Do NOT get the FREE TRIAL! SCAM. Will charge you regardless.
I ordered this app for the free trial to see how well it worked. I found a cellphone on the ground at the park and wanted to give it back to the owner but couldn't because it was all in Spanish, so I thought the translate from an image would help if I took pictures of the screen. It didn't work well at all, but that was fine... Not the part that makes them a scam. This is... I cancelled the app’s subscription immediately and it said canceled and that it would expire today, October 12th. Job should have been done, however I WAS STILL CHARGED the monthly fee. Since I went through and had canceled or already there was also no way to seem from getting charged in the future because the option to ”Cancel Subscription” on my phone had already disappeared because I had hit that button already. The only option was to ”restore the purchase.” I went through apples awful customer service web chat service and gave them all the information and order number, my info, etc and after the 10 minutes it took for her to grasp what I was saying and what I was asking for the app to definitely be canceled (again) AND a refund she said she would help me and then she never came back I waited 20 more minutes but she never did and said there was a ”connection issue.” SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT. WILL NEVER USE THIS PRODUCT AND WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND IT.
LOVED this app initially & would have paid for it, BUT...
Initially this app would have gotten 5 stars. It beat google translate and a tu ally did a decent job translating English to German & vise versa; especially for a free app. But of late the app consistently crashes immediately after is finishes the cycle of translation; and before I have time to even verify it’s accuracy so not sure if it’s still as correct as it used to be I read in a some reviews that it isn’t anymore; i.e. Korean for example, but I wouldn’t know since it keeps crashing. Wrote to Support and will see what happens. Also asked me to upgrade which I strongly considered but not with some of the small print in permissions. Beware that it requires access to any past translations as well & beware that anything you type it paste into it to translate will be accessed by this app; so you might wish to leave out financial or sensitive Information, etc.; like if you’re translating a contract. Also, the premium (paid) version price tag seems rather steep to a lot of the reviewers here as well as to me the way it is organized now. I’d say it’s a bit of “carrot” app; “Lookie what I got here! Okay now come and get it!” ...Once you start chasing it, it eludes you. ... If they make improvements and adjustments, I’ll alter my review, but for I’ll say, sadly, I’d pass!
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.
I can’t even 🤦🏾♀️🤯
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.
100% positive feedback!
Wow. I have yet to try all of the features. It isn’t that the features are not beneficial... I am currently working to increase screen time (yes, increase). I didn’t like translation apps because of the undesired results. I guess this would be something I’ll just state vaguely because I’d rather be doing something else but I encourage anyone interested in translation apps to try this one and buy the pro in-app version. That will make all of the apps in the bundle available with pro features. The user interface is simple, elegant and easy to use. The experience started out being very satisfied and continues to fuel the thirst for knowledge and provide the perfect amount of pleasure to be very ally with the product and want even more. I just found more so I’m going back in to nerdify my life. More is more.
Used to be a great Application...
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.
I would like to start this review by saying that the idea is really great. I would totally subscribe for the verb conjugations and the layout is very clean. However I noticed another review noting that the Korean translations are incorrect, something I also noticed when using the app. 갈게 does not translate to “LL” at all. 徒然 didn’t even have a translation and was just romanized in English to “Tozenn” which is an incorrect romanization... Although I do see the option to input correct translations if they are wrong and I am not a developer, I feel that if you are trying to get people to use this as a translating app, you might want to hold off on some languages until they are fully developed and correct. As for the people who are saying iTranslate “automatically charges” and that the developer is accusing users of lying, I understand where you come from. But most apps do the same thing, advertising a free trial. They will charge you after the free trial, which I think is wrong and should be verified with the user before they assume you bought the PRO version, but you can always say you do not want to start a free trial. It’s a good idea to read everything before you just click next.
