I think you need to press the word in the sentence and it will show you the translation under it. For example if you have "Mambo Juma" and don't remember what "Mambo" means you can press it and it should show you the translation. Hope it helped, I'm not good at explaining things
It is just one of the answers. There are many alternatives for greetings in Swahili, some more formal, others more informal. Mambo is very informal, Umeshadaje is possible, but I am not sure how common it is. One of the many variants with Habari will do or jambo, but you must use the proper conjugation, hujambo or hamjambo for the question and the answer can be sijambo or hatujambo, or simplu nzuri and then repeat the process a few times. Shikamoo is to be used more formally for elder people.
