Use your iPhone as a language teacher

Do you need to ask “where is the service?” in German or “what kind of cinema do you like?” in Italian? Now you can do it for free if you have an iPhone.

Coolgorilla announced on Wednesday the launch of iPhone Translator, which allows English-speaking iPhone users to search for phrases in French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and German.

The iPhone Translator is essentially a version of Coolgorilla’s Talking Mobile Phrase Books for Nokia and Sony Ericsson mobile phones, released earlier this year. This service offers travelers text and audio translations of commonly used words and phrases, spoken by a person in their native language.
