Paid & doesn’t work!
by unolc on 2019/11/18 05:07
I paid to use this app 2 years ago. Now this app doesn’t work at all! Try many times no matter where & how u take the text photos still its can’t recognized. N now they upgraded this app but need to pay more!! How about the old user? Please consider the old user feedback & advice to new user please think 3 times ahead before purchase this app.
unclear and ruse for $

Selected French to English. Returned French. Plus only a few translations for free. I am deleting.
Not worth paying for
by Gh0sttyyy on 2019/11/15 15:29
Overall it’s a good app definitely not worth paying for.
Useful, could be improved
by Graestra on 2019/11/13 21:09
Useful for converting images into text to transfer to another app. If it offered an in-app dictionary and word and grammar break down it would be amazing.
Does not work at all
by Priydjufv on 2019/11/02 23:22
I tried to translate something simple, Spanish to English, straight from the news paper. I tried multiple photos with different angles and lighting and nothin worked except the prompt to tell me premium was a great option
Help
by svetmich on 2019/11/02 19:17
It is the best app, however I think there’s a bug for free users and it wont allow for scanning. Please fix it as soon as possible as I need it for an assignment. Thank you.
Sucked

Wayyyyyyyy to hard to use, I was trying to get a nice app so I could see what signs meant in a local Japanese resteraunt didn’t work in 10 try’s. DO NoT BuY
Unreliable— unacceptable for an app you pay for.
by EGGWITH2G's on 2019/11/01 16:38
I had successfully used scan and translate for over a year; however, this last month is ceased to work. Multiple attempts yielded nothing. Went about troubleshooting every single angle: nothing! Got the same “circle of death” loading icon and after a lengthy wait, I got a message saying text was not detected- try again. I know it wasn’t the quality of the scans. It didn’t matter whether I took a picture or used an image from my library. Simply didn’t work- Unacceptable for an app you PAY a subscription! I canceled it and deleted the app- same goes for scan and translate and scan and translate pro. Both useless. Too bad, it was good one- NO more...
Useless
by PastorFaster on 2019/10/30 23:01
It claims to be able to translate a page from a book. I tried full page translation from German to English, partial page, and single line. Nothing worked. Changing lighting and using flash made no difference. Waste of money.

Too Good To Be True..
by a nickname i guess on 2019/10/23 01:54
When I first got the app, it worked alright. It was annoying to have to fix what it actually said to get a “proper” translation. It would also take forever if I wanted to translate more than 2 sentences and would barley pick up on periods or dashes. The worst part is you can only use it 5 times before paying a ridiculous amount! If you are going to make someone pay, just have them pay for the app when they get it instead of tricking them for only a demo of the real thing. Would definitely NOT recommend.
Terrible
by Lil ghostface on 2019/10/22 12:36
This doesnt even deserve one star, honestly garbage, I can go find a translator 20 miles away from me to get something translated faster than this thing can scan, its unbelievable and a scam for anyone who buys premium.
Upset customer
by Untouchable1906 on 2019/10/13 16:57
This new app is garbage and I’m so disappointed in what the developers have done compared to the old app that I purchased which was so great. The developers removed the old app from the App Store so Customers like myself can no longer obtain it to use on my new iPhone 11. Greed is never good. Charge higher for an app instead running to make it an subscription. I hope customers refuse to support them .

Horrible and many other problems
by laurel or yanny???? on 2019/09/26 21:31
You have to share your location which is very unnecessary and is very disappointing that you share your location for like the first 10 minutes like me until you uninstall the app.The app is very inaccurate and the worst part is I tried translating my pretty understandable Japanese hand writing with a normal pen and the picture of the letters in Japanese were very inaccurate and sometimes even got numbers!This to me is very unacceptable for sharing your location for it to even partially work although it is one of the most inaccurate translating apps I have ever tried! But in other words if this app was fixed in these following ways I’m going to list this app would be 10 out of 5 star! Don’t need to share location because people don’t want someone random to track you, two at least have 7 free photos, make the translation accurate because people who read this may disagree but to me it is a absolute waste of money if you spend it on this app because it is very inaccurate at the moment and sharing your location a random person can basically see where you are located! Very very disappointed and I apologize but this is just not it...👎🏻

Loaded this app and was never able to get to work. iPad not compatible or whatever. This app is a piece of junk. Take photo then you’re supposed to pick image then say done. Can’t pick image and NO “Done” command. Image was clipped too. Terrible.

Literally impossible to figure out how it works and there are so many deceptive buttons looking like they provide your translation but instead bring you to an ad 👎🏻

so they don’t show me text on what i am translating and i can only translate 5 THINGS. i should’ve read the reviews before downloading.. deleted right away
Back against the wall
by kwidee on 2019/08/28 18:13
I bought and successfully tested this app before using it for two weeks of intense (and expensive) research in Switzerland. Now I’m home and the app is “frozen.” With multiple tries I can get to the last of my scanned copies but can’t send them or scroll to others. No word back yet from support. I’m close to panic. Really wish they’d respond. I am noticing that with a one-star review, I can’t post because every conceivable nickname is taken. Hence I’m trying with two stars.

by athena soto on 2019/08/19 02:54
this app doesnt make any sense??? i tried translating my grandmothers funeral flyer which was written in Arabic, and it was translated literally in gibberish.. what the hell is "Nershthmhmlmahl Sehsso Stroberhghassammrs P 0 0 0 0 0 0 0" ?????
It was working good.
by STB2706 on 2019/08/17 14:57
It was working good until I couldn’t use it anymore. After a few tries you can only use it with a subscription. 👎
Meh
by Linds1128 on 2019/08/16 20:53
It gathered the text from the image fine but it didn’t translate it. I was using the right language google confirmed that when I used copy pasted from this app into it using detect language to English and with google the translation worked perfectly fine.
Aw crap here we go again
by LpsMarionette on 2019/08/08 01:03
So um it works for ya know only like 5 photos. And you have to pay to get more phots.. that’s so effing dumb I’m sorry but it really is. What if someone needed this app for an emergency? (Idk maybe someone will XD) I was trying to translate a manga and I couldn’t even do the whole thing because of this I could only do two sentences and who knows they might be wrong but if I were to run this app make it all free. Or at lease make it where you have to pay before hand like make the app a dollar if you want your effing money that bad. Seriously if this company even reads he reviews lots of people want it to be completely free so ya know maybe take that into consideration
i didn’t find my language

I tried it in two languages and it was inaccurate and only worked 1/10 times. I’m sure it works for other people based off their reviews. It tried to charge me after I kept trying and couldn’t get it to work so I deleted the app. I felt like the pictures were pretty clear but it didn’t work for me. It might be because I was taking pictures of a computer screen.

