Actually a life saver for anyone going to Korea, but I also used it during my trip to Japan and I couldn't have had such a smooth experience without it. Like every translator, it isn't always perfect, but it's usually so close that it doesn't matter much, and its getting better! The picture function has saved me quite a lot as well.

Edit: Whenever I highlight text, instead of showing "cut/copy/paste" it shows "translate" which makes my editing work impossible. There used to be a way to hide this. -4 stars. This translator is still much better than Google, it does not flood your screen with unrelated "results" hoping 1 of them might be correct... or demand your full attention while guessing how to view the translation without clicking an ad, leaving the page, or starting over.

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.
