Google Translate Comments & Reviews 2022

- Need to continually update and add new features

This app is so much better than Microsoft translator. I used it first set a lot of messages on social media to new friends only to find out those messages were a jumbled mess of random words. They assume you lack the skills and ability process thoughts into Russian even with translator. It’s hard to come back from. I love that you can translate live with the camera because a lot of times I’m watching a broadcast or something and trying to keep up with everyone. The thing however that frustrates me the most about all apps including this one is that they tend to stop listening before the conversation has ended. Whether I just push the button and let go or cold it during the entire time after certain. It’s stops listening and you have to stop the sound if you’re lucky enough to be able to rewind it. I would like it to be easier to use within an app and not have to copy and paste etc. but overall I really like it it’s the one I use most and I’ve got some I paid for that just don’t stack up.

- Cool google translator app

Plz add more languages all the time new languages even the languages rarely spoken in case someone wants to learn that language possibly and also add a updated brand new redesign of google translate so it will be better and cooler looking and the option to translate the letters translation language into pink text for girls or blue text for boys Keep up the excellent work please also add Bosnian Cyrillic pretty please and also add Armenian Cyrillic lots of Armenians use Cyrillic in Armenian language when typing and also if possible please add the option to type in Cyrillic for Finlandian Cyrillic language because Russia took over control of a part of Finland and Now Like 11 percent of Finland belongs to Russia so it makes sense to have Finlandian Cyrillic and please pretty please add the option to type in Blue color for boys on google translate and pink color for girls on google translate and not the pink color that is not attractive on google translate but the one that is pleasant and looks nice on the app when typing and same thing for blue color oh and one more thing please add the languages Irish for voice translation and transcribe fearure and Scots Gaelic for voice translation and transcribe feature and also please pick the 100 next coolest languages to learn that are different and add them to google translate

- Accessibility for Instructional Design

Google Translate is now a form of augmented reality and is adapted for educational purposes. This application provides users with tools to translate between languages and they now include an image option; users take a photograph of a sign, piece of paper, or other form of written text and receive a translation in the language of their choice. This augmented reality is ground breaking because this allows online learners to access content in other languages. The application also translates spoken word in real time, which allows all learners to access audio in written form, in their own language, online or in-person. This version of augmented reality that is adapted for education can be utilized in an online learning environment and can be utilized by instructional designers. One of the major challenges with instructional design is selecting the correct tools to build learning experiences. With this application, instructional designers are able to create a course in their own language and can make their lesson accessible to learners by recommending Google Translate for accessibility. I plan to utilize this in conjunction with my online lessons and videos in order to reach more students with diverse abilities and primary languages.

- Good app, but bugs or improvements needed

I really like this app, but there are many bugs and difficulty when using it. For example, when using the speech function it constantly stops working, saying there is a connection error where there isn't any. Or if my phone tilts a little bit on its side, the audio will stop and I have to start it all over again. This brings me to my next point: editing text. When you try to edit the text youre translating, its difficult to click it to be able to edit it or even find the spot you want to edit since the space is so small and cluttered. A function that will be really helpful is a pause/play button when youre having the text be read allowed and when the text is being read allowed, it doesnt stop if the device tilts to one side.

- Pages of Translation Lightening Fast, and Reliable!

If if you are using anything but Google translate to do your Spanish work for you, you are missing the boat. It translates whole pages of text instantly without error. It uses understandable language for our US - Mexico border area. I was using a different translator when I saw a doctor using Google to communicate with a Spanish only patient. That’s when I learned about Google Translate and switched. For the past two years, I have used a different Spanish translator/dictionary App. It was slow and tedious, only would translate a short paragraph at a time, but worse - it inserted words which were clearly wrong. One time instead of asking my gardener to complete a task, it inserted the word marriage into the sentence! His wife would have not been happy! Luckily I caught it before texting as I had to double- check every phrase. But now I no longer have to worry and each phrase is spot on. ( at least so far I think it’s been!).

- Google Translate needs a massive overhaul!

FEATURE REQUEST: Since most people are translating from a foreign language to their native language, it would be lovely if you could make your chosen language “stick” at the top of the list. I would prefer to have the languages I use most frequently stick to the top of the list. For me, they are: English, French, German, Latin, Russian, and Spanish. That would solve the annoyance of having to reselect one or more my core languages every time I deviate from my norm. I would like to include Croatian in my core list, but the machine voice for Croatian is unintelligible, even to native speakers because the sound quality is so poor and it speaks far too fast. HEBREW & YIDDISH: It is not possible to learn to speak or translate from either of these languages. Google has NO VOICE, machine or natural, for EITHER of them, nor does it scribe the translation using our common alphabet, Latin. At least then, I could make an attempt at the pronunciation of the words. I would cheerfully give Google Translate 5 stars as soon as these deficits are dealt with.

- Indispensable app

I use many different languages throughout each day, usually just little phrases here and there in my writing. This app is indispensable to me as I work, and the translations seem to just get better and better with each update. I’ve read a few of the negative reviews, and while I’m sure the inconveniences described by these folks are real, it also seems they me be expecting a bit too much. The app is very straightforward in its basic function of translating text that is input by the user. The app is also by Google, and thus it is highly aspirational in its features, and each update seems to bring further enhancements that may or may not be truly useful. I understand how this might get frustrating, but that’s just Google’s style. Eventually the kinks get worked out based on user feedback, which is how I think it should be. As far as a basic free translation app, this one is far and away the best.

- Hard to Use, Inaccurate, Barely Works

Many times when I record audio or pictures, the translation doesn’t even come up. The audio is worse since no matter what I do, speaking into the microphone is just a bust. I’ll say something into the microphone, and it won’t do anything. It doesn’t even load, it just indefinitely waits for me to say more. No matter how much I say, real words or not, it doesn’t ever even acknowledge that I’m done talking and if I hit any buttons, the X to close it or microphone button that you’d think would tell what it said, just cancel out of it. Not to mention, taking pics is a nightmare. You have to highlight with your finger the phrases you want translated, but you can’t move the picture around easily. So if you zoom into a certain part, it’s hard to zoom back out, and you can’t move the picture at all without zooming in or out. So if you zoom out in a way that makes the pic go off to the side, well, too bad. Why can’t it just detect the words itself? Or at the very least, why can’t I translate more then one thing in a picture, and do I have to take the same picture again and again just to see everything it says?

