Travel Interpreter is a talking phrasebook which translates English into 28 different languages. Choose any supported language and the app displays 15 topics from which the user can select one of 2,100 useful words or phrases. Each phrase is spoken aloud by a native speaker, illustrated with a witty cartoon, written out in English, the foreign language and an English transliteration.

Travel Interpreter employs a convenient method for navigating to the desired phrase. 15 topics or categories appear in a scrollable list: Basics, Traveling, Hotel, Local Transport, Sightseeing, Bank, Means of Communication, In the Restaurant, Food/Drinks, Shopping, Repairs/ Laundry, Sports/ Leisure, Health/ Drugstore, Beauty Care, and Calling for Police.
