[prMac.com] Austin, Texas - Alta Vida LLC is delighted to announce Babelingo 1.3, their language translation utility for iPhone and iPod Touch. Containing more than 300 useful phrases and words, Babelingo is an incredibly fast and easy-to-use phrase book communicator, allowing anyone to show a professionally translated phrase to a foreign language audience.
Babelingo can translate to and from 10 different languages, including English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, French, German, Czech, Hindi, Japanese and Chinese. Each phrase is carefully translated by highly skilled professional translators and displayed in a large, beautifully rendered script that is easily read from a distance. With the latest version users can enable viewing of phonetic phrases for Japanese, Chinese, and Hindi (Romaji, Pinyin, and Romanized Hindi respectively).
Each category, phrase, word, and screen can be presented in any one of the supported languages. The user chooses their native language, the alternative audiences language, and Babelingo does the rest. Phrases are grouped by category in a flat list for fast navigation. Simply tap a phrase and its translation is immediately displayed.
For commonly used phrases, users may add them to a favorites list for quick and easy access. Quickly search for phrases using key words. Hindi speakers can search for Hindi script using the English keyboard and phonetic spellings (Romanized Hindi). And Babelingo is more than a simple phrase book too.