- Terrible design - using the browser version is better

I installed this because I frequently use the browser version in Google to translate between English and French and I thought the app would be more convenient. Took me less than a minute to see the flaws in it. It's a horribly designed app - for example, in the browser version you can "switch" the languages around to make the destination language the source language. This is really helpful if, for example, you wish to practice making sentences in a language and then switch them around to compare your sentence to how Google translates it. In the app, there is a switch button but it switches the TEXT between windows instead of just switching which is source and which is destination - so my French sentence goes into the English window and vice versa, meaning they don't get translated. This is either a really stupid bug or an inexcusable design flaw, and to be honest it's entirely what I've come to expect from Google software. There are ALWAYS really stupid bugs and oversights which people complain about for years but which they never fix. Oh well, uninstalling it now.

- Your best companion while traveling!

This is hands down the best partner you can have while traveling short of someone who know the local language. It’s just incredible what all it can do. It translates (augmented reality) live in the screen what ever you point at. No, no snapshots, Live, you point it at a Menu in a restaurant or instructions on the wall and it sees Spanish or Japanese or whatever language and you see English or whatever language you like. Then comes conversing with locals. It has a live translator which speaks the local language. My taxi driver knew about this app and used it on his own when tying to communicate with me. Amazing, you talk in English and it speaks it back in Spanish and your local language. Then the other person speaks in Spanish or your local language and it speaks it back to you (and also shows it on the screen) in English. That’s a live 2 way conversation. Something you saw in Star Trek back in the day. The universal translator. No it’s not done yet. Yes you need an internet connection (data plans) for the above two buddies to work. For those who don’t have a data plan or internet access it has offline translations. It won’t speak but will translate anything to anything as you type it in. I’ve travelled 4 continents with this app so far and like I said it’s my best traveling companion.

- Good but not what is needed

This program is useless when trying to overhear peoples conversations or listen to a speech. You can’t tell people to slow down and pause so you can translate each thing they said. That just does not work and is not practical. If I’m watching a show on TV in Chinese it is also fairly useless unless you want to press pause every few seconds. Also when people are talking, you have to tell them to speak slowly and carefully. That is ridiculous. And you have to wait until they have completed a sentence to translate. That is silly. What is needed is for the App to translate as a person is speaking. The user would just wear earphones an be able to listen nearly real time just like a real translator does. Or the translated words would appear as the person is speaking. The function that translates what is written kind of works. It fluctuate the transition consistently until you freeze the frame. Obviously this function needs improving.

- Super Helpful!

I use google translate a lot, as a Korean pop fan, sometimes translations don’t come out and I have to use google translate to translate what I want to see. Using the app makes it SO MUCH EASIER. I love the writing and camera feature. Sometimes the camera doesn’t always find all the words, but the feature is so helpful when im writing and I want to check my work, or if something is in a different language and I want to know what it is. The writing feature is also super awesome because I can write in the word in example, Korean and it translates it for me. Sometimes I do feel like the translations are not very accurate as in when I put the other translation through to check and it comes out as something different, but of course the translations can’t always be correct. Overall, the app is easy to use and I love it! ♥️🤠

- Flawed text scanning and translations

This is an amazing translation app, especially the real-time camera mode, straight out of science-fiction! However, it gives different results between camera Instant mode and Scan mode (often the Instant translation is close but a little off, Scan is more accurate but slower). A big problem with Scan mode is random omission of Japanese symbols from the source text and/or incorrect scans (wrong characters), so you’re unable to get a complete translation (frustrating). There are also frequent Google network errors resulting in delayed translation (or none at all), and frequent app crashes. You cannot pinch-zoom the camera, which is a problem on a smaller screen or text sizes. You can share/save only the translation results and not the scanned original foreign language text. I also don’t like how the camera mode always defaults to Instant instead of the last setting used. So although this is a convenient app for translations, it still needs a bit of work to get a higher rating from me.

- I love this app

I do not know enough Spanish and English is my primary language. So, I have had this app since Spring 2015 to communicate with my non English speaking friends who speaks only Spanish . It is so useful to show text info to a friend or to email to them. The speaker can talk for you in person. The reverse feature can help you check accuracy in the communicated info before you send email. I think they are getting better. Great in a debate with Someone. Your non English speaking friends can not fake ignorance: don’t know English to you. I have not had to use the picture translate mode much. I phone can Cut, Paste and Send in text or email. I am sure picture translate it just as good for reading materials. I use other language too and almost every day.

- Fantastic app

When I had this on my I pad I was so dumb because I didn’t know how to use it,* 2 years later * I was looking for a translator app on App Store and has to be free because I know my dad and mom can’t it for me so I looked and looked most of them wanted me to buy it and I can’t buy it so I looked and looked again and I found this app I download it and when Open the app it was free and you can use A lot of languages in the app, in most apps you could only use one language so that made me happy and the other stuff about it! I love the app! It’s the only app that I like to use for language! I hope other people like the app I saw some bad reviews I don’t know what’s their problem but yea I hope everyone likes it and yea! Thats all I wanted to say so yea, have a great day! :)

- Awesome, and some recommendation (for now).

This app is awesome! Been using it for a year now. I have some recommendation tho'. Do you mind adding a feature where it shows various dialect (accent), both in writing, speaking, reading, etc...? For example, Japanese. Japanese have three writing system (Hiragana, Katakana, Kanji) as well as Romaji, which is the Japanese way of writing words in English. So do you mind putting them in category or organizing them if translated? Would be nice if you add footnote for each words that shows like in what way can this word be applicable. This is the recommendation I have for now, and I do think it will change this app greatly feature-wise because there is still confusion because one word can mean many things, and can be used differently depending on context.

- Extremely handy, but not perfect...

This is useful when someone speaks to me in a foreign language when I’m abroad, and I always use it to translate text in things. But there are some problems. One is that the US English voice sounds a little robotic,so can you make it sound more natural? Another one is that you can’t save long phrases. Some are very important, but still can’t be saved, therefore I have to save it elsewhere, which isn’t very convenient. An older version allowed you to save long phrases! Why not anymore? Lastly, some languages can’t be spoken in the app. Some of them I really need can’t be read aloud, so I won’t be able to use the conversation function for those languages’ countries. If you fix all these bugs, I will give 5 stars.

- Works decently well, but has some problems

Google Translate certainly works quite a bit better than some random online translation service, but there are quite a few things that could be improved. Pros: - Does a generally good (though not perfect) job translating phrases and idioms. In particular, many expressions that mean something in one language but doesn’t make sense in another are correctly translated to the analogous expression in the other language. - Has an offline download feature that lets you translate without reception. This is of course very useful when your phone service doesn’t work overseas. - Allows the saving of translations for future reference, but that doesn’t seem extremely useful. Cons: - One cannot choose to switch between various forms of a phrase for languages that have multiple types of conjugations. For example, you can’t choose to have French use tu instead of vous. - The translation of a word does not show whether the word is masculine or feminine for languages where it’s relevant. - While the offline feature is useful, it’s *extremely* slow. In fact, the online feature can be quite slow sometimes too. I chose to give the app 3 stars because for me, the cons make it quite cumbersome to use this app as a general translation / reference manual.

