Voice and text translators appear to be a dime a dozen. They can be online, they can be mobile, or they can be self contained with one or maybe two languages.
Thanks to Linguatec Apps Voice Translator, you can forget the rest, as they are the best.
Not withstanding the educational value of true computer based learning apps, but you cannot take your desktop or even your laptop every where you go. Your iPhone however, combined with the Linguatec app can go wherever you go.
The app has an extremely impressive range (66 total) of translations, including but not limited to;
- Chinese (Simplified) and Chinese (Traditional
I was extremely impressed that it also showed the language that I grew up with, despite it being a dying form; Yiddish.
It includes accurate speech recognition for 33 languages and dialects including, but again, not limited to;
- Arabic (Egypt), Arabic (Saudi), Arabic (UAE),
- English (UK), English (US)
- French (CAN), French (EU)
- Portuguese (EU), Portuguese (BR)
- Spanish (EU), Spanish (MX), Spanish (US)
The voice responses are extremely life like and can be customized with either a female or male speaker.
Its simplicity is amazing, yet its ability is astounding. You select the language you want it to hear and then the language to translate it to. Simply speak your phrase and select the language you want it to be translated to. Again, it is that simple. If the language has voice capabilities, you will here it almost immediately.
I tested it with languages I am familiar with;
I used important phrases like; Good Morning, I am starving, I love you and where’s the bathroom. All were true to form and were spoken like I was in the native country and not my home office north of Boston.
Strangely enough, I wanted to see if it recognized profanity. The app has a conscience. While it did not recognize nor print true profane language, it did recognize words like “jerk”, “mean person”, “stupid” and “idiot”. So not only will you be able to ask where the bathroom is, you can also tell the waiter, taxi driver, etc what you really think, sans profanity of course.
Take a look at the app in the iTunes Store.
