Why Mate?

Mate is a powerful app which can translate long texts, sentences, words, websites, or speech. It's designed for maximum comfort by utilizing all capabilities of iOS.

Mate's numerous integrations with the system allow you to forget about switching between apps. For example, if you need to translate an email, a sentence in a PDF document or a note, you don't need to copy that, switch to the translator app, paste it there, and wait for the translation. Instead, you select it, tap Share → Translate with Mate, and the translation pops up right there!

Or, say, you need to find something on that Spanish (or any of 103 languages supported by Mate) website. Mate has your back with this. Just tap Share → Turn on Mate extension in Safari's bottom bar. And, voíla! Now you're able to either translate the site entirely or just select specific sentences for translation.

Mate is a perfect companion for travelers. You won't be lost in translation in any part of the world armed with Mate's offline mode and speech translator!

And, it's even equally good for language enthusiasts. Phonetic transcription (or, IPA), transliteration (e.g. pinyin for Chinese), genders for nouns (German, French, Spanish, etc learners will appreciate it a lot), the speak-out feature. Mate has them all!

And, using Mate's synchronization feature along with Phrasebook, you'll be able to build vocabulary lists and learn them across all your devices!

Mate for iOS
Great translator
I compared it with Yandex translator, and was surprised that it seemed that Yandex translator in some sentences simply translates each word separately without seeing the sentence as a whole. Translate as accurately as possible translated all the sentences that I tested.

Very handy
I really like the totally reduced design. Compared to the other dictionary apps it seems to provide the biggest vocabulary. Great app!

Great for free version!
ThankU so much! Very comfortable and simple application, clean UI and without adware. Killer feature is: disable history in settings! That's really good idea, no one didn't made it ;)
