kkennedy555 - 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.
rsmith7 - 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!).
WJMBOLIN - 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.
Mobjack11 - 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.
Lizzie Licious - 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?
PlatinumMedallion - 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.
NYCJames - 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.
is maggie okay - 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! ♥️🤠
Scrabble Lover 44 - 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.
Hosintoy - 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.
CAD Programmer - 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.
Malinastarplayz - 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! :)
Zzalp - 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.
DjLucky256 - 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!!!!
Kiba9001 - 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.
Audio-enslaved - 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.
- 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.
- 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.
klc from w.va. - 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! 🤭
Kuma Reader - 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.
randomkid418 - 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.
Aberys - 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.
n64king - 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.
oliver_chan - 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.
wjehfhfjfbfjdhsveidg - I LOVE THIS ❤️
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.
Yowhuzup - 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.
RobOnMV - 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.
Joberkitten - 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

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.
Natsuyaki123 - 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)
BrookieCookieGirl - 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!
jazzybeat - Feedback
Overall this is a great app the only issue is with translating images. Most of the time I would use to translate screenshots from my phone, but it requires many taps:
For example in order to translate one screenshot you would need to tap 4 times: camera / import / photos / photo. Then select / highlight text. After selecting text you get a small preview in blue background. This is great for short text phrases. If you got a longer sentence you will need to tap to see full translation. If you do this then it takes you out of your image highlight tool and if you got more things to highlight and translate from the same screen then you have to do all over again tap tap tap tap tap. Sorry google translate team, this is really annoying and time consuming. Can’t you do it better?
koalaray - 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.
awfuladvertisement - 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.
dkdjdjdjffjd - 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
SandMann1966 - 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!
Singer saj - 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..
NicolasTestingIQ7 - 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!
OutlierBabe - 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:
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.
Julius557 - 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.
Why commericals - 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.
Mhamad Segvan - KURDISTAN
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.
RickeyKentucky - 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!!
haryMPB - Awesome Translation
Although other people are saying that this App is loaded with bugs? Not to me, I'm using iPhone and this apps is free download and it works awesome without a problem at all. I love this app so much based in my own experienced, this is five star. Maybe those who complain about bugs and other problems just don't have the best and safest phone. Try to use this App with iPhone. iPhone supposed to be the safest phone compare to other brand. Thank you Google translate for this App. It helps me a lot to learn and improve my Norwegian. It's the best translation App!!! It's free!!!

Greeting of peace and prosperity
to you all, we would like to extend our sincere greetings for the “Google Translate Community”.
We would like to request our language to be in your site and app., 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.
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 departments of governmental offices , the language is used in schools, directorates, and all other official places in Kurdistan Region, 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 will not have problem of inaccurate translation from other languages.
Thank you, best regards.

markn84 - Nice, I have a suggestion for improvement. Language identification
I like to buy foreign MRE’S to try, says this app helps me have an idea of what I’m going to be eating before opening it LOL. The only suggestion that I have is it would be nice to have an option to identify a language, and what I mean by that is if you’re looking at writing and you don’t know the language to select it would be nice if you could show it to Google translate and it could tell you which language you’re looking at. Something to think about guys that would be really really nice
Meerkat24 - Not where I am in China
I only gave it some stars because it gave me the confidence to leave the hotel and wander around. However, the five different people I used it with just shook their heads and smiled. I had to find other ways to communicate because they had no idea what the translation meant. (I know they wanted to be polite so I wouldn’t lose face, but we still all had a good laugh at my sign language attempts.) Maybe it’s a different dialect in Wuhan, or maybe I first need to think in Chinese syntax and then speak my English. But I need to find another app for the rest of my trip. (Here is where I may give the benefit of the doubt: Google is blocked by the government here, so maybe the people don’t want to admit having even looked at it.)
Uniquesizzle sizzle - Happy to know apple is still the best
This app is great, the best one on the market, especially for all these Chinese message that are left, spam and not to be trusted message. Numbers are spam and false message trying to trick people. This is why they leave the message in Chinese, thinking they can catch someone in their con game, and then call back the number and then they will try and get your personal information with a lie. Use the translate app by google and then block the call and report the calls number to the govt.
saleen8927 - Translates text fine, but voice translation is 0% effective
If you want to type text in, this works pretty well (although I only tried a few simple test words). The handwriting feature also seems to work well, although I’m not sure why you wouldn’t just type instead.
