Instant Translate: Select and Translate review

Learning a new language, or even just bits of a new language has never been this interesting. The Mate Instant Translate: Select and Translate offers instant translations to those looking to easily translate and learn new languages, translation for 103 languages.

Functionality  5/5

Let us look at some of the incredible features and upgrades. The Android and iOS versions of the app also store your translations offline, allowing users to reference translations at any time. You can access translations made on one device from another device while offline. The functionality also permits users to curate personal phrasebooks that can be accessed easily. The tool is perfect for travellers. 

Design 4/5

In most situations, developers of translator apps overlook the need to enhance user experience and graphics. This was not the case in the development of Mate. In the latest edition, the developers have made a considerable redesign of the app, which has seen a significant improvement in the contrast, the user experience, and the readability of the text. The goal of the developers was to make each user interface more readable, perceptible, and easy to understand, a feat that has been achieved commendably. In the latest upgrade, the developers have also abandoned the previously disappointing bugs that interfered with full-screen apps whenever the menu bar was hidden.  

Usability 5/5

The Instant Translate Chrome plugin is quite easy to use. The Mate app can also be accessed easily on your menu, no matter the kind of programs, apps, or browser windows that are already open on your device. The app allows users the option in the context menu to instantly translate text or words on another device. To view the phonetic transcription (IPA) option, all the user is required to do is navigate the settings and enable the option for ‘show phonetic transliteration.’ However, users need to be cautioned that this significantly slows down the translation speed. For the user to synchronize all their translations and Phrasebook across multiple browsers and devices, you will be required to sign in using the same account on all the devices. 

Cross-Platform Use 4/5

In terms of use, the Instant Translate plugin can be accessed on almost all platforms and devices, including on Google Chrome, Opera, Firefox, Android devices, and iOS platforms. One of the most attractive features of the translation tool is the fact that it can automatically synchronize between all the user’s devices, saving searches and translations from one device to another. The implication here is that the user no longer has to worry about lost translations. Mate instant translator is also ideal for instantaneous text-to-text and speech translations. In other words, the user can speak into the phone or whatever device, and the application will speak back in whatever language the user prefers. The voice translation helps a great deal with the pronunciation of words, which often gets lost in translation. The application not only helps you write and read, but it also shows you how to actually speak the language. However, the new feature of phonetic transcription (IPA), when enabled, can somewhat slow down the speed of translation.  

From the outlook, this translation tool is perfect for those struggling with language translation and learning. The usability and synchronization across devices and platforms is one of the major selling points, besides the fact that it translates between 103 languages. You also get a chance to keep track of your translations through a Phrasebook, which you can access while offline. For anyone looking for a fast, accurate, and easy-to-use translation tool, look no further than Mate translator.

The Bottom Line

With the Instant Translate tool, you will be able to translate phrases and words fast and accurately across more than 100 languages, and can access your translations even when you are offline. 

Pros:

  • Has a phrasebook that can be accessed offline
  • Supports 103 languages 
  • Allows transliteration of the translations   
  • Allows text-to-speech translation

Cons:

  • IPA slows down the speed of translation
