- Google Translate– Highly recommended app especially when you are in a country where the language sounds all Greek and Latin to you . Since we do a lot of international travels, its quite difficult to learn all languages. What best we can do is learn a few simple phrases to greet people while in the new country. An app i reply on to learn those basic words are Duolingo. But what happens if you are in a country just for a day or two and you dont have much time to mingle with the locals but want to get your work done – like say go to a Thai restaurant and the waiter offers you the menu which is written purely in thai? How on earth are you supposed to know whats on the menu? This is when Google Translate comes to the rescue. Just hover over the text with the inbuilt camera and align the text and lastly use your finger to highlight the text to get instant translations in no time! The camera feature is the star here. Or else imagine having to type out the whole text and then hitting the translate button. Thank you Google for making our life so much more easier.
