You never know when you're going to need something translated into German, French, Japanese or even Australian English. Thankfully, there's a new app available for the Windows Phone 8 that many who need translation often will find helpful.
The new translation app, called iTranslate, allows you to quickly and accurately translate text, photos and even voice into 80 languages. Since it was released, developers have been working around the clock to refine its features, and the app has been receiving rave reviews ever since--for its ease of use, intuitive features and cost.
The app offers a lot of features that make it easy to use. Users can speak right into the headphone and have the app play back their phrase in the preferred language, making the application perfect for anyone traveling in a foreign country. It also comes with a camera-lens mode, which launches any time a user fires up their camera, making it possible for users to translate words by taking a picture.
What sets iTranslate apart from other translation apps is how truly smart it is. Need to translate something into a language's specific dialect? iTranslate can do that; it can even distinguish between the Spanish spoken in Spain and the Spanish spoken in Mexico. Want to save a common phrase for the next time you're in a coffee shop in a foreign land and need a grande latte? No problem, the app automatically saves phrases to its clipboard, making it easy for you to access them at a later time.
If all this sounds too good to be true, it's not. And if you think you're going to have to pay a lump sum to have this powerful new translation app in the palm of your hand, you won't.
It's available for Free Download.
If there's a downside, which has been called one of Window's most impressive achievements, it's that some of the features aren't available when you're offline. Other than that, iTranslate puts the power of the spoken word in the palm of your hand.