- Are you kidding me???????!!!!!! Best deal ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Great in every way!!!!!!!!!!!!

Usually apps with this much deluxe to them are really expensive and you need to save up for them (Blech) so great job on that!!!!!!!! Also, it's really compatible and accessible (And right now it feels like only you guys and apple are the accessible apps) and so easy, and cool!!!!!!!!!! I use it to learn how to write French and also how to talk to my parents in Afrikaans and German which are there home languages, and it is a MUST-HAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now it seems ridiculous that they limit it to 5 stars!!!!! This is worth ********************************************* Thanks Google for making such amazing products, I'm a big fan (even though some of them I don't like as much as others) Continue, definitely!!!!!!!!!!!!!

- Japanese to English is just laughable

I use Google for translating German lieder and Italian operatic arias I am working on into English. Translations are fair to poor. But since I started living part time in Japan, I tried using it to translate Japanese Emails to English. I am moderately fluent in Japanese. The results were hilariously bad. For example katakana “kare” which can be translated as he, curry, boyfriend, etc. is always translated as curry, even though from the context it obviously means boyfriend. My name is Bill, this is katakana “biru” in Japanese but is translated as building in English, even when it is followed by “san” in which case it is obviously a name. Japanese sentences generally omit personal pronouns, which must be supplied in English translations. These are usually obvious from the context, but apparently not to Google’s algorithms, which almost always guess wrong. I can’t believe that ten years into the age of AI, Google translate could be so bad. It makes one wonder about other AI apps, such as self-driving cars.

- Was reliable but now its crap

i used google translate for everything. I live in a nonEnglish speaking nation so it came in very handy. but since the latest update I've had innumerable issues with it. I can't copy and paste it just puts in "TEST" when I paste something. the keyboard is messed up with emojis instead of words in the predictive text lines. the keyboard is laggy and often replaces correctly spelled words with incorrectly spelled ones. the keyboard has a globe symbol at the bottom that opens first with a list of emotions instead of the keyboard. it doesn't auto capitalize the letter of a first word in a sentence. it doesn't input a period at the end of a sentence . many times it doesn't input the letter I type. if i capitalize something i have to hit the shift typea the letter and hit the shift again or it CAPITALIZES EVERYTHING. all the letters appear capitalized on the keyboard regardless if the shift is on or not. it does this in other internet based apps as well but it started with the google translate app.

- Accurate Flooring And More!!

As a business owner of a home remodeling and renovations company here in North Alabama, this app is priceless to me. I can print out invoices, estimates and contracts in English. Point my hand held mobile personal computer (Cell Phone) at the paper documents and it will translate the words right from the document into any of the available languages (languages have covered all of my needs so far) and make another printable copy of said documents in the languages needed for customers. Email the documents to the customers for them to review, they can digitally sign them and return the original with their signature and then I can make a copy of the signed document and send the customer their copy!! I Love Technology!!! Thank You Google!!!!

- This App Changed My Life!!!

Being a Kansas girl and falling in love with a man from El Salvador was really frightening for me at first because of the language barrier. I’d taken 3 years of Spanish in high school (YEARS Ago) so when I went to meet his family for the first time I felt like I’d never be able to belong. But, with this incredible translation app I FINALLY am becoming fluent in Salvadoran Spanish!!! I can not only speak for Spanish now, I’m also now able to listen and understand almost everything. And, do you want to know the best part?!?! If I don’t understand a word, phrase, or even a text message from the family I can just open my Spanish Translation App now and type it in, save it, and learn even more Spanish!!! Seriously, get this app NOW!!!! 😊

- Good for practicing!!

Over the last few years, I have let my Korean language skills deteriorate. I have started to review my reading, writing, and speaking of Korean using Francis Parks books ( Speaking Korean Books 1 and 2). I do not, however, have any audio tapes to go with these. This app has been a lifesaver. Not only can I hear the pronunciation by typing in the practice sentences, I can also test my own pronunciation by using the English to Korean translator. I know I am pronouncing Korean correctly when Google Translate prints the text in Hangul. Loving it! FYI, for those of you who wish to learn the Korean language, I STRONGLY recommend learning the Korean alphabet first - learn to pronounce each character as a starting point. It will save you a lot of grief later.

- Worked well, sadly owned by Google

I used the program quite a bit and found it to work quite well. That said, I gave the program the four stars it deserved. Unfortunately it’s owned by Google and with ever increasing concerns over their lack of respect for privacy, political pandering, and shady business practices I deleted it as soon as Apple launched their free version. This was the last Google owned product I had on any device. Again, the program worked fine. Once in a great while it would get stuck but that was very rare. It seemed to need constant updates too. In fairness it had a lot more languages than the current Apple version but it also took up a huge chunk of memory. Given time I feel the Apple version will be just as good if not better.

- Current version default. - don’t like the change

I use google translate more than any app and I have loved it for years. The translation keeps getting better and more accurate. I give the latest revision a 2 because of a change that adds a step to translating during a conversation. The default used to be simply reversed when I selected the “translate to” language as “translate from” (ie when I was using “translate English to spanish” and selected “translate Spanish” and “to English” would automatically appear). Now I have to select both to and from each time- adding an additional step to each sentence. I don’t know why this change was made- if I needed an entirely different language I’d need to select it- it would never be “English to English” or “Spanish to Spanish”. Maybe this is an oversight but please fix it. Thanks very much and thanks for your app.

- Just wanted to say thank you!!

I’m so grateful to you for making this app available for me to use, because I have advanced Parkinson’s disease and one of the things that have been stolen from me with this disease is my ability to speak to my family members and my friends, ( and in case you don’t know much about this incurable disease.) I am going to try to make you aware of some of the things that I have come to call as things that this disease has stolen from me, and so, the reason why I’m so excited about this app is because I am now able to actually talk to my friends and family that I haven’t been able to talk with in over three to four years now! 🤭 Thanks again, Kathi S. Ohio

- Really good for offline translation

Google Translate (the app) is much better than the browser version. You can translate offline and that is great. They’ve greatly improved their translations (their Latin is still pathetic, as it has been for many years). It still has problems picking up on nuances and dialects of certain languages. If you are speaking an uncommon language, expect your translation to come out like something from a textbook or hahaha Google Translate. The AI picks up on some slang and common sayings, but it’s sometimes inaccurate. Also, the app drains your battery like nobody’s business. I was translating for ten minutes and lost 14% of my battery. My phone is also inefficient, but all my other apps are much better with battery power than Google Translate.

