For the last two-and-a-half years, iPhone users have only been able to access Google’s astounding translation suite via an HTML5 web app. Today, Google released the dedicated Google Translate program for free in the Apple App Store (iTunes link), giving iOS fans the full app functionality that Android junkies have been enjoying for approximately one year.
The program allows for voice input in 15 languages and can provide spoken translations in 23 languages. With text-to-speech and good old text input/output combined, Google Translate can convert over 50 languages. iOS 3.0+ is required to run the application, which utilizes the same speech engine as Google Translate for the desktop.
