    Very useful. But 1 suggestion; [• Tap to Translate: Copy text in any app and your translation pops up.] Would you consider to make it "Select and translate" instead of copying text! I think this will be more useful. Full Review

    This is a great app. Offline packs of the languages respond to the heartbeat of mono and oligo-linguists who find themselves often in offline areas. I use them optimally to benefit from documents in unfamiliar languages and to prepare adequately for my active online interactions in forums with marked language diversity. The app's ability to translate road signs means you can't get lost in places you can't read/speak their languages. It's just amazing. Just be sure your phone has large storage space. Translators, however, need to do a little more work to minimize disjointedness, loss of meaning and ambiguity. Full Review

    Although no replacement for a human translator, it does a remarkable job of getting you out from a bind. some languages like Korean and Japanese are difficult to translate with appropriate context. It's best to use short words or phrases instead of translating entire sentences. Full Review

    I downloaded it before but it's not working sometimes and it stops translating when I'm offline even if i downloaded the language. It annoys me and I had to uninstall and download the app again in order to translate. Please work on this problem Full Review

    Instant translate is amazing. Please allow zooming as it is hard to translate a far away street sign. Also, allow a screen capture or share during pause so you can share/save the translated image without having to use an awkward screen shot key. Finally, please allow instant translate from a saved image. Full Review

    Easy to use, with a little problem... When I send a message I translated message to people they don't understand what it says. Either 1 a word was wrong or two the way a word or words are being put into a sentence wrong. Full Review

    Google translate it NOT 100% accurate. I can speak some russian and it said that Привет, я том, which says hi I am tom means hi,I have a volume.....what the heck... ( I did hi I am tom because that's one of the sentences ik in russian). Just learn the language you want to learn instead of using a translating app. Full Review

    Doesn't allow you the option to download to a fairly new phone phone with gigs and gigs of storage. Has some bug in it that falsely Says no memory, and it won't function in a way that will allow me to use it in the country I am going to. It is a real shame Full Review

    Gives me a no network error when using camera for Afrikaans to English translation. Wi-Fi working perfectly and it will manage to translate 4 or 5 times until the error comes and it won't work anymore. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app as well as the offline language with no solution. Full Review

    I use this translator to translate into Marathi. But I found its extremely bad translator. Why don't you have Marathi dictionary? This is the WORST translator that I used. Please delete Marathi language if you don't know how to convert English into Marathi. If you don't have enough Marathi words. EXTREMELY HATEFUL. Fu** off this translator. Need many..many...many changes. It makes a person stressful. Don't ever upload any app without perfection. Full Review

    The pop up button every time you copy text is a tad irritating. A better way would be to include "Translate" as an option as soon as you select text along with copy/cut/paste Full Review

    Useful only for word per word not for a paragraph. I could never trust this for translating English to my language (Filipino) or vise versa since it doesn't care for the usage of that word in the given sentence. Would like it if they could actually translate to something useful. Full Review

    Harrier Silverquill Published date: November 14, 2017

    Works great, except most of the time it doesn't work at all because of a silly "no network error when I clearly have both Wi-Fi and mobile data. Also don't see the point of having offline data packs if the app still won't work while I have "no network." Full Review

    As long as far Google translation is much better then its initial stages.. but there is frequent issues that I am facing in really translation is still irritating me.. for example the letter f doesn't translate as it is in while copying text it simply shows a box while copying so please try to fix these kinds of minor bugs which eventually plays lead role to give negative remarks on best running app Full Review

    `Tap to translate` option's `Show notification` setting always turns off "automatically" when set on at first time, so you need to turn it again. It seems that Google sabotaging this bug to collect more data about users and their behavior as usual. Full Review

    Nicholas Crim Published date: November 8, 2017

    When I have had the "what would you want your super power to be?" conversation, after dismissing the unrealistic options, I have always said "I wish I could communicate in any language". This app is the closest I can come to that superpower right now. And it's free. I can't overstate how amazing this app is. Whether it's in writing or verbal, you can translate it. Some of the translations are rough approximations, but it's better than no translation at all!! Full Review

    This has to be the most hilarious translator out there! A friend used this to send me an email! I am Québecois! He is American! He said hello and I understood a couple other things. No sentance structure so I couldn't understand the message! He said something about doing laundry and taking a walk! But it said something in your French translation about soapy legs and was waiting for them to be dead. Send just 1 sentence from this app and the French immediately know it is google translate! Very very very very very bad app! Full Review

    I've been using since I bought smartphone it an amazing app there's no doubt at all. But few things should have improved for people who loves your products, but there's not that much improved. You have to improve it by what people needing. I suggest you what should be improved. Need bookmark, save to folders, backup data offline, restore option and synchronisation... Full Review
