Microsoft has released an update for their Translator app that has the ability to live-translate anything on the fly. You can also point your phone at a sign, and the translation will appear.
The app contains voice translation, for conversations, as well as the ability to enter a phrase and translate it. With the voice translation you can communicate in English (both US and UK), German, French, Italian, and Spanish. Once in the mode and connected online, you simply tap the icon, speak and tap to translate. Voila!
The app also has the ability to go ‘offline,’ storing languages for use in countries where you might not have a data plan. It’s free in the Marketplace.
