Word for word?

Version 3.2.13
The translations of single words are to single words without options, so that the option offered can be contextually mistaken.
I’m not sure how this could be handled. A mere list of options could be uninformative.
Maybe advice that a single word, especially with regard to accenting (for example “pêche” or “pêcher” - that’s just what came up with autocorrection), is especially ambiguous and might be better sought by asking for a phrase.
Anyway: felicitations!

I like this much better than google translate as it’s dictation allows for good sized sentences without cutting out like competitors. I’m told the English to French translations are particularly accurate.

Version 3.2.5
Not many people will know but in Windows Phone 8.1, the Microsoft translator app was absolutely the best. Instant camera translations (no photo needs to be taken/button pressrd) it simply worked seamlessly and better than anything out there . The entire app ran quicker as well on a much much weaker hardware. Offline mode was perfect as well (side note offline maps were great too on WP 8.1). Of course Microsoft app isn’t designed to work best on iPhone, but just saying that most people wouldn’t know how good that app was on WP 8.1

Really a difficult language to translate from or to.
Because of the context of the structural conversational meanings and the semantics of Thai phrases things are often incorrectly interpreted.
Anticipating with more use of ML, AI and Deep NMT for future translations I hope translations will be more accurate.

Good app

Version 3.0.5
Even with the relevant language packs downloaded the app frequently reports that offline mode is not available and directs you to download the language packs.
Additionally, it will only use the downloaded language packs if you have absolutely no network connection. Consequently, if your network connection is slow or unreliable, so will be the app.
I wouldn't rely on it to get you by.

Great when working properly.
Works most of the time, but I have had problems downloading Mandarin for the Translator to work offline.
So I reinstalled it and could not download the offline languages that I wanted.
It seems to be working when I am connected to my wifi now but it has not been working for 3 days previous.
But when working it is fantastic.
Suggest that you have a way of slowing down the language pronunciation like Other translate app.
As this language requires perfect pronunciation.
Could also have a dictionary associated as some words have same sound or meaning but are different for the situation