Worst translator app I’ve ever used
by usbevbf on 2019/06/23 10:00
Not intuitive at all and way too many ads, doesn’t work proficiently enough to download or use
1 star. Does not work.
by gsuakaavaiaoaosbshaia on 2019/06/14 22:41
This translator is horrible. Even google can do better. First, why does it say “unable to recognize” every time I take a photo? I try different lightings, I make sure the words are clear, why isn’t it working? It worked the first time I tried to translate it. Why isn’t it working now? Second, the fact that I’m only allowed to take 5 photos before I have to pay, is extremely stupid, considering it never actually translates my images, and when it does, the translation doesn’t even make sense. You only get to take 5 photos that aren’t translated correctly, or don’t translate at all, and then you have to pay 35-40 dollars if you want more. I have no problem paying for something that I want. However, 35-40 dollars for an app that seems to have no work or effort put into it when it was made, is just ridiculous. It seems like they only want you to pay, and that’s most likely the truth.
Doesn’t work for me unfortunately

by Nerwhald on 2019/06/10 17:09
The app worked decently. I used this for a book I had bought (which is in complete korean). It was a kpop book, and I already knew the lyrics, but I wanted to see the other pages. I tested it on the lyrics and it wasn't accurate much. There were spelling errors and lyrics that aren't in the song, like "don't bite me if you drink alcohol". Overall it worked, but when I tested it on other pages, it just didn't seem right. It would go from giant paragraphs to short misspelled words. And sometimes, it would not recognize images that were clear!
Uggg

I don’t know what language it is that I’m trying to translate and the app asks me to pick a language. On top of that it doesn’t have the option for auto detect. Why do they even need geolocations. It’s too intrusive.smh delete

by Lycheebao12 on 2019/05/17 01:14
When I first got this Korean page from my Korean teacher, she said that i needed to give it to my parents. So I wanted to see what it meant, I can only learn to speak and not read Korean. I downloaded this app and see what my teacher wrote. The thing couldn’t scan the handwriting (the handwriting isn’t sloppy, it’s perfectly normal). It can only translate the English part, which I saw no translation of Korean in. I would give this a three star but I’ll keep it like this.

Terrific!
by JRDenn on 2019/03/01 13:29
Unbelievable this has to be the most intuitive + user friendly interface app I have used in a long time. Moreover, it does what it says. There was lyrics that I was wanting to share but the site had disabled the copy and paste feature. I searched for a solution and found this app. So to I took a screen grab of the image with lyrics then downloaded it onto this app and in five seconds it extracted the text from the image into my notepad. I cannot oversell this app enough. I hardly ever write reviews but felt it imperative in the situation. Especially with it being free!
It’s amazing

