Hamburg, Germany – Jourist Publishing has released an update for Travel Interpreter 2.0 for the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Travel Interpreter is a talking phrasebook which translates English into 29 different languages. Choose any supported language and the app displays 15 topics from which the user can select one of 2,200 useful words or phrases. Each phrase is spoken aloud by a native speaker, illustrated with a witty cartoon, and written out in English and the foreign language, with an English transliteration for non-Latin scripts.
Travel Interpreter – Multilingual Phrase Book employs a convenient method for navigating to the desired phrase. Fifteen 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 the Police. After a topic is chosen, 4-18 subtopics are listed. Finally, 5-25 phrases are listed from which the user can select the one they want. To ask “Would you please send the luggage to my room?”, the user selects the topic Hotel, then the subtopic Service, and then the phrase. Alternatively, the user may simply type in the word “luggage” and be taken directly to the phrase.
