Needs An Update
by NoItsReallyMe on 2021/02/24 14:21
I really like this app and would love to give it 5 stars, but I can’t because it crashes and freezes. When I tap speak or try to go to type it won’t do anything. I swipe up nothing, it takes a minute for it to work again. I also have it on my tablet and I have the same problem. Please!!! Fix this, it’s too expensive to have this problem.

Have to get subscription to use
by Billy Bumflumper on 2021/02/22 14:32
Why have the app be free if you can only use it one time without a subscription? Why not just have the user pay to buy the app in the first place? There is nothing more annoying than when apps do this. Don’t even download if you don’t plan on making a subscription.

I’m an high school student who needed a Spanish translation app to help me with my Spanish course. When I downloaded it I didn’t know you had to pay $70 a year or you can’t use it, so I deleted it. I did get one use out of it and it was correct so it’s a good app as long as your willing to pay:)

I love setup, and the way the app is formatted. I learned so much about different languages that I practically learned two languages from this wonderful app. You should definitely try try the plus and I give you my word you love the app. If you require a really good translating app it is this one.
Why does the voice change
by misskiss.k on 2021/01/07 15:39
The voice is very nice for French, and then when I switch to the man voice; and then back to the female, it is different. Seems like a glitch.
Can you stop billing me

The app worked great for about a month. Then it froze and none of the features will work. It’s just stuck on the homepage. And I paid for an annual subscription which I am certain will be a struggle to get my money back. Great app if it would only work.

Suddenly far fewer languages available
by littleredhedgrl on 2020/11/30 20:12
I’ve been using this app for years to communicate with my extended family. Today I updated my phone and applications and found that the primary language I use this for, Turkish, is no longer available. As such, this app is no longer useful to me. Not sure why you would have an upgrade that reduces the number of languages rather than increases them. Am off to find other translator programs.

Money grabbing
by H3ADHUNT3R70 on 2020/11/23 19:26
I had this app for a long time, as I used it to help with gaming with people from different countries. It helped amazingly as we could communicate easily and for no absurd cost, come to find out one day, they disabled the app to force you to change to download the new version which was a 70$ subscription, so I am appalled at the simple cash-grab mentality this once good app is now stuck with... and when this company gets an honest review from a longtime user, the developer tries to play it off like you, the consumer, is incompetent as evidenced by many of their “responses. Therefore I drop my rating, and I would give it zero if I could. (And noted that whoever is in charge of responses should not be...)

by Forest music on 2020/11/20 22:01
It’s wonderful. Really! I just speak in English and two or three seconds later the French text and speech comes on the phone. My home health aide for the next two months speaks very little English but she is sweet and cooks well, so I want to keep her. This app makes it possible. Only one problem – the ad says that it is free and every time I use it I have to maneuver around requests to subscribe for $5.99 a month.
Dissapointing...

It doesn’t work in any way. I paid subscription for a month and the first day I regretted it. It works very badly. even Google Translate is better and this one is free. So what is the point of paying for something that is worse than free?

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!!! 11/11/2020 Still loving the app. Gets sluggish from time to time but it’s still my favorite go to app when studying.

by cdatlas on 2020/11/06 12:47
3 free translations/day, $6/month, $70/year. So it lets you talk instead of typing, not worth what you’re asking, I’ll stick to the free apps that have unlimited use.
If this app ever got to work it’s good
by cozmo315 on 2020/11/03 20:02
This app crashes so often and takes literally 10 minutes to start working. I had to cancel my subscription and delete the app because it would cause my phone to crash and it’s an iphone 11 pro max, so that shouldn’t be happening. Very annoyed I spent 7$ a month for an app that 8/10 didn’t work when I needed it to.