- Nearly perfect but lacks small features I'd like to see added

When I click on the text box to type, I'd like to see a "Paste" and "Paste and translate" box dialogue pop up without having to click the typing area a second time. Additionally, it would be nice to have a "Translate text from clipboard" option for Force Touch when on the home screen. Currently the only Force Touch capability is "Share Translate". Finally, and this is not for every user as it's a bit more technical, I would like to see a URL scheme so that external apps such as Workflow can quickly open Translate and use its functionality quickly. This is especially useful if one is consistently translating between three languages and needs to switch the language often.

- Uh ok..

Ok so, I have had Google Translate for many years. I loved it. A few months ago, I Tried learning Russian. I just thought it would be an interesting language to learn. Everything was awesome. I was writing it down, and barely memorizing it.. 😂 I loved (trying) to learn Russian until the very day we wrote this review. I was going to translate Hi, even though I had already memorized it. If you don’t know, Hi in Russian is Привет. It sort of sounds like ‘preeviat’ 😂, but when I translated it again, it had something different. It gave me this translation, “Здравствуй.” I am not saying it’s a bad app, I mean, it is only one language that I have noticed, but if you see this, can you please answer why it changed? Thank you so much! Bye y’all!

- Easily one of the most useful apps on my phone

It’s not perfect. Its reliance on crowd sourcing leads to some questionable translations, especially in languages with fewer native speakers (I’m looking at you, Norwegian and Albanian). And its insistence on using the respectful second person can lead to some laughably formal translations in other languages (hi, French and German!). And while I’m excited that they’ve added basic definitions when you look up a single word, I’m really looking forward to the day when they also provide verb conjugation charts. But it’s the most comprehensive, easy to use translator out there. Most languages can be downloaded for offline use. And nothing else competes for the number of languages available.

- Awful but can be useful

The main issue with this is if you’re trying to translate certain languages such as Japanese or Chinese, it’s unable to show me what it’s saying because one character can be a big word, but it’ll display that word huge and block out other words. If any words are in a font that aren’t just straight lines then it has a lot of difficulty reading things. Also a strange thing I find is that no matter what language, if it can’t see the words, it’ll put out random words, most commonly it says “mosquito” or “death” which is a bit creepy and odd. It will also pick up other edges of the scenery and translate those non-word images into “mosquito” or “death” or something else not related. I get that we don’t live in 2058 yet but these issues with the app aren’t new. But what else do we have that even works remotely as good? Maybe someday it’ll be better.

- .To /Google Translate #kurdishsorani

.To /Google Translate Greeting of peace and prosperity Above all, we would like to extend our sincere greetings for the “Google Translate Community” staff. we would like to request our language to be in your site, as you see Kurdish-Sorani does not exist in the list of Google Translate, the language is spoken in Northern Iraq , Kurdistan Region officially , and at the same time the language is spoken in Iran, Iranian Kurdistan, or Eastern Kurdistan, More than 45 million Kurds need the language in the world, and it is spoken and official in northern Iraq /Kurdistan Region, government uses the language in all the parties of government , it uses in schools and directorates , so please accept our request , it is very important to students and people even for government and merchants, teachers, students, and so on . We need Kurdish sorani on Google translate, so that we get rid of having struggles in accurate translation from other languages. Thank you, best regards.


My grandma lives in Romania and she is coming to visit in TWO days! But she doesn’t know English and I don’t know Romanian. This app is cool because I can say anything I want in English, and then I tap the sound icon and it says it for me! Goodbye long, confusing words, hello google saying it instead. The only thing I think the devs should fix is that when I put it in Conversation Mode to practice, I have to say the word in English instead of typing it, so sometimes my phone thinks I’m saying a different word then what I want to say. But besides that, I recommend this app and I love it! I just need to remember to bring my phone everywhere and keep it charged so I can talk to my grandma when she visits.

- Useful, but be cautious

I use google translate all the time and find it useful to define word and phrases. However, when I try using the translations to converse with native speakers, they often do not understand what I am saying because the translation is off or completely out of context. For example “I need some bags” translated into Spanish came out as “I need some pants” when translated back to English the way any normal person would speak. I had this same problem using google duo to learn languages, as the AI translations seem too rigid to mimic how language is used in conversation. The one feature though that is SUPER COOL is how you can take pictures of writing in any language and it will translate the written words for you! This is awesome! So, this app definitely has some redeeming qualities, in my opinion

- A must have when traveling

Recently back from Colombia, and having the translator made certain encounters almost life saving. I had an accident, and had to rely on the goodness of strangers for assistance in getting to the hospital. Unfortunately I was far from a hospital and it took many people to make it all happen. Luckily I had the translator and everyone was able to understand my situation, and I was able to get to the hospital and all ended up well. In case of a poor data or WiFi I only discovered later than I could have downloaded a language - that would have helped greatly on less intense situations. Next time for sure.

- Small Mistakes here and there but a lifesaver

Could not live without this app! occasionally some translations are wrong (depending on the language) but that’s as to be expected when there isn’t always an equivalent to it in the same language. i would REALLY love it if the developers would add Slovenian to the text to speech list! it would be SUCH a lifesaver! oftentimes pronunciation can be really tricky in slovene for native english speakers and it’s hard to find many resources that have audio files for the words. it would really mean a lot to me and many others who work hard to find resources to learn it from (which can be few)

- Great App Especially In China

We just got back from six weeks in China where we used the app frequently. Sometimes for a simple translation- “do you have almond mile” to a very involved one in the phone store trying to get a Chinese sim card and set up a pay plan. We thought it was magic. We’d say “How much is it to switch the sim card” the app would then say this in Chinese. We’d give the phone to the clerk who would give the answer in Chinese and hand the phone back to us to hear her answer in English. We must have gone back and forth ten times or more. We got the card, set up a plan. Piece of cake.

- Saved my Trip

OMG!!! When you are a lone person in Japan and not a very good Japanese vocabulary it’s tough to get around and understand the language. Man this app got me through a couple of conversations that saved my trip and got me back to the airport in time to get on my connecting flight on a very long layover. Is that awesome or what ? I love this app. I learned a few phrases and words that I didn’t know and was able to ask directions and get on the right bus and get back to the airport. But also was able to ask about a few movies I was searching for and a few action figures I was looking for. Awesome app.

- Update suggestions

The app is great and helps when I don’t understand a language but I have an idea what if you guys make it a keyboard for iOS that you turn on it the settings like you did food Gboard so when you want to translate something you don’t have to leave the app your on to use it idk about anyone else but I think that would be useful like even if you didn’t turn the hole app based around that just have a setting in the app to let you turn it like that on and off and make it with the allow full access thing that would be cool to see added thank you ~Brian

- This App is like Science Fiction!

