Could use zoom

I primarily use it as an text to speech. Having an offline option for translate is very nice. Unfortunately text size can be a little size. Also the audio quality isn't as good as through bing translate. Wouldn't mind downloading a larger language pack.

Almost useless

It is almost useless as it does not offer alternative translations. Words have different meanings that can be very different and change the whole meaning of the sentence... No offline dictionary for my language (Czech)

Excellent app

Camera translation is not up to the mark, otherwise I found no issues in daily use. Excellent app when you are trying to learn new language. Mike option is my favorite.

Bad Translations

German to English translation seriously needs work when translating paragraphs. Individual words and simple phrase are fairly decent but anything more than that it is pretty bad.

Room for Improvement

Using camera translate is good and quite sensitive. It should allow photo as well. Once you move, you lose the view and can't continue to read. UI design - button for similar function e.g. speaker, should put on the same side, rather than some time is on the left and some time on the right. don't think it is a good experience. Also please allow more languages to have offline dictionary for download. However, the offline file is not useful at all. We should have a feature to allow using offline vs online mode.

Good app but still need more variety for each translating word, more than one translation I mean. The app's history very useful feature

Works very nicely.

The translations are pretty good, far from perfect, but at a level with all the other sources I've tried. I hope very much development can continue and the translations can continue to improve. One other thing that would be very nice is if you could always view and switch which language is being translated to which, because I'm constantly switching back and forth and once the keyboard comes up, it's easy to forget if you're in the right language and it would be nice to switch after you started typing as well.
