I was very excited to read this week that the Google Translate app now has a feature that will be incredibly useful for an upcoming trip overseas.
Not only does it offer translations for even more languages, but now Google Translate can store its translation files on your device - so that there is no need for an internet connection to use the amazing translation features it offers!
But wait, there's more!
One of my favourites is that it can give you immediate translation of a sign, menu or any other written text you see, by using the 'World Lens' feature that is now part of the app. (This used to be a separate app.)
Just hold your phone up to point at the sign, press the camera symbol, and prepare to be amazed. Here are some examples, showing photos I have taken as I sit in my hotel room (on a very wet day in Sydney) writing this article, using a sign that is on my desk.
We cover more on this App (and lots of other useful information about travelling with technology) in the 'Travel with your iPad and iPhone' class that is run at iTandCoffee on a regular basis, with the next class scheduled for Fri Aug 5th, 11am-1pm.
(If you are interested in attending this class sooner than this date - or need a private appointment before you travel - contact us on 1300 885 420 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If there is enough demand, an additional class will be scheduled.)
Here is a recent article in The Age about the improved Google Translate app.
