Use Google translate instead
by MIA R. DAVIS on 2020/07/14 02:18
I downloaded this app for a couple days of use. I made an account and made sure everything was free! I stopped using the app because it barely works and never listened to what I was trying to understand. That’s not the worst part though, apparently, a couple days ago while I was eating dinner and never used the app during that day or the day before, the app decided to charge me $50 for a yearly subscription. I didn’t realize until just now when looking at my bank statements. Even now, when I’m trying to cancel my subscription... it just sends me to a site with nothing basically. At the end of the day, if I don’t get my money back and some form of apology, this app is done. HIGHLY DON’T RECOMMEND!

by Misskaseynicole on 2020/07/10 12:29
I’ve never had a problem with this app but today, while I’m out of the country, I go to use it and it immediately kills the app. I’ve tried restarting the phone. Deleting and reinstalling. I pay for the monthly service This is a joke.

Thank y’all
Great app
by George Alfred Burns on 2020/07/07 00:03
I downloaded this app a few years back and paid a one-time fee of $15 or so for ad free. No more fees. My phone died and I reinstalled the app. Now it wants $50/yr to be ad free. Definitely not a happy camper. 🤬
Not free and beware th $50 is automatic
by Notagreatdeal on 2020/07/06 22:15
Never used it and they charged $50. I thought if I deleted the app that would be it but nope.

Freezes - fixed by re-install
by PurpleGem84 on 2020/07/03 15:43
I have used this app for a long time and found it used to be a good, reliable, helpful translator. **Until recent updates**. Now, the app just freezes. I open it to the default speak mode (I think the freezing started when that feature was either added or became the default) - and nothing is tap-able. The whole screen is frozen. I close and try to open it in the desired Text mode - same thing. Open, close, try again. Reboot phone. Nothing. Continue trying. It might work one out of 8 tries. Many times I just try to wait, thinking it’s trying to load an ad, but too often it just crashes. (Lately I’ve had to rely on that famous browser’s translation applet.) I see others are experiencing similar issues. I hope you can resolve soon. Thanks. EDIT - Thanks to Support’s prompt response, uninstalling and reinstalling fixed the freezing. (Was already on iOS 13.5.1) Now, if only I could set it to default to Text mode. ;-) Thanks again!

Doesn’t work
by Kenie_and_kotasmomma on 2020/06/26 00:24
Paid for this app. And it worked ok, slow but ok. Then now it doesn’t work at all. No one answers me . I want a refund as I had to download and pay for another app that at least works.
Will not work
by gifulrydubljphd on 2020/06/24 19:10
The app works great when it works. I click on the button on the screen and nothing happens. I have restarted my phone and still nothing. This has happened a few times now but this time it has been a few days. I pay for this app so any help to fix the glitch would be great. Edit: You have reached out and I can not respond to you because the app will not work so I hope this helps. I’m not really sure what started this issue. I go to the app and it opens but I can not click anything on the screen. It would appear that my phone is frozen but I can use any other app and the the touch screen works perfectly but when I go to this app there is nothing. I have restarted my phone multiple times but still I can not click on any button on this app.
Amazing until last update .
by musicscript on 2020/06/24 16:12
Since the last update your app is horrible ! Keep bugging , have to press a flag 10 times to make work , doesn’t recognize what I’m saying ... fix it ! It was amazing before that update
So slow to load up. Avoid

by Spadesmom on 2020/06/22 21:12
This app gives you a week free then automatically charges you the highest subscription rate of $50 without a choice. YOU have to go in to manage subscriptions and delete or choose a cheaper one. Misleading and complicated.
First time using this and it helps

Speak and translate
by Soldier day on 2020/06/15 18:51
I love this app because sometimes my grammar double not all the time but sometime she kind of has trouble understanding words and she knows Hindi which is the main language of India so I just like this app and it really helps I just want you guys to create more apps that I would love to load and it’s been a good app for people to translate voice and it also helps understand if you don’t know the language thank you and if you have more apps just send reminders and how to spell wonderful time and whoever gets my reviews have a wonderful time and hope you enjoy the shop thank you and that’s all I want to say
Fraud
by jonnyrick on 2020/06/15 02:55
I never accepted any subscription or free trial. I never asked for an upgrade I have no idea how they got my bank info because I never allowed a charge to go through. They won’t respond to emails and say in all the reviews that they can’t help with the money because they have no control over user accounts. It’s a scam don’t waste your time with this.

