Please give us the option to go back the prior interface. So much waisted space and unintuitive.
Now I can not use my apple Magic Keyboard with translator at all. Every time I try to type in English a blue box outlines everything and no spaces are inserted between words when I hit the space bar, and a blue box pops up asking what languages I am trying for, when it already is defaulted to English and Spanish at the top of the page. When I select English (which is already highlighted) the blue box does not disappear, it stays blocking my view of what was typed "below" it. This update makes the translator useless. I think from other apps, that the voice translation is improved but if you type quickly and converse that way as I do sometimes, this app is once again useless. I am tired of updates that screw everything up. Great for awhile then some major snafu makes this translator basically too much trouble to use.
The final update is really bad in everything !!
3/25/23 Google Translate. I don’t get it! I updated the app but I see no difference with it. I don’t see anything except what was there before the update. What am I missing here? I guess I’m missing a brain. I just can’t see anything different between the before and the after. I already have a widget, so what’s the difference between before the update and after it? I’m puzzled. Am I needlessly puzzled? Or is there a real reason? H-e-l-p! Previous Review: I commend ye Google for this app. Updated languages, automatic keyboard for each language, (I’m learning three), and always being able to count on you. My heart is happy to have your help. Many thanks, no complaints. 1/13/23 Happy New Year! Update: March 11, 2023. I’m still loving your app. True perfection. Thank you so much!
Not sure why but Google completely changed the interface. Old version was much simpler to use. Just because you can change something, doesn’t mean you should.
I have used the app from its beginning and I can’t understand (no pun intended) why the developers destroyed it! If you used the old app and see and try to use the new app you will agree!!!
Sorry, but if you don’t fix the app I’ll be forced to use another. I’m shocked that so big company can’t make good UI/UX. I would like to have the same functionality but without big buttons etc
The last update is terrible. Very slow and full of bugs
I agree with others that the new interface is awful, the previous one was great. Ditto in regard to the work required for accessing the history.
Since yesterday I’m getting a “Network Error” notice every time I open Google Translate. It says “Translate was unable to establish a connection to fulfill your request. Please check your network connection and try again” My connection is perfect and every other app/browser works perfectly. I’ve rebooted my iPhone I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the app Nothing is solving it Any help is appreciated