However, the voice and conversation features haven’t worked for even a single word yet. That was the only reason I downloaded the app. I used it with different tv shows, and maybe it’s because it’s not actual live speech, but I would think it should be able to pick up at least some of the words. I tried many shows and a few different languages, and it didn’t grab even a word correctly.
HD the BD - 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.
BTSF - Honestly cannot travel without it!
I am living in this app during business trips. Especially because I work for Octopi - a maritime startup disrupting port terminal operations. I'm head of sales and my Spanish is not up to par yet - and I travel through LatAm constantly.
In Ubers, in stores, at the airport, at foreign conferences. It's amazing what Google has built and since I've had the app for over a year, the pace of innovation and advancement I see is amazing. All the new functionality is relevant. And it seems to work almost flawlessly.
Cannot recommend it more
carlita the positive - New bug
I do like this app i have tried many others and this this one seems to be the best..........however that really isn’t saying much because it seems like all of the apps just don’t translate very good with phrases the common ones they do fine with but beyond that it just isn’t very correct (talking about Spanish to English) I know it’s probably very hard but I don’t have anyone to teach me Spanish and I’m really depending on this app (I’m sure some other people are that way too) but I encourage you guys to please work on the translation P.S there was a bug for the last update the “clear translation history” will not.....clear

cuztank - 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.
Mohamad H Jebur - 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.
Punkass chick - 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.
StormTalara - 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.
JR Mitchell - 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!
ainslieW - 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 👍
Marso75 - 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.
F1_Fan - 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.
Jalawi$$$ - 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)
Scorpion_Wins_Fatality - 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.
fiifka - 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
Hag5s - 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).
Roni185 - 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.
unmeboth - 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!
jordynicholls - 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.
Samdaman222 - 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.
Robert0609 - 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.
kas0741 - 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.
Johnschr - 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.
GridSound - 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)
Sinatra'sBlues - 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 :)
Whoooshb - 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.
Walpeg - 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.
RoshRao - 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
thekrunkymonkey - 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.
dazza6983 - 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.
#Emma35# - 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 😍❤️💙💚💛💜
RjVader1 - 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!
Critta-Inch - 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.
Donnie Zhang - Camera translation response speed is a delay and become slower than before
Camera translations speed is a delay and become slower than before
MrMarvelus - 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
BradCodling - 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 .
Herbiesfun - 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.
Sophie600000 - 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!
jonkazmi - Google translator pop view
Can you tell me plz why google translator dont pop up when copy text like andriod phones
Jessica.B.L20 - 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.
🙃美美 - Deleting
I want to delete unwanted languages but It doesn’t allow. Please fix. Otherwise I use it all the time. Thanks
JoshieJJJ - 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!
Wozz Dog - 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
JuJuPlzStop - 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.
Alex aussie - Add full sentences with translated offline please
It would be an amazing to have google translate offline sentences with translated whichever words we search.
Like Persian Dic, for Faris people. Thanks Google
fortnite headshoter - Spanish
Spanish is cool and I love the language but there’s some words that need to be fixed but google translate has helped
El_Prudo - 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.
MUSIC ROCKERZ - 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
jehehhehei - Good google translate
I like the way you do it for learning and we can get better thanks!
thesm16 - Acutely
A lot of the time is not acute .
Doesn’t have enough persian words when I need the English equivalent.
Mav1688 - Needs a rebuild.
This app does not load when starts up (white screen) and does not automatically detect the language being spoken. Not handy when I can’t figure out what language my customers are speaking.
Xie_Lou - Offline translation doesn’t work.
Using the app offline, and as it promises that you can use the app offline, you can’t. I was translating something, yet it said that I had a network error, along with that, it’s NOT 100% CORRECT. (T_T)
gavsinjit - Voice improvement

Avatar Luke - 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)

Starlight1800975463 - 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.
ball ball boc - Horrible so difficult and not accurate
Why can't learn
specq - GET THIS NOW!!!!!
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!!!
Jazzy6376 - Add Cantonese!
Overall, this app has been helpful for my Mandarin Chinese School homework and short phrases for travelling. I wish they would add Cantonese as a language though. While Cantonese text technically can be translated with traditional Chinese, the spoken language and common phases are different. It would be helpful to be able to hear Cantonese words out loud or use the conversation option. There is a large population of Cantonese speakers, and my extended family in Hong Kong would appreciate this too.
eve squad - MISE A JOUR!

Fleur0111 - 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.