We just got back from two weeks in Italy and even though the majority of the people we encountered spoke some English, this app came in handy several times. The app let me communicate with our Uber driver who spoke no English just by speaking in English and it repeated what I said in Italian without pressing any buttons and the driver spoke to me in Italian and it repeated in English with no stopping. The most amazing feature was being able to hold the camera up to a sign a sign and the app translated the it into English magically before my eyes just like something from a science fiction movie. This app is amazing!

- i love you google translate

Dear google translate, you are single handedly the reason why I am passing French and I want you to know that you are amazing, incredible, wonderful, lovely. I just want to say that if I had the option I would give you more stars. I love you more than Harry Styles and that is definitely saying a lot. This app is amazing and now with the camera feature !!!! I am truly proud of this apps glowup and how much love you have shown to me and students worldwide who are taking french. Keep staying strong queen I hope you know that you are AND WILL BE appreciated 🥰🥰 i am currently giving you an air kiss bae.

- You Cannot Go Wrong With Google!!

I have had this app for sometime and used it last summer in Germany. The only sales person had been on the phone for over 20 minutes. I typed in "watch in front case" and turned my phone so she could see it in big letters. She shook her head yes and finally got off the phone. I did buy the watch. Next week I am going to Greece. I need to use the translation app off line. Google says they can do it and I believe them. Have fun with different languages, but remember how big Google is and they will do their best to help!!

- Severe problems to automatically detect languages.

The current version of translate appears to have a problem of detecting the correct language. This hasn’t been a problem in the past. This happens In conversation/dual language mode were no choice/preference for one of the two languages pairs is set. Here, the app would quite frequently “translate” English sentences into English rather then translating them into German or Spanish. This is a very avoidable flaw. For example the spoken sentence “Hello how are you doing?” Is just repeated as “Hello how are you doing?” rather than translated to “Hallo, wie geht es Ihnen?”. A simple comparison of the input sentence and the translation should illustrate this problem to an evaluation / quality control algorithm to assess this problem on your server. No artificial intelligence needed. Please fix this!

- Great for

A wonderful product. And yet, it is impossible that the googs are unaware of the sexism issues they designed into it, and more than dismaying that these have not been corrected. I think all female users of Spanish and Italian translations to/from English should consider a class action lawsuit related to the constant slaps in the face we endure from this app's male-gendrist design: 1) Google assumes and defaults to male subjects: Frequent occasions where the app provides a translation with the pronoun(s) "he, him, his" when "she, her, hers" would be equally valid. There is no reason any longer to use male as the default translation gender. Both sentence versions should be offered by the app, with the female version shown first at least half the time. 2) Google chooses different translations by gender; e.g. the app makes different verb choices depending upon whether the subject of the input sentence is male or female. Example: "She's busy." È impegnata. "He's busy." È occupato. I am beyond irritated. I'm angry at rich powerful google for making half of us put up with what the other half doesn't. Fixing these isn't rocket science.

- Disappointed

I had high hopes for this but can see right away it will be useless for my needs. When trying to communicate with someone in real time, the last thing you need is favorites or history, yet that keeps popping up and taking 75% of the screen and you cannot easily get out of it. The most important thing is the swap function so once you translate something you swap it to make sure it translates back correctly so you don’t cause an argument or say something stupid but the swap here doesn’t work properly at all it just swaps language positions for the next person to type rather than swapping the translation itself for checking the accuracy of the translation in case you need to reword what you want to say. You got this right in your browser but not in your app. Disappointing.

- This app has been a lot helpful to me

I was able to teach kids from middle eastern countries using the google translator while they had no English language skills. This app make life easier for people raveling to different countries or for people interacting with people with other languages. There may be some issues here and there while translating English to Arabic but it's gonna do at least 75% of the tasks.. having this app made it very easier for me than not having it.. so kudos to the team at google working on this se beautiful applications and making life easier..

- Want the female voice back for KOREAN

I have been using the google translate app for over a year and it’s default for English to Korean or Korean to English was always a female voice. About 2 weeks ago, this changed over night without noticed. Now, the Korean voice is default to a male voice. Why did you take away the female voice? I am learning Korean and a female. I would be willing to pay for the app if there is an option for female voices. And if you are trying to improve the app, users should be able to have an option to choose the voice gender. Google taking away the female voice just doesn’t make sense to me because you already have that function to begin with.


Dear Google team I hope this message finds you well. We are a group of linguists in Kurdistan Region of Iraq. We kindly request and ask for your help to add (Kurdish-Badini) to Google. There is ( Kurdish-Kurmanji ) currently. However, more than 2.5 millions Kurds speak and write ( Badini ) , which is has Arabic alphabet style. Your support of adding Kurdish-Badini dialect will help this large accent speakers to search and access Google more smoothly. Our group is ready to support this accent with words and dictionary once you add it to Google. We hope that you review our request. Looking forward to hearing from you.

- Worthless

This was my go to app for translating back and forth between English and Spanish and Italian. Now it’s almost useless. Most of the time now I keep getting an error message saying google translate was unable to establish a network connection to fulfill my request and to check my network connection. However, my internet connection is fine. It works both on my home WiFi and in my phone’s 4G connection. What’s weird is that it didn’t work while I was on my home WiFi, so I disconnected and used the app successfully on my 4G. Then after several successful translations I got the same message. Earlier I got the error message which went away after uninstalling and reinstalling the app. I’m just done now. Can’t wait to find a translate app that works.

- Great functions, but translation limitations

Handy app for translating blocks of text and text in images. However, it frequently gets Swedish-English translation wrong and also will translate each word in a phrase separately and literally, as opposed to what the phrase would actually be/mean in English, although it does seem to do this for some phrases which is very handy. Also the alternative words dictionary is very useful for understanding the meanings of words and their uses different contexts within a certain language. Sometimes the word it suggests you use does not take the context of the sentence into account, so you end up saying something very literal. Improved Swedish translation would get this great and function-rich app 5/5. Also, whenever I change the language out of Swedish, Swedish disappears from the shortlist/favourites languages at the top, so I have to scroll all the way down to Swedish again to select it, even though I have it downloaded. Developers should change the top list to be recently used languages for the user, rather than the most popular languages it seems to be basing the list on.

- For me just one place is imperfect.

All in all the app is great, thank you creators! I often use it while reading paper books. During this process I first read a page or a chapter, underline the new words and then translate them consequently, e. g. 20 words in a row. And here comes the sneaky moment: when you expand all the translations for a word, and then press X to clear the word area, you need to press the word area again for cursor to appear. This is really annoying when you do a lot of translation. I can’t think of a scenario when you delete the original word and don’t type a new word right after that. Maybe there’s a reason for leaving this functionality as it is, otherwise I would be so very happy if you change this behavior for just one click! Regards, Jinny

- anon

For someone who speaks, read and writes in 8 languages fluently and currently learning a 9th, It’s fine if you’re able to understand enough of the translation to “just get by” but it’s got a very LONG way to go and of fixing the multiple issues before getting translations 100 % correct. It translates to the “proper” grammatically correct ability of languages only, not understanding that in 2018 NO person of origin speaks this way, yet in “dialect” forms of their birth region. For the record I’m fluent in Cantonese, Khmer, German, Greek, French, Italian, English and Korean with French, Italian, Greek and German being my mother languages. English is my 4th language, and Cantonese, Korean and Khmer self taught for Business purposes and my current language of Indonesian being self taught at present. I am 29 years of age, however it’s never too late to learn something culturally new for your future such as that of another language.

