There are many applications for mobiles that can give us translations on the move, when you need them, perhaps using Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G, but how accurate are these online translations?
Well it’s fair to say that technology is improving, but if you’re looking for fluent translations, you can’t always rely on your mobile device. You won’t learn a great deal from mobile applications, and to really get fluency, you need to learn form a native speaker. It must be said that these translation applications on mobiles and tablets are not designed to give you expert translations though, and they CAN help you out in an emergency, let’s say if you’re abroad and you need to communicate with a local.
You might not get a perfect translation but you will at least be understood by a native speaker, and we’d recommend using these if you’re visiting an unfamiliar country.
