Man traveling with smartphone

Google Translate

Google Translate (iOS, Android) is an extremely useful app to have on your smartphone. Not only can it translate text between 103 different languages, but it also offers instant camera translation for 59 languages. You can even hold your cell phone camera up to a road sign, and the app will immediately translate what it says.

Even if you’re not traveling, this app comes in handy for translating everyday words, phrases, and conversations. Need some help with your language homework? Talking to a relative who doesn't speak English? Just pull up the Google Translate app and you’ll be good to go.


When you’re having a face-to-face conversation, you don’t necessarily have time to type everything out. That’s where iTranslate (iOS, Android) comes in. It can easily translate voice-to-voice conversations in real-time in over 100 different languages, including Arabic, Japanese, Swedish, and many others. This voice translator app also features a phrasebook with over 250 predefined phrases, visual dictionaries, offline translations, and more. It’s a must for any traveler, student, or professional.


Track progress as you start with the basics and move on to master complicated sentence structure.

If you’re interested in learning a language rather than needing to translate with an app, download Duolingo (iOS, Android). Over 300 million people have used the app to learn languages like Spanish, German, Italian, and Russian. The app is designed to make learning easy, fun, and fast. Plus, you can track your progress as you start with the basics, like pronouns and food, and move on to master more complicated sentence structure. It’s one of the best language apps for first-time learners and for those looking to brush up on their skills.
