Ratings and Reviews
Opened my Spanish-English dictionary, it couldn't pinpoint one single Spanish word. And as for English words, it could barely recognize those either. It tries to pick up punctuation marks more than it does actual words. Also my pictures are bright and clear, and the languages are set correctly and it still would not work at all.
Works very well
I tried it to translate from English to Arabic..for me it works great and I'm happy with the results...smart idea..keep going Babylon Team
Not enough languages
Works great, but please add more languages to translate from, specifically chinese. Everything is from china now and we need to know what it says!!! Please add more languages
