  • Translations 2/5

    The translations aren’t always correct
  • Needs better translation for Persian language 2/5

    By jay288436
    The translation for Persian is terrible and doesn’t have an option to hear how words are pronounced. Please fix that
  • It’s almost perfect! 5/5

    By tdevoe
    It makes living in foreign countries where you don’t know the language... POSSIBLE! I love it! I wish there was just 1 more convenience option. I would like to be able to take a screenshot and use the share button as if I were going to share it to social media or my notes but instead to be able to share it directly to the Google translate app immediately and have instant photo translation! Is this possible???? I don’t know🤷🏻‍♀️ but it sure would be pretty awesome if so!! Keep up the good work team! We are so appreciative!!
  • Add more transcribe languages 3/5

    Please add more languages to the transcribe feature.
  • Thank you! 5/5

    By cat caper
    Thanks for making this great app. It is so helpful living on a Misawa base
  • Translate used to be great 1/5

    By pick one that isn't used
    Translate used to be great, But I just went to it in May 20 21 and it won’t even let me type. It decides what language I am trying to write and changes what I write. It won’t let me change it back and won’t let me change the language. It keeps trying to change it back to something else. Something is dreadfully wrong, maybe only today, but it’s awful. Please update it again and put it back to what it was when it worked.
  • Translations make no sense 1/5

    By Random Gamer Girl Lisa
    This is the worst translation app. If you have apple just use the provided one
  • Please give the ability to change gender of voice 3/5

    By kirb power

  • Two actions for two stars 3/5

  • I like to learn Russian with it 5/5

    By bobby012345678910
  • Needs more languages 3/5

    By John Antuny
    This is great when I use it at my job because a lot of people that don’t speak English come to shop and I can help them out with this app. On that I give it 5 stars. However, it doesn’t help me on a personal level. It doesn’t have the one language I really need; Assyrian, Surit, or Ashurit, they’re all different names for the same language. If this language can be added then this would get a full 5 stars and an extremely positive review from me! Until then it just get this review and 3 stars
  • Amazing app! 5/5

    By Faizaan
    I’ve been wanting to learn Spanish and this helped me this app should go viral
  • Great but the camera app needs a little bit of work 4/5

    By iLOVEEETacos:)
    Great app. I have always used google translate on google and it works great. I decided to download the app to translate Japanese to English for many manga. It is a little bit confusing when I put it up to my manga. I hope you can fix that a little bit. Overall great app.
  • Great translation app!! 5/5

    By CHL019
    Best overall translator that I’ve been using. I also liked the new addition of pronunciation on both languages, plus definitions for the languages. Thank you.

    By aidbnd
  • Answome 4/5

    By lllvvvcccsssam dienner
    It is a great way to learn another language but it should have to listen every language if you want to do it

  • Google Translate 1/5

    By bull s__t
    Can’t get icon back on iPad very frustrated
  • 1/2 star Useless 1/5

    By galleria photo studio
    app is useless to the highest extent of the word it self.... Troed different languages, fluent in a few of them...Unfortunately app does not work at all... simple words such as signs are just translated wrong....The idea is there like humans going to mars... eventually in may be two or four generations will get there like this translator.... see you in the future....
  • Add a language 4/5

    Add lingala
  • So cumbersome 2/5

    By el guapismo 2030
    This version of the app is very unintuitive. It still works, sort of, but when you’re in a pinch you’re spending more time trying to figure out how to use the app than translating. In previous versions you could quickly translate and reverse translate everything. In this version you really have to have your languages set before you start typing anything or else it takes a number of steps to navigate to the language you want. Often, I’ll type a word in Spanish but the app thinks I’m typing a word in English and it tells me that the Spanish word for the word I’ve just typed is the same word. It’s true, but I can’t quickly “flip” between the languages and instead have to indicate Spanish then retype the word. Time consuming without practice.
  • Camera translator is inaccurate 4/5

    By Viper H.
    I was using the app to translate Japanese text on a PC screen without kanji and I kept getting garbage translations. It wasn’t helpful at all. But I trust that several other language settings work all right with the camera.
  • Speech translation does not work. 2/5

    By ElChelle
    The translations are fairly accurate, but theConversation option and the speech to translate option have never worked. I follow the instructions for the speech to translate. But it never actually translates. The words are written; I can see them on the page, so the mic is picking them up, but then they disappear. I am left with the empty screen with the microphone the same as before the person spoke. I’ve never gotten a translation. Where is it? What happens when it works?
  • Please include message pop on iOS 2/5

    By bantymack
    Please include message pop on iOS. Using Android, the translation button pops up after a message to translate has been copied. It’s too much stress using it on IOS.
  • Google should be embarrassed 1/5

    By Jotingas
    Ask it to translate "You're Welcome" from English to Spanish, or Spanish to English. The system is doing literal translations instead of interpreting, it’s kind of embarrassing that Apples translator is better when it just came out!
  • Annoying paste notifications 3/5

