it worked great! fairly easy to use. I did wish that I could do more than 280 spaces at a time. it makes translating entire letters and posts into a lot of work by having to go back and forth so many times. from the old post, to you, then to the new post, then back to the old post, then you, then new, old, you, new, etc. all of that right there was about 3 sentences. 3! that's it.

This update was a terrible idea. Tap to translate can only be used if the icon stays on the screen indefinitely. Not like prior to the update where the icon only popped up after copying a text, which was WAY better. And the actual current display is terrible compared to the previous version. Sometimes people just need to leave things alone if it isnt broken. If it ain't broke, stop trying to "improve" it

Hi there. To dismiss the Tap to Translate bubble, you can hold and drag it to the bottom of the screen. For full detail to make changes to Tap to translate settings, please visit this article: https://goo.gle/3vZ3INW. Hope that helps.

Update 9/2022.. the user interface really stinks compared to how it was a year or two ago. Also, the most negative thing about this app is the off-line mode isnt available unless a flag is generated by the OS being in 'Airplane mode'. It will tell you it can't translate because of a lack of a connection, but the instant you put it in the airplane mode, it works. How about triggering the off-line mode instead of the stupid message??
