  1. Google Translate

Google’s browser-based translation tool has been a winner for years, and the apps are even more useful for travelers. Both iPhone and Android versions work well offline. There’s support for over 100 languages while online, with 50+ downloadable language packs to use when you don’t have data.

You can type out words and phrases, point your camera at menus and signs, speak, or write with your finger on the screen.

Likewise, you can receive the translation on the screen or read aloud, including a real-time spoken conversation mode to chat (at a very basic level) with someone who doesn’t speak your language. Not all methods are supported for every language, however, and some only work online.

Given it’s free, there’s really no reason not to install Google Translate on your phone or tablet if you’ll ever be in need of a translation tool!