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 &amp; 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 &amp; 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&#39;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; &#34;the bathroom is in the room&#34; 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 &#34;Premium scam&#34; 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&#39;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&#39;t need to worry about pop up ads or any translation problems. Hope this was helpful for people just getting this app.
Might work well but not for my purpose
by c.morrow on 2020/10/13 20:13
I got the free trial for it to be able to translate a box with Korean writing couldn’t translate. Now I am trying to cancel my subscription before I get charged and when I select manage subscriptions it takes me to broken webpage where I can’t cancel my membership. I can’t do anything on the webpage! EDIT: After going through I decided to add two stars. The way you cancel in going to manage subscriptions inside your Apple account. There is a way to cancel so it is not fraudulent but they should not have a manage account button if it takes you no where. They should also provide a transparent FAQ section that explains clearly how to cancel the subscription rather then having to go through reviews to figure out how to cancel the subscription.

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.
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
Trade offs
by -tungsten75- on 2019/10/12 04:08
Ok, so in general this app is pretty good. It lets you translate into more languages than Google Translate, and isn’t that inaccurate at translation. The only thing is that would you rather have a daily transation limit, or pay $20 for a few more languages than Google Translate? I get it, you guys are trying to make money, but maybe considering adding more languages and other features to make it worth the price in the full version. To be honest, this isn’t that bad. Oh also one other thing, I feel as if you guys are taking Google Translate and adding some extra languages, because for all of the languages in Google Translate, it says it was translated via Google Translate. No worries, this isn’t that bad and has a wide language variety. Thank you. -Winston H.
Mischievous!
by Mycroft's Hommie on 2018/05/17 14:55
This app was downloaded simply to view and try out compared to my other free apps, somehow it tricks you or slips into a subscription I did not want.. these traps must stop, no I cannot tell you how worth it this app is because it was limited with languages and filled with pop ups and be carful with your fingerprint button popping up, because one mistake touch.. and your lured into a subscription. I did not want a Subscription! Not figuring out apple’s new ios or whatever the reason be, they charge me and did not want to refund me.. bad Buisness ethics, I’m sorry for the negative review, but until I receive a refund, it stays because I did not want a subscription. No matter what the case may be, whether you want to try out the app or test it.. be careful! P.S. Please return my wrongfully taken money!
I’ve been using this app for months now.....
by TarterCarter on 2019/03/23 16:16
I’m sick of it. I literally use it everyday when there’s something I really need to explain to my girlfriend. The problem is when it goes to translate it hangs up. I can be in the middle of telling her something very important and it just sits there.... hung. The translator “button” you press just spins and it doesn’t return a translation. Why don’t free translators do this? So I have to kill the app and reopen. Sometimes I have to do that a few times before I can get it to cooperate. I have been doing automatic updates, so I know I’m at the latest version. I tricked myself into thinking that a paid app would ENSURE that it would ease and speed up the translation process on a day to day basis. If I keep using this trash, I’ll end up throwing my phone through the wall. I’m done with it. WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME. IT NEVER IMPROVED!!!!!!!
App ruined.
by Kingjeremythewicked on 2018/06/21 05:03
The best translate app now wants to rob you with a monthly premium. I’m sad and mad at the same time. This use to be worth every penny now it’s just trying to rob you blind. (Hey developer when all apps on computers and phones start charging months (no one will use them)) greed is going to ruin you. And the best part is the developers tried to respond with monthly fees will help you crap... You only want a monthly fee now years later because you can&#39;t sell your app . I&#39;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. )
Just wouldn’t work!
by J Gathright on 2020/07/15 23:20
I didn’t purchase any subscriptions or upgrades with this app for starters. It worked pretty well too. I was annoyed that I couldn’t translate that much because after a lot of using the app (like translating a bit) it’s say i had to upgrade to use the app more which I understood cause, you know, I didn’t pay for anything. But what really got to me was that there were times where I would open the app and try to click something and NOTHING would work! Legitimately, it wasn’t even the fact that I “ran out of translates” or whatever. The app just wouldn’t work for me and would be stuck on the home page. I tried tapping every button and nothing would budge. I got really angry with that and just deleted the app. I don’t really know it this is a constant struggle for people who use this app but, it was for me. I’m done
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&amp;T proved, was an argument between my iMac and Babbel.) When S&amp;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.
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.
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
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!
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.
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.
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!
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&#39;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&#39;re all the same replays to similar complaints and problems.
Now they’re getting greedy
by Mlance on 2018/08/11 16:02
I bought the program it works well however they want to change to monthly billing and they’re trying to erase my purchase and they make me sign into restore my purchases every single time I open the application I really resent this I don’t like going through the steps I bought it once in good faith I should be able to use it flawlessly you make me feel like you were cheap and petty I would recommend the usage but I don’t like your billing tactics
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.
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.
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.
Did not work, and speak to translate is only available WITH internet
by Mommap13 on 2018/12/09 19:31
