Traveling to another country is an exciting and enjoyable experience, but it is even more so when you can have a few successful exchanges with locals. This is the reason anyone heading to China will want to investigate the Mandarin Phrasebook app. It will allow you to understand some of the phrases that you hear, and also respond in a correct and understandable manner.

With over 600 phrases covering everything from numbers and times to transportation, dining, health, shopping, sightseeing and even banking, the Mandarin Phrasebook app is a “must have” for those hoping to really enjoy their trip.

The software doesn’t just pop up the phonetic spelling for a particular phrase or word, but also delivers many “local” dialects and texts and audio translations as well. The easy to use and intuitive menus and screens make it very easy to quickly find the phrase or word you need in order to communicate with someone in the Mandarin form of the Chinese language.

The Mandarin Phrasebook is available for iPhone and iPod Touch devices as well as a majority of Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, and LG devices too.
