Customer Reviews

  • An amazing application!

    by Lucky Fat Soul

    Extremely easy to use. You can speak into your phone and hear the spoken translation as well as view it. You can type and get translations as well. This is one of those things that make our current times and technology so wondrous to be a part of.

  • ITranslate

    by Rugby Rat

    Very effective

  • I like it.

    by iayhs

    Please, add Zhuyin, phonetic symbols, for Chinese, from Taiwan, and mainland China. Also, please, add a zoom feature. Thank you. Also, please, add an option, to not show, the phonetics. Thank you.

  • Voice recognition

    by Prothos50

    Remarkable Easy and accurate

  • WOW!

    by skeeboman

    I've tried out this app on every foreign language speaking person I know and they all say it it impressively accurate. I've traveled extensively all my life and have always dreamed of something like this. Truly a world shrinking app. If you speak intelligently it will give you 90%+ accuracy.

  • Mediocre at best.

    by Chcchcboom

    It's a good app, but the voice recognition for Spain and Mexico is pretty horrible. Please improve the voice recognition tremendously and update for iOS 7 with a pretty, new interface and I will rate it 5 stars.

  • ITranslate

    by hwey

    Einfach super u. Genial,kann man nur weiter empfehlen.... Hans

  • Awesome App

    by justiz

    I tested this with a friend of mine from Germany and it was pretty accurate. Can't wait to travel with it.

  • Love it

    by GlennC5000

    Works great! Had a little trouble figuring out that I could tap on either language to translate in either direction, but figured it out. Also love that I can speak, OR if you hold down on the language button instead of tapping it, you can type/cut and paste things.

  • Good App

    by Hglenn547

    Works well translating English to Thai.. Not so great from Thai to English.. Over all a good app to have.

  • Awesome

    by LaBeastiaBella

    Love it

  • Great help

    by Sonia Aranda

    This is a great help. There are only a few words or phrases it doesn't know. As someone who is learning Spanish it has helped me get it correct.

  • Fantastic.

    by Grath

    The future is here. It's lime Star Trek.

  • Excelente

    by josuevega77

    Siempre quise un app que me resolviera en aprietos como que alguien me hable en ingles demasiado rapido y para eso tengo este app

  • Perfect!

    by 81664

    I was truly amazed by this app. It's technically beyond!!!!

  • Fantastic and useful

    by Poncho & Lefty

    I was able to talk with my rock mason in extreme detail.

  • Good source!

    by ciscoe's account

    Really reliable and source-full. Use quite a bit, love it!

  • Wonderful app!

    by 1951 M38 Jeep

    I am a physical therapist and I have many Spanish-speaking patients, however my Spanish is not that great. I find that I can use this app frequently to be able to communicate better with my patients!

  • APP OBLIGATORIA

    by jairoaco5ta

    Excelente aplicación, es obligatorio tenerla. Muy práctica , abre puertas a muchos idiomas. Los diccionarios en físico pasaron a la historia.

  • Folie à deux

    by Jew1984

    This app is perfection!

  • Not working

    by MacBeNimble

    It doesn't hear my voice. Therefore it doesn't work.

  • Pretty Good App, but...

    by Gingergirlie77

    Like anything else, when it works I love it and when it doesn't I don't. This app is easy to use and effective when it hears you correctly. What's weird is that I feel like the app worked far better when I first installed it. I am not from the south or the east coast. I don't have a regional accent of any kind, which makes it that much more frustrating when I can't get a translation for a word as common & simple as 'Bib,' as in, "Where's the baby's bib?" It didn't matter how many different sentences I tried using the word or even saying the one word alone. I wish I could say this is a rare occurrence, but it seems to be happening more frequently.

  • Great app

    by Tish Berlin

    Works well so far

  • Amazing Translation App

    by Picture Elegance

    I use this app frequently for law enforcement related work. To date, it is the most convenient app I purchased. If I could offer one suggestion, it would be to allow the user to save the read back speed. It often speaks to quickly which can be changed but it has to be readjusted each time you reopen the app. Great product otherwise.

