Best Translator in the App Store! - I have several translators, some costing much more, and this one is the best. Hands down. The translations are much more accurate than other translators. This one is also very easy to use and will speak your translation for you, too, so you know if your pronounciation is correct. Of course, you can enter text by typing OR speech. Also, you do not have to clear the field to enter another word or text for translation. Get this one. You will be pleased with the quality vs. cost.
Trash - The speech translator seems to not be able to capture more than 7 or 8 words in a sentence before automatically cutting off. I was able to translate about 10 to 12 test sentences before it stopped translating altogether on me. Just sat there with the little circles going round and round and not translating either language. Total waste of 5 bucks.

Speak & Translate - Agreed. Best translator of Spanish and Mexican Spanish in the app store.
Nifty little program - This is fun to play with and actually helps refresh memory if you are rusty in a language. Seems fast and efficient in translations.
Really Good - A few glitches with Japanese spoken translation, but still very usable. Makes it much easier for an American living in Japan. It’s also helping me learn a diffucult language. Thanks !!!
Yow! - I just purchased it. I needed something to translate Italian songs, art songs, into English. So far the translations are very funny - not at all near to being exact or even close! I will need to write the Italian words. I hope it then works!! More later...
WORTHLESS APP CRASHES UPON OPENNING ON OS 10.9 - This app States that it works on OS 10.9. This is not true as the app crashes upon opening in OS 10.9. The earlier version works fine on OS 10.9. I contacted support three times on this issue. They continue to tell me after A month that they are still working on the problem. I believe that they are not going to fix it at all. If I could just get the old version back again it would work. If you have OS 10.9 don't buy this.
