Parlez-Vous Poutine?

Unless you're already a native speaker, having a translator by your side when you leave the country will ensure you can always ask for help when you need it. The free Language Translator EZ app supports over 70 languages in voice or text format, so you can ask for directions in Mexico, rent a camel in Cairo, or order french fries covered in cheese and gravy, or "poutine," in Montreal.