- I need a 1000 words & a picture to explain

Even thou I don’t agree with all translations let’s say about 70% I remember like it was yesterday few years ago i think 5 years ago I cried with like blazing fire in my heart for hours and hours because this app helped me translate and understand just few words i think maybe 20 words from the Holy Quran القران that night, and I continue using it with precaution till today حتى لو لا أتفق مع جميع الترجمان، دعني أقول حوالي 70 ٪ متفقاً، أتذكرها تلك الليلة كنها البارحة قبل حوالي خمسة سنوات بكيت لساعات وساعات و بقلبي يهزني الدموع تذرف لأن هذا التطبيق ساعدني في ترجمة و فهم كلمات قليلة فقط أعتقد ربما 20 كلمة من القرآن الكريم في محور تلك الليلة، وما زلت أستخدم مع الحذر حتى اليوم.

- Excellent app

This app is amazing and has helped me so much in communicating with my partner. Falling in love across languages presents some unique and interesting challenges, and this app has helped immensely. Hilarious at times when it throws an incorrect word in, but mostly this app is great and gets better with each update. One feature i would love to see is a translation of the definition down the bottom. It’s great to have the definition there, but i am often translating a spanish word to english, so it doesn’t help to have the definition in spanish for me.

- Good Enough xD

This is a really good app to use if you are travelling around the world, speaking with foreign people, or just learn why a word is in a different language. Unfortunately, it’s translations aren’t always accurate. But the reason why it’s still a 5 star for me is because these mistranslations can sometimes be funny. Phrases or just random letters can sometimes lead to random results. For example, if you type ‘ob am ap ri sm’ under the language ‘Somali’ into ‘English’, you will get the phrase ‘I can see you’. BEST. TRANSLATION. APP. EVER!

- It’s extremely helpful

I actually used this to translate and guide around in steam , which worked wonderfully , but using the picture mode sometimes it separates the words into different sentences . Other than that , when first getting the app it was automatically changed to “English to Japanese” so I was stuck a little at first. Anyways , this is a well set out app and it definitely does the job 👍

- Great app on the move but live recording needs work

Live offline downloading and the goggles feature, excellent work from google there. However the live conversations (listening) section is extremely buggy , sometimes it keeps listening when you don’t want it too when you want to keep the translation on the screen, and other times it just refuses to listen at all - there are workarounds but this is just sub par in this otherwise great app. If Google finally fixes that very annoying feature then I will improve my rating.

- Kinda works but privacy nightmare

Written languages, most common, are reasonably ok. Camera translations will see your success vary wildly. Voice to voice is ok for basic stuff but requires internet connectivity at all times. Any camera images you take are kept by google. There’s a toggle in the privacy settings to disable google from keeping the images. But the toggle auto resets back to ‘Allow’ all by itself !! No idea why developers would build a toggle that is pointless and obviously privacy rating for this has to be zero. All images go straight to google forever.

- Highly recommended

Voice translation really useful as you can hear the translated word as well. It recognizes my voice accurately too. Also image translation pretty cool with instant translation of signs and written texts just by aiming camera at the object. Only downside is if no WiFi or data connection, then the only available translation is by typing the actual word (ie can’t do image or voice translation)

- Good app, great for traveling

It’s not perfect but considering what it does it is pretty impressive. Will definitely get you out of trouble if you’re in a bind. Also, lol at ms I can speak 8 languages two reviews below this one. Your whole review was basically a look at me humble brag with no helpful information about the app at all, I’m sure there’s better places to talk about yourself than iPhone review pages.

- Italian

I am enjoying the App. And it is great to have this resource during the pandemic lockdown. I am learning Italian to keep my brain ticking over as I cannot get to my face to face class at the moment. My only gripe is that the playback voice speaks very fast and sometimes I am unable to get the exact pronunciation of some words or phrases. Is there anyway I can slow the translation playback. This would help greatly. Thanks

- Great app

You can do lots of things using this app. Had and old photo and wanted to read the text on it, but it was so faded could not even read it properly and use google translation: was able to get the text. Amazing. Note had to use two phones, one to capture the photo from other phone(second phone).

- Conversation needs perfect data connection

Despite having the foreign language downloaded, the conversation mode does not work (or takes a very long time - which kills the conversation!) if the data or wifi connection is not perfect. Sometimes this happens with the photo mode, too. Overall it is an extremely handy app.

- Incredibly useful app

This app has been incredibly useful in my lifelong pursuit learning new languages. It is extremely helpful and getting better all the time. One small feature for consideration please would be the ability to organise saved words by language. Thanks and keep up the terrific work!

- Great features, horrible UI & Dark Mode

The translation component for the most part works well. Could it do with improvement? Of course, but it gets you by, as does the OCR. However, the current implementation of Dark Mode is horrific, a fake dark mode colour scheme that clashes and doesn’t use “True Dark Mode” colours prevents me from giving this a better rating. What’s worse is that it’s inconsistent with other Google owned apps that utilise Dark Mode.

- Good but would like to see Cantonese

Obviously, it gets a lot of the grammar wrong but like what do you expect for a translator? So better to translate short phrases/sentences. I would like to see Cantonese. There are 60million Cantonese speakers, about the same number of Italian speakers. Would really help to see a Cantonese translator. Though still quite useful and helpful.

- Very Ordinary Application

Only translates the second or third attempt of spoken English and Chinese. Suffers from the slightest network variability by failing totally. Cannot pickup the end of phrases nor sentences. And often stops listening before the speaker has finished. Has a very poor understanding of Chinese and English, it cannot recognise syntax nor grammar correctly. Is totally lost with pronouns. Is not an offline translator. After attempting a simple conversation it often fails terribly to be seen as a another tech-joke. There are voice translators out there that work.

- Traditional Chinese in alternative translations?

Bug: If you’re translating Chinese to English and enter Traditional Chinese characters, the alternative translations displayed below it are all shown in Simplified Chinese. (if you’re translating the other way, from English to Chinese (Traditional) it shows the alternative translations in the correct form)

- English to English help kids with reading difficulty

In the last 6 months my child was using the google translator as a tool to help with his reading difficulty. It was a great tool which we set up as an English to English translation. Unfortunately after reloading app to his new iPad we are no longer able to set translations English to English. Hopefully this is just temporary issue and developers will modify this function as it was extremely valuable assets for kids with reading difficulty.

