Quality could be better, but still works wonders!
I use this app to test my Mandarin. There are many times it works well, but I have found that even my Chinese friends will sometimes get really weird translations even when they are pronouncing things right. But this app is still helpful! For example, I was in an airport once and met a couple who only spoke Arabic and was able to use this app to help them find their connecting flight and explain the delays. She couldn’t actually understand the words, but she could read the translation just fine. If we could get some more accurate native speaker translations, that would be great. Other than that, good job!
Super useful, both for translation on the go and learning a new language
I first purchased the app to navigate my way around Brazil without knowing how to speak Portuguese, and it helped me on the fly several times. Now that I'm learning the language, I use it to help me study and to learn new phrases. I like how it allows you to slow down the audio so you can really hear the pronunciation. Highly recommended!
So complicated to use
I downloaded this app before I went to China. It was useless. It was so hard to use it’s very hard to delete phrases, and when asking about wine it translated “when would you like your mail picked up”? The waitress started laughing and when I looked down to the translation I knew why. She had no idea what we were asking. A total waste.
I was trying to use English to Mandarine Chinese. You really need to come up with a way to just be able to swipe left to delete. It is so hard to get rid of a phrase that you’ve used prior. App just isn’t user friendly.
