Google Translate app reviews

  • Used to be good 3/5

    By khozimaz
    Why was the voice/sound removed for so many languages? Like I said, used to be good but without the sound pronouncing the translation, it’s not so good anymore.
  • Broken features - conversation 3/5

    By Frodoking
    Great app, but seems like the conversation feature is broken in the latest update. Unfortunate as I am traveling and would otherwise find good use for it.
  • Sluggish 1/5

    By tinhead168
    What used to be a useful app is starting to slow down, be bloated and delaying translations. Want the old google translate back - the one that works. And no, I don’t believe it’s a hardware issue. Problem is pervasive from my iPhone 12 Pro to my iPhone 11 Pro Max and my iPhone X
  • Application is hanging 3/5

    By despirate pero
    Please the developer of this app should do something as fast as possible. Normally this is the best translator app I have come across but to be honest since i updated it to this recent version I have equally noticed and experienced some abnormal behavior from the same app and one of the behavior us that it is really hanging you can’t easily copy or paste it is beginning to make me sick. In case you would want to know which phone I use it on, it is IPhone 12. Please do something than
  • What Happend 1/5

    By Parabas528
    Everything is so slow it almost doesn't work. It’s been like this for some time, figured there would be some update by now. What’s going on
  • Very bad recently 1/5

    By speedfire77?
    - my iPhone works perfectly with all apps,even if I’m opening many apps in the same time, but with your app my phone start lagging, and if i want to change the language, it’s take a lot of time..this version is a disaster.

    By yevsnskam
    The old version of Google translate did excellent job in translating texts from images, as I could freely select the text (paint it) and get it translated. But now the new version is VERY DISTURBING. It can’t translate from image.
  • Please bring back scan feature 1/5

    By mc2279
    I used this app to scan and translate individual words and phrases. It was the best feature of the app. Now that everything is automatically done, the translations are an unintelligible mess.
  • Now Slowest app ever ! !!! 1/5

    Recently becomes so slow on iPhone 13! Takes up to 5-7 seconds before it lets me to type the word after the opening the app. PLEASE FIX !!!!!!!
  • Should add more languages that have voice output 4/5

    By Zieg Heil
    Please add more languages that have voice output. Like Irish for example.
  • Super slow out of nowhere 1/5

    By kanyesappelsin
    As of a few days ago, the app freezes every time it is opened. Barely usable. App doesn’t open on iPad.
  • Crash 1/5

    By 787898790889887
    Why does my application crahes
  • Trash 1/5

    By Dave in MI
    Offline doesn’t work now..
  • I don’t like the new version 1/5

    By JesusIsLord137
    Please bring back the older version where you can drag your finger across any word(s) you choose from a photo taken. And be able to copy and paste in a note pad. I used to be able to translate my Sunday school books and now I cannot. This new version is very difficult and I do not like it whatsoever. Horrible horrible horrible upgrade! Please bring it back please!
  • Poor translation never translates correctly 1/5

    By awtjnvfjngvxf
    the worst app everi write something in English to be translated into Spanish it turns the whole sentence into something else not translating exactly what i said very horrible
  • هاذه الطبيق زباله 1/5

    By eisakarimi
    لحد ينزلو
  • stupid google lens 1/5

    By Yoshi Yt
    they changed the camera scanner where you swipe to select text from photos app freezes frequently as of the latest update
  • New update 6/2022 terrible awful update. Difficult to use 1/5

    By fliodolo
    Not sure what the developers were thinking on this radically new update. It’s very frustrating to use. Can’t click out to type on keyboard the words you want to translate. You click “x” to try and erase to input a new word. It just goes back to the old word without deleting the field to accept a new word to be translated. Impossible to swap languages. You want to go from Spanish > English to English > Korean? You need to change the English to any other language. Then go back to the first field and change to English then third field Korean. There’s no longer instant translation as the word being typed. You hope it’s some sort of sick joke but April fools was 2 months ago.
  • Malfunction 2/5

    By edu_1707
    Works terrible in my iphone13 pro, it's slow and it freezes.
  • Good translator 4/5

    By AppStoreAppBuyer
    Good translator but sometimes gets things wrong but nothing’s perfect.
  • Find a solution 2/5

    By Wisam Tahayna
    Why can’t I copy the definitions to translate it?😡
  • The new update ruined a great tool to help learn Chinese 1/5

