An interpreter in your pocket.

Back in love with SayHi


My previous review expressed disappointment at the newer version update and I tried other translation apps as a result.
I’ve also kept with SayHi and am back in love with it. The team continue to update and improve the app which is certainly one (if not the!) fastest and most accurate translation tools I have used. Once the ‘Recently used’ or ‘Favourites’ list becomes available I will be VERY happy - this would put an end to scrolling through the alphabet between ‘F’ and ‘S’ for the two most commonly used languages for me. (My sausage fingers get heavy handed with scrolling and I occasionally end up on a language I don’t want...)
Well done, ‘SayHi’, and I’m impressed with the fast friendly response to ‘help’ questions.
(BTW - no, I do not work for SayHi!!)

Developer Response

Sorry to hear you're not enjoying the new version. We understand it is a big change and we are actively listening to feedback and improving the app. There are a lot of new features coming in the future focused on understanding and learning. If you have any other feedback we are here to help. Just email and we'll assist you in any way we can.

Translates without context


Using this to learn Polish as my girlfriend is Polish. Since she speaks and read in Polish fully, she picks up all the mistakes the app makes.

For example, in English you might say 'do you want SOME tea?' But in Polish people don't use 'some' in that context, therefore it translates incorrectly. It just translates words as they are in a dictionary.

It would also be nice if there was a way to save some phrases to use them later. Now you only have one page and you can delete the whole conversation without allowing to delete them one by one. Having separate pages could allow to have specific common phrases saved to access them quickly.