by Harfergurh on 2019/01/11 02:56
I do not like that you only have 6 scans
Doesn’t work
by Leaners :/ on 2018/12/31 18:12
Ok so I have a Russian friend and sometimes the text me something I don’t recognize so I used this app and took a screenshot of the chat and didn’t work I looked at how to use and STILL DIDNT WORK!!!😤
This app is crap!
by tv com on 2018/12/22 00:03
Any app that says it’s free and then keeps trying to make you purchase service to “make the app work properly,” is complete crap in my book. This is one of those apps! Stick to google translator and you’ll be fine.
Great for long citations
by LunasBook on 2017/03/09 13:46
I am writing a paper where I am using long quotes from a specific edition of the bible (for a bible as literature class) and this has made it so much easier to be able to cite without typing out the hundred or so word quotes. My only problem is it occasionally messes up words here and there, but a quick look over and you should be able to spot them easily
1 star. Does not work.
by gsuakaavaiaoaosbshaia on 2019/06/14 22:41
This translator is horrible. Even google can do better. First, why does it say “unable to recognize” every time I take a photo? I try different lightings, I make sure the words are clear, why isn’t it working? It worked the first time I tried to translate it. Why isn’t it working now? Second, the fact that I’m only allowed to take 5 photos before I have to pay, is extremely stupid, considering it never actually translates my images, and when it does, the translation doesn’t even make sense. You only get to take 5 photos that aren’t translated correctly, or don’t translate at all, and then you have to pay 35-40 dollars if you want more. I have no problem paying for something that I want. However, 35-40 dollars for an app that seems to have no work or effort put into it when it was made, is just ridiculous. It seems like they only want you to pay, and that’s most likely the truth.
Terrific!
by JRDenn on 2019/03/01 13:29
Unbelievable this has to be the most intuitive + user friendly interface app I have used in a long time. Moreover, it does what it says. There was lyrics that I was wanting to share but the site had disabled the copy and paste feature. I searched for a solution and found this app. So to I took a screen grab of the image with lyrics then downloaded it onto this app and in five seconds it extracted the text from the image into my notepad. I cannot oversell this app enough. I hardly ever write reviews but felt it imperative in the situation. Especially with it being free!
Aw crap here we go again
by LpsMarionette on 2019/08/08 01:03
So um it works for ya know only like 5 photos. And you have to pay to get more phots.. that’s so effing dumb I’m sorry but it really is. What if someone needed this app for an emergency? (Idk maybe someone will XD) I was trying to translate a manga and I couldn’t even do the whole thing because of this I could only do two sentences and who knows they might be wrong but if I were to run this app make it all free. Or at lease make it where you have to pay before hand like make the app a dollar if you want your effing money that bad. Seriously if this company even reads he reviews lots of people want it to be completely free so ya know maybe take that into consideration
Great when it works
by JAL1388 on 2018/12/20 20:05
I loved this app at first — really great at picking up characters even on really low res pictures — but for the last few months the app has become extremely laggy and clunky. It crashes a lot, and sometimes it doesn’t register my input for a good ten seconds before responding, so now starting up the app and translating even a single word can take several minutes when it used to take 30 seconds. No other app of mine (and I have many) acts like this. I want to love it like I used to, so I’m hoping an update will fix these issues. Until then I’m defaulting to the less desirable but faster Google Translate app.
Partial translation
by NelsiPhone on 2018/02/13 03:06
I didn’t mind the fact I had to print out the pattern I wanted translated from German to English. I do mind that when it captures the selected text it is not as pictured in numbered {1,2,3} presentations. It captures in paragraph type form. And translates the same way. It doesn’t translate all the text either. I got this app to help translate all the text. Not just here and there common used English words. I would give this more stars if capture was as pictured and all words are translated. I did edit to have the numbers in order to the left side. It translated still in paragraph type form and I wasn’t able to edit the translation.
Ehhh
by Nerwhald on 2019/06/10 17:09
The app worked decently. I used this for a book I had bought (which is in complete korean). It was a kpop book, and I already knew the lyrics, but I wanted to see the other pages. I tested it on the lyrics and it wasn't accurate much. There were spelling errors and lyrics that aren't in the song, like "don't bite me if you drink alcohol". Overall it worked, but when I tested it on other pages, it just didn't seem right. It would go from giant paragraphs to short misspelled words. And sometimes, it would not recognize images that were clear!
Awesome!
by 0SimplyMel0 on 2017/12/07 03:05
I’m taking a Chinese course online (some advice for people who want to take such a complex class online, don’t), and the course doesn’t really do a lot of teaching. This has helped me figure so many things out from making sense of a phrase to just getting a refresher on a quick word. It especially helps since typing characters is very hard if not impossible.
Too Good To Be True..
by a nickname i guess on 2019/10/23 01:54
When I first got the app, it worked alright. It was annoying to have to fix what it actually said to get a “proper” translation. It would also take forever if I wanted to translate more than 2 sentences and would barley pick up on periods or dashes. The worst part is you can only use it 5 times before paying a ridiculous amount! If you are going to make someone pay, just have them pay for the app when they get it instead of tricking them for only a demo of the real thing. Would definitely NOT recommend.
JWG
by jeffe4sail on 2017/12/24 15:26
This app works very well and I see it has been very good with sentence reconstruction. Sometimes this app randomly does not reflect (misses) letters or words and therefore doesn’t display and/or interpret words that it missed. It will read and interpret bold, underlined, and/or italicized text and it will distinguish between upper and lower case letters.
Perfection
by Princess SW on 2018/06/30 01:57
Grabbed a free booklet on the way out of my favorite shop in France totally oblivious to the fact that it was written in French instead of English! Whoops! This app was amazingly helpful. The grammar was fantastically accurate which I know is a problem for some apps and I used it to translate the entire book with no problems! Super nice and quick too!
Best translation App out there!
by Dpno2nr on 2018/09/16 18:28
I was translating an article from a modern German rock music magazine. German and English slang mixed together. Tried five apps for help. Only Scan&Translate did everything I needed. (Only it still took a human brain to figure out that those two lonely words “sicherlich nicht“ at the end of a very long German sentence completely changed the meaning of the sentence!
Chinese translating needs some work
by WildFire132 on 2017/05/11 23:15
I'll give this app three stars because it is mostly helpful- that being said, I attempted to use it to help translate some Chinese characters from my text book and was given some very interesting translations. You can figure it out if you have a dictionary beside you or use Pleco to help you fill in the gaps where this app can't help, but otherwise this app serves its purpose and works like a charm!
Will It Translate On Screen Text?
by Eli_13_97 on 2018/02/23 05:27
I have a Japanese N3DS game and was wondering; If I take a snapshot of the screen, will it translate the text? If not, do I have to handwrite the seen text and take a snapshot of that for it to translate properly. I have no rating to really give this app cuz I haven’t began to use it, so for default, I gave it an average rating of three stars. If you guys could answer my questions that would be great 👍🏾. I use an iOS device w/ latest update 📱.
Back against the wall
by kwidee on 2019/08/28 18:13
I bought and successfully tested this app before using it for two weeks of intense (and expensive) research in Switzerland. Now I’m home and the app is “frozen.” With multiple tries I can get to the last of my scanned copies but can’t send them or scroll to others. No word back yet from support. I’m close to panic. Really wish they’d respond. I am noticing that with a one-star review, I can’t post because every conceivable nickname is taken. Hence I’m trying with two stars.
Tried to do it don’t know
by Lycheebao12 on 2019/05/17 01:14
When I first got this Korean page from my Korean teacher, she said that i needed to give it to my parents. So I wanted to see what it meant, I can only learn to speak and not read Korean. I downloaded this app and see what my teacher wrote. The thing couldn’t scan the handwriting (the handwriting isn’t sloppy, it’s perfectly normal). It can only translate the English part, which I saw no translation of Korean in. I would give this a three star but I’ll keep it like this.
It needs work... lots of work.
by faith_0729* on 2018/01/31 01:57
I was trying to translate a Japanese paragraph for my Japanese class. The picture and everything was alright, but the translating was very off. Most of the paragraph was translated, the rest were just dashes, commas, numbers, and in brackets. I tried it again five times to see if there was something wrong, but it still showed up with dashes, commas, etc.. I was having a real hard time trying to get it to work. 😤😠😡 I hope you fix the problem soon. I would like to use this app next time.
This app is time saving
by Hhfjdjdjjfjd on 2018/01/24 03:25
This app saved my life. I was writing a final paper, all of the sudden for somehow everything erased and I didn't get to save my paper. Luckily i had it printed. So i used this app to save me from re - writing my paper all over again. All i Had to do was scan the paper and it was there.
Minor mistakes
by Megablast2000 on 2017/09/10 01:09
So far so good! I've translate only three documents and I found only about 8 misspelled words within context. "I mean that the word is translated correctly but not the meaning in the text" I think this app is pretty good and accurate. I also like the style and options it has.
