    Google translate will not recognize any voice input when in airplane mode on my Samsung cell. Get message "No connection for speech input (E2)".

    Welcome to Android Central! Translate requires a web connection. You might be able to try offline use by downloading an offline package. Open Translate, tap Menu>Settings>Data Usage> Download Offline Packages.

    I wonder if you can only input words via typing, instead of voice, when in Airplane Mode.

    That is exactly what happens. Can type but not speak.

    In the earlier days of voice commands, you did need to be connected to the web--I recall having to do this on my old Razr Maxx. Not sure now how much it's changed, but voice input for the Translate app might have the same limitation.

    I read, what appeared to be, authoritative instructions which advised to download the offline pack, switch to airplane mode and proceed to use the program as it is used when online. What I am left with is to find an area where there is no cell phone coverage and see if the speech function will work when I have not technically "shut off" the phone--which is the circumstance I'll be in in Europe with no international calling available.
