    Ben H. Regev Published date: October 9, 2017

    The best translation app I have ever used. So many useful features and work very well. Con: Does not distinct between male and female forms in Hebrew. Pros: I am traveling on business in Ukraine not knowing a work in Ukrainian - I buy in shops, get directions and all everyday things I need. Including reading signs, menu and products labels using the camera. AWESOME!!!!!!! Full Review

    I think the app is really helpful. I do travel a bit and find the app really useful. I was reading some of the comments earlier and don't understand people. They get free product which work pretty well but people behave like paid big money for that app and expecting miracles from it. It's free app people, stop complaining Full Review

    Not SoAverage Published date: October 6, 2017

    Not so great. I'm in Japan for two months and don't know enough katakana or kanji to figure out what's what. This app gets so confused over the characters and constantly changes what the text means. I'm sure it's great for other languages, just don't use it for japanese Full Review

    Samsung Galaxy S7 - Not perfect or not working? Even though lots of people contribute in making it's translations better and better(myself included), it still has a very bad translation... And 70% of times, it chooses the worst translation of all the contributing translators. :(((( Can you make it so that we can add(contribute with) better translations in the Android app too. OR MAKE GOOGLE TRANSLATE AN OPEN SOURCE, LIKE WIKIPEDIA. Full Review

    This is definetly the best word for word translation that I have come across. On the grammar side of things, it could be improved a lot. For example, in Russian, it couldn't decide whether to use ты ( or вы ( This could be easily remedied by asking which version you would prefer thus removing the ambiguity in English. Moreover, if, say, I wanted to know the way to say 'the day after tomorrow', zen, it would give it literally, khval mas shemdeg. Full Review

    This is a major disappointment. There's no way to edit errors in the "Phrasebook." The user must delete the entire entry & start again. Frankly, the app doesn't work as well as the version online at the mobile website. Google should be ashamed to have released such an app. Also, the text window is too small. Again, the design makes it almost impossible to edit errors. The online version at mobile website is better. It's time to UNINSTALL! Full Review

    It does what is supposed to do, albeit it's not perfect in its translations and can sometimes be like trying to understand what a toddler is saying. Yet it gets the job done, and that's all I need. I often use it translate Daum if Google translate is too long to translate the entire page this app is a quick substitute for certain parts of a page :) Full Review

    It used to work well, but now it has become crappy.. I've sent so many mails that tap to translation function isn't working and they haven't solved the issue yet... So is this an application by "Google" ??? Full Review

    Юра Щиренко Published date: October 7, 2017

    I really like this app and recognise Google translator as the best mobile translator. But as for me it has one slight minus. In phrasebook tab, I was faced just with two types of sorting words: sort by time and sort alphabetically. I was really regret at that moment because I expected to see sort by theme where I could sort my vocabulary depending on a subject. Full Review

    A very useful app and supports a lot of languages... Translation over voice is a really cool feature, though I didnt get amy situation to use it practically... It can also be used a great dictionary which translates from any language to any language... A must have app for travellers and students... Full Review

    August Younge Published date: October 2, 2017

    This has to be the most hilarious translator out there! A friend used this to send me an email! I am Québecois! He is American! He said hello and I understood a couple other things. No sentance structure so I couldn't understand the message! He said something about doing laundry and taking a walk! But it said something in your French translation about soapy legs and was waiting for them to be dead. Send just 1 sentence from this app and the French immediately know it is google translate! Very very very very very bad app! Full Review

    There is a lot of stupid things should be improved.... I mean come on man we are in 2017 and this translater still cant optimize English words as other apps... Please improve the english language especially the way of understanding and optimizing the words while using the voice property... Surely if the english is so bad here you can imagine how much bad are other languages (when i translate "word to word" its really perfect but the bloody things start when i translate a sentences or starting to use my voice ) Full Review

    It's so pathetic, I was translating a paper from Hindi to English, I had to speak every sentence for 4-5 times, even if I pronounce correct word, it won't listen it. Moreover, sometimes, I utter the entire long sentence but it won't take a single word. It's so frustrating. Full Review

    Eric Baldry Published date: October 13, 2017

    I mean, the realtime translation is an impressive technical feat, but the Japanese to English translation is utter nonsense. Its not even good enough to let me guess what is written, and the translated words keep changing so I can't even figure out what the app is trying to tell me. Great idea, really poor implementation.

    I loved this app very much. This app is very amazing as well as useful. But my only request is to add 'malayalam' pronounciation and offline malayalam searching. Pls. I hope u will add my request in the next update. If u can't add 'malayalam pronounciation' then pls add offline malayalam searching. Not only this app but all the google apps are very very very amazing as well as useful. Thank you. Full Review

    Pilar Heslin Published date: October 3, 2017

    When translating speech, it tries to find English words that sound like what you are saying, instead of finding words in the language it's actually supposed to be translating. Very frustrating and useless Full Review

    Published date: October 4, 2017

    Excellent app, feels like living in the future. Works almost flawlessly. Accuracy depends on language though ! Japanese to English translation works almost perfect even for oximoron words like " Kajoku no Kaizoku" " Onna no Wana" . As for Bengali/Hindi to English translation works at a relatively slower processing speed. While translating Arabic to English, some words are not picked properly, but translating works fast everyday conversational sentences and Quranic verses. Good luck with Gorgean language, Google !