Skiraga - Voice recognition is awful
The voice recognition is downright atrocious. It barely picks up any words at all and when it does, the words come out messed up and incorrect.
gamergirl8234 - Booooo google
I hate this app it is so confusing and it fuses languages together before I was able to switch between different types of Chinese but now I can’t
Bad call google
I would not recommend this app
Bak'wam - Afrikaans
You should get a real Afrikaans speaker to give voice samples. I can’t hear the correct pronunciation on some words and phrases. Sometimes the computerized voice doesn’t even make the correct pronunciations, according to my South African in laws.

To rate or not to rate - Wow!
There’s no such thing as a perfect app, not really. This app has its shortcomings but it’s got a lot going for it too!
I have sundew seed packets I ordered online, all the instructions on the back are in German (I need English). I thought I’d have to try & type it all out somehow, but you can take a picture of text & this app will translate it for you!! The translations are good, you don’t have to try and fill in any linguistic gaps or vocabulary experimenting.
It gets 4 stars (4.5, IMO but I can’t put half a star lol) as there are some hiccups. Offline features are a bit slow to work & Latin translations didn’t match up on the Google Chrome translate page (on the browse vs. On the app). I’m not traveling, I’m just using it for around the home/personal reading/personal writing, so for my purposes this app is great! I’m impressed!

They listen to their clients input and make changes accordingly. Never had a problem and it just keeps improving. I’ve no idea if a comparison cus I’ve used this always so really don’t know how other apps compare. But as they say if this works so good, why change it does all I want and more. Also I recommend “Memrise “ application to learn the languages, very nice also.
Code988 - Not like the normal Google translate
So one function that I use very often on Google Translate is that middle button that switches the two languages. On the Google Translate app it doesn't copy the text over and translate it back to the original language. Instead, it leaves the original writing that I put in and tries to translate my original writing back into the language it already is in. If I wanted to use the online translator function, I would have to copy it and then paste it into the translate side and that is really tedious on mobile. Please fix.
Khfhgjg589 - Useless for Japanese
Many common words are completely mistranslated. Multiple possible translations (Japanese has many homonyms - words that sound same but different meanings) are usually completely ignored. I realize Japanese can have nuances that are difficult to convert to English, but I’m just talking basic one-word translations. Google seems to mess up very frequently. I’d be very wary of relying on Google Translate for situations where misunderstandings could be a problem. I see if I type in romaji I get a completely different translation than if I use the handwriting input, even though Google succeeds in correctly representing the input to hiragana. This is an obvious problem, and I can only believe lack of attention is the cause of this discrepancy.
CHsnowwhite - PLEASE add gender cases to the nouns across all of the languages
PLEASE add gender cases to the nouns! In languages other than English this is extremely important and affects agreement with adjectives and their spelling. I love this app and this would be a simple yet crucial enhancement. Been using the app for years BUT when I need to know the gender I must anyway and subsequently go online and search outside Google. Thanks for integrating this!
Example: in French is NUAGE masculine or feminine. You app simply tells you it means CLOUD in English yet this is limited info as you must know if it’s masculine or feminine. Ah yes, many languages beyond English are not gender neutral.
vici2018 - Wonderful app
This app has helped me find words I haven’t used in a long time, just didn’t think of them anymore lol. Then… it translates everything perfectly for me every time so far! I have to admit I didn’t use the speaker feature yet and after reading some of the other reviews, I will certainly need to give it a try. Might make things a little more interesting and fun, plus I’m eager to find out now how it does.
Anyway… I love the app and it’s great that it was free, not much is anymore!!! :))
Dang Hazelnut - Buggy
There are a couple of bugs using the Google Translate. The first bug is that whilst using the translate back and forth between other apps, the autocorrection no longer works. I would always have to quit Google Translate in the background, then reopen for it to work properly again. Another bug is the emoji. The emojis are not properly displayed whilst translating or they simply don't appear at all. I also have a couple of suggestions. First suggestion is to allow us entering line breaks. Another suggestion is to allow us adjust the text size. Please consider all of these bugs and features. Thank you!
charlieputhfan100 - One Language Request
I really like this app. Sometimes I put in funny things for fun, and sometimes I use it to study Spanish, which I’m taking in school right now. However, I have one request. My grandparents speak Farsi, which is the same as Persian, and I can’t speak it that well. Farsi is already on the app, but it doesn’t have that button I can click to listen to it. I think you should make an audio for Farsi and some other languages that don’t have it. Other than that, this app is 👌👌👌
furjdjsje - I use it everywhere I go
Whenever I go to a foreign place like China or Japan I bring my google translator with me so I can understand their language. I was at a Chinese restaurant and the waiter asked me a question in Japanese so I translated what she was saying and showed my screen to her. She nodded and went to get my bill for me. I also love how if you see a sign in a different language you can take a picture of it thru the app and it’ll automatically translate it for you. Excellent and useful!
