    No dark theme no offline translation, 'good job', it will take no more than 2 years for u to fix it. Please add ability to create tabs in Phrasebook and to reorder words into them. Please add synonyms to Phrasebook coz it is usually needed a few possible translations to understand a foreign word. If there is only one word often it is impossible to understand what it means. Also please do the same to web version. If one word is being translated it can display synonyms in one line so there is no need to scroll down. Please add DARK theme for better night work and less battery usage on OLEDs. Full Review

    latest update is broken. tap to translate is not working properly. new vocabulary pronunciation function that is very annoying. every other time you try to listen to how a word is pronounced it is spoken very slowly. should have option to turn this off. tap to translate doesn't work well in Line. turns off quickly. often gives me vocabulary in thai that is for written use only. also many pronunciation errors for Thai words. Japanese to English translations are terrible. Full Review

    It's 2018 and this app still not capable of doing a good translation English to Chinese Chinese to English English to Swedish Swedish to English Arabic to English English to Arabic All of them far away from perfect, it's like asking six years old kid to translate the sentences. What happing google? All this AI and Deep learning investment and break through and you can make this app work properly? What a shame! Full Review

    Darn thing worked okay till the new update screwed it up. Now when you try to do audio translations, it stops translating after a few words. I suspect that it just stops the moment someone pauses even for a microsecond. Can you please fix it and let it translate once it listens to the entire sentence! Full Review

    There is no doubt that this is an absolutely amazing application. It gives you such synonyms/word meaning that you haven't heard of even being a native speaker. But sometimes the translations are wrong or not exactly fitting . So there should be one feature to edit/add a word. (Although it's available in the web version) Full Review

    It's a good app, very useful. Lately when I try to upload something to translate, it has been giving me errors saying I have no network (when I'm actually connected to WiFi) and I can't do anything. Full Review

    I use this app in thailand as I don't speak thai except for hello and thank you. With this you can easily get simple sentences across the language barrier like get people to help specific items in a shop or telling a bus driver where to go. You can also use it to improve your own communication skills. Feels like star trek! Full Review

    The way this app handles poor internet connections is miserable. It's supposed to work offline but it will try endlessly to get internet when there isn't a good connection. I have to use airplane mode to get it to work offline. Full Review

    I am in China with limited ability to read characters, the app allows me to identify them but will only give me pinyin (which allows me to read the characters) 10% of the time or so. Other than that it's still very helpful. Full Review

    Jordan Robinson Published date: February 9, 2018

    Google used to make it very easy to translate text from your screen. Now you have to download this app, screenshot the image you want to translate, navigate through the camera interface (which doesn't work on low battery, by the way) and boot up a file browser in the camera. That's just absurd. Full Review

    I've seen some people having trouble with new update regardless I'm sure the bugs will be fixed so I'll still give my usual 5 because I regard G translate as the best out there, however!

    Only drawback is that the translated word is not written in english it is written in the language which we asked for .....such as pronunciation should be in Korean language but that Korean word should also be spelled in English ..bcoz it is not easy to pronounce Full Review

    Sarah Korn Published date: February 17, 2018

    This generally works really well, but recently when I've tried to use the translate from photo function, it says no network and won't work. This is pretty frustrating, especially when trying to translate languages I don't have a keyboard for, and don't have the skill to painstakingly handwrite out each character. So, overall, very good, but this limited functionality is a bummer. Full Review

    Hello creators of this app I want to thank you all, this app which you guys created is the most useful app that I've ever seen,so thank you, thank you for letting us understanding different languages in the world. But if you'd add the (kurdish-sorany) language to the app it will be so wonderful, i am asking this because there are15000000 fifteen million people talking (Kurdish-sorany) i hope you'll do that for us. And thank you helpers. Full Review

    I think that this app is really amazing and useful tool for anyone who wish to use it . I only have one suggestion that just like English has the 'camer a input' so should all other languages have. Only then this app will be considered the best tool or app in one's smartphone. Full Review

    DL Jacobs Published date: February 20, 2018

    Fixed issue with accessing/updating offline dictionaries (thank you). Problem is that for about 5 months, the Tap-to- Translate only functions about 10-15% of the time. I have restarted, cleared cache, reinstalled, etc for previous several versions, no joy yet. Otherwise, it's a remarkably good app. Opportunities to make it amazing: 1) Needs rapid toggle defaults: should the output refer to a male or female or group, and formal or casual language, using imperative, or Auto (as now). 2) Option to put tap-to-translate result somewhere other than top (gets obscured by, or obscures other notifications). 3) Permit suggested alternates selection for a highlighted translated word (like the web client). 4) Super Bonus if you add support for a tiny country called Canada: I always have to edit your translations into Canadian English from either US or UK or Aussie English. It's an extra step, and there's a lot more Canadians than speakers of many of your other supported languages. Yes, we're polite, but we still aspire to be acknowledged after almost a decade of asking politely for this. Full Review

    I'll leave review below and rating until update works. I eventually found a site with old versions and rolled-back to a working version. I was happy with the app until last year when an update made it much harder to use and it started giving some stupid translations. After update offline translation stopped so spent hours forums then resetting the phone and reinstalling everything twice. Full Review
