold you a product, you paid full price, and happily went home with your new purchase that now rightfully belongs to you. Years later I randomly show up at your doorstep and claim that the money you paid years ago was now worthless and you had to now pay me monthly in order to keep this product. If you say no, I will force myself into your house and take your product away. That’s exactly what happened here. I paid good money for the premium version of this app a couple years ago and now it won’t work at all (just gives an error message) without a monthly subscription. How this isn’t fraud and unethical is beyond me. If they’re willing to do this, they’re probably willing to randomly jack up your monthly subscription or whatever other unethical money-grabbing schemes they have up their sleeves. Stay away unless you want your money and right to a product stolen like me. These people should be sued in court.

Purchased Before And Have To Subscribe
by SweetBBW63 on 2019/11/24 01:32
I had purchased this app about two years ago and then when I returned back to an iPhone I went to get this program again and saw that it was a monthly subscription. Every time I try to open it up it prompts me to purchase a subscription and I did purchase a subscription about five days ago and I’m going to be billed again in December but every time I open it up it tells me I need to pay and then when I clicked on the link to restore past purchases, I see now that it has a pending order and so I would advise anyone who wants to get this app to think twice about it or else you may be double charged and I find it upsetting that I paid about $30 for this a few years ago but now I have to pay for it every month. It is a very good app and I do a lot of world travel and it is quite accurate and having a voice that will offer you the correct punctuation is a plus and that is why I gave it to stars otherwise I would give it zero for the way that it continues to ask me to pay
DO NOT BUY
by Sniper lord 927492 on 2019/11/24 01:02
Not a single word is right. Your lucky to even get a solid sentence when translating. Your co-workers will laugh at you when speaking off of this app. As a bilingual, I can say that your better off using google translator. It’s barely any better than this app but, Atleast your not paying stupid amounts of money to look stupid.

I’ve literally been getting robbed for over a year for 7$ a month for renewal services? I’ve already took this payment off my card bc I thought someone hacked it. And I recently saw on addd charge from iTunes witch is something ill never spend money on. But somehow these payments are back. And I never set up this “Renewal Fee” I actually don’t even have the app. I deleted it like a year ago.

Get Google Translate it’s better
by Coolboyryan70 on 2019/11/09 18:09
Why would people rate 5 star I don’t understand. 5 stars has the most votes. 1 should be the most votes. And languages are wrong on Speak & Translate. And plus Speak & Translate Only has English and 18 more languages And Google Translate has English and 59 languages. So what do you think, Google Translate is better than Speak & Translate, So get Google Translate it’s more better, Sincerely, Landon

App is paid, not free. Deceptive marketing
by DjMethod on 2019/11/07 18:44
The app is not marketed as a paid app, so they can get you to download it. Then once it’s downloaded, you can’t do *anything* on the app without signing up for a trial. They are hoping you can download the “free” app, forget about the trial, and get your money for months before you realize it. It‘s a deceptive and dishonest tactic. 1 Star.
Only lets you translate 10 times before...
by Iron_Man_Lives on 2019/11/06 06:37
This app lets you use the voice translation exactly 10 times. After that, it tells you you have to pay them $7 a month or $40 a year to use it. If you’re looking for a free or cheap translator to help you study a new language or communicate well, this isn’t your app. It’s decent for a translator. The translations aren’t perfect and you have to speak very well enunciated for it to pick up, but it does give you an understanding of what the other person is saying. You might consider buying it for a one time fee of $5.99 or something like that, but for the price I definitely do not recommend.
Spam
by Hates grocery shopping on 2019/11/06 05:25
This app asked for my email address as apps often do, but now I am getting so much spam. Spam like dating emails and male enhancement emails and diabetes emails. I would caution you not to download this app and not to use your real email address.
Not much help

Only lets you do a few translations
by dihcuhe on 2019/11/01 21:58
Only lets you do a few translations, once you do a few then when ever you tap on the speak button it tells you to subscribe to monthly payment.

Terrible. Get Google Translate instead. It’s so much better.
by 〘ᏕƳǤ〙 on 2019/10/25 20:12
I also think that it’s stupid to pay more just to use it. Stop doing this and maybe you’ll get 5 stars from people. 🙄 And the translation is terrible. If I could give no stars I would.

Trade offs
by -tungsten75- on 2019/10/12 04:08
Ok, so in general this app is pretty good. It lets you translate into more languages than Google Translate, and isn’t that inaccurate at translation. The only thing is that would you rather have a daily transation limit, or pay $20 for a few more languages than Google Translate? I get it, you guys are trying to make money, but maybe considering adding more languages and other features to make it worth the price in the full version. To be honest, this isn’t that bad. Oh also one other thing, I feel as if you guys are taking Google Translate and adding some extra languages, because for all of the languages in Google Translate, it says it was translated via Google Translate. No worries, this isn’t that bad and has a wide language variety. Thank you. -Winston H.

