Talking Alexander (by Traduko) is a language translation app that makes traveling to foreign places easier because it professionally translates over 300 useful phrases between 9 different languages (the other 2 are in the works), and conveniently categorizes relevant topics into categories and subcategories. Talking Alexander also has the ability to speak your typed text back to you in a translated language of your choosing. This FREE iPhone travel app could be a lifesaver when in a foreign country and unable to speak the native language. Talking Alexander has 2 main translation functions, the first being the phrase section that has numerous common categories related to traveling, with many of the categories broken down into subcategories. Phrases is a good place to start when looking for common sayings, questions, etc. — you will find hundreds of these in this section.
However, if you do not find what you are looking for in the the phrases section, you can translate anything in the second translation area of this app, that can be accessed by tapping on the speech bubble on the navigation menu of the second area. This translation area has a nice slide wheel to select both the language to be translated and the language you want your words translated into. Type your desired text in the box above, and with a quick tap of your finger, your translation is complete with an audio voice (if purchased) that will speak the translation for your selected language. You can also email, text or copy the translation to your iPhone clipboard. Talking Alexander is FREE, but the voices, which are multiples in most cases, for the various languages sell for $1.99 each — which is reasonable. The only things I felt were lacking in this application was a Help section to explain how to use the app, and a language indicator tag for the different named voices, because I purchased several of the voice choices and later forgot which names went with what language. But overall, Talking Alexander is a fantastic language translation application with a minimalist but extremely intuitive user interface (for this type of application) and would definitely be a great travel app to have.