Phantzm - Love the app, but noticed something ...
I love this app and use it a lot, but I noticed that sometimes the text you are trying to translate does not clear when it is supposed to. Closing the app and re-opening it fixes this issue, but that should not be necessary.
I am using an iPhone 11 Pro Max and the latest version of iOs and the app. I do not know if this is a common or rare problem, but it happens to me quite frequently.
Other than that issue it is a great help to me.
SacaraxD - Amazing, Cut camera function needs improvement.
It is the only translator app that I use and it is wonderful and enough for my needs as I travel to different countries.
The new camera function is wonderful and now saves me lots of time.
The only sad part about it is that SOMETIMES IT HAS PROBLEMS FOCUSING. At first I thought it was me that was unable to use it well, but as it happens to me often now I see is just the app.
I don’t complain, but I know Google can do better with it. 👍🏼
Blind_sinoji - Used to work better
Having problems with certain functions with this app especially after updating IOS to 12 when it became available. Clear Text doesn't work most of the time for me, I am using Voice Over because I'm blind, and 'm noticing that the translations, especially in Japanese are not even close to being natural sounding. Luckily I know enough Japanese to tell the difference but it's pretty embarrassing when you copy the translation when chatting with a native Japanese speaker and they ask why you said a certain sentence like that. Overall, it's a great tool but I have found myself using MS Translator way more these days.
Parismtn - What’s the Hurry??!
I sometimes wonder if these software designers talk to anyone outside their cubicles. While it translates well, it’s lacking at least one very important feature - an adjustment, and a way to disable completely, the timeout period.
In conversation mode, If you stop talking for 2-3 seconds, say to take a breath, or momentarily search for the right words, the darn thing decides on its own that you’re done speaking, and it immediately recites (in the translated language,) what you’ve said so far.
That’s fine if you’ve completed a sentence, but if not, it leads to improper translations, since quite often there isn’t enough context to perform an accurate translation.
This is a particular problem for the elderly, like my 86 year old mother-in-law, who pauses for more then 2 seconds when she’s speaking.
There should be a way to increase or completely disable the timeout, with perhaps an “I’m Done” button (in the appropriate language of course.)
......mary.ng - Just why
You are such a big company and you can't even improve your voice translator?! Why even have that if you can't even spend your time n money on that. Like why not? You mastered everything else kinda in the translator why not improve your voice translator. If u don't believe me than try it yourself. Go out there in use any language other than English and get that thing to translate a Spanish speaker's word n get it to put what they said into words. I love google n I thank you for all you've done for me but just haven't u improve that thing yet it's been over a year now. Come on now google! I'm sorry but I'm giving u a 1 star for not being updated to the needs of ppl in everyday life.
Teensoldier3 - Better than the Browser Version!
This app is great. You can investigate words that mean the same as you googled. For example if you googled what storms are called in Finnish, it would give you several words that could mean Storm, with the strongest translation the one that they provide at the top. I haven’t experienced any bugs so far and have downloaded a few languages to my device for offline use. I would recommend this for an ad-free offline-use translator.
T Bone 70 - One of the handiest apps to have
Though I might not agree with Google’s politics, I believe they deserve a round of applause. Not only can you translate anything in seconds, and not only can you download entire lexicons onto your device, but you can take text from nearly any image and translate it immediately. The translator itself may not be perfect, but the technology of this utterly wows me (which is not easy to do to a 15-year old)
Hats off to you, Google!
Marinjoe - Improved greatly over time
We travel to Germany each year to spend our summers there and I use this translation tool with all my German friends (who speak near perfect English) just to show ai try. Their responses in the early days of google translate was to laugh at the terrible conversion of English to German. But now I get very different responses from them and no more laughing at my German.
The new features of having the camera function translate the German word into English is useful but still has a way to go. Great in grocery stores and such.
Molanda Zu - Useful Translation Tool
It would be helpful if Google Translate was a sharing action for photos.
I often have to translate apps and the process involves taking a screenshot, opening Google Translate, navigating to the camera tab, navigating to the import, finding the picture in my photo collection, translating what I need, opening Photos, then deleting the picture. Too many steps!
