Happy People

Thanks for the super fast response on the speech settings! The app is incredibly useful. It saved us thousands in translation costs for our tour of China, paid for itself in the first 5 minutes on stage at the Shanghai Grand Theatre. Best value ever. Can you make a European version?
— David W., PM, Australia

THANK you for a brilliant app that helps save time and money — made China so much easier! Why did nobody think of this before I wonder?
— Julie D., South Africa