by wordhope on 2020/06/13 05:55
It works pretty well for the most part, but most if the time it freezes and is inoperable for up to 5-7 minutes. The picture translation option is also not very user friendly. Unless I cannot figure out the instructions, I don’t believe this app has the option to translate a picture of text in one language to English after English has been set as the primary language. I don’t think this is something worth paying for at this point. If it doesn’t work every time I need it to, Id rather invest my money somewhere else.
Good

Bought the app for a month subscription to attend my friends streamed funeral to translate from Croatian to English but didn’t work due to sound issues. Went to cancel the account under “manage” my account and it won’t let me cancel.
free trail??
by cgonzalez34 on 2020/06/10 01:47
if you don’t subscribe... you don't get to translate anything... what type of trial is this? if you can’t not even try it for free a least a day... not even worth to download

Huge progress in Translator Apps. Love how you can break down translations to better understand pronunciation and comprehension.
Freezes all the time
by AshleyM3589 on 2020/06/04 15:46
Not worth paying for something that doesn’t work half the time.
Good in a pinch, not the best
by tmmk1 on 2020/06/04 02:36
I got this to use for a Spanish class so I could listen to sentences I’m stuck on and have it translated. It works for the most part, I think google translate works better, but the biggest problem I have is with the app itself. When I open it and try to use the microphone the app freezes and I can’t do anything, I’ve restarted my phone and updated the app, the only thing that works is letting the app sit open for a few minutes before I use it. In the time I’m waiting I can use another translating service before the app even works. For an app that I’m paying for and with this many users I feel like technological issues should be at a minimum with the app.
Great Translation App!
by Trish74 on 2020/06/03 20:31
When this app was in it’s early stages, it was fantastic! A year ago, everything was free. It came with the download of the app. But, I stopped using this app for about a year, and when I used it again, the app had changed. You needed to purchase a subscription to have everything you could previously have for free. But, I understand, developers need to earn profit. I strongly recommend this translation app, you won’t regret it.
Great App

Not worth $50 a year
by Lexsandriad on 2020/05/30 21:41
This app should be worth $15 dollars MAX... to just purchase once and that’s it... it shouldn’t be a subscription at all... it’s not worth it. It’s a great app as I tried it free but NOOO WAAAYYY is it worth $50 a year. Yikes

by rickrx on 2020/05/28 19:32
Prior to my upgrading my iOS I would have given this app a 4.5, not perfect but used it all of the time. Now I can't get it to move off of the microphone to the keyboard. Removed the app from my iPhone and planned to reinstall. Tried the app on my iPad, same problem. Not happy. Per their response it’s obvious they didn’t read mine. I know how the app works. The buttons stopped working, stayed on the microphone. C the keyboard button did nothing. I’m dropping them to one star because of their response.
Charged 39.99 for non functioning app
by brisket666 on 2020/05/28 18:04
I was able to use this app in the past but since automated renewal last month I was unable to open it- frozen screen. Contacted apple for a refund and was told this charge is non refundable. Noted the price for app in the App Store is 19.99 and not 39.99. At this point all what I want is a refund so I can purchase app for 19.99 and start all over.
Excellent when it works
by Sambandar on 2020/05/28 17:51
I have used this app in conjunction with Babbel (French) when the Babbel app does not come close to interpreting what I was saying. (The problem, as S&T proved, was an argument between my iMac and Babbel.) When S&T worked, it was great. One day it froze each time I opened it. Restarting my iPhone and opening the app again did not solve the issue. I cancelled my subscription, which should still be active for a few more days, but when I deleted the app to reload it (which I should have done before canceling) it only offered a free trial or new subscription. Fair enough. For my purposes, it was exceptional. But with a monthly charge, hassles are intolerable.
SCAM
by Isaac Henderson on 2020/05/28 02:37
Update: just tried to do the free trial and the app tried to charge me even though I’ve never gotten a free trial before thank god I have something that makes me confirm before purchase

Wont allow me to cancel my subscription
by TyBhai on 2020/05/27 17:44
Hello. I am satisfied with the app when it works, however it remains frozen for typically 3-5 minutes every time I launch. Only app on my phone which does this. I have tried to cancel my subscription through manage subscription, however when I click on the link within the app o let a dead link appears. I’m not a lawyer, but isn’t forcing me to renew my subscription with out allowing me the option to cancel FRAUD, or THEFT of my money, or ENTRAPMENT, or something along those lines? Really not pleased, please inform how I may cancel my subscription. Thanks!

