How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

Multilanguage Talking Phrasebook, English-French-German-Italian-Spanish
Select a phrase and see its translation in the space below

If you're going to be traveling in Europe, this popular multi-language talking phrasebook is a must-have application. The MobiLearn Talking English-French-German-Italian-Spanish Phrasebook provides the language help you need, just when you need it. In a flash, you can choose a phrase in any of the five languages, then see and hear its translation in any of the other languages.

You're Speaking Their Language

The program is based on a core of over 400 common expressions linked to the situations you're most likely to experience as a business traveler or tourist in the many places around the globe where these languages are spoken. The expressions in each language were developed by professional teams of native speakers. Their translations are based on mainstream conversational language as it's spoken today.

Native speakers provide pure, clear pronunciations for each audio clip. You can bookmark favorite or common expressions for fast, easy access, or use the repetition command to hear phrases over and over if you want to memorize or practice them. The Autoplay command plays each phrase one after the other--perfect for language immersion.

If you're a frequent European traveler, planning a special trip there, or just want to learn a new language, the MobiLearn Talking Phrasebook is an invaluable tool.

Note: Because of the MobiLearn Talking Phrasebook's high quality audio, it requires more storage memory than the average Android app--about 50 MB total. Installation on a high-capacity SD card is recommended. The core program installs in about a minute, then installs all remaining voice files on first launch in a one-time download. This may take as long as an hour or so, depending on network speed; a Wi-Fi internet connection is highly recommended.

For the Google translate recommenders, that will not work if you're in other country with no Internet connection. Or maybe you like paying the huge data roaming fees. This works offline just fine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for traveling... January 9, 2012
By Chris
This app isn't too bad for traveling. Google Translate is probably my preferred choice, since it is free, and can pretty much say anything (plus has conversation mode). The downside to Google Translate is that it relies on a data connection for the translations. It seems like this app has everything completely installed on the device, so if you're going somewhere where you don't have a data connection, this app should still work.

It is rather large. With my SGS running Gingerbread, I was able to move it to the SD card through the Applications settings menu (not using an APPS2SD app). If you have a device with limited memory, then it might be better to try Google Translate.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best and most entertaining app January 9, 2012
Verified Purchase
This app works perfectly on the Kindle Fire. Only took 15 seconds to download. Once you pick the original and destination languages, you pick a phrase and it will show in highlighted yellow at the bottom of the screen. Just tap the yellow area and it will speak out loud the translation. It's great fun to hear phrases in other languages.

App says I don't have enough space, does not install to SD. As an app that has almost as much as soon phones, it should install to SD.

4.0 out of 5 stars a great app January 9, 2012

this is a great app. it has so many phrases that a person would use when traveling. I am using it to review what little Spanish I learner in collage and I think with regular practice i would be comfortable using a small amount of conversational spanish.

2.0 out of 5 stars Few languages and Not User Friendly January 9, 2012
Verified Purchase
Firstly, it doesnt have Russian which is a bummer. Secondly and most relevantly, the UI sucks. It's confusing and non-intuitive. Im never sure whats going to happen when I click a button. Its also kind of unattractive. Maybe someone will get some use out of it but Im uninstalling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice in a crucnh January 9, 2012
Verified Purchase
As Dioni points out this can be very handy tool to use in a crunch when you don't have an internet connection. Once you have selected your phrase to hear the audio, press on the yellow translated text box at the bottom of the screen. This isn't obvious. It may help if the developer placed a speaker icon at the bottom next to the text to make it more obvious.
