3. Cambridge Dictionary
Accuracy: 9/10Convenience: 7/10
Cambridge Dictionary updated a hot feature which directly translates English into Vietnamese. It sounds ordinary but in fact, Cambridge Dictionary is the very first famous dictionary which has English ? Vietnamese translation version. Other authentic dictionaries like Oxford, Cambridge, MacMillan do not have this version. However, Cambridge is the first one producing the official E-V version. For its authentication, academia (linguistic researchers, experts, teachers) trust it so its accuracy is reliable for you.
Cambridge Dictionary is still constant with some highlight features of a traditional dictionary that provides pronunciation, exact transcript of words, both in British English and North American English, word families, how it is used in context, meanings and examples, etc.
Cambridge Dictionary?s weaknesses are word-by-word translation only and one-way translation (E-V). Nonetheless, in this handout, we are reviewing websites and apps able to translate English into Vietnamese; thus, Elight still keeps Cambridge Dictionary in the list. If you want to translate in reverse, please read ?Websites and apps to translate Vietnamese into English?.

4. Speak and Translate
Accuracy: 6/10Convenience: 7/10
Speak and Translate is a speak-and-translate app based on a quite famous voice recognition technology. After recording our voice, the app bot will recognize it and automatically translate and speak it out.
Although it is paid app but its accuracy is only marked 6/10 points. It is somewhat similar to auto-translate websites such as VIKITranslator.com or Nicetranslator.com. These web pages? bots are not so intelligent as Google?s so we evaluate its accuracy goes after Google?s 2 points.