I used to love this app before the last update...since then, I’ve had to uninstall and reinstall it nearly 10 times because of the constant freezing. I’m an iPhone 11 Pro Max user and I’m running the latest version of IOS, so my hardware/O.S. aren’t to blame. Please figure this out or I’ll have to cancel my subscription.

Cheated and want a refund
by Lianaabc on 2020/05/22 11:50
I’ve been completely gypped!😫 a few months ago I did a free trial without realizing this app costs $40! Never would’ve gone for that since google is free. But during the trial it was useful and worked well so I justified it after I got charged. Then a few weeks later an “updated” version was forced upon me and now it’s the worst app I’ve ever experienced! There’s never a time when I open the app and it’s not frozen. Sometimes is a takes one to two minutes and then it catches up with what I’ve been trying to do. Sometimes it doesn’t work at all! There’s also never a time when I go to paste a sentence to be translated and it doesn’t let me paste until many tries later. To get a simple translation is always at least a two minute ordeal! I am deleting this app because it’s one of the more frustrating parts of my day, and I strongly feel I deserve a refund!
I’d give it a thumbs up

by nlkay on 2020/05/20 14:45

The app worked like a charm before this newest update. The new version is all looks. It constantly freezes, does not recognize or translate half as well as it did prior to the update. I was more than happy paying for a subscription since I used it almost daily but have since cancelled. Very disappointed

Refund
by zwqqn on 2020/05/14 14:38
I didn’t order this subscription! Cancel this immediately and refund my money Again, the app says it’s free, but actually it’s suspect. I looked at it and it wasn’t user friendly and never used again! So stop with your prompted responses putting on the consumer.... class action!
You ether get 3 translations a day or pay $50 a year
by CT 4486 on 2020/05/14 02:20
I understand that they need to make money somehow, but this app would be much better if it had more translations available per day with the free version. In my opinion there should be adds but many more translations with the free version. I’m fine with watching a few adds but this seems like something you wouldn’t need to use too much. Overall it’s not a bad app, but it’s still not great if your not willing to pay $50 a year.

