SDL Translate - Chat, Text, and Voice Translation

SDL plc
With SDL Translate you can chat with friends in any language. Just type or speak your message and your friend will receive the translation in real-time. You won't need to copy/paste messages from What'sApp, Facebook or other chat applications into other translation apps, just invite friends and start chatting - SDL Translate takes care of the rest!

You can also process translations in over 40 languages and more than 90 language pairings. This includes chat, speech, text, and document translation, all for free.

Speak into the microphone to input a translation, listen to your translation in another language, upload a document from your Dropbox account to get it translated (and formatted) instantly, and translate common figures of speech. It's a great app when you travel, if you're learning a language, or if you're trying to communicate in other languages.

SDL Translate Features:

* Chat Translation - Add friends and chat. Your conversation gets translated in real-time. If you disable translation, it works just like a any other chat app.

* Translate idiomatic phrases. You can learn figures of speech in French, Spanish, and German.

* Save your favorite translations and even share them through other apps on your phone (ex: email, social media, text)

* Text to Voice. Listen to translations in other languages. Tap to hear your translation spoken aloud. (Supported languages only)

* Control the voice speed and improve your pronunciation.

* Voice to text. Speak into the app if you don't feel like typing. Your words will be automatically translated.

* Translate Documents. Upload documents via Dropbox and get them translated instantly while maintaining the original formatting.
(doc/x, ppt/x, txt, pdf, and more)

* Share your translations via social media or other apps on your phone.

* Introductory Phrases available offline. Great for when you're travelling and you don't have a network connection enabled. Available for Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, and Portuguese.

* No Ads. Ever.
