When you travel internationally, do you spend too much time thumbing through translation dictionaries and trying to pronounce unfamiliar words? Help has arrived in the form of Google Translate, a free iPhone app that covers 58 languages-everything from Afrikaans, Albanian and Arabic to Vietnamese, Welsh and Yiddish. Not only that, but you can speak your query rather than typing it in any of 15 languages and hear a spoken translation in any of 24 languages. So the next time you're in Denmark and want to tell everyone you meet that this is your favorite magazine, just load Google Translate. In seconds, you'll be proclaiming, "Business Jet Traveler er min ynollings magasin!" You'll sound like a native-and a cultured individual as well.

“"Many years ago, our company founder, Al Conklin, sold a new twin-engine business aircraft to a very successful entrepreneur. He had established a bit of a rapport with the individual and, after the sale, asked him straight out, 'How can you justify the cost of this airplane?' His reply? 'What is the cost of a divorce?'"–David Wyndham, president, Conklin & de Decker”
