  • It’s good but has issues

    By masterchief2841
    It is a good translator app but in Japanese it pronounces です (desu) with the u way too strong (the u is supposed to be silent) and even if you have censor profanity on for voice translation it might still say the word.
  • SUPER!

    What did I do without this app? I no longer sound silly is what.
  • Fantastic!!!

    I especially love the feature where it translates the picture with the translation overlaid on the picture in the same place as the original text - NOT the messy jumble of text Google gives you. This is my go-to app for international travel, and I can't rate it highly enough!
  • The best translation app.

    I have used other translation apps and found that MSN app is the best so far. Thanks man.
  • Useful

    Just love it. It is very useful.
  • Great but too literal at times

    By Boscoe777
    The translations are great overall but tend to be literal. It makes a big difference in the meaning when translating English to Spanish. Google Translate does a better job. Other than that, this is a great app. Very user friendly with multiple inputs.

    Some words which translate are not correct spatially in other languages to English.

    I love it
  • The best

    By Levi Abbott
    I use this app almost daily, while I have been around Spanish speakers for my entire adult life and even taken several Spanish classes, I often just don’t understand or have difficulty expressing myself. Having a translator app on my phone really removes hurdles in daily life. I have tried the comparable app from Google and for English/Spanish Microsoft has done a vastly superior job handling linguistic idioms. To often other translators provide a literal word for word translation that is difficult and sometimes doesn’t convey the original intent. The chat function is great to collaborate with multiple people too.

    It’s good until I use the photo capability. It’s basically useless. Does not recognize languages. Thus cannot translate something it thinks is Japanese when it’s actually English. Use Google if you need this. Otherwise too cluttered and cumbersome to use. It’s unfortunately what I expected.
