Translating an iPhone app
Hi everyone. I've been studying for one and a half years, and I took it upon me to localize a small app I've made to chinese. But I may be in over my head. I've used google translate for this. Does it look ok to you guys?
This is what it looks like in english.
I also need help with this dialog. Could anyone suggest a translation?

Because I have an iPod and I like a good app - but actually I may be not much help at all. what does the English mean? 'I know a song that makes [people?] irritated?'
I can't really help with the Chinese, sorry - wait for a native speaker, or find something similar that a native speaker has already done. (Google Translate is pretty unhelpful I think for this kind of thing.]
You've got a 人 on the record button - I don't get it, but maybe you meant 入 rù? (enter) I think it should be something like 记录 jìlù (record).
Do you mean 'Warning - please record someones name first! OK' needs a translation?

I've got a 人 (ren) on the record button to indicate that people should hit the button to record someone's name.
I do need help translating the Warning - OK text.
If you want to try out the app and see how it works you can search for Teasatron on the AppStore.
I should warn you that you probably will need the earplugs with built in microphone to run it on an iPod, since most of them don't come with a microphone.