LOVE IT
by Boycott101 on 2019/02/02 16:44
I purchased the app for a year. It works great some words are off but, u can get the idea what is being said. I use it a lot at work. My work area is mainly Chinese and I don’t speak a word. I’m not even Chinese but,I’m able to hold a conversation with people. Once I get their dialect (mandarin) worked fine. I will say this, people need to speak slow, it helps a lot. Speaking fast makes some words unrecognizable. I noticed it wants proper dialect. And don’t ask someone who might of had a little to much too drink. I have never used the typing part of this app so I can’t give a review. But speaking into the phone works great. On more thing for the developers, when I click on the icon it keeps asking me if I want a trial but I already paid for the year. Thanks good job.
Disappointing update with Price gouging membership
by disappointedpayingcustomer on 2019/08/06 15:25
I bought this app a while ago, couple years back paid $39 or something like that. At the time it was ok, I was in Germany and needed speech to speech translator & it came with offline speech to speech translation version with many other feature that was crucial to be able to speak choppy broken German through this app that some give puzzled looks but after quick read most can decipher its meaning, but it does not understand a lot of dialects or any slang. It is a one for one translator. That sometimes does not pick up on certain accents like my thick Texas accent. But it was sub par to begin with and now i am back in Germany and pull out my expensive translator to find out all the feature I once had are now being hustled at $6,99 A month after the high initial cost of buying this app that was sub par to begin with I don’t see any extra add on features, except what I used to already get when I purchased the app. What justifies the price gouging after i already paid a premium price at the initial purchase & now I don’t get what I already paid for. Might as well use google same translation it’s free and works about the same especially if you have to be online now
Purchased Before And Have To Subscribe
by SweetBBW63 on 2019/11/24 01:32
I had purchased this app about two years ago and then when I returned back to an iPhone I went to get this program again and saw that it was a monthly subscription. Every time I try to open it up it prompts me to purchase a subscription and I did purchase a subscription about five days ago and I’m going to be billed again in December but every time I open it up it tells me I need to pay and then when I clicked on the link to restore past purchases, I see now that it has a pending order and so I would advise anyone who wants to get this app to think twice about it or else you may be double charged and I find it upsetting that I paid about $30 for this a few years ago but now I have to pay for it every month. It is a very good app and I do a lot of world travel and it is quite accurate and having a voice that will offer you the correct punctuation is a plus and that is why I gave it to stars otherwise I would give it zero for the way that it continues to ask me to pay
So helpful! An essential app for me...
by cbrown5209 on 2018/11/02 17:45
I encounter a lot of Spanish-speaking people daily and while I had taken some classes, years ago, to learn the language - I am nowhere near fluent. The main translation aspect of the app is pretty much flawless but an added bonus is that it really does help me learn and (frequently) practice the language as well, aiding in my goal of fluency. Thnx! Yo encuentro un montón de español - hablando gente diariamente y mientras tuve tomado algunos classes , hace años que , aprender el idioma - yo soy en ninguna parte cerca fluido. El principal traducción aspecto del aplicación es casi perfecto pero un adicional prima es asi de verdad hace ayuadame aprender y ( frecuentemente ) práctica el idioma así como , aiding en mi gol de fluidez. Thnx!
FRAUDULENT APP STOLE OVER $100
by killian1995 on 2019/09/06 15:10
Like many other reviewers here, I just realized that this app has been charging me for over a year for a subscription that I never agreed to. I never even used this stupid app, I deleted it within minutes of installing once I realized it was trying to get me to sign up for an premium subscription. Since then the app has been charging me $5.49 per month, which happens to be the exact same fee as my iTunes subscription so the billing notifications look identical. Apple refuses to refund me, looks like this unethical developer is refusing all the hundreds of other customers who have had the exact same experience as me. I don’t expect I will receive any refund at this point, so I will just say SHAME ON YOU. $100 is a huge amount of money for me, as it is for many people, and you have done nothing short of STEAL IT FROM OUT OF MY POCKET. I am extremely disappointed that Apple seems to be okay with this kind of fraud being perpetrated through their platform.
Just get google translate.
by Spacepersonz on 2018/05/14 19:58
I don't understand why someone would rate this app 5 stars. I have a few problems with this that I saw many other people had as well. 1: Translations I went to Japan (and I speak a little Japanese so I used this app) and I noticed that some translations seemed weird. For example, I asked someone where the bathroom was and the translation to English said; "the bathroom is in the room" so you need to fix the translations. 2: Pop up ads They are everywhere you click. When I try to type something in, it shows a 30 second pop up ad (that is usually grammarly coincidentally) and it messed up my text. Sometimes it even translate what I wrote, with is usually 3-4 words. So, I understand you want to make money, but get rid of the pop up ads. 3: The "Premium scam" A lot of people have been scammed with the premium feature. Sadly, one including me. I bought this feature and when I re-opened the app, it was gone. So, I unsubscribed from the feature and bout it again. This time, it said I already have it. So I can't get it again. I had to end up ending my credit card so the payments would stop. So, in conclusion, just use google translate. It is free, and you don't need to worry about pop up ads or any translation problems. Hope this was helpful for people just getting this app.
Wouldn’t recommend
by Yomommasougly on 2019/03/30 01:18
I bought this to use at work. I am a nurse and thought this would come in handy. Every patient I’ve tried to use this with has not been able to under stand what the translation is saying. I reached out to the company after two days and asked how I could cancel my subscription and they never got back to me. I had assumed that meant they deactivated my account for me but that was not the case. Instead they drained my account!!😡 would not recommend use google translate. This app isn’t even easy to use. I took my a lot of clicking to figure out how to switch languages and I considered myself teach savvy. Don’t buy, waste of money. Edit**: the company responds to my post with what is on their website. Like obviously I contacted them because I couldn’t figure it out. Like the company is literally no help even when being reviewed. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY.
Trade offs
by -tungsten75- on 2019/10/12 04:08
Ok, so in general this app is pretty good. It lets you translate into more languages than Google Translate, and isn’t that inaccurate at translation. The only thing is that would you rather have a daily transation limit, or pay $20 for a few more languages than Google Translate? I get it, you guys are trying to make money, but maybe considering adding more languages and other features to make it worth the price in the full version. To be honest, this isn’t that bad. Oh also one other thing, I feel as if you guys are taking Google Translate and adding some extra languages, because for all of the languages in Google Translate, it says it was translated via Google Translate. No worries, this isn’t that bad and has a wide language variety. Thank you. -Winston H.
Mischievous!
by Mycroft's Hommie on 2018/05/17 14:55
This app was downloaded simply to view and try out compared to my other free apps, somehow it tricks you or slips into a subscription I did not want.. these traps must stop, no I cannot tell you how worth it this app is because it was limited with languages and filled with pop ups and be carful with your fingerprint button popping up, because one mistake touch.. and your lured into a subscription. I did not want a Subscription! Not figuring out apple’s new ios or whatever the reason be, they charge me and did not want to refund me.. bad Buisness ethics, I’m sorry for the negative review, but until I receive a refund, it stays because I did not want a subscription. No matter what the case may be, whether you want to try out the app or test it.. be careful! P.S. Please return my wrongfully taken money!
I’ve been using this app for months now.....
by TarterCarter on 2019/03/23 16:16
I’m sick of it. I literally use it everyday when there’s something I really need to explain to my girlfriend. The problem is when it goes to translate it hangs up. I can be in the middle of telling her something very important and it just sits there.... hung. The translator “button” you press just spins and it doesn’t return a translation. Why don’t free translators do this? So I have to kill the app and reopen. Sometimes I have to do that a few times before I can get it to cooperate. I have been doing automatic updates, so I know I’m at the latest version. I tricked myself into thinking that a paid app would ENSURE that it would ease and speed up the translation process on a day to day basis. If I keep using this trash, I’ll end up throwing my phone through the wall. I’m done with it. WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME. IT NEVER IMPROVED!!!!!!!
App ruined.
by Kingjeremythewicked on 2018/06/21 05:03
The best translate app now wants to rob you with a monthly premium. I’m sad and mad at the same time. This use to be worth every penny now it’s just trying to rob you blind. (Hey developer when all apps on computers and phones start charging months (no one will use them)) greed is going to ruin you. And the best part is the developers tried to respond with monthly fees will help you crap... You only want a monthly fee now years later because you can't sell your app . I'm so disappointed in you. So they changed their response so I’ll add this. Once again the developer tries to lie and say month subscriptions are a way to save money. So let’s do the math.... Pay a one time fee let’s say $10usd v pay $5 per month. Now you keep the app like all other apps on my phone in definitely.... after 2 months I am not saving a dime and the developer is making money off of a program that I already paid for. As I said before, greedy is what you are, you are not evolving you are devolving this product and I’m not going to forgive you. You want to tell me I’m saving money... yes I’ll save money but not wasting it on this good for nothing monthly fee. ( btw there’s a 15$ translator that does more than this app ever will. )
It’s Good But.......
by Jaden Guardanapo on 2018/06/09 13:55
I really like this app and how it functions, but I don’t really like how there is a daily limit. I get it you need money so you can stay in business or something like that, but I can’t understand people now that I’m in America. What I mean is, I live in Portugal and I don’t really know English very well so I used the app to help me write this whole thing and boom it tells me the daily limit has been reached so now I can’t really communicate with them. And you may be asking “if it already ran out then why are you still typing this”, and the awnser to that is because this is the exact thing In copied and pasted. I hope you can make the daily limit maybe a little more. Thank you ~Alexis Guardanapo
This doesn’t work.
by fhfjsnv on 2018/07/07 15:46
Don’t get this app. It works the same as google translate, and we all know google translate does not work. The ad is fake. I tried speaking and translating, and when I switched back, it said the same exact thing in the other language. It also didn’t translate correctly. Don’t get this app. It’s the same as google translate. Why do people rate this 5 stars? It’s not worth 5 stars. Also, I hate the pop up ads. When you’re in a conversation, there will be an ad that interrupts translation. I doubt people will understand what I’m saying if I translate through text OR voice. This app is bad, NOT worth 4 stars. I’m pretty convinced that the developer message is just a bot or automatically responding to each and every message. You can’t convince me to reinstall the app. I’m not using it ever again.
Not intuitive.
by pablopicoso on 2018/02/06 15:23
Too many steps involved when you want to just do a quick translation. You’re buttons to translate are not necessary to be so big. A simple switch button between the flags is enough to switch the direction of the translation. That is what the arrows between the flags is for. Just like any map app, you switch there. You have a redundancy to enter text. One flag or the other. So now let’s say I don’t want to translate from English to Italian. How do you choose another language? A tiny nondescript button lets you do that. You’re only looking at it as if I’m in their country so one language access is fine but I live in NYC. Anyone from any language could be my next need for a translation. You buried the alternate language choices.
Do not purchase this BS app
by no one 1234567 on 2019/05/12 16:17
I am trying to fix the issue I have with this app with the support team, and I am getting nowhere for a month now. Wen I purchased the app it had an option to speak and translate from Bulgarian to English. I did the huge mistake to subscribe and pay for one year 39$ and this option stopped working. It keeps giving me a message that I am offline and the voice option is not available, just the write. I purchased it so I can use the speak and translate. I contacted the support, they usually reply in a week after your email and they are sending me info to cancel. Even if I do it cancelled after the subscription period of one year. So basically I spent 39$ for something that does not work, no one addressed my question about this offline bs, and it is totally waste of money
Too many adds and is embarrassing
by ZebraCat1519 on 2018/04/12 00:58
I was in France for a week and none of my family knew French. So I got this app while in France to help but in the middle of a conversation with someone, adds would pop up and half of my translations were wasted on apologizing to the person for the add. And then I ran out of translations, once more, while in the middle of the conversation. And we couldn't understand each other. This app has embarrassed me so much that I seriously believe that it should either be taken off the App Store or just remove the stupid premium option. No one is going to pay $20 a year for something this small and sometimes even relatively useless. Also their rating reply system is just a bot. They're all the same replays to similar complaints and problems.
Never meant to purchase monthly subscription
by Joni35209 on 2018/09/11 16:57
I may have used this app one time several months ago in europe thinking I had downloaded a free version but I’ve been charged $7 per month for several months. I finally canceled my subscription. I’ve never accidentally ordered an app subscription so I am suspicious that it was without my consent. I’d like to get a full refund. Also, I got an email a couple of months ago that the charge had failed because I had to replace my credit card and so I thought these charges would finally discontinue but you somehow got my new credit card number???? I did Enter my new card to continue my iCloud monthly $0.99 subscription. I did not authorize this app on my new card and I didn’t ever intentionally authorize a monthly recurring charge.
The Best translation app I have tried
by CBMann on 2019/06/13 06:28
I sat down at a table of only Japanese speaking people recently. I scrambled to find a way to communicate. When I found the speech to speech aspect of this app, the evening transformed and became one of the best memories I will ever have. This app breaks down barriers between people Awesome!! I wish there was a way to copy text from a text message in a different language and paste into this app for translation . Like Google translate. So i find myself using both apps to communicate. If there is a way to do this in this app, please let me know
Why would we Subscribe to an app that cost $20?
by Josh veto on 2018/01/21 16:31
I understand this app is very useful. Our use it almost every day at work. I work in the hospital so he’s going to translate Spanish and Arabic and creel. But for $20 a year it is not worth it. Now if it was 10 yes I would be paying in an instant for the premium. The pop ups are annoying and the worst part is it uses some of your translations and doesn’t let you finish typing them because the commercial/add cut you off and makes you wait 30 seconds. I believe this app could go if our way. But the price range for it’s a little absurd. I would like for y’all to rethink the price range. Maybe offer different packages but 20 bucks to just translate isn’t a good deal.
To many pop up ads
by Al@a2 on 2017/12/14 19:44
UPDATE: the app still has occasional pop-ups but that’s expected of a free app. It works good. I have used this app for about 6 months. My wife is Chinese and knows some English but sometimes words, phrases or topics need some explaining or more details. The apps always had ad pop-ups but recently the pop-ups come every time I begin to write something. Not only distracting but requires me to re-type what I was writing because the pop-up came have a sentence in.
Did not work, and speak to translate is only available WITH internet
by Mommap13 on 2018/12/09 19:31
So I bought this thinking it’d be perfect for my overseas trip. My first issue is that it did not provide accurate translations, often not even close! And many times the words were not even recognized. This was specifically a big issue for german to English translation. I had similar issues with French to English but not quite as much. My second issue is that I assumed you could do speak to translate without internet, but nope, only works with internet or data. Which if you’re traveling in another country and trying to speak to people in the street, it won’t work. Total waste of money, don’t buy! Just use google translate instead, it worked better, and it’s free
Could be better
by JoDayne on 2019/08/10 19:55
Ok, so I downloaded this app because I was in the nail salon getting my nails done and the lady messed up my nail twice and I complained. Usually I’m quiet but after waiting an hour and a half I was frustrated this was what I waited so long for. She began speaking Chinese (I’m assuming) so I remembered hearing about this app and downloaded it. WHAT A WASTE OF TIME. If you don’t know the language the person is speaking it’s of no use. Only for texts. I guess most people would like it but it was of no use to me. I already use google translate for translating texts so I was very disappointed. If they added an auto speech detector then that would be great and FIVE STARS. For now I’ll just give two because I’m still in my feelings. Lol.
I thought this would have been better
by stlimthesnake on 2018/09/14 04:21
I actually thought this app would’ve been good. I was wrong. I really like the idea of speaking and translating but my problem is the app’s listening. Whenever I say something in English, the translator always change some words make my sentence sound weird. I tried using this app to talk to one of my friends who only speaks Vietnamese, but when I spoke English, the app changed the end of my sentence to sound weird. I even tested this out by getting one of my friends to speak Vietnamese into it. He said “hello hello”, but the app thought he said “hello bottles”. Again like I said, this app could’ve been good but the listening skills of the app defiantly needs more work.
The pop-ups HAVE TO GO
by Aus4St on 2017/11/24 15:52
This app is very handy and easy to use, but the free version has become a NIGHTMARE due to the pop-up ads. Literally every time you launch the app it will send a delayed pop-up that usually interrupts your typing, automatically sending whatever you have typed in the text field to that point. It is especially annoying because you only get a set amount of translations per day, and half of them get wasted on the half-filled sentences that are sent once the ads pop onto your screen. There are plenty of other free apps out there that may not be as easy to use, but at least they won’t harass you every time you open the program!!
Love the App but too much for small usage
by redheama on 2018/02/28 23:11
I think you should have 2 types of pricing- one by the monthly/quarterly/annually, the other by the usage- 5 translations for each $1.00 not to exceed monthly fee. Nothing for months with no usage. I canceled my free subscription because I would probably use this once or twice a month and not every month. Even if you did no monthly fee if not used, I might consider but I’d probably use free translation sites first. I’d definitely do it if 5 translations for $1.09 not to exceed $3.99 per month, and only on months used.
Shyster
by Inarion on 2018/03/29 13:34
In app purchase that kicks in as soon as you activate the free trial and charges you effing immediately, along with a message that you will be charged again in 3 days. These people can shove it. Apparently they do not understand the effing concept of free trial. I may ave purchased the service. Instead I immediately cancelled the subscription and removed the offending app from my phone. Making a note of the company... Will be discussing this with the State Attorney General’s office as well. Interstate fraud is serious business. Edit: I was charged immediately following signing up for the “free” trial. You can have the $3+. I deleted the app and will never download an app produced by this company again. Dear Bruce, You’ve purchased the following subscription with a 3 days free trial: Subscription Translator: No Ads & Limits App Speak & Translate - Translator Content Provider IAC Search & Media Europe Ltd. Date of Purchase Mar 23, 2018 Trial Duration 3 days Trial Price Free Price $4.99/month Payment Method Visa .... 6687 You won’t be charged for your free trial. Once it ends, your subscription will renew at $4.99 unless you cancel by Mar 25, 2018.
Great app and Customer Service
by Newcomb12345890 on 2018/08/15 02:28
I did enjoy the app. It translated properly. I didn’t really need it and was testing it out for a family member to show how this worked. I didn’t like that I had to subscribe to test it out but I did like the quick response back from the customer service that explained how to cancel the subscription. While I personally don’t need this app, I find it very easy to use and accurate. I highly recommend it.
Only lets you translate 10 times before...
by Iron_Man_Lives on 2019/11/06 06:37
This app lets you use the voice translation exactly 10 times. After that, it tells you you have to pay them $7 a month or $40 a year to use it. If you’re looking for a free or cheap translator to help you study a new language or communicate well, this isn’t your app. It’s decent for a translator. The translations aren’t perfect and you have to speak very well enunciated for it to pick up, but it does give you an understanding of what the other person is saying. You might consider buying it for a one time fee of $5.99 or something like that, but for the price I definitely do not recommend.
Robbed by this app and apple
by wyer on 2019/08/14 13:31
Update: Apple is refunding, but it looks like they may be trying to only refund price of app and not tax. I’ll call them again if tax is not also refunded. I was trying to deal with another subscription when this app popped up unsolicited causing me to inadvertently purchase an annual subscription I did not want. I immediately hit the unsubscribe button to no avail. I contacted app developers and was redirected to apple. Apple denied refund . This unintended purchase wiped out balance of my birthday gift card plus charged $20. To my AE. I will dispute the $20. with AE and recover that. I won’t get my birthday gift card money back but that's okay. For my birthday next year I will be asking for the newest Galaxy. I’m done with Apple.
Boooooooooo. Horrible
by hibs99 on 2019/02/16 15:27
Paid for premium and am still getting hit with the purchase premium notifications and other pop ups. I’ve used it a handful of times and 4 out of 5 times it doesn’t translate what I’m saying. For example I was using it to translate information about a kitchen remodel project to the nice worker who only speaks Spanish and the translation said something along the likes of “get drunk” and hinged instead of “did you know we are changing the cabinet hinges?” So once again, there are better apps than this for translation. My advise is you should seriously look at another. This app needs some work in my opinion.
Very useful
by fireball⚠️ on 2017/11/03 00:28
I am going to Italy soon and this will come in handy while talking to waiters and a lot of tour events and guides .I will be using this everyday in Italy.i think you should continue making apps . I think you should entente a game that also teaches you how to speak the language instead of using an app to translate for yourself.i like the way you're going with this app.😀👍🏻🇭🇺
3 day trial
by aDierf807 on 2018/02/28 18:49
I signed up for a three-day trial, it’s okay but I find the offline feature good but not as as helpful as it does not allow you to speak/listen/use the microphone just text which is not useful when you are traveling international, you have to have hook to a WiFi or have you roaming data. Now that I tried it and figured it’s not for me, I wanna cancel and make sure I don’t get charge. How do I do that? Because there is no unsubscribe button anywhere in the settings that I could see. Is deleting the app good enough? Please advise.
DO NOT GET THIS APP
by Vicky is da bomb on 2018/01/06 22:35
I guess this app is okay by itself, but many things are wrong. The first thing that really bothered me is that I couldn't even hold a proper conversation. I was barely getting into one and then it said, "limit of translation for today". That was terrible! I had barely said anything at all! Another thing that was bad is that their translating accuracy, was not good. I speak Spanish so I know this. I typed, "merry Christmas mommy" and it answered, "Feliz Mami de navidad". If you speak Spanish, you would know that that is very wrong. Another thing that was terrible is there was WAY to many adds. I think this app is really bad and you should not get it. But hey, do what you want.
Just imagine...
by SirGeorge8600 on 2019/11/26 05:02
Imagine if I sold you a product, you paid full price, and happily went home with your new purchase that now rightfully belongs to you. Years later I randomly show up at your doorstep and claim that the money you paid years ago was now worthless and you had to now pay me monthly in order to keep this product. If you say no, I will force myself into your house and take your product away. That’s exactly what happened here. I paid good money for the premium version of this app a couple years ago and now it won’t work at all (just gives an error message) without a monthly subscription. How this isn’t fraud and unethical is beyond me. If they’re willing to do this, they’re probably willing to randomly jack up your monthly subscription or whatever other unethical money-grabbing schemes they have up their sleeves. Stay away unless you want your money and right to a product stolen like me. These people should be sued in court.
This app is only worth a 2 star rating..
by .||REVIEWS||. on 2018/05/22 01:32
I thought it was an amazing app after I downloaded it, but then after a few translations, the “daily limit of translations” had been reached and I started raging. Why do you have to pay to get unlimited translations? Apps, like google translate, which give you an unlimited amount of translations for FREE, definitely are apps worth downloading. I think you would definitely get more people to pay for the “speak and translate premium” if there were an unlimited amount of translations. Besides that, the app is pretty good.
Took me about 5 seconds to delete it
by nineteenth on 2018/08/09 16:20
What junk! This app starts up asking you several times to upgrade, then to allow notifications, then again to upgrade. Ads everywhere. I did not even make it as far as a single translation before trashing it. Added after developer response: Even if you are supporting the app with ads, if I try it and value it, I will definitely upgrade as I support paid apps and good developers. However, if an app — like this one — does not even let me try ANYTHING while still bombarding me with ads and popups, then there is no chance of that.
TERRIBLE BECAUSE OF ADS
by Ben Zyb on 2018/04/21 20:55
This app seemed like a great tool- For about the first sentence I used to translate. After that, I would be midway through a sentence after having the app open for about 20 seconds and an ad would pop up, clearing everything you just said and not letting you resume it. With the free version, you will get at least 4-5 ads per minute. The developers of this app are just money greeds who want to frustrate you to the point where you will pay a ridiculous amount for the premium version. Id much rather take the time to type everything into google translate for free. Not worth it at all
Crashed before I could use it
by NKhamsa620 on 2019/03/28 22:00
Sounds helpful because it’s integrated w iCloud, I don’t see Lao/Laotian so it’s not helpful for me, personally. I’m surprised at the languages that ARE available, I know many Laotian people and there’s no Rosetta Stone or any other popular language software for it. I’ve found a few, very limited apps that aren’t super useful. The pronunciation always varies, as well. It’s not an easy language to study because of that. Closest to Lao is Thai, it too, has many limitations. What’s worse is that there’s many “slang” words you’ll only learn speaking with native speakers. Maybe somebody will read this and be inspired, lol.

