There are a few translation apps out there that claim to get the job done when it comes to cross language communication issues. Vocre is one such app put out by the folks at mylanguage, and it’s quite impressive. With Vocre, 2 people speaking 2 completely different languages can talk with each other, breaking down the language barrier.
It works by first converting your spoken words into text for you. Then, hit the translate button to blurt out your words into over 20 different languages, including 3 dialects of Chinese, German, Italian, Spanish, and so much more. The developers are always adding new languages via updates, so if there’s one language that you can’t find in Vocre, you can simply put in a request for it and you’ll more than likely see it in the near future.
The interface is dead simple. Choose your language to language translations via drop down menu. In the conversation mode, you’ll get a split screen view for you and the other person. Push the microphone button to talk. After making sure your spoken word is properly translated into text, tap on the Translate button to translate your words into spoken words and texts of the other language. It works great by simply setting your device between the two of you on a table. The split screen view allows you and your companion to engage with the app at the same time.
Aside from the obvious benefits for translation, Vocre is great if you’re planning a trip somewhere overseas (Caution, internet connection needed for translation) or just want to learn bits and pieces of a new language . If you often have to talk with someone that speaks another language at work, this app should come in handy as well. What else is great about it? It’s absolutely free, so you lose zero on your investment with Vocre.