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
Speak and translate
by Soldier day on 2020/06/15 18:51
I love this app because sometimes my grammar double not all the time but sometime she kind of has trouble understanding words and she knows Hindi which is the main language of India so I just like this app and it really helps I just want you guys to create more apps that I would love to load and it’s been a good app for people to translate voice and it also helps understand if you don’t know the language thank you and if you have more apps just send reminders and how to spell wonderful time and whoever gets my reviews have a wonderful time and hope you enjoy the shop thank you and that’s all I want to say
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.
Cheated and want a refund
by Lianaabc on 2020/05/22 11:50
I’ve been completely gypped!😫 a few months ago I did a free trial without realizing this app costs $40! Never would’ve gone for that since google is free. But during the trial it was useful and worked well so I justified it after I got charged. Then a few weeks later an “updated” version was forced upon me and now it’s the worst app I’ve ever experienced! There’s never a time when I open the app and it’s not frozen. Sometimes is a takes one to two minutes and then it catches up with what I’ve been trying to do. Sometimes it doesn’t work at all! There’s also never a time when I go to paste a sentence to be translated and it doesn’t let me paste until many tries later. To get a simple translation is always at least a two minute ordeal! I am deleting this app because it’s one of the more frustrating parts of my day, and I strongly feel I deserve a refund!
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.
What Happened? Help! *updated review
by K56SF on 2020/04/26 02:24
First Review Yesterday:Updated the app. Now it’s not working. Touch any button. Nothing. I see by reviews that I’m not the only one experiencing this. What did you do? Second Review Today: for all the complaints as I was one of them here’s the fix that worked for me. Uninstall app. Reinstall app. Voila it’s that simple! Now it’s working like a charm. Same functions as before but improved with new features. You can change the color of the background. You can snap a photo of something and it will translate the object. The list is endless. Bravo! Phew. I was worried. Love it!!!
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!!!!!!!
Excellent when it works
by Sambandar on 2020/05/28 17:51
I have used this app in conjunction with Babbel (French) when the Babbel app does not come close to interpreting what I was saying. (The problem, as S&T proved, was an argument between my iMac and Babbel.) When S&T worked, it was great. One day it froze each time I opened it. Restarting my iPhone and opening the app again did not solve the issue. I cancelled my subscription, which should still be active for a few more days, but when I deleted the app to reload it (which I should have done before canceling) it only offered a free trial or new subscription. Fair enough. For my purposes, it was exceptional. But with a monthly charge, hassles are intolerable.
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. )
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!
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
Good in a pinch, not the best
by tmmk1 on 2020/06/04 02:36
I got this to use for a Spanish class so I could listen to sentences I’m stuck on and have it translated. It works for the most part, I think google translate works better, but the biggest problem I have is with the app itself. When I open it and try to use the microphone the app freezes and I can’t do anything, I’ve restarted my phone and updated the app, the only thing that works is letting the app sit open for a few minutes before I use it. In the time I’m waiting I can use another translating service before the app even works. For an app that I’m paying for and with this many users I feel like technological issues should be at a minimum with the app.
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
Freezes - fixed by re-install
by PurpleGem84 on 2020/07/03 15:43
I have used this app for a long time and found it used to be a good, reliable, helpful translator. **Until recent updates**. Now, the app just freezes. I open it to the default speak mode (I think the freezing started when that feature was either added or became the default) - and nothing is tap-able. The whole screen is frozen. I close and try to open it in the desired Text mode - same thing. Open, close, try again. Reboot phone. Nothing. Continue trying. It might work one out of 8 tries. Many times I just try to wait, thinking it’s trying to load an ad, but too often it just crashes. (Lately I’ve had to rely on that famous browser’s translation applet.) I see others are experiencing similar issues. I hope you can resolve soon. Thanks. EDIT - Thanks to Support’s prompt response, uninstalling and reinstalling fixed the freezing. (Was already on iOS 13.5.1) Now, if only I could set it to default to Text mode. ;-) Thanks again!
Will not work
by gifulrydubljphd on 2020/06/24 19:10
The app works great when it works. I click on the button on the screen and nothing happens. I have restarted my phone and still nothing. This has happened a few times now but this time it has been a few days. I pay for this app so any help to fix the glitch would be great. Edit: You have reached out and I can not respond to you because the app will not work so I hope this helps. I’m not really sure what started this issue. I go to the app and it opens but I can not click anything on the screen. It would appear that my phone is frozen but I can use any other app and the the touch screen works perfectly but when I go to this app there is nothing. I have restarted my phone multiple times but still I can not click on any button on this app.
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
It was working great until.......
by evan7777777777777777776 on 2020/03/25 19:30
The app was working great for what I needed it for but after trying to use the app several times across multiple days, the app continues to glitch and mess up the translations. For example it would translate something like normal and all of a sudden after I had said the sentence, it would start adding “debajo” over and over and over again until it began to fill the entire screen, I exited out of the app in time. This app used to work so well but now it’s sort of creeping me out. The screen freezes at random points and five minutes later I hear the beep noise to speak the sentence. I would love to use this app again once these bugs are fixed.
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.
Overall... Decent.
by wordhope on 2020/06/13 05:55
It works pretty well for the most part, but most if the time it freezes and is inoperable for up to 5-7 minutes. The picture translation option is also not very user friendly. Unless I cannot figure out the instructions, I don’t believe this app has the option to translate a picture of text in one language to English after English has been set as the primary language. I don’t think this is something worth paying for at this point. If it doesn’t work every time I need it to, Id rather invest my money somewhere else.
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.
Great Translation App!
by Trish74 on 2020/06/03 20:31
When this app was in it’s early stages, it was fantastic! A year ago, everything was free. It came with the download of the app. But, I stopped using this app for about a year, and when I used it again, the app had changed. You needed to purchase a subscription to have everything you could previously have for free. But, I understand, developers need to earn profit. I strongly recommend this translation app, you won’t regret it.
Very useful

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.
Help
by hvajoe on 2020/04/28 23:19
I pay a monthly fee for this app and use it for translating text. I was shocked to see it was changed to voice and the page was frozen. I deleted app and reinstalled. I was able to see that I could text at that time. I was disappointed that I lost my old translations. I depend on this app a lot so I am glad it is back working. I just wish I would have been alerted to the change or given an option.
Basic
by ccalbertoe on 2020/02/19 23:31
This is a basic translator and not worth the money. Your experience with it might be different from mine so if you do decide to download it for the free trail period make sure you know how to cancel the subscription. I was unaware that it charges the subscription through the App Store and thought it would ask for a payment option when the trial was done. That misunderstanding is my own fault. If you try it and like it they do offer short subscriptions for a lesser price than the one year that I accidentally paid for. After trying it I don’t think you’ll want to pay for it.
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.

