Your own personal translator in your pocket
Perhaps one of the best translator apps on iTunes today, SayHi Translate is a smart tool that is both easy-to-use and genuinely helpful. From the top menu, you can enter the Options tab and select which two languages you wish to translate between. The range of languages is expansive and – given that many translation apps on iTunes only offer one language at high cost – this is a welcome feature that underlines the app’s generous value.
Once you have your languages set, you can select your starting language and speak into your device. You will then get an accurate readout of how it should be written in the other language, as well as an audio reading of how to say it, which is handy. The accuracy here is key, and thankfully, it doesn’t disappoint. You can create whole conversation strings using this method and save them for use later, should you wish to repeat the sequence at a later date. Alternatively, you can type your required sentences or phrases rather than speaking them.
Saved conversations and phrases are stored in a playlist for quick referral, and you can even share them via email if you need to send them to contacts or another device. SayHi Translate is a well-presented, intuitive app that undercuts the competition by offering a wide range of languages at low cost. The fact that it works accurately across so many dialects is impressive, and as such, it comes highly recommended.
The user interface makes it genuinely satisfying to use, and it is incredibly helpful to boot.
