    A couple of months ago I had a friend from France visiting New York who doesn’t speak English (we talk in French). Since I couldn’t be with her all the time, I suggested her this app to help her translate signs, menus, etc.

    If you are traveling to Mexico for the first time, being able to ask for directions and get a basic understanding of the language is helpful. iTranslate can help you learn some simple Spanish and you can access a dictionary and learn as many Spanish words as you want. Now you can learn 10 to 15 helpful phrases that can make your time in Mexico much more fun and immersive.

    When you’re adopting a child from another country and you know that you have an 8 hour or more plane trip ahead of you, it’s a good idea to have a good translator on hand to help with the language barrier.

    Traveling to a place where the locals speak a different language than yours? Knowing 5 or 6 often-used locals words can surely make things easier when buying, asking for directions, or simply just having a casual conversation. iTranslate is the app for that.

    When you are heading to another country, one thing you don't want to worry about is the language barrier. That's why having a good translator app is so important. This app translates over 100 languages, including Spanish.

    Allergies can pose a particularly big problem when traveling halfway across the globe. Not speaking the language can put your health at risk. This accurate translator will help you explain your situation to any waiter or flight attendant in less than 20 seconds.

    Automatic online translators have a bad rep - for a reason. Still, some can be surprisingly useful. iTranslate can serve as an excellent dictionary covering no less than 100 different idioms. This massive lexicon is updated on an almost daily basis.

    1. The end-all-be-all translator that is easy to use and translates over 100 languages
    2. Find what you are looking for with a dictionary and thesaurus - all in one - for a variety of languages
    3. Switch between dialects and directions of communication translations. All in just one simple step

  • So easy to use! Dec 17, 2018

    By rolling_adventures
    I love iTranslate and use it frequently! My sister-in-law is Italian and I am American. She speaks and writes in English without issue, but most of her family and friends back home don't speak or write in English or feel more comfortable in Italian. iTranslate helps me understand Facebook comments about my sister-in-law or niece that I would otherwise be unable to read/translate (my Italian isn't that advanced). It also allows me to look at foreign websites and translate from the source language into English. My parents enjoy international travel and like to stay in small bed and breakfast type places instead of large multi-national hotel chains. Often these small B&B's website doesn't have an English version, so iTranslate comes to the rescue! I usually know what language I am translating from, but from time to time I will want to translate a tweet or FB comment that is written in a language I don't recognize. When that happens, it definitely comes in handy that iTranslate has the "Detect Language" function and can automatically translate it to English or another language of your choosing. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND using iTranslate!

    I actually LOVE the app, and the pro version. However, I had to reset my phone, and now the app will not install. I AM having no issues downloading and installing any other apps, but have been unsuccessful with iTranslate for several days now. It's frustrating because the app has been an invaluable tool for me as I Self-teach multiple languages.

  • I half accidentally paid for this app Apr 11, 2021

    By kat8478493
    Truly I wanted to forget to cancel it because I I really want to learn Spanish and other languages. Omg. Just now I’ve finally let go of the guilt of spending the money, plus so much has been happening lately, stopping to learn anything new has been a luxury. So I just now checked out the features of this app. Omg. Lol. It’s pretty much amazing. I just found one feature where I can speak to my phone in English, and then press play it will translate to whomever in idk, 30 languages? Not sure how many the speaking feature covers. Taking pictures of objects, besides it being useful to learn new languages is honestly just really fun, to see how well it can guess what’s in the picture from the limited area of space you’ve given it. Now that I’ve reallly looked, I’m thinking I might pay for it again when the year runs out. I have not checked with native Spanish speakers or anyone else to verify the translations are perfectly accurate. I will do that. But so far this thing is amazing. I’ve been sitting here at the gas station not getting gas for an hour playing with it.

    I do not understand all of the negative reviews. Translating any language perfectly requires near mastery of the language so take the time to learn whichever one or more languages you choose. In the meantime I challenge you to find a better app than this one. I have used it throughout Europe and it has been invaluable well beyond the $40 I spent to upgrade to the pro version. Translating restaurant menus was worth that price alone. The app continues to evolve and improve. Tens of thousands of people are using the app. I don't find the responses to complaints caustic but merely informative. Don't let the negative reviews prevent a purchase that can be very valuable. And if you want to use a free trial it may make sense to have a need for the program during that time period to fully test it. And no I do not work for the company, only a happy customer that is realistic and understands limitations of any language program. I think translating "get a life" from English to any language might miss the intended meaning.
  • Very Good App. Mar 11, 2021

