Used to be free
by Shelia1573 on 2021/01/13 04:03
I used to use this app, but it is been a long time since I used it I opened it up and I saw that it was $32 annually and almost had a heart attack. I will be deleting it from my phone.
I hate it
by lucycat61 on 2021/01/11 20:41
I was trying to translate something and it popped up when your subscription for $32 and I just think that’s way too much and now I can’t use it so I deleted it 😡😡😡😡😡
Horrible
by Extra BAD on 2021/01/03 16:06
You need to pay to use this app after you take 3 pictures and the pictures don’t even translate correctly. I took a picture of 4 sentences and it translated 2 words
Premium access??
by xoMalloriexo on 2020/12/31 11:42
It works well for me, but the only issue I have is that you have to buy premium access to use it with unlimited tries. I could only scan three items for free when I had many more left to scan. As a result, I deleted the app. Not a good way to get more downloads. I suggest at least adding an advertisement feature for free scans.

Old Russian document
by ukrainian nana on 2020/11/21 04:09
This app looked at an old Russian church document that had both printed and scripted Russian language. Most of what it saw it translated however there were names on the document and those of course were left in Russian
Good free trial

Terrible support
by Rugby Diva on 2020/10/27 10:34
I have asked repeatedly to cancel my subscription. Various support people have told me different places to look for a cancellation option which is not visible to me. When I told them that there was no follow-up.
Updated app not so fun as before
by Renee21!! on 2020/10/24 01:24
It was great before they updated their app. I’m really sad that to me it’s kinda difficult to use now.
Update ruined the simplicity
by emerald_crows on 2020/10/16 11:50
This is a perfect example of the computer trying to be smarter than you and failing miserably. I had been using this app for travel for well over 3 years and have had no issues until I was met with an update that completely ruined the simplicity of it. No more snap and translate, 15 different menus to sort though to get to where you were in 1 photo snap before. Deleted immediately.
Used to work .. but now it’s crap
by JSunny365 on 2020/09/24 03:01
Used to work .. but now it’s crap Use to use it to decipher & translate hand writing on back of old photos .. genealogy.. But now it’s junk .. utter junk ... your new UI does not recognize foreign language cursive at all anymore..nothing .. piece of crap updates didn’t fix it Gave you time to fix it .. but nah .. you wrecked it .. Subscription cancelled
Scan and Destroy
by Sxyknickers on 2020/09/23 14:12
You took a perfectly usable app and destroyed it. The changes make it unworkable as the options don’t allow me to move from saving and OCR to actually translating it. There is no swiping or button that will allow me to complete a translation. Utter crap!!
Then new version
by iy5012 on 2020/09/18 14:08
After I do the update to the new version of this app it stop working .Every time I throw a picture that I want to translate the app continue saying didn’t see any text so it’s not really giving me any translation and it’s very sad because a pay for a yearly subscription

Do not get this app it takes your money and doesn’t even work.
Difficult to use
by ac gu on 2020/09/14 23:09
Since the new update l can not locate my saved text easily. I have been using this app for 41/2 years. First text grabber 21/2 years then scan and translate 2 years. Up till now it’s been a very reliable app. Thank you
Thanks for taking away the five free translations a day
by Museymayhem on 2020/09/14 05:16
Seriously of course you’d do that. Don’t even offer it in the first place if you’re just going to take it away. Thanks
Congratulations

