A bit of history
Machine translation is one of the first large-scale tasks that was posed to engineers immediately after the creation of computers. It is noteworthy that the most demanded direction of translation was originally Russian-English, which allowed the Americans to process text information (including, of course, intelligence) faster, coming from the USSR in the late 40s and early 50s. Work was carried out in the opposite direction.

Why Google Translate is the best today
Like 70 years ago, today the quality of translation depends mainly not on the skill of programmers working on an application, but on the array of data on which the neural network is trained. Naturally, no company in the world can compare with Google in terms of the volume of processed text information, and hence the quality of translation. In rare cases, highly specialized applications and services can compete with a Google translator, but for the average user, we can safely recommend Google Translate.

What the free Google Translate app for iPhone and iPad can do
Offline translation into 59 languages (online translation into 103 languages)
These are all common languages and dialects of our planet, not counting the exotic spoken by two and a half African villages. That is, it will be very difficult for you to find a person on the Internet with whom it will be impossible to communicate through Google Translate. At the same time, 59 languages are available for offline download (separately) and use without an Internet connection.
You can download language packs in the Program Settings in the Offline Translation section.
You can enter a word (phrase) either manually or by voice.
If necessary, the translated phrase can be read out by clicking on the speaker icon.
In addition, the translation can be enlarged to full screen by pressing this button.
Conversation mode (instant automatic voice translation) in 32 languages
If you go to a foreign-language country and try to communicate with people on the street, then instead of text input it will be much more convenient to use voice input. You say the phrase in your native language into the microphone of your smartphone or tablet, and Google Translate instantly responds through the speakers in the language of the local native.
This translation is currently available for 32 directions, including Russian, English, German, French and other languages.
Translation from camera or photo into 37 languages
Another problem that the interpreter from Google can solve is the translation of inscriptions, tablets, signboards without text input. For example, when making a voyage in Asia, you don't have to install all the necessary keyboards with hieroglyphs on your iPhone, you just need to point the camera at a sign with a Chinese or Japanese inscription, and the application independently recognizes and translates text from or into 37 languages. You can recognize the text on the uploaded image in the same way, or even draw from memory the characters you saw the day before (Google Translate recognizes handwritten text in 93 languages).
Phrasebook - your own list of necessary words and phrases
It will not be superfluous to take advantage of the opportunity to create your own phrasebook. The application allows you to mark and save translations of words and expressions for later use. All languages are supported. To save, click the star. All saved translations will be automatically placed in the tab of the same name.
Just write your text by hand and translate it into any of the 93 languages available.

It is very convenient to use the application even for a novice user, the interface is simple and concise, all operations are performed in several movements. At the same time, like most other Google services, the translator does not imply a waste of user funds and works completely free of charge.
