    "Google Translate, in my experience, is probably the best text to text translator out there. I've used it to translate English into Japanese, or Japanese into English, or German into English, and so on. It's not always fully accurate, of course, but compared to other free translation software I've used before, I would definitely recommend it as my first choice. It's especially useful when I'm looking doing an image search, but the image I'm looking for is in another language. Well, I just put the word into Google Translate, get my new translated word, and search for that instead. It makes it easy to find what I'm looking for. I honestly don't know what I'd use instead if Google Translate wasn't around anymore."

    "I've tried a handful of different translator apps since I'm constantly traveling for work but none have been perfect so far for me. That is, until I discovered iTranslate Translator. What I really like about iTranslate is the vast dictionary it has available. I can easily translate text, start voice to voice conversations and also translate websites right from it. The fact that it has over 100 different languages makes this so useful for me when I have to travel internationally. It's simple for me to use because I simply type in the phrase or question I have and it translates it on the fly for me, dictation is there so I can repeat it or just play it for conversation. The option that truly won me over for this app is the offline mode. I can't stress how important this is because it helps prevent roaming charges when I'm out of the country. I can still use it without fear of wild data charges from my cellular provider. iTranslate is the best app for me when it comes to translation hands down."

    "This is fun. I am not multi-lingual, so I cannot vouch for the accuracy, but who doesn't want to throw in a bit of French every so often! I type in in English, and it gives me the translation. I might even learn a thing or two! "

    "This app is so useful when travelling (obviously). I was impressed with its accuracy and how receptive it was to my voice. My only advice would be to maybe allow for a silent option for translation results. Like, instead of the app reading them outloud, maybe have the translation just come up in words on screen, just in case you're in a quiet place. "

    "Waygo is a pretty good translator app for Chinese, Japanese and Korean words. You simply point your camera at the characters and the translation comes up. Some of the translations are incorrect, but I have great hope for the future of this app."

    "Fast Translate is one of the best apps for translators. I use it to copy and paste text from emails from my Mexican friends. It translates it to English quickly and correctly. It is one of the best apps I have ever used and helps me keep in touch and learn a little Spanish too!"
