Barcelona. February 27, 2012. Babylon.com, the leading language solutions provider, releases a suite of new translation apps in dozens of different languages for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone. In other words, Babylon’s most downloaded translation software is now available free of charge on smartphones.
“The new applications provide our users with a groundbreaking mobile platform experience and enable communication in multiple languages, making international social and business collaboration conversant,” explains Oren Azulay, Babylon’s VP Products.
These three mobile applications are Babylon.com’s latest development and share one primary objective: Making translations simple, easy and fun for smartphones users.
I think this app is something that all of us probably wish we had at one time or another.
Have you ever gone to a restaurant in a foreign country, and after a lot of grunting and pointing accidentally ordered a delicious plate of… snails? (Or was that just me?) Anyway, with the new mobile app from Babylon, this won’t be an issue.
Here’s how it works:
The Babylon Touch for iPhone - Babylon’s One-Touch Translator. Tap the application icon, choose the language of the hard copy, capture the term and get instant translation. Whether you are sitting at a restaurant reading a menu (ahem) or visiting a store in a foreign country, or just chillin’ at home reading a newspaper, all you have to do is open the application, point the embedded camera over the text and touch the term requested.
This app is available in nine source languages (English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Korean Portuguese, Russian and Spanish- with more to come) and offers instant translation into 32 different languages.