    By RJ2544
    I’ve used this app quite a lot now, maybe a little expensive, but it’s worth the price to me. I just pay monthly so I can stop when I don’t need it. I translate French which I’m learning (very slowly) and Filipino called Tagalog which only translates in written form not speaking sounds. I give it 5 stars ‘cause it’s worth it to me. Maybe it’s not perfect, but it’s one heck of a lot better than nothing. I’m not sure, but I would say it’s probably the best translator available. I’ve used a couple of others a long time ago and they were not near this good. Most people who give this one a low star rating are probably low star themselves! I talked to a woman over 20 years ago that was working on this very thing, well, machine translation at the University of Illinois. I think it’s very difficult so many variables.
  • It will help you get by... Feb 5, 2020

    By Alupinya
    Please note, I’m asking a lot from it. American living in Germany and using it in/for a German language course. My wife is German and also a English and German teacher. It’s been pointed out on more than one occasion “that doesn’t mean (xyz) at all...” when using or quoting this app. If you’re using it just to get around for a vacation, sure. Plus (at least in Germany) they’re very polite and (almost) everyone speaks English so they won’t point out this app has missed the mark. If you just want to find a the bathroom or get food and a beer, I’ve used a free app that is a lot better for communicating. (if this is now free absolutely download it, but if not...). Remember I need to know “Wie spät ist es?”- is not - “what time is it” (the app translation) but what it truly says which is “How late is it?” so... For when you’re listening to someone speak or building sentences on your own later you’ll think wie means “what” and spät means time (what/was - time/zeit). It’s not always wrong, but it’s not always 100% right for everyday/conversational usage. If you do download, remember wie may not be what.

    Wow. I have yet to try all of the features. It isn’t that the features are not beneficial... I am currently working to increase screen time (yes, increase). I didn’t like translation apps because of the undesired results. I guess this would be something I’ll just state vaguely because I’d rather be doing something else but I encourage anyone interested in translation apps to try this one and buy the pro in-app version. That will make all of the apps in the bundle available with pro features. The user interface is simple, elegant and easy to use. The experience started out being very satisfied and continues to fuel the thirst for knowledge and provide the perfect amount of pleasure to be very ally with the product and want even more. I just found more so I’m going back in to nerdify my life. More is more.
  • Excellent App Apr 24, 2021

    By Climbergirl2002
    We used this app all over southwestern France which is way more rural and has fewer people that speak English! we were able to travel on our own without a tour service or a tour guide. we didn’t have too many barriers language wise. The few times we had an issue was pronunciation. Those times we were in a situation where we could not play the audible of what one of us was trying to say. For that $20 per year charge for verbal translation and being able to take a photo of something to translate, it can’t be beat! Because we cannot always play the sound, it would really be nice if there was a phonetic pronunciation included. I grew up speaking Spanish and tended to lapse into a Spanish pronunciation to an unfamiliar French word when I could not hear it or see how to pronounce it!

    Began downloading to buy PRO until skimming through reviews, then quickly uninstalled before even setting up. Too many people appear to have premature charges & some accidental charges from their kids etc but they all had 1 major breaking denominator which was the developers same cold repetitive response that they all accepted the terms and conditions because we all endless time to read the 20 pages of legalities & TOS every single time we sign up or purchase anything.
  • Scam, forces you into a subscription Nov 27, 2020

    By [N7]NobodyCats
    If you don’t believe me download it, you can’t use anything but the bare minimum of translating by typing it in manually, If you want to use a translator app just use google translate app completely free and has a camera translator function, you have to pay actual money to even use the camera function on this app, heck you can’t do anything but the bare minimum with this the rest of the stuff they force you to do a monthly subscription or do the free trial, that also forces you into a subscription. When you try to use anything but the minimum it brings up a window telling you to pay a 5.99 monthly fee, or do the 7 day free trial with a subscription. It’ll forcefully subscribe you if you do the free trial. But regardless paying for this is pointless when google translate app is completely free and has the camera function. This is just a scam to get as much money as possible which is why they have a subscription system so they can keep taking in money instead of a one time purchase. Basically unless you like spending or losing money for an app you likely won’t use more than 1-2x a month don’t get it. Besides with how accessible the internet and what not is, why would you bother paying for something like this that is literally free everywhere. Anything that has access to the web can be used to get to a translator website. Now try imagine paying $50-$75 a month or year for this?

    Forces you to subscribe at the ridiculously high price of $39.99 per year if you dont cancel within a week. The annoying part is there is NO LINK to cancel. Even the button to email support does nothing. Not only that, but the app does nothing more than google translate (free) and doesnt have the language I need to translate (Mayan) anyways. Useless and scammy. BEWARE!

