Speak and translate with Google Translate app for iPhone

Google has announced that they’ve just released a new Google Translate app for the iPhone over at the iTunes Store. What’s really cool about this app is that it gives you the ability to Speak into the application and get the translation read out as well.

This is the perfect application if you’re travelling abroad and need some quick transation without hunting for a local phrase book. What’s better is that the person you are communicating with can speak into the app and it’ll translate it back to you. The voice input understands 15 languages and the app can read out the translated text in in one of 23 languages it supports.

Even if the the the language you want to translate is not in the supported 15 voice inputs and 23 read alouds, the application still supports more translations from and to more than 50 languages. The app also allows you to star a translation for easy access for later, and that can be accessed even if your phone is not connected to the internet.

The Google Translate application requires an iPhone or iPod touch iOS running on version 3 or later. Here’s the link to the app on the Apple’s App Store.