An amazing time saver
by Flgirrl on 2017/08/09 16:26
I don't use it for translations so I'm not sure how it is with that, but makes essay writing so much easier! The time spent typing up quotes may not seem like much until it's gone, and then the relief of it being a two second process is stunning
Worked a lot better then I was expecting
by ---Marshmallowmaster--- on 2019/05/01 18:09
I was honestly really skeptical on if this would work or not but it worked so well! It only works for printed text though, text written down confuses the robot. But for a free app I would give it more stars if I could.
What’s the point?
by Yesacas on 2017/11/19 06:03
I don’t see the use for a product on a ‘mobile’ device that requires you be tethered to a network all the time. If you travel as I do and need on the spot OCR that can really do just the basic ‘R’ in OCR (Recognition) this app is definitely not for you. It misses most real-world characters in most languages I tried (Vietnamese, Chinese even basic English), takes insanely long and then keeps asking for support. Sorry no ‘hand-out’ here. I’m actually stumped for a use of this product.
Works well!
by ❎Ⓜ️🅰N on 2018/01/27 18:02
So most English to Spanish or Spanish to English websites don’t work very well or either make you have to pay a lot to use it after 10 seconds this one is actually free and works pretty well and help me get done my Spanish work thanks!
Excellent OCR, excellent translation
by Sman1x on 2017/12/27 17:35
This is certainly the best OCR I have tried so far. I was very impressed at the app's ability to recognize Korean and translate it into intelligible English. Mostly I am using it to capture text, without translation. But it seems to do both tasks quite well.
No translate button
by Barbmac528 on 2018/11/06 15:29
Instructions tell you to press the translate button after you’ve done everything else. There is no word that says translate any place. There is no word “translate” I can’t find translate button. there is nothing that says translate therefore it does not translate! UPDATE: I found the button. It does not say translate. It has the letter “a” on it. They need to re-write the help section to indicate what the letter a means. When it finally did translate it was the worst translation I have ever seen.
Crouching tiger
by smg49 on 2018/02/02 18:11
Love this app! I scanned my shirt that had a phrase in a different language from Pacsun(not spon). I was intrigued to know what it meant!!! I soon scanned my shirt, looked at google translate, later that day I found out my shirt meant “crouching tiger”. Thank you Scan and Translate app! You saved the day!! 謝謝(thank you)
Saving my life in Zurich
by WolfTsenW on 2017/05/30 17:09
This app makes my life so much easier in German-speaking Zurich. The translations are not perfect but are more than enough to clue you in on many important things (transport announcements, supermarket tags, letters from the government!). This and Chrome translation works great for non-linguists like me.
Looking to accomplish work? Look elsewhere.
by D'bro on 2018/06/07 12:52
I scan, do OCR, and the resultant text requires more work than if I’d typed it myself. I translate, and it’s OK, but not enough I would actually trust enough to speak. A good human typist and translator are still better, less frustrating, and better lunch company. This from a guy who likes technology. Still a ways to go before machines outdo us on useful language ability. “Rome wasn’t built in a day...”
So far so good!
by Jkuna on 2017/11/19 02:02
Feels like I am cheating. be sure to scan 2 columns as separate scans. Translation seems pretty reliable, but you will have to check it for the typical mistakes that any translator makes. Saving me a whole lot of time typing time!!!
Totally awesome
by Sad this update does not work! on 2017/06/13 17:25
I like to work on pachinko machines and other such nonsense. Things are usually self explanatory but when they are not........this app can save the day. Error codes, part labels. If you like to tinker with stuff and don't know Japanese or Chinese you must have this.
perfect
by Masoudsh0054 on 2019/02/23 09:04
this app really is helpful. till many years ago If anyone was saying that I have saw an app that you only need take an photo from your text that want to translate. and FINISHED. this is really useful and easy to use. thanks developers 🙏🏻🌹❤️
Tootsie
by Rabbit333 on 2018/11/04 00:28
This is awesome! I wish I knew about this app while we were in Japan. My grandchildren have food allergies and it was difficult to purchase snacks or food for them to take back so that they could try. Thank you for providing this app.
Limited Uses
by Doug8474 on 2018/04/23 00:38
Not worth your time. Every 5 scans you watch an ad and if you need to do 10+ in one day, you would have to wait until tomorrow to scan another time. This may seem unimportant, but if your hand is shaky like mine, you need to redo a lot of the pictures, and each redo counts towards the daily 10. The ads are also invasive and annoying. Just translate your sentences, seeing that you need a good photo in order to scan big paragraphs.
Scan & Translate+
by BAR112 on 2017/09/10 05:34
The OCR feature works well, providing you scan only one column at a time (multiple columns turn out a jumbled mess). It doesn't separate paragraphs, but that is no big deal. Will probably find it useful for scanning from books.
Unreliable— unacceptable for an app you pay for.
by EGGWITH2G's on 2019/11/01 16:38
I had successfully used scan and translate for over a year; however, this last month is ceased to work. Multiple attempts yielded nothing. Went about troubleshooting every single angle: nothing! Got the same “circle of death” loading icon and after a lengthy wait, I got a message saying text was not detected- try again. I know it wasn’t the quality of the scans. It didn’t matter whether I took a picture or used an image from my library. Simply didn’t work- Unacceptable for an app you PAY a subscription! I canceled it and deleted the app- same goes for scan and translate and scan and translate pro. Both useless. Too bad, it was good one- NO more...
Didn’t work for me
by Adge007 on 2019/07/16 01:28
I tried it in two languages and it was inaccurate and only worked 1/10 times. I’m sure it works for other people based off their reviews. It tried to charge me after I kept trying and couldn’t get it to work so I deleted the app. I felt like the pictures were pretty clear but it didn’t work for me. It might be because I was taking pictures of a computer screen.
Amazing
by championRAINS on 2018/02/17 01:58
I love being able to take a picture of an excerpt from a book I am reading and paste the text into Evernote. This is an easy to use and major time saving app!
Good app with OCR
by Justdoit Bro on 2018/03/04 18:49
The OCR is this app works pretty well. Some mistakes here and there, but considering the text quality of the image this OCR is great. The weird issue is when I use my own image from gallery, it makes me crop it into a square frame instead of the standard picture frame.
Great but just slightly off
by ZPlayz on 2018/04/19 17:49
The app does what it promises by translating any document from real world paper scanning to digital documents but the translation is just slightly altered I’d give 4.5 but can’t do that but, the app is great at its job —(((Yes it’s better at translating than google translate)))—
Good enough
by Awesome J. on 2018/04/19 14:55
It gets the job done in a pinch but it'll still miss a couple words and the translation won't be exact. I'd recommend it for reading a short story or something but as far as reading a book or document that's acually important for you to understand every word of, it's not the best.
Doesn't work
by SpeedyArch on 2017/07/20 04:00
I have a small piece of paper with Chinese writing on it. I found it mixed in one of my items and have no idea what it says so I decided to try this app out of curiosity. Everything I take a picture, it tells me "text is not found! Please try to scan the document once more or set crop area!" I've tried everything and it continues to tell me this. If I could give 0 stars, I would.
Upset customer
by Untouchable1906 on 2019/10/13 16:57
This new app is garbage and I’m so disappointed in what the developers have done compared to the old app that I purchased which was so great. The developers removed the old app from the App Store so Customers like myself can no longer obtain it to use on my new iPhone 11. Greed is never good. Charge higher for an app instead running to make it an subscription. I hope customers refuse to support them .
Beyond helpful
by true-north on 2017/10/08 21:35
I’m writing a scientific paper. I didn’t know- or have expectations that an app would be useful or able to do the needed job. But work it has. I am grateful for the developer(s) for creating this app. Thank you so very much. I highly recommend this app; not just for casual use, but for technical translation as well. I realize it requires a critical thinker because AI is not a human translator, but this is the next best/useful tool. Thank you again.
Amazing
by SBux Doubleshot on 2017/04/26 19:07
Great, wish there were features I could pay for to avoid ads but that's my only complaint. Used it to translate some manga from Japanese to English :)
A worst app I’ve ever used
by Lovemite85327 on 2019/03/10 14:16
I installed it because it would be helpful but it isn’t. I want to translate a Bengali text to English but it won’t translate by taking a picture of a Bengali text. When I try to translate it after taking a pic it won’t allow me do it! I thought it to be helpful but it isn’t. 😢😩😩Please fix this app or else I’ll never use it!😡😤
Awesome app
by nickname13731 on 2017/10/12 17:35
Does an amazing job of converting text in a photo to text that I can use. Only problem I have seen so far is that it converted two nines to two ones.
Paid & doesn’t work!
by unolc on 2019/11/18 05:07
I paid to use this app 2 years ago. Now this app doesn’t work at all! Try many times no matter where & how u take the text photos still its can’t recognized. N now they upgraded this app but need to pay more!! How about the old user? Please consider the old user feedback & advice to new user please think 3 times ahead before purchase this app.
Extremely helpful
by slipknotmaggot7426 on 2017/04/20 01:28
Quick and easy to use. I highly recommend this app for anyone taking Spanish classes in college
This is FLIPPIN AMAZING
by A DEEPLY COMCERNED STUDENT on 2018/08/28 23:39
I downloaded this so I could multi task. I could take a picture of the page I needed to read for homework while I did other homework on my laptop!! I love it! Amazing technology

