Google Translate

Screen Shot 2013-05-18 at 10.05.07 PMWhile this may be considered more of a travel app, I believe it also has a place in an educational setting. ┬áLike any app, it’s important to teach students when it’s appropriate to use an app such as this.

Here are the key features as listed in the built-in User’s Guide.

  • Translate text between 57 languages
  • Translate by voice by speaking the text instead of typing it
  • Listen to your translations
  • Display translations in full screen mode to make it easier for others to read
  • Star your favorite translations for quick access even when you’re offline
  • Access your translation history even when you’re offline
  • Spell out the translation of non-Latin script languages in Latin characters to read it phonetically
  • Supplemental bilingual dictionary results for single words or short phrases
