Anyone remembers 🐠 Babelfish from the Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy? They built it.

Hi, I’m Alex, the CEO of iTranslate (www.itranslate.com) - the global #1 in conversational translation apps. With iTranslate Converse our goal is to make a voice translation App that works in any environment, even when there’s background noise or when you speak fast. By holding your iPhone upside down you dramatically improve results as well as create a more natural conversation experience. It literally turns your iPhone into the first real translation device. Feel free to reach out if there are any questions - we’re happy to answer them!

@alexmarktl I am guessing the translation is based on Google/Microsoft Cloud Translation API?

@alexmarktl Wow, that's one crazy demo! - This seems to not work on iPhone 5s even though I was able to download the app. Any particular reason why it doesn't work?

Does this work without an internet connection? This would have been perfect when I was lost in the middle of Costa Rica and only knew 10 words of Spanish 😔

@chadwhitaker offline function would make this app even more valuable than it is