Selected French to English. Returned French. Plus only a few translations for free. I am deleting.
Not worth paying for
by Gh0sttyyy on 2019/11/15 15:29
Overall it’s a good app definitely not worth paying for.
Useful, could be improved
by Graestra on 2019/11/13 21:09
Useful for converting images into text to transfer to another app. If it offered an in-app dictionary and word and grammar break down it would be amazing.
Does not work at all
by Priydjufv on 2019/11/02 23:22
I tried to translate something simple, Spanish to English, straight from the news paper. I tried multiple photos with different angles and lighting and nothin worked except the prompt to tell me premium was a great option
Help
by svetmich on 2019/11/02 19:17
It is the best app, however I think there’s a bug for free users and it wont allow for scanning. Please fix it as soon as possible as I need it for an assignment. Thank you.
Sucked

by PastorFaster on 2019/10/30 23:01
It claims to be able to translate a page from a book. I tried full page translation from German to English, partial page, and single line. Nothing worked. Changing lighting and using flash made no difference. Waste of money.

Too Good To Be True..
by a nickname i guess on 2019/10/23 01:54
When I first got the app, it worked alright. It was annoying to have to fix what it actually said to get a “proper” translation. It would also take forever if I wanted to translate more than 2 sentences and would barley pick up on periods or dashes. The worst part is you can only use it 5 times before paying a ridiculous amount! If you are going to make someone pay, just have them pay for the app when they get it instead of tricking them for only a demo of the real thing. Would definitely NOT recommend.
Terrible
by Lil ghostface on 2019/10/22 12:36
This doesnt even deserve one star, honestly garbage, I can go find a translator 20 miles away from me to get something translated faster than this thing can scan, its unbelievable and a scam for anyone who buys premium.
Upset customer
by Untouchable1906 on 2019/10/13 16:57
This new app is garbage and I’m so disappointed in what the developers have done compared to the old app that I purchased which was so great. The developers removed the old app from the App Store so Customers like myself can no longer obtain it to use on my new iPhone 11. Greed is never good. Charge higher for an app instead running to make it an subscription. I hope customers refuse to support them .