    It has potential, really, but them scamming people AND being snarky with there automatic responses, is enough for me not to support them. I was considering trying out the trial, because that's what a trial is for, to try out things. Based off all the other reviews, they would proceed to not let me cancel it, steal my money, and then blame it on Google. Google made playstore, not your app. Refuse to show support to unprofessional babies, who can't even scam people sneakily. So eat this one star.
  • LOVED this app initially & would have paid for it, BUT... May 30, 2018

    By GoodStuffHappens
    Initially this app would have gotten 5 stars. It beat google translate and a tu ally did a decent job translating English to German & vise versa; especially for a free app. But of late the app consistently crashes immediately after is finishes the cycle of translation; and before I have time to even verify it’s accuracy so not sure if it’s still as correct as it used to be I read in a some reviews that it isn’t anymore; i.e. Korean for example, but I wouldn’t know since it keeps crashing. Wrote to Support and will see what happens. Also asked me to upgrade which I strongly considered but not with some of the small print in permissions. Beware that it requires access to any past translations as well & beware that anything you type it paste into it to translate will be accessed by this app; so you might wish to leave out financial or sensitive Information, etc.; like if you’re translating a contract. Also, the premium (paid) version price tag seems rather steep to a lot of the reviewers here as well as to me the way it is organized now. I’d say it’s a bit of “carrot” app; “Lookie what I got here! Okay now come and get it!” ...Once you start chasing it, it eludes you. ... If they make improvements and adjustments, I’ll alter my review, but for I’ll say, sadly, I’d pass!

    Too many steps to get a translation, doesn't translate accurately, and doesn't auto detect the source language. Should probably improve the app before charging for it. Dear developers, I did give specifics. The app does not auto detect the source language, does not accurately translate into the target language, and requires too many steps to get a translation, i.e I have to search through the long list of languages to find the source, then the target language to get an incorrect translation.

    I've never actually used this app so I cannot give a tasting but. I cancelled my free trial days before it was up how did it get reinstated by it's self? I was just charged 39.99 for a app I've never actually used and cancelled on early? I chose the same option both times cost related issues so I do not have the financial capabilities right now to be paying for $40 apps during covid-19 I have to rely on the government's unemployment that doesn't even pay 1/3 of all my bills. Will give 5 stars
  • I can’t even 🤦🏾‍♀️🤯 Dec 30, 2017

    By Katybaggs
    Ok, look /listen...When I first got this app I thought it would be amazing and such a big help, and the possibility using it on my Apple Watch was a bonus; I was really looking forward to paying for it after my trial, buuut then I started getting wrong translations all over the place. I want to know who is providing the translations for these words...cause this is nonsense. I’m learning Korean and it kind of defeats the purpose of having a translator app, that provides the WRONG translations a lot of the time; I stopped using google translate for that same reason. I get tired of having to look up the word online just to get the correct meaning, it’s frustrating. When I look up words in the translator I am not typing in American letters, I am typing in 한글 (Hangul), just to make sure that I get the correct translation. I have even provided the corrected translations for some of the words I have looked up through the app, and surprise, surprise they are STILL wrong and haven’t been corrected; why have “wrong?” A feature in the app if you are not going to take advantage of it, and correct what is effectively wrong...SMH. Either way my money will stay in my pocket when it comes to even thinking about purchasing this app 🙅🏾‍♀️. Move on there’s nothing to see here.

    I have requested a refund of the subscription on the SAME DAY i was charged (well within the guidelines) and this request has been denied. I have been charged an unwanted $42 after usining the free trial of a service that DIDNT WORK in the first place. I am currently attemting to do everything i can to recieve my money back. But this is rediculous. Ive been charged for a YEARLY subscripiton aswell. The developer hasnot included any smaller forms of transaction such as a $10 monthly option.

    The app is of great value and allows for practice for those who put in the time reading, saying, and listening. I like having access to the phrasebook necessity of languages. Traveling, class, and communicating personably or professional with this app is a plus. In writing this it was now time to pay monthly again, not having realizing 30 days had past. I had not used the app yet, but tested to see if it updated. The price it worth it depending upon usage. I did think 4.99 per month was pricey. Again usage determines the price. For me, based upon my usage I may subscribe periodically throughout the year, realizing the initial update fee was not for the entirety or year. The app is a “diamond in the rough”, when you are somewhere needing to access the necessities within the ventures of travel.

  • pretty solid translator...but could use some tweaking Feb 21, 2019

    By reganhk
    The app is pretty good. I haven’t seen any bugs or significant negative points. The interface is neat and easy to navigate. There’s no ads at the bottom of the screen but the pop-up ads could be less. Instead of pop-up ads, place the ads on the Phrasebook tab as an “Additional features” kinda promo section. It can still be seen but it’s not an interference that’s shoved into your face while you’re in the middle of typing a sentence. Also, an option to make a personalized added phrases list in the Phrasebook tab would be great. I have commonly used phrases that I’m sure are different from others’ commonly used phrases. Being able to have those ready at hand will save time and efficiency, which are important when you’re lost or confused or need to give directions immediately.
  • Great fluent intigration! Mar 2, 2018

