Ratings and Reviews
I use this app probably daily since it’s release since I work with multiple language speakers and need to check things often.
Since a few updates ago, the Image Translation function seems to have a bug. Every time I open it, it resets to “Detect Language” even if I already had one selected.
Maybe it’s an intentional feature, but if so it’s just annoying and time-consuming to select the language every single time.
Having it reset to Detect Language also means it takes more and more time to analyze an image, much more time than it would if my selected language for typing were automatically selected for images like before.
Please either A) change the settings to allow me to have it default to Detect Language or my selected languages; or, B) Have it default to whatever language is selected again like it was before.
I’d give the app 5 stars if this feature weren’t creating a big hassle for me in literally a daily basis.
The best/most accurate translation app that I’ve used but I was wondering if there’s a way to get it to translate words into the Korean word instead of the English? I’m not sure how to explain it in the proper turn but take for example the word maroon. To my understanding, the word 자갈색 can mean maroon, brownish red, or russet but instead of giving me this word the app will just give me 마른 which is the cognate for maroon. Or if this isn’t an accurate example, here’s another.
The word song is 노래 but instead of giving me that word the app might give me 송 which also sounds exactly like it looks instead of giving me the other translation. I’m bad at explaining especially since I’m not sure if my examples are accurate but I think my point came across. If there’s a way to stop getting cognates as translations then please let me know.
This is perfect. No need to update.
I love everything about this app and will continue to use it until my phone breaks down. I love everything about this app. From the fact that it is basically free and can use anything you want to translate. I usually see people restricting areas of an app until paid, which is the lost in frustrating thing. Normally I download an app that I need for one specific purpose. But when I see that option it costs BIG. When I use this app, I get what I need Easily
and freely. I will continue to use apps from this creater.