by laurel or yanny???? on 2019/09/26 21:31
You have to share your location which is very unnecessary and is very disappointing that you share your location for like the first 10 minutes like me until you uninstall the app.The app is very inaccurate and the worst part is I tried translating my pretty understandable Japanese hand writing with a normal pen and the picture of the letters in Japanese were very inaccurate and sometimes even got numbers!This to me is very unacceptable for sharing your location for it to even partially work although it is one of the most inaccurate translating apps I have ever tried! But in other words if this app was fixed in these following ways I’m going to list this app would be 10 out of 5 star! Don’t need to share location because people don’t want someone random to track you, two at least have 7 free photos, make the translation accurate because people who read this may disagree but to me it is a absolute waste of money if you spend it on this app because it is very inaccurate at the moment and sharing your location a random person can basically see where you are located! Very very disappointed and I apologize but this is just not it...👎🏻

Back against the wall
by kwidee on 2019/08/28 18:13
I bought and successfully tested this app before using it for two weeks of intense (and expensive) research in Switzerland. Now I’m home and the app is “frozen.” With multiple tries I can get to the last of my scanned copies but can’t send them or scroll to others. No word back yet from support. I’m close to panic. Really wish they’d respond. I am noticing that with a one-star review, I can’t post because every conceivable nickname is taken. Hence I’m trying with two stars.

(Idk maybe someone will XD) I was trying to translate a manga and I couldn’t even do the whole thing because of this I could only do two sentences and who knows they might be wrong but if I were to run this app make it all free. Or at lease make it where you have to pay before hand like make the app a dollar if you want your effing money that bad.

I tried it in two languages and it was inaccurate and only worked 1/10 times. I’m sure it works for other people based off their reviews.

It might be because I was taking pictures of a computer screen.

1 star. Does not work.
by gsuakaavaiaoaosbshaia on 2019/06/14 22:41
This translator is horrible. Even google can do better. First, why does it say “unable to recognize” every time I take a photo? I try different lightings, I make sure the words are clear, why isn’t it working? It worked the first time I tried to translate it. Why isn’t it working now? Second, the fact that I’m only allowed to take 5 photos before I have to pay, is extremely stupid, considering it never actually translates my images, and when it does, the translation doesn’t even make sense. You only get to take 5 photos that aren’t translated correctly, or don’t translate at all, and then you have to pay 35-40 dollars if you want more. I have no problem paying for something that I want. However, 35-40 dollars for an app that seems to have no work or effort put into it when it was made, is just ridiculous. It seems like they only want you to pay, and that’s most likely the truth.
Doesn’t work for me unfortunately

The app worked decently. I used this for a book I had bought (which is in complete korean). It was a kpop book, and I already knew the lyrics, but I wanted to see the other pages. I tested it on the lyrics and it wasn't accurate much. There were spelling errors and lyrics that aren't in the song, like "don't bite me if you drink alcohol". Overall it worked, but when I tested it on other pages, it just didn't seem right. It would go from giant paragraphs to short misspelled words. And sometimes, it would not recognize images that were clear!

When I first got this Korean page from my Korean teacher, she said that i needed to give it to my parents. So I wanted to see what it meant, I can only learn to speak and not read Korean. I downloaded this app and see what my teacher wrote. The thing couldn’t scan the handwriting (the handwriting isn’t sloppy, it’s perfectly normal). It can only translate the English part, which I saw no translation of Korean in. I would give this a three star but I’ll keep it like this.

I am writing a paper where I am using long quotes from a specific edition of the bible (for a bible as literature class) and this has made it so much easier to be able to cite without typing out the hundred or so word quotes. My only problem is it occasionally messes up words here and there, but a quick look over and you should be able to spot them easily

Great when it works
by JAL1388 on 2018/12/20 20:05
I loved this app at first — really great at picking up characters even on really low res pictures — but for the last few months the app has become extremely laggy and clunky. It crashes a lot, and sometimes it doesn’t register my input for a good ten seconds before responding, so now starting up the app and translating even a single word can take several minutes when it used to take 30 seconds. No other app of mine (and I have many) acts like this. I want to love it like I used to, so I’m hoping an update will fix these issues. Until then I’m defaulting to the less desirable but faster Google Translate app.
Partial translation
by NelsiPhone on 2018/02/13 03:06
I didn’t mind the fact I had to print out the pattern I wanted translated from German to English. I do mind that when it captures the selected text it is not as pictured in numbered {1,2,3} presentations. It captures in paragraph type form. And translates the same way. It doesn’t translate all the text either. I got this app to help translate all the text. Not just here and there common used English words. I would give this more stars if capture was as pictured and all words are translated. I did edit to have the numbers in order to the left side. It translated still in paragraph type form and I wasn’t able to edit the translation.

I’m taking a Chinese course online (some advice for people who want to take such a complex class online, don’t), and the course doesn’t really do a lot of teaching. This has helped me figure so many things out from making sense of a phrase to just getting a refresher on a quick word. It especially helps since typing characters is very hard if not impossible.
Too Good To Be True..

When I first got the app, it worked alright. It was annoying to have to fix what it actually said to get a “proper” translation. It would also take forever if I wanted to translate more than 2 sentences and would barley pick up on periods or dashes. The worst part is you can only use it 5 times before paying a ridiculous amount! If you are going to make someone pay, just have them pay for the app when they get it instead of tricking them for only a demo of the real thing. Would definitely NOT recommend.

