What is Helper in Magento

Magento's Helper classes contain utility methods that will allow you to perform common tasks on objects and variables. For example:
$helper = Mage::helper('catalog');
You'll notice we've left off the second part of the grouped class name. Each Module has a default Data Helper class. The following is equivalent to the above:
$helper = Mage::helper('catalog/data');
Most Helpers inherit form Mage_Core_Helper_Abstract, which gives you several useful methods by default.

$translated_output =  $helper->__('Magento is Great'); //gettext style translationsif($helper->isModuleOutputEnabled()): //is output for this module on or off?
