Boomerang leverages Google Translate to provide translations between over 100 languages. Translating isn't always perfect though, and can lead to embarrassment. To help avoid this, Boomerang translates from one language to another and then back again so that you can verify the translation is what you intended. If needed, you can also try adjusting your statement to get a result closer to what you want to say.

Boomerang is helpful for translating and checking text when communicating to a friend who speaks another language. It's also handy when travelling, or can be used just for fun to get some purely comedic results.

Note: As Boomerang uses machine translations available from Google Translate, accuracy cannot always be guaranteed. Additionally, while back-translation hasn't proven to be a 100% reliable method for checking translations, it's still a useful method.

Kan niet meer zonder.

Deze app heeft me al vaak behoed om geen domme dingen te zeggen in een andere taal. Super concept en prima uitgevoerd.

Missing button

Thank you for your fast response & update! For me personally it's a huge improvement the app now has a switch button and that the app rotates on iPad so it can be used in both portrait and landscape mode. The translating works fine for single words. The "translating back" is not much contributing, in my opinion.

Hello. Single-tap swapping of languages might come in handy, although the automatic back-translation removes many of the cases where a swap is used. I’ll work on adding it in a future update though. Apple lists all iPhone apps as iPad compatible. Unfortunately, developers have no control over that. That said, an iPad-optimized version is in the works. In the meantime, I thought it best to offer this to iPhone users, which are the vast majority of iOS users (over 85%).