    By Wiifan
    So, I’ve been learning Chinese for a few years now, and one of the most useful features has been the camera mode in Google Translate. When you learn a new character in Chinese, if you don’t know the pronunciation, it can be difficult to search up. Google Translate for full sentences in Chinese has always been iffy, so I usually found it most helpful to select “Camera” mode (instead of instant translation), SELECT THE COUPLE CHARACTERS I DIDN’T KNOW, and get the pinyin and English translation. But the update got rid of the ability to take the picture before translating, which makes it more difficult to find the characters I’m trying to learn. On top of that, when I click on the translation to learn the pinyin of the words (since the pronunciation doesn’t show in the preview) - it will TRANSLATE THE ENGLISH BACK INTO CHINESE TO GIVE YOU A DIFFERENT CHARACTER WITH THE “SAME” MEANING. The pinyin is very important so I can type the character and not have to rely on using a picture to translate in the future, but Googles update makes this impossible since you don’t get the original characters pinyin unless the “translation” back to Chinese gives you the same characters. Overall, a super infuriating update that ruined this app.
  • Review 1/5

    By qdhahd
    Latest update is terrible. Couldn’t even click on anything. Very slow and lagged. Used to be my go-to translating app but now I don’t even want to use it.
  • Update 3/5

    By Jiawen he
    When I update google translate,it said that I can’t update it, I’m said about that. Maybe I will never use it again... I gave it three star because the app is not bad, it is still good.
  • the app is broken 1/5

    By Joshnniuq
    won't open. stuck on logo
  • They ruined it for profit 2/5

    By kevrock420
    They removed the best parts on the free version likely for profit. The camera translate and the slowing down of the playback, not interested in paying for things that should be free. ( with adds)
  • Awful new update 1/5

    By kira09248
    They switched to using google lens which means when you take an image and translate it, it automatically does it which is nice but when you try and see the original text plus the translation, it instead translates the English translation back into the original language that the image has. Which means that the grammar and everything is messed up. Not great if you need translation to study a language.
  • New upgrade is AWFUL 1/5

    By amin_mrd99
    New update is not good for all languages I prefer choosing the words in the picture rather than converting the words spontaneously.
  • Won’t open 1/5

    By Allee321
    Won’t open since the new update. It used to be a great app.
  • ☹️ 1/5

    By معاذ و مؤمن
    The new update is very badddddd
  • Update got rid of previous features 2/5

    By 5748292294473919
    You can no longer take a picture and highlight individual words to translate them, and can now only use the lense functionality which I find to be spoty at best. I like being able to zoom, but the scan feature was my most used one so now I have to find a new translation app.
  • Offline translation does not work after last update 1/5

    By Dragons arecute555
    After the last update, the app will not let you download offline translation files. Instead, it will say “No languages available for offline use, please check back later.” Please correct the issue and I will give it more stars.
  • Gone downhill, no camera 3/5

    By Zaploo
    Can no longer point it at text for instant reading. Bummer.
  • The Best App of Translate English Forever . 5/5

    By Hussien Jr
  • Translation is great, app freezes constantly. 3/5

    By BMHDE
    When you first open the app, and anytime you leave the app, it freezes and does not allow you to enter anything for several seconds. This makes it very difficult to have a text conversation with someone in a reasonable amount of time. It is a huge issue, particularly when you need to translate quickly in real time.
  • Laggy 1/5

    By yvzeed
    I’ve been using it for my studying for about 3 years. After the last update it has been lagging and the response is super slow! Fix it
  • I’m angry. 5/5

    By Cpt. 19
    I wasted time with all the allegedly free translator apps that had a premium subscription free snuck in. Should hav e just downloaded this to begin with and called it a day.

    By dgdgduduhddjshyfkpel
    the google translate app is good before this weird dumb update but if u had already downloaded it and just found it out, im sorry but the update is terrible and u might want to find a better translater app
  • I like this app but it has one flaw 2/5

    By realkidderdog
    I would give 5 stars but how you can download language for offline translation which rarely works even for basic sentence. I would like to be able to have the option to download full dictionary of chosen language even if it take up a lot of memory. I have plenty of space on my 1tb phone and most of the time I need to use translator I’m in an area with no service. If there was no download option probably give 3 stars.
  • A little big problem 3/5

    By 146moon146

    By fg3406

  • Not working 3/5

    By holly honey Rose
    Recently the App dose not work appropriately, would you please help me, I deleted it and reinstalled it 3 times so far, what should I do?
  • Horrible update 1/5

    By updatetranslate
    The previous version was much better. It can’t detect my photos for translation. Doesn’t work properly at all. Needs to be changed to the previous version!
  • Not sure 🤔 1/5

    By gvldenambition
    I’ve used this app for a long time now. But for some reason it keeps force closing and when I get it to open there are long delays in the typing and sending as a text message. It never used to do this to me before.
  • Lagging 1/5

    By janhaf
    It keeps lagging in a unbelievable way. I hope you will fix that
  • It’s terrible 1/5

    By ghalamekhamoush
    The new update of Google Translate doesn't let me do what I used to on the older version. The older version was showing translated texts over images of nature by accident and I need that for my work. The new one "fix" that and doesn't help
  • I prefer the website. 4/5

    The app works fine, but it doesn’t include romanization, while the website does. Please add this.
  • translation 2/5