Very sad. I was paying without knowing
by Ceni2000 on 2019/10/01 22:38
I don’t have a problem with the app. I am upset because the app is not clear about the fact that you are going to pay for a monthly subscription, and not one only payment for the use of the app. I end up paying more than 6 months of a subscription before I realized that they have charged me 42 dollars, instead of the 7 dollars I thought was the cost of the app. And I couldn’t get a refund. It was even impossible to cancel the subscription inside the app. I had to do it in the App Store configuration option. Very disappointed.
Glitchy & difficult
by Debt Free Is Less Stress on 2018/09/10 00:26
Haven’t had much success in navigating the glitchy & difficult app, one minute it won’t do anything & a few minutes later it will actually let you enter a word for translation. Even the directions in the app, don’t seem to work properly, like clearing history as just one example. If I can’t get it to work in free mode, I’m sure not paying for it, especially since it’s per device, instead of just buying it at once for all my devices or even family sharing.
Not translating correctly
by Scrupulous 2016 on 2019/04/16 22:43
I was so disappointed because it doesn’t give right translation and cannot Check if the translation is right. Unlike the google translate that is free, you can check first if the word you want to translate is correct or not and if not you can redo it and change to nearest word you want to be translated. Also, it doesn’t pick up the conversation always put dpo. I missed a lot of the conversation and if even get the conversation , the translation doesn’t make sense. Overall review failed
Basically Stealing😡
by Smart Working Woman on 2017/11/23 06:41
I used the app while I was in China. Many words didn't come out right but it helped a lot. I used up all the (free) translation so I upgraded to premium to keep using it. Once I left China I deleted the app. I noticed in my iCloud and bank. That I am still being charged for a service that I deleted and no longer use. I downloaded the app again and checked to see if it's a way to take it off. There is not. There is no button or way for you to take the premium off. FREE MONEY FOR THE APP DEVELOPERS AND A RIP OFF FOR REGULAR PEOPLE.
Do not download!
by charity12344321 on 2019/01/08 18:40
I downloaded this FREE app without any warning that it’s going to automatically set you up for a subscription and you don’t find out about it until you are charged. I downloaded this to help us communicate with our newly adopted 6 year old. First it didn’t work at all we tried using it for several days and finally deleted it. And now a month later I get a random charge and I had to do a lot of digging to first find out where this charge came from and second how to cancel the subscription. So do yourself a favor and don’t even download it.

