Amazing app

The app is amazing I could use it for hours just for fun. One thing that would be nice is if you made a app kinda like google board or Gboard so you don’t have to keep going back and fourth to type or figure out what something means and you just copy and paste it into the thing. It would be nice to have. But overall I compared it to google translate and google translate sometimes calls pizza a burrito for some reason then other times it works correctly and says pizza. This tho is amazing translater I don’t know how I never saw this because how accurate it is

Thank you for your feedback! Try downloading our Yandex.Keyboard. It has a built-in translator. Maybe it will be convenient for you.

The best translator for Russian by far

Yandex offers more information for translations than Google Translate, and the translations feel like they are more accurate. As a polyglot I use both yandex translate and google for different languages, but when it comes to Russian yandex is the most reliable, both for the literal entries and the sound clips. The UI is ergonomic, allowing you to quickly clear the screen and enter another word for translation or swipe to previous queries. If you’re a student of Russian, Yandex is a must.

It is pleasure to know that Yandex.Translate was useful for you.
We're glad that you liked everything!

Better than google

Moving to Yandex after reaching out the limit of saved words in the mobile version of Google translator. Another annoying thing with Google translate was lack of synchronization between web and mobile versions.

Although, there is always room for improvements! Personally, I’d appreciate adding verb conjugation, especially for exceptions.

Hello! Thank you for high mark and for the suggestion! I'll forward your message to the manager and developers of the service.