So I bought this thinking it’d be perfect for my overseas trip. My first issue is that it did not provide accurate translations, often not even close! And many times the words were not even recognized. This was specifically a big issue for german to English translation. I had similar issues with French to English but not quite as much. My second issue is that I assumed you could do speak to translate without internet, but nope, only works with internet or data. Which if you’re traveling in another country and trying to speak to people in the street, it won’t work. Total waste of money, don’t buy! Just use google translate instead, it worked better, and it’s free
Could be better
by JoDayne on 2019/08/10 19:55
Ok, so I downloaded this app because I was in the nail salon getting my nails done and the lady messed up my nail twice and I complained. Usually I’m quiet but after waiting an hour and a half I was frustrated this was what I waited so long for. She began speaking Chinese (I’m assuming) so I remembered hearing about this app and downloaded it. WHAT A WASTE OF TIME. If you don’t know the language the person is speaking it’s of no use. Only for texts. I guess most people would like it but it was of no use to me. I already use google translate for translating texts so I was very disappointed. If they added an auto speech detector then that would be great and FIVE STARS. For now I’ll just give two because I’m still in my feelings. Lol.
I thought this would have been better
by stlimthesnake on 2018/09/14 04:21
I actually thought this app would’ve been good. I was wrong. I really like the idea of speaking and translating but my problem is the app’s listening. Whenever I say something in English, the translator always change some words make my sentence sound weird. I tried using this app to talk to one of my friends who only speaks Vietnamese, but when I spoke English, the app changed the end of my sentence to sound weird. I even tested this out by getting one of my friends to speak Vietnamese into it. He said “hello hello”, but the app thought he said “hello bottles”. Again like I said, this app could’ve been good but the listening skills of the app defiantly needs more work.
The pop-ups HAVE TO GO
by Aus4St on 2017/11/24 15:52
This app is very handy and easy to use, but the free version has become a NIGHTMARE due to the pop-up ads. Literally every time you launch the app it will send a delayed pop-up that usually interrupts your typing, automatically sending whatever you have typed in the text field to that point. It is especially annoying because you only get a set amount of translations per day, and half of them get wasted on the half-filled sentences that are sent once the ads pop onto your screen. There are plenty of other free apps out there that may not be as easy to use, but at least they won’t harass you every time you open the program!!
You have to pay money to translate, nope, don’t download
by catherineti on 2020/09/26 16:34
I downloaded this app to chat with a relative who was in another country. The first few translates were free. I was pretty happy with the app, until I pressed on one of the flags, and the screen for subscription came up. I was confused and thought I had pressed the wrong button. So I exited out of the subscription screen and pressed the flag again. The screen showed up again. I kept trying the flag and each time same result. Press the flag, subscription screen. I don’t recommend this app. It would have been a 5 stars if you didn’t need to pay $5.99 every month to translate a few simple words. Don’t download, there are better apps out there.
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!
Great tool for work
by Mamatude33 on 2020/07/28 20:22
Love this app for brief language barriers at work, directing patients when they arrive lost in front of me. Its helped me out at work in quick language barrier moments. Gotta say Im absolutely fascinated also by the ability to point the phone at foreign print, and have it translate into English. Line by line can be a little cumbersome with a paragraph, but great for food menus in Spanish or Chinese. Those are 2 of dozens of language pkgs u can download to ur phone. As many as u want if u have the space. Wonderful app!
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.
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.
Great App!!
by Et shoreline on 2020/08/14 14:07
I am a medical provider in a hospice setting and if a translator is needed for patient communication it is often delayed waiting to go through a contracted off site service. Using this app is a life &amp; time saver ... and private. It allows for a better flow of communication so the patient feels that he / she has been listened to and concerns and questions have been addressed... I cannot imagine experiencing a medical crisis in addition to a language barrier... using this app has eliminated that additional stress for these individuals!
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 &amp; Limits App Speak &amp; Translate - Translator Content Provider IAC Search &amp; 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.
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.
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 $5.99 or something like that, but for the price I definitely do not recommend.
Marital assist
by laki laki besar on 2020/10/20 01:41
I find the app to be invaluable when I don’t remember a certain word or phrase in my Indonesian, which I used while in the military as a linguist. Indonesian Bahasa has about seven different regional dialects, which for an American, makes remembering all of the rules difficult after not using my Bahasa daily like I did thirty plus years ago. Having the translator at my fingertips is greatly appreciated. Any dialectical confusion makes it easy for my wife to correct me with. So, thanks much. Sarge
Money grabbing
by H3ADHUNT3R70 on 2020/11/23 19:26
I had this app for a long time, as I used it to help with gaming with people from different countries. It helped amazingly as we could communicate easily and for no absurd cost, come to find out one day, they disabled the app to force you to change to download the new version which was a 70$ subscription, so I am appalled at the simple cash-grab mentality this once good app is now stuck with... and when this company gets an honest review from a longtime user, the developer tries to play it off like you, the consumer, is incompetent as evidenced by many of their “responses. Therefore I drop my rating, and I would give it zero if I could. (And noted that whoever is in charge of responses should not be...)
Had trial and bought actual version. Actual version disappeared.
by lacenter on 2020/08/19 17:51
I got the trial version of this product and used it. Then I bought the actual version. Until now, the icon for the trial and the icon for the actual version were on my phone. I used the paid for version a lot to talk to non-English people. Today there was only one icon and it wants me to accept a trial again. I tried to find the paid for version I bought without success. I want the paid for non-trial version back. This review rating is not for the product which is okay. It is because I’m being asked to take a trial for something I already paid for.
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.
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&#39;s okay. For my birthday next year I will be asking for the newest Galaxy. I’m done with Apple.
Boooooooooo. Horrible

