I occationally go on a trip, so I've searched apps proper for trip at the app store. I found an app named 'TS Translator', it is something! There are several versions of the app, now I'm going to show its 10 langauges version. Its main screen is simple and easy to understand what to do. It contains 12 categories of dozens of subcategories filled with lots of sentences for expression. The remarkable thing is the sentences have replaceable words to change thier meaning. This makes richer expression for many different situations.
The main screen is consisted of major 12 categories. It is easy to access the proper expressions for situations through categories,
and also possible to search for them.
You can change languages. The 10 languages version supports Korean, English, Japanese, Chinese, French, German, Spanish, Thai, Indonesian, and Vetnamese. So it can be used widely. When you set one of the supported languages, all the app's menus are displayed in that language, too. By clicking the target language icon on the right side of title bar, you can change language settings.
Clicking one of the main categories, it shows pretty detailed subcategories, so it is not difficult to search for your expression. When you click one of the subcategories, it lists up all the sentenses of it. Some of them have blue under-lined words, they represent that they have replaceable words.
The sentence of the screen shot is 'How many times have you visited Korea before?' When you touch the blue under-lined word 'Korea', replaceable word list pops up like screen shot. You can select one of the list or add your word in the list. You can change the replaceable word and play the changed sentence. It's useful.
(There is a text, 'Show this screen to your conversation partner' in the bottom of the screen. So I turned my phone to the front, then voice was played. It would be done by a motion sensor, I think.)
Recent sentence tap shows all the sentences recently viewed, and favorite sentence tap shows the sentences you set as. It would be good to set sentences that you use frequently as favorite sentences for quick use. It is easy to access to the sentence expression what you want to say, it also supports a fast searching feature this makes it more convenient.
There are 4 application versions of 10 language version, European language version(EUR), South-East Asian language version(SEA), and Korean-Chinese-Japanese-English version(CJK) and the price is varied by each version. 10 language version what I'm introducing is $14.99
I think it is good for travel or learning languages. Remarkablely the replaceable words feature makes it possible to express more variety.
