    When it works, it's great; when it doesn't, it's terrible. I use this app for many languages. I don't often have problems with French, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, or Korean. I have had continuous problems with Chinese, though. Sometimes, the language just disappears. I'll try to translate between Chinese and English using the microphone to speak and the Chinese option will disappear. Sometimes, it shows Chinese as an option but won't actually take spoken input. I've had to close out of the app and restart it over and over again. This is a relatively new issue, but it's very persistent and really hobbles the app. I haven't had such issues with the camera feature for Chinese, nor have I had any issues with the written Chinese. I've actually found both features very useful in my study of the Chinese language and my examination of Chinese characters that I find in books and on packaging. I'm grateful for those great features. I really hope that the audio feature for Chinese is fixed soon. I have submitted reports to Google but haven't heard anything back. Just be aware of this issue if using the app for Chinese. Double-click on the home button and swipe away the app to close it out and then restart it. That has helped me. Perhaps part of the issue is that Chinese is tonal? Other languages are not and they're much easier to understand by ear when hearing a person speak. Perhaps that extends to the difficulty of making the app work with it? I have noticed that even when it works, sometimes it's finnicky when recognizing certain tones. It's a great app, but this really needs improvement. I look forward to seeing what fixes updates bring.

    If you need more than 10 seconds of dialogue recorded, forget about it with this app! I needed about 2 minuets to get the idea of an assignment, but I kept having to restart both my homework and this app’s microphone after just a few seconds of dialogue making it difficult to piece together the assignment. Also, when I went to start my first review it shut my phone down! Nope...not happy with this app, sorry!

    Hello Google, I am here to tell you about some problems I have with this app! When I sometimes have words being pronounced, when it suddenly crashes and, I’ve got to restart the app. Also sometimes I have problems the English narrator saying words wrong! Please fix it! Thanks, and sincerely me!

    Too often the app doesn’t even get close to translating a foreign language. If it worked even a 50% success rate I would be happy.

    App is great, but come on. 60 million people speak Cantonese. Please add Cantonese. I don’t know why you guys put all these useless African languages and languages nobody speaks. Some people actually need Cantonese because it’s actually useful for business and whatnot.
  • Abysmal & suspiciously frightening Japanese-to-English translation

    I can't help but wonder if Google is trolling with the Japanese-to-English translations (mostly from screenshots, or via the camera). As others have mentioned, the translations are completely mangled and senseless, and 99% inaccurate. Also, some very horrifying and profane results occasionally appear -- sentences and words that I KNOW for a fact don't have anything to do with the context of the Japanese characters/text that I am trying to translate from the screenshots. It feels extremely demonic, actually. . . I think Google is doing this on purpose. I deleted this garbage Google app because it was seriously frightening me, and is not even helpful at all. A few examples of the frightening translations I've received: 1. When I turn on the camera function to pick a screenshot from my pictures, somehow when the app scans for Japanese text (and no text is there) it finds nonexistent "phantom words" in the background, in the objects and scenery in front of the camera lens. It randomly found and popped up with the words "CANCER" and "KILL" on my table, among other bizarre things. How can it "find" such weird and disturbing words that aren't there!? 2. A sentence from a Japanese advertisement for a children's toy (a hamster plush doll) translated to: "I will strangle my friends and colleagues." That is downright terrifying! I have no idea why it would mistranslate a cute toy advert to something so inaccurate, psychopathic and murderous! 3. A sentence from a screenshot of a Japanese children's app game (when you feed an animal in the game) was supposed to say, "I am full. I cannot eat anymore food." But this app literally translated it to "I cannot get [bleeped] up anymore." Yes, it mistranslated it to the f-word profanity -- which, by the way, DOES NOT EVEN EXIST IN THE JAPANESE LANGUAGE!!! This was the final straw. Deleted! I know this might sound crazy, but I am being completely honest! I am petrified by what this app mistranslated! What the hell, Google!? Why is this sick, warped app mistranslating Japanese text into vulgar, horrifying things!? Never using this again! 😡