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.
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.

Needs An Update
by NoItsReallyMe on 2021/02/24 14:21
I really like this app and would love to give it 5 stars, but I can’t because it crashes and freezes. When I tap speak or try to go to type it won’t do anything. I swipe up nothing, it takes a minute for it to work again. I also have it on my tablet and I have the same problem. Please!!! Fix this, it’s too expensive to have this problem.

Have to get subscription to use
by Billy Bumflumper on 2021/02/22 14:32
Why have the app be free if you can only use it one time without a subscription? Why not just have the user pay to buy the app in the first place? There is nothing more annoying than when apps do this. Don’t even download if you don’t plan on making a subscription.

I’m an high school student who needed a Spanish translation app to help me with my Spanish course. When I downloaded it I didn’t know you had to pay $70 a year or you can’t use it, so I deleted it. I did get one use out of it and it was correct so it’s a good app as long as your willing to pay:)

Why does the voice change
by misskiss.k on 2021/01/07 15:39
The voice is very nice for French, and then when I switch to the man voice; and then back to the female, it is different. Seems like a glitch.

by littleredhedgrl on 2020/11/30 20:12
I’ve been using this app for years to communicate with my extended family. Today I updated my phone and applications and found that the primary language I use this for, Turkish, is no longer available. As such, this app is no longer useful to me. Not sure why you would have an upgrade that reduces the number of languages rather than increases them. Am off to find other translator programs.

