    I use this app every time I go to China. No need to ask for English menu, as long as you have a good connection:-)
  • Great app!

    I am in Japan and I've tried to use this app for translating Japanese on many occasions. I upgraded to the paid version. The translations are really poor. Many things completely not food related translate into food items. For example, there's "fatty tuna" all over the place. Food items on a menu seem to translate much quicker and seemingly more accurately. Maybe that's where the developers focused their attention? I have used it on some Chinese characters with the Chinese translation, and that seems to occur much more quickly and accurately. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this app except as an emergency back-up to avoid eating anything you'd rather not eat.
  • Not great

    I’ve been using it in Tokyo and it doesn’t work super well, pretty finicky. Google translates camera function works better most of the time
  • Can't read or translate

    The app can't seem to recognize 75% of the text I focus on and the few times it does recognize it, the translations are poor.

    The app isn't perfect, but it's close. All you have to do is point your camera at Chinese characters and like waiving a magic wand, the pinion and translation pop up. Very helpful for figuring out menus, the buttons on washers and air conditioners, and airport signs!
  • Great app!!

    I used Waygo at Chinese restaurants many times in the United States. It works great every time! I love how it shows images of the food as well, so I can get some ideas of what the food would be like. Love it!
