Review from Corbin Poticha
Alternatives? The best thing about the desktop website version of Google Translate is the ability to see alternatives to each translated word. When will this be available in the mobile app?
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.
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.
Improvement needed This app should offer Sanskrit translation as well. Sanskrit is the most structured language ever known. It's such a pity that this app does not provide translation in Sanskrit. Also translation from English to Hindi and other Indian languages is not appropriate many times. These issues need to be fixed. Find some good translators dude.
Worst translation to Telugu I downloaded it because I read there is speech to speech between Telugu and English. The app later said it's not available. That aside I tried the English to Telugu speech to text. The translations are worse. The sentences don't follow grammar or not even close to what you say. I was trying very simple sentences. Is this a disregard to the Telugu language?
