English to Russian Russian To English - I have been using this for a little over a year. I compare translations between this program and google translator and microsoft translator for accuracy. This program provides accurate or close to accurate translations 95% of the time. The voice is extremely helpful. I use Skype, translate the information and then push the voice button and the individual on the other end of Skype can hear the translation. I can carry on a conversation for hours. I get immediate feed back on the accuracy of the translation and have developed many friendships with this program. I cannot speak, read or write Russian. The individuals on the “other end” have stated many many times they believe I can speak and understand Russian fluently. This program is extremely eaisy to use, good accuracy and the voice helps you learn the language and makes it very interesting for the receiving party. When the translation is very important I will run it through this program, google and microsoft and evaluate the results. I choose this program 95 % of the time. Microsoft is more accurate but far more difficult and time consuming to use. For my use google has been the least accurate.

Absolute Garbage! - The app is pretty slick when it works but, unfortunately, that's so rare that I never use it any more. I have found it to crash perhaps 24 times out of every 25 attempts to use it. For a while, I believed that the crashing was my desire to use C&P to enter the information but I've since learned that it crashes even with manual typing. I have a 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo Mac with 8G RAM.

Review by Mr. Zark

Wonderful App - I have a friend who lives overseas who isn't fluent in English. I use this app to translate full sentences, and just a word if they don't know how to say it in English. There are some issues where it won't translate what I or they say correctly, but the translation isn't completely off to where you can't put the words together yourself. Also it won't translate any slang. So you or the person will have to use the correct letters for the translation to make sense. I've never expierenced any crashes while I've used it so for me it's pretty stable.

Review by katznelson1

How to make this app the perfect translation app - I use Universal Translator and another app called Translate. I my opinion Universal Translator is better, but the only thing that it misses, and its really helpful, is the feature that the other app has (Translate), that enables you to translate directly a selected text by giving a right click and choosing the app from the menu. It would be really nice if Universal Translator had this feature.

Review by mtdq

Useful to me! - I often come across little bits of foreign languages in the middle of stories that I’m reading. Universal Translator not only automatically figures out the language (correctly almost every time), but also translates it for me. Its accuracy is good enough for my use. But I don’t understand why the links to Universal Translator Support take you to an all Chinese language site that seems to be for games. Am I supposed to run all the text on the page through their app to figure out how to get support? I have a suggestion for a future feature: add a contextual menu item. That would let you highlight text, right-click it, and get a translation without having to open the app itself. Alternatively, it could be a Service, but that wouldn’t be quite as convenient.
