Google Translate Review

by on November 19, 2010

No matter what your dad has taught you, going to Spain and speaking English slowly while adopting a foreign accent does not mean you have mastered another language. It just mean you sound like a tit.

Lucky then the frankly genius folks at Google have created a phone tool which makes learning another language that little bit easier.

Google Translate is a brilliantly simple application which allows you type a phrase into its search bar and it will come back with how to say it in up to 50 languages.

The phrase is shown in text form. If you want the app to speak it back to you then you will have to also install eSpeak for Android, but the app will do this for you if you ask it nicely (which is ‘n glws in Welsh, according to Google Translate).

The application stores up what you have asked for and puts it into a history section – so you may want to erase ‘estas sola?’ from the list before your partner asks what it means.

Other great things the app does is that it can translate whole text messages for you and you can also send your translations to others.

The app is so easy to use that you will be using it to chase foreign students in no time. Just be warned that the robot voice makes you sound like a female Stephen Hawkins.
