    by Kj 1421

    Get this! A great tool for those of us who's spanish es muy mal. I learn so much from this app and find myself improving each time I use it!

  • It really works!

    by Strykeroo

    I did several translation tests in Spanish and this application is quite accurate. It is also a cool icebreaker in meeting new people!

  • F A N T A S T I C !

    by Malloware

    Easy to use. Uses multi language keyboards. And easy to paste translations onto different apps for optimum communication. Love it! Great work, guys!

  • Best translation

    by Maliit Sugi

    So far i have purchased 'i translate voice' 'say hi' and 'i handy translate'. I need it for work so figured it wouldnt b a bad investment to buy all the top rated ones and try them all out to pick the best one. So far i've tried three different languages with bilingual friends and came to the conclusion that although the other two apps are convenient because i do not have to hand over the phone to the other party, (i do not like other people touching my phone), the i handy translation was much more accurate. It's just too bad that tagalog is not offered because that is one of the languages i really needed. I did notice 'say hi' offered tagalog with premium but with their sub-par translation (well at least in my opinion), it would b a waste. IF ONLY i handy offered tagalog...hint hint, it would b nice.

  • A new idea.

    by Vernonjd

    I love this app but the hardest thing for me is writing every thing down to see the translation. How about you use the camera to be able to snap pics of the words and have it translate that way? That would be awesome.

  • Better than Google Translate

    by Oderian Edwards

    This translator is much better than Google Translate. The latter often gets translations wrong, and is not very reliable. Translator Pro is king!

  • Frustration

    by Como se dice

    This device can be excellent WHEN IT WORKS. Trouble gaining Internet access can make this potentially useful application absolutely useless. Too often it has failed me when I needed it the most. Why can't a review of less than five stars be easily submitted?

  • Best translator app

    by Photo Plus Photography

    It does help you learn anything.... I'm impressed. Purchasing the whole $1.99 app is worth it because you can hear how it is pronounced correctly and not having to wonder how it sounds like is very beneficial.

  • Not what I was hoping for

    by Bummer 17865

    While there is a text to Persian translator, there is no speech Persian translator. I was hoping there would be but there isn't. It seems no one has it, so for me it was a waist for money.

    I paid for the app thinking that I could learn how to say a phrase in a different language. All it tells me is how to say it in English. How do I get my money back?

    by mkeinarth

    I love to study languages. Sometimes it will drive me crazy if I cannot remember a word or phrase. This application comes to the rescue for me. Also, it is nice to listen to how the words or phrases are sad. I don't know why I hesitated to upgrade to the Pro level.

  • Very Good

    by Hdvjrdjyeg

    Requires internet access. Like most of the language translation apps, it won't get you out of a jam unless you've purchased a mobile internet plan through Vodaphone, Orange or. some other provider. Besides that, it does a fine job helping you with those phrases that aren't in the text books or tapes.
