"Paid version doesn't work on Mac and their support just ignore you"

What do you like best?

In the past I used this software on windows and it was great. It worked well and it helped me when I was learning a new language. That was many years ago and looks like the company has changed a lot, because my experience today isn't good at all.

What do you dislike?

Nowadays the software doesn't work on Mac, despite they sell that it works. Their support doesn't reply my messages and worst: their customer service sent their tech support messages that also were ignored :/

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't buy it. It doesn't work on Mac and they wont give any support. We asked refund and they ignore it as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Unfortunately none. I was expecting to use this software to help me learn a new language (French), but the app doesn't work on many different macbooks Pro that I tried with different Mac OS versions.

" An average translation software"

What do you like best?

Good quality of translations, doesn't change the context, auto-detection of language, has a free version and most importantly has a big range of languages.

What do you dislike?

Price is somewhat high, unresponsive customer service. It gets detected by anti-malware software as a threat also its toolbar is considered adware.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's an average translation software so in case you want a good one you could give it a try but I recommend you first check if they handled and fixed their customer service issues

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I personally use it to translate words and phrases for various articles and proposals either for work or free reading and having it always in my desktop saved me a lot of time instead of having to open a translator using the browser

What Machine Translation solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"All the translation I need in one place"

What do you like best?

It has a very accurate translation as it doesn't change the context as much as some of its counterparts. has a variety of languages to translate from and to. it gets very well integrated with the browser so that I can just translate any word I want with one click.

What do you dislike?

Despite how amazing the software is, its support is not that great though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

babylon will save you a lot of time and effort if you use language translation on daily basis or frequently

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Translating from one language to another has always required using the default software which was no longer efficient but after using babylon, the translation process became much more efficient and saved us a lot of time.