    By Delzzty923
    The app is reasonably good, although the translations aren’t perfect. The most annoying thing, however, is the notification that appears at the top of the screen on the iPhone when you paste from another app. I don’t need to know where I pasted from (I already know), and so I have to wait for the notification to disappear when I need to press the swap button underneath. This should be configurable at the very least, but there are no notification settings for this app on the iPhone. 🙄
  • Sometimes not right translation 2/5

    By Blackelnii
    Sometimes when i am learning japanese, i wanted to try out using this to learn but then i tested out it puting in a japanese word that I DO know but it got it completely wrong
  • No Tap to Translate on the IPhone version 2/5

    By frankskins
    One can’t tap and translate from another app, I hate that I’ve to copy and return back to the app and paste just to translate, you guys should do better, it’s annoying please else I would throw it out of my phone
  • Read this before download IMMEDIATELY 5/5

    By The Amazing Darth Chicken
    Hello. This app is remarkably amazing. Great for memes, movies, and more. The feature where it reads signs+ is awesome. I highly recommend downloading!!!

    By Fabsome Color Girl🦄
    Okay so I was trying to translate my homework because I left my notes at school. I downloaded the app and started to fill out the google form I had for my school work. Once I turn it in, I get a 12/20!!! I thought this app was supposed to HELP!! not make me FAIL!!! Now I can’t even re-do the form. I’m gonna get a bad grade and idk what to do!!
  • Why? WHY?!?! 3/5

    By Mymbrules12345
    Why do no translate apps have zoom in when ur translating something?!? Because what if ur trying to look at something farther away?? It makes the words so freaking small & unreadable, even for someone who can read small text. It’s so stupid!! I mean, there can be a limit, but seriously!! Make it so u can zoom in on something
  • Good app !!! 5/5

    By Loloargentina1973
    It’s very good for essential words but when it comes to frases and stuff ... it gives the literal translation of what you wrote ... and it’s not alway the right thing
  • 😜 or 😖 4/5

    By IzadoreForever
    I came on here to Review Apple’s Translate app, but Apple doesn’t want customer feedback on their apps. So i’ll leave my comment here. Google’s translate app is great. The only improvment it needs is to modernize the look of the app. It looks a bit dated to me, but the functionality is great. Apple’s Translate app, on the other hand, looks great but has terrible funtionality. Apple fix your Translate app.
  • Better then duolingo 5/5

    By im coolboy1234
    I been using the app for a while i like it
  • Too hard to get the tones for Mandarin translations 3/5

    By Drewt_my_horn
    Steps to reproduce: 1) set translation mode for "Chinese -> English" 2) type in the pinyin on your English keyboard ("mo gui" in my case) 3) Google provides the correct translation, "devil," and shows the characters, but no tone markers are provided for the original input I sometimes want to see the tones for a word just as a refresher, but to get that information I have to copy the characters, flip the translation direction, and paste them in. This process is cumbersome considering the tone information is already known by Google at step 3 in the process described above. The tone information is relevant at that step and should be provided there.
  • Great features but terrible follow through 2/5

    By An Allinator
    It’s great to have the features to listen to speech however it barely works. You will press the listen button and play the audio and it will listen to and translate about two words before stopping. The camera feature also is incredibly unreliable, and it is hard for a language like Arabic that reads the opposite way of English and the camera function just jumbles up all the words. The translation is great but the app itself needs a LOT of improvements. A .5 second pause between sentences does not mean the audio is finished!!!!!!
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By LaSalmon
  • Doesn’t work at all!! 1/5

    By UrsieOakley
    I scanned some Chinese text and this app doesn’t work. Wish I could give negative stars
  • Huh? 1/5

    By OnlyMe&NotYou
    I can’t believe someone actually said this was “the worlds most advanced language software company”! Whoever said it was? It never was. That’s why it doesn’t work. Try other apps. I like iTranslate. This app might get you punched in the face if you say the wrong translation. It’s just ridiculous!
  • Happy me 5/5

    By Talia blackmer
    Thanks for such a wonderful app I love it
  • Doesn’t work function copy/past 1/5

    I love Google translate because it helps me with my Chinese homework and makes learning languages a whole lot easier.
  • Bad app 1/5

    By Torpoope

    Plzzzz We need Ugandan language
  • It says that I’m not connected to the internet when I’m on the internet :( 5/5

    By Xmforjdkijsnn
    Is it just me, or does it tell you when your not connected when your really connected. I was starting to go on this app to translate a word when this icon out of nowhere pops up and it tells me that I’m not connected to the internet. I definitely give this app a 5/5 but just make one correction please and help fix this 🥺
  • Does Not Include 3/5

    By justwonderink
  • Saved by language 4/5

    By ✌︎·
    If you classify them by language it'd be much more easy to find them cuz at this point it's useless to save words/phrases if you won't be able to see them
