Turn Your iPhone into a Talking Phrasebook


If you’ve ever fumbled your way through a foreign language phrasebook during your travels (not to mention butchering a word’s pronunciation!), then you will undoubtedly appreciate the iPhone Translator from Sponsored by, the free translator provides talking phase books in five languages: French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish.

For each language, you can choose from a number of categories such as “Essentials,” “Food & Drink,” and “Shopping.” Clicking on any category brings up a selection of words or phases for you to choose from. Selecting the phrase gives you the English and foreign language translation along with the spoken words to provide you with the correct pronunciation.

This nifty tool should make international travel a lot more convenient. We just hope that at&t can start to provide more reasonable international roaming rates to make this great application even more useful abroad. Check it out at the link below.
