Voice To Voice – Realtime interpreter, developed by one of my favorite voice recognition companies, Sparkling Apps, is a must have app if you are traveling or need to communicate with someone who speaks a different language.
Voice To Voice – Realtime interpreter, is exactly what it sounds like. You simply select the language that you want to speak and then select the language you want it to translate to. Speak into your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch and it will instantly translate for you.
This handy real time translation app has 16 different languages to choose from including: English, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish. I am guessing that the developers will add more and more with future updates, but for now this is an excellent start. I would love to see Cambodian since my wife’s family speaks that and I could use some help.
Overall I would have to say that this an amazing application and Apple seriously needs to hire these guys and incorporate their technology into Siri. Sparkling Apps offers way more advanced features. Everything that I have tested appears to be very accurate and even if there are some goofy translations, most of the time the person you are speaking to will understand what you are trying to say. As long as you speak clear the app will recognize what you say and translate it very fast.
The only downfall is that this app requires a data connection, so if you are in a remote area and need a translation you may be out of luck if there is no cell service.
Voice to Voice is a FREE application that is ad supported. It is available on the Apple App Store today. Go check it out.