  • Very bad

    by XPSSD

    Very poor translation, the same word translation from one language to another have a different meaning. You need to hard work to be more better

  • Great app!

    by DKHauben1979

    Works well, an understands you well...

  • Simply amazing

    by 99Solutions

    It's much easier to both learn a language and communicate with other people from different countries!

  • Wonderful

    by like a rainbow

    This app is just plain what happens when peoples don't over think it. It's exactly what one would need when they need it. I think the only area that can be even discussed would be the UI and then it's all opinion. Great work folks.

  • Doesn't work for me

    by Gogifaye

    So far all I've gotten our error messages saying it can't connect to speech server. I find no spot find instructions or places to contact for help.

  • Alarm tech

    by Masciel

    This app is amazing !!! All of a sudden I understand Spanish

  • Horrible!!!

    by Jkallthetime22

    This app barely gets anything I say right in English let alone any other language!!! I basically have to spell it!! And when I do spell it and it says it if I say it back to the app exactly the way the app said it it still says its wrong!!! What a piece of crap!! Good thing it has the keyboard part or I would have ditched it long ago!! So they should probably fix the speech part!! And I don't really have an accent either so that can't be an excuse!!

  • RocknRollVoice

    by Server god

    Great little app that can hurdle most language barriers!! Must have!!

  • Total Crap

    by Mr reason

    This application provides no method for getting back to a prior screen once you go to a different one. Also, it has no instructions. And there's absolutely nothing intuitive about it! Google has a similar application which has no such problems.

  • It just works!

    by Hanjive

    Handy and helpful.

  • Very unhelpful

    by simsufian

    I did try it only for 5 minutes and most of the things I say are very miss understanded by the program.

  • No better for English to Mandarin

    by Ghostwalker54

    In a nutshell: it's no better than any of the other translation apps when using it for English to Mandarin. The only plus I would give it is that it also gives you the pinyin version to visualize. Downside is that it doesn't store your history of translations.

  • ⭐️ Good, Fun App

    by Zæphyr

    Definitely worth it. This is what I use when I have a translation question. Does it do perfect translations every time, no - but it is fast and accurate (with European languages) the majority of the time. Nice to have the voice or text option.

  • Great product

    by Donnuuber

    Not much to say about it. It's a great product flat out. Someone had the right idea, implemented it, and sold it. Language is a constantly evolving subject, and it's great to have a software that mirrors that. Thank you iTranslate!

  • Great app

    by tokyo.drftr

    I use this extensively. Mostly in Russian. As for a machine translator. It's one of the best.

  • Amazing!

    by Leo from Miami

    Amazing voice recognition, almost 100% correct and always an accurate (spoken!) translation from English to Spanish.

  • Fun

    by WALL-E3000

    Certainly not perfect but still pretty fun. Just don't use it to talk to your in-laws!

  • Perfect!

    Great app , it has helped me very much

  • Muy buena

    by L&L63

    Me gusta. Me ha ayudado mucho. Todos deberíamos tenerla.

  • Not bad

    by Elexxi

    I work at Uhaul and we deal with people from all over, some speak better English then others but this app has proved helpful a few times. It's not perfect, sometimes choosing the right dialect is difficult but usually it's enough to get the point across to someone needing help. It would be nice to get a patch with a few more languages added, for example Cambodian would be VERY helpful for me. Even the ability to help teach languages through this app could be beneficial. Like a pocket Rosetta Stone :)

  • Good when it works

    by maishengher

    Translations by machine are not always the most reliable, but this really has a hard time hearing my speech correctly. I tested English, Japanese and Korean with super basic sentences and it keeps hearing things wrong so the translated text comes out wrong. Voice recognition needs improving.

  • Ok

    by TAWFEG JASSER

    Nice app

  • CT iTranslate User

    by HeavenDarling

    This is an incredible application. I have been able to use it on very quick response to a Chinese bag boy at my grocery to my regular interaction with my Mexican and Brazilian housecleaners. It's great, I can't wait to travel with this in pocket.

  • Not very accurate

    by EuphoricPulse

    Poor speech recognition and shoddy translations.

  • Great app!!!

    by Junfan009

    I love this app it's such a great concept I glad it worked on my phone, now I can date over sea no problem. Yay apple

  • Pretty good

    by Val-Al

    I like it. If it can work offline that must be great!!!

