Question: It is not translating, what is wrong?

Answer: This application needs internet connection for correctly translating Urdu entered in English to Urdu script. Please check your connection to internet and make sure you have good signal strength and you are not in Airplane mode. One other way to check is to see if you can visit any other website using your browser. If you have a good internet connection on your phone the words will translate, give it a second or two and press the space key or the return key
