Was 5 stars before the recent update
The new UI is not user intuitive at all. Past translations clog up the screen and for some bizarre reason, when you try to copy the translation, it copies EVERYTHING. Like this: Chinese Simplified: 这不好。English: This is not good. Why would I ever need ALL that? There’s a reason no other translator app copies like that. It’s stupid.
I formally would’ve given this 5 stars but with this update it doesn’t let you translate a web page from the action menu in a web browser. That was the best feature. Please bring it back. It supported languages that the 🍎 did not.
I gave two stars because they updated the app to include delete function. BUT you have to delete each translation individually. This renders this app USELESS. Also, the layout is very clunky AND not user friendly. I simply cannot use this app. What a shame. please take into consideration. All of the negative comments. The app was working fine before.
The new update is not user friendly. Formatting is confusing.
I need to use translation for Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and Haitian Creole. Not only does it translate using real, everyday words but it does it very accurately. I love that you can change the voices based on country. Take a peek at the Spanish and you’ll see you can change the voice based on which Latin American country. I’ve been telling my coworkers about this app. It’s very impressive.
Your translator used to work well. Now it is not intuitive. It no longer seems to offer Detect as a language. It apparently no longer can translate Russian and Ukrainian transliterated into the Western alphabet. Two stars because I have not tried to figure out the new user interface.
Once again Microsoft can’t leave a good thing alone. The most recent update took away all the best features, like being able to copy/paste and especially, especially the split screen!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTH?!? I also noticed the font size on the translations, especially for language like Hindi or Korean, is smaller makes the translation very hard to users to read. I depended on this app when traveling through Italy, India, and Greece and have used it religiously for years now. It took away all the stress of being stranded in areas where little English was spoken. I needed it when I found myself in the emergency room in Croatia, and had no one to help me explain my problem and fill out the paperwork. I would have been lost without it. The split screen is so helpful when shopping or even renting a car. I’m sick to have to delete it and hopefully find something similar. Didn’t you all do any user research before you updated???
Before the update I could run meetings smoothly and speak to my English language learner students easily. Now my students cannot just communicate with me quickly 😡. I get frustrated because it won’t just say what you say back you have to press buttons and it takes time to process before it repeats. Then you have to switch languages before the other person can speak. I work with k-5 students they don’t have a phone to connect with mine! I get where it is going and why it was done but I wish it was an add on and not a complete change. I got a lot of Gen Ed teachers and office admin on this app to help them with students and their parents now we are all disappointed. Too many steps 🤯