Lo mejor en traslation
The app is horrible
by Spider3980 on 2020/09/09 17:34
I wrote in Spanish and I wouldn’t even translate anything it was translating to Spanish
Didn’t do anything
by Marty McGuy on 2020/09/08 07:15
Kept saying it couldn’t translate because maybe I’m not connected to the internet. Full WiFi bars and no trouble post a review... oh well.
I NEED A REFUND
by Kylie aka Hollywood!!! on 2020/09/03 20:57
The app forced me to pay 35$ even though I was trying a free trial. I do not want to use the app and have cancelled immediately. Don’t download unless you want premium honestly 35 dollars is not worth it. Very upset
I’m sorry but it’s not fair :/
by UDDYFLALLCIHOUIATKS on 2020/07/31 16:52
I got this app and thought it would actually help, but it only works after three photos for me. It did work pretty well but I’m not buying a stupid crappy membership for more photos. Instead of paying for a membership I’m going to get Google Translate instead cause it’s WAY easier and you DON’T have to pay for a membership. Lol I’m sorry that I’m a young teen and I don’t have money, but this app is bull.
Broken app, does not work anymore
by Slotownoriginal on 2020/07/25 20:27
This app hasn't worked for some time now, at least when trying to grab text and translate from a gallery photo. It allows you to set up but then when you crop your selection and press the button to execute, it just gets stuck, every time the same thing. Which is a bummer because this used to be my favorite one and I've kept it on my phone a good 6 months going it would get fixed
Great tool!!!!
by Leslie Castellano on 2020/07/20 14:53
I love it.
Text not found!
by Karosiv on 2020/07/16 07:01
This app literally doesn’t work anymore. No matter how many times I submit, crop, scan, etc. It never finds any text in any language! Completely useless now!
I paid the money. They upgraded & did away with my purchase
by Scot21t on 2020/06/30 11:24
Now the app has another app that does the same thing and requires more money. Good luck with your purchase. They will make another app, stop updating the app you bought and it will say “not available in this App Store or Country”. Not worth it. Try some other developer!!
Amazingly easy to use
by Thecalliefox17 on 2020/06/14 06:41
I love how easy it is to use it and since my phone has a good camera it almost always works, i also like the way it lets you crop out where you want to translate. The only thing I wish was different is that I wish I could speed up the speech.
I’m done!
by prinsessmeray on 2020/06/10 16:20
This does not work at all
Just unnecessary flaws
by JtG CROO25 on 2020/06/07 22:57
It’s a translator, use your camera, trim the image, boom it translates. I just hate the fact that I have to pay money in order to use a camera, ads could’ve been fine. Like maybe one after every translation, but nope instead I gotta pay up to $33 to use an app that translates words. This will become obsolete when google translate adds a camera function.
Not worth it
by Milanticpanda on 2020/06/07 10:58
The translation made no sense. Downloaded this in a pinch and couldn’t even use it. The translation was incomprehensible, which I was ok with because I could sort of decipher it, but you can only scan like three times and if you mess up one of those times you’re out of luck, and then after I tried the ad to get extra scans it wouldn’t even work. I’d just skip this one
Can’t do anything without paying

Not easy to use or translating my text!
by awaomeappgame on 2020/06/02 08:43
I thought this would have a small tutorial. It does not. I finally figured it out and it translated nadda.
Useful, but slow
by Mauri-007 on 2020/05/30 21:32
This app continues to be incredibly useful and convenient (despite the freeform cropping) However, when I redownloaded it in May 2020, it became laggy.
It doesn’t work!

Only 3 scans
by hey girl 189 on 2020/05/23 00:02
You only get 3 scans which is hard when you have 16 different questions.
This App is really bad.
by _jonas72 on 2020/05/20 17:47
This is such a bad app. I tried to translate a book that was written in Italian I only tried to translate one page to English I had also already had some translations from my cousins but the app didn’t translate anything and didn’t even read the English I had already written on the page correctly. this apps 4 1/2 star rating is probably just paid reviews.
Why
by vasttelll on 2020/05/15 19:25
The translator is free on google so would I have to pay to use this one LOL
Google translator is better
by smehffidksnsndndhj on 2020/05/13 16:16
You have to buy everything don’t waste your time on this app
It’s ok 🤷🏽‍♀️👎🏽
by hhehgvhr on 2020/05/13 15:32
It works some times but it’s kinda confusing and I’m not sure if the translation is even right I thought getting this app would make it easier to do my Spanish homework but it’s not I would rather use google translate than this and I would NOT recommend this to anyone it’s just a waste of time.
terrible
by Longylover on 2020/05/10 18:03

by Kayla C💞 on 2020/04/15 17:35
I just wanted to say. A lot of reviews are saying that you only get five shots before paying, and that is true. However, you could always just delete it and redownload it. So.

Confusing
by PeachMaster808 on 2020/04/03 20:46
It doesn’t work and it’s very confusing. Once it did work but after that, anything I tried failed. When I scanned it, I wanted my Korean paper to translate into English. But it wouldn’t show it only Korean.
Oof
by hebdudbdhshdh on 2020/04/03 18:49
This app is honestly garbage. Like once it scans one picture it won’t do anymore. And it’s really slow

Used to work well
by Janitor_ofthe_highseas on 2020/03/16 10:39
This app was useful for grabbing text on pictures I didn’t want to freehand attempt to translate and now you only get a few uses. It also had a useful voice feature that would read entered text. It’s not worth the premium price though.
Stupid
by Iska wjdjd sjaiwcss on 2020/03/14 17:46
This wouldn’t translate and on MONEY it said 1 run. It did not translate correctly and did not load. Would not recommend.

