Google Translate a Life Saver

Four days after a powerful earthquake-triggered tsunami hit the Japan’s east coast, I found a this on Google, Google Translate for Android Phones.

A few years back, I studied aboard in Japan. In the beginning, it wasn’t easy living there, since I only knew the very basics of the language. The part that made it even harder was that even though I studied for countless hours, I still had a hard time understanding what they said. But eventually, with time, the words and phrases started to come together and make more sense.

During my time aboard, I’ve lived in Taiwan and Japan and Google’s Mobile App Google Translate would have a been a life saver. There’s even a mobile app called Google Goggles for the Android Phone that allows you to translate text capture by your camera into your choice of language.
I’m astonished by the technological advancement made in natural language processing and voice recognition. Those two applications would have helped me open up more and get a better grip on what’s going on around me.

I recommend these two application for anyone adventuring to a foreign county.
