Very good app, only if...
This is a very good app! But only if you're somewhat fluent in the language you're translating to/from.
Everyone knows to not rely on Google translate when wanting to translate a set phrase, etc. and it's still true in this case! I'm about 40% fluent in Japanese, and I'm learning Japanese intensively, so I rely on this app a lot for when I'm studying or am speaking Japanese to my Japanese friends/host family/etc. From English to Japanese, I can understand a lot of the translated Japanese... but it's a bit strange (translating from Japanese is the same, but English is my first language so I mostly understand).
Luckily, I am fluent enough in Japanese to be able to change it a little to make it sound more normal. Not so easy for those who aren't very fluent in the language they're translating too!
Otherwise, this app is very useful for those somewhat fluent in a language. I use it in conjunction with my other Japanese apps and it's very helpful as a starting point or even a double checker! 🤗
Very clever and useful app
The title says it all. I am finding this app more and more useful not only during my travels but day to day. Did you ever get a bunch of packages from china with chinese writing all over them and not sure which is which? Perfect:-)
Dud update for Google translate
After updating Google translate a few days ago it will not open. It has frozen and shows the title "waiting" under the icon on my screen. It worked perfectly prior to the update. I cannot delete it to reload as it will not respond to the delete. It simply is frozen and this is all due to the update. Fix it or give me my money back please.