Pop ups... about anything but what you are doing! What a waste of programming time and effort. Just copying and repackaging google translation. Should have given zero out of 5!
What the hell happened
by ShiroMichi on 2020/02/20 13:13
This app use to be great. A fantastic app for translating stuff when I needed it on rare occasions. I even purchased the full version a long time ago to help support the app and in case I ever needed more than three translations. Now a year or so later and they’ve updated it so you need a subscription in order to get the full version? Okay so you took away the product I purchased and now implemented this new subscription version. Great thanks. Don’t download this. Not only have they scammed old customers this way, but the app has gotten worse considering every one of my three times I tried to translate a small piece of text it came up with a paragraph long page of text.
5/5

A Rarity in Customer Service! Don’t let them get away!
by Laser121 on 2020/02/14 21:28
I’ve been using the Scan and Translate app for several years now, and find it really useful. However, with the recent update release, my old version was unable to be updated. I emailed Customer Support for assistance, and was totally blown away! I’m not a newbie, and have spent many years in dealing with tech support people so I rarely give five star reviews. Even though my old app wasn’t able to be upgraded, they went out of their to treat me fairly with my upward transition to the new app. Don’t let them get away!

Wrong translation
by WafflesMadeAtNoon on 2020/02/04 04:10
I was using this to get some spanish help and finish homework and i was working and it said that “They love” yet when i used a different translator (google, i typed it in) it said they hate it, and that one was correct. Since its spanish the sentence had No in it,. The app was a good idea it just has bad translations.
Finally a app that works
by xdizzy77x on 2020/01/30 02:37

Ads interrupt work after almost every scan
by ncknmk on 2019/12/24 18:52
I paid 32$ and I still have to get rid of the ad just to do another ad. This is kind of offensive to me. If I’d known I get bombarded with ads I would not have purchased.

by Epik_Memer on 2019/12/19 22:40
This is like really good for translating. But people shouldn’t have to pay just to know what something in a different language means. If you want to spend cash on this go for it. But I only got 3 or 5 chances to translate. It’s not the best but it’s not recommended for those who aren’t willing to pay around 40 dollars
waste of money

by AarishHassan on 2019/12/13 05:55
It’s a really nice app that I would recommend to people that are willing to pay money in this app. The translator works fine and is really precise. But for Someone like me or others who don’t spend money to buy premium or something it annoys us how we have to use the manual version of the app and can only use it 3 times before it doesn’t let you translate anything more and won’t let you continue unless you purchase premium. It’s a nice app but good for the people willing to pay, not so much for those who don’t want to pay monthly for a translator.

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.

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 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
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.
What the hell happened
by ShiroMichi on 2020/02/20 13:13
This app use to be great. A fantastic app for translating stuff when I needed it on rare occasions. I even purchased the full version a long time ago to help support the app and in case I ever needed more than three translations. Now a year or so later and they’ve updated it so you need a subscription in order to get the full version? Okay so you took away the product I purchased and now implemented this new subscription version. Great thanks. Don’t download this. Not only have they scammed old customers this way, but the app has gotten worse considering every one of my three times I tried to translate a small piece of text it came up with a paragraph long page of text.
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.
Broken app, does not work anymore
by Slotownoriginal on 2020/07/25 20:27
This app hasn't worked for some time now, at least when trying to grab text and translate from a gallery photo. It allows you to set up but then when you crop your selection and press the button to execute, it just gets stuck, every time the same thing. Which is a bummer because this used to be my favorite one and I've kept it on my phone a good 6 months going it would get fixed
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
Amazingly easy to use
by Thecalliefox17 on 2020/06/14 06:41
I love how easy it is to use it and since my phone has a good camera it almost always works, i also like the way it lets you crop out where you want to translate. The only thing I wish was different is that I wish I could speed up the speech.
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.
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.
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
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!
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)
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.
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...”
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.
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.
Just unnecessary flaws
by JtG CROO25 on 2020/06/07 22:57
It’s a translator, use your camera, trim the image, boom it translates. I just hate the fact that I have to pay money in order to use a camera, ads could’ve been fine. Like maybe one after every translation, but nope instead I gotta pay up to $33 to use an app that translates words. This will become obsolete when google translate adds a camera function.
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.
Update ruined the simplicity
by emerald_crows on 2020/10/16 11:50
This is a perfect example of the computer trying to be smarter than you and failing miserably. I had been using this app for travel for well over 3 years and have had no issues until I was met with an update that completely ruined the simplicity of it. No more snap and translate, 15 different menus to sort though to get to where you were in 1 photo snap before. Deleted immediately.
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.
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...
I’m sorry but it’s not fair :/
by UDDYFLALLCIHOUIATKS on 2020/07/31 16:52
I got this app and thought it would actually help, but it only works after three photos for me. It did work pretty well but I’m not buying a stupid crappy membership for more photos. Instead of paying for a membership I’m going to get Google Translate instead cause it’s WAY easier and you DON’T have to pay for a membership. Lol I’m sorry that I’m a young teen and I don’t have money, but this app is bull.
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!
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.
Perfect
by viperhumen on 2020/03/28 01:56
This app is amazing. Works perfectly I ordered through Wish The product came in Full Chinese this app translated The entire thing perfectly. Thank you five star all the way!!!!!!
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.
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 .
Not worth it
by Milanticpanda on 2020/06/07 10:58
The translation made no sense. Downloaded this in a pinch and couldn’t even use it. The translation was incomprehensible, which I was ok with because I could sort of decipher it, but you can only scan like three times and if you mess up one of those times you’re out of luck, and then after I tried the ad to get extra scans it wouldn’t even work. I’d just skip this one

