BBTran Pro is the most powerful machine translator available for BlackBerry currently. There are some free alternatives and even a free version of BBTran but none of them offer as many languages (59) and options such as dictionary mode. Last month BBTran Pro was selling for $12.99 but now the regular price has been cut to $5.99 and it is on sale until Sep 6th for $2.99. That is a much nicer price point for such an application.
From the description:
BBTran supports 59 languages (Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish etc) and more than 1800 directions of translation.
BBTran acts as a universal tool that consumes different online services such Google Translate, Systran, FreeTranslation, Reference_com and that’s why gives user ability to see alternative translations.
