With all the language dictionaries on-sale today I thought that I should mention Google Translate. I have 0 language skills, I tried to learn both Indonesian and Japanese in school and failed miserably, I am quite happily to accept my mono-lingual lifestyle and rely on the Google Translate conversation mode to translate for me, the app also converts pictures of text into your chosen language and allows you to display text on the screen for people to read if you are having issues with translations, so quite simply that’s my plan if I travel to a non-english speaking country.

If you know of a good app you’d like to share or see an app on sale that you feel is a good deal, let me know by tweeting me or emailing me