Used to be free
by Shelia1573 on 2021/01/13 04:03
I used to use this app, but it is been a long time since I used it I opened it up and I saw that it was $32 annually and almost had a heart attack. I will be deleting it from my phone.
I hate it
by lucycat61 on 2021/01/11 20:41
I was trying to translate something and it popped up when your subscription for $32 and I just think that’s way too much and now I can’t use it so I deleted it 😡😡😡😡😡
Horrible
by Extra BAD on 2021/01/03 16:06
You need to pay to use this app after you take 3 pictures and the pictures don’t even translate correctly. I took a picture of 4 sentences and it translated 2 words
Premium access??
by xoMalloriexo on 2020/12/31 11:42
It works well for me, but the only issue I have is that you have to buy premium access to use it with unlimited tries. I could only scan three items for free when I had many more left to scan. As a result, I deleted the app. Not a good way to get more downloads. I suggest at least adding an advertisement feature for free scans.

Used to work .. but now it’s crap Use to use it to decipher & translate hand writing on back of old photos .. genealogy.. But now it’s junk .. utter junk ... your new UI does not recognize foreign language cursive at all anymore..nothing .. piece of crap updates didn’t fix it Gave you time to fix it .. but nah .. you wrecked it .. Subscription cancelled
Scan and Destroy
by Sxyknickers on 2020/09/23 14:12
You took a perfectly usable app and destroyed it. The changes make it unworkable as the options don’t allow me to move from saving and OCR to actually translating it. There is no swiping or button that will allow me to complete a translation. Utter crap!!
Then new version
by iy5012 on 2020/09/18 14:08
After I do the update to the new version of this app it stop working .Every time I throw a picture that I want to translate the app continue saying didn’t see any text so it’s not really giving me any translation and it’s very sad because a pay for a yearly subscription

This app is trash
by DK55555555555555555 on 2020/09/15 17:14
Do not get this app it takes your money and doesn’t even work.
Difficult to use
by ac gu on 2020/09/14 23:09
Since the new update l can not locate my saved text easily. I have been using this app for 41/2 years. First text grabber 21/2 years then scan and translate 2 years. Up till now it’s been a very reliable app. Thank you
Thanks for taking away the five free translations a day
by Museymayhem on 2020/09/14 05:16
Seriously of course you’d do that. Don’t even offer it in the first place if you’re just going to take it away. Thanks
Congratulations

