I used this app for years. Recently, it stopped working. I downloaded the needed language before a trip last week. It told me it was downloaded. When I tried using it offline, it told me I had to download the language. It was super frustrating because i didn't have service or access to wifi. I have tried fixing it several times, and no matter what I do, it will not translate offline. It has gone from auseful app to a pointless one. The Help sends you to a forum where everyone has the same issue.

Hi Laurel. Let’s enable “Airplane Mode” from phone Settings to be completely offline & try again. If that doesn’t help, ensure that the correct languages are selected on the home screen. If they are, delete the languages using the Trash can icon - reconnect to WiFi or change your Data Usage settings & download the languages again. Thanks.

A once great app, laid low by terrible decision making by the developers/product team. You can no longer toggle between the original text and the translation when translating from an image. This is an awful decision since the translations are often not accurate and because sometimes a user may need the text in its original form in addition to the translation. I'll be using Deepl for now. It works better anyway. I do hope this gets resolved, though. I filed it via the help menu as well.

Works well for me. I used it to translate Spanish to English & it must've been correct most of the time because who I was talking to never mentioned about anything being out of sorts or whatever. Would be great to see a copy & paste option instead of always having to type everything in manually, but it's not that big of a deal. Overall it's very good at what it does & it's totally free, unlike many other apps of this type... 👍🏻😁
