Ratings and Reviews
Best translator, private too!
UPDATED! DeepL (Pro), how I love thee, let me count the ways: This is my favorite translator, with more accurate word definitions than I’ve found elsewhere (proven in my language classes, translating scores of documents I submitted for my residency permit, and for communication with my non-English speaking family), including suggested variations on word and phrase translations. The addition of features found in the other big translator—scanned live translation, photos, documents—means I can FINALLY delete that other app, much to my delight! If you use the online/desktop versions of this app, DeepL also has an editable and recallable glossary, and for those with a Pro account: formal and informal translation options (such as found in languages like German). You can even click on a word or phrase in the translation to trigger a pop up of suggested edits. Another bonus: the makers have designed this app with privacy in mind, collecting no personally identifying data. And one more thing: the big-name translator uses almost four times as much memory as this app. Thank you DeepL team!
This is my personal opinion on this app. In general, I think it’s great, and I would rate it five stars… apart from the fact that there are limited languages. Of course, that’s not the biggest deal, but that’s just what I believe. For example, Korean isn’t available (as stated by a few other reviews I’ve seen), so I commonly use translators that aren’t as accurate, and unequivocally they barely make sense with translations. Another conflict I have with limited languages is the image translator, since occasionally I need to translate photos — I was sad to see the language I needed was not available, and once again had to resort to inadequate translators. (Which thought some languages were other languages…) Other than that, the app is great and I love it! :)
Edit: Okay, I have seen the new update and they added more languages! My points about this being a great app still stand and I would recommend this to anyone who needs a reliable translator.

I’ve been speaking Japanese for eight years, and NO app (looking at you, Google Translate) has mastered idiomatic and colloquial translation like this one. Considering its often uncanny accuracy between English and Japanese, I can only imagine how well it performs for closer languages.
I do have one suggestion for user-friendliness (specific to Japanese): Add furigana to the kanji and/or a romanized rendering of the translation. This is a perfect app for an intermediate/advanced Japanese speaker, but given what I’ve experienced even with my proficiency, it must alienate beginners entirely. If you don’t know kanji, and there is no furigana or romaji to supplement, then the translation is literally unreadable.