Use Google translate instead
by MIA R. DAVIS on 2020/07/14 02:18
I downloaded this app for a couple days of use. I made an account and made sure everything was free! I stopped using the app because it barely works and never listened to what I was trying to understand. That’s not the worst part though, apparently, a couple days ago while I was eating dinner and never used the app during that day or the day before, the app decided to charge me $50 for a yearly subscription. I didn’t realize until just now when looking at my bank statements. Even now, when I’m trying to cancel my subscription... it just sends me to a site with nothing basically. At the end of the day, if I don’t get my money back and some form of apology, this app is done. HIGHLY DON’T RECOMMEND!

I’ve never had a problem with this app but today, while I’m out of the country, I go to use it and it immediately kills the app. I’ve tried restarting the phone. Deleting and reinstalling. I pay for the monthly service This is a joke.

Thank y’all
Great app
by George Alfred Burns on 2020/07/07 00:03
I downloaded this app a few years back and paid a one-time fee of $15 or so for ad free. No more fees. My phone died and I reinstalled the app. Now it wants $50/yr to be ad free. Definitely not a happy camper. 🤬
Not free and beware th $50 is automatic
by Notagreatdeal on 2020/07/06 22:15
Never used it and they charged $50. I thought if I deleted the app that would be it but nope.

Freezes - fixed by re-install
by PurpleGem84 on 2020/07/03 15:43
I have used this app for a long time and found it used to be a good, reliable, helpful translator. **Until recent updates**. Now, the app just freezes. I open it to the default speak mode (I think the freezing started when that feature was either added or became the default) - and nothing is tap-able. The whole screen is frozen. I close and try to open it in the desired Text mode - same thing. Open, close, try again. Reboot phone. Nothing. Continue trying. It might work one out of 8 tries. Many times I just try to wait, thinking it’s trying to load an ad, but too often it just crashes. (Lately I’ve had to rely on that famous browser’s translation applet.) I see others are experiencing similar issues. I hope you can resolve soon. Thanks. EDIT - Thanks to Support’s prompt response, uninstalling and reinstalling fixed the freezing. (Was already on iOS 13.5.1) Now, if only I could set it to default to Text mode. ;-) Thanks again!

Doesn’t work
by Kenie_and_kotasmomma on 2020/06/26 00:24
Paid for this app. And it worked ok, slow but ok. Then now it doesn’t work at all. No one answers me . I want a refund as I had to download and pay for another app that at least works.
Will not work
by gifulrydubljphd on 2020/06/24 19:10
The app works great when it works. I click on the button on the screen and nothing happens. I have restarted my phone and still nothing. This has happened a few times now but this time it has been a few days. I pay for this app so any help to fix the glitch would be great. Edit: You have reached out and I can not respond to you because the app will not work so I hope this helps. I’m not really sure what started this issue. I go to the app and it opens but I can not click anything on the screen. It would appear that my phone is frozen but I can use any other app and the the touch screen works perfectly but when I go to this app there is nothing. I have restarted my phone multiple times but still I can not click on any button on this app.
Amazing until last update .
by musicscript on 2020/06/24 16:12
Since the last update your app is horrible ! Keep bugging , have to press a flag 10 times to make work , doesn’t recognize what I’m saying ... fix it ! It was amazing before that update
So slow to load up. Avoid

This app gives you a week free then automatically charges you the highest subscription rate of $50 without a choice. YOU have to go in to manage subscriptions and delete or choose a cheaper one. Misleading and complicated.

