Romanian is a Romance language, similar to Italian and other European languages. Tens of millions of people speak the language all around the world. It’s as difficult to learn as any other Romance language. Thus, vacationers and business travelers don’t necessarily need to learn the whole thing. A good translation dictionary app or phrasebook app should suffice for someone spending a few days in Romania, Moldova, or other regions where Romanian is prevalent. We can help with that! Here are the best English to Romanian dictionaries and phrasebooks for Android!
- Dictionary Linguee
- English Romanian Dicationary
- Google Translate
- Simply Learn Romanian
- Romanian learning apps like Memrise
Price: Free / $0.99
Dict.cc is an above average multilingual dictionary. It supports about a dozen languages overall, including Romanian. All languages are bi-directional. That means you can translate between any two languages the app supports. Some other features include a clean UI, full offline support, audio pronunciations, and more. This is a very solid effort in this space and easily among the best English to Romanian dictionaries. The premium version is also relatively cheap.
Dictionary Linguee is another excellent multilingual dictionary. It supports over four dozen languages at this time. Of course, that includes Romanian. The app also features complete offline support, a very clean user interface, example sentences, audio pronunciations, and an online search for additional translation options. Frankly, this one is about as good as it gets. Google Translate has more features. However, this is definitely the best dictionary-style app for English to Romanian translations (and vice versa). Plus, it’s free as far as we can tell.
English Romanian Dictionary
Price: Free / $2.99
English Romanian Dicationary is a suitable dictionary app. It’s not overly special. However, it only supports the two languages. Thus, it may provide a more minimal option for those who want something a little less complex. The app boasts half a million words. That includes technical terms, proper nouns, and basic vocabulary. Additionally, you get complete offline support, audio pronunciations, and, hilariously, Android TV support. The free version has ads and the pro version doesn’t. Otherwise they work about the same. This is actually a surprisingly good app.
Google Translate is probably your best bet for this sort of thing. It can translate over 100 languages online and over 50 languages offline (via typing). You also get camera translations, two-way conversation translation, and some extra stuff. It even comes with definitions and phrasebook functionality. This is the one we recommend first to just about everybody. Those who want even more stuff can add another one of these apps to the mix. However, Google Translate is where it’s at. It’s also free with no ads or in-app purchases.
Simply Learn Romanian
Price: Free / Up to $8.49
Simply Learn Romanian is a decent phrasebook app. The free version features over 300 phrases. Obviously, the pro version adds more. The app also includes audio pronunciations, a bookmarking system, and you can play audio more slowly to really get the inflections right. There are also some memorization games for practice. It won’t teach you the whole language. However, it should do well enough for a vacation or a business trip. It’s one of the better English to Romanian dictionaries for Android.
Bonus: Romanian language learning apps
Price: Free / Varies
Language learning apps is a step further than all the other apps here go. That’s because their goal is to teach you a whole new skill instead of just getting you by. Thus, you can expect even more resources in an app that teaches Romanian. That includes phrasebooks, a dictionary, memorization games, lesson plans, and all of that. If you frequently travel to Romania, it might be worth going the full mile and just learning the whole language. We recommend Memrise if you have money to spend or Duolingo if you don’t.
