Ever wanted to know what an Australian English female sounds like? With iTranslate you can select between lots of different dialects, choose a male or female voice, and even control the speech rate.

Most translator apps give you only 1 result per translation. However, if you are translating words and phrases there are often different meanings, depending on the context. iTranslate gives you dictionaries for many languages so you can find the exact solution to your problem.

Romanization lets you turn "你好" into "Nǐ hǎo", transforming non-Latin languages into Latin characters. Available for many languages including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Greek, Hindi, Russian, and Thai.

Needs to leave the menubar

I’m a longtime user of this app on my iPhone/iPad and am really glad to have a Mac version, as I do most of my language studying on my computer. It’s always been a solid app with accurate translations, and the ability to have words spoken to you is a nice touch.

Only thing this app needs is for it to be able to not be a menubar app and to run in the dock, as my menubar on my 11” Macbook Air is already pretty crowded. Plus, having it not in the dock is less convenient when switching between open windows (if using, say, Mission Control), and clearly confuses some users when they click the iTranslate app icon in Launchpad and seemingly nothing happens. Having it run as a mini Menubar app should be an option, but not the default to avoid confusion. I’m hoping that this will graduate to a full windowed app very soon so that I can fully use it as I need to.

Superb translations but Yosemite -iMAC has issues

Translations work when typing directly into the source. Pasting an email message in Spanish did not work. Am I missing a menu bar-How To—the Website Support needs an FAQ.
I could not find the Save function. Each translation typed in copied and pasted into another app required deleting the source and target to translate another message.
I must be missing part of the software??? I must say what I do get translated is a comprehensive success.


I had tried several of the other free or cheap translate apps and found numerous errors on some basic words. I like having this app in the menu bar, typically just pop it open when I am doing rosetta stone lessons. I haven’t run across any mistranslations yet and it seems to find the word even if I don’t know the proper stem.
