Until Apple gets around to doing the obvious, put iTranslate Voice on your iPhone and get voice translations in 36 different languages.
That’s right. If you travel or meet others with a native tongue different from your own, iTranslate can translate what your say, or what they say, to 35 other languages using voice recognition or text entry.
Select the language you speak. Select the language you want to translate to, and speak your phrase.
iTranslate Voice gives you options to look up word definitions for commonly used phrases by just using your voice and the iPhone.
Once iTranslate Voice translates a phrase or sentence, simply tap on the translation and copy, send to Mail, send as SMS text or iMessage, or, send to Twitter or Facebook.
The voice recognition technology is very good, but you can also type into the iPhone’s screen and get a translation that way.
iTranslate Voice is a must-have tool for anyone who travels, and worthwhile to use as a tool to learn a new language. I’ve spend hundreds on books and tapes and CDs to try learning a language before a trip, so it’s amazing this kind of technology costs so little.
