It’s a life saver...literally

In Spain & other places we’ve been it’s handy for in restaurants & shopping whilst abroad etc...

But...this year, while staying in Spain our dog ran off & for 3 whole days & nights, while he was missing. We were looking for him. The village where we stayed were helping us & one person put it all on her social media Spanish ...we were out putting up notices...everything helped & the translated played a huge huge part ...who’d have thought it??? We got our beautiful dog back & are all at home. So I rate it a million times great,❤️🐾

So Far The Best

I switched from Google and have been using Microsoft for several months. It is an extremely useful and user friendly app. The translation has been mostly accurate. I love the offline feature. Also the voice translator.
However some work is needed as the voice translator does not always hear correctly and is not available offline.
Also I found translating from English is very good. But when reversing languages, the translation from Turkish to English does not give an accurate translation.

However I give the app 7/10. I should actually get paid, as I have been publicising this app on my travels and on social media. So many of my friends around the world have now downloaded it and regularly use it.

This app had the ability to transform the world! I can't convey how much I am wowed by it. Speech translated into really accurate text, signage translated by taking a simple snap. It's just awesome, in the true sense of the word. Give the people who work on this a pay rise! They are making the world a better place, and helping people to build bridges and forge relationships that would otherwise have been impossible. Magic!