This Translator is only effective for very simple translations ! ! ! On more important explanations and descriptions it makes MANY mistakes including the Gender of the person or persons you are referring to in your translations ! ! ! I have asked the company on 8 separate occasions to make corrections to improve their service; However, they have not corrected ANY of the things that needed to be corrected ! ! If President Trump were to use this Translator to communicate with other World Leaders we could very possibly be in a World War by now ! ! Unhappy User ! !
This App
by psychedelhippie on 2018/12/12 03:48
This app would be amazing if it didn’t crash all the time and have nothing but none stop ads interrupting you when you are trying to type in or speak words into the mic so you can translate. Touch base on the whole crashing thing, it honestly crashes for no bloody reason. Like every single chance it gets it will crash. Also, there isn’t really an option for just free translations. It constantly wants you to upgrade to premium. I really want to give it a 5 stars but these issues need to be fixed before getting 5 stars.
CAREFUL!!! SCAM!!!
by Katierinka on 2018/07/13 04:42
Do not download! This app somehow tricked me into paying $45 for their yearly subscription immediately upon downloading it. There’s no way to get a refund from Apple and their support will just brush you off saying they have no access to your account. What’s worse, it cannot even do it’s main function, which is voice translations. I tried using it to translate from Chinese into English and it comes up with some nonsense. Attention! If you are like me and got tricked into paying them, make sure you go into your phone’s settings and unsubscribe, otherwise this “translator” will keep charging you a hefty sum for nothing. I am so angry at myself for being scammed so easily!😡 UPDATE: Turns out my husband also got scammed into paying for this useless app. Now his account got charged after the trial period. How is that even possible? Doesn’t it say you have family sharing?!
Asking for subscription fee
by Tej pr on 2019/04/11 19:20
One time I download this application as trail version and deleted the application within an hours but still trying to charge my account, the good thing is I had canceled my credit card couple of month before so it is not able to charged my account but still I saw notification says payment is fail when this provider trying to charge my account. There is clearly written there will no charge if you are not using or not like this app with in a trail window. Please fix this problem
Unethical
by Vy131492 on 2019/08/11 17:56
After you start a free trial and plan, the subscription will automatically renew without confirming with you first and you get charge. You don’t even get to choose if you want to get a monthly, 3 month or yearly subscription. They chose the one that will cost you the most. This is the first time that I’ve had this happen to me. Update: As they say it’s normal. It is not normal. I downloaded many apps before and they always give you a warning that your trial is about to end or they let you know that you need to pay to continue the app.

Rip off
by Brooklyn Farmer on 2020/01/18 22:15
Used the app for a short period of time and tried to cancel app several times and the company continues to charge my credit card without my authorization. I emailed the company 2 times and they make it very difficult to figure out how to cancel the subscription, so they can keep charging you. Stay away!!!

by Lily8975 on 2020/01/16 15:10
This app makes its money by tricking people into thinking it’s a free download but when you download you’re automatically subscribed for an annual subscription that costs about $40. When you ask for a refund you won’t get it.

by Rfarley77 on 2020/01/11 08:17
I didn’t pay the $6.99 per month which gives you more but so far it’s a pretty good app. There’s things that could be better but like I said, there’s a bunch more you’d get more.

Subscription swapping app
by WMarxist on 2019/12/31 08:37
I don’t write this type of review. I usually am applauding devs when others don’t. Not here. I agreed to a month to month subscription. One month later I find the subscription charged for a year. I own up if I make those type of mistakes and pay the piper. This is crap. Boot this app. Refund people.

Deleted after 5 minutes
by Alissa Marie on 2019/12/24 19:30
Can’t stand it! The moment you open it and every time you attempt to use the app after that, it harasses you to pay for a trial. The app is very confusing to use. It’s inaccurate and can’t translate a good amount of words / phrases. No idea how this has more than a 3 star rating. Absolutely horrible and a waste of time.
Mediocre at best

Subscription Fee beware

Wrong translations
by emberburns on 2019/12/18 04:42
This app has very wrong translations. I used it for Kurdish and Welsh. The Welsh translations were completely wrong. There are way better apps out there with the correct translations and pronunciations
HORRIBLE
by NIAH R. on 2019/12/17 19:07
I downloaded this app thinking that it was free, but then woke up to a $39.99 charge to my bank account that I DID NOT authorize. I could maybe see if the charged me like $3-5 but $40? No ma’am, make sure you read the fine print guys!