    By JamesOsbornee
    I would love to give this amazing app a 5 star review. The fact that it auto translates what you type pretty accurately compare-able to fluent speakers of translated language. I’m also very fond of the bubble that pops up when you copy text. Not having to leave the app to open another app just to do the translation, makes having conversations in two languages much smoother and fluid. However the reason I am doing s 4 star is because I’m currently experiencing a bug that I hope to bring light too or find out if it’s something that is being targeted currently. When you type too fast on the keyboard it will crash and reload the original Apple keyboard. It freezes as you type quite often as well. Again great app but just this one thing for now!
  • Nice app, but missing spoken Bulgarian. Jun 11, 2019

    By Celtic Valley
    I saw the advertisement for iTranslate where one could speak in one language and the app would speak it in a target language, and vice versa. That looked very cool to me so I downloaded iTranslate and paid for the trial to try this feature. It really does work. I tried it for English to Chinese. Wow. Unfortunately, I downloaded iTranslate because I am visiting Bulgaria. It turns out that Bulgarian is not a spoken language yet for iTranslate. This is the only reason I am giving this app four stars. I have no complaints about the app otherwise, and I fully understand that it takes time to build a large library of spoken languages. So take my four stars with a grain of salt. This could be the five star app you were looking for.
  • Make more languages available offline Aug 28, 2018

    By Frapp Lover
    I really love this app, it’s easy to use and extremely helpful when I travel. However I am disappointed that ONLY one (Arabic, -Egypt) language from the continent of Africa is available offline and has the voice feature. The other for the languages from the continent of Africa (< than 10 languages) do not have the offline availability or voice feature. In the next upgrade can the languages of Igbo, Swahili, Sudanese, Yoruba & Zulu be given additional features that some of the other languages have? This definitely would increase my usage of your app/recommendations to others who are also world travelers and have me purchase the pro feature again.
  • Previously Purchased Old App, Not Repurchasing in New Nov 24, 2017

    By TransRapid
    Offers a + version which is paid, then makes it unavailable to download and tries to charge you twice by IAP in this version. Other developers in a similar situation have given the + features in the unified version if you already purchased them in the standalone +. NOT THESE GUYS! *Reply to developer response. Thanks for the reply, but that’s entirely not the case. I can’t access the pro features I paid for. I tried restoring purchases but your team must have changed the list of purchases available, removing the option I had paid for, even if it was recreated; as my purchases which do show in iTunes cannot be restored in your app.
  • A Sleek, Efficient Design Plagued By Ruthless [in-your-FACE!] Ads Sep 12, 2018

    By von Mitman
    This product has proven a clean & concise tool that quickly translates a multitude of differing languages; with your word swiftly translated into the language of choice. This does so rather swiftly as well which is always appreciated. My one qualm with this app is that it essentially suffocates you with ads and “deals” prior to being able to actually use the system itself. I suggest they find a perhaps different strategy; preferably one involving a less aggressive approach with these adds when essentially hold you hostage in certain scenarios. Other than my qualms with their approach towards ads, I overall enjoy this system and love using it.
  • Decent, but the Pro idea makes it harder. Translate issues aswell. Jul 9, 2019

    By Dragondripper
    If you meet someone who dosen’t speak your language, you might have to or want to talk to them. Or in other cases like if you want to order food. Well it doesn’t allow you to, due to the subscription. Though, of corse, there are some translate errors that might need to be looked into. If I put in “¿Está?” on one side, (using Spanish, of corse,) then flip it over, then flip it over again, (having “¿Está?” Where it should be, with what is, “Is it?” Or supposed to be, on the other side.) “¿Está?” is now “¿¿ Está?”. Either when you switch it, it becomes different, or this is a mistake. Please fix this.
  • Apple Watch app Jun 13, 2020

    By imbruce&u
    I use iTranslate on my watch, it’s my favorite complication. Whenever I think of a phrase that I want to say in French that I don’t quite remember, I simply dictate it into my watch and Voilà there is the translation. I only wish there was someway to go from French back to English so that if I said something in French that I wasn’t sure was correct it could validate my recollection. It’s quite easy to do that with the iPhone app, but the Watch app doesn’t have that function. All the same, it works quite well going from English to French on my watch. But I would give it six stars if it could go both ways on the Watch app!
  • Liked the free version but wasn’t enough Feb 1, 2019

    By kathitourist
    I’m trying to communicate with someone who speaks no English and my Spanish is only a few words at best. The free app was great but only allows 100 characters at a time, and 15 entries. Then you’re cut off. Since I was communicating Eng translated to Span then allowing the other person to type Span to translate to Eng for me, that didn’t work very well. So I’m trying out the PRO version. Just paid for it (for a year) and now I am trying to figure out how to use it. So far I’ve gotten nowhere- Ugh! The four stars were for the free version. Once I figure out how to navigate this PRO version I’ll review that.
  • It will help you get by... Feb 5, 2020

    By Alupinya
    Please note, I’m asking a lot from it. American living in Germany and using it in/for a German language course. My wife is German and also a English and German teacher. It’s been pointed out on more than one occasion “that doesn’t mean (xyz) at all...” when using or quoting this app. If you’re using it just to get around for a vacation, sure. Plus (at least in Germany) they’re very polite and (almost) everyone speaks English so they won’t point out this app has missed the mark. If you just want to find a the bathroom or get food and a beer, I’ve used a free app that is a lot better for communicating. (if this is now free absolutely download it, but if not...). Remember I need to know “Wie spät ist es?”- is not - “what time is it” (the app translation) but what it truly says which is “How late is it?” so... For when you’re listening to someone speak or building sentences on your own later you’ll think wie means “what” and spät means time (what/was - time/zeit). It’s not always wrong, but it’s not always 100% right for everyday/conversational usage. If you do download, remember wie may not be what.

