"Needs to be improved"

What do you like best?

Bing translator can do single word translations well. I have used it on my windows phone it is ok if you want to translate quick by voice chatting. I think that it has nice mobile application in terms of user interface is very minimalistic and easy to use.

What do you dislike?

Bing translator is not a great translator for long paragraphs. It gives a lot of wrong translations with combining two or more words together and cannot make a straight sentence if you want to translation with words which can have more than one meaning. ı think that offline version would be great for this in order to make difference against the other popular translations in the web.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Mobile application of Bing translator is quite useful I can suggest that who are looking for different translators. Other than that, If you want to translate long words I really can not suggest because it has not really good translation capabilities at all.

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

I have used bing translator in my Windows phone because it was already installed. When i need quick translations it was nice. I have used it on my business vacations for example ordering food in different languages which was nice.

"Great Performance even for sentences"

What do you like best?

I think that Microsoft give great importance to Bing Translator because I have used the other two big translators in the market and I am pretty impressed for the Bing Translator. Even it has need to be improved as for more human translation, Also the interface of the android app is great! It is also compatible with the smart watches. It has also translation support from taking a photograph which is a cool feature. It does not translate very well but you can complete where it chugs.

What do you dislike?

It does not support speak feature for all languages which is pretty disappointing. But most of the trending language supports available for it. Sometimes the translation accuracy is not great. Needs to be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend everyone to use Android App ( No idea for the iOS) because it has smooth interface and if you are using trending languages it is very useful to use speak to translate.

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

I have used Bing Translator as an android app if i need quick translations for a word which means i am using it as a dictionary.

"Great User Interface, Bad quality of translation"

What do you like best?

I can say that Bing Translator has nice user interface, good looking and seems professional. It has also mobile applications which is must have in today, their user interfaces are good also. I think I can only use it for like a dictionary but nothing more at all. Voice to text is also nicely engineered but I think they should focus on translations because combining a good translation algorithm with a good looking user interface this translator can be on top against others.

What do you dislike?

Bing Translator has incredible mistakes in translation for long sentences. I have tried it after trying other translators but this also is not good at all. Translation algorithm should be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a nice looking translator, this is the right choice but do not expect perfect translations at all. I recommend that you can use it for quick one sentence translations or even for one word but nothing more.

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

Used it for everything I have needed for translation for my business papers and used it for quick translations when i stuck talking with foreigners etc.

"Pretty useful for simple translations"

What do you like best?

Bing Translator has nice capabilities for translating single words but I can not say the same thing even for sentences with not more than 12 words. I think that it is useful for its simple interface,ease of usability, mobile application has voice to text and translate directly from voice features. These are nice and innovative for a basic translator. Also i liked the share button which i did not see those in other translators.

What do you dislike?

Bing Translator has awful results for translating sentences containing not more than 12 words. I think that it has not really good translation logic and translates very different in my language.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It has nice mobile app but translation capabilities still needs to be improved. So I suggest you to try its mobile app because it has voice to text can be useful for quick translations and direct translation from one language to another. If you are using web version of it, i suggest you to be careful and double check for the long sentences in order to make sure it is accurate.

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

I am using Bing Translator ( Microsoft Translator in mobile app ) for the quick simple translations. I am planning to use its voice to text feature when I go to trip for another countries.

"Bing Translator, Nice and Easy to use"

What do you like best?

Even though it has a simple design, it is powerful, you don´t need to go through complicated menues or steps to get the job done. Just copy the word, text or url and voila you have results. It has many languages to choose from, in my case, I have use it to translate text from chines and japanes manuals to english and/or spanish wih no problem.

What do you dislike?

It has some weakness on grammar and spelling, when sentences are long, you have to double check its meaning.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a simple way to get translations done, this is your choice.

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

It is interface is so simple that can be used with no fear. But simple doesn´t mean unefficient. When dealing with business or personal information it is an excellent translator, you just a need an url to translate web pages quickly.

"Effective translator with minimalistic design"

What do you like best?

Bing Translator has a lot of language choices but I have used only Turkish-English and Turkish-German. I have switched from another translators and this does its duty well. If you want to convert long passages, it may still cause grammatical problems but there were not a big problem for me. So in overall it saves you a lot of time.

What do you dislike?

It has speak voice only in english which is a bad for other language learners or if you want to learn how to spell the word except in english.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think that if people are looking for a free, minimalistic, easy to use translator, Bing Translator is a nice solution for that. I am using it on both my iPhone ( as an app) and PC via web.

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

I am using Bing Translator for my reports in order to double check the grammar and spelling to provide perfect report. I realized that it saves me a lot of time when I copy-paste and check by sentences that I am not really sure about its grammar.

"Nice looking UI, lacking of needed features."

What do you like best?

Really straightforward utility. Brings a Minimalist UI to the table with many functionalities.

What do you dislike?

You should be able to edit wrong translation meanings, It won't allow you to edit the translation the web app does, yet You can see the meanings and different translation options when hovering with the mouse cursor.

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

Sometimes i need to visit foreign sites to get to know a software or application, tools like Bing Translation helps me out with this task easily. Although you might stumble upon with weird or too literal translations, It will deliver.
