Ever wanted to know what an Australian English female sounds like? With iTranslate you can select between lots of different dialects, choose a male or female voice, and even control the speech rate.

Most translator apps give you only 1 result per translation. However, if you are translating words and phrases there are often different meanings, depending on the context. iTranslate gives you dictionaries for many languages so you can find the exact solution to your problem.

Romanization lets you turn "你好" into "Nǐ hǎo", transforming non-Latin languages into Latin characters. Available for many languages including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Greek, Hindi, Russian, and Thai.

iTranslate is optimized for fast text input. Open the App with a customizable keystroke, get suggestions while you’re typing and quickly switch between languages.

Missing a few bits

This translator has good and bad sides. Good: quick and easy to use, and helpful with vocabulary building. Bad: really clumsy translations of fairly common tings to say. Here’s an example: “Now often do you go swimming?” translates to "¿con qué frecuencia usted nadar?” Bottom line: it’s not good with sentences, only with words and (sometimes) phrases. Disappointing.

Used to work for me

Ever since upgrading my macos to mojave (Apple iMac 21.5) when I go to use the app it will take the info I put in and then gets caught up in a causality loop of some kind. It never does come out of it. Had to dump the app sadly. Before it worked great for translating short messages from friends in other countries.

Not worth paying $ for

Free services like Google Translate will give you better results.
This just uses Microsoft’s translation service, WHICH IS ALREADY FREE!!!
Basically, you’re paying for a wrapper on someone else’s free service.

It’s not worth paying for a worse translator, that will often misunderstand you, and give you results that won’t make sense to native speakers.
Don’t waste your money, like I did.
This often gave me the wrong translation, and eventually I stopped using it. All the development went towards subcription-only features in their iOS app, and thus it never improved over the time that I’ve owned it.

Developer Response ,

Greetings, We are sorry you are unhappy but this is simply not true. The app is not a
"a wrapper on someone else’s free service." If you have a result you are unsure of please forward a screenshot with both the source text and the result. You can contact us directly for assistance with this: -iTranslate Team
