This profession has also had its technological evolution, first with online dictionaries and then with simultaneous translation services via the Internet. However, the real revolution came with apps that allowed instant translation, which was a great advantage for travelers.

While you are traveling to Peru you may need to keep communication. That’s why you may need to use one of our mobile phone plans for tourists to avoid high roaming costs. In order to make a nice trip here in PeruSIM, we will show you how to use and best translation apps.

Microsoft Translator

If Microsoft wanted to show off its competitors with one of its programs, it is its instant translation system. Microsoft Translator is the most valued app by iOS and Android users, although it also has a version for Windows Phone. In both digital stores it has a rating of 4.6 out of 5 points.

It has the capacity to translate more than 60 languages through text, voice, photos or screenshots. It is not necessary to have an internet connection to be able to use the system. Since the App Store does not indicate the number of downloads, it can only be known that from Google Play it has been downloaded in a range of between one to five million.


This application is surprising that it is rated with equal or more note than the famous Google Translate, because it did not work if you do not have wifi connection until relatively recently. However, it seems that the app has been renewed and now includes an offline mode that allows you to use iTranslate abroad without paying roaming. On the other hand, it has the ability to translate more than 90 languages.

Google Play users rate the app 4.4 out of 5 and it has been downloaded in a range of five to ten million, while those who have downloaded it from the App Store rate it 4.5 out of 5.


Google Translate

The search giant\’s application is the best known among users of the various smartphone companies. Not surprisingly, it has been downloaded between 500 and 1 billion times from Google Play. It can translate text in 103 languages and voice in 20 languages.

However, it is the third most valued, despite being the most used. Users feel that it should be more careful for the time it has been on the market, because the translations fail quite a lot compared to other less known ones.

Speak and Translate


This application only requires the user to put the cell phone to listen to what is said in another language, and the application records and translates the phrase between 100 available languages. The free version uses Microsoft servers to translate a limited number of words and a limited number of times. The Pro version is required for other functions. It can translate 100 languages in text and 54 spoken.

Android users rate the app a 4.3 out of 5 and it has been downloaded from Google Play between one and five million, while Apple smartphone holders who have rated the app think it deserves a 4.4 out of 5.

Yandex Translate

Yandex Translate translates in 90 languages online, and from Russian or English to Spanish offline (and after downloading these languages). It is possible to translate text from images thanks to its visual text recognition and is available in 12 languages. It is capable of translating entire websites directly from the application.

Finally, we know that you have to keep communication with your relatives and friends, that you need to be able to orient yourself in new cities, that you might need help with translation and that you might need to search for restaurants or hotels. That’s why with PeruSIM you can buy a SIM card including the data plan of your need without having to worry about high roaming costs.
