Free French, German and Greek phrasebooks for iPods have been released by Lastminute.com and CoolGorilla.
The French phrasebook contains over 800 sound files, while the Greek and German collections include 750 such files.
The files are stored on the iPod so users can access them to help them utter (and understand) essential words and phrases while they are abroad.
Different phrases are gathered into different categories, such as travel or accommodation. The software also includes a dictionary and is compatible with all dock connector-equipped iPods.
To download the phrasebook software users must fill in a short form. A Spanish version is "coming soon".
