USER REVIEW: Australia Nov 1, 2012 by Tracysays - 5 stars
"Brilliant - I love this app, very user friendly and love the audio of the selected meals. Much better than the old fashioned menu dictionary book"

Mme Engel, a full time professional translator resident in France since 1972, has led a team of professional translators and native speakers in each language to build this superb food glossary.

-- If you search “Agneau” Bon appétit will provide you with “Agneau”, “Agneau de lait sauté à l'oseille”, ”Agneau de Paulliac”, ”Agneau de pré-salé”, etc...
-- If you wish to find dishes suitable for vegetarians, just select the dishes with the vegetarian symbol or look inside the vegetarian category; for pork free dishes, select from those not indicating the pork symbol.
-- If you wish to learn basic expressions that you might need in restaurants and hotels, just go to the “useful phrases” page.
-- Vocabulary is focused on French food, but you can use the app to translate dishes and menus in English, German and Dutch speaking countries.

-- 6 languages: English, French, German, Chinese, Italian and Dutch
-- Thousands of words and expressions and growing.
-- High quality translation on this specific topic that no other free translation tool can match.
-- 17 categories.

-- Easy to use interface
-- Save favorite terms into Favorites for quick retrieval.

Sportier ,

Great app

Very user friendly, lots of items. Now all I have to do is actually go to France. Haha
Would be better if it had some recipes behind those yummy looking names... :)

Version much improved

The previous negative reviews must have been for an older version. I found this on AppGratis, and have been playing with it all morning, and noticed none of the impaired functions described in the review.

If you're looking for an app that explains French cooking techniques, this isn't it. However, if like me, you are a bit of an adventurous eater, this will help you get a handle on what that dish you just ordered is supposed to be, instead of assuming the kitchen gets it right. If I had something like this years ago, I probably wouldn't have waited so long to try veal caponata again.

Volume control would be nice

I turned the volume on my iPad all the way down, but the app voice was still very loud. I'd be unlikely to use the app in public because of this.

I had no other problems with the voice function. It worked every time.

If this little app crashes your iPhone then synch it with a desktop computer, update the OS and delete some of the junk apps on it.
