Google Translate on the Train

11th April 2018

Someone on the train is talking about an exciting new app that a friend of his discovered. It lets you translate words from other languages, so you can pass a phone around your friends while you’re in a restaurant, so you can read the menu.

He then followed up with: “I think it’s Google Translate”. Completely as if he had never heard of Google, or the ability to translate words.
