Speak Spanish with Google Translate


In The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the Babel Fish was a fish you stuck in your ear that allowed you to understand any language spoken to you. We’re not far off.

Google just yesterday released a new version of their (free!) Google Translate app for Android phones, featuring conversation mode, which allows you to have a back and forth conversation with someone who speaks another language (currently just English/Spanish is supported). Translation companies should be shaking in their boots.

I created a quick little demo below, on how you could actually use this (or a future version) in your clinical practice. It’s pretty incredible. (Also, a quick shout out to the web version of Google Translate, which will allow to translate any text or website into your native language (not just English/Spanish). Very useful for typing up basic discharge instructions for languages with which you’re not familiar.)

    A very nice presentation. FYI, Google Translate is available for the iPhone at this time, although I have not yet tested it to see how it compares to the Android version.

    Yeah, I heard this one. The new version includes some user interface changes, but the most significant update is that it now supports Spanish in “Conversation Mode.” With Conversation Mode, one person can speak English and their Android device will translate it into Spanish and read it aloud to a second person and vice versa.

    I have used the google translation tool many times now whilst out and about abroad, it is a good way of translating something from a menu or finding out which bus you might need.
