Google has released the Google Translate app for the iPhone. The app not only translates text between 57 languages but will accept voice input for 15 languages.
Back in August 2008, we launched a Google Translate HTML5 web app for iPhone users. Today, the official Google Translate for iPhone app is available for download from the App Store. The new app has all of the features of the web app, plus some significant new additions designed to improve your overall translation experience. via Google