This app works very well and I see it has been very good with sentence reconstruction. Sometimes this app randomly does not reflect (misses) letters or words and therefore doesn’t display and/or interpret words that it missed. It will read and interpret bold, underlined, and/or italicized text and it will distinguish between upper and lower case letters.
Perfection
by Princess SW on 2018/06/30 01:57
Grabbed a free booklet on the way out of my favorite shop in France totally oblivious to the fact that it was written in French instead of English! Whoops! This app was amazingly helpful. The grammar was fantastically accurate which I know is a problem for some apps and I used it to translate the entire book with no problems! Super nice and quick too!
Best translation App out there!
by Dpno2nr on 2018/09/16 18:28
I was translating an article from a modern German rock music magazine. German and English slang mixed together. Tried five apps for help. Only Scan&Translate did everything I needed. (Only it still took a human brain to figure out that those two lonely words “sicherlich nicht“ at the end of a very long German sentence completely changed the meaning of the sentence!
Chinese translating needs some work
by WildFire132 on 2017/05/11 23:15
I'll give this app three stars because it is mostly helpful- that being said, I attempted to use it to help translate some Chinese characters from my text book and was given some very interesting translations. You can figure it out if you have a dictionary beside you or use Pleco to help you fill in the gaps where this app can't help, but otherwise this app serves its purpose and works like a charm!
Will It Translate On Screen Text?
by Eli_13_97 on 2018/02/23 05:27
I have a Japanese N3DS game and was wondering; If I take a snapshot of the screen, will it translate the text? If not, do I have to handwrite the seen text and take a snapshot of that for it to translate properly. I have no rating to really give this app cuz I haven’t began to use it, so for default, I gave it an average rating of three stars. If you guys could answer my questions that would be great 👍🏾. I use an iOS device w/ latest update 📱.
Back against the wall
by kwidee on 2019/08/28 18:13
I bought and successfully tested this app before using it for two weeks of intense (and expensive) research in Switzerland. Now I’m home and the app is “frozen.” With multiple tries I can get to the last of my scanned copies but can’t send them or scroll to others. No word back yet from support. I’m close to panic. Really wish they’d respond. I am noticing that with a one-star review, I can’t post because every conceivable nickname is taken. Hence I’m trying with two stars.
Tried to do it don’t know
by Lycheebao12 on 2019/05/17 01:14
When I first got this Korean page from my Korean teacher, she said that i needed to give it to my parents. So I wanted to see what it meant, I can only learn to speak and not read Korean. I downloaded this app and see what my teacher wrote. The thing couldn’t scan the handwriting (the handwriting isn’t sloppy, it’s perfectly normal). It can only translate the English part, which I saw no translation of Korean in. I would give this a three star but I’ll keep it like this.
It needs work... lots of work.
by faith_0729* on 2018/01/31 01:57
I was trying to translate a Japanese paragraph for my Japanese class. The picture and everything was alright, but the translating was very off. Most of the paragraph was translated, the rest were just dashes, commas, numbers, and in brackets. I tried it again five times to see if there was something wrong, but it still showed up with dashes, commas, etc.. I was having a real hard time trying to get it to work. 😤😠😡 I hope you fix the problem soon. I would like to use this app next time.
This app is time saving
by Hhfjdjdjjfjd on 2018/01/24 03:25
This app saved my life. I was writing a final paper, all of the sudden for somehow everything erased and I didn't get to save my paper. Luckily i had it printed. So i used this app to save me from re - writing my paper all over again. All i Had to do was scan the paper and it was there.
Minor mistakes
by Megablast2000 on 2017/09/10 01:09
So far so good! I've translate only three documents and I found only about 8 misspelled words within context. "I mean that the word is translated correctly but not the meaning in the text" I think this app is pretty good and accurate. I also like the style and options it has.
An amazing time saver
by Flgirrl on 2017/08/09 16:26
I don't use it for translations so I'm not sure how it is with that, but makes essay writing so much easier! The time spent typing up quotes may not seem like much until it's gone, and then the relief of it being a two second process is stunning
Worked a lot better then I was expecting
by ---Marshmallowmaster--- on 2019/05/01 18:09
I was honestly really skeptical on if this would work or not but it worked so well! It only works for printed text though, text written down confuses the robot. But for a free app I would give it more stars if I could.
What’s the point?
by Yesacas on 2017/11/19 06:03
I don’t see the use for a product on a ‘mobile’ device that requires you be tethered to a network all the time. If you travel as I do and need on the spot OCR that can really do just the basic ‘R’ in OCR (Recognition) this app is definitely not for you. It misses most real-world characters in most languages I tried (Vietnamese, Chinese even basic English), takes insanely long and then keeps asking for support. Sorry no ‘hand-out’ here. I’m actually stumped for a use of this product.
Works well!
by ❎Ⓜ️🅰N on 2018/01/27 18:02
So most English to Spanish or Spanish to English websites don’t work very well or either make you have to pay a lot to use it after 10 seconds this one is actually free and works pretty well and help me get done my Spanish work thanks!
Excellent OCR, excellent translation
by Sman1x on 2017/12/27 17:35
This is certainly the best OCR I have tried so far. I was very impressed at the app's ability to recognize Korean and translate it into intelligible English. Mostly I am using it to capture text, without translation. But it seems to do both tasks quite well.
No translate button
by Barbmac528 on 2018/11/06 15:29
Instructions tell you to press the translate button after you’ve done everything else. There is no word that says translate any place. There is no word “translate” I can’t find translate button. there is nothing that says translate therefore it does not translate! UPDATE: I found the button. It does not say translate. It has the letter “a” on it. They need to re-write the help section to indicate what the letter a means. When it finally did translate it was the worst translation I have ever seen.
Crouching tiger
by smg49 on 2018/02/02 18:11
Love this app! I scanned my shirt that had a phrase in a different language from Pacsun(not spon). I was intrigued to know what it meant!!! I soon scanned my shirt, looked at google translate, later that day I found out my shirt meant “crouching tiger”. Thank you Scan and Translate app! You saved the day!! 謝謝(thank you)
Saving my life in Zurich
by WolfTsenW on 2017/05/30 17:09
This app makes my life so much easier in German-speaking Zurich. The translations are not perfect but are more than enough to clue you in on many important things (transport announcements, supermarket tags, letters from the government!). This and Chrome translation works great for non-linguists like me.
Looking to accomplish work? Look elsewhere.
by D'bro on 2018/06/07 12:52
I scan, do OCR, and the resultant text requires more work than if I’d typed it myself. I translate, and it’s OK, but not enough I would actually trust enough to speak. A good human typist and translator are still better, less frustrating, and better lunch company. This from a guy who likes technology. Still a ways to go before machines outdo us on useful language ability. “Rome wasn’t built in a day...”
So far so good!
by Jkuna on 2017/11/19 02:02
Feels like I am cheating. be sure to scan 2 columns as separate scans. Translation seems pretty reliable, but you will have to check it for the typical mistakes that any translator makes. Saving me a whole lot of time typing time!!!
Totally awesome
by Sad this update does not work! on 2017/06/13 17:25
I like to work on pachinko machines and other such nonsense. Things are usually self explanatory but when they are not........this app can save the day. Error codes, part labels. If you like to tinker with stuff and don't know Japanese or Chinese you must have this.
perfect
by Masoudsh0054 on 2019/02/23 09:04
this app really is helpful. till many years ago If anyone was saying that I have saw an app that you only need take an photo from your text that want to translate. and FINISHED. this is really useful and easy to use. thanks developers 🙏🏻🌹❤️

