When I had to chance to go around Europe, I had my ASUS EEE with a Systran home translator. It was awkward carrying it around and have to say really geeky. All I really want is a good anguage translator for my Blackberry. Finding a good one is really hard and they often don’t translate properly. But things are changing and I’m happy to say I found one translator software worth installing.
BBtrans is app that allows you to translate sentences to different major languages. It uses different online translation services such a Systrans ( Babel Fish ), Google Translate and Freetranslation. I prefer using Systran or Google Translate as the source of the translation.
Overall bbtrans is going to be a very useful app for travelers who don’t want to carry anything bulky.

Navita – Translator
Navita translator is a free five language translator for your Blackberry. Its similar to bbtrans also made with a very simple interface. I don’t know what translation engine they are using but it seems to be okay and fast enough. My officemate claims the German translation works well and is usable. I do wish the Spanish translation could have been better but Navita does work fast enough to help you out when you need to communicate with someone right away.
