Review from Vincent Hum
Awesome OCR update!! Love the photo translation for Chinese, Japanese and Korean! Very useful. There used to be another Google app that compared photos to places. I tried using that for Chinese OCR but it did not work well. This app is working well so far! Thanks!!
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.
're-enabled and it works, so far so good v5.4.0.RC10.xxx: "Includes transliterations in Tap-to-Translate. Minor bug fixes. Android Nougat Support". 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 3.20.08(beta)
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.
For best results... Language is a complex thing. They're all different from each other with their own grammatical rules. This software isn't meant to translate full sentences. You'll almost always end up with something very wrong. Think of it as a dictionary to look up single words; you'll almost always get the correct translation. But because languages are so different from each other, full sentences can't be accurately translated with a machine.
Oflline packs I've already downloaded offline pack of a selected language, but when I try to translate something in the offline mode, it tells me that the language pack isn't downloaded or I should check my SD card. I know you don't care about the 5★ rating because, you're Google and you don't care about anything but please, fix it.
Help me keep up with the new words. Google translator easily make me keep up with new vocabulary that i've found in the articles that i peruse. It is really convenient if i want to look back what i saved in star sign in phrasebook. Unfortunately the explanation when to use the words is not available in mobile mode. Hopefully google translator will afford it in the future.
Suggestions as you type. Minor bug fixes.