With a sharing action, I could open Google Translate directly from the screenshot, similar to what is available for Google Maps and Gmail.
h2oClay - Free version is frustrating
I’ve had this app for a number of years. The older version I had was much more free user friendly. This version constantly asks me to rate or upgrade to the paid version while trying to translate. If you are trying to have an active conversation with a foreign person, constantly having to click off of the “upgrade” tab is obnoxious. Not to mention it also deletes my talk to text after every voice translation when the “upgrade” option pops up. This app, although it has many pop ups, is still better than iTranslate free version in my opinion though...p
Right Proper Alias - They killed OCR functionality
This app used to allow same-language input and output. For example, you could choose Korean as input and Korean as output, which would instantly deliver a copy of anything scanned in the original language that you could paste somewhere else (flash card, email etc). This meant you could use the program as an optical character reader, even for languages very difficult for non natives/language learners to transcribe like Chinese, Japanese, Korean etc, now you are forced to choose two separate languages. If they do not restore OCR function to this program, I hope they at least make another OCR dedicate OCR app.
RoseNichole - Add a edit suggestion option in the app
If google translate add the translation improvement part here inside the app and I can add through my app, that would be so wonderful.
Also, in Persian translation some of the translations are not correct and there is mo way inside the app to suggest an edit or let you know that there is a problem here.
If you add edit suggestion here, that would work much better and encourage more people to participate in this improvement way.
Cause just a small amount of people go to google and search for improvement. But here we can participate like what we are doing in google map and the edition can be asked and get confirmation by many users and get point as a correct translation and then add to the google translate.
I hope someone in your team read this review and it’s not just a Nothing Important for your app! 😉
matching girl 101 - Amazing and very useful!!!
I downloaded this app when I visited Spain so I could understand what they were saying. It totally worked and I understood almost every word that everyone was saying!! Almost everyone will be able to find their language. I use it a lot because I want to learn more languages. I love it!! I love that you have so many options like, microphone, type, write etc. I live this app and 100% percent recommend it!!
AngieNenetl - NEEDS WORK
A lot of the translations are different from Mexican spoken Spanish.I used to use this solely until I was completely misunderstood 90% of the time! So embarrassing! An example is “NINGUNA” it’s listed as a translation for NONE & also ANY. Those words are basically opposites! The only reason I use it is bc it’s convenient. I end up having to relook words up using google search for more reliable translations available online without apps. :( If you decide to learn the translations from this app, you will be learning a fake/made-up language created by Google. The only people who will understand you will be the people who used this app. It’s a fad that won’t last, btw.
Lithtnrnjwmq nww - Good Enough? Not Even Close!
A lot of people think Google Translate translates correctly. But no, it doesn’t. It will translate some things correct though, unlike all the other things I’ve tried translating. When I sometimes speak a different language to a friend or something, they sometimes don’t even understand. That’s why I rated it 1 star. It does help a little though (but not to much; which just frustrates me). So if your learning a new language, you might want a friend to be there to teach you some.
Also, if you have a favorite song that you like to listen to, but it’s in a different language (such as Merengue or K-POP), you might as well want to translate it. That is where a friend might come in handy.
I’m not really as mad as I thought I would be (for some reason), but you need some major updates on this specific app. Including some other fixes t9 stop freezing, and when they can’t delete it (coming from other people’s complaints). Thank you!
Warurmonk - Creative results for Chinese to English and limited ability to selectively delete
I use the app primarily to get a vague idea of the meaning of the content of emails I receive in Chinese before the sender provides an English translation some time later. The results often reach the level of bizarre so they cannot be considered reliable as a translation from Mandarin to English.
I find it very frustrating that I am unable to delete a particular translation without clearing the history. IMHO it should be a simple process. It may well be that I am too much of a Luddite.
