Spanish Translator and Dictionary - SpanishDict
By Curiosity Media
5 STARS out of 5

This free translator, dictionary is easiest for me to use. I lost a Spanish speaking co-worker so now I need to step up and figure out how I am going to get my message across to my parents. I can input the word in English and it will give me the Spanish. If I input the Spanish word or phrase from the parent it will give the English translation. So grateful! I told the parents through an interpreter at a meeting and they loaded it immediately. Now we can use the same translator/dictionary app to do our translating.

This app was suggested to me by a English speaking physical therapist who uses it to speak to patients whose English is a second language.

When I tried Google Translate, I was impressed by how easy it was to use. Select the languages you need - then speak or write in 40 languages or take a snap shot of the word (in 26 languages) you want translated. It is as easy as that.
