• New translation app for travelers focuses on compliments

    2012-06-24

    Journeying to a new country on an adventure travel excursion can be intimidating when one is not used to the language. Although many travelers choose to grab a phrase book or computer program to learn a few key words before embarking on their trip, sometimes tourists may want to think outside the box when it comes to communication.

    Those who are taking business trips or hope to mingle with new people while abroad may find a new smartphone app useful that helps users think outside the box. Compliments, an app released by the company One Hour, is a translation program offers not only useful phrases such as "I’m lost," or "I would like some water," but also highlights certain affirmations that could be helpful in social situations.

    Travelers can impress new foreign friends or business prospects by saying "your presentation was great," or "good job," in the country's native language. These translations can be spoken aloud or copied into text messages and emails.  So far, the app offers compliments in 11 different languages that have been approved as culturally sound by a team of experts.

    Interested users who want to learn some unique phrases before their trip can download the app free of charge for Android platforms.
