Iphone menu translator

jurmanji Dec 4, 2009 04:25 PM

I'm heading to Paris next week and could really use a good menu translator for my iphone. It needs to be offline though so I don't get killed by at&t. Also if anyone has a rec for a dictionary for the iphone I'd be obliged.

Thanks all!

      The iphone app you want is called "Translator" by Codesign. If's free and it's awesome.

        Translator is a general language translator, not a specific menu translator. Nothing is exists on your iphone; everything is downloaded. If you are using it overseas, depending on your data package, it can be very expensive to use.

        I am not aware of any specific iphone app but Patrica Wells has a convenient glossary that you could download.
