    "BoothMate lets interpreters look at glossaries on the go to help handle specific terminology. It can be used offline, which makes it really handy for interpreters traveling to a conference. Terms can be looked up through partial searches, great for speed and when dealing with very unfamiliar terms. "

    "iTranslate seems to work a bit better than free translation resources, which is not too surprising. Its vocabulary can be a little limited in certain languages though, which could be an issue, depending on if you are attending a meeting with a lot of jargon and obscure words being used. It might be best to test it out in what's essentially its free trial period before committing to it; otherwise, it might be better to use a specific app made for translating a specific language to another instead.
