Ratings and Reviews

Does not translate at all

Tagni 2

Really disappointed. I was hoping to get a basic translator and it didn’t work at all; not for Chinese, Arabic or French. They need to fix it or take it down.

Needs a lot of work

Plumpcrazy

Was not able to translate even simple English into French. Needs a lot of work. I wasted three dollars on this.

Not Good

Didn't recognize more than half of the words.
