Translation App

February 4th, 2014 · Software

I found these apps mentioned in Virtuoso Life.  iTranslate Voice listens to any phrase you say in English and translates it into your choice of 36 other languages.  The app is free for Android devices and $1.99 for iOS.  I tested it (English to Italian) and thought it was really nice.  Google Translate also does this in 70+ languages (52 for Android phones).  Google Translate is free for iOS and Android.  I tested this app too (English to Italian).  It takes an additional step to hear the translation but it’s perfectly fine.

Buona giornata!

Winter Weather Means Hearty Cooking

When it’s cold (and snowy), I love to cook.  There’s nothing like the smell of good food to make a house a home.  One of my favorite go to sites for great recipes is our own Village Market.  It’s easy to find recipes for any occasion–you can even begin planning your Valentine’s Day menu!
