If you know you will not be getting internet connection and you are looking for a fully-offline translation app, Jibbigo is a great choice! A mobile language translation application that supports over 20 languages through downloadable packs, Jibbigo allows you to pick a language, pair, speak, or type and edit the phrase that needs translating.
Built with a simple interface, it is easy to use. All you need to do is hold down the red ‘record’ button by the flag of the language you speak, say a brief phrase and release the red recording button when done. The phrase will be automatically translated and a written sentence will appear in both the initial and the target language.
Selected as one of Travel and Leisure’s “Best Travel Apps” of 2010, it has an adaptation mode enabling it to ‘learn’ your voice for personalized translation. It also offers fast, bidirectional language translation on newer Apple devices.
While Jibbigo does not have any elaborate innovative features, its offline support and a free price tag makes it a treasured app for shrewd international travelers.