Lo mejor en traslation
The app is horrible
by Spider3980 on 2020/09/09 17:34
I wrote in Spanish and I wouldn’t even translate anything it was translating to Spanish
Didn’t do anything
by Marty McGuy on 2020/09/08 07:15
Kept saying it couldn’t translate because maybe I’m not connected to the internet. Full WiFi bars and no trouble post a review... oh well.
I NEED A REFUND
by Kylie aka Hollywood!!! on 2020/09/03 20:57
The app forced me to pay 35$ even though I was trying a free trial. I do not want to use the app and have cancelled immediately. Don’t download unless you want premium honestly 35 dollars is not worth it. Very upset
I’m sorry but it’s not fair :/
by UDDYFLALLCIHOUIATKS on 2020/07/31 16:52
I got this app and thought it would actually help, but it only works after three photos for me. It did work pretty well but I’m not buying a stupid crappy membership for more photos. Instead of paying for a membership I’m going to get Google Translate instead cause it’s WAY easier and you DON’T have to pay for a membership. Lol I’m sorry that I’m a young teen and I don’t have money, but this app is bull.
Broken app, does not work anymore
by Slotownoriginal on 2020/07/25 20:27
This app hasn't worked for some time now, at least when trying to grab text and translate from a gallery photo. It allows you to set up but then when you crop your selection and press the button to execute, it just gets stuck, every time the same thing. Which is a bummer because this used to be my favorite one and I've kept it on my phone a good 6 months going it would get fixed
Great tool!!!!
by Leslie Castellano on 2020/07/20 14:53
I love it.
Text not found!
by Karosiv on 2020/07/16 07:01
This app literally doesn’t work anymore. No matter how many times I submit, crop, scan, etc. It never finds any text in any language! Completely useless now!
I paid the money. They upgraded & did away with my purchase
by Scot21t on 2020/06/30 11:24
Now the app has another app that does the same thing and requires more money. Good luck with your purchase. They will make another app, stop updating the app you bought and it will say “not available in this App Store or Country”. Not worth it. Try some other developer!!
Amazingly easy to use
by Thecalliefox17 on 2020/06/14 06:41
I love how easy it is to use it and since my phone has a good camera it almost always works, i also like the way it lets you crop out where you want to translate. The only thing I wish was different is that I wish I could speed up the speech.
I’m done!
by prinsessmeray on 2020/06/10 16:20
This does not work at all
Just unnecessary flaws
by JtG CROO25 on 2020/06/07 22:57
It’s a translator, use your camera, trim the image, boom it translates. I just hate the fact that I have to pay money in order to use a camera, ads could’ve been fine. Like maybe one after every translation, but nope instead I gotta pay up to $33 to use an app that translates words. This will become obsolete when google translate adds a camera function.
Not worth it
by Milanticpanda on 2020/06/07 10:58
The translation made no sense. Downloaded this in a pinch and couldn’t even use it. The translation was incomprehensible, which I was ok with because I could sort of decipher it, but you can only scan like three times and if you mess up one of those times you’re out of luck, and then after I tried the ad to get extra scans it wouldn’t even work. I’d just skip this one

Not easy to use or translating my text!
by awaomeappgame on 2020/06/02 08:43
I thought this would have a small tutorial. It does not. I finally figured it out and it translated nadda.
Useful, but slow
by Mauri-007 on 2020/05/30 21:32
This app continues to be incredibly useful and convenient (despite the freeform cropping) However, when I redownloaded it in May 2020, it became laggy.

Only 3 scans

You only get 3 scans which is hard when you have 16 different questions.
This App is really bad.
by _jonas72 on 2020/05/20 17:47
This is such a bad app. I tried to translate a book that was written in Italian I only tried to translate one page to English I had also already had some translations from my cousins but the app didn’t translate anything and didn’t even read the English I had already written on the page correctly. this apps 4 1/2 star rating is probably just paid reviews.
Why
by vasttelll on 2020/05/15 19:25
The translator is free on google so would I have to pay to use this one LOL
Google translator is better

You have to buy everything don’t waste your time on this app
It’s ok 🤷🏽‍♀️👎🏽
by hhehgvhr on 2020/05/13 15:32
It works some times but it’s kinda confusing and I’m not sure if the translation is even right I thought getting this app would make it easier to do my Spanish homework but it’s not I would rather use google translate than this and I would NOT recommend this to anyone it’s just a waste of time.
terrible

I just wanted to say. A lot of reviews are saying that you only get five shots before paying, and that is true. However, you could always just delete it and redownload it. So.