This is a trap. They will charge you automatically after a free session without any announcement. Its sad how people trying to steal your money in this way.
Not worth it
by Conduit6 on 2019/12/14 12:49
Absolute trash. No explanation once the app is downloaded and only gives you 7-8 translations before it forces the “buy premium now” page back up. Use google translate or the other one on top. There’s a reason this one is third on search list.

There must have been a pretty radical update. This used to be my favorite app. Easy to use, intuitive, simple. Not any more. And as I try and figure it out, “upgrade to premium adds keep popping up over and over and over and over...

Always one star
by tomacsh on 2019/12/11 09:00
Could not use. If it’s a free trial do not ask to OK an in-app purchase then say it can be cancelled anytime after the supposed free trial. Any app that does this doesn’t deserve more than 1 star even if it’s the greatest app ever, I’d give it 0 stars if I could. It’s an easy fix, give it a 1 month free trial then ask for in-app purchase after or put in ads.

Just imagine...
by SirGeorge8600 on 2019/11/26 05:02
Imagine if I sold you a product, you paid full price, and happily went home with your new purchase that now rightfully belongs to you. Years later I randomly show up at your doorstep and claim that the money you paid years ago was now worthless and you had to now pay me monthly in order to keep this product. If you say no, I will force myself into your house and take your product away. That’s exactly what happened here. I paid good money for the premium version of this app a couple years ago and now it won’t work at all (just gives an error message) without a monthly subscription. How this isn’t fraud and unethical is beyond me. If they’re willing to do this, they’re probably willing to randomly jack up your monthly subscription or whatever other unethical money-grabbing schemes they have up their sleeves. Stay away unless you want your money and right to a product stolen like me. These people should be sued in court.
Horrible translation

Purchased Before And Have To Subscribe
by SweetBBW63 on 2019/11/24 01:32
I had purchased this app about two years ago and then when I returned back to an iPhone I went to get this program again and saw that it was a monthly subscription. Every time I try to open it up it prompts me to purchase a subscription and I did purchase a subscription about five days ago and I’m going to be billed again in December but every time I open it up it tells me I need to pay and then when I clicked on the link to restore past purchases, I see now that it has a pending order and so I would advise anyone who wants to get this app to think twice about it or else you may be double charged and I find it upsetting that I paid about $30 for this a few years ago but now I have to pay for it every month. It is a very good app and I do a lot of world travel and it is quite accurate and having a voice that will offer you the correct punctuation is a plus and that is why I gave it to stars otherwise I would give it zero for the way that it continues to ask me to pay
DO NOT BUY
by Sniper lord 927492 on 2019/11/24 01:02
Not a single word is right. Your lucky to even get a solid sentence when translating. Your co-workers will laugh at you when speaking off of this app. As a bilingual, I can say that your better off using google translator. It’s barely any better than this app but, Atleast your not paying stupid amounts of money to look stupid.

I’ve literally been getting robbed for over a year for 7$ a month for renewal services? I’ve already took this payment off my card bc I thought someone hacked it. And I recently saw on addd charge from iTunes witch is something ill never spend money on. But somehow these payments are back. And I never set up this “Renewal Fee” I actually don’t even have the app. I deleted it like a year ago.

Get Google Translate it’s better
by Coolboyryan70 on 2019/11/09 18:09
Why would people rate 5 star I don’t understand. 5 stars has the most votes. 1 should be the most votes. And languages are wrong on Speak & Translate. And plus Speak & Translate Only has English and 18 more languages And Google Translate has English and 59 languages. So what do you think, Google Translate is better than Speak & Translate, So get Google Translate it’s more better, Sincerely, Landon
Just.....dont

Translations are very shaky,takes the longest just for one word, you'd be better off just putting in the time and effort to learn the language
Mostly useless

App is paid, not free. Deceptive marketing
by DjMethod on 2019/11/07 18:44
The app is not marketed as a paid app, so they can get you to download it. Then once it’s downloaded, you can’t do *anything* on the app without signing up for a trial. They are hoping you can download the “free” app, forget about the trial, and get your money for months before you realize it. It‘s a deceptive and dishonest tactic. 1 Star.
Only lets you translate 10 times before...
by Iron_Man_Lives on 2019/11/06 06:37
This app lets you use the voice translation exactly 10 times. After that, it tells you you have to pay them $7 a month or $40 a year to use it. If you’re looking for a free or cheap translator to help you study a new language or communicate well, this isn’t your app. It’s decent for a translator. The translations aren’t perfect and you have to speak very well enunciated for it to pick up, but it does give you an understanding of what the other person is saying. You might consider buying it for a one time fee of $5.99 or something like that, but for the price I definitely do not recommend.
Spam
by Hates grocery shopping on 2019/11/06 05:25
This app asked for my email address as apps often do, but now I am getting so much spam. Spam like dating emails and male enhancement emails and diabetes emails. I would caution you not to download this app and not to use your real email address.
Not much help
by springer115 on 2019/11/02 19:00
Sorry - still needs work for Czech - English.
Only lets you do a few translations
by dihcuhe on 2019/11/01 21:58
Only lets you do a few translations, once you do a few then when ever you tap on the speak button it tells you to subscribe to monthly payment.
Horrible
by Charm-city on 2019/10/28 15:43

Terrible. Get Google Translate instead. It’s so much better.
by 〘ᏕƳǤ〙 on 2019/10/25 20:12
I also think that it’s stupid to pay more just to use it. Stop doing this and maybe you’ll get 5 stars from people. 🙄 And the translation is terrible. If I could give no stars I would.

Not easy to cancel, if even possible to cancel, during trial period. Charged my account. I plan to dispute.
Not a fan
by cizqhwixbd on 2019/10/20 19:03
You have to pay for it and you only get a 3 day trial. You can only translate Spanish and if you want to choose a different language then you have to pay for it.
No good at all
by MyungStudio on 2019/10/20 07:30
I paid $50 for a year to use this app and it’s translation was not correct. I used in Spanish, Indian and Korean and it made a lot of miscommunications. This app uses google translator. So don’t waist your money on this app.

Not user friendly
Not worth it unless you pay
by njggrjk on 2019/10/19 15:21
Not good unless you pay, there’s a lot more other options to choose from absolutely free
Horrible app; NOT user friendly at all
by ScrewThisApp101 on 2019/10/19 14:53
Purchased this app with the idea of using it to help me teach French to elementary students. There are no tabs whatsoever to indicate how the heck to use the app, or how to choose the languages you want to use. It’s such a horrible app that I want to cancel my paid subscription- but guess what? I have no idea how to do that!!!
Spanish
by Tabatha Scott on 2019/10/19 10:11
Cancel my Subscription! My Assistant, from El Salvador, could not understand the Spanish. She said it was from Spain. I didn’t realize, that there would be a problem. I thought Spanish was Spanish. I WAS WRONG!!!!!

Doesn’t voice translate offline. What is the point
Lack of offline languages for Latin America makes it worthless.

Free Microsoft & google translate better
by Home2 on 2019/10/12 21:52
I am canceling my trial I am going to Japan and was using a DK phrasebook to validate this app and BIG fail. The free Microsoft and google translate were 100% accurate with the phrasebook. Not sure how this company will stay in business when the free tools are better

Ok, so in general this app is pretty good. It lets you translate into more languages than Google Translate, and isn’t that inaccurate at translation. The only thing is that would you rather have a daily transation limit, or pay $20 for a few more languages than Google Translate? I get it, you guys are trying to make money, but maybe considering adding more languages and other features to make it worth the price in the full version. To be honest, this isn’t that bad. Oh also one other thing, I feel as if you guys are taking Google Translate and adding some extra languages, because for all of the languages in Google Translate, it says it was translated via Google Translate. No worries, this isn’t that bad and has a wide language variety. Thank you. -Winston H.

