Traveling abroad can be an intimidating experience. First, you have a super long flight to look forward to, which can be scary for people with aviophobia.
Then, once you've reached your destination, there's a good chance you'll run into a language barrier. This can make it especially difficult to navigate your way through an unfamiliar place.
There's good news, though. There is an app that will help.
Microsoft's Translator app makes it possible to translate in-person conversations in real-time.
How it works is, everyone participating in a conversation will use the app. They will then be able to see the discussion translated into their language on their gadget. Some gadgets are even able to translate in spoken word.
Using the Microsoft Translator app
The Microsoft Translator app is really simple to use. Here are its three easy steps:
- Start - Click on "Start conversation." Log in and enter your name and language.
- Share - Share the conversation code with everyone you want to have a conversation with. They can join using the Translator app or website.
- Speak - Speak or type in your language to communicate with other participants in the conversation. They will see your messages in their own language.
It's that easy! You can even translate images, download languages to translate offline and hear your translated phrase to help you pronounce your translation. That's just a few of the app's features.
The app translates into over 60 languages. Some of those are Arabic, Chinese, French, Japanese and Italian.
The app is available for iOS, Android and Windows gadgets. It's also available for use through this Microsoft website.