  • Awesome

    by Lazar Lazar

    This app is a great tool, some languages are better than others, but it is consistently better than google translate. 이 응용 프로그램은 훌륭한 도구입니다, 일부 언어는 다른 사람보다 더 나은,하지만 지속적으로 구글 번역보다 낫다. Это приложение представляет собой прекрасный инструмент, некоторые языки лучше, чем другие, но это последовательно лучше, чем Google Translate. Aceasta aplicatie este un instrument de mare, unele limbi sunt mai bune decât altele, dar este în mod constant mai bine decât Google Translate. هذا التطبيق هو أداة عظيمة، وبعض لغات هي أفضل من غيرها، وإنما هو دائما أفضل من جوجل ترجمة. 这个程序是一个伟大的工具,某些语言比别人更好,但它始终优于谷歌翻译。 Questa applicazione è un grande strumento, alcune lingue sono migliori di altri, ma è sempre meglio di google translate.

  • GREAT

  • Works great!

    by napale

    I speak 4 languages ( Spanish, English, Portuguese and French) and I've been using this app to talk with Sweden, Russian and German co-workers really easy and correctly. This is a must have if you are a traveler.

    I love this app, can you add the Philippines? I have some Filipino family members and I think they will be exited about this app. Thanks!!!

  • Superb! The best app ever!

    by dna.x

    The speech recognition is excellent, translations are superb as far as I can tell anyway, since I'm still learning Spanish. This is one of my favorite apps, and a great learning tool for me. It's really helping me with my Spanish.

  • Awesome

    by NJmamaLinda

    Loving it, so far no problems and very user friendly!

    by Denny Hayes

    I typically only right negative reviews, but in this case this app is much better than I expected.

  • Not bad

    by Gg4013114

    It's a little ruff but gets the point across

  • Traveler

    by Mae Tattoo

    I like the ITranslate app it is very helpful for basic communication but it needs more languages like Latin for example. Also to translate not so formally it needs to be more natural but I would recommend this app to anyone who needs a translator this is the best one

  • Irish

    by BrentCPT

    Wish you would add audio Irish.

  • Really Good app

    by Easfeue

    Perfect for helping my kids with their language assignments when I don't understand!

  • Excellent. app.

    by Johncorky

    It is quick and easy to use.

  • It does an okay job. About as expected

    by Charlie Pryor

    It has some issues with Vietnamese, and many of the sentences my father-in-law says aren't translated back correctly at all. Maybe it's a dialect issue. Not sure. Most of my English sentences are (almost) right when going to Vietnamese. At least, enough to where he pretty much understands what I'm trying to say. Would like to see better support for this major Asian language in the near future.

  • In app purchase does not work

    by Asloane

    This was a good idea but it definitely has some flaws . And my presidential voice doesn't work at all which is disappointing

  • Needs iOS 7 icon update

    by smis7

    The app doesn't allow for copying until you've translated two phrases.

  • J'adore!!!!

    by Alonzo Skinner

    It's great for keeping my grammar et spelling accurate! I completely love it!!!!

  • Impressive

    by Furthest Left

    You just have to set your expectations to what is possible with this type of software. It may not be grammatically correct but it will allow your meaning to get across. For example the Chinese reviewer pointed out its mistakes in Chinese using mistakes in English. But I still understood his meaning.

  • Cool app!

    by DRM48

    Useful app I like it.

  • Amazing translator

    by Beebees in

    This translator is very accurate in German and Spanish. You have to speak pretty clearly, but I would expect that, even from a human translator. Love this app!

  • Helpful and impressive

    by Kwerks996

    Everything is good just wish it had background noise filtering... Too many times noise gets in the way of things.

  • Cool app. Needs iOS 7!

    by Tip King

    Please Devs, update this great app to iOS 7! It's about time!!

  • M

    by Elyoum7

    Can not recognize one paragraph, dangerous and useless

  • Excellent Work

    by Lehnert

    Amazing coding work! I'm very impressed! Obviously it's not meant for intense conversation but just a basic translation which is still a huge feat on its own!
