updated 06:00 pm EDT, Thu July 10, 2014

Menubar app supports 80 languages, voice translation, currently 50 percent off

The popular translation app iTranslate, previously for iOS devices only, arrived on the Mac on Thursday with the release of iTranslate for the Mac on the Mac App Store. The program, which is accessed from the menubar when running, offers instant translation with support for over 80 languages. Users simply input or paste text and the program provides a translation into the desired language. It also feature voice output so that users can hear the correct pronunciation of a word or phrase.

The Mac version offers support for reading non-Latin characters using Romanization of languages such as Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Russian and others. A dictionary is also included so that users can learn the specific meanings of translated words, and choose alternates that may help convey the context better.

The program will normally sell for $10, but is currently on sale for 50 percent off for a limited time in celebration of its debut. It is available only through the Mac App Store. The iOS, Android, Kindle Fire and Windows Phone versions of the original program are also available on their respective app marketplaces. For mobile, the voice functionality of iTranslate is available through a separate app, iTranslate Voice.