Speak and translate
by Soldier day on 2020/06/15 18:51
I love this app because sometimes my grammar double not all the time but sometime she kind of has trouble understanding words and she knows Hindi which is the main language of India so I just like this app and it really helps I just want you guys to create more apps that I would love to load and it’s been a good app for people to translate voice and it also helps understand if you don’t know the language thank you and if you have more apps just send reminders and how to spell wonderful time and whoever gets my reviews have a wonderful time and hope you enjoy the shop thank you and that’s all I want to say
Fraud
by jonnyrick on 2020/06/15 02:55
I never accepted any subscription or free trial. I never asked for an upgrade I have no idea how they got my bank info because I never allowed a charge to go through. They won’t respond to emails and say in all the reviews that they can’t help with the money because they have no control over user accounts. It’s a scam don’t waste your time with this.

by wordhope on 2020/06/13 05:55
It works pretty well for the most part, but most if the time it freezes and is inoperable for up to 5-7 minutes. The picture translation option is also not very user friendly. Unless I cannot figure out the instructions, I don’t believe this app has the option to translate a picture of text in one language to English after English has been set as the primary language. I don’t think this is something worth paying for at this point. If it doesn’t work every time I need it to, Id rather invest my money somewhere else.
Good

free trail??
by cgonzalez34 on 2020/06/10 01:47
if you don’t subscribe... you don't get to translate anything... what type of trial is this? if you can’t not even try it for free a least a day... not even worth to download

Good in a pinch, not the best
by tmmk1 on 2020/06/04 02:36
I got this to use for a Spanish class so I could listen to sentences I’m stuck on and have it translated. It works for the most part, I think google translate works better, but the biggest problem I have is with the app itself. When I open it and try to use the microphone the app freezes and I can’t do anything, I’ve restarted my phone and updated the app, the only thing that works is letting the app sit open for a few minutes before I use it. In the time I’m waiting I can use another translating service before the app even works. For an app that I’m paying for and with this many users I feel like technological issues should be at a minimum with the app.
Great Translation App!
by Trish74 on 2020/06/03 20:31
When this app was in it’s early stages, it was fantastic! A year ago, everything was free. It came with the download of the app. But, I stopped using this app for about a year, and when I used it again, the app had changed. You needed to purchase a subscription to have everything you could previously have for free. But, I understand, developers need to earn profit. I strongly recommend this translation app, you won’t regret it.
Great App

by Lexsandriad on 2020/05/30 21:41
This app should be worth $15 dollars MAX... to just purchase once and that’s it... it shouldn’t be a subscription at all... it’s not worth it. It’s a great app as I tried it free but NOOO WAAAYYY is it worth $50 a year. Yikes

by rickrx on 2020/05/28 19:32
Prior to my upgrading my iOS I would have given this app a 4.5, not perfect but used it all of the time. Now I can't get it to move off of the microphone to the keyboard. Removed the app from my iPhone and planned to reinstall. Tried the app on my iPad, same problem. Not happy. Per their response it’s obvious they didn’t read mine. I know how the app works. The buttons stopped working, stayed on the microphone. C the keyboard button did nothing. I’m dropping them to one star because of their response.
Charged 39.99 for non functioning app
by brisket666 on 2020/05/28 18:04
I was able to use this app in the past but since automated renewal last month I was unable to open it- frozen screen. Contacted apple for a refund and was told this charge is non refundable. Noted the price for app in the App Store is 19.99 and not 39.99. At this point all what I want is a refund so I can purchase app for 19.99 and start all over.
Excellent when it works
by Sambandar on 2020/05/28 17:51
I have used this app in conjunction with Babbel (French) when the Babbel app does not come close to interpreting what I was saying. (The problem, as S&T proved, was an argument between my iMac and Babbel.) When S&T worked, it was great. One day it froze each time I opened it. Restarting my iPhone and opening the app again did not solve the issue. I cancelled my subscription, which should still be active for a few more days, but when I deleted the app to reload it (which I should have done before canceling) it only offered a free trial or new subscription. Fair enough. For my purposes, it was exceptional. But with a monthly charge, hassles are intolerable.
SCAM
by Isaac Henderson on 2020/05/28 02:37
Update: just tried to do the free trial and the app tried to charge me even though I’ve never gotten a free trial before thank god I have something that makes me confirm before purchase

Wont allow me to cancel my subscription
by TyBhai on 2020/05/27 17:44
Hello. I am satisfied with the app when it works, however it remains frozen for typically 3-5 minutes every time I launch. Only app on my phone which does this. I have tried to cancel my subscription through manage subscription, however when I click on the link within the app o let a dead link appears. I’m not a lawyer, but isn’t forcing me to renew my subscription with out allowing me the option to cancel FRAUD, or THEFT of my money, or ENTRAPMENT, or something along those lines? Really not pleased, please inform how I may cancel my subscription. Thanks!
Great

Every time I’m trying to record myself again to speak to somebody else it brings up something to buy with a free trial.
Definitely some issues.
by Youngb718 on 2020/05/26 13:18
I used to love this app before the last update...since then, I’ve had to uninstall and reinstall it nearly 10 times because of the constant freezing. I’m an iPhone 11 Pro Max user and I’m running the latest version of IOS, so my hardware/O.S. aren’t to blame. Please figure this out or I’ll have to cancel my subscription.

