Traveling is fun, but it can be difficult at times when you are facing a language barrier. Luckily, there are some apps for your smart phone that you can use that will help to break down this barrier and let you more fully enjoy yourself. Many of these apps can translate for you via text, image, or sound, making your life a whole lot easier. Plus, the upside to this is that it saves you a lot of money on data usage. The app does the work for you, you don’t need to go online and look up everything manually. Apps are less wieldy than using the internet on your phone and they are quicker.
Some apps go above and beyond just translating. There are some out there that will also fill you in on local culture and habits. This can be a great help in preventing a potentially embarrassing faux pas. The more knowledge you have of your new locale and its customs, the more you can blend in and have a good time with your new surroundings.
Jibbigo is one such app available both on Androids and iPhones. With this, you only need to speak into your phone in order to get a direct translation. The result will be sent back to you with both a text and a voice component, so you will know exactly how to say the word or phrase the next time you need it. Currently, there are ten language pairs available with a word bank of over 40,000 words. No network connection is necessary, so you can save a lot of money on data usage. However, each language pair must be bought and downloaded separately at $4.99 each.
Dean Foster’s Culture Guides offers not quite as much in the translation department, but it does have a lot of information available for the 12 countries included in its database. These include cultural guidelines, everyday phrases, and tips on what and what not to do in the country you are visiting. You will be instructed how to appropriately dress, dine, and act with this app. For the adventurous traveler, there are also maps included of your specific location.
International Business Etiquette is a bit more general, but it does cast a wider net. With about 75 countries included, you will gain a very basic overview of what you need to know about a specific country. This can serve as a very valuable source of quick information as it is something that can be studied quickly—on a plane ride, for example.
Tap Translate is another great app for the traveler. This allows you to translate whole paragraphs or even websites back into English. It is primarily used to translate the content on foreign websites and currently costs $9.99 for downloading onto your phone. This can be a very good tool if you are trying to get information on a restaurant, or something similar, in a foreign country. You can look up menus online and have them translated for you quickly so you will not find yourself in an embarrassing situation.