- Great app

I use it every day and most days more than once. Today I wanted to translate from English into Flemish but Flemish was not available. Closest I came was Fresian and Dutch. This is the first time I have not been able to find the language I needed. In spite of this, five stars.

- Great app but needs male & female voices

This is a great app and the translations are accurate. Just one suggestion though I think this app would be much better if we had the choice of a male or female voice. And also being able to slow down the voice would be great as well. Thanks.

- Japanese translation needs romaji or hiragana

The romaji or hiragana of a translated Japanese word needs to also appear when using camera scan mode. This would speed things up a lot when I want to quickly retrieve the readings of a number of words on a scanned page.

- Camera doesn’t work with new iPad Pro 11.

The camera doesn’t work with the new iPad Pro 11. Get an error that says ‘The Camera is not available. Exit split-view to enable camera’. Am not in Split view, have tried turning off allowing multiple apps. Suspect it’s the fact there’s no home button and you will always have the app bar to access apps. Others have reported the same issue online. Only use it for the camera translate.

- Pretty good

Pronunciation is pretty accurate as well as most translations. I don’t know if this is a feature (because I can’t find it anywhere), but could you add a feature where you can manage the speed of the speech? Thanks :)

- Thank you Google Translate

Would have been so lost without this app. I travel quite frequently n finds it very useful. Does give me giggle every now n than with certain incorrect translation but it gives one an idea.

- Fantastic app despite a few hits and misses

On a trip to Japan, just realised how handy the app is. The camera feature is gold! Sometimes a few issues but overall indispensable

- Indispensable

This truly is a traveller’s best friend. The camera translation is such a great feature and the addition of the offline feature is genius (so long as you have the forethought to download the languages first). A really first rate app.

- Happy now

8 years I had trouble communicating with my in laws. I updated and tried the new conversation device. It was fantastic to communicate with them. Well done and keep up the good work.

- Books

Was reading a book that had lots of spanish. Of course, it didn’t really matter to read the spanish but my curiosity got the better of me. Of course, the live camera feature is a bit glitchy but it still helped me understand it!

- Must have

Thank you so much Google for this App 👏 I now can talk with my friends and can be able to understand them better and vice versa. I can’t imagine my life without it 😍❤️💙💚💛💜

- Camera translation response speed is a delay and become slower than before

Camera translations speed is a delay and become slower than before

- Great tool from my experience

This app had been a metaphorical life saver so far in Italy. The camera tool works a treat but must be kept steady or it gets a bit glitchy. Definitely worth a shot if you’re looking for a translation app.

- Spanish on iPhone

Using for my travels to South America . Downloaded offline Spanish. Works well with Net connection but not offline , maybe because of iOS ? But you can text what you want to say and comes up in Spanish, just not voice , unless connected to Net .

- Doesn’t translate sentences

I love google translate and it’s sooo helpful, but the reason I rated it 4 stars was because it never translates sentences well. Like if I wrote out a sentence it would autocorrect each word but the grammar would be horrible

- Average translator

After using it in china on a daily basis I have to say that its ability to translate is limited, the annoying problem is that it keeps cutting off during transactions or conversations, the offline mode is almost useless.

- 素晴らしいアプリ!

An amazing way to learn any language! Now I know my favourite language, Japanese, and can identify simple greetings. I recommend this app to anyone who has interest in learning something new!

- Google translator pop view

Can you tell me plz why google translator dont pop up when copy text like andriod phones

- Great app!

Google translate is a very handy tool, and it has helped me through many projects. I recommend it to anyone who wants to try something new or wants to learn a new language.

- Excellent

I recently got a computer but is was in Chinese and this app allowed me to chnage the language back to english by translating all the words with very good accuracy.

- Love it....

This app is one of the best to translate...I’m glad I’ve downloaded even translates’s definitely worth 5stars from me...thank u so much for an amazing translator.

- Awesome

Awesome app. Use it daily! But in the past 2 days it won’t work. I open the app and it glitches out for 2 seconds then closes. It’s the only app that is doing this on my iPhone. Please fix!

- Great app

Translating English to Chinese, It is very good compared to other apps. It does pick up the wrong words from the microphone occasionally, but that’s usually due to noise in the background. Very happy with it and it’s free

- Immense Help

Every translator isn’t perfect with only certain aspects of a translator an inability to translate a certain text. I personally only ever use a translator overseas. Furthermore, I love this app in any situation overseas.

- Deleting

I want to delete unwanted languages but It doesn’t allow. Please fix. Otherwise I use it all the time. Thanks

- Spanish

Spanish is cool and I love the language but there’s some words that need to be fixed but google translate has helped

- iPhone user

I downloaded Google Translate as iPhone doesn’t include the Greek language, this app does. It works well.

- No longer working properly

Hasn’t been working properly since iOS update. Translations not working, cannot delete sentences when pressing cross. Have to continuously restart app.

- Why?

The audio button for the Chinese translation is something I use a lot however it suddenly changed from a clear female voice to a robotic male voice that cannot pronounce its words... I hope you change it back

- Good google translate

I like the way you do it for learning and we can get better thanks!

- Translation

Translation works well, however the off-line option does not work unless you’re connected to the Internet.

- Add Grammatical Gender!

This is a great app and it works fantastically for many languages. The one thing I really want to see added is grammatical gender for languages such as French, Spanish, and Italian. I often find myself using google translate but then having to use a second app also to find the gender of the word in question. When you translate a single word or a sentence, it should say in small letters above the word “m” or “f” for masculine or feminine. Otherwise great app, but this change would be much appreciated!

- How google has fallen

If this was just a few months ago, I would be giving a five star no problem. However, I have noticed quite obviously that google has but "fused" some languages together. Languages such as traditional and simplified Chinese. I used to be able to switch between the two. Not anymore. The only reason I even installed Google Translate was so I could interpret not only from simplified to traditional and vice-versa, but also because my family uses traditional. In fact, other countries also use traditional Chinese. Google didn't just disappoint a fellow user giving a review, but disappointed many a countries. I hope you realize this Google. Thank you for your time. (If you even read this)

- Отлично гуд очи вах вах вах

Все отлично Приложение просто супер Я отвечаю отличное просто Советую воспользоваться

- French Small Problems

I was given words to learn by my French teacher. They included: Petit & Copain etc. I was told to out them together, I did. Together they mean ‘small friend’. Google translate turns the word to ‘boyfriend’. I’ve also seen other mistakes, not just in French. I believe everyone would be more appreciative if you fix these problems. This translator is pretty good other than a few mistakes in certain languages. I do suggest you get it because I don’t think there are better ones out there.


