Craig let me know about a application/service that his company has called Enterpret. It is a mobile translator with a serious set of features though it does not seem to be new application. The information is not stored on your device so you do need an internet connection but it does offer quite a large database. I can’t vouch for its usefulness since my Spanish is terrible but it definitely looks interesting.
