Language is a wonderful thing. This timeless invention acts as a common bridge that connects entire societies, allowing ease of communication and understanding. However, if you have ever been in a situation where you were unable to adequately communicate, the chances are that you already know how frustrating can be to struggle with language barriers. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way, not since many translation apps such as iTranslate Voice have come into the picture. As a matter of fact, this type of application has been exclusively designed to facilitate communication by enabling real-time speech-to-speech translation through iPhone. iTranslate Voice caters to the needs of world travelers, new language learners, explorers and scholars everywhere! Finally, you can forget about those weighty and uncomfortable foreign language dictionaries and instead, approach a more modern solution for your traveling needs. In other words, iTranslate Voice is the translator in your pocket.
The concept behind this app is both precise and user-friendly. In fact, all you need to do is swipe up from the main screen and select your input and output languages. Once this step has been completed, you can speak a phrase, a word or whole sentences into the microphone and let iTranslate Voice do the rest. Few seconds later, accurate text-to-speech will turn your spoken word into text and instantly speak aloud the translation. You also have the possibility to change voices and adjust volume. Currently iTranslate supports over 40 languages and dialects and it’s constantly adding others. Some of the most common pairs of languages hosted by this app include: English-French, English-German, English-Chinese, English-Japanese, English Italian, English-Spanish, English-Portuguese, English-Dutch, English-Swedish, French-Italian, Spanish-French, Spanish-German, French-German, German-Italian, and many others. Of course, these pairs of languages work in both directions. Likewise, customers have the possibility to input text to translate, to search definitions and meanings for common words and phrases in any of these languages and as well to share their translations via email or text message.
Another headline capability of this app is AirTranslate. This feature enables users connect with another iPhone over Bluetooth so that multiple users can talk to each other in their own language while letting iTranslate Voice do its magic. The major benefit of this feature is that you can have a conversation with someone else without having to swap devices all the time. As these functions attest, this app has been designed for simplicity. On the fun side, this edition of iTranslate Voice also brings a Presidential voice pack that as the name suggests, replaces default text-to-speech voice with distinctive and incredibly accurate voices of U.S. Presidents such as Barack Obama or George W. Bush. So, whether you’re traveling to new and interesting places across the world or trying to talk to new and interesting people at home, thanks to top notch gadgets such as iPhone, and implicitly, to innovative translation apps there is no longer an absolute barrier to communication. Of course, while we don’t benefit by Star Trek’s universal translator (yet!), iTranslate Voice offers extremely advanced functions that can really ease communication.
