Wonderful for my unconventional usage
I use this app at least once a day, but that "once" may be for a long time with many searches. I have used it to look up, or to remember a single word or term, but also as a way to help me brush up on my French, Italian, Latin and German.
It is also helping me learn conversational Greek, Mandarin and Japanese. I have just started using it to add to my limited Russian. I love languages, words and word origins, and this app reinforces that.
You just have to write or speak a sentence or phrase in English (or any language that you are fluent in) and have it translate it to any other language - giving you both spelling and pronunciation. I have found that it is a useful tool, not only as a way of communication or quick translation reference, but actually in learning any language that it has a translation for.
It works better than many traditional language software (like Rosetta Stone, which I found not very useful), since you can put in phrases and responses that you are most likely to use. It can be used like an immersive language program, but tailored toward your specifications. As a neurosurgeon, there are things that I need to know that are not in traditional language software, but ARE in this translation app.
I'm 14 years old and love it!!!!
I have always been super interested in Italian and really wanted to find the easiest way to learn it before getting to high school. I've tried TONS of other apps that worked but I just wasn't into them and they didn't appeal to me. I love google translate though! You can type in ANY POSSIBLE word, sentence, phrase, or paragraph and it will tell you the whole thing in German, French, Italian, Polish...really any language!!! I'm in love with it and are learning the language(s) slowly. It will also pronounce it and help you say it. It's also FREE which is super rare for a GOOD translator app. I really didn't wanna pay 9 bucks for a app and I love this! Recommend it for beginners, intermediates, and experts who need a refresher. Awesome app, keep up the great job !!!
I say almost for a reason I'll delve into. First off though, I've used this app since its early days. It's efficient, it's accurate, and the new Live-translation tool is almost mind-boggling. I've never been able to rely on any other app for translation as well as Google Translate. Now the only reason I don't give this one a 5-star rating is because Live-Translate is missing one critical language for a lot of the Internet: Japanese. You can still take a picture of it or type it in and it'll translate, but we can't use Live-Translate to read those texts for Japan-only games and such yet. As soon as this is implemented, the app will gain my full 5-star rating.