Money grabbing
by H3ADHUNT3R70 on 2020/11/23 19:26
I had this app for a long time, as I used it to help with gaming with people from different countries. It helped amazingly as we could communicate easily and for no absurd cost, come to find out one day, they disabled the app to force you to change to download the new version which was a 70$ subscription, so I am appalled at the simple cash-grab mentality this once good app is now stuck with... and when this company gets an honest review from a longtime user, the developer tries to play it off like you, the consumer, is incompetent as evidenced by many of their “responses. Therefore I drop my rating, and I would give it zero if I could. (And noted that whoever is in charge of responses should not be...)

It’s wonderful. Really! I just speak in English and two or three seconds later the French text and speech comes on the phone. My home health aide for the next two months speaks very little English but she is sweet and cooks well, so I want to keep her. This app makes it possible. Only one problem – the ad says that it is free and every time I use it I have to maneuver around requests to subscribe for $5.99 a month.

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!!! 11/11/2020 Still loving the app. Gets sluggish from time to time but it’s still my favorite go to app when studying.

3 free translations/day, $6/month, $70/year. So it lets you talk instead of typing, not worth what you’re asking, I’ll stick to the free apps that have unlimited use.
If this app ever got to work it’s good
by cozmo315 on 2020/11/03 20:02
This app crashes so often and takes literally 10 minutes to start working. I had to cancel my subscription and delete the app because it would cause my phone to crash and it’s an iphone 11 pro max, so that shouldn’t be happening. Very annoyed I spent 7$ a month for an app that 8/10 didn’t work when I needed it to.

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 &amp; 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 &amp; 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