LOVE IT
by Boycott101 on 2019/02/02 16:44
I purchased the app for a year. It works great some words are off but, u can get the idea what is being said. I use it a lot at work. My work area is mainly Chinese and I don’t speak a word. I’m not even Chinese but,I’m able to hold a conversation with people. Once I get their dialect (mandarin) worked fine. I will say this, people need to speak slow, it helps a lot. Speaking fast makes some words unrecognizable. I noticed it wants proper dialect. And don’t ask someone who might of had a little to much too drink. I have never used the typing part of this app so I can’t give a review. But speaking into the phone works great. On more thing for the developers, when I click on the icon it keeps asking me if I want a trial but I already paid for the year. Thanks good job.
Disappointing update with Price gouging membership
by disappointedpayingcustomer on 2019/08/06 15:25
I bought this app a while ago, couple years back paid $39 or something like that. At the time it was ok, I was in Germany and needed speech to speech translator & it came with offline speech to speech translation version with many other feature that was crucial to be able to speak choppy broken German through this app that some give puzzled looks but after quick read most can decipher its meaning, but it does not understand a lot of dialects or any slang. It is a one for one translator. That sometimes does not pick up on certain accents like my thick Texas accent. But it was sub par to begin with and now i am back in Germany and pull out my expensive translator to find out all the feature I once had are now being hustled at $6,99 A month after the high initial cost of buying this app that was sub par to begin with I don’t see any extra add on features, except what I used to already get when I purchased the app. What justifies the price gouging after i already paid a premium price at the initial purchase & now I don’t get what I already paid for. Might as well use google same translation it’s free and works about the same especially if you have to be online now
Purchased Before And Have To Subscribe
by SweetBBW63 on 2019/11/24 01:32
I had purchased this app about two years ago and then when I returned back to an iPhone I went to get this program again and saw that it was a monthly subscription. Every time I try to open it up it prompts me to purchase a subscription and I did purchase a subscription about five days ago and I’m going to be billed again in December but every time I open it up it tells me I need to pay and then when I clicked on the link to restore past purchases, I see now that it has a pending order and so I would advise anyone who wants to get this app to think twice about it or else you may be double charged and I find it upsetting that I paid about $30 for this a few years ago but now I have to pay for it every month. It is a very good app and I do a lot of world travel and it is quite accurate and having a voice that will offer you the correct punctuation is a plus and that is why I gave it to stars otherwise I would give it zero for the way that it continues to ask me to pay
So helpful! An essential app for me...
by cbrown5209 on 2018/11/02 17:45
I encounter a lot of Spanish-speaking people daily and while I had taken some classes, years ago, to learn the language - I am nowhere near fluent. The main translation aspect of the app is pretty much flawless but an added bonus is that it really does help me learn and (frequently) practice the language as well, aiding in my goal of fluency. Thnx! Yo encuentro un montón de español - hablando gente diariamente y mientras tuve tomado algunos classes , hace años que , aprender el idioma - yo soy en ninguna parte cerca fluido. El principal traducción aspecto del aplicación es casi perfecto pero un adicional prima es asi de verdad hace ayuadame aprender y ( frecuentemente ) práctica el idioma así como , aiding en mi gol de fluidez. Thnx!
FRAUDULENT APP STOLE OVER $100
by killian1995 on 2019/09/06 15:10
Like many other reviewers here, I just realized that this app has been charging me for over a year for a subscription that I never agreed to. I never even used this stupid app, I deleted it within minutes of installing once I realized it was trying to get me to sign up for an premium subscription. Since then the app has been charging me $5.49 per month, which happens to be the exact same fee as my iTunes subscription so the billing notifications look identical. Apple refuses to refund me, looks like this unethical developer is refusing all the hundreds of other customers who have had the exact same experience as me. I don’t expect I will receive any refund at this point, so I will just say SHAME ON YOU. $100 is a huge amount of money for me, as it is for many people, and you have done nothing short of STEAL IT FROM OUT OF MY POCKET. I am extremely disappointed that Apple seems to be okay with this kind of fraud being perpetrated through their platform.
Just get google translate.
by Spacepersonz on 2018/05/14 19:58
I don't understand why someone would rate this app 5 stars. I have a few problems with this that I saw many other people had as well. 1: Translations I went to Japan (and I speak a little Japanese so I used this app) and I noticed that some translations seemed weird. For example, I asked someone where the bathroom was and the translation to English said; "the bathroom is in the room" so you need to fix the translations. 2: Pop up ads They are everywhere you click. When I try to type something in, it shows a 30 second pop up ad (that is usually grammarly coincidentally) and it messed up my text. Sometimes it even translate what I wrote, with is usually 3-4 words. So, I understand you want to make money, but get rid of the pop up ads. 3: The "Premium scam" A lot of people have been scammed with the premium feature. Sadly, one including me. I bought this feature and when I re-opened the app, it was gone. So, I unsubscribed from the feature and bout it again. This time, it said I already have it. So I can't get it again. I had to end up ending my credit card so the payments would stop. So, in conclusion, just use google translate. It is free, and you don't need to worry about pop up ads or any translation problems. Hope this was helpful for people just getting this app.
Wouldn’t recommend
by Yomommasougly on 2019/03/30 01:18
I bought this to use at work. I am a nurse and thought this would come in handy. Every patient I’ve tried to use this with has not been able to under stand what the translation is saying. I reached out to the company after two days and asked how I could cancel my subscription and they never got back to me. I had assumed that meant they deactivated my account for me but that was not the case. Instead they drained my account!!😡 would not recommend use google translate. This app isn’t even easy to use. I took my a lot of clicking to figure out how to switch languages and I considered myself teach savvy. Don’t buy, waste of money. Edit**: the company responds to my post with what is on their website. Like obviously I contacted them because I couldn’t figure it out. Like the company is literally no help even when being reviewed. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY.

