Ten Essential... BlackBerry Apps
For business and pleasure
This nifty translator can help you make sense of up to 50 languages, converting texts in a matter of seconds. I tested it in French, Spanish, Catalan and Bulgarian and the results are certainly useable, with translations of the more popularly spoken European languages being pretty close to the gist of what I was trying to convey. It translates from e-mails, SMS messages, web pages or by simply typing. It will even speak back your translation, however, this feature takes a while and only supports a handful of European languages. Yet for tongue-tied traveller, having the Navita translator to hand means you won’t feel quite so lost whether abroad, at a business briefing or just checking an exotic restaurant menu. If you tire of the annoying ads at the bottom of the screen you can pay to get rid of them for a year for about a fiver.