I’m not a bot, if that’s what you’re thinking. This app really helps me talk to my Spanish friend at school, and it’s the only translator app that I know that has FREE offline translation. THANK YOU!!!

- Not very useful in real time/ Real life

I have to screenshot everything go to translate google translate upload pictures wait four minutes for it to scan just wanted to translate every conversation I have with somebody text message iMessage Facebook what’s appPlease upgrade this somehow so to work on other pages you say you’re associated with Facebook but you were not very helpful this app does not work very well with my iPhone XAnd yes I have the latest update my Samsung a10 S has these features where it will translate where I don’t have to screenshot and drag... I do believe no one will see this because they won’t show negative where is your views views

- Needs improvement

One of the things that does not work properly is the voice recognition feature. Work on this app more as many of its features need to be improved.

- Horrible so difficult and not accurate

Why can't learn


Fait Une mise à jour il traduit n'importe quoi il remplace des mots il traduit super mal.

- Awesome but one thing…

What are you always do the right away Scan thing is it wrong like TWC and I can’t translate it

- Very good

5/5 helped me cheat on my French quiz

- Wasted screen real estate

When I’m trying to write something for translation, the window at the top is so tiny, that it makes it difficult to see what you’ve written if it’s more than three lines. I have to scroll through a tiny little window. There’s so much space available in the window yet it’s squished at the top. Why was it done this way? Can it be changed in the settings?

- Translation to French

Il y a des erreurs de français...

- Very good

This app works so well definitely recommend and the camera setting it fantastic!! Love this app

- Superb

Amazing app really helps to translate hard words when learning a language I use it all the time

- Great tools, Bad pronunciation

It would amazing if this one had the same precise pronunciation as the new iPhone’s translate.

- This app does not know what I am writing

I was doing Arabic homework on nouns and sentences ces and when my teacher I got bad mark because I got the wrong answers from this bad app I even wrote a stupid word and did not notice because I thought I could “trust” google translate feature but nooo I now got to redo my homework and I have got extra homework with that thanks google fix your stupid app so I can do my homework with ease and google only works on the languages that are most important in the world but they should have got every language to it’s full ability and put out the app

- Ajout de description?

La traduction fonctionne assez bien mais parfois ce n’est pas exactement la bonne traduction. J’aimerais pouvoir ajouter des notes lors de l’enregistrement d’une recherche.

- Needs Cantonese voice and translation

There is no translation for Cantonese; app needs Cantonese translation and voice. Mandarin is not the only chinese language used by the masses.


Google translate was very bad i do not want to use it at all. Where writing in french to english or english to french is very bad. I would never recommend using this for school. Word reference is way better. Sometimes its wrong and sometimes its not. 90% of the time this app is wrong! this is just our opinion on this app people will have different but i do think that this app is not the best!

- Thanks!

Thanks for getting me through highshcool french!

- Needs good translation

Editing: Needs better quality on image recognition for words because some words/letters were incorrect when highlighting the sentences

- Worse app ever

This app couldn’t be more frustrating to use. Junked!

- It works well

It helps me with my French homework a lot. In the summer I tied to learn Spanish and it did help but I forgot all of it but it really good for homework in a different language!

- Behzadi

برنامه ای بسیااار عالی و کامل...

- awful app

sometime misleading

- I use it daily

Although you need the Internet connection, I use the camera, import button daily after I take a screen shot of something I need translated!

- The end.



Таке враження,що на кожне слово у гугла свій переклад,особливо в украінській мові. Фігня повна,є безліч інших в сто раз кращих альтернатив! Гугл пробив дно.

- No audio translation to Cantonese

Unbelievable! No audio translation to Cantonese. 👎👎👎👎

- Missing many languages

With the latest version of the app they removed a lot of languages. Not as useful for me anymore.

- Love quote of quality

- Don’t confuse with Apple’s App

I got confused myself, was wondering why would Google downgrade some excellent features, but it turns out that it’s the Apple Translate App, no comparison with Google translate.

- :(

Sometimes when I translate some words it makes me confused because my French teacher would say it to me because some words I don’t understand. I was translating a word I know until the translation put the word into a different meaning is the French translation French Canadian or French??? Please tell please. No wonder this app has gotten bad reviews for some people. This is app is still helpful but be careful with the app, it might make you get MIXED UP WITH SIMPLE WORDS UGH!

- Widget

Please make a widget for the app. Thanks

- Stuck on “Allow access” screen when using camera

After pressing the camera icon in the app, it shows “Allow access” in the middle of the screen. (The camera should had been allowed before as I was using that function previously.) In “Allow access” part, ...allow Siri...something, and ...allow suggest...home screen..., Why suddenly it forces me to accept Siri to learn from the app? I just need to translate some words and paragraphs, what is it to do with home screen? Updated the app and still the same.

- Not goood

- Looks good

There seems to be two translate apps on my phone, I thought the other one was this one because I don’t remember downloading the other one. Thank you for keeping the functionality and everything

- Please bring back the old voice translation system

The new voice translation offers much less than the old one did. It had your transcribed text in the original language The translation and transliteration in the requested language, and the possibility of hearing the translation spoken by a native speaker The new system is a HUGE step backwards Bring back what did not need fixing! Please!

- New version is awful

I can’t translate anything. This new version is really bad. I will probably delete the app if it doesn’t get fixed. Spanish to English just moved the Spanish around and did not show me English. The app is really difficult to use is not intuitive. Please fix this

- Translator discriminates Ukrainian (my native language)

When I translated “Part of Ukrainian-speaking population” from Ukrainian to Russian, the Russian translation said “Part of Russian-speaking population”. I was expecting it to stay “Ukrainian” because this is the initial context of the translation phrase. Due to the historical pressure of Ukrainian language (read up on Ems Ukaz), I consider it a personal offense and as a support of the repression toward Ukrainian language. Considering the scale and amount of users in Google Inc. I think google translate has to do a better job and I rate my experience at 0 stars!


I’ve noticed stuff that bad no download

- New iOS 14

The old versions were more intuitive to use. Especially translating between English and Chinese. You guys took our way too much. The pinyin in Chinese is gone. Terrible

- Why

Google when I translated it was wrong so can you please fix it

- It’s ok

I like the app but some times it says “I play soap on” when it actually says I put soap on my hands. This app need improvement but it’s ok.

- Bring back the old version

What happened to the image option? And now it’s harder to see past translations. Bring back the old version

- Ruined the app with upgrade

Since the update, translation is not happening Ruined a great app

- Not working in ios14.2

Not translator in picture for ios14.2

- Bad update

They changed the app. For worse not for better. You deleted the arrows so you could switch the language back and fwrd , deleted the 4 language frequently used. So each time you had to browse through.. and so on. Shame on you
