Menus in English? Is there an app for that?

Will most restaurants have English menus as well as Italian? Has anyone seen an online, downloadable or app for decoding menus/food glossary? I have the Fred Plotkin Gourmet Traveller guide and it has a great food glossary at the back. Unfortunately the book weighs a ton so I don't want to lug it around. Worse case scenario we can scan it, but hoping there is something to download. I have tried to search for something, but I am not having a lot of luck. I find translators or Italian/English dictionaries don't always have the more obscure or regional dishes and that something get lost in translation. I also don't know how much wifi we will have, so it would need to be available offline.

for those of you with apps (eg. Eat Rome), would a glossary fit into your program at some point in the future?
