If you find yourself communicating using mainly gestures and pointing on holiday, you can now try your hand at the local lingo with the Google Translate app. Type, speak or take a photo of the phrase you wish to translate, and the app will return your translation, even providing an audio of the phrase if your pronunciations are a little shaky.