Never got to use it
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
The app is of great value and allows for practice for those who put in the time reading, saying, and listening. I like having access to the phrasebook necessity of languages. Traveling, class, and communicating personably or professional with this app is a plus. In writing this it was now time to pay monthly again, not having realizing 30 days had past. I had not used the app yet, but tested to see if it updated. The price it worth it depending upon usage. I did think 4.99 per month was pricey. Again usage determines the price. For me, based upon my usage I may subscribe periodically throughout the year, realizing the initial update fee was not for the entirety or year. The app is a “diamond in the rough”, when you are somewhere needing to access the necessities within the ventures of travel.
Started to Download it
I was going to download this app bc we were spending a month in Europe, but after reading the reviews, Didn’t download. The reason wasn’t mainly bc so many people were unhappy about too many & too loud of ads (altho that was a small part of he reason). The main reason was the defensive, rude responses the people who gave reviews got from the developers! I am appalled that they would be called liars. Developers: Why on earth do you think so many people would say the same thing? Why do you think they would make that up? Do you think you are endearing yourselves to customers (where you get your $ from) by being so caustic? I will tell you I believe your customers, not you. And so will virtually every body else. And I also noticed that absolutely nothing is a glitch in YOUR program. It’s all the customer’s problem., or someone else’s ‘fault.’ Wow! Smart enough to create (what could be) a cool app, but too immature to know how to handle customer service courteously. Old saying: “You can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar.”
pretty solid translator...but could use some tweaking
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.
We used this app all over southwestern France which is way more rural and has fewer people that speak English! we were able to travel on our own without a tour service or a tour guide. we didn’t have too many barriers language wise. The few times we had an issue was pronunciation. Those times we were in a situation where we could not play the audible of what one of us was trying to say. For that $4.99 per month charge for verbal translation and being able to take a photo of something to translate, it would really be nice if there was a phonetic pronunciation included. I grew up speaking Spanish and tended to lapse into a Spanish pronunciation to an unfamiliar French word when I could not hear it or see how to pronounce it!
Used to love it Now ads are ruining it.
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.
‘TRY 7 DAYS’ ‘TRY 7 DAYS’ ‘TRY 7 DAYS’
Since I keep getting spammed to try out your 7-days trial every time I open the app I will do just that. But if your paid options aren’t better than free apps and you keep prompting me to upgrade after the trial is over, I will be done. I understand you’re making your money selling subscriptions, but the service you offer is just not worth paying every month for; especially with Google Translate around. And as a ‘basic’ user what I care about when launching iTranslate is a quick access to the main tool. Unfortunately your welcome page prompting me to go pro is always in the way; unlike your dismiss button that is hidden away from reach. [Update on original review] The trial is over, and I still receive the ‘Try 7 days’ screen on app startup... so no way of turning that screen off. I’m deleting your app. And thanks for the condescending developer response, but had you actually cared you would have realized that my main issue wasn’t my understanding of what ‘PRO’ features are. But rather the fact that I get prompted to ‘try 7 days’ every time I decide to use your app! And cherry on top, the dismiss icon is a tiny little x located in the most unreachable spot of the screen, that is barely even visible so it’s transparency is high. Either you don’t know what you’re doing, or you know precisely what you’re doing... and I don’t take you for fools. Shame on you!
Not too accurate...
I may not be fluent in too many languages, though I do know enough to get through small talk. It seems pretty difficult to find a good online translator that can actually distinguish the usage of nouns and conjugations in actual conversation or even just sentence usage. These apps need to reprogrammed by those who are fluent in these languages to properly give those of us still learning a better understanding of how to say what we wish to say. I tested some things I know in languages such as German, Gaelic, Italian, and even Latin to see just how accurate this and other apps are and so far they are to quite a degree incorrect. These apps seem too focused on a literal dictionary translation instead of how the words are actually formed together in a true spoken sentence. I’d like to be able to better use this app to translate phrases and conversation I don’t yet know so hopefully sometime soon the administration of this app catch on to the lack of real life accuracy and fix this.
