Google Translate easily converts all words of any language to e.g. Dutch. Translate both text, speech and images easily and quickly!
You know the drill. You’re somewhere and hear or read something you don’t immediately understand. It’s written or spoken in another language and you can’t immediately understand what it means. In the past you would grab a dictionary and look up the words or phrases you didn’t understand, but how do you do that these days?
The solution in 2022 is a genius smartphone app, the Google Translate app. Everyone has a smartphone these days and with it apps.
The Google Translate app is a multifunctional app that can translate everything for you in almost any language and thus solve all your language problems abroad.
Translating can be done in multiple ways which makes translation enormously easy for Google.
For example, you can easily and quickly translate text, speech and even via the camera on your smartphone pictures, texts or other things into your desired language.
First, install the app from the Apple app store or the Google play store on your smartphone. Once you have done this, open the app on your phone.
You will then immediately see an input field where you can type in your text. Above the input field you can choose a language in which you write and a language to translate it to. Often the Google app itself recognizes in which language you are writing and thus automatically adapts the first language field.
Roadmap for translating word or text
When you have the Google Translate app open, on the home screen you also have the option to translate a text by photographing it with the camera. You place the text in the middle of the camera screen and you will automatically see the translation.
The text on the screen will automatically be overwritten with the newly translated text, making it easy to read as a whole. Super convenient to quickly translate a text, menu card, or bill to a language you want!
Text or picture translation via camera
It can also happen that you are facing someone and have a conversation, but do not understand (well) what is meant. It can also be spoken in a language you do not understand at all. In this case the speech translation function is an ideal solution.
The speech coming in through the microphone is recorded and will be instantly translated by the Google Translate app. You will immediately see the text spoken to you being translated at the bottom of the screen. This way you can easily read back what the person you are talking to is saying to you and you can easily reply.
It is also possible to reply in your own native language and choose to have your text translated directly into the other language. The person you are talking to then receives an answer from Google Translate in his or her language and thus understands what you mean. Ideal right?
Step speech or spoken text translation
Through this method you can have a whole conversation very easily, without having to know or understand anything of the other language. It thus removes the barrier to going on vacation abroad, for example, if you do not speak the language.
So with this app you can go anywhere without speaking a single word of that country’s language. The only thing to remember is to have your smartphone with you everywhere!
