This handy translation app enables you to type in words and phrases from any languages and have them immediately translated into their Spanish equivalent. You also get audio verbalizations and loads of other useful features to help you brush up on your Espanola in no time.
I find it very strange that the developer has called this app English to Spanish Translator Lite when you consider that you can access all manner of foreign languages from Maltese to Macedonian, and from Polish to Turkish!
This free version entitles you to 15 free translations per day, which I would think is more than enough to get a decent idea of how well it works.
The home screen in this app appears ever so slightly cluttered upon first glance, but figuring out what each button does only takes a few moments, after which you’ll be translating like there’s no tomorrow.
The default setting is to translate English into Spanish but if you tap the U.S. flag icon in the top left-hand corner you’ll be able to see a list of the many languages also available. Once you’ve selected the appropriate language, simply type your message into the top text field, hit the Done button, and you’ll have your translated text within a couple of seconds.
Tapping the gray button in the middle of the screen will also play an audio verbalization of the word or phrase so that you can improve your pronunciation as well as your written Spanish.
See and Hear Your Translations
If you’re in the process of brushing up on particular phrases, you can add them to your Favorites list for quick future reference, and tapping the Clock icon in the top right-hand corner will bring up the History of phrases you’ve previously translated.
Furthermore, you can tap the Envelope icon in the bottom right-hand corner to share your translations with others via email. I’m also pleased to see the inclusion of a simple feedback email template which you can use to quickly shoot off positive or negative remarks to the developer if you spot any issues.
I haven’t noticed any major flaws while using English to Spanish Translator Lite and it definitely appears to be very well-developed with a decent interface, plenty of handy features, and the option to choose between text and audio translations.
Pros and Cons

As I mentioned, this app is very nicely designed, and although the interface seems a little sloppy at first, I really don’t see this as a significant issue because everything is where it needs to be and all of the features work perfectly.
