Nice but should be improved A very handy app to translate words ongo from other apps. I use the app to learn and practice languages and for this find the history feature especially useful. But, when you look up a word in the pop up window, IT DOES NOT GET ADDED TO YOUR HISTORY. The only way to do this is to open the app in the main window. This is quite meaningless. I give the app a rating of 3 until Google improves this!!
This app is amazing so far! I got it to allow me to play Japanese games on my PS4. Works wonders, I just hold the camera up to the screen, take a picture, select the text and almost instantly it is translated. This is simply amazing. So many apps out there do something similar but not as efficiently, usually only translate one language and they cost somrthing to download. This is free and supports multiple languages. A must own for any gamer looking to expand their import library.
Concept is great... but offline translation does not work Great app concept and would be higher rated if the Offline Translation worked. I have downloaded 5 languages while travelling for offline translation purposes, as sometimes I cannot access wifi/internet for translation. I have intentionally turned wifi off and have been in areas where I haven't been able to access wifi and the "downloaded offline languages" which appear in my downloads do not work. The app tells me there I have No Internet Connection and therefore I cannot translate offline. PLEASE HELP
I use it everyday and works perfectly for me. As I've moved from Switzerland to the UK with my family I have to go to school there as well. It happens many times that I forget how a word is called in English and therefore it's perfect. Of course you can't expect it to translate whole sentences. Nobody can expect form a free app of this size and support for dozens of completely different languages to implement grammar scripts for all those languages.
're-enabled and it works, so far so good v5.5.0.RC04.xxx: "Suggestions as you type. Minor bug fixes". Pleade add version number to change detail in "What's New". On HTC One [m7] Vodafone 4g, Android 5.0.2, Sense 6.0, SmartLauncher 3.22.29(beta)
Excellent translstor when it works.. but After Dec 2016 update it cannot even understand a small sentence in the source language English. It hears just a few words at the start but just refuses to hear the last few words and replaces them with words you didnt say. Very frustrating, as you cannot translate in complete phrases. Target language is Chinese simplified.