    Came here from Baidu Translate. Cantonese translation isn't the best but I am grateful it included this language. Should not have to pay for camera translate when there are already ads. I used free version but uninstalled when I found free camera translate elsewhere.
  • Good idea, needs polish Jan 23, 2018

    By DrWurm
    So a couple of things I immediately noticed. The iMessage app keyboard is broken. You can’t type alternate characters (like “ç”) because the menu disappears when you move your finger to select them. It works if you install the actual iMessage keyboard, but not in the iMessage app. I would really like to have the 3D touch cursor control enabled in the keyboard (firm press turns keyboard area into trackpad to move cursor in text field). I speak english and the person I use this with speaks Portuguese. A lot of her messages to me are mixed language. If she sends me one that starts in English and then ends in Portuguese, then the copied message button performs an english->portuguese translation, which means I get no help from it. It would help to be able to reverse the translation direction so that the part I need translated actually translates.
  • Wrong Translation Jun 25, 2019

    By GAMERGEEKPLAYS
    I heard about the app from a few friends and they told me to try it out. As a friend, I decided to check it out. Of course, I know two languages, English and Japanese. So, I was thinking I could find out if the translation are right. Even find a few new words myself. So I typed in some stuff in English. Guess what? They even got the simple ‘Hello’ in Japanese wrong! I mean, if you are learning Japanese, that is the first thing you learn. And yet, some people may think the is simply correct. They got others wrong, too. My friend has a trip overseas and so she tried getting a good translate app to learn a couple of words. Poor girl thinks that the words are correct. Even I know. Who is running it? Make a app that actually works. Not give me and others half way. Thank you for reading this.
  • 😟 Feb 6, 2019

    By Peanut D.
    I loved it when I first got it but it got annoying because you have to pay for ALMOST EVERYTHING! If your in a different country and your trying to talk to someone who doesn’t speak the same language as you, you can’t use the app unless you have WiFi so if your in a part of town with no WiFi, then your just out of luck and you can’t communicate because you have to PAY just to use the app out of WiFi! Also if your in a different country and there’s a sign not in your language you have to pay to use the camera that translates words from signs and papers and stuff. So if something says danger and you don’t speak the language of the sign then the sign doesn’t really matter to you even though it is important because you just have to pay.
  • Quit asking me to upgrade! Jan 11, 2020

    By earthimmigrant
    App itself is great. I’m docking two stars for stupidly high prices and the fact that every time I open the app, often at work in an attempt to quickly help a customer who doesn’t speak english, I have to wait for and close the prompt asking me to upgrade. I get that you want money, but I don’t use it enough to justify the $6/month or $50/year. Also, you already have tabs for paid features in the free app. Isn’t that enough to remind users that there’s more available, for a fee? You have to actually hinder their use of the app? Forget it. I’m looking for a different option, maybe with a reasonable one-time fee instead of an outrageous subscription. This app obviously isn’t for casual users.
  • Explanation of “Premium” and “Pro” would be helpful Mar 17, 2018

    By Dude0u812
    I paid $5 for “Premium” a while back, and it does restore. Now there is a “Pro” “subscription” that costs $5/month and apparently gives you the ability to translate to and from Mandarin (and some other tweaks). I’m still not clear what fresh content this “Premium” translation level offers- are they building their own words or something? Not a fan of subscriptions in general, but makes sense for newspapers or other applications where you do need to continually update content or license external content (like Netflix). But to my mind this is neither- words are pretty well standardized at this point in history, and doubt this company needs to license words. $40-60/ year?!? Good luck if they can make the subscription model work, I guess. Wish it was clearer what “Pro” and “Premium” mean to them. Partly this is a problem with Apple’s formatting, they should have a standard hyperlink and insist that developers “flesh out” exactly what benefits the different up-charges provide. For simplicity, I will look around for another app to buy that covers Mandarin-English on a 1-shot payment plan.
  • Acceptable but not entirely accurate. Nov 13, 2019

