App Reviews

  • Absolutely useless.

    By ;45/3)
    I’ve tried this app on 2 different occasions, months apart and both times it only translates one to two words in a line of text. And then I get a box asking if I want to upgrade. No. If it can’t translate 2 lines of a clothing label, how could it ever translate a menu as the professional ad has it seem. Makes me question if the highly positive feedback is self-promotion. After trying the app, that’s what it looks like.
  • Paid app performs poorly

    By Wbathome
    Paid for the app, but worked worse than free google translate (had to use vpn in China though).
  • So valuable!

    By artsiecook
    I spent 5 weeks in China and this was life changing. I was able read menus which was the most fun and entertaining. With all the choices in every restaurant large or small, i was able to try all the things i wanted! I read menus like novels so it was incredible! It was great for reading train tickets, signage and descriptions. I brought back ingredients and have been able to translate the packaging and recipes in Asian grocery stores here in the US!
  • Great app for traveling

    By HuanAlbert
    Very useful app while in Asia. It comes handy to navigate menus written in Chinese.
  • Chinese to English

    By RickyRocGod
    Have only used for Chinese but it got me through my first trip to China with very few problems
  • Awesome app

    By Steve Crago
    I use this app every time I go to China. No need to ask for English menu, as long as you have a good connection:-)
  • Great app!

    By Ryan from RI
    Very awesome, wish I had it when I lived in China!
  • Frustrating for Japanese

    By ClovisKid4321
    I am in Japan and I've tried to use this app for translating Japanese on many occasions. I upgraded to the paid version. The translations are really poor. Many things completely not food related translate into food items. For example, there's "fatty tuna" all over the place. Food items on a menu seem to translate much quicker and seemingly more accurately. Maybe that's where the developers focused their attention? I have used it on some Chinese characters with the Chinese translation, and that seems to occur much more quickly and accurately. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this app except as an emergency back-up to avoid eating anything you'd rather not eat.
  • Not great

    By Longstoryfan99
    I’ve been using it in Tokyo and it doesn’t work super well, pretty finicky. Google translates camera function works better most of the time
  • Chinese
