Attention iPhone readers, Google just released their Translate app for your phone, free naturally, so go on and grab it unless of course you’re not worldly. You’re worldly, aren’t you?

In addition to translating toward fifty (and counting) languages, you may also use it to speak any of fifteen foreign languages into the phone to translate out toward any of the 49 other languages by means of beaming your speech to the cloud for analysis and subsequent translation. Repeat, this isn’t just a translation thing, but a voice cloud thing which is noteworthy, Apple letting that go through.

Could come in handy the next time you’re in Chinatown when negotiating a competitive price for your massage and facial.

  1. I appreciate the heads up Simmons but you lost me at getting myself a facial. Like everyone else, my use of this software will be isolated to showing off the iPhone’s power (even though they only speak English, probably).

    I look forward to Microsoft’s answer to this as I understand they make great iPhone software.

    And that title of yours — cute, hope Google picks it up on its trackbacks — is not lost in translation to any of those fifty languages.
