Top Best Mobile Translation Apps to Convert Any Language
1. Google Translate
Google Translate is one of the best-known translators due to its versatility and simplicity. And you can access even more features in Google Translate’s mobile app. The service supports over 100 languages for translations of typed or handwritten text.
Google Translate also comes in handy at foreign restaurants. Snap a picture of the menu, and it will provide a translation. Currently, Google Translate supports 38 languages for camera translation and 32 languages for conversation mode.
Don’t forget about offline mode in case you’re in an area without internet. You still can translate 59 languages when you’re away from Wi-Fi.
2. Microsoft Translator
Microsoft Translator is another big name in translation apps and offers an even simpler interface than Google Translate. Four big bubbles float on the home screen of the app. Their functions are pretty self-explanatory: voice translation, conversation translation, photo translation, and text translation.
Although Microsoft Translator supports fewer languages than Google Translate, it’s still just as powerful.
3. Reverso Translation Dictionary
Reverso is definitely limited when it comes to supported languages (it only works with 11), but it provides more detailed translation information than other apps.
Choose a language and type a word into the search bar. On the results page, the app presents alternatives to that word in whichever language you choose. It provides several definitions that show how to use the word in different contexts as well.
4. Naver Papago Translator
When you open Papago, you’ll notice an area to type the text you want to translate, along with three colorful bars that represent your translation options. It supports 13 languages that you can translate via text, voice, and photo.
Select Papago Mini, and you can access the translator while you surf the web. A tiny box along with a parrot icon will appear in the corner of your browser. Simply copy a chunk of text from a website, and you’ll receive a complete translation.
5. SayHi Translate
SayHi is made specifically for translating speech and text, which means it’s a bit limited in other features. However, it does support a variety of languages and a large number of Spanish dialects.
6. Dictionary Linguee
You probably used Dictionary Linguee in your high school language class (I know I did). It’s a reliable translation tool that puts foreign words into context. The app supports several languages and allows you to conduct bidirectional searches. This means that you can search for translations in both English to Chinese or Chinese to English (for example).
As soon as you type a word into the search bar, Dictionary Linguee presents you with a definition. This comes from its editorial dictionary assembled by a team of lexicographers, so you know you can trust it.