Cheated and want a refund
by Lianaabc on 2020/05/22 11:50
I’ve been completely gypped!😫 a few months ago I did a free trial without realizing this app costs $40! Never would’ve gone for that since google is free. But during the trial it was useful and worked well so I justified it after I got charged. Then a few weeks later an “updated” version was forced upon me and now it’s the worst app I’ve ever experienced! There’s never a time when I open the app and it’s not frozen. Sometimes is a takes one to two minutes and then it catches up with what I’ve been trying to do. Sometimes it doesn’t work at all! There’s also never a time when I go to paste a sentence to be translated and it doesn’t let me paste until many tries later. To get a simple translation is always at least a two minute ordeal! I am deleting this app because it’s one of the more frustrating parts of my day, and I strongly feel I deserve a refund!
I’d give it a thumbs up

Frustrated
by nlkay on 2020/05/20 14:45
I’m using the app to help with my Spanish class. While the translating is great, it freezes up often and i have to delete the app and reinstall. It’s pretty frustrating and I expect more after paying for subscription.

by iquitsheetz on 2020/05/17 19:01
This translation program worked well since I got it a few years ago. In the past few weeks it completely stopped working. I can’t translate one Russian word, and EVERY translation is total gibberish. Please check your program and fix it. I need it often!!!
Not good
by ZohvmotlQ on 2020/05/17 04:13
Too high cost for a normal app
Very poor after update
by RichardFondle on 2020/05/17 02:02
The app worked like a charm before this newest update. The new version is all looks. It constantly freezes, does not recognize or translate half as well as it did prior to the update. I was more than happy paying for a subscription since I used it almost daily but have since cancelled. Very disappointed

Refund
by zwqqn on 2020/05/14 14:38
I didn’t order this subscription! Cancel this immediately and refund my money Again, the app says it’s free, but actually it’s suspect. I looked at it and it wasn’t user friendly and never used again! So stop with your prompted responses putting on the consumer.... class action!
You ether get 3 translations a day or pay $50 a year
by CT 4486 on 2020/05/14 02:20
I understand that they need to make money somehow, but this app would be much better if it had more translations available per day with the free version. In my opinion there should be adds but many more translations with the free version. I’m fine with watching a few adds but this seems like something you wouldn’t need to use too much. Overall it’s not a bad app, but it’s still not great if your not willing to pay $50 a year.