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&#39;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; &#34;the bathroom is in the room&#34; 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 &#34;Premium scam&#34; 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&#39;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&#39;t need to worry about pop up ads or any translation problems. Hope this was helpful for people just getting this app.
Might work well but not for my purpose
by c.morrow on 2020/10/13 20:13
I got the free trial for it to be able to translate a box with Korean writing couldn’t translate. Now I am trying to cancel my subscription before I get charged and when I select manage subscriptions it takes me to broken webpage where I can’t cancel my membership. I can’t do anything on the webpage! EDIT: After going through I decided to add two stars. The way you cancel in going to manage subscriptions inside your Apple account. There is a way to cancel so it is not fraudulent but they should not have a manage account button if it takes you no where. They should also provide a transparent FAQ section that explains clearly how to cancel the subscription rather then having to go through reviews to figure out how to cancel the 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!
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.
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
Trade offs
by -tungsten75- on 2019/10/12 04:08
Ok, so in general this app is pretty good. It lets you translate into more languages than Google Translate, and isn’t that inaccurate at translation. The only thing is that would you rather have a daily transation limit, or pay $20 for a few more languages than Google Translate? I get it, you guys are trying to make money, but maybe considering adding more languages and other features to make it worth the price in the full version. To be honest, this isn’t that bad. Oh also one other thing, I feel as if you guys are taking Google Translate and adding some extra languages, because for all of the languages in Google Translate, it says it was translated via Google Translate. No worries, this isn’t that bad and has a wide language variety. Thank you. -Winston H.
Mischievous!
by Mycroft's Hommie on 2018/05/17 14:55
This app was downloaded simply to view and try out compared to my other free apps, somehow it tricks you or slips into a subscription I did not want.. these traps must stop, no I cannot tell you how worth it this app is because it was limited with languages and filled with pop ups and be carful with your fingerprint button popping up, because one mistake touch.. and your lured into a subscription. I did not want a Subscription! Not figuring out apple’s new ios or whatever the reason be, they charge me and did not want to refund me.. bad Buisness ethics, I’m sorry for the negative review, but until I receive a refund, it stays because I did not want a subscription. No matter what the case may be, whether you want to try out the app or test it.. be careful! P.S. Please return my wrongfully taken money!
I’ve been using this app for months now.....
by TarterCarter on 2019/03/23 16:16
I’m sick of it. I literally use it everyday when there’s something I really need to explain to my girlfriend. The problem is when it goes to translate it hangs up. I can be in the middle of telling her something very important and it just sits there.... hung. The translator “button” you press just spins and it doesn’t return a translation. Why don’t free translators do this? So I have to kill the app and reopen. Sometimes I have to do that a few times before I can get it to cooperate. I have been doing automatic updates, so I know I’m at the latest version. I tricked myself into thinking that a paid app would ENSURE that it would ease and speed up the translation process on a day to day basis. If I keep using this trash, I’ll end up throwing my phone through the wall. I’m done with it. WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME. IT NEVER IMPROVED!!!!!!!
App ruined.
by Kingjeremythewicked on 2018/06/21 05:03
The best translate app now wants to rob you with a monthly premium. I’m sad and mad at the same time. This use to be worth every penny now it’s just trying to rob you blind. (Hey developer when all apps on computers and phones start charging months (no one will use them)) greed is going to ruin you. And the best part is the developers tried to respond with monthly fees will help you crap... You only want a monthly fee now years later because you can&#39;t sell your app . I&#39;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. )
Just wouldn’t work!
by J Gathright on 2020/07/15 23:20
I didn’t purchase any subscriptions or upgrades with this app for starters. It worked pretty well too. I was annoyed that I couldn’t translate that much because after a lot of using the app (like translating a bit) it’s say i had to upgrade to use the app more which I understood cause, you know, I didn’t pay for anything. But what really got to me was that there were times where I would open the app and try to click something and NOTHING would work! Legitimately, it wasn’t even the fact that I “ran out of translates” or whatever. The app just wouldn’t work for me and would be stuck on the home page. I tried tapping every button and nothing would budge. I got really angry with that and just deleted the app. I don’t really know it this is a constant struggle for people who use this app but, it was for me. I’m done
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&amp;T proved, was an argument between my iMac and Babbel.) When S&amp;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.
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.
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
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!
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.
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.
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!
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&#39;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&#39;re all the same replays to similar complaints and problems.
Now they’re getting greedy
by Mlance on 2018/08/11 16:02
I bought the program it works well however they want to change to monthly billing and they’re trying to erase my purchase and they make me sign into restore my purchases every single time I open the application I really resent this I don’t like going through the steps I bought it once in good faith I should be able to use it flawlessly you make me feel like you were cheap and petty I would recommend the usage but I don’t like your billing tactics
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.
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.
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.
Did not work, and speak to translate is only available WITH internet
by Mommap13 on 2018/12/09 19:31
So I bought this thinking it’d be perfect for my overseas trip. My first issue is that it did not provide accurate translations, often not even close! And many times the words were not even recognized. This was specifically a big issue for german to English translation. I had similar issues with French to English but not quite as much. My second issue is that I assumed you could do speak to translate without internet, but nope, only works with internet or data. Which if you’re traveling in another country and trying to speak to people in the street, it won’t work. Total waste of money, don’t buy! Just use google translate instead, it worked better, and it’s free
Could be better
by JoDayne on 2019/08/10 19:55
Ok, so I downloaded this app because I was in the nail salon getting my nails done and the lady messed up my nail twice and I complained. Usually I’m quiet but after waiting an hour and a half I was frustrated this was what I waited so long for. She began speaking Chinese (I’m assuming) so I remembered hearing about this app and downloaded it. WHAT A WASTE OF TIME. If you don’t know the language the person is speaking it’s of no use. Only for texts. I guess most people would like it but it was of no use to me. I already use google translate for translating texts so I was very disappointed. If they added an auto speech detector then that would be great and FIVE STARS. For now I’ll just give two because I’m still in my feelings. Lol.
I thought this would have been better
by stlimthesnake on 2018/09/14 04:21
I actually thought this app would’ve been good. I was wrong. I really like the idea of speaking and translating but my problem is the app’s listening. Whenever I say something in English, the translator always change some words make my sentence sound weird. I tried using this app to talk to one of my friends who only speaks Vietnamese, but when I spoke English, the app changed the end of my sentence to sound weird. I even tested this out by getting one of my friends to speak Vietnamese into it. He said “hello hello”, but the app thought he said “hello bottles”. Again like I said, this app could’ve been good but the listening skills of the app defiantly needs more work.
The pop-ups HAVE TO GO
by Aus4St on 2017/11/24 15:52
This app is very handy and easy to use, but the free version has become a NIGHTMARE due to the pop-up ads. Literally every time you launch the app it will send a delayed pop-up that usually interrupts your typing, automatically sending whatever you have typed in the text field to that point. It is especially annoying because you only get a set amount of translations per day, and half of them get wasted on the half-filled sentences that are sent once the ads pop onto your screen. There are plenty of other free apps out there that may not be as easy to use, but at least they won’t harass you every time you open the program!!
You have to pay money to translate, nope, don’t download
by catherineti on 2020/09/26 16:34
I downloaded this app to chat with a relative who was in another country. The first few translates were free. I was pretty happy with the app, until I pressed on one of the flags, and the screen for subscription came up. I was confused and thought I had pressed the wrong button. So I exited out of the subscription screen and pressed the flag again. The screen showed up again. I kept trying the flag and each time same result. Press the flag, subscription screen. I don’t recommend this app. It would have been a 5 stars if you didn’t need to pay $5.99 every month to translate a few simple words. Don’t download, there are better apps out there.
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!
Great tool for work
by Mamatude33 on 2020/07/28 20:22
Love this app for brief language barriers at work, directing patients when they arrive lost in front of me. Its helped me out at work in quick language barrier moments. Gotta say Im absolutely fascinated also by the ability to point the phone at foreign print, and have it translate into English. Line by line can be a little cumbersome with a paragraph, but great for food menus in Spanish or Chinese. Those are 2 of dozens of language pkgs u can download to ur phone. As many as u want if u have the space. Wonderful app!
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.
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.
Great App!!
by Et shoreline on 2020/08/14 14:07
I am a medical provider in a hospice setting and if a translator is needed for patient communication it is often delayed waiting to go through a contracted off site service. Using this app is a life &amp; time saver ... and private. It allows for a better flow of communication so the patient feels that he / she has been listened to and concerns and questions have been addressed... I cannot imagine experiencing a medical crisis in addition to a language barrier... using this app has eliminated that additional stress for these individuals!

