Google Translate For The iPhone – Translates Speech Into Text And Audio

It's a brand new addition to the list of the best iPhone apps for expats in Switzerland, but I thought this was worthy of its own post.

There are many apps on the iPhone that use the Google Translate interface and basically submit your text to Google and then show you the translation.

Now, directly from the source, comes a translation app that could beat them all.

The

Google Translate App for the iPhone lets you speak your mother tongue into the device, wait for a translation and then see the translated text on the screen.

Not only that, but you can hear the translated text spoken back to you.

You need an active data connection to make new translations, but you can save your favourite ones for use offline.

The app certainly improves its accuracy the more it gets used to your voice but so far I am not seeing it deal too well with putting the verb at the end of sentences.

That said, it's very useful for the basics.
