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.

C’est parfait !

i use this application to translate french and anybody that has used other translators knows that french translators are hard to find. this application is perfect. i have used this app to translate professionally and informally. this translator has never given me an incorrect translation. it even corrects your phrase and helps translate. shows you what you said, what it translates to in french and then it translate what it translates to in french. definitely recommend this to anyone that can not find a proper translator. i use this app at least once a day.

So clever in its elegant simplicity

When you need to use Google translate, but don’t totally trust it, you need this. Boomerang automates a series of steps I used to do manually all the time. Translate something and then translate it back to English and so you can confirm that the translation didn’t get mangled in the round trip and is reliable. Highly recommend this very useful tool if you look up translations even just once in a while.

Seems really good.

The translations seem very good. As someone learning the language, it would be very helpful if you also provided pinyin like Google Translates does.
