Mate instead of Google Translate
I am very happy with the privacy policy of Mate, it has made me to completely forget about Google Translate plugin in Chrome, Apple native translator and Google Translate on iOS. Furthermore, I can see that my mother tongue is available in the translator and I can use it offline. I’m in my first days of trial, and I will join for a yearly subscription.

Mate for iOS
Matt: very practical. Well designed.
One of the best translation apps I've come across so far. Easy to use, versatile and precise. Worth the investment.
Mate for iOS
A very good translation application, as a rule the latter are relevant. I myself use it very often to translate from French to traditional Chinese and vice versa. The pronunciation and pining translation is very helpful. The ability to download the traditional Chinese dictionary would be great.

Perfect for reading books or any writing
I have been using this app recently and i can just say so productive and almost perfect translations. I highly recommend to anyone who is reading different language books or writing sources often. I tried many dictionaries ios app since almost 10 years but i find at the moment, this is the only one so affective...

Mate for iOS
Great App
Precise and very intuitive app. The only negative point is the space where the text to be translated is written. Too small for iPad.
