Italian Pretati - Video Dictionary View website

Developer description

Available on the Apple App Store and Google Play, each of the Pretati mobile app has a collection of over 500 commonly used phrases that an international traveler would need in a foreign country. Do you ever wish when traveling that you could have a companion at your side at all times who you could ask “How do you say in Italian …?” or someone that could speak the local language for you? Pretati translates and provides you with the exact phrases and words, as you should pronounce them.

The phrases are grouped into categories for every situation including Getting Around, Eating & Drinking, Health, Problems, Numbers, Time and Date, Meeting People, Shopping and Money. For each phrase, there is a video recorded by a native with phonetic pronunciation and the user has the additional ability to playback each phrase in slow mode, mark as favorite, copy the phrase to send via SMS or email – imagine texting and impressing your new friend in their native language. While the app is primarily targeted towards travelers, it is also a great tool for those just wanting to speak a foreign language without getting into the technicalities of alphabet and grammar.

There are numerous language / translation apps, however, Pretati is the only app that has video, and all of them recorded by natives, thus making it unique and truly useful. Users can quickly search for phrases, build their list of favorites and even share the videos with friends. The app works completely offline thus eliminating the high costs of international data roaming.

Pretati is also available for 20 languages including Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese with plans to add another 10 languages by December 2013. Moreover, these apps have been localized in over 20 languages so that they can reach a global audience.
