We have just released a new range for apps – the Lonely Planet Offline Translator is a mobile speech and text translator for the world traveller – available for both Apple (iOS) and Android mobile devices.
It’s pretty simple. You talk, it translates. Just record your voice (or type in the text) and you will be presented with an audio and text translation – all without any data or roaming charges.
We are really excited about this product. Making an effort to speak the native language enhances your travel experience and is a great way of connecting with people and a place. This app makes this easier and it also helps with the everyday practicalities when travelling in a non-English speaking country.
