Working in Spain and being of English tongue I often get caught short when out shopping, in a restaurant or chatting with friends. Rather than investing in a pocket translator I decided to give the IdioMaX Mobile Translator a go on my mobile phone.
The program is a powerful language tool that provides a complete environment for translating word, phrases or even conjugating verbs in five different languages, namely: English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.
The interface is neatly laid-out and has preset options for translating between two particular languages, meaning you just need enter the word or phrase you want to translate then select the corresponding translation.
I found the accuracy of the translation very good and it's certainly much better than most of the web-based translators out there.
I would've liked to see phonetic notation to help with pronunciation but on the whole, IdiomaX Mobile Translator provides an effective way of deciphering foreign languages while you're out and about.