Thich an - Good translation on some language but has a lot of mistakes
I like this translate app but it has a lot of mistake on some of the language, like Japanese they get 60% of them wrong and 40% right, or Vietnamese sometimes it gets it right like 80% of it, that’s ok it doesn’t have to be 100% right, but sometimes the translation gets really bad. Like it just says the opposite thing of what I’m asking of sometimes, I just think it needs a little more fix for the translation, but over all it is a pretty good translator.
no gaps - Baaaaaaad transliteration
As the title it says Google translate but I checked doesn’t translate as good as I thought it would be at first that I would trust Google but it doesn’t really work as well as you search it ,online it works a little better. So please fix it it’s not translating the language I want it to and it doesn’t even make sense like the book I’m trying to translate is funny but it doesn’t work ,as well I can’t read the language that’s why I use this app but overall it’s goog enough.
mach2don - I realy love this app however....
when you type what you want to werite in another language and tap/hold on it to copy and paste it just szys translation copied but it doesnt tell you whers??? so where in hell do you go to find your translation and how do you take to your email or other location to paste it. because this isnt explained nor written anywhers i grde it 4 stars what a shame cause its a good app. typical stereo beliefe that everyone is a data dink born of the computer age and already knows the simple fundamentals....WELL WERE NOT GD!!!
CeJayBe - Latest update terrible!
It took away camera input for Hebrew! I live in Israel and I can get by in Hebrew but by reading is slow and inaccurate. Therefore, I use my iPhone camera to take pictures of mail I receive, screenshots of pages on Hebrew apps on my phone that I don’t quite understand, and import those pictures into Google Translate. At least I did until yesterday when it inexplicably became unavailable!
Google translate is not just for tourists and conversations; it is for getting by in a country that speaks and writes in a different language! I don’t care if it’s perfect. It still gets the job done.
Google - what were you thinking? Bring it back.
Wonderful G. - Best and Fastest translator
After trying other translations apps, I can only to say that Google translate is the one that I found to be satisfactory. I often use this app to help me in my Mandarin class with pronunciations and understanding vocabulary! The only major problem is that the recent updates changed the voice for the Chinese translations. Now I can’t even differentiate the pronunciation of each character because it sounds too blurred and mechanical. Please bring the old voice back.
jamal ali ethar 2007 - Google translate
Google translate is the best thing I ever saw because it helps every single person for anything they need help with for example if you are a new to a school in America you can just download Google translate and you can translate a word that you don’t know in English trust me you can hope all your real friends or your kids it is the best translator I ever saw in my whole entire world that’s why he deserves five stars🤩🤩
ShaiTrak - Camera feature not as good as previously
The camera option to translate saved pics or documents doesn’t work as good as it did before. Before you could zoom into a pic. Highlight certain text while searching the pic. And if the pic didn’t translate well or didn’t pick up any foreign language, it would give you an option of instant translation while scanning. Which also helped. Now it doesn’t allow you to do that. Please bring back that feature! Thanks! *Using it for mostly East Asian languages.
⚡️⚡️⚡️Energizer Erica!⚡️⚡️⚡️ - I love this app! 😍 But...
I love this app! I've used it so frequently that, in fact, I could not star another translation. Please don't limit the number of translations that I could star. I usually don't review apps, but I felt compelled to write this, so you could update it soon to remove that specific restriction. The translations that the app gives is not always correct, but then I have many language resources if I need a better-nuanced translation. Thank you very much, Google Translate Team! Love you lots! 💝
Bri9909 - The recent last couple updates are horrible
I use this app every single day all day for Spanish and since they redid the Camera portion now you can’t copy the photo that was translated from English to Spanish which I used the photo app to translate photos from the Internet and now you cannot even be able to screenshot the English to Spanish this is horrible I’m deleting it You guys need to put that function back up because it is such a hassle to not be able to translate the photo from English to Spanish and then have a copy of the Spanish translated photo rather than put your finger over the word without the photo being translated
So？ho - Please add Cantonese language in google translate.
Please add Cantonese voice to speech (TTS) and Cantonese language (粵語、jyut6 jyu5）translation as soon as possible. Thank you!
中文（Chinese, zung1 man4）
粵語（Cantonese, jyut6 jyu5）
正體字（traditional Chinese, zing3 tai2 zi6）
北方話（Mandarin, bak1 fong1 waa2）
拼音（phonetic spelling, ping3 jam1）
And also, one of the functions make people uncomfortable. Please see the situation: i'm using Google translate voice input for translating between English and Cantonese, when I speak Cantonese than Google translate will give me and English translation and speak out loud, and that is okay. However, if I speak English, then Google will give me a Chinese result and speak out loud in Mandarin. That doesn't make any sense, and makes me feel I was not being respected. So please fix it as soon as possible.
Here are two solutions: the first one, turn off the automatic speak function; or the second one, when people have selected traditional Chinese as their translated language, system will automatically speaks in Cantonese for the translation.