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
Speak and translate
by Soldier day on 2020/06/15 18:51
I love this app because sometimes my grammar double not all the time but sometime she kind of has trouble understanding words and she knows Hindi which is the main language of India so I just like this app and it really helps I just want you guys to create more apps that I would love to load and it’s been a good app for people to translate voice and it also helps understand if you don’t know the language thank you and if you have more apps just send reminders and how to spell wonderful time and whoever gets my reviews have a wonderful time and hope you enjoy the shop thank you and that’s all I want to say
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.
What Happened? Help! *updated review
by K56SF on 2020/04/26 02:24
First Review Yesterday:Updated the app. Now it’s not working. Touch any button. Nothing. I see by reviews that I’m not the only one experiencing this. What did you do? Second Review Today: for all the complaints as I was one of them here’s the fix that worked for me. Uninstall app. Reinstall app. Voila it’s that simple! Now it’s working like a charm. Same functions as before but improved with new features. You can change the color of the background. You can snap a photo of something and it will translate the object. The list is endless. Bravo! Phew. I was worried. Love it!!!
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!!!!!!!
Excellent when it works
by Sambandar on 2020/05/28 17:51
I have used this app in conjunction with Babbel (French) when the Babbel app does not come close to interpreting what I was saying. (The problem, as S&T proved, was an argument between my iMac and Babbel.) When S&T worked, it was great. One day it froze each time I opened it. Restarting my iPhone and opening the app again did not solve the issue. I cancelled my subscription, which should still be active for a few more days, but when I deleted the app to reload it (which I should have done before canceling) it only offered a free trial or new subscription. Fair enough. For my purposes, it was exceptional. But with a monthly charge, hassles are intolerable.
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. )
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!
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
Good in a pinch, not the best
by tmmk1 on 2020/06/04 02:36
I got this to use for a Spanish class so I could listen to sentences I’m stuck on and have it translated. It works for the most part, I think google translate works better, but the biggest problem I have is with the app itself. When I open it and try to use the microphone the app freezes and I can’t do anything, I’ve restarted my phone and updated the app, the only thing that works is letting the app sit open for a few minutes before I use it. In the time I’m waiting I can use another translating service before the app even works. For an app that I’m paying for and with this many users I feel like technological issues should be at a minimum with the app.
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
Freezes - fixed by re-install
by PurpleGem84 on 2020/07/03 15:43
I have used this app for a long time and found it used to be a good, reliable, helpful translator. **Until recent updates**. Now, the app just freezes. I open it to the default speak mode (I think the freezing started when that feature was either added or became the default) - and nothing is tap-able. The whole screen is frozen. I close and try to open it in the desired Text mode - same thing. Open, close, try again. Reboot phone. Nothing. Continue trying. It might work one out of 8 tries. Many times I just try to wait, thinking it’s trying to load an ad, but too often it just crashes. (Lately I’ve had to rely on that famous browser’s translation applet.) I see others are experiencing similar issues. I hope you can resolve soon. Thanks. EDIT - Thanks to Support’s prompt response, uninstalling and reinstalling fixed the freezing. (Was already on iOS 13.5.1) Now, if only I could set it to default to Text mode. ;-) Thanks again!
Will not work
by gifulrydubljphd on 2020/06/24 19:10
The app works great when it works. I click on the button on the screen and nothing happens. I have restarted my phone and still nothing. This has happened a few times now but this time it has been a few days. I pay for this app so any help to fix the glitch would be great. Edit: You have reached out and I can not respond to you because the app will not work so I hope this helps. I’m not really sure what started this issue. I go to the app and it opens but I can not click anything on the screen. It would appear that my phone is frozen but I can use any other app and the the touch screen works perfectly but when I go to this app there is nothing. I have restarted my phone multiple times but still I can not click on any button on this app.
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
It was working great until.......
by evan7777777777777777776 on 2020/03/25 19:30
The app was working great for what I needed it for but after trying to use the app several times across multiple days, the app continues to glitch and mess up the translations. For example it would translate something like normal and all of a sudden after I had said the sentence, it would start adding “debajo” over and over and over again until it began to fill the entire screen, I exited out of the app in time. This app used to work so well but now it’s sort of creeping me out. The screen freezes at random points and five minutes later I hear the beep noise to speak the sentence. I would love to use this app again once these bugs are fixed.
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.

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.
Overall... Decent.
by wordhope on 2020/06/13 05:55
It works pretty well for the most part, but most if the time it freezes and is inoperable for up to 5-7 minutes. The picture translation option is also not very user friendly. Unless I cannot figure out the instructions, I don’t believe this app has the option to translate a picture of text in one language to English after English has been set as the primary language. I don’t think this is something worth paying for at this point. If it doesn’t work every time I need it to, Id rather invest my money somewhere else.
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.
Great Translation App!
by Trish74 on 2020/06/03 20:31
When this app was in it’s early stages, it was fantastic! A year ago, everything was free. It came with the download of the app. But, I stopped using this app for about a year, and when I used it again, the app had changed. You needed to purchase a subscription to have everything you could previously have for free. But, I understand, developers need to earn profit. I strongly recommend this translation app, you won’t regret it.
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.
Help
by hvajoe on 2020/04/28 23:19
I pay a monthly fee for this app and use it for translating text. I was shocked to see it was changed to voice and the page was frozen. I deleted app and reinstalled. I was able to see that I could text at that time. I was disappointed that I lost my old translations. I depend on this app a lot so I am glad it is back working. I just wish I would have been alerted to the change or given an option.
Basic
by ccalbertoe on 2020/02/19 23:31
This is a basic translator and not worth the money. Your experience with it might be different from mine so if you do decide to download it for the free trail period make sure you know how to cancel the subscription. I was unaware that it charges the subscription through the App Store and thought it would ask for a payment option when the trial was done. That misunderstanding is my own fault. If you try it and like it they do offer short subscriptions for a lesser price than the one year that I accidentally paid for. After trying it I don’t think you’ll want to pay for it.
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.
