When you travel abroad, you have no choice but to talk with the locals for your basic needs and if you have a language barrier with the country you are in, it would be extremely difficult for you.
Workable tech solutions include using a translator app in your phone or if you have money to burn, get those highly inaccurate handheld translators to help you explore around. I was embarrassed when I tried to impress our tour guide in Seoul, Korea using a handheld translator. It gave a really bad translation that the tour guide was shocked and then laughed when she realized that the voice came from a handheld translator. Translator apps are okay if you only need to translate words, but if you need to explain something to the locals, the results could be confusing. When on business trips there is a need to talk to more than one person simultaneously, making the phone translator app or a handheld translator useless.
The problem with apps and handheld translators is that they are only focused on the translation itself. Handheld translators need to be passed back & forth, you have to press buttons and you need to hold the device close to the speakers mouth that it's not practical when you need to use it for a long time and with the risk of the Covid-19 pandemic, this is dangerous and should be avoided. Phone apps for both Android and iOS have the same problems. Also, it does not have the capability to translate and transcribe making it unusable in long conversations that need to be translated.
Zero is the answer. With a light metal body, size of 4cm x 1.5cm x 7mm and inserted into a case just almost the size of a business card I could not even feel that it's there. It can be easily stored in your bag, wallet or even inside your shirt pocket without any hassle.
Installation is fast, the app is available from Google Play Store and Huawei App Gallery. Just insert the device in your phone, click the app and you now have the most accurate and most powerful translator in your hands.
The Zero translator so far is the best translator that I tried. What I'm impressed about the Zero translator is the feature where it could store all the conversations on the phone and the option to either save it for future use or to send the logs of the conversations via email.
Ayant a transiger pour affaires avec des allemands, des chinois et des coréens... on pourra se parler dans notre langue d’origine et arrêter de se parler dans un anglais exécrable... merci
when it is delivered to me ... I will experiment with all the foreigners that I will see on the streets and I will advertise this priceless object!
I love this device. I have an android phone and have no issues. I am going to the Baltic towards the end of the year which is why a bought it. Very easy to use. So far impressed
I followed this on crowd funding, and because it mentioned my native language, Cantonese.
I do not travel abroad much, but my wife wants to learn my dialect of Chinese.
Many apps out there, including google etc only cater for the Mandarin dialect, so for her, this is a difficult task.
I waited for the funding to complete, I followed the updates and notifications, and then eventually a parcel arrived.
It was smaller than I expected, and only requires a USB-C connection and an app to download.
My first tests was basic english to cantonese and back, it worked well. The second test was trialing the Zero with my Mandarin speaking friend, and to our amazement, it translated what I spoke from Cantonese into Mandarin, and her Mandarin into Cantonese with some precision. Truly some smarts under that softwares bonnet.
My wife is now able to test herself using the app and microphone without my having to be there to nag her (or laugh) at her attempts at the language.
Great job, Timekettle!
