• It works offline! Use the app anywhere without the stress of expensive internet fees.

• It speaks the phrases for you! Hear clear translations recorded by a native speaker while looking at the written words. Voice translations will guide you through each sentence. Our spoken translations are easy to understand and recorded at a pace that the New York Times says makes us a better learning tool than the Lonely Planet series of apps.

• Sound like a person, not a computer! Unlike our competitors, our audio files are recorded by real, professional native speakers so you can pronounce phrases right the first time.

• Phrases you’ll actually use during a visit to another country! With the Complete Phrasebook upgrade, Odyssey Translator covers everything you need to get around in the most common travel situations from getting the menu to asking for the receipt.

• Easy to use and not like most apps! It’s a new way of speaking a language without feeling like you’re learning or studying for the SAT. It’s unique because it breaks down travel phrases into parts and you can create your own sentences instead of being stuck with a static vocabulary. Tap out sentences one step at a time such as “I would like/a glass of/sparkling water” and the words will translate into the other language.

• Prepare for any interaction ahead of time and never scramble in the moment! Save any phrase as favorites and reorganize them in chronological order to plan your interactions ahead of time.

• No ads!