by Rabbit333 on 2018/11/04 00:28
This is awesome! I wish I knew about this app while we were in Japan. My grandchildren have food allergies and it was difficult to purchase snacks or food for them to take back so that they could try. Thank you for providing this app.
Limited Uses
by Doug8474 on 2018/04/23 00:38
Not worth your time. Every 5 scans you watch an ad and if you need to do 10+ in one day, you would have to wait until tomorrow to scan another time. This may seem unimportant, but if your hand is shaky like mine, you need to redo a lot of the pictures, and each redo counts towards the daily 10. The ads are also invasive and annoying. Just translate your sentences, seeing that you need a good photo in order to scan big paragraphs.
Scan & Translate+
by BAR112 on 2017/09/10 05:34
The OCR feature works well, providing you scan only one column at a time (multiple columns turn out a jumbled mess). It doesn't separate paragraphs, but that is no big deal. Will probably find it useful for scanning from books.
Unreliable— unacceptable for an app you pay for.
by EGGWITH2G's on 2019/11/01 16:38
I had successfully used scan and translate for over a year; however, this last month is ceased to work. Multiple attempts yielded nothing. Went about troubleshooting every single angle: nothing! Got the same “circle of death” loading icon and after a lengthy wait, I got a message saying text was not detected- try again. I know it wasn’t the quality of the scans. It didn’t matter whether I took a picture or used an image from my library. Simply didn’t work- Unacceptable for an app you PAY a subscription! I canceled it and deleted the app- same goes for scan and translate and scan and translate pro. Both useless. Too bad, it was good one- NO more...
Didn’t work for me
by Adge007 on 2019/07/16 01:28
I tried it in two languages and it was inaccurate and only worked 1/10 times. I’m sure it works for other people based off their reviews. It tried to charge me after I kept trying and couldn’t get it to work so I deleted the app. I felt like the pictures were pretty clear but it didn’t work for me. It might be because I was taking pictures of a computer screen.
Amazing
by championRAINS on 2018/02/17 01:58
I love being able to take a picture of an excerpt from a book I am reading and paste the text into Evernote. This is an easy to use and major time saving app!
Good app with OCR
by Justdoit Bro on 2018/03/04 18:49
The OCR is this app works pretty well. Some mistakes here and there, but considering the text quality of the image this OCR is great. The weird issue is when I use my own image from gallery, it makes me crop it into a square frame instead of the standard picture frame.
Great but just slightly off
by ZPlayz on 2018/04/19 17:49
The app does what it promises by translating any document from real world paper scanning to digital documents but the translation is just slightly altered I’d give 4.5 but can’t do that but, the app is great at its job —(((Yes it’s better at translating than google translate)))—
Good enough
by Awesome J. on 2018/04/19 14:55
It gets the job done in a pinch but it'll still miss a couple words and the translation won't be exact. I'd recommend it for reading a short story or something but as far as reading a book or document that's acually important for you to understand every word of, it's not the best.
Doesn't work
by SpeedyArch on 2017/07/20 04:00
I have a small piece of paper with Chinese writing on it. I found it mixed in one of my items and have no idea what it says so I decided to try this app out of curiosity. Everything I take a picture, it tells me "text is not found! Please try to scan the document once more or set crop area!" I've tried everything and it continues to tell me this. If I could give 0 stars, I would.
Upset customer
by Untouchable1906 on 2019/10/13 16:57
This new app is garbage and I’m so disappointed in what the developers have done compared to the old app that I purchased which was so great. The developers removed the old app from the App Store so Customers like myself can no longer obtain it to use on my new iPhone 11. Greed is never good. Charge higher for an app instead running to make it an subscription. I hope customers refuse to support them .
Beyond helpful
by true-north on 2017/10/08 21:35
I’m writing a scientific paper. I didn’t know- or have expectations that an app would be useful or able to do the needed job. But work it has. I am grateful for the developer(s) for creating this app. Thank you so very much. I highly recommend this app; not just for casual use, but for technical translation as well. I realize it requires a critical thinker because AI is not a human translator, but this is the next best/useful tool. Thank you again.
Amazing
by SBux Doubleshot on 2017/04/26 19:07
Great, wish there were features I could pay for to avoid ads but that's my only complaint. Used it to translate some manga from Japanese to English :)
A worst app I’ve ever used
by Lovemite85327 on 2019/03/10 14:16
I installed it because it would be helpful but it isn’t. I want to translate a Bengali text to English but it won’t translate by taking a picture of a Bengali text. When I try to translate it after taking a pic it won’t allow me do it! I thought it to be helpful but it isn’t. 😢😩😩Please fix this app or else I’ll never use it!😡😤
Awesome app
by nickname13731 on 2017/10/12 17:35
Does an amazing job of converting text in a photo to text that I can use. Only problem I have seen so far is that it converted two nines to two ones.
Paid & doesn’t work!
by unolc on 2019/11/18 05:07
I paid to use this app 2 years ago. Now this app doesn’t work at all! Try many times no matter where & how u take the text photos still its can’t recognized. N now they upgraded this app but need to pay more!! How about the old user? Please consider the old user feedback & advice to new user please think 3 times ahead before purchase this app.
Extremely helpful
by slipknotmaggot7426 on 2017/04/20 01:28
Quick and easy to use. I highly recommend this app for anyone taking Spanish classes in college
This is FLIPPIN AMAZING
by A DEEPLY COMCERNED STUDENT on 2018/08/28 23:39
I downloaded this so I could multi task. I could take a picture of the page I needed to read for homework while I did other homework on my laptop!! I love it! Amazing technology
