Ratings and Reviews
Pretty Good, just avoid complex sentences
Story: my first language is English and I’m only conversational in Cantonese with probably an American accent. When I spoke in English, the Cantonese output was accurate. However when I spoke in Cantonese, the English output wasn’t always accurate. So 1) I think that revealed my accent is stronger than I knew, and 2) this app is very reliant on perfect tone, diction and pronunciation for something to be translated properly. Every time I said “water” in Cantonese (水), it would translate to “die” in English, very likely because the words “water” and “die” in Cantonese sound similar, if tone is not used properly. However my dad, a fluent Cantonese speaker, never had this issue.
A user may have to be specific and simple to convey the proper message. For example, saying “I want to order food to go” outputs a oddly formatted sentence in Cantonese. I fixed it by saying “I want to order takeout”, but even then sometimes the app heard me say “I want to order take out” which translated “take” and “out” as two different strings.
Overall though, I think I can use this app in causal exchanges like asking for directions or small talk, and am happy with it as It will help me with the Spanish workers I work with , or when I travel to China next summer. But it’s not something to rely on for more complex conversation . Still impressed though. Again make sure you pronounce everything clearly!
Translations Not Accurate & Not Free
I am bilingual (English and Spanish)...so you are probably wondering why I downloaded the app. I downloaded it so that it could translate back and forth between English and German because my boyfriend is German and his parents and some of his friends don’t speak English. My German is also very limited so that doesn’t help either. I wanted to test out the app by speaking Spanish to see if the app would translate right into English and vise versa and I was shocked by if 2 of the most spoken languages in the world (aside from Chinese) aren’t translated well then I can’t trust it to translate between my English and German well, especially if it is a more complex language. I already deleted the app. I hope they make major improvements or make it free. I will have to stick to learning the language better on a different app I use and keep using the free translations apps (I am not going to pay $5 a month on this app if it doesn’t work well). If it was free then I’d consider it because it is just as bad as the free ones. Good luck developers (hire some more linguists). Oh and if anyone says this app works well, it is because they are not fluent and don’t know any better. Again, please hire linguists and learn conversational pieces to the languages (includes slang and you must hire linguists that were born and raised with the 2 languages you are trying to translate between to get it right).
Developer Response ,
Greetings, We are sorry you are unhappy but the subscription is only for PRO, an upgrade for the app. The normal app is free. Additionally you where having issues with voice recognition. If you are not understood well by the app you will not be able to get a successful translation. Some people may find it necessary to change there cadence or diction when using voice recognition. It is still a machine so speaking clearly will dramatically improve results. If you need any further assistance you can contact us directly as well: email@example.com -iTranslate Team
Careful!!! Tricks you into a subscription
I don’t know if this is the new App Store System or the idea of the Developers. The App tricks you into a subscription just for downloading the App. If you’re not careful, you will be subscribed without any additional warnings. I noticed and immediately cancelled it.
These practices should be stopped as everyone is entitled to transparency and understanding when he/she is subscribing to a service.
Sorry for not rating the App itself but after this first impression I have lost trust and haven’t even tried it.
I now also received a response from the developer, saying that I don’t understand “how it works” and did not read the terms properly.
I will leave it up to the reader to judge if users are supposed to read all terms and fine print for every downloaded app or if it is the developers job to ensure transparency (as 99% of developers already do) around when a user is charged or not.
I am sure that the developer will continue to dig his heels and try to convince people that their payment terms as like anyone else. They are not. I have many apps and all the paid ones are very clear when it comes to request a payment. This app only uses a small Apple alert that can be easily missed. They know that and many buyers know that as well as you can see from the comment.
My advice to the developer: when you’re in a hole, stop digging. Focus on fixing issues rather than on justifying your practices.

Greetings, We are sorry this is not what you wanted to do but neither we nor apple attempt to make this process complicated. We state this information in our store listing and in the app, Apple states it again requiring your further confirmation to purchase it. -iTranslate Team