Mischievous!
by Mycroft's Hommie on 2018/05/17 14:55
This app was downloaded simply to view and try out compared to my other free apps, somehow it tricks you or slips into a subscription I did not want.. these traps must stop, no I cannot tell you how worth it this app is because it was limited with languages and filled with pop ups and be carful with your fingerprint button popping up, because one mistake touch.. and your lured into a subscription. I did not want a Subscription! Not figuring out apple’s new ios or whatever the reason be, they charge me and did not want to refund me.. bad Buisness ethics, I’m sorry for the negative review, but until I receive a refund, it stays because I did not want a subscription. No matter what the case may be, whether you want to try out the app or test it.. be careful! P.S. Please return my wrongfully taken money!
I’ve been using this app for months now.....
by TarterCarter on 2019/03/23 16:16
I’m sick of it. I literally use it everyday when there’s something I really need to explain to my girlfriend. The problem is when it goes to translate it hangs up. I can be in the middle of telling her something very important and it just sits there.... hung. The translator “button” you press just spins and it doesn’t return a translation. Why don’t free translators do this? So I have to kill the app and reopen. Sometimes I have to do that a few times before I can get it to cooperate. I have been doing automatic updates, so I know I’m at the latest version. I tricked myself into thinking that a paid app would ENSURE that it would ease and speed up the translation process on a day to day basis. If I keep using this trash, I’ll end up throwing my phone through the wall. I’m done with it. WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME. IT NEVER IMPROVED!!!!!!!
App ruined.
by Kingjeremythewicked on 2018/06/21 05:03
The best translate app now wants to rob you with a monthly premium. I’m sad and mad at the same time. This use to be worth every penny now it’s just trying to rob you blind. (Hey developer when all apps on computers and phones start charging months (no one will use them)) greed is going to ruin you. And the best part is the developers tried to respond with monthly fees will help you crap... You only want a monthly fee now years later because you can't sell your app . I'm so disappointed in you. So they changed their response so I’ll add this. Once again the developer tries to lie and say month subscriptions are a way to save money. So let’s do the math.... Pay a one time fee let’s say $10usd v pay $5 per month. Now you keep the app like all other apps on my phone in definitely.... after 2 months I am not saving a dime and the developer is making money off of a program that I already paid for. As I said before, greedy is what you are, you are not evolving you are devolving this product and I’m not going to forgive you. You want to tell me I’m saving money... yes I’ll save money but not wasting it on this good for nothing monthly fee. ( btw there’s a 15$ translator that does more than this app ever will. )
It’s Good But.......
by Jaden Guardanapo on 2018/06/09 13:55
I really like this app and how it functions, but I don’t really like how there is a daily limit. I get it you need money so you can stay in business or something like that, but I can’t understand people now that I’m in America. What I mean is, I live in Portugal and I don’t really know English very well so I used the app to help me write this whole thing and boom it tells me the daily limit has been reached so now I can’t really communicate with them. And you may be asking “if it already ran out then why are you still typing this”, and the awnser to that is because this is the exact thing In copied and pasted. I hope you can make the daily limit maybe a little more. Thank you ~Alexis Guardanapo
This doesn’t work.
by fhfjsnv on 2018/07/07 15:46
Don’t get this app. It works the same as google translate, and we all know google translate does not work. The ad is fake. I tried speaking and translating, and when I switched back, it said the same exact thing in the other language. It also didn’t translate correctly. Don’t get this app. It’s the same as google translate. Why do people rate this 5 stars? It’s not worth 5 stars. Also, I hate the pop up ads. When you’re in a conversation, there will be an ad that interrupts translation. I doubt people will understand what I’m saying if I translate through text OR voice. This app is bad, NOT worth 4 stars. I’m pretty convinced that the developer message is just a bot or automatically responding to each and every message. You can’t convince me to reinstall the app. I’m not using it ever again.
Not intuitive.
by pablopicoso on 2018/02/06 15:23
Too many steps involved when you want to just do a quick translation. You’re buttons to translate are not necessary to be so big. A simple switch button between the flags is enough to switch the direction of the translation. That is what the arrows between the flags is for. Just like any map app, you switch there. You have a redundancy to enter text. One flag or the other. So now let’s say I don’t want to translate from English to Italian. How do you choose another language? A tiny nondescript button lets you do that. You’re only looking at it as if I’m in their country so one language access is fine but I live in NYC. Anyone from any language could be my next need for a translation. You buried the alternate language choices.
Do not purchase this BS app
by no one 1234567 on 2019/05/12 16:17
I am trying to fix the issue I have with this app with the support team, and I am getting nowhere for a month now. Wen I purchased the app it had an option to speak and translate from Bulgarian to English. I did the huge mistake to subscribe and pay for one year 39$ and this option stopped working. It keeps giving me a message that I am offline and the voice option is not available, just the write. I purchased it so I can use the speak and translate. I contacted the support, they usually reply in a week after your email and they are sending me info to cancel. Even if I do it cancelled after the subscription period of one year. So basically I spent 39$ for something that does not work, no one addressed my question about this offline bs, and it is totally waste of money
Too many adds and is embarrassing
by ZebraCat1519 on 2018/04/12 00:58
I was in France for a week and none of my family knew French. So I got this app while in France to help but in the middle of a conversation with someone, adds would pop up and half of my translations were wasted on apologizing to the person for the add. And then I ran out of translations, once more, while in the middle of the conversation. And we couldn't understand each other. This app has embarrassed me so much that I seriously believe that it should either be taken off the App Store or just remove the stupid premium option. No one is going to pay $20 a year for something this small and sometimes even relatively useless. Also their rating reply system is just a bot. They're all the same replays to similar complaints and problems.
Never meant to purchase monthly subscription
by Joni35209 on 2018/09/11 16:57
I may have used this app one time several months ago in europe thinking I had downloaded a free version but I’ve been charged $7 per month for several months. I finally canceled my subscription. I’ve never accidentally ordered an app subscription so I am suspicious that it was without my consent. I’d like to get a full refund. Also, I got an email a couple of months ago that the charge had failed because I had to replace my credit card and so I thought these charges would finally discontinue but you somehow got my new credit card number???? I did Enter my new card to continue my iCloud monthly $0.99 subscription. I did not authorize this app on my new card and I didn’t ever intentionally authorize a monthly recurring charge.
The Best translation app I have tried
by CBMann on 2019/06/13 06:28
I sat down at a table of only Japanese speaking people recently. I scrambled to find a way to communicate. When I found the speech to speech aspect of this app, the evening transformed and became one of the best memories I will ever have. This app breaks down barriers between people Awesome!! I wish there was a way to copy text from a text message in a different language and paste into this app for translation . Like Google translate. So i find myself using both apps to communicate. If there is a way to do this in this app, please let me know
Why would we Subscribe to an app that cost $20?
by Josh veto on 2018/01/21 16:31
I understand this app is very useful. Our use it almost every day at work. I work in the hospital so he’s going to translate Spanish and Arabic and creel. But for $20 a year it is not worth it. Now if it was 10 yes I would be paying in an instant for the premium. The pop ups are annoying and the worst part is it uses some of your translations and doesn’t let you finish typing them because the commercial/add cut you off and makes you wait 30 seconds. I believe this app could go if our way. But the price range for it’s a little absurd. I would like for y’all to rethink the price range. Maybe offer different packages but 20 bucks to just translate isn’t a good deal.
To many pop up ads
by Al@a2 on 2017/12/14 19:44
UPDATE: the app still has occasional pop-ups but that’s expected of a free app. It works good. I have used this app for about 6 months. My wife is Chinese and knows some English but sometimes words, phrases or topics need some explaining or more details. The apps always had ad pop-ups but recently the pop-ups come every time I begin to write something. Not only distracting but requires me to re-type what I was writing because the pop-up came have a sentence in.
Did not work, and speak to translate is only available WITH internet
by Mommap13 on 2018/12/09 19:31
So I bought this thinking it’d be perfect for my overseas trip. My first issue is that it did not provide accurate translations, often not even close! And many times the words were not even recognized. This was specifically a big issue for german to English translation. I had similar issues with French to English but not quite as much. My second issue is that I assumed you could do speak to translate without internet, but nope, only works with internet or data. Which if you’re traveling in another country and trying to speak to people in the street, it won’t work. Total waste of money, don’t buy! Just use google translate instead, it worked better, and it’s free
Could be better
by JoDayne on 2019/08/10 19:55
Ok, so I downloaded this app because I was in the nail salon getting my nails done and the lady messed up my nail twice and I complained. Usually I’m quiet but after waiting an hour and a half I was frustrated this was what I waited so long for. She began speaking Chinese (I’m assuming) so I remembered hearing about this app and downloaded it. WHAT A WASTE OF TIME. If you don’t know the language the person is speaking it’s of no use. Only for texts. I guess most people would like it but it was of no use to me. I already use google translate for translating texts so I was very disappointed. If they added an auto speech detector then that would be great and FIVE STARS. For now I’ll just give two because I’m still in my feelings. Lol.
I thought this would have been better
by stlimthesnake on 2018/09/14 04:21
I actually thought this app would’ve been good. I was wrong. I really like the idea of speaking and translating but my problem is the app’s listening. Whenever I say something in English, the translator always change some words make my sentence sound weird. I tried using this app to talk to one of my friends who only speaks Vietnamese, but when I spoke English, the app changed the end of my sentence to sound weird. I even tested this out by getting one of my friends to speak Vietnamese into it. He said “hello hello”, but the app thought he said “hello bottles”. Again like I said, this app could’ve been good but the listening skills of the app defiantly needs more work.
The pop-ups HAVE TO GO
by Aus4St on 2017/11/24 15:52
This app is very handy and easy to use, but the free version has become a NIGHTMARE due to the pop-up ads. Literally every time you launch the app it will send a delayed pop-up that usually interrupts your typing, automatically sending whatever you have typed in the text field to that point. It is especially annoying because you only get a set amount of translations per day, and half of them get wasted on the half-filled sentences that are sent once the ads pop onto your screen. There are plenty of other free apps out there that may not be as easy to use, but at least they won’t harass you every time you open the program!!
Love the App but too much for small usage
by redheama on 2018/02/28 23:11
I think you should have 2 types of pricing- one by the monthly/quarterly/annually, the other by the usage- 5 translations for each $1.00 not to exceed monthly fee. Nothing for months with no usage. I canceled my free subscription because I would probably use this once or twice a month and not every month. Even if you did no monthly fee if not used, I might consider but I’d probably use free translation sites first. I’d definitely do it if 5 translations for $1.09 not to exceed $3.99 per month, and only on months used.

In app purchase that kicks in as soon as you activate the free trial and charges you effing immediately, along with a message that you will be charged again in 3 days. These people can shove it. Apparently they do not understand the effing concept of free trial. I may ave purchased the service. Instead I immediately cancelled the subscription and removed the offending app from my phone. Making a note of the company... Will be discussing this with the State Attorney General’s office as well. Interstate fraud is serious business. Edit: I was charged immediately following signing up for the “free” trial. You can have the $3+. I deleted the app and will never download an app produced by this company again. Dear Bruce, You’ve purchased the following subscription with a 3 days free trial: Subscription Translator: No Ads & Limits App Speak & Translate - Translator Content Provider IAC Search & Media Europe Ltd. Date of Purchase Mar 23, 2018 Trial Duration 3 days Trial Price Free Price $4.99/month Payment Method Visa .... 6687 You won’t be charged for your free trial. Once it ends, your subscription will renew at $4.99 unless you cancel by Mar 25, 2018.
Great app and Customer Service
by Newcomb12345890 on 2018/08/15 02:28
I did enjoy the app. It translated properly. I didn’t really need it and was testing it out for a family member to show how this worked. I didn’t like that I had to subscribe to test it out but I did like the quick response back from the customer service that explained how to cancel the subscription. While I personally don’t need this app, I find it very easy to use and accurate. I highly recommend it.
Only lets you translate 10 times before...
by Iron_Man_Lives on 2019/11/06 06:37
This app lets you use the voice translation exactly 10 times. After that, it tells you you have to pay them $7 a month or $40 a year to use it. If you’re looking for a free or cheap translator to help you study a new language or communicate well, this isn’t your app. It’s decent for a translator. The translations aren’t perfect and you have to speak very well enunciated for it to pick up, but it does give you an understanding of what the other person is saying. You might consider buying it for a one time fee of $5.99 or something like that, but for the price I definitely do not recommend.
Robbed by this app and apple
by wyer on 2019/08/14 13:31
Update: Apple is refunding, but it looks like they may be trying to only refund price of app and not tax. I’ll call them again if tax is not also refunded. I was trying to deal with another subscription when this app popped up unsolicited causing me to inadvertently purchase an annual subscription I did not want. I immediately hit the unsubscribe button to no avail. I contacted app developers and was redirected to apple. Apple denied refund . This unintended purchase wiped out balance of my birthday gift card plus charged $20. To my AE. I will dispute the $20. with AE and recover that. I won’t get my birthday gift card money back but that's okay. For my birthday next year I will be asking for the newest Galaxy. I’m done with Apple.
Boooooooooo. Horrible
by hibs99 on 2019/02/16 15:27
Paid for premium and am still getting hit with the purchase premium notifications and other pop ups. I’ve used it a handful of times and 4 out of 5 times it doesn’t translate what I’m saying. For example I was using it to translate information about a kitchen remodel project to the nice worker who only speaks Spanish and the translation said something along the likes of “get drunk” and hinged instead of “did you know we are changing the cabinet hinges?” So once again, there are better apps than this for translation. My advise is you should seriously look at another. This app needs some work in my opinion.
Very useful
by fireball⚠️ on 2017/11/03 00:28
I am going to Italy soon and this will come in handy while talking to waiters and a lot of tour events and guides .I will be using this everyday in Italy.i think you should continue making apps . I think you should entente a game that also teaches you how to speak the language instead of using an app to translate for yourself.i like the way you're going with this app.😀👍🏻🇭🇺
3 day trial
by aDierf807 on 2018/02/28 18:49
I signed up for a three-day trial, it’s okay but I find the offline feature good but not as as helpful as it does not allow you to speak/listen/use the microphone just text which is not useful when you are traveling international, you have to have hook to a WiFi or have you roaming data. Now that I tried it and figured it’s not for me, I wanna cancel and make sure I don’t get charge. How do I do that? Because there is no unsubscribe button anywhere in the settings that I could see. Is deleting the app good enough? Please advise.
DO NOT GET THIS APP
by Vicky is da bomb on 2018/01/06 22:35
I guess this app is okay by itself, but many things are wrong. The first thing that really bothered me is that I couldn't even hold a proper conversation. I was barely getting into one and then it said, "limit of translation for today". That was terrible! I had barely said anything at all! Another thing that was bad is that their translating accuracy, was not good. I speak Spanish so I know this. I typed, "merry Christmas mommy" and it answered, "Feliz Mami de navidad". If you speak Spanish, you would know that that is very wrong. Another thing that was terrible is there was WAY to many adds. I think this app is really bad and you should not get it. But hey, do what you want.
Just imagine...

