Ratings and Reviews
Translates well for the most part, but some issues.
I’m not going to give a detailed review. The translator works pretty well for the languages I use. But some things it resolutely does not want to learn to improve and I’m not sure why. But I can’t go into that. I just want to ask about the continual problem with “Can’t add to history. Try again later.” Everything works fine with a new installation of the app, for a few weeks. Then these error messages start coming in with every translation. It’s super annoying because it’s a pop up that keeps you from doing what you thought you were doing, like copying the translation. So you go back into WhatsApp, say, to paste in the translated response, and instead you’re pasting in something you had previously copied, because your attempted copy didn’t take, because it was too busy telling you that it couldn’t add to your history for some unknown reason. It’s all so exhausting to describe, let alone to use. Just fix it, guys. All these things that just don’t work right are sapping our life blood away. Time waits for no one. Please fix.
Love app and deleted from all devices
On my iPhone I was Translating a conversation with friends while at an outside restaurant. . In the middle of my conversation, a hacker sent me a message to the translate screen with specific names of people I know. My friends at the restaurant did not know the names of the people referenced in the message in the google translate screen. It was no friendly prank. I use a VPN and I use no social media. I was using a cellular card and not public Wi-Fi. How does google translate allow a third party into their application? It is a dangerous flaw in the software. The message attempted to have me google a combination of words that would have likely lead me to a site loaded with viruses in an attempt to steal passwords, but I deleted the app from my iPhone and did not do as the malicious message suggested. I would have sent this directly to google translate programmers, but I gave up on contacting them directly after unsuccessfully searching a contact means.
I really enjoy the google translate application. I live outside of USA and it is a great assistant in understanding my friends who speak a language that I do not speak. I will use the app again if it is patched and safe to use.
Accessibility for Instructional Design
Google Translate is now a form of augmented reality and is adapted for educational purposes. This application provides users with tools to translate between languages and they now include an image option; users take a photograph of a sign, piece of paper, or other form of written text and receive a translation in the language of their choice. This augmented reality is ground breaking because this allows online learners to access content in other languages. The application also translates spoken word in real time, which allows all learners to access audio in written form, in their own language, online or in-person.
This version of augmented reality that is adapted for education can be utilized in an online learning environment and can be utilized by instructional designers. One of the major challenges with instructional design is selecting the correct tools to build learning experiences. With this application, instructional designers are able to create a course in their own language and can make their lesson accessible to learners by recommending Google Translate for accessibility. I plan to utilize this in conjunction with my online lessons and videos in order to reach more students with diverse abilities and primary languages.
