Needs optimization

This app is great. A number of languages it contains, translated words history, photo translation etc. But with each update app’s work only gets worse. It constantly freezes and lags. For instance, when I type text suddenly everything stops for a few seconds. Then I press “Go” (to do translation) and the app lags again. Please, fix these issues.

Problem with photo translation

There is a couple of problems with Ukrainian text recognition when the photos are taken which has to be fixed. This application does not recognize such Ukrainian alphabet letters as «є», «ї» and «ґ» anymore and also puts spaces before commas. There were no such issues before the streak of recent major interface redesign and improvement updates. It seems that this app uses algorithms for Russian language instead of Ukrainian because there are no such letters in Russian, even if the alphabets are pretty similar. Recognition of other languages such as Russian, English, German, Japanese works fine (tested). I don’t believe that so huge company like Google does not have testers who MUST try out the application before the each update arrives to find bugs that can greatly influence the app’s performance in a horrible way and who actually get paid for this. What a shame!

Children know better

Come on Google employee people from every country your service provides translation for and listen to customer feedback note the old fashioned approach do this report error with correcting!

In few countries example how are you can be said in different ways especially in Ukrainian and Russian which isn’t great also another problem adds unnecessary words which can change whole sentence to a different meaning which can be offensive to some! Another thing what is it with comas in wrong places or sometimes not needed?

Even on simple translation from Europe 9 out of 10 times gets something wrong when written or spoken strangely you speak sentence in foreign language translates perfect most of the time to English.

This is a valuable tool for communication would say learning but it can’t always say properly, and it’s very frustrating when people laugh when using google translate because they know will say wrong things. You really need to test well before releasing updates and honestly your language packs for offline really need good fresh updates to correct the problems 1 good example people mention in feedback problems with Ukrainian language when are you going to address all these wonderful problems?