    By Flo Warren
    This app is able to translate some things accurate to where I can get the idea of what a sentence in gaelic is talking about but it is not always accurate. Sometimes it will give a translation of a sentence that is totally off the wall. I have been studying Irish for over 2 years and it’s laughable that some of the sentences translated have nothing to do with the actual subject. Also some sentences have numbers and characters in the middle of the translated sentence; I don’t understand that. Overall it does a decent enough job but I wish it was 100 percent accurate. I would buy it if it were absolutely accurate but so far it is not in Irish.
  • Could be better😞 Apr 11, 2020

    By Nick T. 😀
    It breaks my soul to do this because this app has so much potential. But it’s rather ridiculous to need to pay for something that can easily be replaced with Google Translate. Also, sometimes it doesn't even work! I looked up a Latin phrase on this app: Contra malignatatem protege nos. Some of you may be familiar with this phrase, but the point is that the app didn't know what it meant. Google Translate did. And if you don't pay the prices, the app is basically useless. No camera translations. No voice conversations (which is the main reason I downloaded this). No nothing. So to sum up: why pay when you can get something better online? For free?🤑
  • Please help me, Sep 11, 2019

    By uwudjdkws
    Personally I really like this app, it’s more accurate than I could expect it to be, but today when I decided to use it, it said “Server Error.” And it said that it could not work. I’m sure it’s not a network problem because I have WiFi that works pretty efficient and it said “wait for 30 seconds before trying again” I tried it five minutes later and the same note popped up again. I also went to the translate voice edition (similar app to this to which I believe you guys own too) and it said the same thing. I’m not sure if it’s just me but can somebody please notify me or fix the issue? Thanks.
  • LOVED this app initially & would have paid for it, BUT... May 30, 2018

    By GoodStuffHappens
    Initially this app would have gotten 5 stars. It beat google translate and a tu ally did a decent job translating English to German & vise versa; especially for a free app. But of late the app consistently crashes immediately after is finishes the cycle of translation; and before I have time to even verify it’s accuracy so not sure if it’s still as correct as it used to be I read in a some reviews that it isn’t anymore; i.e. Korean for example, but I wouldn’t know since it keeps crashing. Wrote to Support and will see what happens. Also asked me to upgrade which I strongly considered but not with some of the small print in permissions. Beware that it requires access to any past translations as well & beware that anything you type it paste into it to translate will be accessed by this app; so you might wish to leave out financial or sensitive Information, etc.; like if you’re translating a contract. Also, the premium (paid) version price tag seems rather steep to a lot of the reviewers here as well as to me the way it is organized now. I’d say it’s a bit of “carrot” app; “Lookie what I got here! Okay now come and get it!” ...Once you start chasing it, it eludes you. ... If they make improvements and adjustments, I’ll alter my review, but for I’ll say, sadly, I’d pass!
  • Never got to use it Jun 8, 2018

    By Phoenix1887
    I really dislike apps that puts such a huge wall around their features they want you to pay before you get to use them. They make it seem like they are such gold you can’t even taste without paying. People don’t pay until they’re hooked they need to get you hooked on it first. And this apps’ metric for measuring use in order to get you hooked is very weakly implemented. I signed up for the free trial when I downloaded the app so that I could use the features but I did not need them at the time so I never used the app until the trial expired. So in the end I never even tried it one time. That is a really dumb trial. The app needs to measure the use of the app and give you a trial based on actual use not some finite amount of time. Especially when translation is something you use when you need it not just on demand when the app tells you to use it. You don’t have something to translate until you have something you need translated! Bad design when it comes to trial. Focus more on user experience. Sadly I can’t even use the app so what can I do? Uninstall
  • Add more languages please. Apr 28, 2020

    By Brandon Ryder
    i have a Peruvian related family where my mother and I has a similar bloodline to them. there was a Facebook post my cousin made and she’s Peruvian. So I end up using Mexican language to translate but I couldn’t find her language 😟. Instead I brought myself to the usual Mexican translation. I wanted to comment on her but I want to make sure I’m fluent in their language so they can understand. So, I typed my words to translation of what I wanted to comment, which is a little joke. So I thought it could go well! WRONG. my mother had told me that the comment came out as an insult, not a joke. I tried to say it the way I want it to be said but instead I had to go back to her post and delete my comment. ☹️ Mainly it was my fault, I wish to respect your app but I am really disappointed that this app does not have any additional Hispanic languages. Not saying this app is uncultured, but I would wish more for it to adapt to change. I’m just saying.
  • In Japan Oct 1, 2018

    By JRocFL
    I was excited to get the app initially. It did help make some translations. I translated a few phrases (while on WiFi) and screenshot the display so that it could be used as we were out. Of course the issue was that I could not predict what conversations would come about. So I did the trial for “Off-Line” Translations. When I used it out and off line, the Japanese did not understand it; could not read it, and expressed “it made no sense”. Therefore, the off-line version did NOT work. As I used the same pre-recorded phases (when in WiFi) there was no problem. The Japanese laughed as they understood my punchlines effortlessly. Another issue was that the app did NOT recognize Japanese symbols. It displays that it only works when on WiFi- and yet when I used it; still no progress. Surely it was a let down for I needed it the most. Gotta cancel this app as soon as I get back home. It helped, but did not perform as designed.
  • Used to love it Now ads are ruining it. Sep 20, 2017

