Top 5 Translation Apps on iPhone

Best ways to make yourself understood on iPhone

As the summer approaches, our thoughts turn to potential visits to foreign lands. The only barrier to such travel these days is a linguistic one.

Thankfully, with your iPhone by your side, even this is no longer an issue. Just fire up a decent translation app and you'll be ordering, enquiring, and even conversing in another language with minimal effort.

So, take a look at the Top 5 translation apps on iPhone and get that suitcase packed.

Don't forget the suncream.

The reason SayHi Translate scores so highly is that it deals with the practicalities of translation. Preparing your order in a restaurant is one thing, but what about those to-and-fro conversations that inevitably leave you stumped? SayHi Translate plays your speech back into one of 40 languages in real time. Which is pretty much magic.
