Boomerang leverages Google Translate to provide translations between over 100 languages. Translating isn't always perfect though, and can lead to embarrassment. To help avoid this, Boomerang translates from one language to another and then back again so that you can verify the translation is what you intended. If needed, you can also try adjusting your statement to get a result closer to what you want to say.
Boomerang is helpful for translating and checking text when communicating to a friend who speaks another language. It's also handy when travelling, or can be used just for fun to get some purely comedic results.
Note: As Boomerang uses machine translations available from Google Translate, accuracy cannot always be guaranteed. Additionally, while back-translation hasn't proven to be a 100% reliable method for checking translations, it's still a useful method.

Ratings and Reviews
So clever in its elegant simplicity
When you need to use Google translate, but don’t totally trust it, you need this. Boomerang automates a series of steps I used to do manually all the time. Translate something and then translate it back to English and so you can confirm that the translation didn’t get mangled in the round trip and is reliable. Highly recommend this very useful tool if you look up translations even just once in a while.
Needs a lot of improvement
I was looking for an alternative to google translate. So far looks like no one can beat them. Why would I want to use this app if I have a limited amount of characters I can input, and adds pop up everywhere? If anyone wants o be google then try making an app without adds that’s capable of translating an entire paragraph. Inoltre, non penso sia appropriato che uno sviluppatore di app insulti un consumatore perché si è lamentato del suo prodotto. Apparentemente non è per tutti. Tuttavia, non ho alcun uso e cose migliori da fare con il mio tempo che passare tutto il giorno a passare da un'applicazione all'altra per tradurre la stessa frase 50 milioni di volte.
Thanks for your feedback. Our goal isn't to beat Google. In fact, the translations we provide are powered by Google. Our goal is to provide a convenient way to double-check a Google translation. We do have character limits, but 95% of our customers don't come within 20% of that limit.
Is it me I’m with bad luck
This app is wonderful, the only thing that happen after IOS 11 update, every time I open the app the iTunes massage pop up asking to enter my iTunes password , and the phone freezes and I can’t do any thing after that .
Please if you thing there is a trick to it then I will remove this review and give you guys 5 stars .
Thanks for letting us know! We’re submitting a fix today and it should be resolved by the end of the week.
