How to communicate in foreign language with the iPhone apps

Traveling the world is a dream for many and for the travel junkies it is their life. But the main problem which people face everywhere is the language barrier. And it is not an easy task for people to go on learning each and every language of the country they visit, not even for the linguists. This problem has been solved with the various apps available on the iTunes store for the iPhone which helps in translating simple phrases. They have basically been designed to communicate, but if anyone thinks that they can excel the language with these apps, then they would think otherwise. Here are the apps to communicate in foreign languages:

 

Google Translate (Free)

The key features include:

Full Offline Usage: No

It uses the Google talk which helps in chatting. The user has to sign in to the Google Account and can converse with anyone as the incoming and the outgoing messages are completely translated. It is good for situations when you are chatting by sitting at a place but if you are roaming, it is not a good idea.
