FAQ

  • What's the difference between ili and other translation apps?

    1. ili is Wi-Fi free
    Many other translation apps require a Wi-Fi connection and in order for you to use it offline, you'd need enough memory on your phone to download each language. ili on the other hand, is Wi-Fi free and can be used instantly.

    2. ili's design is optimized for communication.
    Since ili uses directional microphones, it only catches your voice. Most smartphones catch noise from other surroundings which may cause errors. For more details, please visit here.

    ili supports 3 output languages, Japanese, Mandarin, and Spanish. As it's one-way translator, you cannot change the input language.