It doesn’t work and it’s very confusing. Once it did work but after that, anything I tried failed. When I scanned it, I wanted my Korean paper to translate into English. But it wouldn’t show it only Korean.
Oof

by Janitor_ofthe_highseas on 2020/03/16 10:39
This app was useful for grabbing text on pictures I didn’t want to freehand attempt to translate and now you only get a few uses. It also had a useful voice feature that would read entered text. It’s not worth the premium price though.
Stupid
by Iska wjdjd sjaiwcss on 2020/03/14 17:46

What the hell happened
by ShiroMichi on 2020/02/20 13:13
This app use to be great. A fantastic app for translating stuff when I needed it on rare occasions. I even purchased the full version a long time ago to help support the app and in case I ever needed more than three translations. Now a year or so later and they’ve updated it so you need a subscription in order to get the full version? Okay so you took away the product I purchased and now implemented this new subscription version. Great thanks. Don’t download this. Not only have they scammed old customers this way, but the app has gotten worse considering every one of my three times I tried to translate a small piece of text it came up with a paragraph long page of text.
5/5

A Rarity in Customer Service! Don’t let them get away!
by Laser121 on 2020/02/14 21:28
I’ve been using the Scan and Translate app for several years now, and find it really useful. However, with the recent update release, my old version was unable to be updated. I emailed Customer Support for assistance, and was totally blown away! I’m not a newbie, and have spent many years in dealing with tech support people so I rarely give five star reviews. Even though my old app wasn’t able to be upgraded, they went out of their to treat me fairly with my upward transition to the new app. Don’t let them get away!

Wrong translation
by WafflesMadeAtNoon on 2020/02/04 04:10
I was using this to get some spanish help and finish homework and i was working and it said that “They love” yet when i used a different translator (google, i typed it in) it said they hate it, and that one was correct. Since its spanish the sentence had No in it,. The app was a good idea it just has bad translations.
Finally a app that works
by xdizzy77x on 2020/01/30 02:37

Ads interrupt work after almost every scan
by ncknmk on 2019/12/24 18:52

by Epik_Memer on 2019/12/19 22:40
This is like really good for translating. But people shouldn’t have to pay just to know what something in a different language means. If you want to spend cash on this go for it. But I only got 3 or 5 chances to translate. It’s not the best but it’s not recommended for those who aren’t willing to pay around 40 dollars

by AarishHassan on 2019/12/13 05:55
It’s a really nice app that I would recommend to people that are willing to pay money in this app. The translator works fine and is really precise. But for Someone like me or others who don’t spend money to buy premium or something it annoys us how we have to use the manual version of the app and can only use it 3 times before it doesn’t let you translate anything more and won’t let you continue unless you purchase premium. It’s a nice app but good for the people willing to pay, not so much for those who don’t want to pay monthly for a translator.

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 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
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.

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.

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!
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!
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.
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.

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!
Amazingly easy to use
by Thecalliefox17 on 2020/06/14 06:41
I love how easy it is to use it and since my phone has a good camera it almost always works, i also like the way it lets you crop out where you want to translate. The only thing I wish was different is that I wish I could speed up the speech.
Tried to do it don’t know

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.

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.
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.
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
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!
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)
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.
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...”
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.
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 🙏🏻🌹❤️

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.
Just unnecessary flaws
by JtG CROO25 on 2020/06/07 22:57
It’s a translator, use your camera, trim the image, boom it translates. I just hate the fact that I have to pay money in order to use a camera, ads could’ve been fine. Like maybe one after every translation, but nope instead I gotta pay up to $33 to use an app that translates words. This will become obsolete when google translate adds a camera function.
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.
Update ruined the simplicity
by emerald_crows on 2020/10/16 11:50
This is a perfect example of the computer trying to be smarter than you and failing miserably. I had been using this app for travel for well over 3 years and have had no issues until I was met with an update that completely ruined the simplicity of it. No more snap and translate, 15 different menus to sort though to get to where you were in 1 photo snap before. Deleted immediately.
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.
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...
I’m sorry but it’s not fair :/
by UDDYFLALLCIHOUIATKS on 2020/07/31 16:52
I got this app and thought it would actually help, but it only works after three photos for me. It did work pretty well but I’m not buying a stupid crappy membership for more photos. Instead of paying for a membership I’m going to get Google Translate instead cause it’s WAY easier and you DON’T have to pay for a membership. Lol I’m sorry that I’m a young teen and I don’t have money, but this app is bull.
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!
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.
Perfect
by viperhumen on 2020/03/28 01:56
This app is amazing. Works perfectly I ordered through Wish The product came in Full Chinese this app translated The entire thing perfectly. Thank you five star all the way!!!!!!
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.
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 .
Not worth it
by Milanticpanda on 2020/06/07 10:58
The translation made no sense. Downloaded this in a pinch and couldn’t even use it. The translation was incomprehensible, which I was ok with because I could sort of decipher it, but you can only scan like three times and if you mess up one of those times you’re out of luck, and then after I tried the ad to get extra scans it wouldn’t even work. I’d just skip this one
