Pros
I have been using Google translate for quite a lot of time and love it for its ease of use and the way it provides instant translations with great accuracy.
I have had a great experience using this software. I have learned to type many phrases in from English to foreign languages which is really awesome.
The translations are also getting better and better and the community is very kind and helpful. Therefore, I can easily recommend this piece of software for all the compatible devices it is available.
Cons
This product is really horrible when it comes to translating Indian languages atleast in my experience. This product really kills languages such as Tamil instead of translating it.
Do not expect to be able to accurately translate full sentences. Often words have multiple meaning and the wrong word can be suggested.
One can not know if the translation done is correct. The security and privacy of this application is poor.

An amazing multilingual translator tool but sometime it not will fulfill your requirements

Reviewed a year ago

My overall experience with Google Translator is amazing. As a freelancer, I worked with different types of people around the world who use different languages. All people don't know English, they love to write in their native language. Google Translator tool always helps me in this type of situation, communication becomes smooth with those types of clients which helps me to connect with more people.

Pros

Google has developed an excellent tool that is very helpful for all people around the world. Not only a few sentences or paragraphs, but this tool also allows to translation of different kinds of files such as DOCX, PDF, XLXS, etc. It's very simple and easy to use, I can type texts directly, add texts through a virtual keyboard even translate by voice. Another helpful feature is, I can check the translation history which is really helpful. Integration Google Translator with WordPress website is pretty easy by using the plugin, as well as on the browser extension even in the smartphone.

Cons

Almost everything is good in this tool, but there is a weird thing I've noticed on Google Translator which is its translate style. For example, a sentence is written in English that I've translated into the Bengali language; the tool sometimes can't translate the sentence like how the proper native Bengali language act. There are no human feelings in the texts, seems like it's translating by a robot using very hard words. And the translated texts are also shown in the English alphabet but not in the correct spelling. I think this software needs to improve the user experience.

For example when i translate some text from English to Urdu or Urdu to English, as a native Urdu speaker i detect some issues which needs to be resolved. Further some text are shown in English language in spite of translation.

basic help app for quick translations

Reviewed 9 days ago

I use it to translate single words, I usually use other apps when translating or interpreting more complex texts

Pros

I like how simple it is to implement but it is useful for basic things or translating single words, when it comes to long texts it tends to make grammar errors

Cons

makes many grammar errors and lacks the ability to interpret technical and professional texts from colloquial texts
