  • Easy to use and HELPFUL Jul 11, 2020

    I don’t speak Spanish at all but met a Latino guy who needed help taking some classes at the community college I work at. We only used the free part and within two minutes of us opening it we were communicating, not just talking. We were able to ask each other any questions we had and give detailed answers. Think about that...this app allowed me, an English speaker to help a Spanish speaking man come up with a plan to get him an education and improve his life. The look on his face as it became clear that this app worked and he wasn’t going to have to struggle to find the words to say what he wanted and try to understand the answers he was getting...within a few minutes!!!! This man came in knowing it was going to be difficult to get the info he needed but he didn’t care because an education was that important to him. He left and his feet barely touched the ground because this app put the American Dream within his reach and as an American who was able to help him take the first steps towards that I couldn’t be more proud!!!! So in case you are wondering I give this app ten million stars👌🌈🌈🌈.

  • 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!

    More accurate than google translate. I see why everyone thinks there's no free trial. You hit "start free trial" button and it pops up to pay for 1 year subscription. You have to hit X on top right instead of "start free trial" button, it's like in a game ad with "try again" button that only take you to store. Anywho, I'm stuck overseas so this helps...can't afford to get pro subscription though as I'm not able to make money here, so I'm forced to type and show text only.

    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.

    This app would be good if the stupid ads didn't cover 90% of your screen so you could actually read your translation. That and the record to text function is garbage. It only records for a few seconds before shutting down and translates it doesn't give you any time at all.

    Pricing: offers a very short free trial, which will immediately sign you up for a yearly subscription (40 dollars), I suggest getting a monthly (5 dollars) if you will be using it rarely or want to demo it properly. My experience trying to use photo translation for spot Japanese translation was underwhelming, and as this was the primary reason for getting this app I can not recommend it. It might have more success with more conventional type sets.

  • 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.

    £39.99 charged to use a FREE trial, even though I cancelled the subscription the same day. It wouldn't let me sign up to the trial without selecting payment method (I did this with another app that DID NOT charge until AFTER the trial period was over). Both iTranslate and Google have been useless (both referring me to the other)...UNACCEPTABLE. Be very wary signing up for the free trial, as I am not the first it has happened to.

    This app claims that it is free and by reading the reviews of other people's experience it looks like it is not free and is a rip off, and when I downloaded it, I completely understood what people meant. This app is a complete rip off, it does not allow you to use any feature but the writer translation system and I know for a fact you do NOT need to pay $50 dollars for crying out loud to use a CAMERA TO TRANSLATE. I do not want a generic computerised response but a human responding to me.

  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

  • 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.

    Hello! The app was pretty incredible, but I didn't end up needing it as bad. I'm certain that I cancelled my subscription a bit back, but the money still got taken from my account?? Your support page is down, which is really what got the review this far down. I've been looking everywhere for a solution or an explanation, but there is no information on anything anywhere. EDIT: I got it fixed, the support page is apparently down, but they've got a very fast email response. Thank you!

  • Very Good App. Jun 29, 2020

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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

    This app does what I need it to. Lots of languages and the live translating through the camera works much more consistently than I expected. But I have only used it to translate Spanish and English. My two star is because I cannot believe that the only option for pro is to pay a yearly subscription! Not worth 40 dollars, not to me. Take my money, I shall find endeavor to find a better alternative over the next year.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Used to be a great Application... Jul 4, 2018

    By Ericathebeast
    It’s so sad to see how this app has gone downhill when it used to be fantastic. They now charge an exorbitant amount comparatively (4.99 per month), and compared to other services it’s just not worth it. Not only that, but “updates” have mislead many subscribers to sign up for a paid account, when it looks like a normal update, I’m surprised Apple hasn’t put a stop to that? Also, many mistakes in translations can be found, and if you read replies from other users, you will see that this company either expects its users to find and fix its own software issues, and/or rudely denies complaints, and calls people liars. Also, adds that used to be silent banners are now frequent, loud and disruptive; especially when you are trying to concentrate on translating. Also, now that I’ve read how poorly this company has been treating other people with critiques is honestly shocking! I’m not sure if this app is under new ownership or management, but it’s not something I want to rely on with all the incorrect translations, newly added loud commercials and combative and disrespectful treatment of subscribers. After having this app for years, I’m now of to find something better. Too bad.
