German translator

I’ve only started using it, but I like the clearer, refreshing format. Some words it still doesn’t know, so it just repeats what I just typed in, instead of using two hyphens, say, to indicate it doesn’t know the translation. So, nice work. Does anyone read these? I left the above message several weeks ago. When I go to enter a word, I always have to kick the keyboard down out of caps. It would be better if it were always lower case! May 9, 2021

Here it is, Sept. 22, 2021! Same situation!

Developer Response ,

Hi Shanghailil,
We have responded to your first review last May. Sorry if the response has been missed.
If a word is not translated in the Translator, you may want to check that you selected the correct lookup direction. Tap on the flags above the text entry field to change directions.
If that doesn't the case, can you please send an email to, so we can further assist you? Please reference this review if you do.
Angelica, Customer Success

Very Quick Reference

The app is very useful on getting a quick answer.

I also find it effective for finding the German name (or English name going the other way) for a specific tree, animal, tool, plant name that is not commonly used, but still useful to know, but hard to determine from a German or an English description alone. The app could use a larger vocabulary for these terms as it expands.

Developer Response ,

Hi Martin,
Glad to hear you find our app useful and effective!
I will inform our product team of your suggestion for consideration in updates.
Thanks for your review!

German is fun...

... but there are so many ways to make mistakes! So this app helps when I am trying to ascertain what verb I am looking for. But often there will be three verb forms in one sentence and I wish I could chain the definitions together so I can understand the contextual meaning. This a great step forward and convenient for quick phrasing. Howzat?

Glad to hear you find our app helpful!
Thanks for taking the time to write a review.