    By auntiegramma
    Brief review-- This translate app was always fantastic. Little by little my free version has been adding more and more ads. I fully support the need for ads, and usually get the paid version when I can. Tonight was the last straw and I've deleted the app. I'm trying to look up a simple phrase, lying beside my mate, who is fast asleep, and suddenly (without warning or giving me any choice , a LOUD video ad starts blaring. I nearly jumped out of my skin. No more iTranslate for me... It'll have to be Google for me. Sad to have to leave, but I *never* want that to happen again. Update: Developer says more ads isn't true, but... I haven’t tried reinstalling, but I have to tell you that the kicker for me was this: I was using iTranslate while lying up in bed with my partner fast asleep next to me… SUDDENLY and very loud and jarring there was a VIDEO ad… which made me jump out of my skin… and woke my partner. I have NEVER before seen a video ad in your app. Ever. So, you may not have increased the occurrence of ads, but this (video ads) is most definitely new to me - and I’ve had your app for years. Was it just my luck that this never occurred before? And I think you folks need to fix those videos so users have an option to mute. Until I know that this could never happen again, I don’t think I’ll be using iTranslate. It really was rather dramatic.
  • Not What I Expected Jul 31, 2018

    By EverlyBaine
    I downloaded this app because I read that it can be integrated with iMessages so I figured it would make things easier for me to translate languages directly from the iMessage app instead of copying and pasting into a separate translation app or website however, that is not the case. Yes, this app is integrated with iMessages and allows YOUR message to be easily translated within the iMessage app before sending but when someone responds to you in a language you wish to translate you will still have to copy and paste to know what they are saying, and you can do that for free with Google Translate instead of $4.99 a month. Suggestion: It would be better if the app was designed to automatically translate the other person’s text message without having to copy/paste or click on a bunch of buttons that apparently don’t work (the chat bubble button on bottom of keyboard).
  • It WAS great.. Jan 20, 2019

    By Oralia820
    I only downloaded this app because of a college course Spanish class. When i got the app it had barely been released on the app store & honestly the translations were pretty spot on! It WAS , WAS a good translator app, but now i don't I DO NOT recommend downloading this to only pay for it to work! This app never needed a subscription to work! Recently ive been noticing that every time i try to translate anything, The App SHUTS-DOWN PURPOSELY after every time a word or phrase is to be translated to the preferred language. For that i am removing this app after 6 yrs of having it on my phone. It was a great! WAS! Ridiculous how it shuts down now when i never had that problem. Now if i want a translation i have to pay!? Nope. Sorry, removed from my phone. I loved the app i honestly did just the whole having to pay for it to MAYBE work. Nah. Im good, ill stick to google.
  • Beware! Oct 31, 2018

    By ajc 7
    I initially would have rated this app higher. I bought it some time ago and used it, then paid to purchase the Premium version. Now when I try to use it I cannot access the app. Instead I get a drop down menu pushing the purchase of the “Pro” version for $4.99/month. There is a note that says “ restore purchases” which I assumed would restore my already paid for “Premium” version. It does not! Instead the buy- the- Pro version drop down menu continues and I cannot access the Premium version. I have contacted developer on various occasions about the problem. They tell that yes I have the Premium version but they do nothing to give me access to it. The buy- the- Pro at $4.99 that is automatically renewable forever continues. Beware of what your are getting into with this app!
  • Poor translations when it works Apr 27, 2020

    By NonParloItaliano
    I am using this app to translate from Italian to English and 1/3 times it won’t translate the word at all, instead it just repeats the same word I typed in English in the Italian box. I’m typing things like “lemon cake recipe” and “woke up” that got zero translation. It also shows me a list of the English verb conjugations not the Italian ones. It seems more like a basic dictionary than a smart translator. I checked my settings to confirm it understands I know English and am learning Italian - all the settings are right. It’s also no longer working with my microphone and I’ve had the app three weeks - just enough time for me to have paid for it. This is very disappointing for the price. I would recommend looking for another app if you want to translate anything complex like a recipe :)
  • Limited offline functionality, and inaccurate Jul 29, 2018

    By Bodiddly21
    I bought this app, to have short, off-line exchanges in Japanese. It has only confused those with whom I have attempted to converse. The app is befuddled by plural nouns, verbs in past or future tense, commas, and many simple words, such as triple. Sentences are re-arranged, often rendering the opposite meaning. In order to say anything, I have to repeatedly translate my statement or question from English to Japanese, and back again, tweaking and simplifying it each time. To make matters worse, many of the most attractive features do not function without an internet connection, and voice translations are sent to Apple. They do not need any of my biometric data. In short, this app is useless to me, and the subscription based model makes it expensive. I do not recommend it.

