Doesn’t work 1/5
By Leaners :/
Ok so I have a Russian friend and sometimes the text me something I don’t recognize so I used this app and took a screenshot of the chat and didn’t work I looked at how to use and STILL DIDNT WORK!!!😤
This app is crap! 1/5
By tv com
Any app that says it’s free and then keeps trying to make you purchase service to “make the app work properly,” is complete crap in my book.
This is one of those apps!
Stick to google translator and you’ll be fine.
Great when it works 3/5
I loved this app at first — really great at picking up characters even on really low res pictures — but for the last few months the app has become extremely laggy and clunky. It crashes a lot, and sometimes it doesn’t register my input for a good ten seconds before responding, so now starting up the app and translating even a single word can take several minutes when it used to take 30 seconds. No other app of mine (and I have many) acts like this.
I want to love it like I used to, so I’m hoping an update will fix these issues. Until then I’m defaulting to the less desirable but faster Google Translate app.
Waste of a download 1/5
It’s not free, click bait. Screw companies like this
I can now comprehend what my friends tell me

Garbage very garbage horrible garbage grow some vegetables
Terrible Start 1/5
By there no nicknames.......
It doesn’t even do anything!all it does is take pictures
I hate leaving negative reviews, but... 2/5
You can take the picture but it won’t translate, it will just show you the same language. I couldn’t even copy and paste into another translator to get it.
Well... it used to be free. 1/5
It doesn’t let you use it anymore, assuming there was a new update, unless you upgrade your iCloud Drive AND buy a monthly subscription to the app. Ugh
No translate button 1/5
Instructions tell you to press the translate button after you’ve done everything else. There is no word that says translate any place. There is no word “translate” I can’t find translate button. there is nothing that says translate therefore it does not translate!
UPDATE: I found the button. It does not say translate. It has the letter “a” on it. They need to re-write the help section to indicate what the letter a means. When it finally did translate it was the worst translation I have ever seen.
This is awesome! I wish I knew about this app while we were in Japan. My grandchildren have food allergies and it was difficult to purchase snacks or food for them to take back so that they could try. Thank you for providing this app.
Thank you very much for the brilliant app. Help me a lot with my daughters Spanish homework. Please optimize app for old devices. Nice job
Don’t translate nepali 2/5
By archan rai
I like to translate Nepali language
By Isis Kain
Works pretty good so far.
This used to be my favorite 2/5
Since the update I have been noticing a lot of issues with this app.
It has been giving me wrong translations when I used to not have that problem, even going as far to not even resemble the original text.
I don’t have premium, so it’s just wasting my daily translations.
Anytime the premium message pops up now it also gets rid of my translation or photo and I have to use another one of my daily translations.
I will be looking for a different app:/ this one used to be my favorite
Used to be good. Now it’s not 1/5
I used to use this all the time for my Italian homework but now it won’t let me translate anything unless I subscribe to it and hook up iCloud Drive. I don’t want to pay for a translator that used to be free. Please remove the subscription. This made my life so much easier and now I can’t use it anymore.
Incredible app 5/5
فارسی persian, Farsi 5/5

Easy to use! 5/5
By Cool Spicy bean
I’m not one to write reviews but I couldn’t help being dumbfounded by the accuracy of this app! It’s simple and straight to the point.
Translator French book to English 5/5
This app works terrific to translate a French book to English and it may help me learn faster in another language.
Great app 5/5
This is such amazing
It’s great! 4/5
It is an amazing app!! It helps me with a lot! One thing though. When I was out of scans, it says I can watch ads and get more. But every time I try, it says there are no ads. Please fix that.
No Thai translations 1/5
Despite the overview claiming "over 70 languages!", in fact there's only about 30. And no Thai, the one language I need. Deleted.
Will not translate 1/5
It saves my picture of Portuguese text, then translates it to...Portuguese. It simply shows the original Portuguese text in condensed form. Yes, I have set it to translate to English, and I have tried it 8 different ways, then retried it each way. I have wasted far too much time trying to make this work.
It’s doesn’t work as told any marking on a paper u translate could cause that mark to make a entirely different word do not try this app
Great for homework 5/5
Used this last years in my Spanish class, thanks!
app does not work 1/5
App is garbage. Only works on english. i downloaded it to translate a paragraph into english to figure out what language it was, and it wouldn’t even find the text. it would only find the english portion.
Best translation App out there! 5/5
I was translating an article from a modern German rock music magazine. German and English slang mixed together. Tried five apps for help. Only Scan&Translate did everything I needed. (Only it still took a human brain to figure out that those two lonely words “sicherlich nicht“ at the end of a very long German sentence completely changed the meaning of the sentence!

Chinese lacking 1/5
Does not work whatsoever to recognize Chinese characters
This is FLIPPIN AMAZING 5/5
By A DEEPLY COMCERNED STUDENT
I downloaded this so I could multi task. I could take a picture of the page I needed to read for homework while I did other homework on my laptop!! I love it! Amazing technology
I’m happy! Translated Chinese to English 5/5
I bought a Bluetooth speaker, and the instructions were in Chinese. I would have saved a few minutes if I’d noticed the instructions were in the App Store Description but I figured it out. Instructions should be posted in app; if there, I didn’t see it.
(After this initial review, I noticed that there are instructions under Help Section within App (duh!). These instructions are different than instructions in App Description. I recommend you read both).
At first, I stupidly took a picture of two pages together so the app translated across the columns as one line. Once I figured that out, it didn’t take much effort to understand. Not absolutely perfect, but there were 3 options for Chinese. And the one I chose translated about 95% correct. Pretty decent! I used the share option to copy; then, I pasted in Note app.
Also, I noticed that the instructions said that the translation was automatic. I actually had to press a button (arrows in circle direction) before it translated. Again, figuring out how to use was pretty quick.
You can’t expect perfection with translation. I’m very impressed with this app! And it stores the pictures you take. Also, when translated, the source is at the top and the result is at the bottom. When copy/paste to Notes, it copies both languages. This was very helpful when reviewing the results. I made minor edits such as organizing into paragraphs, etc. I needed the Chinese language to make sure I was formatting correctly.
Nope I didn’t 1/5
Sorry I didn’t like It. It’s always missing words after scanning
Speak English please 1/5
Isn’t there a language setting for “American English”...???
Text not found 1/5
Please try to scan the document once more
DOESN’T WORK!!!! 1/5
I took a picture of what I wanted translated and it didn’t do anything. There is nothing you can even click on to start translating. Waste of time!!!!
DID NOT EXPLAIN WELL 1/5
Me and my friend tried to use this to translate something from Japanese to English, DIDNT WORK AT ALL!! there were NO directions on how to use this app! Instant delete
I do not like that after 5 tries of using the app you have to wait a long period of time to continue using it
Waste of time 1/5
Did not help at all with Korean! Waste of time.
Absolutely love it when translating news and book 5/5

Helps one get informed, when there is a language boundary in the way.

Works like a charm. “There’s an app for that”
Great app 5/5
By Princess SW
Grabbed a free booklet on the way out of my favorite shop in France totally oblivious to the fact that it was written in French instead of English! Whoops! This app was amazingly helpful. The grammar was fantastically accurate which I know is a problem for some apps and I used it to translate the entire book with no problems! Super nice and quick too!
