Best Current Offline Translator?

(1/2) > >>

GuppyCaptain:
I've been using Google Translate for a while and now as I prepare to travel I wanted to install an offline translator onto my iPhone. iOS still doesn't seem to support offline translation for Google Translate, so with that said does anyone have any recommendations?

If you're going to Ukraine and want to use a translator  then ensure your phone is unlocked or buy a cheap unlocked smartphone and take a local sim out on arrival.

I only visited Kiev so Kiev star was good for me. Not super fast data but adequate and it cost peanuts. 5 us and it lasted me 2 3 day trips.

You'll want data to browse for places to eat, things to do,arranging meetings etc.

But finding women who speak some English is a great start.

Good advice...plenty of recent model androids can be picked up for silly money and you'll have UA and Russian languages offline ...


Do remember to download the offline languages  - before leaving - using home wifi  :chuckle:

Main UA mobile / cellular providors

Kyivstar is a national cellular provider..the largest. It is largely UA owned. http://www.kyivstar.ua/en/kr-620/mm/ - largely Russian ownership

MTS is a largely Russian owned company, http://www.mts.ua/

Life is majority controlled by Turkcell http://www.life.ua/en/


GuppyCaptain:
Thanks Luke. I'll have a local mobile phone while there and will keep my iPhone in airplane mode taking advantage of wifi when possible. Agreed though....access to data is a must when visiting a foreign country.

OK folks use smartphones and so on.

What is a good off-line translator for a laptop?  (Windows OS)   I have millions of pictures and son on laptop and take it with me on trips to FSU.

The possibility exists that the laptop will be without internet access.

Are there any "free" translators for laptops? 

Any suggestions?  Curious.
