While we don't have Star Trek's universal translator – yet! – we do have plenty of apps on the App Store that can help with translation. Translation apps can come in handy when you are traveling or when you meet that special friend who has come from a place where they speak a different language.

It's amazing how, with just a few taps, you can actually make somewhat meaningful conversations with almost anyone around the globe. Of course, you don't get grammatically accurate translations with most of these apps but it's the best way to break the ice and start conversing with people who don't share the same language.
