How to Translate into French on Your iPhone
So, now is pretty late to be learning La langue française, mais, aujourd'hui, je suis ici pour vous aider (but, today, I am here to help). So, as a shortcut to learning, read on to learn How to Translate into French on Your iPhone.
If you have not been doing any practise with Coffee Break French as I have suggested many times before (I KNOW there are a few of you out there, you told me! I'm looking at you David W!), then do not despair, help is at hand.
Google has an EXCELLENT translation service online, and happily also in an iPhone app (Click here for the Google Translate iPhone App).
Read the Overseas prepaid mobile internet information page which is a goldmine of information and shows you how to save thousands of dollars on data roaming or even data roaming cap plans.
This iPhone app is ONE OF THE BEST I have used (apart from the Wherespresso Coffee Finder app, which helps you find and review coffee everywhere). It does exactly what you need it to do, no more, no less.
You can translate your phrase via recording your question via voice input, or via inputting text. You can save outputs for playback later.
It has a BUNCH of other languages like Espanol and Italian. Dig it!
A word of warning, the app pulls data over the air, so if you are data roaming, this will cost you. I don't imagine it will be a lot of data, but still.
Hopefully you avoid data roaming altogether and get a local SIM with internet.
If you are on Android, and have a similar app, let me know. Otherwise you can always use the mobile (m.translate) version of the page.

A significant amount of time and effort goes into these reviews, all with the aim of helping you. As lots of readers say, I give way too much information away for nothing, and it really does take a lot of time and effort (but I do love doing it!).
