Really useful for learning a new language
A Russian lady and myself have been having conversations every evening just using this app. We’re building a really good friendship and neither of us yet speak each other’s languages ! It’s brilliant. Thank you Google !!! You are fast taking over from Apple as my favourite tech company !
My only suggestion is: It would be great if it automatically did a reverse translation back to English so you can see how bullet proof the translation was. Currently I have to copy, then switch to Russian, then paste the Russian to see the reverse translation. If it did it automatically and perhaps highlight areas that didn’t translate exactly the same, that would be super helpful and make my replies so much quicker :-)
A lot of times it doesn’t phrase things exactly how I want to say something, and I have to write ‘over explaining English’ to make sure the correct meaning gets translated. One missing word in the translation can completely change the meaning. Sometimes something like ‘should’ becomes ‘must’ in Russian, which sounds a bit too demanding.
The speech recognition is astoundingly quick and very good for practising pronunciation. I reported a bug here last week where the microphone stops working when you briefly switch to another app and then back again, and Google has already fixed it !!!
The easiest 5 stars ever !!!

Greeting of peace and prosperity
Above all, we would like to extend our sincere greetings for the “Google Translate Community”. we would like to request our language to be in your site and app., as you see Kurdish-Sorani does not exist in the list of Google Translate, the language is spoken in Northern Iraq Kurdistan Region officially , and at the same time the language is spoken in Iran,, More than 45 million Kurds need the language in the world, and it is spoken and official in northern Iraq /Kurdistan Region, government uses the language in all the departments of governmental offices , the language is used in schools and directorates in Kurdistan Region , so please accept our request , it is very important to students and people, even for government and merchants, teachers, students, and so on . We need Kurdish Sorani on Google translate so that we get rid of having struggles inaccurate translation from other languages.
Thank you, best regards.
Use this app daily for quickly providing the translation for several languages and it’s remarkably good at what it does. You still need to check the output but Translate does really well in all the tongues I use.
I’m not generally a Google fan but this app is a work of genius which saves hours of time and although I know Google tracks and monitors my activity to monetise it — in this instance it’s worth the downside (personally).
My only gripe… No way to toggle between formal and informal case. English doesn’t have these useful subtleties but most languages do (that I know of). I know it’s easier to imagine than implement such a useful feature but it would be absolutely brilliant to skip changing vous to tu, sie to du, chi to ti etc. etc. I can always dream!
