Google translate does the same, and you can download language packs for offline use. You can also use the camera function to instantly translate text, like menus, signs, etc.I love the Ios app - Sayhi
You speak English into it and it translates what you say into the language you've chosen. You hear and see the translation. I recon it would be handy when you are communicating with someone who doesn't know English.
I use it to cheat a little while doing my Duolingo lessons sometimes.
Not sure if it has an offline mode though.
Out of curiosity, which features on the Microsoft app make it preferable for you? I have both on my phone but find myself using the Google app out of habit. But maybe there are reasons to switch.I use Microsoft’s Translator app for iOS. It allows for offline use just like Google Translate, as @trecile mentioned. You can’t really go wrong with Google Translate but Microsoft’s app has a few features that I personally like. If you are looking for learning a language with offline capabilities, try Pimsleur. It will teach you the language the way the locals speak rather than learning how to speak like a robot (all too formal).
I like the ability to translate web articles from safari into english and its accuracy. Also if the other person has the app, you can have a conversation with him/her and it does a good job at it. These are not unique features of Microsoft as there are other apps like it, but I was impressed with the accuracy of the web translation.Out of curiosity, which features on the Microsoft app make it preferable for you?
