Great app always useful -Offline downloaded languages: Found that when downloading offline maps I couldn't get them to work offline using camera translation. However my phone wasnt showing latest update and once check this it was working fine, could be my phone or Google play settings. -Widget wont work properly: Can't get widget shortcut to work for camera translation but can for all other translation methods. Text, voice and handwriting.
I use this app every day. Invaluable tool. Downloaded off line French and Chinese. Big files so use WiFi. Great when I get emails from friends. I try to read the email then paste it into this app to get a better translation. It really helps me to develop my language skills. Also really like the photo recognition. Useful for checking the ingredients on packaged Chinese foods. Funniest thing is setting the language to Hindi then translate English to English. Hilarious accent! I want to give it 5 stars, but there is always room for improvement.
Not as good as it was Something has changed with the latest update, it doesn't work as well as before for me. It seems too quick to minimise when I press enter. But I am using it like a Spanish dictionary, and before it would give fuller details of the word and it's usage when I press enter. It seems it has been modified to give priority to real-time translation perhaps, rather than as a dictionary.
Camera dark and instant not working For some reason when I try using camera to translate some text(no matter if it's instant or not) it is extremely dark. And nothing is visible. And sometimes I want to use instant translation and it says I can't and that I should download the offline package (but I already downloaded it). And then I have to go to settings and delete the package and download it again in order to be able to use it
Doesn't translate correctly Languages like Japanese is.....erm.......it doesn't translate correctly. And you know how in Japanese "you" is sometimes used for a person? As in instead of "You really are kind" it could be "Subaru really are kind..." as in.....(REM X SUBARU) you get it, right? Yeah, well....if there was an option like that then everything would make more sense. Also, try to translate properly.
This witchcraft allows me to view other languages as if they were written in my native tongue. It sometimes changes the words around. But most of the time it will beam the intention of the message into my head. With this I can now read words written with letters I know not how to read. A definite must use spell in this age of our planet shrinking.
