    I’m a salon manager of a pet grooming salon. I have a few clients who don’t speak a lot of English and I wanted to find a better way to communicate with them. I stumbled upon this app and downloaded it waiting for one of my non English speaking clients to come in. Yesterday was the day. I set up the free trial trying to see if it would work as well as I’d like and when my client came in I was able to ask her how she was doing and how her pet was doing in Japanese and her eyes got huge and she squealed with delight. We had our very first entire conversation about her and her pet. When she came back to pick up her dog she was able to tell me that she truly appreciated my kindness and that I was willing to go above and beyond to help her so she stopped at the Japanese market and bought my entire shop a bunch of snacks and candy. This app changed at least one of my clients lives for the better and that is worth 5$ a month in my honest opinion. Although some of the words she had said in Japanese were not translated correctly (whether it was her speed of talking or dialect I’m not sure) we were still able to converse pretty easily and I couldn’t be more satisfied. Maybe just work on recognition or dialect to improve some translations but otherwise this is changing my customer service for the better! Thank you to the whole team at converse for improving my customers lives!

    The concept is awesome and I was really excited to try it, however they don’t offer the languages I need. (Specifically Vietnamese) I hope they add more languages in the future.
  • Not sure the difference

    Summary/ TL; DR version: User beware. They won’t listen and won’t change. If that isn’t a sure fire sign of corporate greed, I’m not sure what is. Despite what you might think of Google, Google Translate is clearly the better product. Full Version: I decided to read the comments, to gauge how valuable my leaving feedback would be for the developer. It clearly isn’t. The Developer and his team basically just auto-respond the same 3 responses to most of the comments. Background: I’m a Science teacher, and thought this app would be helpful to use in my inner-city classroom with ESL Spanish students. I don’t speak a lot of Spanish. Thankfully, I have a rudimentary knowledge of the language, and some students that are bilingual I could test this out on. Since the Developer won’t listen to people’s complaints, this review is for the user and why you should stay away from this app, and use Google Translate on your iPhone, instead of trying to use this app’s Watch version, regardless of how convenient it sounds. So, for the user, here are my 3 biggest gripes with the free AND Pro versions of this app. The Review: 1) Google Translate simply does it better. iTranslate is supposed to be Voice-to-Voice translation. Cool conversational idea, if executed properly. Except, this app is slow, clunky, and requires a solidly fast Internet connection at all times to be used. To boot, the Watch version, having to send the signal through the phone, is even slower, and less accurate than the phone version (iPhone XS Max and Watch Series 3; it’s not like I’m doing this on iPhone 6 or Watch Series 1). My bilingual students, who understand me perfectly and understand how English and Spanish should be translated, stated that this app wasn’t translating accurately at all (70% accuracy). Spanish is the second most spoken language in the United States, other than English! This is a travesty! Google Translate, while not always perfect, was significantly more accurate (95%). The only inconvenience is you have an extra step of pushing a button to put the translated text into speech. But, if I have to choose between a faulty translation and pushing an extra button, I’ll choose the more convenient and correctly translated option, every time (inaccuracy is a far greater form of inconvenience than having to push an extra button for speech). 2) iTranslate states that it is “not possible” for them to have languages available offline. Maybe not for them, but Google does. I can download over 150 languages (verses iTranslate’s boastful 38 languages of use) to my iPhone, and use every single one offline. Now, offline translation may not always be as accurate, but if my cell service is terrible as I’m stuck in a part of town where nobody speaks English, I can still order food and ask where I can find my favorite snack in the supermarket. If iTranslate was willing to invest in such models- even in their subscription based Pro version you can’t do this- it would allow the phone and watch to rely less on the Internet connection for speech recognition and provide a more accurate translation, even when connected to the Internet. 3) Their subscription model is gloriously deceptive. Google Translate is free. Period. I have used both of iTranslate’s versions (free and Pro), and my bilingual students and I did not notice a substantial difference in the accuracy of the apps. Which, is not cool, considering $5-$10 can typically net you a ridiculously large gaming app or other “life hack” apps permanently. But, that being said, let’s talk about the biggest complaint with their subscription model- the fact that for most users, the subscription page that pops up is deceptive in leading you to believe you must sign up (or leading users to believe they’re just continuing on to the free part of the app). Now, thankfully, I’ve played enough games on iOS with similar looking advertising that I know where to look for the tiny “x” that is salvation in getting out of those ads. iTranslate’s subscription is no different, except that where most advertising would say “DOWNLOAD NOW” or “SIGN UP NOW” as their big button compared to the tiny “x” to get out, iTranslate deceptively uses the word “CONTINUE” to make it appear to an uninformed user that they are just continuing to the free version of the app. Another quick Apple notification pops up, which most users unfamiliar with this step will hit okay, thinking they’re still using the free app, when they’re not. Even worse, if users cancel their subscription through the App Store within the seven day trial period, they still get charged for using the app. Knowing that most people won’t fight over $5, it’s a very clever, and dishonest, way to get money for a poorly developed and executed app. We’ll know you’re serious about listening to us if you change that orange button to say, “Subscribe Now”, instead of the deceptive “Continue”. Clear, more transparent language like this is necessary in an app built on teaching multiple people groups and languages. Now, if the Developer responds, they will most likely auto-respond with these 3 responses, telling you they aren’t listening to their clients complaints, instead of taking feedback and actually using the money they obtain to improve the app: 1) “Sounds like you were having problems with the voice recognition.” Duh!! That’s why I’m complaining about it! 2) “The language is clear” (in very fine print that even The Santa Clause can’t rival) “...that you’re signing up for a subscription, and here’s how to cancel your subscription....” and 3) “This app is free. Only the PRO version needs to be paid for.” Unfortunately, there isn’t a discernible difference in the performance of the PRO version verses your free version. Google does it better for free. On iOS. Which Google hates! Step up, bro! Quit auto-responding in a losing PR battle and be transparent to your short comings, and then fix them. Users, see my summary at the beginning.
  • Very good app
