Whether we like it or not, we seem to have more contact with people who don't speak our languages than ever before. There are more Spanish speaking people in the US, more Europeans in Britain and more people from all over the world doing business in Asia. In an ideal world we would all just learn a new language but that's not always practical. So, an app like mText2Speech is going to be very useful to many. This language and translation app for iOS breaks down the language barriers by automatically translating text phrases in over 90 different languages. It will detect the language of any written text and immediately translate it back to you in a natural sounding voice.

mText2Speech is a great app when traveling overseas, for education in the classroom, when learning a new language or simply when you need a quick translation. You can listen or create translations and tutorial recordings and share them via social networks, email or SMS and keep track of most of the languages used. What’s more, the app automatically detects the language of the text and translates it into your desired language - even if it is not your own.

The app has a large number of excellent features including either automatic or manual translation between over 90 languages with the text delivered in a normal voice rather than similar apps which often sound like robots. You can share your text or MP3 audio files for translation and create recordings containing audio from multiple translations and even add your own microphone audio if you wish. For convenience, you even get a country of origin flag for each translation to indicate its language.

Effectively, mText2Speech let's you have a 'conversation' with people that don't speak the same language as you - all from your iPhone or iPad. It allows you to converse with others by speaking a phrase into your phone and having it typed back into another language. You can ask a person to type their questions and answers into your phone and the translation will be turned back into English. Recording is great for creating language or multi-language lessons that can then be shared with students and everything will be automatically saved and displayed in a familiar messaging format for easy future access. You just have to click on any message to display a popup menu that gives the option to either play, share, remove or copy. If the entered text is to be translated into a specific target language, two message entries will be added - one with the original text and one with the translated version.

mText2Speech is a comprehensive, convenient and easy to use iOS language app for travelers, teachers, students and pretty much anyone else who has to communicate with those who don't speak their language. It's particularly useful when traveling because you can enter words or phrases and immediately see and hear the translation. The interface is clear and simple to understand as well as being very easy to navigate. Whether you use the app as a teaching medium or while vacationing, mText2Speech is probably the easiest app around to help you understand another language or to get your message across to others.
