It does not work

I installed it becuase i am going on a trip and thought this would be helpful but i open it and its blank! i type and nothing happens....

it does not work, google translate is way better and EASY

I try and try and follow exactly what I am supposed to do.
So frustrating. I hate it.

Not quite ready

The translator has difficulties identifying the language source.
It seems to do only literal translation just imagine the following phrases through the words themselves

His demonstration speaks volume. (Did demonstration had a synthesized loud voice ?)
In other hand, he had many ideas. (How can you have ideas in your other hand ?)

Too simple to be useful for business use.
It woud need a dictionnary of idiom to work.

Good try
