really helpful, especially given you can translate images, I mainly use it for Japanese, but it does have other languages, the fact that I can translate something with an image is so nice (apparently there is also a real time translate feature, but haven't tried out personally) the images don't even get saved to your phone, which is a plus to me, I don't need hundreds of blurry Japanese text in my album, and it stays that way.

Papago is fantastic! A must-have for Asian language translation (and for some others). In my book, Google Translate used to have no challengers since it moved to the neural network. I recently found Papago, and it is neck and neck with Google Translate. Perhaps slightly worse for more technical and long-winded sentences, but perhaps slightly better for short phrases. At any rate, what shocked me...really taking me aback...was the natural AI pronunciation (not yet with all languages, but including Japanese, (Simplified) Chinese, Korean, French, and Spanish, at least). It is far better than Google Translate and often could be mistaken for an actual human speaking! If just for that, it's worth checking out. You can also speak right into the app and the voice recognition is on point. I would like to see an offline mode for travel in the future, even if the quality in that mode decreases somewhat. Also, it would be cool to click on an individual word and get its meaning. Overall, one of the best translation apps out there.

For one don't expect anything besides Google Translate level translations. The reason I love this app so much are the features. I appreciate being able to hover over the translation and see the original text. I use both the website and picture translations features a lot, but it would great if I could be able to use both of the features together. Like if you're using a website it be great if you could be able to use picture feature in the instance it's not text but a picture on the website.
