[App]cessorise: best translation technology
BlackBerry owners may want to try Navita Translator, currently ranked as the number one free app on this device’s store at the time of writing. Also available on Android, there is something truly wondrous about getting a device as small as a smartphone to speak a translated phrase straight back to you. The app translates words, phrases and whole sentences between different languages using Google’s language translation service with an option to switch to Microsoft’s Bing service if you prefer. It can even detect your source language. Whether you want to learn a foreign language, freshen up your international relations skills or just use it for travelling abroad, this is a fun app to play with. Users will find Arabic, Urdu and Hindi all supported — but unfortunately you will find Macedonian before Malayalam featured here.
