Translator I love it!

This is one of the greatest Apps to ever use for language barriers. It has helped me out so many times. I love the ease of it. Hearing the spoken language and being able copy the text is so easy! I can reverse the English and the foreign language with one click. I love that I can take it with me anywhere I go in my travels! Thank you so much for making it available at no cost! I refer people to the app all the time! 👍💜😎

Suggestions to the developer to make the app more responsive

If I type in or dictate something and then I discover that language A —-> language B setting is actually inverted and I then make it language B —-> language B then it wipes out what I have already typed in and I need to type anew
Please fix it to not wipe out what’s already typed in even if I change direction settings between any two given languages

Second suggestion
Provide a way to purposely wipe out what’s already typed in - to start anew
For example it could be a little x in a little circle on the right of the writing area
Right now one must press backspace continuuously and that takes time when one wishes to input a new word or phrase

Third suggestion
Invert the order of the work pad where the inputs and outputs appear
Have the newest output translation appear on the bottom of the scroll rather than on the top
Such that the input and output could be seen in a single screen rather than having to scroll up to see the translation which is annoying and slow when some precious translations are still there

All these friendly suggestions are in the spirit of the fastest and most efficient usage of the app in real time
Developers: please take them seriously if you wish for a better product

This is based on my recent trip to Italy in which I used the app repeatedly

So far this app does not translate Ukrainian to English well

I was planning a trip to the Ukraine and I purchased the Pimsleur Ukrainian audiobook course and now I am currently in Kiev Ukraine. I downloaded this app to help me communicate with the native speakers here. I figured that I could utilize the things that I learned in the Pimsleur course in addition to using this app to help me communicate. Unfortunately when I spoke a few simple phrases this translator did not translate the words properly from Ukrainian to English for example the word Українською which is supposed to be Ukrainian in English was pronounced English in English. Not a Good Start! Another example “Я розумію українською не дуже добре” is translated in to English as “I understand English is not very good” which should say “I speak Ukrainian not very well” or “I don’t speak Ukrainian very well”. I sent them my feedback and we will see if they respond in a timely manner. In the meantime I will keep giving them a chance but right now my confidence is very low.
