In Hebrew the gender of pronouns and verbs depends upon the gender of the person speaking. I am a woman. Your translations are all in the male voice and are therefore of limited value. They are of limited value to men as well, because men would not be able to understand women who are speaking. There is no option to switch to the feminine forms. It’s misleading. If I were to use your translations I would sound like an ignorant fool.
good app but forcing the user to use the virtual keyboard for entering hebrew words makes the app frustrating to use. the back end is google translate, which can handle vowels. I have several hebrew keyboards installed but cannot use any of them because of the virtual keyboard. Very frustrating and disappointing.
I saw a review of this on another app's site. 1. I appreciate the layout of it. And that it is free. 2. Having it not needing an internet connection, however, would be an important upgrade. 3. Having the option/ability to include vowels is also important, and could be done like numbers on most typing apps, or in some other way. 4. Audio pronunciation would also be helpful. 5. Google Translator needs at least to be tweaked. The first word I looked up was שַׁבָּת - Shabbat - and it gave me only "Saturday", rather surprising for a Hebrew translator. I look forward to the new version. One additional comment - being able to cut, copy, and paste the Hebrew text would make it much more useful in letting the user work with other apps. Thanks!
Great App. (Also try iTranslate, which can do Hebrew, Yiddish and many other languages.) It requires a Hebrew keyboard, which is easy to activate from the settings on the main homepage. Press the following buttons: Settings,- General,- International,- Keyboards,- Add New Keyboards,- Hebrew. Once you activate it, you can use Hebrew on any app. Switch languages by pressing the 'globe' button that will appear near the space bar. הצלחה רבה! חיים יונה ז.
Very easy to use, interface is simple and fast. I don't know how great it is for translating a ton of text, especially since I couldn't figure out how to paste text into the Hebrew field for translating (this might be possible and I'm just missing it). Also, would definitely pay for this to get rid of ads.
I don't know what happened. Not only the design changed, but the app, itself is not the same as it was. It does not work nearly as efficiently on my ipad as it did. On my samsung phone it still does the same wonderful "tricks" but the print is too tiny for regular use. However, the app. on the ipad, is nearly useless, as I can type only one word at a time, not even a phrase. As soon as I touch the screen the whole word disappears. Many translated words are so far from the entered words, it is laughable. It would be great if you could add in the translated words, a version with vowels and alternative meanings.
Extremely useful! It will even translate entire sentences. My kids use it all the time for their Hebrew homework. Three suggestions: 1. Add vowels (seems to be a major consensus) 2. Add an option to show synonyms 3. After translating sentences, be able to go back and edit parts without having to retype the whole thing
Nice app. Would like to be able to paste in text as well as to 'go back' and edit text. BUT now that i updated it i have the same problem as bablbabl where the app does not fit i. The screen especially when trying to translate Hebrew to English. BIG prob for me. I used the app often and counted on it. Now it is unusable.
Every RustyBrick app I download brings me naches (that's JOY, not some misspelled Mexican food to those unfamiliar with Yiddishkeit) - and this app is no exception. Having a dedicated Hebrew-English translator streamlines the process & you don't have to get bogged down with other languages cluttering the interface, etc. Todah Rabbah, RustyBrick!
Love this App, todah raba. There is one problem I noticed recently, probably since the last update: i can no longer copy a Hebrew text and paste it into the Hebrew to English screen. I was able to do this when I first downloaded the app, but no more -- only the English to Hebrew screen allows paste.
My husband bought me the hand held Babylon translator ---which by coincidence arrived 2 days before I found this app The Rusty Brick version is so far superior in it's ability to translate full sentences that my husband plans to return the Babylon Sheila
Nice app. Uses google trans which is pretty good. Why is everyone whining about vowels- if you have some background in the language it's not do needed. However to program it in would be a huge hassle. Not even google took that on. Great app.
Just what you would want and need for translating to and from English and Hebrew. The only thing that I could thinkbof to improve this app would be the addition of vowels. Amazing for no price, amazing.
It works well but when I write something down, the Hebrew sentence is written like how a boy would write it. In hebrew, for verbs, there are two versions of the words, one for a boy and one for a girl. This is only for boy, so if you write I am hungry, it would show the boy's version. It is perfect for the guys, but not for the girls, please add that in.
Why can't someone do an app that uses the vowels that were developed for people trying to learn Hebrew. If you don't know the language, it's like trying to learn English and trying to read a word like cmmnct and figure out that the word is actually communicate. The app is easy to use, but doesn't help much, if you can't pronounce the word.
It helps with extra words to help my immersion technique with my brother like, money, a little... Nikudos is a must for us just learning as we don't know whether it's kusef, kesef, kesuf, etc. Simple, accurate, to the point translator. Nice :)
Needs niqquid (vowels) and ability to email. I'll give 5 stars once those are added. If anyone has a background in Hebrew then they'd want to know every aspect of this beautiful script. Vowels too. Last reviewer is obviously a head.
When you type the Hebrew (for the Hebrew to English translator) is there a way to put vowels? I type in bet-resh-chaf (Baruch) then translate, and the translation is; brc... Then I try putting an alef between the letters and all I get is; barac...
I agree with everyone that says it is an amazing app, but I also agree that it would be better if we could add vowels. Some words are spelled the same in Hebrew but have different meanings like prize and Persia are both paras. Google's dictionary isn't perfect, but it does do a great job. Another amazing app by RustyBrick. Thanks.
This used to be a great app. I used it almost daily. But lately I've been getting in error message stating it can't translate 'cause it needs an Internet connection. my phone is connected! Will love it again when they fix this.
the description should say that the translation from English to Hebrew is shown in hebrew letters, which is of no use unless you can read Hebrew. Much more useful would be if the words were transliterated using English letters
I used to like this app very much....although vowels would be helpful...I am a beginner & my class uses them. Today the Hebrew letter keyboard won't show up, and it isn't working. Hope they fix it soon.
This is a useful Hebrew to English and English to Hebrew translator / dictionary / milon for the iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. You can translate Hebrew by typing using our Hebrew keyboard and clicking translate. In addition, you can use the built in Apple keyboard to translate from English to Hebrew. You don't even need to be Jewish to use this Rusty Brick app. :) This application uses the Google Translate API and requires internet access to work.
