Here’s a great app for anyone travelling abroad.SpeechTrans for iPhone can instantly translate voice recordings or text. You can also type a word or phrase for an instant text translation.
We tested the Spanish version, and it worked very well. The app quickly dictates your recording back to you in a male or female voice that is natural and easy to understand.
It’s not a pretty app — see the screenshot — but it will do the job. It’s also a bit annoying that you have to download a separate app for each of the nine supported languages, but the developer says it’s working on an “ultimate” all-in-one version.
Click here to download the Spanish translator, or search “SpeechTrans” in the App Store to view the other languages.
