Traveling to a different country without knowing the language can be a bit daunting. Mispronouncing words and not being able to understand them can be a hassle. Now there’s an app to take care of that.
By downloading Sonico Mobile’s iTranslate Voice to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, you don’t have to go through the trouble of memorizing certain foreign lingo. For less than a dollar, this nifty app will quickly translate words, phrases, and texts, and it can do so for more than 30 languages and dialects.
How iTranslate Voice Works
To break the language barrier, all you have to do is tap the microphone and tell iTranslate Voice what needs to be translated. Within seconds, it will speak back in your choice of language. It’s as simple as that. For common words and phrases, it will show you additional meanings. If you’re in public and would rather not be seen talking to your iOS device, you can enter words and phrases manually. Once you have your translation, you’re able to share it via text, email, or tweet.
When it comes to adding punctuations, you simply say them. To ask a question, such as, “Where is the restaurant located?” you would have to say, “Where is the restaurant located question mark.”
To recognize the words you speak, iTranslate Voice uses machine translation software, along with highly developed voice recognition. For its state of the art technology, this impressive translation tool is currently priced surprisingly low, at only $0.99.
The Finer Details
Though it depends on 3G or Wi-Fi connection to work, iTranslate Voice is nothing short of astounding. It’s the perfect assistant for any traveler, allowing them to instantly speak any language in a matter of seconds. This app requires iOS 4.3 or later, and is optimized for the iPhone 5. iTranslate Voice is certainly worthwhile for anyone learning a foreign language or looking to travel outside of their country.
