Travelers who may be headed to Paris, Seoul or a bunch of other destinations, and load their plans into itinerary-management app TripCase will soon be prompted with an offer to connect with a human translator from VerbalizeIt.

Under the promotional partnership, TripCase users bound for countries where the native language is among the dozen or so supported by the translator-service startup VerbalizeIt will receive a notification in their TripCase Tripfeed about three discounted packages for live interpretation.

Supported languages include Spanish, French, English, Mandarin, Arabic, Hindi, Italian, German, Korean, Japanese, Russian, Traditional Chinese and Turkish.

When TripCase users click on VerbalizeIt from within the TripCase app, they’ll be directed to a mobile landing page, where they can either download the VerbalizeIt app or begin their call with a translator.

VerbalizeIt is offering TripCase users the following promotional packages: 5 minutes for $8.99, 30 minutes for $40.49, and 100 minutes for $90.
