    • Camera

      Camera translator worked great until I did the June 22 upgrade. Now it only work about 10% of the time. What changes or adjustments can be made to restore camera translator functionality ?

                Since the upgrade on April 20th I cannot open the app. I have deleted and reinstalled it, but as soon as the app is opened it crashed! I restarted my phone and still the issue exists.

                    • Recent Update has made the app work worse

                      A recent update (month or so. Maybe two) has made this app a pile of garbage. I used to be able to photo snap anything and it would translate no problem. I was amazed and delighted.

                      Now it can't accept hardly any photos. I have to take a photo. Crop it. Adjust it to be better read. THEN try to import it and get it to MAYBE translate.

                      Whatever you guys did.. please change it back. It was working so amazingly and now it hardly does. Or at least not conveniently like it had been.

                      Language was Finnish -> English,…

                          • 為什麼更新了的版本後,拍攝翻譯的情況都一樣沒有什麼改善?

                            為什麼更新了的版本後,拍攝翻譯的情況都一樣沒有什麼改善?前兩個版本是拍攝是沒有問題,為什麼越更新版本,就變得越差?
                            還有翻譯後的中文字,有很多中文的字是錯字,不是翻譯意思錯

                            Why is it that after the updated version, the situation of shooting and translation remains the same? in the first two versions, there is no problem with shooting. Why is it that the newer version, the worse it becomes? and the Chinese language after translation. A lot of Chinese characters are wrong, not in translation
