Read + Hear Translation with Google Translate App for iPhone and Android

Yesterday I came across this awesome little app developed by Google Mobile bringing Google’s translation service on iPhone and Android.

The noticeable thing about this Google Translate app is, we can listen to the translation at the same time, we can also see the full screen language script in which the translation is made. This gives a fairly nice view of the language script, good if you want to learn how to write like that. We can also speak into this app instead of writing.

Google Translation app for iPhone and Android

Translate words and phrases between more than 50 languages using Google Translate for iOS. For most languages, you can speak your phrases and hear the corresponding translations.

  • Access your translation history, even when you’re offline
  • Spell out the translation of non-Latin script languages (e.g. Chinese, Japanese, etc.) in Latin characters to read it phonetically (e.g. Pinyin, Romaji)