    Began downloading to buy PRO until skimming through reviews, then quickly uninstalled before even setting up. Too many people appear to have premature charges & some accidental charges from their kids etc but they all had 1 major breaking denominator which was the developers same cold repetitive response that they all accepted the terms and conditions because we all endless time to read the 20 pages of legalities & TOS every single time we sign up or purchase anything.
  • Scam, forces you into a subscription Nov 27, 2020

    By [N7]NobodyCats
    If you don’t believe me download it, you can’t use anything but the bare minimum of translating by typing it in manually, If you want to use a translator app just use google translate app completely free and has a camera translator function, you have to pay actual money to even use the camera function on this app, heck you can’t do anything but the bare minimum with this the rest of the stuff they force you to do a monthly subscription or do the free trial, that also forces you into a subscription. When you try to use anything but the minimum it brings up a window telling you to pay a 5.99 monthly fee, or do the 7 day free trial with a subscription. It’ll forcefully subscribe you if you do the free trial. But regardless paying for this is pointless when google translate app is completely free and has the camera function. This is just a scam to get as much money as possible which is why they have a subscription system so they can keep taking in money instead of a one time purchase. Basically unless you like spending or losing money for an app you likely won’t use more than 1-2x a month don’t get it. Besides with how accessible the internet and what not is, why would you bother paying for something like this that is literally free everywhere. Anything that has access to the web can be used to get to a translator website. Now try imagine paying $50-$75 a month or year for this?

    Forces you to subscribe at the ridiculously high price of $39.99 per year if you dont cancel within a week. The annoying part is there is NO LINK to cancel. Even the button to email support does nothing. Not only that, but the app does nothing more than google translate (free) and doesnt have the language I need to translate (Mayan) anyways. Useless and scammy. BEWARE!
  • Feb 18, 2021

    By Tsundy
    It has potential, really, but them scamming people AND being snarky with there automatic responses, is enough for me not to support them. I was considering trying out the trial, because that's what a trial is for, to try out things. Based off all the other reviews, they would proceed to not let me cancel it, steal my money, and then blame it on Google. Google made playstore, not your app. Refuse to show support to unprofessional babies, who can't even scam people sneakily. So eat this one star.

    By Tomas Kuli
    Too many steps to get a translation, doesn't translate accurately, and doesn't auto detect the source language. Should probably improve the app before charging for it. Dear developers, I did give specifics. The app does not auto detect the source language, does not accurately translate into the target language, and requires too many steps to get a translation, i.e I have to search through the long list of languages to find the source, then the target language to get an incorrect translation.

I chose the same option both times cost related issues so I do not have the financial capabilities right now to be paying for $40 apps during covid-19 I have to rely on the government's unemployment that doesn't even pay 1/3 of all my bills.

  • I can’t even 🤦🏾‍♀️🤯 Dec 30, 2017

    By Katybaggs
    Ok, look /listen...When I first got this app I thought it would be amazing and such a big help, and the possibility using it on my Apple Watch was a bonus; I was really looking forward to paying for it after my trial, buuut then I started getting wrong translations all over the place. I want to know who is providing the translations for these words...cause this is nonsense. I’m learning Korean and it kind of defeats the purpose of having a translator app, that provides the WRONG translations a lot of the time; I stopped using google translate for that same reason. I get tired of having to look up the word online just to get the correct meaning, it’s frustrating. When I look up words in the translator I am not typing in American letters, I am typing in 한글 (Hangul), just to make sure that I get the correct translation. I have even provided the corrected translations for some of the words I have looked up through the app, and surprise, surprise they are STILL wrong and haven’t been corrected; why have “wrong?” A feature in the app if you are not going to take advantage of it, and correct what is effectively wrong...SMH. Either way my money will stay in my pocket when it comes to even thinking about purchasing this app 🙅🏾‍♀️. Move on there’s nothing to see here.

  • Conflicted Feelings Jan 4, 2018

    By Peytonhk47
    I would like to start this review by saying that the idea is really great. I would totally subscribe for the verb conjugations and the layout is very clean. However I noticed another review noting that the Korean translations are incorrect, something I also noticed when using the app. 갈게 does not translate to “LL” at all. 徒然 didn’t even have a translation and was just romanized in English to “Tozenn” which is an incorrect romanization... Although I do see the option to input correct translations if they are wrong and I am not a developer, I feel that if you are trying to get people to use this as a translating app, you might want to hold off on some languages until they are fully developed and correct. As for the people who are saying iTranslate “automatically charges” and that the developer is accusing users of lying, I understand where you come from. But most apps do the same thing, advertising a free trial. They will charge you after the free trial, which I think is wrong and should be verified with the user before they assume you bought the PRO version, but you can always say you do not want to start a free trial. It’s a good idea to read everything before you just click next.
