The Universal Translator app you are referring to looks like it has very bad reviews. Not sure if its the same issue as you are experiencing but it could be. As an alternative, you can always try Google Translate https://translate.google.com/ which has very good reviews.

​​

Especially if this app keeps closing down after you type a word. I would say to check and see if there are any updates but the last update they did to this specific Universal Translator app is way back on Feb. 28, 2012! I would say they are not really making this app a priority for their users in making it better anytime soon. I guess the bad reviews all make sense now.

So the answer to your question is that you can expect this type of issue from an app like Universal Translator app especially because they created this app back when mac's used OS version 10.7 because it mentions 10.7 or higher is needed but if their last app update was not since 2012 then it could very well be that this app does not work very well with the more recent MacOS versions such as 10.13 High Sierra.

There are other Translation apps out there but I would recommend google translate for the ease of use and you can use it on any device.

If you have any questions along the way, please let me know.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