Hollister7387479 - Needed Help With Homework. This Got the Job Done
This app is amazing. My mandarin teacher assigned us a crazy hard packet where we had to translate a bunch of characters we didn’t know into english. I was having an extremely difficult time so I downloaded this app in hopes of getting it done. I used the drawing feature for the app and it works amazingly! From what i could translate myself, the translation is very good. Strongly recommend.
CookingKitten79 - Great and tasty but missing some ingredients
The app is amazing but they should add more languages like Cantonese I know six Japanese Spanish English Vietnamese mandarin Cantonese but I can’t seem to find Cantonese anywhere if you could add a sprinkle of more languages it would be five stars but some translations are wrong maybe you guys could add a squeeze of right translations you could get five stars and your missing a juicy taste to make it easy to use it would be a full translation soup (sorry I had to think about food lol)
Sharyl-Dune - EVERYONE NEEDS THIS APP
My family is multi-cultural and in any one chat there are English, Spanish and Russian being conversed at one time. I can easily switch back and forth. It’s extremely accurate and easy to use. An otherwise very different family is now able to communicate love, life and similarities in the language we best express ourselves in.
I recommend this to EVERYONE and EVERY AGE. This app even has a conversation feature.
Just another iSheep - Internet Connection Mostly Required
This app is just about useless without a data or WiFi connection. Translating typed text from one language to another works offline. Every single other feature of this app requires a connection. Unless you’re purchasing a SIM card for travel or a WiFi hotspot, this app will do pretty much nothing for you, unless you’re ready to type out every single word you need translated on your trip.
Hapausmc - Good but...
Great tool which I used quite a bit in Japan this past month. A really big glitch to me is not being able to use the camera for instant “live” translations. It keeps telling me to exit split screen. I cannot find anyway to do so!! So I take a picture then use the photo for translations which by the way can be confusing at times. Translating from signs(road/parks/warning, etc) are basically helpful but can misinterpreted out of context. The offline translation is a good idea. BUT fix the split screen glitch!!!
lolgirl@22900078 - Um... Yes.
Now, I have been using Google Translate on the actual Google website for what seems like forever, since I’m gradually learning German. But I then discovered the Google Translate App, and I am just... amazed, honestly. There are soooo many options that are incredibly useful, and if you don’t have to optimize the app, it does it for you. I don’t have anything you could improve. Fantastic, or as the Germans would say, fantastische!
iraqiforever - Google translate
This program GOOGLE TRANSLATE it’s helps me a lot in my live as an English second language, thank you google, thanks to everyone who works behind the scenes, If you reading my review please put in your consecration that if you could make a category language slide options, like - medical translate, engineering translate , and some important specialty, also if you can put some translation for the American slang phrases,
Alpha&0mega - Key to world peace and understanding
Thank you google for developing such a powerful free app. I think most world conflicts and misunderstanding is caused by ineffective communication. This app is the key to help the people of earth understand each other. If it weren’t for this app I would have such a hard time communicating with my grandparents. I know Cantonese is spoken less than mandarin, it would be great if the app could translate to and from Cantonese. Thanks
caj-1902 - For a free app works wonderful, but only when connected to the internet
Downloaded this because it offered offline translation. Works amazing when you are connected to a network. But you get what you pay for when you pay nothing, LOL. I’m not sure what it is translating to when it has no network connection- translations are way off and different than when connected to the internet. I wouldn’t need an app if I wasn’t using offline, I’d simply just use the one google puts in their browser. 😊
PESGamepro - Conversation and voice translation
The app is really good and in the free category it beats all the other apps available. The one thing that I find needs improvement though is the fact that to operate the “conversation” and “voice” translations you need an internet connection. If you could make it so that when you download a language offline you can operate the voice and conversation translations, I would happily give it 5 stars!
gaylordnope - Almost there
This app is great for anything from translating a text message to translating song lyrics but the only issue is that not all languages can be downloads for offline use and a good feature would be to hold the camera over a different language and show you which language it is and last is to make you be able to translate any language into one language if you’re not sure which one it is
Adventures of Jake - Ok but needs improvement
For frequent users, you may find this app irritating as it is not the most user friendly. The keyboard does not pop up automatically, which makes one more step in the way of typing something quickly. Secondly, the controls are a little ungainly, they’re easy to ‘fat-finger’ and hard to hit accurately on larger phone screens.
As for the pros, the translations seems decent, especially in Spanish where there are many different slangs and regional words.