Imagine if I sold you a product, you paid full price, and happily went home with your new purchase that now rightfully belongs to you. Years later I randomly show up at your doorstep and claim that the money you paid years ago was now worthless and you had to now pay me monthly in order to keep this product. If you say no, I will force myself into your house and take your product away. That’s exactly what happened here. I paid good money for the premium version of this app a couple years ago and now it won’t work at all (just gives an error message) without a monthly subscription. How this isn’t fraud and unethical is beyond me. If they’re willing to do this, they’re probably willing to randomly jack up your monthly subscription or whatever other unethical money-grabbing schemes they have up their sleeves. Stay away unless you want your money and right to a product stolen like me. These people should be sued in court.
This app is only worth a 2 star rating..

I thought it was an amazing app after I downloaded it, but then after a few translations, the “daily limit of translations” had been reached and I started raging. Why do you have to pay to get unlimited translations? Apps, like google translate, which give you an unlimited amount of translations for FREE, definitely are apps worth downloading. I think you would definitely get more people to pay for the “speak and translate premium” if there were an unlimited amount of translations. Besides that, the app is pretty good.
Took me about 5 seconds to delete it

What junk! This app starts up asking you several times to upgrade, then to allow notifications, then again to upgrade. Ads everywhere. I did not even make it as far as a single translation before trashing it. Added after developer response: Even if you are supporting the app with ads, if I try it and value it, I will definitely upgrade as I support paid apps and good developers. However, if an app — like this one — does not even let me try ANYTHING while still bombarding me with ads and popups, then there is no chance of that.
TERRIBLE BECAUSE OF ADS
by Ben Zyb on 2018/04/21 20:55
This app seemed like a great tool- For about the first sentence I used to translate. After that, I would be midway through a sentence after having the app open for about 20 seconds and an ad would pop up, clearing everything you just said and not letting you resume it. With the free version, you will get at least 4-5 ads per minute. The developers of this app are just money greeds who want to frustrate you to the point where you will pay a ridiculous amount for the premium version. Id much rather take the time to type everything into google translate for free. Not worth it at all
Crashed before I could use it
by NKhamsa620 on 2019/03/28 22:00
Sounds helpful because it’s integrated w iCloud, I don’t see Lao/Laotian so it’s not helpful for me, personally. I’m surprised at the languages that ARE available, I know many Laotian people and there’s no Rosetta Stone or any other popular language software for it. I’ve found a few, very limited apps that aren’t super useful. The pronunciation always varies, as well. It’s not an easy language to study because of that. Closest to Lao is Thai, it too, has many limitations. What’s worse is that there’s many “slang” words you’ll only learn speaking with native speakers. Maybe somebody will read this and be inspired, lol.

Very sad. I was paying without knowing
by Ceni2000 on 2019/10/01 22:38
I don’t have a problem with the app. I am upset because the app is not clear about the fact that you are going to pay for a monthly subscription, and not one only payment for the use of the app. I end up paying more than 6 months of a subscription before I realized that they have charged me 42 dollars, instead of the 7 dollars I thought was the cost of the app. And I couldn’t get a refund. It was even impossible to cancel the subscription inside the app. I had to do it in the App Store configuration option. Very disappointed.
Glitchy & difficult
by Debt Free Is Less Stress on 2018/09/10 00:26
Haven’t had much success in navigating the glitchy & difficult app, one minute it won’t do anything & a few minutes later it will actually let you enter a word for translation. Even the directions in the app, don’t seem to work properly, like clearing history as just one example. If I can’t get it to work in free mode, I’m sure not paying for it, especially since it’s per device, instead of just buying it at once for all my devices or even family sharing.
Not translating correctly
by Scrupulous 2016 on 2019/04/16 22:43
I was so disappointed because it doesn’t give right translation and cannot Check if the translation is right. Unlike the google translate that is free, you can check first if the word you want to translate is correct or not and if not you can redo it and change to nearest word you want to be translated. Also, it doesn’t pick up the conversation always put dpo. I missed a lot of the conversation and if even get the conversation , the translation doesn’t make sense. Overall review failed
Basically Stealing😡
by Smart Working Woman on 2017/11/23 06:41
I used the app while I was in China. Many words didn't come out right but it helped a lot. I used up all the (free) translation so I upgraded to premium to keep using it. Once I left China I deleted the app. I noticed in my iCloud and bank. That I am still being charged for a service that I deleted and no longer use. I downloaded the app again and checked to see if it's a way to take it off. There is not. There is no button or way for you to take the premium off. FREE MONEY FOR THE APP DEVELOPERS AND A RIP OFF FOR REGULAR PEOPLE.
Do not download!
by charity12344321 on 2019/01/08 18:40
I downloaded this FREE app without any warning that it’s going to automatically set you up for a subscription and you don’t find out about it until you are charged. I downloaded this to help us communicate with our newly adopted 6 year old. First it didn’t work at all we tried using it for several days and finally deleted it. And now a month later I get a random charge and I had to do a lot of digging to first find out where this charge came from and second how to cancel the subscription. So do yourself a favor and don’t even download it.

This Translator is only effective for very simple translations ! ! ! On more important explanations and descriptions it makes MANY mistakes including the Gender of the person or persons you are referring to in your translations ! ! ! I have asked the company on 8 separate occasions to make corrections to improve their service; However, they have not corrected ANY of the things that needed to be corrected ! ! If President Trump were to use this Translator to communicate with other World Leaders we could very possibly be in a World War by now ! ! Unhappy User ! !
This App
by psychedelhippie on 2018/12/12 03:48
This app would be amazing if it didn’t crash all the time and have nothing but none stop ads interrupting you when you are trying to type in or speak words into the mic so you can translate. Touch base on the whole crashing thing, it honestly crashes for no bloody reason. Like every single chance it gets it will crash. Also, there isn’t really an option for just free translations. It constantly wants you to upgrade to premium. I really want to give it a 5 stars but these issues need to be fixed before getting 5 stars.
CAREFUL!!! SCAM!!!
by Katierinka on 2018/07/13 04:42
Do not download! This app somehow tricked me into paying $45 for their yearly subscription immediately upon downloading it. There’s no way to get a refund from Apple and their support will just brush you off saying they have no access to your account. What’s worse, it cannot even do it’s main function, which is voice translations. I tried using it to translate from Chinese into English and it comes up with some nonsense. Attention! If you are like me and got tricked into paying them, make sure you go into your phone’s settings and unsubscribe, otherwise this “translator” will keep charging you a hefty sum for nothing. I am so angry at myself for being scammed so easily!😡 UPDATE: Turns out my husband also got scammed into paying for this useless app. Now his account got charged after the trial period. How is that even possible? Doesn’t it say you have family sharing?!
Asking for subscription fee
by Tej pr on 2019/04/11 19:20
One time I download this application as trail version and deleted the application within an hours but still trying to charge my account, the good thing is I had canceled my credit card couple of month before so it is not able to charged my account but still I saw notification says payment is fail when this provider trying to charge my account. There is clearly written there will no charge if you are not using or not like this app with in a trail window. Please fix this problem
Unethical
by Vy131492 on 2019/08/11 17:56
After you start a free trial and plan, the subscription will automatically renew without confirming with you first and you get charge. You don’t even get to choose if you want to get a monthly, 3 month or yearly subscription. They chose the one that will cost you the most. This is the first time that I’ve had this happen to me. Update: As they say it’s normal. It is not normal. I downloaded many apps before and they always give you a warning that your trial is about to end or they let you know that you need to pay to continue the app.