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 &amp; Limits App Speak &amp; Translate - Translator Content Provider IAC Search &amp; 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.
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.
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.

I find the app to be invaluable when I don’t remember a certain word or phrase in my Indonesian, which I used while in the military as a linguist. Indonesian Bahasa has about seven different regional dialects, which for an American, makes remembering all of the rules difficult after not using my Bahasa daily like I did thirty plus years ago. Having the translator at my fingertips is greatly appreciated. Any dialectical confusion makes it easy for my wife to correct me with. So, thanks much. Sarge
Money grabbing
by H3ADHUNT3R70 on 2020/11/23 19:26
I had this app for a long time, as I used it to help with gaming with people from different countries. It helped amazingly as we could communicate easily and for no absurd cost, come to find out one day, they disabled the app to force you to change to download the new version which was a 70$ subscription, so I am appalled at the simple cash-grab mentality this once good app is now stuck with... and when this company gets an honest review from a longtime user, the developer tries to play it off like you, the consumer, is incompetent as evidenced by many of their “responses. Therefore I drop my rating, and I would give it zero if I could. (And noted that whoever is in charge of responses should not be...)
Had trial and bought actual version. Actual version disappeared.

I got the trial version of this product and used it. Then I bought the actual version. Until now, the icon for the trial and the icon for the actual version were on my phone. I used the paid for version a lot to talk to non-English people. Today there was only one icon and it wants me to accept a trial again. I tried to find the paid for version I bought without success. I want the paid for non-trial version back. This review rating is not for the product which is okay. It is because I’m being asked to take a trial for something I already paid for.
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.
Robbed by this app and apple

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&#39;s okay. For my birthday next year I will be asking for the newest Galaxy. I’m done with Apple.
Boooooooooo. Horrible

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.
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.