Tim Brook - Google apps drain battery
I installed google apps many times and realized they drain your battery. Whenever I install google apps I feel my battery stops staying longer. Their analytics this that must be draining it. So now using only web versions of apps. Facebook Google all these apps drain your battery and then their CEOs talk about climate control but how much lithium and dead phones they are throwing in environment is just opposite to that. Their servers in Antarctica killing ice and battery recharge cycles killing environment. But just for speaking good talks is all about in reality all these apps making you anxiety restless when they drain battery like hell.
benjaminchodroff - Issue with clearing input text
Clicking the “x” on the current translation does not clear all the input text. This used to work. Now, you have to manually backspace all the input text to delete it. Please fix so clicking the “x” clears all the current input and output translation. New Feature request: It would be great to have a mode that never remembers past unsaved translations. Some translations can be very sensitive or awkward if seen by others when using the app and forgetting to delete each one.
Kyle Mathis. - Use a different translator
I am an aspiring interpreter/translator who has been studying Spanish for a little over a year now and have picked up the language very easily. I have to give this app a bad rating because it’s just that bad!
Unfortunately this app uses the wrong conjugations, the wrong definite and indefinite articles, and it certainly doesn’t help anybody understand each other in a grammatical context.
If you want to breach a language barrier between two or more individuals and ultimately communicate, this should not be the app to do that for anybody. I have used this app far too many times and it has let me down.
I’m sorry but as somebody who has studied a flagship language for some time now and is doing well, this app is just not engineered correctly. I cannot support this translator and will only use it for purposes that I have to.
Maybe if you hire language experts or engineer the app differently I will be more confident in the algorithm.
Thanks for your time.
Peeved Polyglot - Creates Embarrassing Situations- Not Worth It
Google Translate for Japanese and Hindi is inaccurate. In Japanese, the translations are so bad that native people are confused. In Hindi, the translations are downright obscene or complete gibberish.
In a situation with an elder of our area, his speech was translated as ‘I’m the only one who loves you.’ Of course he didn’t say that in front of his wife and my children. He is not that kind of person. The app messed up on translation. In building relationships with locals, I often tell them that my phone says ridiculous things.
When attempting to translate ingredients on packaging, the translations are nuts- yesterday I translated a yogurt carton and it said it had 13 lightning in it. This is using the offline translation, which I had updated that day.
While I am learning Japanese, I need an app I can rely on for accurate translations. I cannot rely on Google Translate. I would advise you to find something better.

@cath_the_soso I wonder what went through her mind before asking. “Who the fuck is this guy?” “What’s a Hamlet? It sounds tasty.” “Why is it so weirdly written? Oh, must’ve been Google Translate! Hmmm... what language was it translated from?”
@angu2605 @SimmerZozo “This Google translate thing is so useful. I hope it is accurate!”
I don’t think so😁
Now try to answer me in Dutch he he?
@angu2605 No I just found out this Google translate keyboard feature and used it 😂
Enemy of the State Deplorable
@TimRunsHisMouth I NEED GOOGLE TRANSLATE OVER HERE!!
@luciferzeii ohhh okay... I'm sorry, I guess google translate didn't work very well😅💗
@Jae for JKAY DEBUT💚💙
@jaeminjaems_ Doesnt google translate
surprisingly didn't have that many corrections HEHE THANKS GOOGLE TRANSLATE
Grabe kayo mag misinterpret mas malala pa sa Google translate. Take everything you see on social media at face value. Things will be edited to fit the public context but a lot is also going on behind the scenes. People are so quick to hate without knowing the full story.
@reilly1041 @pamjwilson @merryfwilliams It also works really well to pair GV with Google Translate for my parents who don't speak English. I actually had some productive conversations this past spring using this method.
@HKigwangalla Google translate makes a right mess of your tweet. It’s all about big cats!!
@Kanta_Mizuno @ConceptualJames I let google translate it says "I am all for rights, as long as I don't perceive that I am being slighted! I have thin skin and can't possibly empathize that someone's experiences are completely different than mine!"
Sometimes you say something true and get attacked. toughen up!
WHY GOOGLE TRANSLATE?
WHY DO YOU ALWAYS MAKE IT KYOKO TONO?
ITS TOSHINO KYOKO!!!
#ShakeTheLily via @YuruYuriGT
I just think Galaco is neat💖
@HauntedSoda Google translate knows my brain works on it's own language .. Engli§h
Otherwise a perfect show, #TheBoysTV frustrates me as much as Kimiko wishes she had Google translate.
when the autopsy report wasn’t outdated
@Suzami6 Thank you google translate very cool
